We’re down to 16 movies in #LibraryMadness, and there were some interesting matchups in Round 2, and I think we’re going to have some fun in Round 3. Here’s what’s happening. We had our first tie in Round 2. My tiebreaker has always been to give the win to the higher ranked movie under the […]

Round 1 of #LibraryMadness wrapped up at Midnight, and I’m not going to lie—some of the results are pretty surprising.
