It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 102

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’!

  1. I’m with you. Just need to see King’s Speech and Chicago. No real interest in the latter though and very little for the former to be honest!


  2. I’m pretty sure I’m going to refuse to ever watch The Artist. Mostly because I complain about remakes all the time and how much more of a remake can you get then “remember when he had absolutely no technology to make movies? Man those were the days, lets redo that.” It also just comes off as pretentious hipster garbage to me.

    “Oh, your favorite movie has audio and words in it? That’s cool. I watch movies only before the advent of audio recording.”

    Other than that, Hurt Locker, King’s Speech, Slumdog, and Million Dollar Baby are all on the list to see eventually.


  3. Great poll! Yay, I’m a cinematic connoisseur with 9, ahah. Still need to see Million Dollar Baby and The Departed, though I’m not interested in seeing No Country for Old Men.


  4. Hi, Terrence and company:

    Never have been a ‘Lord of the Rings’ fan. Passed on ‘Chicago’, ‘Million Dollar Baby’, ‘Slumdog Milllionaire’ and ‘The King’s Speech’.

    I admire Kathryn Bigelow’s efforts with ‘The Hurt Locker’, Though the film is nowhere close to Academy Award caliber. A less than stellar attempt by Hollywood’s aged, inept and irrelevant femnists to give a major award to a woman.

    It was fun to watch Barbra Streisand’s seething green envy when giving the award for Best Picture to Ms. Bigelow

    ‘The Artist’ tells a tale well. Even if some of it feels kind of gimmicky. It’s nice to see B&W mesh with silent again.


      • Hi, Cinemaniac:

        Not much of a Richard Gere fan. If I want to watch classic Bob Fosse choreography, I’ll catch Roy Scheider in ‘All That Jazz’. Or Liza Minnelli and Joel Gray in ‘Caberet’.

        If I want British melodrama, I’ll opt for Albert Finney’s superb WWII Winston Churchill in HBO’s ‘The Gathering Storm’.

        Have no need or desire to see ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. Overall, I’d rather watch the UK/German mini-series, ‘Traffik’.


      • Well, I’ve been trying to see many BP’s off my list. In fact, I just finished watching The Godfather Part II less than 5 minutes ago, and I’m about to review it, haha. But I’m only 14, so I need to get permission to see Gladiator. I requested my parents’ (or my father’s, because he remembers movies much better than my mother) permission right after we watched Braveheart, and he said Gladiator’s even more bloody and violent than Braveheart. So I guess that’ll have to wait, sorry…


  5. I saw all of the films on the list except Chicago, King’s Speech and The Artist, not sure if I’ll ever watch them to be honest. I thought Crash was an overrated piece of garbage, not sure how it won best picture or got such a high praise. I guess the rest of the films deserved their Oscar win, speaking about the ones I saw of course.


    • Ah yes, I remember how much you loathe Crash. You and I will def have to agree to disagree on that one. LOL.

      I’m surprised you hadn’t seen The King’s Speech and The Artist actually. Although, I don’t blame you for skipping Chicago


  6. I am not watching movies because they won Oscar. I never really care about Oscar anyway…Probably I am the only movie blogger (tho not 100% movie blogger) who didn’t even post about previous Oscar.
    In that list, II have only seen Gladiator (in TV), Crash (in DVD) and LOTR and King’s Speech both are in cinema.
