Poll #15 Results

It's that time again! In more ways than one, as yes, it's poll result time; but exactly one year ago we conducted a similar poll for the movies of last year, which you can check out here.

What big summer films are you most excited to see?

Star Trek (57%)
Up (42%)
Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen (42%)
Terminator Salvation (26%)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (26%)
Angels & Demons (10%)
Other (10%)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (5%)
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra (0%)

Last year, the winner was unsurprisingly, The Dark Knight, with WALL-E right up behind it, and Indiana Jones and Iron Man just behind them. Obviously TDK and WALL-E went on to be huge critical successes (Oscars even), with Iron Man surprising people everywhere, and Dr. Jones handing out some mixed reactions. But what does this poll say about this summer's films?

First off, in similar status to Iron Man, Star Trek surprised everyone by being enjoyable despite whatever past connections (or not connections at all) people had with the franchise, and you can check out my review here. Pixar once again takes second place with Up, and I've yet to see that, but hope to sometime this week. And.. yeah, the rest is up to you to analyze, poor G.I. Joe got no love though.

Next poll coming eventually.
