There are 7 months behind me and 5 months to go. As I approach the end of the year, I need to think more and more about the final showdown in my 2012 King of the Hill movie Challenge. That also includes discussing current movie standards and figuring out what system I'm going to use to determine the best movie of the year.
My plan is to use a single elimination seeded bracket. This will make me do eleven comparisons between the twelve best movies from each month.
Seeds are determined by the total number of movies that the winner of the month directly went up against and defeated. In cases of ties, the seed will be ranked in chronological order based on the date I watched it.
This is the current seeding standing for all movies of the year.
