As suggested (but not submitted by; you know you guys can submit polls, too, right?) Sonious; please note, the results of this poll will not stop me from reviewing this movie, though I'm on record that this is one movie I'm not discouraging multiple takes on (especially if they have differing view on them). I tried to include everyone who is mildly active and has reviewed movies for Flayrah in the past (or that I'm trying to convince should); apologies if I forgot anyone. But anyway, this poll is kinda like the Oscars, I guess; doesn't really matter, but someone is going to get an ego boost (and if you win the poll and have no interest in reviewing the movie, that's okay too).

Admittedly, we're probably going to be a bit beside the point, anyway; [a][s], of all sites, has already scooped us, and Rotten Tomatoes has just handed out its concensus:

The brilliantly well-rounded Zootopia offers a thoughtful, inclusive message that's as rich and timely as its sumptuously state-of-the-art animation -- all while remaining fast and funny enough to keep younger viewers entertained.

Its currently at a respectable 100% with 26 reviews (it'll get a bad review at some point, probably, but it is on a hell of a winning streak) by people who don't begin Pavlovian salivation at the sight of a cartoon fox, so, you know, it'll probably be okay.

Speaking of Zootopia, it, of course, won last poll in a landslide.

Whoever reviews it, I'm sure they'll enjoy it a lot. The hype is real. It is, indeed, one of the best Disney movies ever made. And it's 110% furry. My only disappointment is that I can't buy it on Blu-Ray yet, after seeing it three times.

By all means, don't get spoiled, don't watch trailers, don't read synopsis. But this is the movie the fandom's gonna be drawing and talking about in the next years, more so than The Lion King.

I'd pick the most grumpy reviewer just to see them try giving it a bad grade, hurhurhur.

That'd be Cassidy, if you haven't already cast your vote; not that she's particularly grumpy.

She just literally signed up for Flayrah to cast shade in Zootopia story comments.

I don't really have anywhere else to put this, but I just saw a (non-furry, professional film journalists) conversation on Twitter that started when somebody said "It's as good as The Nut Job!" and then had to explain "No, that was a compliment; The Nut Job was great!" which I appreciated. Also, the conversation soon became about casting shade on CGI animal movies, before everyone admitted, actually, yeah, Zootopia is really good (also, The Nut Job).

Whoever it is, I'm sure I'll find something to disagree with. ^^

I think there's a 9 p.m. Imax showing here on Thursday that I could go see - but that's assuming the tickets aren't sold out. With limited public transit, I wouldn't get home until close to midnight to write up something, and then I'd be kind of a zombie at work on Friday. (I can't see the 7 pm showing because I've got an appointment with an accountant earlier.)

I'm in the middle of putting together an informal outing to go see it with some of the local furs on Saturday afternoon (once I know the show times), followed by a mini-furmeet at my place, in which case I wouldn't be writing a review until late Saturday night or Sunday morning. Personally I wasn't thinking of seeing it twice (nor paying for Imax rates) - I was hoping for the Saturday showing to feel as fresh as possible. But if folks really want an early review, I could try, but I'll be a bit grumpy about Saturday no longer being a surprise. Let me know?

Your rating: None

This poll is not a contractual obligation, either way. If you don't want to review it, you don't have to. I plan on putting out a review late Friday, early Saturday morning, by me, once again, regardless of polls result. And I've also been clear in the past that I think this is a movie everyone wants a piece of, so if you want to run a review, but wait until ... whenever, that's fine (and you can use the extra time to react against earlier pieces, point out things I or other reviewers missed, or just plain disagree).

What did I tell you, what did I f*****' tell you! Rotten Tomatoes, 83 reviews, 100% score, certified fresh. Zootopia officially is the Best Disney Movie in the last 20 YEARS!! TOOT-TOOOOT!

Well if multiple people want to do it, there is a "Page" function on the article creation tool I haven't seen utilized yet. One page per reviewer would be an interesting format.
