Stranded! (Alien Planet Edition)
This is one of a series of "Stranded" Polls. You are stranded on your own on an alien planet for one week until help arrives. You have modest food, environmental protection (e.g. suit with oxygen as appropriate), a weapon in keeping with the film, and make-do shelter, but by no means are you in a safe or secure position. In which of these environments would you LEAST want to have to weather that one week? Note: assume the hostile 'elements' of the film/tv show hold, but you have no colleagues, high-powered/exotic weapons or default "shelter" of the film/tv show. Further Note: This is NOT (likely to be) your favorite film. Discuss here
Watch, Rinse, and Repeat
There are those movies that we all love so dearly that we inevitably are compelled by some unknown force that uncontrollably makes us watch them over and over. Some are from our childhoods. Some we watch after having our hearts broken for the umpteenth time. Others just awaken us with awe and wonder at what might be. These movies we watch again and again to remind of us what we were and dreams yet to be fulfilled. What is the movie you re-watch that makes you forget about your own troubles in life, and brings back that feeling you had in an earlier time, and re-freshens your soul? After voting, please discuss here. The titles in this list are loosely based off of this article, Top 50 Most-Watched Movies of All Time.

The Real Top 35 Hollywood Blockbusters of All Time - Inflation Adjusted
Filmsite.org, who was polite enough to mention that the IMDb, Boxoffice.com, Boxofficemojo.com, and The-numbers.com in their intro to ALL-TIME TOP 100 FILMS (Domestic Gross, Inflation-Adjusted), said, as of January 15, 2019, these were the top 35 films for the USA domestic box office. These are the real Hollywood box office blockbusters, not the lists that only use today’s actuals and forget to adjust the box office for ticket inflation for the older films, aka, count the number of tickets sold. However there is one big flaw in this list and that is many of the films have been released more than once. In fact, one originally flopped, and later found its true audience in a re-release in the 1950s and 1960s. With that being said, it still does not take away from the accomplishments of those that had only one release and still made the list. Which one of these films is your favorite? Discuss the films here. They are listed in order from highest to lowest. If you want to see the rest of the 100 list, use the link in this description.
