Maybe this has to do with his ordinary middle-aged features, but the face of Bryan Cranston is really one of fascinating physical versatility. Of course, this has a lot to do with the actors' talent, but there's always something in the facial hair (or lack of) and the actors' expression that say a lot about his characters, without even watching him act, a pic is enough. And for that poll, 30 pics, each one conveying a particular look, have been selected.

So, which of these 30 faces of Bryan Cranston do you find the most interesting (in an appealing way, of course)?

As a poet said: "it's when you have reached the mountain top, that you shall begin to climb."... indeed, the real journey is always within ourselves.

And there's an interesting narrative value in the road-movie format when it comes to character studies, especially with existential undertones, as if there was an inevitable parallel between the road taken by the protagonists, of known or uncertain destination, and the path to their own souls' discovery, with as many encounters as revelations of fascinating and contradictory aspects of their personalities.

On that level, which of these existential road-movies, ranked by year of release, do you find the most fascinating?

(The movies have to be set in contemporary times, with a road trip playing a significant part to the plot. Fleeing or evading police or any authoritarian figure shouldn't be the main motive, the road trip is voluntary and freed from any sense of urgency)

Rest in Peace, Muhammad Ali (1942-2016)


Muhammad Ali was, and still is, the greatest boxer who ever lived, and statistics have less to do with it than his extraordinary larger-than-life personality, one that was defined by its tormented era as much as it defined it. His unbelievably cocky arrogance, his defiance toward the system, his charisma, charm, wit, poetic eloquence and sense of humor, then the wisdom and humility he showed at the twilight of his life while facing the disease, were the stuff that built, and much deservedly so, his legend.

So, which of these 20 inspirational, insolent or poetic, but all memorable, quotes from the 'Legend' is your favorite?

Call it opinion, generational bias or simply nostalgia... but I always had the feeling that *my* generation (those who grew up during the 80's and early 90's) was blessed with some of the greatest and most thrilling animated TV series ever, all with their share of adventures, thrills and fun ... and even some obscure (yet appealing) weirdness.

It's to this long forgotten period set after the Hanna-Barbera's Golden Age and before the Pokemons, that this poll pays tribute. Now, some of the series I had the privilege to grow up with, have already been adapted to movies, among them "TNMT", "Inspector Gadget", "The Smurfs" and "Transformers" and I concede that the results didn't always match our expectations.

But maybe this is because the producers didn't pay attention to the series with greater potential. Personnally, I've always wondered why I could never see Lawrence Fishburne playing 'Bullet-Proof' in a movie adaptation of "C.O.P.S" or how come an environmentalist cartoon like "Captain Planet" was never given a chance to enlighten the younger generations about the dangers that threaten our planet. Go figure why.

But here's the question: which of these (forgotten?) 80's/90's animated series would make the most awesome live-action adaptation?

Discuss here

PS: I'm fully aware that this poll might only please those who were born between the late 70's and late 80's (20% according to the last poll I suggested) but I suspect even those who were born before and after (re-runs exist, don't they?) will be familiar with some of these titles.

Margaret Evelyn Simpson, aka Maggie, is perhaps the least-hyped Simpson family member, and for reasons: she's been frozen in baby age for about three decades and despite a few shining, even heroic, moments, she's been acting like a one-year old most of the time, sucking on her trademark red pacifier whose sound constitutes her unique catchphrase.

However, little Maggie was given a few opportunities to talk, whether in the first shorts or the classic episodes, whether in the official continuity or in dream sequences or non-canon Halloween shorts. And these moments where Maggie speaks are so rare they are instantly memorable.

So, which line, spoken by Maggie Simpson, is your personal favorite? (no baby talk, even subtitled or translated)

(Inspired by the "Quotable Movie Genres" polls)

Which of these 25 iconic movie characters, ranked in unbiased alphabetical order, would you consider the most quotable of all-time?

Discuss here

To be eligible, the character must have at least 10 ten popular or memorable lines, including the obligatory catchphrase(s). If the character is from a quotable movie, he or she must be the one with the lion-share of one-liners, which doesn't dismiss the possibility of having two characters from the same movie or series. And most the popular quotes must consist on standalone lines, not answers or wisecracking come-backs.

