Hello all! I want to thank everyone for the well wishes, my family is slowly on the mend. I was the last to succumb to the illness which means I am also the last to feel better. But like I said, things are slowly getting better after a very difficult Thanksgiving holiday without being able to see my family.
One thing that saved my weekend was that my favorite team DESTROYED their rival in American College Football. I won't mention names but let's just say that the neighborhood could hear me celebrating! See, I am not being obnoxious...right @bozz? I didn't even say GO BLUE!
It was great to see so many responses with so much variety in our rivalry contest! There so many that I hadn't even thought of when I came up with the idea. I appreciate everyone's participation and I can't wait to get to the results...
Our first place winner in this contest is @gabrielrr17 with a review of Warrior found here: https://peakd.com/hive-121744/@gabrielrr17/cinetv-contest-la-ultima-pelea-warrior-esp-eng
How can there be a rivalry more than brothers? A tale as old as time. Thank you for this in depth review and highlighting this movie that I have not seen.
The second place finisher was @neiraurdaneta with a review of The Favourite found here: https://peakd.com/hive-121744/@neiraurdaneta/cine-tv-contest-39-the
Okay, so it isn't brothers or sisters but it sounds like this based on a true story review of two women is quite the rivalry. Trying to get the favor of the queen and increasing your standing would put anyone on edge and try to outdo a rival. Thank you!
In third place we have @brando28 with their choice of Rocky IV here: https://peakd.com/hive-121744/@brando28/cinetv-contest-rocky-wins-cold-war
Rocky had some amazing rivals. It's what made those movies special. But there are so many levels to this with the Cold War raging. It adds just another whole level of rivalry. Congrats!
225 CINE COINS and 100 Ecency Points will be transferred to the winners.
Now if anyone disagrees with our choices then please tag us in a comment on this post!
And let's move on to the new contest!
Favorite Tom Hanks Movie
Write about your favorite Tom Hanks movie.
So for this contest, I asked my wife to give me an idea for a movie contest and her brain went directly to her favorite actor, Tom Hanks. It's not that I am out of ideas but my brain hasn't been 100% recently due to illness. But I liked her idea and decided to roll with it even though to be honest she likes Tom Hanks WAY more than I do.
To be fair though, Tom Hanks has had such an amazing career that we could probably have 3 contests and still not get through his movies. For this contest, I want you to choose your favorite Tom Hanks movie, that you have never written about previously and give us a reason why you made this selection.
We are looking for personal reviews and NOT plagiarized or spun ones from other sites. Unfortunately, in the last week we have had a few people get banned for using other people's material from the web. We do check your content so please just use your own writing.
So a few writing prompts...why did you choose this film as your favorite Tom Hanks movie? What made him so special in the role? Could anyone else have played this role? What did Tom Hanks bring to the role? Do you like Tom Hanks as much as my wife? If he was a bit younger, should I be worried about my marriage? Just kidding on the last one. 😄
Be creative and I look forward to reading your selections. Good luck!
Please check out the list of rules and suggestions below or feel free to ask me in the Discord channel if you have any questions (caulderfreeman). Enjoy this week's contest and good luck!
