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, “Second-Part Sequels“ has now closed with 39 votes. The results are in and the part 2 movie expected to do better than its predecessor more than the others on the list was chosen. Not a single movie on the list went without a vote this past week. Surprisingly, Taken 2 doesn’t seem to be a choice by voters to exceed the first (one of my votes would have gone to Taken 2). The movie most expected to outperform the first in a series was:
The Avengers. The sequel is going to have plenty of general reception and generated revenue! Will it have more than the first? Only time will tell! 🙂 Thanks to all that voted. Be sure to check out the results from last week’s polls HERE.
I wish to thank everyone that voted in last week’s poll, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments!
In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Survival of the Fittest”, takes a look at survival movies.
Now, survival movies can be considered a genre all on their own. However, it is a bit broad. To narrow things down a little bit, this poll is not referencing survival due to zombies, post-apocalyptic events, MOST wars, or end of the world/cataclysmic event. So, for example: We are not talking about 28 Days Later, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, The Book of Eli, Behind Enemy Lines, or Cloverfield. ha.
What we ARE talking about are movies where a person or persons had to fight against the elements and odds stacked against them to try to survive whilst being marooned, shipwrecked, abandoned, etc.
So, think along the lines of Castaway (WIIIILLLLLSSSSSOOOOONNNNN), Robinson Crusoe, The Swiss Family Robinson, Seven Alone, War of the Worlds (Just kidding on that one. See? you ARE paying attention!). Some of the “Man vs. Wild” stuff in film. 🙂
Let me know in the comments which you picked. Do you think another movie should be in the poll?
The poll closes on 9-25-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
