It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 146

April 16, 2013

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 The Super Millenia has now closed. Asking you which Post-2000 origin superhero movie was the best proved to be a bit difficult for many of you. Over 70 votes came in and the people have spoken. It was a VERY close battle for first place and the 2nd place hero lost by a single vote. The winner for the #1 superhero origin movie (post-2000) is:936full-batman-begins-poster

  • Be sure to check out which superhero films placed 2nd, 3rd, 4th and so on with the link HERE.

I wish to thank everyone that voted in the poll, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments!

This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ presents “Movie Character Fight Club, Rnd 5. 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:

Earlier on Reddit I saw this question in the subreddit option of “r/movies” which received numerous responses and got my attention. Here’s what it asked:actors

(You can click the picture to be taken to the original post for some fun reading if you so wish)

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!).Sharing Is Caring

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. 😀

Today is the day for ROUND 5!

Today I ask you: Which “characters” win in this FIFTH 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.<<<<

*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.

Pretty soon there will be a round pitting the winners against one another. Keep a lookout! Have fun!

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

    For John Malkovich, can I throw in him playing himself in Being John Malkovich?

    Jessica Alba – Dark Angel – she kicked major arse. To this day, still think that TV role has been her best ever.

      a good choice actually Jaina that I wanted to toss in, but I decided to stick still with the movie roles. I agree with you.

    Hi, Terrence and company:

    Many self cancelling choices here.

    I’ll remind you that Sean Bean played Bond’s nemesis, Trevelyan in ‘GoldenEye’. Also Infantry officer, Richard Sharpe in the ‘Sharpe’ series from BBC.

    What? No Timothy Olyphant? from ‘Live Free or Die Hard’, ‘Hitman’, HBO’s ‘Deadwood’ or FX’s ‘Justified’?

    Also, I’ve a guest post at Ruth’s you may be interested in.

      Olyphant is an excellent choice. He may just show up in the future! Thanks for voting.

      and, yes, Sean Bean was Trevelyan. That was an initial choice, but I opted to make it 2 similar characters with swords! 🙂

      Thanks for the plug of your post. I’ll be there soon! Don’t want to miss it.
