What was everyone else's excuse for only voting once?

Note: It is perfectly appropriate to only vote once if that one vote is cast for my movie. For example, Maxflier did it right!
Woody didn't seem to have the same fear.

So are three films advancing, or just one?

Can I change my vote? Hey, wait a minute...

According to the selection thread it will be the top 6 (percentage wise) over the three "weekends." That is why I am concerned that people are only voting for one movie. Our percentages are much lower than if people pick their top 3.

Ok, done. I hope that is what you were looking for.

Wish we could get some more voters.

That's perfect. Thanks.

If JasonF's contest can't get votes, I don't know what can.

Well.. no one is promoting their film either (other than you).. so, I wouldn't expect much.

I would talk more about the girl on girl action in my film, but this is a family friendly site. Lets just say that JasonF's full frontal Nudity has nothing on Monica Belluci and Penelope Cruz's scenes.

Did I mention that my full frontal nudity involves Scarlett Johanson and Kate Beckinsale together ... if you know what I mean. It is a family site, like orangecrush said, but let's just say that I had to fight hard to avoid an NC-17 rating.

Just to clarify things, my film features a YOUNG Bridget Fonda (early 20's). Here's a screencap (probably the only frame with her in that I can show on this forum):

Seems like everybody is trying to sell their movie based on sex

(This is coming from the guy who has Lindsey Lohan as the Dean's Granddaughter in his movie (coming out July 4th))

Don't cry me, I'm already dead.

Hmm... Barney's movie had heart but "Football in the Groin" had a football in the groin.


YOUNG Bridget Fonda does sound enticing though...

There's something bad about present Bridget Fonda?

Also, I'm not selling my movie on sex, just pointing out that it doesn't lack in that area.

Is that what they are calling tobacco use these days?

To be honest, I don't envision my movie as soft core porn at all (though I did get chris_sc77's vote, as I predicted in the selection thread). I was trying for a movie I would actually like to see. In fact, I think my movie's premise is more likely to actually be made than the other 3 movies in this thread. I think that the story, if properly adapted, of Grand Theft Auto IV would make a really good movie, especially with all of my principles. It is also in Black and White, so that adds some class.

So, how long is voting going to last? I would like to see it end the moment I get more votes than JasonF.

WHy is Groucho's The Little Tramp & Evil Dead Movie winning. That sounds like the worst movie of all time!

I didn't even know this thread existed until now. You really should have announced it in the previous thread. For someone like me that primarily sticks to his subscribed threads, it can be a while before I happen to see a new one.

Besides college football and Labor Day were last weekend. Add Beatles Rock Band and I just got off of a 6-day weekend. Now that I'm back to "work" I have more time to find new threads. Will you do me a favor and announce the next thread in the current thread so at least it shows up in my subscriptions? kthxbye!

Voting in a sec. Gotta say, I like all the talent you guys have recruited but your franchises leave a lot to be desired. I hate James Bond and, by association, Jason Bourne. I've never seen any Godfather movies because I just don't care about the mafia and I've only like the first 2 GTA games.

Looks like my weekend will only be 2 movies long. Or, rather, it would have been if that Evil Dead movie was rated PG-13 and 2 minutes shorter. I just don't have the time for a 2+ hour movie.

Ahhhhh, did I mention that my movie has Monica Bellucci on Penelope Cruz action?
