Elvis gets the cake this time and is the winner

Since it was a three way tie for second do you think we should recount? [Big Grin]

It pays to remember: this is maybe the third time that The King has been on the ballot and he's finally gotten his day on screen.

Especially if your print came close, please run it again. (Let's not bury our wounded!)

Thank you! Thank you verra much!

Wise Words Steve!

I'm most looking forward to the company in watching the film! It's hard to find a good crowd to watch films the way they were intended!

Very True!

The bonus being you will never hear "Why do you bother with all this? Just get Netflix!"

It just bothers me that there are really spectacular sounding prints that should get their time on the big screen: even if not this time, maybe next time or next year.

Example:

My sister is a Nurse: she's worked in the ER (hunting mishaps, car accidents) and OR (amputations, appendectomies, infections, open thoraxes with hearts beating). I think it's fair to say she's not at all squeamish!

-and yet she came home from seeing JAWS in the theater visibly shaken! A couple of days later there was a beer commercial and these guys yanked a trout into a row boat: she literally screamed!

I've seen it any number of times on the small screen. To me it's a great adventure tale, but it didn't scare me at all.

I'm not pretending to be less prone to having the crap scared out of me than my sister, who was literally called "Blood and Guts" when she was undergrad at Hunter/Bellevue! I'm an Engineer: when something dies on us we just buy a new one!

That's why I want to see this movie Ten feet high some day!

-of course the element of surprise is kind of gone...

"-and there goes Quint!"

Sadly another CineSea I have to miss because of prior obligations to my other hobby this Saturday, which unlike film collecting pays for itself. Roustabout is also my favorite Elvis film, and if Todd is selling his print after this screening, let me know, I would be interested! I hope to make the CineSea in October and see everyone again unless it falls on the weekend of October 19th...

David if you took the time to notice I don't have a horse in the race.It was a joke asking for a recount.So I don't give a care who's second. I was only referring to the fact it's funny that a certain person pointed oyt there was a three way tie for second. Like it really matters being tied for first of the losers. What do you want a recount or booby prize?

That being said I can't wait to watch Elvis and hang out with my friends. also sing along with Elvis and with Tammy while the film is running

Brian, I could've sworn that a three way tie for second would be of particular interest to you. Isn't that why you asked to see the actual vote count in the first place?

Nice to see A Hard Day's Night stayed in the running with Jaws & Raiders as it's one of my favorite films.

Result count or not, I haven’t felt a lack of transparency in the selection of the Friday night choice, now or in the past

I know im in the UK and ive nothing against Elvis - but to pick Roustabout - which is hardly the Kings finest celluloid hour over Raiders and Jaws is something of a mystery to me.

It's interesting; There were so many titles to chose from that the majority of voters were split! The majority did not choose Rostabout, but there were those dedicated voters that made it happen. Had the votes been conducted in a bracketed fashion I feel the outcome would be different. But who has time for that?!?!

I'm not complaining either way. The feature to me is a warm up for the festivities to come the very next day!

One way to look at it is with this many great prints in contention, Friday Night Feature has a long future ahead of it!

I made my vote regretting all the ones I voted against. (Until we take over the same space in the hotel next door, it will stay just one at a time. [Wink] )

-and I think the King will sound just great through those big speakers!

Looking forward to seeing everyone. I still haven’t picked what films I’m bringing to sell! Last time I had everything priced and categorized weeks out. Sigh. I’ll be skipping the Friday night feature, so what’s the skinny on breakfast? I have yet to attend.

I believe Roustabout has been the only consecutive film that has been nominated for four different CineSeas - and, in my opinion, it's about time it won! [Big Grin]

It's nice to change things up by playing a musical instead of another action film - and spring is the perfect time for any big musical!

See y'all real soon - and get ready Thursday night crew. We got some Werewolf (our murder mystery game) to play. [Cool]

What are you talking about Fright night house of wax and psycho star wars,Aliens are not action films. Plus when was the last cinesea an action film was shown? I've been keeping track and most of the time it's sci fi and horror. If I'm wrong please correct me.

According to Google, the definition of an action film is "...a film genre in which the protagonist or protagonists are thrust into a series of challenges that typically include violence, extended fighting, physical feats, and frantic chases."

I believe all of those films you just listen classify as an actio film.

It's a nice change of pace with an Elvis film that is a fun, feel good musical, which is exactly what we need for this Spring's CineSea!

See everyone there! [Wink]

Brian,

I believe you are taking her use of the word action too literal in a respect. My interpretation is that she is using it in a flexible manner to express the type of sequences. While they may not fall into the specific Genre of Action, they contain many more action like sequences than a musical. To think of it strictly in terms of the Genre Action may be too rigid of an interpretation.
