Born in July, 1955, in Appleton, Wisconsin, Willem Defoe has been one of our most consistently strange actors of the past 4 decades. He has moved easily between Blockbusters and Barely Affordable Independent films. 6 of the movies he has … Continue reading Dafoe: The Nominations
And so we come to the end, and we crown a winner for the Favorite Christopher Walken Media. We had some close races all through the game, but my profile got erased on my work computer, and I can’t tell … Continue reading Walken: The Results
We have made new history here at The Avocado. This could be the moment most remembered from the year 2020…. A non movie has made it to the Finals. FatBoy Slim can take the crown, possibly, as “Weapon of Choice” … Continue reading Walken: The Finals
And so it comes to this. Two Movies. A Music Video. And a Sketch. We are in uncharted territory here. Never, in the history of Movie Star Tournaments, lasting all the way back 10000 years to May 2020, have we … Continue reading Walken: The Final Four
I’m still in shock from last night, so why not more shocking news? First, you don’t even vote for Madonna, and now you dumped Duran Duran?!?!? What kind of Gen X people are you? A View to a Kill was … Continue reading Walken: The Elite 8
Like I expected, the top half were blowouts, and the bottom half were pretty close. But we have the advancing group, some just scraping by. Pulp Fiction continues to be our #1 seed, slashing through The Jungle Book. But “More … Continue reading Walken: The Sweet 16
One of you wrote that “Weapon of Choice” from Fat Boy Slim, would run away with this. And it almost started that way. 31 votes went to this dance tune, just 3 shy of the lead, the also possibly unstoppable … Continue reading Walken: Round of 32
Now that Kirsten’s Cheerocracy has ridden off into the Movie Sunset, it’s time for yet another Favorite Movie Star Tournament. One of the oddest, but most talented, of character actors, Christopher Walken was born in Queens, New York in 1943. … Continue reading Walken: The Nominations

And so we come to the end, the Final Two left to battle it out for the Favorite Kirsten Dunst Movie, because the TV show has been cancelled. Fargo, Season 2 came close but just couldn’t defeat the Cheerleaders, losing … Continue reading Kirsten: The Finals!
I, for one, and shocked, SHOCKED that blowouts won here. One of the match ups won by 10 votes, one by 11, and one by 12, and Bring It On shredded the first Spider Man 43 – 16. Neither Spider … Continue reading Kirsten: The Final Four
It certainly is, Kirsten. In our first tie ever, Jumanji and Drop Dead Gorgeous stalemated at 18 votes each. So, in our runoff, it should have stayed close then, too, right? Wrong. The Beauty Queens, like, totally played The Gamers, … Continue reading Kirsten: The Elite Eight

Kirsten Dunst continues to break records, as not one but two of her TV work move on to the Sweet 16. Sorry Star Trek, but you still did better with 1 episode than E/R did with 6 episodes. I tweeted … Continue reading Kirsten: The Sweet 16
Congratulations to Kirsten for getting the highest seeded TV show so far in this game! Plus, ALMOST every nomination made it in to the tournament. Alas, not enough love for The Bling Ring, The Bonfire of the Vanities, or her … Continue reading Kirsten: The First Round
Born in New Jersey in 1982 (I am SO OLD!), Kirsten Dunst has been on the edges of superstardom since 1994, when she played the daughter, of sorts, of Tom and Brad in Interview with the Vampire, which earned her … Continue reading Kirsten: The Nominations

Due to circumstances WAY out of my control, I was in Pennsylvania a full week longer than expected. My friend whom I was visiting for his birthday was shot by a co-worker, on his birthday. Needless to say, Tilda … Continue reading Tilda: The Finals
We’ve got upsets! The very controversial Doctor Strange got bitten by the vampires in Only Lovers Left Alive 26-17, while Tilda’s most successful role as the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe fell before Constantine 24-17. … Continue reading Tilda: The Final Four
Tilda may be more popular than we thought, as the Sweet 16 was full of close calls. There were no upsets, but only 3 of the 8 matches were runaways. The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe petted Okja 32-14. … Continue reading Tilda: The Elite 8
Well, not really, Tilda. Not much conversation and not many votes has made Tilda Swinton our least popular Movie Star tournament so far. But the show must go on. Here are your 16 top choices. And one of them isn’t … Continue reading Tilda: The Sweet 16
