When does Bladerunner 2049, Avatar, Dark City, Equilibrium and Cube 2 feature virtual reality scenes?
Also, if you included Inception and The Cell, because you consider dreams to be virtual reality, then Vanilla Sky also deserves to be on this list.

It's been a while but would either The Fifth Element, Minority Reort or 12 Monkey's fall under this category?

I like many movies on the list, but my vote will probably go towards Videodrome (1983)

Hi Ibrahim,

I don't think any VR scenes or moments was shown in any of the 'Transformers' movies.

Live Poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/derosaSviHs/?ref_=po_ho. Hooray!

I'm betting this will do quite well. I wish someone with a lot of money would take that bet so I could pay off some of my student loans. :)

Suzy,

I was planning to arrange a fun game on our Facebook group called - "Which Poll Do You Think Will Be on the Home Page Next?"

Let's see who gets the maximum prediction right.

Anyway, my pick for next home page poll is today's "Funniest Comedy" poll.

This "Virtual Reality" poll has a chance because of 'Player One's' success, but I don't see it at this moment.

Please help me. :)

I can't remember the VR-Scenes in "Equilibrium".
Were they in a learning-sequence? I wanted to vote for
"Equilibrium", but I don't remember - so i've chosen
"Surrogates". Seems to be the most realistic scenario
beside "Equilibrium".Even when the both "Tron"-movies
are more about using VR as mattering content for the
story.  :)

Hi Elmu,

There is nothing secret in my polls. One thing I always follow is to make a poll simple and easy to understand for all and based on simple topics.

In the case of this particular poll, I guess it is pretty much timely as 'Ready Player One (2018)' doing great at the box office. That's why it got picked.

I didn't say there was a secret in your poll, but a secret behind your constantly successful picks.

I know there are timely polls, special events poll and random polls, this one is like the one I suggested after the release of Spielberg's "The Post" with "Movies That Knew Too Much", in fact I try to suggest in the three categories but I don't know... I've been missing that homepage train for more than a semester now and I kind of feel like Mr. Pink or Fredo Corleone again.

 I know it won't get better with complaining but sometimes you just need to speak your heart out...

Elmo,

I wish you get some home page polls soon. I always wish that for people who makes brilliant poll but gets very few on home page.

One thing I forgot to mention, besides the quantity of your poll you need to have a good luck.

Many of my polls that I thought would be featured at home page, wasn't published there.

Elmo, don't be so obsessed with the homepage; that's a mystery we'll never solve. :)

Yeah, it's a riddle for ages... but I'm sorry Jessica, every five or six months, I need to let it out and sound like some dick then I can calm down and say "C'est la vie"

I was dead set on 'Inception' until I thought about it. It's not virtual reality, it's dream sharing. It's a world in the mind, not in a computer.

DC,

Is your app being displayed on the mobile version? It seems that the Video Games poll is being shown on the web version homepage of IMDb while yours is being displayed on the app version. Always that the IMDb website and mobile app would display the same homepage poll at a point in time.

Peru,

I don't use IMDb App.

In web version page (http://www.imdb.com/), I am seeing Favorite Movie About Video Games poll on the home page.



And also in mobile version page (http://m.imdb.com/), I am seeing the same Favorite Movie About Video Games poll on the home page.

Oh weird. My roommate showed me that he saw your "VR" poll on IMDb on his phone... I just found the spike in votes weird since 7 days ago it had 5000 votes. Ever since then, the Video Games poll has been featured instead. Wondering how it more than doubled in votes while it wasn't on the HP.

I also see DC's poll in the home page of the IMDb app (for iPhone). I don't usually check what is displayed there.

...and I was thinking all the time that how my poll is getting around 1,000 votes daily without being featured at IMDb Home Page.

From Peru and Pibby I have finally got my answer.

I am pretty sure that when my VR poll was on the home page, a different poll was showing on the IMDb App. Because as per my calculation, a poll having those popular titles can get at least 3,000 votes daily it it gets featured at each and every platforms of IMDb. 

The VR poll was on the home page for 3 days and at that time it got a total of around 2,600 votes.
