The Tarantino Royale With Cheese Poll Results & Some Star Wars

Well kids, it's that time again. The end of another fun poll here at All Things Kevyn, and we have the results right here. And we even have the announcement of the start of a brand new poll later in the post. But for right now, why don't we get on with those results we spoke of back in our opening sentence. You were asked to name your favourite Quentin Tarantino directed feature film. You had just eight choices (yes, Kill Bill counts as two films!) and you made 'em...with rather predictable results. Yeah, yeah, that's right. Pulp Fiction took home top honours by garnering the most votes in our little ole poll...and that should really come as no surprise. Not that Pulp Fiction doesn't deserve such an honour. It is usually depicted as Tarantino's best film. Hell, it's my favourite Tarantino film, so why should I deride it for winning the damn poll. It truly does deserve it. I was just hoping for an upset. Ya know. But alas, twas not to be. So, to make this all official and stuff, here are those aforementioned poll results.

As we more than plainly stated above, Pulp Fiction won this round, garnering 25 votes, out of 97 cast. This was followed by the just as expectant second place finish of Inglourious Basterds, with 22 votes of its own. Then came the two Kill Bills. Some claim that these should actually have counted as one singular film, but no sirree...two separate films they be. Of course, the voting pretty much even the two out, with Volume 2 grabbing up 13 votes, and Volume 1 destined for just 12 votes. The we got QT's debut feature, Reservoir Dogs, coming in at fifth place, with 10 votes. Then in sixth place comes Jackie Brown, with 8 votes, and in seventh, Django Unchained with 7 votes. And then there's poor Death Proof. The poor thing did not receive even one single vote. Really!?? It deserved better than that! Actually, this list looks a hell of a lot like my own Tarantino list. The top six are in the exact same order as my own list, with Death Proof and Django switching places. So, other than my feeling sorry for poor Death Proof, the list works out after all...even if we didn't get the upsets I was hoping for. So there ya go, kids.

And now for that aforementioned brand new poll that's all the rage. This time around, we are going the Star Wars route. And, of course, when I talk Star Wars, I mean the original trilogy, not those misguided prequel abominations that came around later. Seriously, what the hell were those things all about!? Anyhoo, in the poll this month, you will be asked to name your favourite Star Wars character. And again, no prequel nonsense here. Just the original gang. So, who is your fave? Is it Luke or Leia or Han or Chewie or Lando or whomever? I have gathered up eighteen Star Wars icons from which to choose. Sorry to all those Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru fans out there, but this Tatooine couple did not make the cut. But come on, out of all the characters to choose from, is anyone really going to say that Owen and Beru Lars are their favourites? No, they are not. Hey, I did throw little Wicket in here, if you were so inclined. But I digress. So, as I was saying before that somewhat scary Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru tirade, you will be asked in this poll, to name your fave Star Wars character.  And this is just what you should do. So go ahead and name 'em!

Now all you have to do is head on over to the poll and get your vote on. This poll will run for five weeks, ending at midnight EST the night of Wednesday, September 17th, with the results (and the announcement of a brand new poll) being posted on September 18th. You also have until then to let everyone you come in contact with know about our little poll here at All Things Kevyn. So please share share share. As for how to vote, let me tell ya. Sure, you can give your choice in the comments section below (and I do encourage comments, so comment up galore - I'll love ya forever for it) but for your vote to actually count (no hanging chads here!) you must go over to the poll itself, which can be found oh so conveniently near the top of the sidebar (really, ya can't miss it) and do what you must. It's easy peezy, lemon squeezy. You can also check out the running results over there as well. Then after you vote, feel free to hop back over here and comment away. Remember, I'll love ya forever for it. So, with all that said, get on over there and get your vote on, and tell everyone you know to do the same! And let's try getting those vote totals up from the measly 97 votes tallied with our QT poll. I just know we can get that total up past 200, or even maybe 300. Imagine that! That's it gang. See ya 'round the web. And enjoy the Star Wars/Tarantino mashups I found for ya'll.

  1. Although I love the big hair Chewie, I have to go with Han Solo. My teenage eyes took a look and my heart went pitter-patter especially that he was a bit of a bad guy. Not all goodie 2-shoes like Luke

  2. I agree about Han Solo. I've got a thing for smart-assed men who are a little bad, but secretly good. And Luke's a whiner.

  3. I figure this is going to be a race won by Solo, but I think there will be a battle for second place, between Chewie, Lando, and Boba Fett.

    Thanx for checking things out. See ya 'round the web.
