Your Choice 3: Happy or Sad

12 10 2011

Happy or Sad

Some of you may remember that last year I let you choose which 1 of 4 films (that I did not want to see) I would review. The film chosen was High School Musical. Then I did another one where I let you choose 1 of 7 Monster Movies and then I would review that aswell. Both The Host and Cloverfield were chosen and so I reviewed them in June aswell as 3 other monster movies including the Best Film in the world. Well it has been about a year since I first did it and so I thought I would let you do the same again but with a difference.

This time it is Happy or Sad. I have chosen 4 films and it is up to you to decide which one I do (I will probably do the review in February again or maybe even January). Now you may be wondering what I mean by Happy or Sad. Well I have chosen 2 films that I have seen and really enjoy as well as 2 films that I have seen and don’t want to see (So you can vote to make me either Happy or Sad). Here is the choice of films you can choose from, we will start with the Sad ones first.

Sad Films

Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British Film which Won several Awards and appeared in the first Your Choice Poll last year. However it came 3rd in last years poll losing to both The Shawshank Redemption and High School Musical. I don’t want to watch it because I think it looks both Boring and Rubbish.

Forest Gump is a 1994 Film starring Tom Hanks. Forest Gump appeared alongside Slumdog Millionaire in last year’s poll and came in 4th place. I have seen some clips of this film and it did look rather confusing and it also looked Boring.

Happy Films

X-MEN 2 is a 2003 superhero film involving the characters of the X-Men comic and it is the sequel to the 2000 Film X-Men. Not only is it the best film in the X-Men Film Series but I think it is also the Best Marvel Film. If you have recently seen X-Men First Class and not any films of the original trilogy it is time that you do see them because you will understand First Class a whole lot more if you know something about the characters. X-Men 2 is a good starting point and you don’t need to watch the first film to get an understanding of what is going on.

District 9 is a 2009 Sci-fi Action film about an alien ship in the sky above Johannesburg and aliens are living in the city in an area called District 9. The film was directed by Neill Blomkamp and Produced by Peter Jackson. The film was based on a short film that Blomkamp made called Alive in Joburg. District 9 was nominated for several awards including the Oscar for Best Picture and won several awards including an Oscar for best Adapted Screenplay. District 9 was one of my top 3 favourite films of 2009 along with Sherlock Holmes and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Well there are the films you can vote for so now it is up to you which ones get voted for. You can vote only once so make sure you make the right decision. Also I have randomized the order they appear in so you will need to make sure you have ticked the right one as well. When you have chosen simply click the Vote button. You have until Midnight December 31st 2011 (New Year’s Eve) to vote and the film will be reviewed in February (or maybe even January). The Choice is Yours.
