Face-Off: Comprehensive Reading

by NDbportmanfan | created - 28 May 2019 | updated - 11 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 from the ones who do not read them. I want to know if people are actually reading the texts or are just voting for what they like. This is a test from an IMDb poll user, pay no mind to what I wrote below or the question in bold. If you read this text, vote on option two. Do not vote for any other option than option two. Now, here are some more words as after looking at a given poll, a potential voter might skip to merely read the bold text of the question.

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