It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 66

Today is Tuesday, and for most people it’s just the day after Monday, but for you it means: “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!

What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll, “Bald is Beautiful” has now closed with a total of 24 and 25 votes for your favorite bald actresses and actors! 🙂 Click HERE to visit and see the results of your choices! Thank you to all that voted! It was fun!

Enjoy this week’s poll entitled “AFI Aficionado.”

Today, Citizen Kane released on Blu ray celebrating its 70th anniversary!

In case you were unaware, Citizen Kane is the #1 movie of all time on AFI’s list of the Top 100! (AFI= American Film Institute). This release caused me to pause and think of how many of the Top 100 films I personally had seen. My answer to that question= 42!! Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do! But, perhaps I’m not alone, hmm! 😀

You have a little bit of homework for this round of “TVT!”

Please visit this link HERE to see the TOP 100 films according to AFI and count the number of films you have watched! THEN, answer the poll below!

Today I ask you…

Yes, I used Star Wars references! Hey, it’s on the list! 🙂

Well, we’ll see just how many YOU have seen. How much of an AFI Aficionado are you? Leave a comment telling me which poll title belongs to you! I am a “wielder of the force!” haha. I’m curious to see what the majority of you all are after the poll closes on 9-20-11 and the results post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

  1. I counted 63 that I’ve seen. The highest rated three films I haven’t seen are:

    11. CITY LIGHTS
    12. THE SEARCHERS
    17. THE GRADUATE

    That was a lot of fun seeing which I have and haven’t seen since I haven’t checked in awhile.

  2. Lord Of Film here.

    Comes from having one station out of seven devoted to either an actor, actress or genre of films every night through the week back in the early 1960s and spending countless weekends at matinees during 1965 and 66.

    All of AFI’s selections are worthwhile, but too often mainstream.

    Still don’t understand America’s love affair with ‘The Best Years Of Our Lives’, ‘The Graduate’, ‘Bonnie And Clyde’ and ‘Forrest Gump’.

    • haha Lord of film!!! Yes! 🙂

      thanks for voting sir! Wish I could now spend time watching movies like I did when I was younger too. a LOT of my list of viewed movies on AFI’s list are older films such as 12 Angry Men, Yankee Doodle Dandee, The Searchers, The Maltese Falcon, and more.

      Must say though, I REALLY love Forrest Gump myself. not a fan, Jack?

      • Hi, ScarletSp1der and company:

        I enjoyed Gary Sinise’s role as Lt. Dan much more than Hank’s Forrest Gump.The film seems too fixed and formulated. For a better look at pre and post Vietnam America. Try Arthur Penn’s ‘Four Friends’. Or Karel Reisz’s ‘Who’ll Stop The Rain’.

        Bigger fan of older films than most of the newer
        offerings today. The titles you mention in your reply are classics and should be required viewing
        just to display the richness of the craft and the magic of shadows, lighting and B&W way back when. 🙂

      • I really enjoy Forrest Gump. I might’ve enjoyed it more four years ago when I didn’t realise how manipulative it is, but I still find Tom Hanks’ Forrest is one of the best lead roles.

        I have come to appreciate ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘Shawshank Redemption’ more than Forrest Gump, the two movies that lost at the Oscar’s to Gump.

      • Tom Hanks is one of my favorite actors and his Forrest Gump one of my fav roles. But I have to agree with Jack too in that Gary Sinise is one of my faves in the film!

        so, how many on the list have you seen Max?

      • I mentioned earlier that I had seen 63. I guess it’s a pretty decent number after looking around here. I guess I was always more interested in what people think is a ‘classic’ as opposed to more modern classics.

        This is why I still have Terminator and American History X in my too watch pile. : O

  3. I use icheckmovies.com to keep track of all possible lists, makes these type of question quick to answer. Also a great resource if you are looking for lists 🙂

    I had seen 64 of them, which I’m pretty happy with…still lots to see though!

      • It’s been around for a while and have been using it for a while. It also allows you to import you IMDB vote history (if you use that) saving you lots of time on having to check them manually….

  4. I’m apparently a wielder of the force, but that’s because my husband and I are watching all 100 (from the 1998) list. It’s been a really fun project so far, although we’re kind of slow about it. 🙂

    • That’s awesome! I’m sure that project will take some time. My friends and I tried doing that in college and we got to #3. haha. I plan on trying to complete the list. Like I said, I’m only at 42.
