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 Felonious Five“ has officially closed and the results are in with 26 total votes. Asking for your choice of a team of bad guys and gals from movies in order to take over the world. The random mix of evil was split into six teams and the votes are in. (I must say, it’s pretty predictable if ever the Joker is in a poll just which one will always be chosen. haha). I really thought more of you would give Darth Maul and Voldemort a chance, or Mr. Staypuft and Agent Smith. Truly. Last week’s poll was still fun and I thank each of you who participated. By a landslide, here is the winning team:

This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “The Crichton Collection” takes a look at the movies inspired by the works of renowned author and scifi enthusiast Michael Crichton.
Chicago-born native Michael Crichton grew up in New York and went to Harvard, obtained his undergrad degree in biological anthropology and later began publishing works while in medical school at Harvard Medical. Now with over 200 million copies of his books sold worldwide (mostly science fiction action thrillers), Crichton’s work is recognized and represented in movie form as well.
The Jurassic Park series originates from the book of the same titled authored by Crichton. With Jurassic Park IV finally scheduled to release in 2015 under the direction of Colin Treverrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) and with Steven Spielberg as the executive producer, it’s time to get ready for more of the classic adventure that Crichton introduced to us so long ago. Crichton passed away due to complications with lymphoma and throat cancer in November 0f 2008 at the age of 66, but his legacy lives on. Jurassic Park IV is the start of his legendary continuation with the possibility of more…including a few unfinished works of his.
I enjoy Michael Crichton’s works (on paper and film) and today we take a look at them.
Thanks for joining me today! Crichton’s work powered some of the better science fiction films of Hollywood history. I actually enjoy several of his works including his novels Prey and State of Fear. Do you read any of his work? Which is your favorite?
Well, can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 8-20-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!
