No major article today, but I thought I’d take just a moment for a quick poll. I’m considering making April a theme month. The idea is that along with the usual regular features, most of the posts during the month would focus on a specific topic.
I’ve got five different ideas for themes for the month, and I thought I would put it out to you, my readers, to let me know which of these you might find more interesting.
First up is Tarzan month. This would be a retrospective of, not all, because there have been far too many, but a number of the different incarnations of the jungle lord in film from the earliest days to the present.
The second option is Star Trek month where I would take a look at all of the major motion picture adventures of the crew of the Enterprise.
Third: Blaxploitation month. I’ve already covered a couple of films from the “blaxploitation wave of the 70s, buut there are plenty more out there to check out.
The fourth option is, movies of 1968. This is the 50th anniversary of one of the most interesting years in film history, and that makes for a good excuse to look back at it.
And finally, option five: not-quite-super heroes. Since we’re getting the new Avengers movie at the end of the month, I thought it might be fun to look back at some of the… let’s say less successful superhero adaptations over the years that preceded the current superhero boom.
So what do you think? I’d really like to get some input on this and see what those of you out there in the readership would like to see. Of course, you can also vote the “no theme” option if you prefer for the month to simply be more of the same: i.e. whatever crosses my desk and catches my fancy at the time.
So let me know, either in the comments below or on the Facebook page, both what your vote is and your thoughts on the subject or anything else having to do with the blog.