(There are two exceptional cases though: Groucho Marx and Woody Allen. Since picking their most quotable characters would be an impossible exercise and only one an insult to their stature as comedic writers and their classic lines' writing record, one category is dedicated to their trademark characters: Marx' wisecracking sharpie with an unusual name and Allen's neurotic geeky New Yorker.)

These female celebrities all have something in common, they were hugely successful (and some of them, highly influential) in movies and/or TV, despite it being a world that favors physical beauty over talent, especially when it comes to women.

Since asking which Pacino's character is the most iconic will inevitably turn the poll to a "Corleone vs. Montana" face-off, let's get to one of the most defining aspect of his cinematic legacy: quotability.

Accepting his honorary Oscar in 1971, Charlie Chaplin said: "This is an emotional moment for me and words seem so futile, so feeble...".

Indeed, emotions can hardly be translated into words and without words, Chaplin touched the hearts of millions of people in the world, at times where laughs and cheers, trust and optimism were needed, and sometimes, the price for these laughs was one or two little tears. Like Disney for animation, Chaplin handled drama with the same talent as for comedy, providing necessary tears for movies mostly made of joy, because that's what humanity is made of.

And only when the worst was to come for humanity, Chaplin spoke, finally, from the bottom of his heart, because there's a time for laughs, for tears and when it's called for, anger.

Celebrating the 126th birthday of the emotional genius, a man of timeless and universal appeal, here's a simple question, which of these 25 scenes from his movies (short ones included) do you think is the most iconic?

*SPOILERS in the Descriptive Texts

Some titles get their full meaning when the movie reaches its climax.

Of course, sometimes, we expect the titular 'plot element' to play a key role at the climax, sometimes, we don't even know what the title means (is it literal or symbolic?) until that very part but either ways, the film's final impact is twice more satisfying because it's both emotionally rewarding and it gives the title its meaning.

So, which climactic moment best met the expectations you made from the title?

Discuss here

Titular settings and protagonists are not included as they're expected to be part of the climaxes.

*** MAJOR SPOILERS !!! ***

We all make mistakes, don't we... and it's a common trope to have a movie character make one mistake that causes or accelerates his downfall or starts the whole chain of troubles. In One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: McMurphy doesn't leave at night to help Billy, then he gets drunk and sleeps, then he can't escape when he hears a scream, in Sunset Blvd., Joe comes back to Norma because she tried to commit suicide, in Heat, Neil can leave but chooses first to settle accounts with Waingro, in Scarface, Tony Montana refuses the banker's rates, and precipitates his downfall by killing Sosa's right-hand man etc.

But these are not the mistakes this poll is about, because they all have a 'good' reason to happen, the protagonist is somewhat pushed to make this fatal choice by his qualities, his flaws or sometimes, he's just screwed over by fate, there are tragic mistakes. Now, the following list contains ten really bad mistakes, made under circumstances where the character could really think twice before making the choice. These ten moves were so badly thought, so ridiculously doomed to fail or so dangerously stupid that even the fans of the movie have a hard time justifying them.

Now, since nothing is really irrational, the main justification for these mistakes is always ego, hubris, overestimating one's intelligence or the enemy's stupidity, or, from a screenwriter's perspective, the fact that there would be no story otherwise. But seriously, which of these ten mistakes do you find the hardest to accept, no matter how good the film is?

Just before the Oscars, this is the O.S.C.A.R.S, and it's not a typo since the acronym stands for... Oscar Survey Collecting Actors' Random Stats.

What do I mean by 'random stats'? Well simply everything you wanted (or didn't know you wanted) to know about the Oscar... nominations and wins for acting, and (while not afraid to ask) just didn't have the time to look for because well, you have a life.

Anyway, such data as demographics, generational milestones, names and characters' trivia, line-ups and odds, are now available, and if it took some cinematic-datamaniac to get this done, well, here they are. And it was such an exhausting job, it needed to be divided in three parts, starting with the Overviews.

