Your Thoughts

We have had some excellent trailers uploaded in the COW's Trailers Competition that runs through the end of 2009. And we'd like to hear what you think of them. There have been over 100 trailers entered so far, and they span the gamut from drama to science fiction, horror to documentaries, westerns to comedy, and just about anything else you might imagine. There are truly some very worthwhile trailers that have been entered. The Top 10 is really heating up but many of the others are also deserving of your time, interest and vote, and we are proud that the COW is home to so many talented people that are creating what is clearly a powerful collection of stories and imagery.

So, tell us your favorites and give us your reasons that you think so. On January 15, 2010 we will give $500 to the one that we feel has taken the time to add the most articulate and insightful comment on one of our trailer entries.

Tell us what you like or don't, and why. And do it before year's end. But in the spirit of the COW, please make it constructive as we will disqualify and remove mean-spirited flames and slams. Hey, it is the COW, isn't it?
