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 “Classy Fassy“ has now closed with 25 votes. When asked what different type of role you would have preferred to see Michael Fassbender in, the results were tied for first place! We celebrated Michael Fassbender’s birthday last Tuesday by entertaining the question of what different role in the same movie of his would you like to have seen. The results were interesting and are available for you to see in the link below.
The results are in. Be sure to click the link below to see what role Fassbender should have had 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 “The Super Millenia” takes a moment to look at the evolution of superhero movies.
The genre that has exploded over the past 12 or so years used to be not much more than an almost cult-classic following genre that fanboys and girls could only dream of seeing realistic and bombastic materializations of. Anyone remember this little gem?
Oh man! What a change has taken place since then! (I’m not saying the new Fantastic Four movies were that much better, but…whew!)
Some films prior to 2000 seemed to try, but just ended up being nonsensical instead, like Batnips & Robin. Check out this behind the scenes feature video in which the cast and crew of Batman & Robin discuss why the film was so bad. Interesting and insightful.
Well, things got better and with the “perfecting” of CGI and use of green-screen, superhero movies finally have been able to give fans a realistic taste of the “What ifs” with many favorite superheroes. Some have been more welcome than others, but mostly it can be agreed upon that they are so much better and enjoyable.
Today’s poll is not simply about which superhero movie is the “best” or your “favorite.” It asks you to consider which superhero movie AFTER the year 2000 is your favorite or the best. But, there’s another catch:
The only ones allowed for consideration are those that are essentially an origin story for the main character or the first time we see them onscreen. So, you will find no inclusion of sequels or continuations such as The Avengers, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2 or Superman Returns.) Other films are not included simply because (1) there wasn’t room for so many, or (2) because they should be on the “worst of” poll instead of this one. (Sorry, Green Lantern fans.) There is, of course, a “OTHER” option for you to support your choice.
(Here are some other qualifying [or semi-qualifying] options for your “OTHER” choice: Daredevil, Hulk, The Punisher, Catwoman, Constantine, Elektra, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, The Incredible Hulk, Hancock, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Spirit, Jonah Hex, The Green Hornet, Dredd, etc)
I’d ask you to consider the following categories prior to choosing your top THREE (3):
- Special effects
- Storyline & Characters
- Best Villain
- Adaptation from the comics
- Hype payout (i.e. Expectations vs. Reality)
- Costume Design
- Overall fun
I can’t wait to see the results next week of this one for sure! Vote before the poll closes on 4-16-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
