MLP Update: The Movie

Back by popular demand--it's another cynical VFTD game! Okay, that's a lie. It's not back by popular demand, it's back 'cus I remembered it's been a long time since the last time there was another cynical VFTD game. (That's trademarked, btw.) No, it isn't. That's another lie. Many of you have probably never seen a cynical VFTD game before but not to worry. They're all different.
This time the game is to match up any or all of the major paintball leagues with a movie title that you think best describes their current status.
To give you some ideas here's some movies that occurred to me. Yes, just the movies--if you want you can see if you'd match them to the same leagues I would. (I'll post those up later in an UPDATE of this update.) Dead Man Walking. Kingpin. The Great Race. The Circus. Plan 9 from Outer Space. Zoolander. The Poseidon Adventure. Highlander. Goodfellas. High Anxiety. Multiplicity. A Fistful of Dollars. Papillon.
Or you make your own movie matches and post them up in comments. If this works out like past cynical VFTD games--well, you know.

The Prisoner=CXBL I know it wasn't a movie but it is just as confusing as this series ;)

Good choice--but I'm uncertain what you're suggesting. 3 not-really-promoters will somehow triumph and defeat El Guapo (the PSP?) anyway? It's heart-warming.

Wow! Here I was assuming it was just a back to xball basics play a few matches and go for the Cup.
Btw, excellent original series was Freudian psychological exploration masquerading as spy drama. Ground-breaking TV--so you get a pass. ;)

NPPL = Dead Man Walking or Zoolander

PSP = Good Fellas or Fistful of Dollars?

Millennium = The Circus?

I am taking complete guesses

Also saw this and thought it was amusing

It's a bunch of bumbling idiots who somehow manage to get tasks done, despite their best efforts to sabotage themselves

El guapo is less the psp, more along the lines of getting thought the season.
