A Club Jade Poll

I polled a number of CJers on the releases of 2005 and here are the results:

Best Movie
Revenge of the Sith came out on top with 45.5% of the vote. Serenity made a strong show for second place with 40.9%, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was third with 27.3%.

Best Fan Parody
No surprise here: it was the Star Wars Trilogy: Musical Edition that captured the majority vote with 61.9%. In second place, the comic I <3th Darth.

Best Star Wars Fiction
Matt Stover’s Revenge of the Sith novelization was the clear winner with 81.0%.

Best SW nonfiction/reference
With 66.7%, Dressing a Galaxy was our favorite non-fiction publication.

Best genre TV
I admit I slipped up here, forgetting to include at least two shows (Stargate and Stargate:Atlantis) so the majority vote was a tie between Battlestar Galactica and ‘Other’. D’oh.

This completely unscientific poll is still open for members.

Get those toes a-tapping

Plans are underway for composer Adam Guettel and screenwriter William Goldman to bring “The Princess Bride” to the stage as a musical.

Speaking of musicals (nice segue!), the London revival of “Guys and Dolls” has recouped its capitalization in just 17 weeks.

While we’re still on the topic, don’t miss your chance to see “Star Wars: The Musical Edition” playing in Boston in November.
