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: “The Hobbit in the Spotlights!“ has officially closed and the results are in with 30 total votes. Asking which 2 characters from Peter Jackson’s presentation of J.R.R. Tolkein’s classic works are your favorite? The competition was fierce and Sauron, without his ring, proved he had little power to control the voters as he ended with 0 votes! haha. Simply put…he didn’t pass!
Gandalf, of course, won the poll as your favorite character in the series, and you may or may not be surprised at how many votes the other options all received. Be sure to check out the rest of the results in last week’s poll HERE! Thanks to all that voted and made last week’s poll fun!
This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “Solo Survivor Man” brings up a debate over movies that feature one character for the majority of the film. A one man show if you will. While technically the ones chosen to vote from are not complete solo films (like Secret Honor or The Noah), the ones chosen spend the majority of the film with a focus on just one character in semi/complete solitude facing some sort of peril or danger from without or within.
I’m sure that any of today’s contestants would’ve preferred to be alone as opposed to having Donkey as their companion! 🙂
In today’s poll, I’d like for you to consider a few things prior to voting. Consider the performance of the actor (especially given almost nothing or no one to actually interact with during filming), the peril faced, the way the film made you fear/feel and the movie’s rewatchability factor. Some pretty solid contenders in this category (sorry, there is no Wall-E in this poll for reason of the requested considerations and, out of the other options, Wall-E was the least “alone.”)
Thanks for joining me today! Which one man show did you choose? and why? Let me know in the comment section below! Can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 6-25-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