This is more of a trivia thing disguised as a poll, let's face it, but we can make it a little more fun and challenging, so here's the question: which of these stats did you find the most interesting, useful, fascinating, mindblowing or mildly amusing? Well, which one did you prefer?

Well, all good things come to an end. So, we come to the final part of the Oscar Survey Collecting Actors' Random Stats and probably the juiciest one: the line-ups.

What makes the line-ups so interesting is that there's no real pattern, except for the category and the gender, but apart from that, any actor from any age, can be nominated and win. But after 88 years, some line-ups stand out and become more memorable. Some patterns even appear and can help for a few predictions.

But overall, the premise is also to rediscover the great actors and actresses who walked on the red carpet, dreamt in gold, and got a few statuettes back home over the course of their careers.

But each poll needs a question, and the question is: which of these line-ups do you find the coolest or most interesting?

And you better believe him, 'cause if there's one thing Rocky Balboa knows a little about, it's winning. But never the easy way and I guess that's the reason Rocky is the most enduring and endearing character of Cinema's history, as we celebrate this year, his extraordinary come-back, and Stallone's most acclaimed performance since the first Rocky.

And after you climb it, build another one; otherwise you start to flatline in your life."

In 2009, it was decided that the number of Best Picture nominees would be expanded to 10 (or close to 10), after the huge criticism the Academy faced when The Dark Knight (and to a lesser extent WALL·E) was left out from the Best Picture nominations, despite being one of the most popular, successful and critically acclaimed movies of the year.

Indeed, The Dark Knight didn't just change the face of IMDb Top 10 movies forever, it also changed the rules of the Academy.

Now, 2015 is a pretty competitive year in terms of acting performances, to the point that many of them have been put in the supporting categories, although they were leading ones, and the supporting categories were already full of strong contenders.

The question is asked to all of you, movie fans: in order to avoid these 'category frauds' or any upsetting snub from happening, or at least decrease the risks, should the Academy expand the number of nominees in the acting categories to 10?

Which of these options comes the closest to your opinion?

After so many polls, the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Moroccan independence and now that the Festival of Marrakech made Morocco the capital of World Cinema for a few days, I figured it was time to pay a little tribute to my country.

Indeed, ever since the early years of Hollywood Golden Age, Morocco has been a darling for film-makers in quest for an exotic setting. Indeed, many sword-and-sandals, religious and historical epics, many adventure, war and spy thrillers are set in Morocco.

Discuss here

On a side (ironic) note, the most iconic movie to put Morocco on cinematic maps hasn't been shot in Morocco, inspiring a famous segment from a Rock'n'Roll Moroccan song (yes, it exists) that pays tribute to the 'greatness' of America and the way it dwarfs any country (including Morocco):

"We [Moroccans] know Marlon Brando, Robert de Niro,
And Clint Eastwood and every film from Hollywood.
And Miles Davis, and Carl Lewis,
And Sharon Stone, and Bill Clinton...

But you [Americans], what do you know about us?
Yeah, you, what do you know about us?

Aaah, Casablanca the movie, naturally,
Shot in Hollywood, entirely,
Because of that, for more than 50 years,
You think we still live in Black and White.

And we all have in our minds this immortal, and incredibly romantic, quote delivered by Bogart is Casablanca. Basically, Rick invites Ilsa, in a moment of deep sadness, to stick to the one happy memory they both share, which is that beautiful time they had in Paris, and that no one will ever take away from them, not even war, not even terror.

And I guess this quote painfully echoes the events that recently stroke the most beautiful town in the world. No matter what happens, we must all remember Paris, as the symbol of happiness and lifetime memories, the world's must-see, a magical town that movies never ceased to paid tribute to, and it's not a hazard that most of them happen to be romances.

And in this melancholy time for the world, as we all have a little of Paris in our hearts, I thought it would be a good idea to pay a cinematic homage to the City of Lights, in memory of the victims of the Paris attacks, and in fact, all the innocent victims of terror and barbarity in the world.

Yep another face-off between the two eternal "rivals" of the New Hollywood generation Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.

