New Poster Battle Poll + Vogue Results

By December 22, 2010Site-news

With the Your Highness poster having arrived, and the No Strings Attached poster landing a few weeks ago, I thought we could do a mini battle to see which poster is better.


Now vote!

As for the Vogue poll, not a single vote was cast for the very negative option, but the winning option was the more lukewarm positive opinion. Full results after the jump.

What’s your verdict on the Vogue US photo shoot?

Pretty good, but I’m not doing cartwheels. – 41.1% (67 votes)

One of the very best. Put it in the pantheon. – 33.7% (56 votes)

Individually they’re great. Collectively they’re too similar. – 18.4% (30 votes)

Quite disappointing, but its better than nothing. – 6.7% (11 votes)

    Just wanted to bring your attention to this article, it’s pretty similar to what you were saying a week or so ago:

    No Strings Attached.

    How can those legs look so long when she is so short?

  • awiseone says:

    Yes it’s similar because the idea more than likely come from this site which unfortunately at times fuels negative blogs about Natalie and from here it goes to ONTD and where it goes from there it’s anyones guess.

    There are a lot of folks who really “HATE” Natalie and are not happy about the “Black Swan” positive responses…They will do anything to detract from that.

    So I’m going on the record saying I feel it’s a travesty that this site is openly “TRASHING” a film she has made before even seeing it because they don’t like the genre or the co star. Her production company is producing it and a site that carries her namesake is campaigning for it to fail…You want to see Natalie fail!

    End of rant.

  • dazza says:

    Travesty? Woah, climb down off that soapbox, you might hurt yourself.

    I always want Natalie to succeed and I hope No Strings Attached is absolutely brilliant. But I don’t want to be a fan who loves everything that she does. To me that’s just mindless and somewhat creepy fandom. I give my opinions on this site, and I encourage the opinions of others as well, which is why we have this poll and why we post news stories that are positive as well as the occasional negative one.

    The “idea” of No Strings=Norbit was on film blogs, who have no axe to grind with Natalie at all, before it was mentioned here. Get your facts straight before coming up with ridiculous theories.

    Awise, I have a lot of respect for you, but a sizable chunk of it was lost after that post. Truly disappointing.

  • Nannina says:

    I’m going to go on the record saying I think it is a tragedy how few people know how to use the word travesty correctly. It’s a great word, sort of a combination of caricature, parody, and mockery.

    But seriously, Awiseone (and less snarkily (sorry about that)) I don’t think that this website fuels blogs at all. The same comparison was made two years ago with Anne Hathaway being nominated for Rachel Getting Married just as Bride Wars *shudder* came out. I’m a huge Natalie fan, I think she’s great, that said she has made some movies I didn’t like. I’ve read the script of No Strings, and I’m extremely wary of it. I’m hopeful (always hopeful), but my expectations are low. One of the things I like about this site is that it is willing to occasionally (and really it’s very occasionally) post things that aren’t 100% positive about her. Nobody is perfect, no actor or actress picks all good roles, there’s no point in pretending that they do.

    All that said I don’t think it’s fair to judge a movie too conclusively before it comes out. No Strings might be very good (if they’ve done some serious revision on that script).

  • awiseone says:

    You say we are supposed to have lively discussions well that’s what this is. And I stand by my words because it’s what I see. I don’t think everything Natalie does is wonderful(speaking of her work only)…I respect her body of work but don’t necessarily love everything she has done.

    The hidden message behind the poster survey is which movie do you like better…Are you not using HY to cannibalize NSA? I mean they are both movies that feature her.

    This site does get quoted out there thru ONTD next time it happens I will send you the link and it’s always something negative.

    Who knows I may hate NSA but I am willing to at least give it a chance by viewing it before I decide one way or another.

    As for losing respect for me because of the post well that’s life and I’m a big girl and can deal with it.

  • Nannina says:

    But oh yeah… the point I wanted to make. I don’t know if it is on purpose, but I think the Your Highness poster is too similar to King Arthur’s

  • omgzrachel says:

    I can’t decide. The YH poster is full of awesome people, but the NSA poster is more aesthetically pleasing.

  • clone says:

    no strings attached.

    It’s more realistice, whileyour highness is sort of silly.

  • dazza says:

    Awise, your paranoia is really out of control. Is that really your read on it? I wanted to do a poll about the new YH poster and couldn’t recall if we did one for the No Strings poster as it came out just before the blackout.

    So I thought let’s do an staple and get opinions of both in the form of a fun battle. The poll was incredibly fair and I even accounted for people who might not want to choose one over the other.

    On top of that, I mentioned in the poll reminding people that they were voting for the posters not the films.

    I actually voted for No Strings, which shouldn’t be a surprise since I already said on the site that I thought it was a pretty good poster and I also said on the site that the YH poster didn’t really do it for me.

    But keep those assumptions coming.

  • dazza says:

    As for ONTD taking negative comments or articles from here, I really couldn’t care less. On the few occasions that I’ve had the displeasure on having to go to that site, I’ve immediately regretted it. Most of them seem like a bunch of whiny children and if they want to bitch and moan and re-appropriate things from here, let them.

  • awiseone says:

    From that perspective I admit I am perhaps being a bit more sensitive about it than is necessary.

    The films really play to two completely different audiences in terms of it’s target demographic anyway.
