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’!
This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “Director Redirects” asks you to take time to step into the “Theatrical Trilogy Time Machine” and consider what certain movie trilogies would’ve been like if they had been directed by a different director!
Think of some of the “best movie trilogies.” I’m sure titles like Iron Man, Rush Hour, X-Men, The Mummy, Blade, Legally Blonde…Oh, wait, I said “BEST” didn’t I? Oops, okay, so you’re probably thinking of Lord of the Rings, Toy Story, The Dark Knight, Star Wars, etc. (Sounds better, yes?)
Well, part of the great success of those trilogies was the director behind the scenes with the vision for the trilogy itself. Fans would, perhaps, argue that no other director could’ve made a particular trilogy any better than it is.
BUT, what if we had the power to change that? What if our “Theatrical Trilogy Time Machine” worked to allow you to switch a director for a particular trilogy and that you could transport a director from any point in their career to the time of the trilogy’s filming? Who would you replace and why?
- Would you have Ridley Scott direct the Jurassic Park trilogy?
- Would you pick Ang Lee to direct The Matrix trilogy?
- What about Sam Raimi and the RoboCop trilogy?
Today, travel back in time and select the best two directors in their reassignments in the poll below! Are you ready? 88mph in the Delorean and here we go!
This is a poll, that, I’m sure, will come up again with different choices but today I’d like you to carefully consider the options below and vote on your Re-directors!
Thanks for joining me today! Can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 5-21-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
