Montclarions Speak: Favorite Movie Picks

During the holiday lull, we created a survey to capture the Montclarion zeitgeist.  Let’s reveal your contributions and opinions, starting with favorite movie picks…a real mash-up.

Montclair’s Favorite Movie Picks

We weren’t that surprised with your crowd-pleasing titles, a veritable cornucopia of Baby Boomer and Gen X delights.  You didn’t replay all the Oscar winners.  You didn’t go for all the box office blockbusters, either.  And you avoided the superheroes and most animated flicks.

What surprised us?  There’s a dearth of edgier or provocative movies, with no Kill Bill or Apocalypse Now in the bunch.  There’s fewer political or war picks too, like Schindler’s List or Coming Home.  Maybe everyone’s influenced (a little) by what’s shown on cable or satellite channels.

Since our entertainment zeitgeist survey’s still open, you may share favorite singers, actors, books and more.  Oddly enough, we see that your actor picks aren’t really aligned with your movies!  Anyway, please contribute your two cents here.

*Fine Print: Good Will Hunting wasn’t released this past decade, but we received multiple picks here.

Montclarions’ Entertainment Picks, Survey Here

Let’s have a little fun here, and capture the cultural zeitgeist in Montclair.

Help us discover your favorite singers, actors, flicks, reads, sites and more.  Who or what tops your list this year, this past decade or all time?  Please take this survey.

After you answer these questions, we promise to share results quickly.  You only need to divulge your top entertainment picks, not too tough.  Also we threw in questions about top local eats as well as the years gone by.

Here’s some unsolicited advice to survey-takers.  First remember to respond quickly, because that’s easiest and gets to your heart first.  And also answer honestly:  we think you aren’t telling the truth by listing Foreign Policy as your favorite mag.  Cheers!
