    HP?! Drive was way better… Well, I guess Vox populi, vox dei doesn’t work for everybody. 😉

      Haha. I actually think I’d side with the populi on this one given my love for all things HP, but you are definitely not alone.

    I was one of the Drive voters!

    Haha, those are some interesting write-in votes. Someone REALLY loves Real Steel…

      Apparently! Looks like I gotta get on the bandwagon and check that sucker out one of these days.

        I swear, it wasn’t me! But I really, really like “Real Steel.”

        Hahaha. Guess I gotta check that out, too.

    I was the only vote for Take Shelter? Sad.

    Seriously though? Harry Potter? Granted, I think we all enjoyed seeing Neville grow up to be Clive Owen, but I left the theatre wanting more than I received.

    Well, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” had to win for something. =P

    I should’ve voted for “Cold Fish.” More people should go see it.

    • April 6, 2012 9:54 am

      Haha. Should have won for more. Never even heard of Cold Fish, will check it out!
