Midnight Movies After the Heyday
The heyday of the midnight movies phenomena was from 1970 to 1977. For more information see the poll: Midnight Movie Phenomena. From 1977 many leading midnight movie venues switched back to their original programming of live acts and present mainstream movies. The Elgin Theatre in New York City, where the midnight movie movement began, shut down completely in 1978. In succeeding years many independent theaters ceased to exist because of the popularization of the VCR and cable television. During the late 1970s and early 1980s concert films became popular midnight screenings. New films, now from mainstream distributors, were picked up by the midnight movie circuit, but the core of exhibitors that energized the movement had disappeared. In 1988 the Toronto International Film Festival introduced the nightly Midnight Madness section. In the years since, new or recent films still occasionally emerge as midnight movie "hits" on the circuit of theaters that continue to show them.

Road Trip! 1980+ Edition
You get to tag along a road trip with one of the following groups - which one do you choose? Not (necessarily) the best or your favorite movie - it's the group you'd most like to hang out a few days on their road trip. Inspired by http://www.imdb.com/list/-sZYHX7NdC8/ You get to (roughly) experience what they experienced in the movie (for better or worse). To keep it to a reasonable number of items, I am applying the following constraints: * There are at least two "central" characters but no more than three people already on the road trip, you are the 3rd (or 4th, * The movie is about an era that is 1980s or more recent. * The main characters spend a fair amount of time in a vehicle. * Are live action and not science fiction/fantasy (not animated or puppets) Because the list is limited to 35 items, there are valid entries that would probably not be plausible choices for anyone (e.g. they're basically awful or horrific experiences), so I've roughly chosen the more popular entries by moviemeter.

Pride Week: Most LGBT-Proud Film
To celebrate Pride Week, which, depending on the country and city, is held in June or the first week of July, which of the films below do you think best embodies the spirit of LGBT Pride? After voting, discuss here. To view or vote in Part 2 of this poll, go here. To vote in other Pride polls, go here. If you're interested in a bit of background: As the 1995 documentary, The Celluloid Closet, illustrates, for a long time in cinema, most LGBT characters were portrayed to evoke laughter, pity, or fear. Movies like those, whether in early cinema or later (as in Basic Instinct), are obviously not represented in this poll. Relatively early on, there were screenwriters, such as Gore Vidal (Ben-Hur) and Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause), who did write in positive messages but they had to be so subtle, or be left on the editing room floor, that the films, although they should be appreciated for widening the lens, don't really qualify as proud. Cinema evolved as society did and more realistic and diverse LGBT characters appeared on screen. All of these films don't necessarily have perfect messages but are noteworthy in some way; which of them do you think best captures the spirit of LGBT Pride?

Queens, But Not Exactly Royalty
In the movies and in fictional literature, the title or word “Queen” has been used in a variety of ways as parts of songs, fictional titles, people outside of royalty, places, bands, and some things not human. We may even use the names of real historical Queens as long as they are long dead. (Let’s leave the name of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd out of this - she might get offended at being included in this group.) Which TYPE of queen is your favorite? If you have a name of a movie queen to suggest, you can have her shout “Off with her head” here. Yeah, that is a reference to a classic line from one of these characters. Just remember to have fun with this and DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.
Gender Bender movies are movies in which a person dresses, behaves and speaks in a way characteristic of the opposite gender.
