By now you’re probably sick to death of top ten lists. After all, this is that time of year where every critic and pundit doles out their top ten movies of the year list – explaining why this film ranked higher or lower than that film – and all you get to do is sit there and take it all in. Well, we’re changing that up here at Fandango, and this year we want to know what your top ten of 2010 looks like.
Earlier, we posted a couple lists of the year's box office turkeys, and worst user-reviewed films. But since it's Thanksgiving, a holiday in which we're supposed to be thankful for the people in our lives and the rewards we've received over the past year, I thought it might be fun to start a discussion with you Fandango readers and talk about which 2010 films we're actually thankful for.
As we approach the end of the year, you're going to begin to see all those end-of-year lists, featuring the best films, the worst films and everything in between. The first buzzed-about end-of-year list looks to have made its way online via Forbes, who absolutely love to crunch those box office numbers. And since its Thanksgiving week, said list just happens...
Edgar Wright’s frenetic, highly stylized take on the graphic novel stars Michael Cera as a guy who has to battle seven of his new girlfriend’s exes. Also new are Grown Ups and Charlie St. Cloud.
Was it a marketing fail, Michael Cera backlash, or just that people didn’t know what the heck Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was all about? If you missed it at theaters (or loved it so much you want to revisit it), now’s your chance to get it on Blu-ray.
Now that we’re inching our way closer to September (and the beginning of another school year – boo!), it’s time for everyone to start churning out their summer-related movie lists, examining which films got it right, which films got it wrong, and which films, well, didn’t really get it at all. One of the things I’m most interested in exploring...
It’s not hard to see that the action stylings of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World were inspired somewhat by The Matrix. In fact, The Matrix paved the way for a lot of the action films of the past decade – what with its super slo-mo fight scenes mixed with fantastical leaps, kicks and punches. Some of the greatest assets of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World are...
Usually this is the spot where I’d ask you to rate the box office winner, which, in this case, would be The Expendables. In a weekend packed full of fun box office battles, Sly Stallone and the rest of his aging action stars managed to pull in the most amount of money, blasting through theaters with $35 million over the three days. Julia Roberts proved she still has what it takes...
This is it! This is the weekend we’ve all been waiting for! (Okay, maybe not all of us. Some of us. Can I say some of us?) As I said earlier in the week, this particular weekend is one so packed with material for everyone that the three movies opening are going to literally battle one another to the death, with the winner just barely making it out alive.
Austin’s ultra-cool Alamo Drafthouse movie theater has teamed up with Universal Studios to create a special edition poster for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. The poster will be on sale tonight at a special screening and a very limited number...
This weekend’s release of finds Michael Cera in the role of Scott Pilgrim, a hipster-ish slacker from Toronto who falls in love with the mysterious Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and then must defeat her seven evil ex's in order to truly win her heart (or so he thinks).
I know I’ve talked about big weekends at the summer box office before, but this upcoming weekend is definitely one of the biggest of 2010. Not so much because the films are these giant epic blockbusters or anything, but moreso because we have three films all doing battle for a similar audience.
Every Comic-Con produces a number of success stories. Sometimes you can predict which films (and panels) will do better than others ahead of time, and sometimes the buzz will come as a surprise. Though 2010 was relatively tame in terms of any jaw-dropping surprises (or announcements), some folks showed up with their big guns, ready to wow us...
Brad Pitt was a no-show, but Angelina Jolie made it to the Con to promote Salt. Pitt's costars from Megamind all showed up, as did the casts of Tron, The Expendables, Scott Pilgrim and more...catch up on the panels in Hall H.
By now you’ve probably seen at least one trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and at this point you’re probably thinking that it looks pretty cool, though you might not understand exactly what’s going on. With multiple video game references, tons of different cast members, and some extremely hyper-stylized action sequences, I could see how...
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
