He’s the king of the jungle. He’s the king of the pride. And now, he’s the king of Shmoop’s Movie March Madness.
The Lion King came out ahead of The Godfather in this weekend’s final match-up. The Corleone family might rule the streets of New York, but our Shmoopers were feeling the love for Simba and his animated animal friends.
Our advice to the Godfather for coping with the second-place finish? Hakuna Matata.
The first weekend of March Madness is in the books—the history books, thanks to some major upsets. All the madness has inspired us to join in the fun with Shmoop’s own take on March Madness. While we may not be skilled enough to dunk a basketball, we do know a thing or two about movies.
Enter: Shmoop’s Movie March Madness.
We’ve set up a Sweet Sixteen lineup featuring some of Shmoop’s fave flicks. Now we need you to weigh in and vote for your favorite in each match-up. You have until Thursday (March 22nd) to vote for your top picks. Then while you watch the next round of basketball unfold, come back here to see which of your movies made it to the next round!
