A poll. About the steaming pile of films April will be serving up.

The last poll question involved how many words you are willing to read of review of a film you are interested in more than average. I was actually surprised at the answers. It seems you all have different standards when it comes to the appropriate length of a review.

The most popular answer was 500 words, but that was only 24% of the vote. However, 750, 1000, and 2000 words each received 18%. There were a couple for 1500, and one percent voted for 300.

Additionally, Paolo said as long as the writing is good, it can’t be too long for him!

I honestly expected there to be a majority winner, I believe my own vote fell under 1000 words (but it was more than two weeks ago, how am I to remember that?).  But it seems everyone is willing to read different lengths.

I’m a bit depressed about the the month of April and it’s prospective releases (I guess I’ll have Jane Eyre which comes to my area April 1st).  I’m not sure this list is comprehensive, but if it is, suck.  What April movie are you most interested in?

    Voted for SCREAM, although I’m also quite looking forward to RIO and HANNA. More than any of those however, I’m looking forward to some indie films from last year that are finally making their way to Australia; specifically, I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS, INCENDIES and NEVER LET ME GO

  2. For me, it’s “Your Highness” largely because I’m a big fan of David Gordon Green and his work. It looks funny though I do hope Green returns to more dramatic work soon.

    My second choice would be “Hanna” because it looks like a great thriller and I like Joe Wright despite my lukewarm feelings towards “The Soloist”.

  3. Umm…can I get a “none of the above”?

  4. Fletch says:

    Yeah, I’m not exactly impressed with that list, either. Hanna by a landslide.

    @ Tom – I haven’t seen any of the Scream films. The release of number four is kind of making me want to catch up some I’ll get this latest release. Haven’t seen Incendies, but I Love You Phillip Morris and Never Let Me Go are pretty great!

    @ Steven – I hadn’t even heard of Your Highness until last week, but you’re right, it does look like it could be pretty funny.

    @ Jessica – No. You must choose one of the provided options.

    @ Hanna – I’d have to go with you on that one, Fletch.

    TRUST without a doubt. Some good friend worked on it. The script sounded amazing. Great cast. Compelling story.

  7. Soul Surfer for wide releases, although Water for Elephants is close second and I’d say Rubber too, although I’m not sure if it’s releasing anywhere but Toronto.
