Poll Results: Most Anticipated 2012 Film (November & December)

I think it’s safe to say our winner will do well at the box office.

The Hobbit

– The Hobbit: 16 votes
– Django Unchained: 9 votes
– Les Miserables: 6 votes
– Breaking Dawn Part 2: 4 votes
– Hitchcock: 3 votes
– Killing Them Softly: 2 votes
– Life of Pi: 2 votes
– Silver Linings Playbook: 2 votes
– Zero Dark Thirty: 2 votes
– Amour: 1 vote
– Anna Karenina: 1 vote
– Rise of the Guardians: 1 vote

No real surprise here. Despite The Hobbit (unnecessarily) being split into three films, there are still a lot of people excited to see it. Hopefully Peter Jackson can rekindle the same magic found in his Lord of the Rings trilogy.

This Week’s Poll: Since The Hobbit has generated so much excitement, now seems to be a good time to settle a popular debate. Which fantasy series do you prefer: Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter? I know there are diehard fans of both, so this should be a fun poll. Can Tolkien reign supreme once again?

Any thoughts on either poll? Did your selection(s) win?

    It’s an apples and oranges comparison.

    Harry Potter is a great franchise, but it is aimed at a younger audience that aged as the characters aged. LOTR is aimed at adults.

    I can watch any of the three LOTR films, but tend to only gravitate to the later Potter films.

    I’m really looking forward to the Hobbit, going to be fun to return to the LOTR again. I really like the LOTR films and books, The Fellowship of the Ring is my favourite. I’ve never really been a fan of the Harry Potter films, seen a couple of them, but I just like the LOTR films more.

    Glad people are in agreement about The Hobbit!! Can’t wait to see it. I actually got an advanced screening to it but unfortunately I’ll be out of the country until Christmas.

    So I think you could guess which franchise I voted for in your current poll πŸ™‚

    Only seen 1 Harry Potter film. It was midway through the series and I still thought none of the kids could act. Never seen the appeal.

    LOTR on the other hand – loved! Grew up reading the books and the films are just an extension of that.

      Haha well I’m right there with you on Harry Potter. I have seen all of them since my girlfriend is a huge fan, but I never got the appeal either. I’ll take LOTR any day, and it seems everyone is in agreement on that so far.

  5. Nostra says:

    Well, I’m still looking forward to Django Unchained more than the Hobbit, but I can understand the excitement.

    As for LOTR or Potter, just looking at my DVD collection I have to go with the first as I don’t have any Potter movies. I must admit though that although I’ve the extended movies I don’t think I ever watched them.

    • Eric says:

      Django Unchained is my most anticipated film, too.

      I’ll never forget spending an entire day to watching the LOTR trilogy — all extended cuts — back-to-back-to-back. I was burned out by the end, but it’s a good series. πŸ™‚

    • Eric says:

      I never did finish reading all of LOTR. Got about 1/3 into The Two Towers, I believe. The Hobbit, on the other hand, I have read more than once. Happy to finally have a new film adaptation for that one.

    I think I must be the only person in the world that doesn’t like the LOTR films, can’t believe they’re stretching the Hobbit into 3 films as well. I’m not much of a HP fan but I definitely preferred the last 3 or 4 of them to LOTR. Bring On Django Unchained!!

    • Eric says:

      To be honest, I am not much of a fan of either series. The Hobbit was one of my favorite books back in the day, but I don’t like that it’s being stretched into three films… Two was bad enough!
