Live Poll: Find Carmen Now! (Image List)

The list page: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls080828537/
Live Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/ptFUsNetrog/?mode=desktop&ref_=m_ft_dsk

The world famous computer game, television show and animated show, thief, Carmen Sandiego is at it again! It is up to you, intrepid detectives, must do two things. 1) (for fun) figure out where she is and 2) of which of these following crimes she most likely will commit! All we got for clues are these vague rumors and image references to movies. Some think that this a diabolical plot to trick people to interact with the IMDB to read the movie summaries for clue to figure out where Carmen is. Parish the thought! No one is that devious. (Yes, I am.) Which crime is Carmen most likely to pull?

In case you have heard any other rumors about where she is, report them here. (You have to go here for the answers too. Just make sure to report rumors with lots of clues, location of the crime, and an object to be stolen. Also, the stolen object must be so silly and outlandish that it can’t be possibly stolen in real life, like the smile off the Mona Lisa‘s face, so therefore we are not encouraging a real life crime. (It is called being socially responsible.)

I going to limit the options down to about 15 to 25 to make it easier on the guys at the IMDB to post this as a poll.

In the text, "Parish the thought!" should be "Perish the thought!"

"I going to limit the options down to about 15 to 25 to make it easier on the guys at the IMDB to post this as a poll."

I would remove this line as it isn't really necessary.

And please correct:
It is up to you, intrepid detectives, to do two things.

As you know, I love this poll. I think I'm still leaning toward voting for the smile off of Mona Lisa's face but if that gets a ton of votes, I could easily vote for others. There are so many good choices. 

The intro is also really funny, which doesn't surprise me because you're always so good at coming up with those witty versions of "discuss here," lol. May I suggest just a few edits to the intro, though? 'Just small things like adding a comma because I'm such a punctuation nerd. (Suggested edits are below in bold.)

I'm sorry if these are not what you're looking for, I'm not sure if I understand your poll, but here it goes.

FYC:

1. Carmen stole the infinity stones from Steve Rogers (Captain America) while Steve went to return those stones. Steve lied about how he got old; he did not spend the rest of his life with Peggy. He was searching for Carmen all his life but couldn't find her. Eventually, Steve accepted his defeat and gave up his shield.

2. As soon as Jules and Vincent exit the restaurant, Carmen stole the briefcase from them. ('Pulp Fiction' alternate ending)

3. Do you know why they never showed what was in the box at the end of 'Se7en'? Because there was nothing in the box. Carmen stole it from the delivery guy.

I've got a few more suggestions but I want to see if I'm going on the right track. Also, sorry for not providing any images.

I will add 1 and 2. But SeVen” no because it does mention what is in the box. Cutting people’s heads off is a little too close to real. I can name a few movies where that happens and where a chopped off head is used. That is why I rejected my own idea of using “The Mask of Zoro”. The brother’s head is in a jar on Captain Love’s desk.

In fact, Captain Henry Love, Joaquin Murrieta, and Three Finger Jack were real. historical figures used in a fictional story. Love did do that to two people he caught. Cut off their heads, put them in a jar of brandy, and set them out on display. I won’t use that for this poll or “Seven” either.

BonaFideBOSS, just put a variation of your Captain American suggestion and added a place on to the list. I had just remembered who was the true owner of the Soul Stone in the comics and who ripped the Gauntlet off of Thanos’s arm at the end of the 1st infinity gauntlet series. Adam Warlock. Do you like the changes?

BonaFideBOSS, I finally figured how to fit Pulp fiction into the list. The briefcase can’t simply disappear because it was seen at the beginning of the film that Vincent and Jules returning the case to Marcellus. Therefore, since Quentin Tarantino’s movies don take place in a Linear A to b to c timeline fashion, the ending of the hitman’s story takes place before the beginning of the boxer’s story. Thus forming a ring. A Ring? That gave me an idea! But I just couldn’t take just any ring and the master ring of the Lord of the Rings would have been just too clique. So I though of the most silliest one. And obviously Carmen would have curious just what Wallace’s most prized possession was.

Your text in option #12 (Dorothy) has a typo, it says "Ace Detrctive", should be "Ace Detective". 
in #13 (Amelie) it says "I'm going to Steel", should be "I'm going to steal"
#6 with James Bond should have COVID-19 all in capital letters.

Dgranger, there are pending corrections above, and some suggestion by Bonafide if you want to consider them

The corrections are done.

I’m not going to do “SeVen”. If anything I would consider that one for a Halloween 🎃 poll about movies with severed heads or beheadings,: “Seven”

”Hush hush Sweat Charlotte”

”Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lighting Thief”

”The Mask Of Zorro”

”The Last Samurai”

”Halloween H20”

”Braveheart”

”Indians Jones and the last Crusade” (the first test in the cave)

”The Haunted Mansion”

(and a few more old horror movies).

BonafideBoss’s other to suggestions are missing 1 thing, a place, a location.

And please, also delete the last line from your list:

"I going to limit the options down to about 15 to 25 to make it easier on the guys at the IMDB to post this as a poll."

That way it won't appear on the Live poll were it isn't really necessary.

Done. But I had finally finally figured out how the BonaFideBoss’s suggestion of Carmen stealing the infinity Gauntlet. Involves a character that was not in the Avengers: Infinity War movie but was in the original infinity war comics and was the one who left with the infinity gauntlet, Adam Warlock, the true owner of the Soul Stone. And oddly enough, and out of the timeline order of the sequel series of the comics, the cocoon he later gets trapped in and was later collected by the collector was shown the Collector’s museum in the movie.

@dgranger 

Please update the discussion link.

I'm not sure if this is happening to all y'all, but GetSatisfaction links were supposed to redirect to our new community forum, unfortunately, the link on your poll couldn't.

So, could you please fix it. Thank you.

Thanks for the notice. Corrected. Now I have to ask for a repush which I normally don’t do when a poll goes live, but I did say to go here for answers.

btw, how did you like two of the options you had suggested got 5 votes already before the repush request?

Tbh, they sound nothing like what I suggested, lol.

The thing you said about the briefcase in 'Pulp Fiction' (I just read them, never seen this thread after I first commented), "The briefcase can’t simply disappear because it was seen at the beginning of the film that Vincent and Jules returning the case to Marcellus."

Well, maybe Carmen stole whatever was inside the briefcase, not the whole briefcase, or maybe she did steal the whole briefcase and switched it with another similar looking briefcase.

But it's okay. Your theories are much more interesting, I guess. :)
