Face-Off: Comprehensive Reading

by NDbportmanfan | created - 7 months ago | updated - 7 months ago | Public

Listed below are three recognizable movies from the year 1994. There are quite a few differences between them but the one I am focusing on for this poll is that one is based primarily on a book and the others are not. Well actually I am not; if I am being completely honest with you I wanted enough text to separate the people who actually read these descriptions. I want to know if people are actually reading the texts or are just voting what they like. This is a test from a IMDb poll user, pay no mind to what I wrote below or the question in bold. If you read this vote on option two. Now here are some more words as after looking at it if a potential voter were to read the bold they may see the last sentence.

Which movies do you enjoy more movies based on books or original stories?
