A saga is a story about what happens to a group of characters over a long period of time, in this particular case, over a few movies.

The film Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970) is an interesting concept that lacked execution. It is much better than the book upon which it is based, Colossus(The Forbin Project). The concept behind the film and book is interesting, so long as it doesn't follow basic plot of Colossus trilogy: the Colossus(The Forbin Project), The Fall of Colossus and Colossus And Crab. The books got progressively worse.

Yes, Dan, my objective with this list/poll is exactly that, to acknowledge only the concepts of the mentioned movies.

Personally, I never saw that movie (or read the book), but by the description, it does seem like a good concept.

Bad Taste (1987)- "The population of a small town disappears and is replaced by aliens that chase human flesh for their intergalactic fast-food chain."

It could be like The Walking Dead except funny and interesting, and they could do the occasional scene or episode in outer space to switch things up

That would be more of a combination of 2 (or more) concepts, which doesn't meet the expectations of the list, and hopefully future poll. But I liked your idea.

In the meantime, Avatar is already becoming a saga. I believe 4 movies are under development.

And Blade Runner 2049 is a sequel of Blade Runner, also not meeting the expectations of the list.

O, Arrival, not The Arrival. For some reason, I automatically thought of the 1990s movie with Sheen, not the 2010s movie with Adams, then I checked the PS list again. Something could have been made of that older picture, but it never got a decent sequel.

I don't know if it's possible for someone to allow this to be changed now that it's posted, but the brief story-lines that can be seen on the list before it becomes a poll should be copy-and-pasted into the poll. It's hard to make a decision when you don't know what the movies are about, and its too time consuming to look up every single item on the list that you haven't seen.

To be honest, some of the movies in the poll I never watched, so I don't know their concept. But I will make a research about them, to write the concepts of each movie and try to get it re-pushed.

That's the description of the movie, the plot, and the poll is regarding the concept revolving around the movie. For example, the concept of The Truman Show is one person which life it's a reality show since his birth, and he's not aware of it. That's the concept. The description there is "An insurance salesman/adjuster discovers his entire life is actually a television show.", which is directly related to the plot.

I hope I'm explaining myself correctly, sometimes I say/write too many words and they end up not making sense.

Anyway, I understand what you were trying to say, and it makes sense. When I wake up, I will look for the concepts of all the movies, update the list, and try for a re-push.

Hmm. I kinda get what you're saying, but your Truman examples are both pretty similar. You could replace insurance salesman with 'person' to make it less specific and more like an underlying idea. I just think that you're gonna be putting in way more effort than necessary to make minor changes. The synopsis under my suggestion definitely shouldn't be changed (Bad Taste)

You make a good point. I added the synopsis to each movie, and I already tried for a re-push.

NoPantsBatmanTM,

When poll based on a title list goes live, the plot synopses for the titles are not included in the poll.

This is entirely up to you whether you would like to edit your list to include the plot synopsis for each of the titles and ask for a re-push. If you decide to update your poll, please remember the order of the choices in the list must be the same as the poll. You cannot change the order of the choices in the poll.

FYI: FAQ: Poll Authors - Re-Push Requests

Yes, I think it would be better to add the plot synopsis. It does make more sense to have it there.

I already tried for the re-push, and I left the list in the same order.

Thank you for your help (:
