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 “Amazing Archers of the 21st Century“ has now closed with 69 votes poll. Many of you came and showed your support of your favorite archers and it would appear that many of you love good ol’ “Greenleaf Goldilocks.” I thought it’d be a closer fight, but Legolas proved to be the victor quite decidedly. The results are in. Be sure to click the link below to see the actual results. Any guess as to which archer received ZERO votes?
Check out the actual overall results HERE.
I wish to thank everyone that voted in the poll, shared the post with others, and added to the conversation with your comments. Thank you.
This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “Fists of Fury” asks you to pick from some of my favorite fight scenes in movies.
Now, before you start giving me a hard time over which of the excluded fight scenes definitely deserve to be in this poll, let me explain how this one works:
When we think about some of the greatest fight scenes of all time, certain fights come to mind – Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker, Fight Club, Raging Bull, Neo vs. Agent Smith, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Enter the Dragon, The Raid: Redemption and perhaps even Bloodsport or Karate Kid‘s final fight scene.
This poll is not asking you to pick the greatest fight scene of all-time and thus does not contain such popular options.
No, instead, this poll asks you to take a look at 10 of my personal favorite fights that don’t often get thought of or mentioned in people’s lists of popular punchout sessions (some more than others). You know, some of the ones that are only remembered by people who were actual fans of the films themselves much like:
(For the record…I hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine and don’t remember those guys’ names. I look forward to The Wolverine this year, however. Don’t miss the new trailer for it on this week’s Trailer Time Thursday!)
Okay, now with that understanding made clear (or perhaps not), below you will find 10 fights that I like to watch that don’t so readily come to mind when asked about the Top Fight Scenes of all-time. Of course, this is widely open to interpretation, and that’s what makes it fun! So don’t beat me or yourself up over the choices listed or not listed!
I have included the links for each fight below so that you can watch them prior to choosing if you like. The winners can then be added to the All-Time Top Ten Movie Fight Scenes as honorary #11 and #12! 🙂
Click the battle below to watch:
- Optimus Prime vs. Megatron
- Hobbs vs. Dominic
- Ripley vs. Xenomorph
- Gandalf vs. The Balrog
- Sherlock Holmes vs. Big Man
- Sean Thornton vs. Squire Wil “Red” Danaher
- Babydoll vs. Samurai
- Leonidas vs. The Immortal
- The Hulk vs. Thor
- Aragorn vs. Lurtz
My questions for you:
- Was it tough for you to choose?
- Which did you choose and why?
- What “not-so-uber-popular” fight would be in YOUR honorable mentions?
Leave a comment with your Top TEN fight scenes in movies and prepare to add the top 2 winners from today’s poll to your own list as #11 and #12. 🙂
I can’t wait to see the results next week of this one for sure! Vote before the poll closes on 4-2-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
