“The Town” Poll Results

15 09 2010

Maybe you all are on to something and my skepticism was misplaced.

“The Town” will almost assuredly be certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes as it currently sits at an 84% with this general consensus: “Tense, smartly written, and wonderfully cast, The Town proves that Ben Affleck has rediscovered his muse — and that he’s a director to be reckoned with.”

Sounds like something I’d want to see.  But the question I asked was if we were looking at a contender – or just another early fall release that could never gain any traction.

You all seemed to think the former, which may actually be the case.  8 out of 13 people polled said that “The Town” will be a contender.

5 of you sided with the skepticism I showed in my Oscar Moment on the movie about a month ago.  Hopefully my readers are smarter than I am, but I’ll hopefully find out this weekend at the movie theater.

…well, actually, I’ll find out if it’s a good movie this weekend.  Awards are political and have little to do with the art.

It could very well garner a nod for Cooper or Renner for Supporting Actor.
