Poll Results are in: This Summer’s Most Anticipated Sequel, or Spinoff is…

maxresdefault1Nope, it’s not Minions. I just personally really love these little banana nubs so I stuck this still from the trailer up there. Last month we asked you to vote for your most anticipated summer sequel or spinoff, and contrary to the ridiculous amount of money Avengers: Age of Ultron made on its opening weekend it seems that most of you out there could really care less, which is why the majority of the votes landed in the “I could care less about any of these” column, causing Iron Man and gang to have to settle for second place.

Frankly, I was a little surprised that the majority of people voted this way. Usually, even the most outspoken anti-blockbuster fan will be able to find at least one mainstream movie to get excited for. I would expect this type of consensus to come from a poll in where you were asked to predict what this year’s top 9 grossing movie would be (something the people over at this site actually did), but all you had to do was just find 1 movie out of 10 to be excited for. You just had to pick 1! And what did you do? You chose the “other” choice. Geesh.

Oh well, follow the jump to see how Jurassic World, Magic Mike XXL, Ted 2, Antman, Pitch Perfect 2, and all the other sequels and spinoffs faired. Read More…

March’s Poll Results: The Best Alejandro González Iñárritu Movie is…

amoresperros14-2png_650Even though Iñárritu’s latest film, Birdman, earned him Oscar statues for Best Director, Best Movie, and Best Screenplay, according to our readers it’s still not his best movie. That distinguished honor goes to his debut feature from 2000, Amores Perros. Sadly, absolutely nobody voted for 21 Grams, Babel couldn’t even reach the double digit percentile, earning only 5.26% of the votes, and Biutiful landed in the middle of the pack. Check out the full results after the jump, and let us know if you agree or not on how it all turned out. Read More…

alejandro-gonzalez-inarritu-image-4Well, it’s been some time since we at Filmbalaya have conducted a poll, so I figured returning to the polls with something Oscar related is as good of a way as any to bring this monthly feature back to the masses. Having just scooped up a Best Director Oscar, I’d like to find out what you think is the best Alejandro González Iñárritu movie to date. You can vote for your favorite film either after the jump, or on the sidebar.

November Poll Results: Best Horror Director

John CarpenterThe people have spoken, and in doing so have elected John Carpenter as the true master of horror. I can’t say I’m all that surprised, nor am I disappointed with the results. Coming in a close second and third were Wes Craven and Dario Argento. Unfortunately neither of Argento’s Italian brethren Mario Bava, or Lucio Fulci received any love, nor did OG monster movie maven, Terence Fisher. Do you agree with these results? Check out the complete poll results after the jump. Read More…

Monthly Poll: Who is the Best Horror Director?

Vote now, or this zombie will shoot you.

Vote now, or this zombie will shoot you.

It’s a pretty straight forward question. However, trying to come up with a relatively short list of horror masters was not that easy. So, in the name of fairness, and so we wouldn’t have a poll of over 30 names, there had to be some ground rules. We thought of two. Here they are: 1 – The director has to have a minimum of 7 horror films under their belt. Unfortunately, this ruled out talents such as Stanley Kubrick (The Shining), Roman Polanski (Rosemary’s Baby), Sam Raimi (Evil Dead), and numerous others. Sorry guys. 2 – They have to have more horror films than they do films from other genres. Sadly, this ruled out David Cronenberg (The Fly). Again, sorry about that. These ground rules might seem unfair, but their put in place for a good reason; to find the best horror director who has dedicated the majority of his career to the horror genre.

This Month’s Poll: What is Your Favorite Movie Starring Little People?

Annex - Curtis, Billy (Terror of Tiny Town, The)_01WTF!?  First, no short people are cast in Snow White and The Huntsman, and now not a single one will be starring in Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit.  This is an outrage!  Well, I for one am pissed, which is why were dedicating this month’s poll to all the wonderful movies that starred people of a shorter stature.  Vote for your favorite after the jump, or on the sidebar.

November Poll Results: Best Daniel Day-Lewis Movie

1-There-Will-Be-BloodThe results of last month’s poll are in, and I have to say, I am shocked.  Just kidding.  Actually, it’s not surprising in the least that the majority of people would choose There Will Be Blood as their favorite Daniel Day-Lewis movie.  Not to take anything away from any of his other great performances, but with the exception of Nine (which, surprisingly didn’t end up with the least amount of votes), the man has been smashing acting homers left and right.  Aside from Lincoln, which was not featured in the poll because the movie wasn’t out when the poll was created, There Will Be Blood is DDL’s most recent acclaimed performance.  Could that be the reason he won the poll, or could it just be that he is that damn good at playing a driven oil tycoon with a penchant for milkshakes?

This Month’s Poll: What Is Your Favorite Daniel Day-Lewis Movie?

Believe it or not, behind that luscious mane of hairy scraggle resides one of the finest actors of our time, Daniel Day-Lewis.  With the release of Stephen Spielberg‘s latest film, Lincoln (where Mr. Day-Lewis will be portraying the eponymous President) scheduled to open later this month I thought now would be the perfect time to reflect on some of the great films this method acting marvel has been in.

Well, which Daniel Day-Lewis movie is your favorite?  Cast your vote by either clicking the jump, or cast your vote on the side bar. Read More…

September Poll Results: Best Paul Thomas Anderson Film

The clear winner of last month’s poll, wherein we asked which Paul Thomas Anderson film is your favorite, was his 1997 dramedy, and this author’s personal favorite, Boogie Nights.  Having not released his newest film, The Master, until later in the month we chose not to include it in the poll.  One can only speculate how the results would have turned out had we included it.

No matter, minus that film in the running I’d say the results turned out much as I predicted they would, with the only mild surprise being There Will Be Blood not taking the top prize.  Hard Eight coming in last was certainly no surprise, being that it’s probably PTA’s least popular film.  Follow the jump to see the results Read More…
