Posts Tagged ‘Wednesday’s Weekend Poll’

The summer seems to be over just as soon as it begins!  It’s hard to believe that we’re already in July (Happy 4th BTW), which means we’re basically half-way through our summer movie blockbusters.  It’s strange to think about all the hype that surrounds most of these films, and now many of them have been viewed and will quickly be forgotten.  Even though many may be forgotten, this summer hasn’t been all that bad – nothing can compare to the summer films released in 2001…just terrible!  Even though many of us still await the release of The Dark Knight Rises and The Bourne Legacy, which movie has been the best thus far?  Let us hear from you.

This Friday we will be blogging on the film, The Five-Year Engagement.  It chronicles a couple’s engagement that gets postponed as life gets in the way.  We will highlight some thoughts that surround this film, but wanted to hear your thoughts on the matter.  Are long engagements bad?  What are some concerns that can arise from long engagements?  Are long engagements something Christians should avoid or pursue?  Take a second and let us hear from you below.

Coming Soon

We are excited to add another guest blogger to our list at Reel Thinking – Brad Davis.  He has come up with a very interesting post on a well-known sports film.  Be sure to come back tomorrow to see who Brad is and which of the below films he’s blogging on.  Until then, let us hear from you, what’s your favorite sports film?  If yours isn’t on the list below, add it in the comments section.

We’ve had a few weekends like the one we’re preparing for.  That is, those weekends that seem to be fairly weak at the box office.  Although some of the weekend releases seem to be somewhat intriguing, our guess is that none of these films will be timeless.  Therefore, we are jumping ahead a few weeks to the movie, This Means War.  Even though TMW might not be a timeless film, there are some interesting themes to hit on.  Plus, this movie does look pretty entertaining.  The story is fun, action looks fun, & the cast is well put-together.  However, what do you think?  Do you think This Means War looks entertaining?

Tomorrow we are beginning our two-part post on The Grey (we know the film doesn’t release until next Friday).  The film follows a group of oil drillers whose plane crash-lands in the snowy wilderness of Alaska.  These men must choose to live or die on this day by fighting the elements.  The theme of this film is survival, life verses death, which led us to the below question.

As you might have read, we are compiling a list of some of our favorite Christmas Flicks this Thursday and Friday.  We hope that you stop back by in the next couple of days and check that out.  We also hope that you share some of your favorite Christmas films with the rest of the Reel Thinking community.

Instead of reading our top films and then compiling your list, we thought it would be good to go ahead and hear from you.  Please comment below and let us know what some of your favorite Christmas films are.  Our lists are already compiled (I selected 10), so your comments are not going to alter our posts in any way.  So go ahead and share some of those films you love to watch around the Christmas season.

We are glad to have Janie Cheaney, from Redeemed Reader, guest post for us on Friday.  She will be discussing the books that contribute to Martin Scorsese’s theatrical release of Hugo.  In light of that, we wanted to know if you’ve ever seen a movie that was better than the book?

***For those of you who checked out last week’s WWP, we did have a winner.  Scott Byrd, of Chicago, Illinois, won the $10 movie pass.  We will be awarding prizes periodically through our WWP, so be sure and check back***

**Three simple rules for the prize: 1) only one entry qualifies you for the drawing  (yep, we’re watching!), 2) entries submitted after midnight on 11/16/11 do not qualify, and 3) the winner will be notified via email as soon as possible.
