By: Erik Davis on November 25, 2009 at 11:45AM Comments (3)

'Watchmen'Seeing as it’s Thanksgiving and all, it’s only right that we look back over 2009 and pick out a few movies that we’re thankful for. Ya know, films that moved us, shook us or opened up our minds to new, creative, original ideas. The sort of movies you’ll watch again, or tell your friends to watch...


The Five: People We'd Like to See Star in Future 'Twilight' Installments

By: Erik Davis on November 19, 2009 at 11:47AM Comments (3)

Megan Fox and Robert De NiroFrom what I gather, there are over 20 brand new characters introduced in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, the final book (and film adaptation) in Stephenie Meyer's series. Since Eclipse is already filming and probably not adding too many more cast members, we'll concentrate more on the final book...


The Five: Movies You Have to Watch on Halloween

By: Erik Davis on October 29, 2009 at 1:03PM Comments (4)

"Halloween"It's that time of the year again, folks. Time for the pumpkins, the costumes, the parties, the door-to-door candy and the scary movies. Halloween was always one of my favorite holidays because there's never any pressure to buy gifts or fight your way through a crowded department store while waiting on...


The Five: Vampires We’d Want to Date

By: Erik Davis on October 23, 2009 at 9:28AM Comments (15)

Robert Pattinson as Edward CullenLet’s face it: vampires are a risky investment, in terms of someone you’d want to date. Yeah, sure, out of your standard movie monsters, vampires do tend to be the most sensual and romantic (who doesn’t like a little nibble on the neck?), but then you have to deal with the whole biting thing, sharp fangs and...


Friday Five: Actresses Who Should Play Catwoman

By: Erik Davis on August 28, 2009 at 2:48PM Comments (3)

Angelina Jolie and Eva GreenEarlier this week there was a rumor going around that Megan Fox had landed the role of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's next Batman film. Obviously this isn't true, because they haven't even written the script for that film, let alone begun casting it – and so we've decided to throw out our recommendations for the role of Catwoman...


Friday Five: Michael Jackson's Greatest Music Videos

By: Erik Davis on June 26, 2009 at 12:28PM Comments (2)

Though it may not seem movie related, Michael Jackson's music videos were always a cinematic event. Growing up in the 1980s and '90s, I'll always remember huddling around the television for the MTV premiere of another one of Jackson's event-style music videos/mini-movies – all of which took the art form to an entirely different (and historic) level. Throughout his career,...


Friday Five: Girls Who Could Star in the 'Footloose' Remake

By: Erik Davis on May 29, 2009 at 5:11PM Comments (3)

Now that Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford has officially replaced Zac Efron as the lead in the planned (but not-so-anticipated-for-nostalgic-reasons) Footloose remake, it's time to find him a leading lady. In the original Footloose (1984), Lori Singer played Ariel, daughter of the town Reverend and somewhat of a loose canon. She's wild, likes to play rough and isn't afraid to break a...


Friday Five: Potential Future Female Ghostbusters

By: Erik Davis on May 22, 2009 at 12:43PM Comments

Earlier this week Dab Aykroyd said that he’d like for the new Ghostbusters sequel to feature the first-ever female Ghostbusters alongside the "new recruits" and the old veterans. Aykroyd listed Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku as two ladies he thinks are "amazing," and the former already has a head start as she voices one of the characters in the new Ghostbusters video...

While we await the next Iron Man sequel to hit theaters next year, Marvel is slowly putting together their next few franchises – all of which (they hope) will turn out successful and combine to churn out one incredible, star-studded Avengers movie in 2012. The First Avenger: Captain America (due in theaters on July 22, 2011) is one of those films, and there’s a whole bunch of buzz...

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and in honor of this spectacular day for hardworking moms everywhere, we here at Fandango put up a list of the sexiest and scariest movie moms in contemporary cinema (ie: last thirty years) that was entirely created by you.

Friday Five: Folks We'd Like to See Hook Up on the Big Screen

By: Erik Davis on April 10, 2009 at 3:13PM Comments (1)

Chemistry between actors is a tough thing to find, especially when they’re asked to play fictional lovers. To get an idea, simply imagine being asked to make out with a dude or dudette who you’ve never even met – and, furthermore, imagine having to pretend you're married. Yup, not an easy task, and either the spark is there or it isn’t. While the majority of movie...

Are you on Twitter yet? In the past few months, Twitter – which is an online social network devoted entirely to 140-character bloggish updates – has blown up, battling both Facebook and MySpace for a spot at the top of the social networking food chain. Now that Twitter is the hot new go-to thing for the young and the hip, celebrities have latched on as a way to become more personal...

By: Erik Davis on March 20, 2009 at 3:07PM Comments

The Green Lantern movie is causing quite the stir online this week, with news that it's heading into production this September with Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) in the director's chair. Word on the street has Star Trek's Chris Pine at the top of the studio’s wish list to play the superhero, but here are five more guys who could easily suit up for the role:1. Ryan Reynolds...
