Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “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, “Double the Fun!“ has now closed with 39 votes. Click HERE to see which set of movie twins won your votes as being the best.
Did the twins of Harry Potter win over Luke Skywalker and Leia? Be sure to check out the results. Thank you to everyone that voted in last week’s polls and made it fun with your comments!
In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Revisting Oz”, takes a hypothetical look at a remake of one of the greatest cinematic classics of all time.
Remakes, remakes, remakes. Yes, there are tons of them and there seems to be an endless supply. One that has been rumored back and forth for several years has been a remake for The Wizard of Oz. And, while director Sam Raimi is working on its prequel (Oz: The Great and Powerful), it seems almost blasphemous for a remake of the classic to ever come to fruition.
For your fun and indulgent consideration, below you will find a few polls asking you to choose one of the choices in each for casting such an ambitious film! 🙂
Each option/group was chosen for a particular reason and I cannot wait for the results next week to see what type of Remake for the Wizard of Oz you all create! You now join the ranks of those in Hollywood whom you despise for creating such remakes of your beloveds! (Insert: “maniacal laugh”)
Today I ask you…
Place your votes. Leave a comment. What did you choose?
- A Ridley Scott film of epic proportions starring Ellen Page as Dorothy, with Gary Oldman as the Scarecrow and Sigourney Weaver as the Wicked Witch of the West?
- or did you choose a creepy Guillermo del Toro film that is dark and looming, starring Zooey Deschanel as Dorothy, with Michael Fassbender as the Tin Man and Christopher Walken as the Wizard?
- or do you fancy a visually colorful Tarsem Singh film starring Emma Stone as Dorothy with Jeff Bridges as the Cowardly Lion and Meryl Streep as the Wicked Witch of the West?
For sake of argument, we are just going to already give the role of Toto to Uggie from The Artist. 🙂
Ha! Some tough choices! Be bold, create a fun remake and tell me what you chose in the comment section!
The poll closes on 3-27-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” (haha! this was soo fun to come up with for you all! Hope you enjoyed this week’s edition!)
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

Today’s post dedicated to my friend “MoShawty” who celebrates her birthday this week and is the biggest Wizard of Oz fan I know (along with being the biggest proponent AGAINST any type of Wizard of Oz remake)! 😀
