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: “Riddle Me This, Riddle Me That: Who should be the next big Man of the Bat?“ has officially closed and the results are in with 39 and 29 total votes per poll respectively. Asking which plausible candidates to play the next Batman in the upcoming Superman/Batman mashup film would you like to possible be considered for the role. The top 2 Bat Boys have been chosen and it was a lot of fun reading all the comments and watching the close results! Congrats to Matt Bomer and Richard Armitage who both barely won the polls and edged out the competition. I know that my friend Ruth at Flixchatter.net will be extremely pleased to see the results, especially given the post she published today about the subject.
Be sure to check out how many votes each of the 12 candidates received in last week’s poll HERE!
This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “Blu-Ray Benefits” entertains the idea behind buying and collecting movies on blu-ray.
There’s two reasons for this poll this week:
(1) Many of you know that I work in retail and one of the portions of the store that I am responsible over is the movie section. (YES!!) Often I see people roam the aisles in search for they-don’t-even-know-yet and find several people still picking up dvd copies instead of blu-ray copies of movies that just seemed to have been created for blu-ray. You know what I mean. The ones that just look and sound amazing with the high definition video and audio (i.e. The Matrix, Ben-Hur, The Dark Knight, etc.). To the which I often recommend the blu-ray version and a regular response is: “I don’t have a blu-ray player.” or “DVD is just fine, blu-ray is just a scam to get our money and then convert everything again to ‘Purple-Ray’.” (Not kidding, that’s what I’ve been told several times.)
(2) Ian over at ianthecool has a series going on over at his site about Converting to blu-ray and collecting blu-ray movies. While he is sadly mistaken on his opinion of “inefficiency” of organizing one’s collection in alphabetical order in his 2nd post of the series HERE (high-five to all of you who organize your movies this way), he brings up some excellent reasons to convert over to blu-ray in his first post HERE.
So, today I am curious about your opinion. You visit this site because of your shared enjoyment of movies and movie related subjects. Therefore, I assume, that you must have an opinion on the subject one way or the other. Do you buy movies? Do you buy BLU-RAY movies? If so, WHY do you buy them?
Thanks for joining me today! Let me know in the comment section below the answers to the questions and your preference for blu-ray movies! Can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 8-6-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
