Poll Results: Best Will Smith Film

Last week’s poll has brought us our first ever tie!

Independence DayThe Pursuit of Happyness

– Independence Day: 6 votes
– The Pursuit of Happyness: 6 votes
– Ali: 4 votes
– Enemy of the State: 4 votes
– Bad Boys: 2 votes
– Hancock: 2 votes
– I Am Legend: 2 votes
– Men in Black: 2 votes
– Six Degrees of Separation: 1 vote

Very interesting results this time around. It has been ages since I have seen Independence Day, but perhaps I should revisit it now that the summer blockbuster season has began. The Pursuit of Happyness, on the other hand, is one I have yet to see. Apparently that is something I need to fix sooner rather than later. In any case, it’s great to see a diverse group of votes for this poll with no runaway winner.

THIS WEEK’S POLL: To celebrate the release of Moonrise Kingdom, this week’s poll is What is Wes Anderson’s Best Film?

What do you guys think? Are you satisfied with last week’s dual-winners?

    The first Men in Black was so good and original, but I think they should’ve stopped with the first one! And I, Robot isn’t on the list? Switch I, Robot with Hancock!

    • Eric says:

      Yeah, I was surprised that I, Robot didn’t get any votes. And I’m with you on Men in Black — I don’t think three films were necessary at all.

    Looking through this poll I realized just how great a movie star Will Smith is. He’s managed to make millions of people–myself included–like him a lot without ever starring in a really good movie.

    • Eric says:

      Good point! That would explain the variety of votes this time around. The highest IMDB rating for one of his films is The Pursuit of Happyness — a 7.8 — whereas the rest mostly hover around the 6/7 mark. I’m kind of surprised that Happyness has such a high rating, actually, as I don’t recall ever hearing *that* great of things about it.

  3. Alex Withrow says:

    Independence Day? Say whaaaat? I love Smith’s performance and Ali, seriously blows me away every time I watch that film. He’s great in Pursuit of Happyness as well. Oh, and Bad Boys. Love Bad Boys.

    • Eric says:

      I think nostalgia may have had something to do with this one. 😀

      I should probably sit down and watch all of Bad Boys sometime. I have only caught bits and pieces of it over the years.

  4. The Blog of Big Ideas says:

    I haven’t seen Ali or the latest MIB. I voted for Independence Day but I was torn until the last second on whether or not to throw my support under The Pursuit of Happiness. So, I’m happy it was a tie at the top.
    I also enjoyed I Am Legend, I Robot, Enemy of the State and the first MIB, the rest are average.

  5. Jaina says:

    Haha! I figured Pursuit would steal this one. Even though I’ve yet to see it. Ali is still, for me, his best role. But can understand the sheer summer blockbuster style enjoyment of Independence Day.

    Voted for Fantastic Mr. Fox. Not a huge Wes Anderson fan, but fell in love with that film.

    • Eric says:

      I was surprised to see Pursuit with such a high IMDB rating. I guess I need to see that one.

      I’m with you on Fantastic Mr. Fox, Jaina. I have yet to fall in love with any other Anderson film, though I am looking forward to finally seeing Rushmore soon.
