On the Danforth Presents: March Madness Movie Winner

It’s been an interesting two weeks and we’ve tried to keep spirits high during this time. I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely used this time to catch up on some of these amazing movies that our OTD team picked as their favourites. 

After three gruelling rounds, we can finally announce our winner. Congrats to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone! The boy who lived has done it again and beat a rival way more powerful than Voldemort ever was! Parasite, although you placed second, you fought bravely, and lost only by a few votes. 

Thank you all for taking part in our Movie Madness. We hope that it kept you at least a little entertained during these stressful times. If you’re looking for a way to get through practicing social distancing, cozy up with any one of these movies and you won’t be disappointed. 

Congrats again to our winner Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone! Check out all of our worthy contenders below. 


Russell Crowe’s transformation into Maximus Decimus Meridius is the greatest in Hollywood history, and if you disagree…well let’s take it to the Colosseum!…Are You Not ENTERTAINED?!


Winner of 3 Oscars at the 2020 Academy Awards ceremony, Parasite breaks every mold about movie-making as we know it.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World:

Scott Pilgrim must defeat Ramona Flowers’ seven evil exes to win her heart in epic arcade-style battles. Who doesn’t want to see Toronto’s classic charm on the big screen?

The Dark Knight:

“Some men just want to watch the world burn.” A gripping story featuring one of the most grounded depictions of the Joker. The Dark Knight places a magnifying glass over human morality and tells a story where the villain wins. There’s a reason it’s one of the highest reviewed superhero films on Rotten Tomatoes.

Lilo & Stitch:

Words to live by: “Ohana means family. Family means that nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” This movie celebrates found family, animal rescues, redemption, and diversity; also adorable aliens. What’s not to love?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone:

The first movie in any series always has that little something extra, and no one can deny Harry Potter is a family classic that everyone can come back to when they need a little magic in their life. 

Remember the Titans:

“Don’t you see the family resemblance? That’s my brother.” This movie isn’t just about football. It’s a tear-jerking story of how people from different facets of life can see past their differences to come together, and is without a doubt the greatest feel-good movie of the century. Plus, who doesn’t want to see a young Ryan Gosling grace our screens?

Pan’s Labyrinth:

Guillermo Del Toro’s dark fantasy is one of the greatest foreign films of all time. Ofelia disappears into the labyrinth to escape from the hardships in life, and in turn finds herself. This epic story is full of mythical creatures, most notably the Pale Man with eyeballs in his hands.
