I don't believe this poll has been out there yet:

How do you watch most of your movies?

1. Theater
2. Walk in video-rental store
3. Mailed to my house (NetFlix et al.)
4. Walk-up rental machine (Redbox. et al.)
5. Purchased DVD's
6. Downloaded on my PC
7. Borrowed from friends
8. Other (please explain)

-Moderator may have to tweak the options, as there may be one or some I'm not aware of...

Thanks for playing!!

How about a new summer movie poll. We had one last year. You know, a list of all the big summer releases and what people are most interested in.

I hope there isn't a Catcher In The Rye film adaption-cause I thought it was a terrible book and I highly doubt a film would be much of an improvement.

Not enough gun battles and ninjas?

I find it touchingly ironic that you hate a book that features a protagonist that is basically a younger version of you, Vexer Caulfield.

Well I did read Catcher In The Rye like 6 years ago, maybe I was too young back then to really "get it" and maybe i'd appreciate it more now, though I really don't have a particularly strong urge to try and read through it again.

Now wait just one second! Clearly we need more ninja movies. Have you seen Zhang Yimou's Curse of the Golden Flower? It's mostly medicore until, all of a sudden, ninjas drop from the fucking ceiling. Totally unexpected. Which is what a good ninja should be. I'm secretly hoping that Black Swan is actually about ninjas. It starts with ballerinas and then, *boom* knifed by a ninja, mutherfucka!

Oh, and lest I be accused of going offtopic...that was another poll suggestion. You know..."Have you seen Zhang Yimou's Curse of the Golden Flower?"

I'm not so sure. I'd be willing to make an argument for Bill & Ted.

Since we did for Lord of the Rings, how about some polls for other films with multiple cuts (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Blade Runner, etc.)?

How about something about end credits Pats?

What are you're feelings about end credits?

-Stay till the end.
-I'm out once they start.
-Depends on the film.
-Other...options... :?:

I don't know...work with it as you wish.
