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 “Movie Character Fight Club, Rnd 3“ has now closed with an average of 20 votes per poll. Your winners for each round are listed below. To see just how close some of the fights came (and some were VERY close), be sure to check out the actual results HERE.
- Denzel Washington battle = Creasy (Man on Fire)
- Keira Knightley battle = Domino Harvey (Domino)
- Johnny Depp battle = Sands (Once Upon A Time In Mexico)
- Keanu Reeves battle = Neo (Matrix)
- Ryan Reynolds battle = Wade Wilson (X-Men Origins: Wolverine)
- Hugo Weaving battle = V (V for Vendetta)
- Angelina Jolie battle = Jane (Mr. & Mrs. Smith)
- Charlize Theron battle = Æon Flux (Æon Flux)
I wish to thank everyone that voted in the poll, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments, but, Wade Wilson beating Green Lantern?? seriously? I don’t think so. (smh) 😉
Stay tuned for Round 4 of “Movie Character Fight Club” soon!
Some actors seem to let nothing stop them from continuing what they love in Hollywood. Michael Douglas beat cancer and returned, Robert Downey, Jr. beat addiction and returned, and even at the Oscars on Sunday, Christopher Plummer jokingly stated that he was ready to star with some beautiful nominated actresses in his next 30 films! That’s the Spirit! I love it!
Over time, however, several actors seem to find their way out of the spotlight for various reasons. Age, family, prison time due to tax evasion *cough, Wesley Snipes*, etc. Sometimes the actors aren’t too missed (I don’t hear anybody crying over a lack of Jennifer Tilly movies.), but sometimes we wonder where they are and if we will ever see them on the big screen in a major successful role again.
I’m talking about actors like Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Gene Hackman (Hoosiers), Bridget Fonda (Jackie Brown), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), Sean Connery (Dr. No), Denise Richards (I’m only kidding here, folks! Only kidding!), Jack Nicholson (The Shining), etc. It was great to see some come back like Chris Tucker whose appearance in Silver Linings Playbook was his first since Rush Hour 3 and his first non-Rush Hour movie role since Money Talks.
But Sean Connery ended his acting career with the disappointing League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (?). And where is Warren Beatty lately from the 1990 film Dick Tracy?
This isn’t to say that, perhaps, these actors haven’t been in anything in the last decade or two, but they surely haven’t been in anything really of note and some of them are missed. Though no one seems to be protesting over Ashton Kutcher’s limited roles…more so over the fact that he still gets roles.
Perhaps, I should also ask which actors would you love to see retire? I’m sure there are some that come to mind. I may do a poll about that in the near future! 🙂
Thanks for voting today! Can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 3-5-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
I am considering a subscription to a movie magazine and am curious as to your opinions on which one to get. I have an idea of what I’d like to choose for great exclusive interviews, photos, articles, etc all about movies (not so much other entertainment subjects like television shows) but thought I’d throw it out there and ask you all. Do you have a preference for a particular movie magazine? Do you read them? Is it worth it since so many of the magazines float their stuff out online days or weeks after publication?
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
