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, “Academy Acknowledgement“ has now closed with 32 votes. Everyone voted to show off just how many of the “best picture” winners from 2000 to present they had seen. How well versed were you in the subject up for voting last week, hmm? Check out the results HERE.
I wish to thank everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and made it fun with your comments!
In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Notable Norton”, we take a look at one of the favorites in Hollywood amongst fans: Edward Norton.
The Oscar-nominated actor has been in several films over the past several years that moviegoers clamor about. Last night, I sat and watched American History X all the way through for the first time. Wow, not light watching. Definitely intense. And while a lot of the movie was unsettling for reasons such as content, profanity, etc, I found Norton’s performance to be moving.
He’s been in several other films I have enjoyed, such as The Italian Job, The Illusionist, Primal Fear, and more. I am definitely looking forward to seeing him in The Bourne Legacy and in the recently released Wes Anderson film Moonrise Kingdom.
Norton, who coincidentally turned down the role of Private Ryan in Saving Private Ryan, has made quite a name for himself in roles that highlight characters with inner struggles, dual personalities (The Incredible Hulk, Fight Club), intelligence, and wit. I’m a fan of his.
The poll closes on 6-19-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Look for Norton next in August 3rd’s Bourne Legacy with Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz!
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
