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’!
The poll from 2 weeks ago entitled “Fights of Familiar Faces“ or now known as the “Movie Character Fight Club, Rnd 1” has now closed. With an average of around 27 votes per poll, the fights are over and the winners of Rnd 1 have been chosen. You may recall that I asked for your opinion on which character, played by the same actor, would win in a “Fight Club” match. Below are your winners…click the photo to see the actual overall results.
- Ian McKellen: Gandalf the White vs. Magneto
- Christian Bale: Batman vs. John P. in Equilibrium
- Jason Statham: The Transporter vs. Lee Christmas
- Arnold Schwarzenegger: Terminator vs. Dutch in Predator
- Clint Eastwood: Dirty Harry vs. Will Munny in Unforgiven
- Sylvester Stallone: Rambo vs. Barney Ross
- Bruce Willis: John McClane vs. Korben Dallas
- Harrison Ford: Han Solo vs. Indiana Jones
Be sure to check out the results in from the previous post HERE.
I wish to thank everyone that voted in the polls, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments!
This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ presents “Movie Character Fight Club, Rnd 2.“ In case you do not recall (or don’t know) what sparked the Fight Club to begin in the first place, please read this excerpt below from Round 1 for the rules/origin:

I took the idea and ran with it just a little bit. Today we have created a “Movie Character Fight Club” and, don’t worry, you can talk about this one (Please do, actually, and share it with your friends and have them come vote as well!).
In this first round of Movie Character Fight Club bouts, the same actor will face himself as two different characters they have played in a movie…only, not necessarily does it have to be a hero vs. a villain as the originating question suggests. So, while you may not see a Denzel Washington battle of Bad Guy Alonzo Harris (Training Day) vs. Good Guy Creasy (Man on Fire), you may see something along the lines of a Hugh Jackman battle of Good Guy Van Helsing vs. Good Guy Wolverine. 😀
You get the picture.
Today I ask you: Which “characters” win in this second round of “Movie Character Fight Club”?
As a reminder, this is not a poll asking which character is your “favorite.” It is about which character would win in a one on one battle against each other based on their fighting merit and mettle…not their favorable character or looks or one-liners, etc.
Well, Rnd 2 is underway! Can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 1-29-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
*If there is a particular Movie Character Fight you’d like to see, submit your recommendation in the comment section and you may just see it pop up in a future round.
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