Among the many things they got in common (besides looking exactly the same during their respective Oscar-win), the two actor were Oscar-nominated five times for Best Actor (and won once in that category).

So, which of these 5-set of Oscar-nominated performances is the most impressive (or least unimpressive if you're not a fan)?

Five criminals botch a job so badly that they're sentenced to death by the Man-With-the-Plan, played by a creepier-than-ever Christopher Walken. As he said, they've become 'buckwheats'.

Take some sharp and edgy dialogues, some noir and fatalistic undertones and a a cast of virile outcasts, and you get one of the most brilliant representants of the new wave of post-Tarantino crime flicks, celebrating its 20th annniversary this year: Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead.

Yet the term post-Tarantino is a bit unfair, although this little gem was released after (and then be automatically outshadowed by) Pulp Fiction, the script was written before the release of Tarantino's masterpiece... and the same year than another story about five criminals: The Usual Suspects, talk about bad timing.

Still, what a script, friendship à la Once Upon a Time in America, redemption à la Mean Streets, two classic themes … but how many other gangster films make you also think about the meaning of life through the story of five criminals facing imminent death...

The question is rather simple, which of the five actors who've played the doomed criminals do you find the most underrated and are you most looking forward to seeing playing a big role on the big screen?

It finally happened, as in Back to the Future Part II, we're in ****'October 21, 2015'****, the day Marty, Doc (and Jennifer) came to see their future, which we just reached. It is, now, the present... and it's soon to become the past.

... and we can't help but feel cheated: where we go, we still need roads, there's no self-lacing sneakers, no pizza hydrator and more than anything, no hover-board!!! (well, at least, there's no Jaws 19 registered on IMDb...) Anyway, the general feeling is that the 'real' 2015 kind of sucks.

But now that the saga has reached a pivotal time of its existence where all the dates our heroes went to belong to the past, which one would you choose to visit, if you had the DeLorean and could only pick one?

Not that I expect this to make a poll (too 'raunchy' material maybe) but this is a question that is quite fun to ask, as I'm sure we all have a thing for something.

Many directors are famous for having a specific fetish, and since movies are more-or-less 'personal' creations, it generally showed in most of their movies. Of course, most of these little obsessions target persons of female persuasion, but I think it's not that difficult to figure out the other-gender equivalent, so :

Which of these fetishes do you share with one of these directors? If you don't have any, which one do you personally find the most 'understandable'?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IMDb!
(PS: THIS IS NOT A 'FAVORITE MOVIE' POLL)


Would you believe it but by a delightful coincidence, 25 actors (in fact 22 actresses and 3 actors) have been nominated to an acting Oscar in the year of their 25th birthday, and seven of them won.

This called for a poll, but not any question for that poll. There's one extremely popular movie from IMDb Top 250 and most of the movies listed wouldn't stand a chance in a vote of popularity, so the question is :

Which of these performances, and subsequently movies, would you be the most curious or eager to DISCOVER if you were given the chance to pick one?

PS: the years are not the years of release, but nominations, and of course, they had to be alive that year, this is why James Dean is absent from the list, as he died at the age of 24.

Anniversaries that are multiples of five have special, almost magical significance. IMDb was founded on October 17, 1990. It is celebrating its 25th silver anniversary in October 2015, a two-fold "magical" significance. These living Oscar-winning actors will celebrate a birthday that is a multiple of five in 2015.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of IMDb and as IMDb regular users, we've probably been confronted to most of these thread's clichés... and we're probably guilty of some of them, but that doesn't prevent us from being annoyed by any of the others, which I could separate in 6 categories :

Inappropriate comments, hostile fanboys, plot discussions, copy-paste (posts that don't require much efforts from the OP), pointless threads and the weirdest reactions, in the last category : surrealism (trolls are not included because their very purpose is to generate irritated reactions).

So, which of these, unintentionally annoying, thread clichés irritates you the most?

The quotes should :
- feature the name of one animal, at least
- be about the animal, not the food (or anything related to food) or someone's name
- not be a speech or a monologue or anything from which we can extract one line containing the name of an animal without it being the most memorable part anyway.
