This poll ran a little longer than usual, and we ended up having one of our best turnouts yet. The people have spoken, and the best film produced by Judd Apatow is:
- Superbad: 11 votes
- Anchorman: 9 votes
- Bridesmaids: 7 votes
- Knocked Up: 7 votes
- The 40-Year-Old Virgin: 6 votes
- Step Brothers: 6 votes
- The Cable Guy: 5 votes
- Talladega Nights: 5 votes
- Pineapple Express: 3 votes
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall: 2 votes
- Get Him to the Greek: 2 votes
- Funny People: 1 vote
- Walk Hard: 1 vote
- Fun with Dick and Jane: 0 votes
- Kicking & Screaming: 0 votes
Superbad wins once again (it also won for best teen comedy earlier this year)! Anyone else surprised to see The Cable Guy sneak in there with five votes? I haven’t seen that in years, but I always thought it was underrated. Apparently I’m not the only one.
This Week’s Poll: As the new year approaches, we are about to enter the “dead zone” of movies. Usually there are slim pickings when it comes to quality titles during this time, but there look to be some decent options next year. Are there any early films you are excited about? How about the unfortunately-delayed Gangster Squad? Maybe the new Die Hard? Let’s hear what you have to say!
Happy Friday everyone!
I am closing last week’s poll a little early since I will be out of town for the next few days. I have a bright and early flight this morning to Portland, Oregon, a town I have been wanting to visit for years. I am especially looking forward to visiting some of their craft breweries (a few of which are within walking distance of my hotel), and doing some hiking in the beautiful mountains just outside of the city. It’s going to be great to get away, and hey, if you have any suggestions as to what I should see/do while I am there, don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I will try to keep tabs on any updates while I’m away.
Anyway, onto the winner of last week’s Best Teen Comedy poll:
- Superbad: 10 votes
- Fast Times at Ridgemont High: 6 votes
- American Pie: 2 votes
- Road Trip: 1 vote
- Other: 10 Things I Hate About You: 1 vote
In the battle of old vs. new, the new prevailed. Superbad is a freakin’ riot, but I am a little surprised to see it mop up against some classics. No love for Animal House or Porky’s?
This week’s poll is inspired by a very entertaining roundtable discussion from three great movie bloggers: Ian, Fogs and PG Cooper. Vote for your favorite David Fincher film, then stop by and see what those guys had to say!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you next week.
