It's Friday Poll Time!

Poll #1534232 Friday! Friday!! Friday!!!

eideteker -- Am I the only person still watching regular-D TV? Because it seems like I'm missing a lot of things off the sides of my tv (like the Simpsons blackboard gag). When will ads be in all widescreen so I can miss parts of them?

You still watch the Simpsons?
1(20.0%)
The first commercials in widescreen will be for stuff like gold-buying and diet pills where all the fine print and disclaimers will be on the sides, right where the rubes who still watch standard-def can't see them.
0(0.0%)
Since nobody watches commercials anymore, soon all shows will be back in 4:3 and commercials will be like banner ads on the sidebars. The standard-definition TV will be king once more.
3(60.0%)
Never. Making commercials that work both in standard and high definition has become a new film genre for which there will be some sort of awards ceremony in the near future.

renob423 -- how come people love star wars, those movies are awful

We were young and foolish and it was the most youth-accessible yet intelligent science fiction available to us at the time.
0(0.0%)
They are every classic movie genre rolled into one: the Western, the buddy film, romance, mythology, and by the end of the original Jedi, a musical!
2(40.0%)
Since it was practically assigned watching for everyone between 45 and 25, it's a guaranteed conversation topic for nerds who need all the help they can get when attempting to socialize.
2(40.0%)
At least they're better than Star Trek. ugh.

renob423 -- what is the best movie series (must be at least a trilogy)

Lord of the Rings.
4(100.0%)

renob423 -- what shift will the 10's make in horror movies will the new nightmare on elm street be good will it be less convoluted than the rest of them?

A friend convinced me to go see The Crazies last night. If the shift you're looking for is "omg there's somebody behind you!" then we've got it, baby.
1(20.0%)
Casting from the vast pool of reality-show detritus so we can cheer as they're sliced to pieces.
0(0.0%)
Making the police characters competent enough to create a tangible feeling of suspense as to whether or not the bad guy will actually get caught.
1(20.0%)
Instilling fear in the minds of teenagers with a new horror movie monster that kills you via txt message.
3(60.0%)

How on earth did all those CASH 4 GOLD scams get so popular? How could there be so many of them?

People spent all the flush years of a strong economy investing in gold that they didn't really want.
3(60.0%)
There was a void in the market of people willing to buy a high-priced commodity and these shrewd businesspeople swooped in.
0(0.0%)
Nobody knows what to do with all the chests full of doubloons they found in their backyards.
0(0.0%)
At once, as if some spell were cast over them, people who had previously been proud to wear giant gold dollar sign-shaped medallions realized how stupid they looked.

Apparently, they increased the number of Best Picture nominees from 5 to 10 this year. Most plausible reason:

To be able to feature both movies nobody but critics saw and movies the public has also seen.
1(20.0%)
To fuck with Vegas.
3(60.0%)
The Oscars are little more than a big commercial - why limit the income potential to only 5?
0(0.0%)
To try to make it seem as though Hollywood is doing such a damn good job making awesome movies that they couldn't pick which five to congratulate themselves on the most.
