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 entitled “What’s so Special?“ has now closed with a total of 23 votes. I asked for your opinion of special edition movie purchases, and divulged some information about my own personal insanity when it comes to them. haha. It seems that most of you are all in the same line of thinking as I when it comes to purchasing “special collector’s limited editions” of movies when they release. We have George Lucas to thank for making us hesitate to spend extra $ for collector’s editions because, as soon as we do, then another version with even MORE extra special features releases that costs MORE $$. Thanks, George…Thanks. 😀
Be sure to check out the results in from last week’s poll HERE.
I wish to thank everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments!
In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Superhero Smorgasboard”, we take a look at the exploding genre of superhero movies.
I am part of a club called “The Nerd Book Club” that a friend of mine put together. There’s about 15-20 of us and every month we pick a Comicbook graphic novel to read and meet up at a local restaurant at the end of the month and discuss/debate. We’ve read The Killing Joke, V for Vendetta, along with others. It is quite a bit of fun. We had our monthly meeting this past weekend and the subject of superhero movies came up.
With the just announced Fantastic Four reboot, I shared my slight turn offs about all of the recent superhero movies and superhero reboots being done. (I mean, Batman-TDKR just came out on blu-ray and they are already trying to detail the reboot). Don’t get me wrong. I love my superheroes, but when is enough enough? The next few years are so packed:
2013– The Wolverine, Man of Steel, Iron Man 3, RED 2 (belongs to DC Comics), Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Thor: The Dark World
2014– Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Ninja Turtles, Transformers 4, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Guardians of the Galaxy
2015- Fantastic Four, Avengers 2, The Justice League, Ant-Man
I have a feeling that SMB is going to be a medical epidemic soon. (SMB=S.uperhero M.ovie B.urnout) You heard it here first, folks!
But, if Hollywood is going to create this epidemic, they might as well do a good job at it. There have been rumors and fan-cries for several other superhero movies to be made over the past few years. Luke Cage, Flash, Wonder Woman, etc.
Indeed, the superhero genre is the “THING” now. (And I will say that I am thankful to see better renditions with the technology advancements. Slowly, my memories of David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury and the badly done Captain America movie of decades ago are fading). Are you a fan of superhero movies? Do you think it’s too much? Do you hope for more? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section. Vote before the poll closes on 12-18-12. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
