Following last week’s announcement that the Walt Disney Company has purchased Lucasfilm for over 4 billion dollars and scheduled Star Wars Episode VII for release in 2015, the Internet has been in a flurry of speculation over the future of the saga. Far be it from us not to jump on the bandwagon.
Even more than questioning where the story is supposed to go in the future, everybody seems to be talking about who will direct the next episode of the franchise, given that George Lucas himself is reportedly leaving Star Wars behind (to serve merely as a consultant on Episode VII). Rather than offer any actual suggestions here, let’s take a look at some possible contenders in true Flickchart fashion: two at a time.
This Saturday (March 31st), Netflix will be adding two great new movies/shows to their Instant Watch service.
There’s nothing quite like it. I don’t know if it’s necessarily good, but Rango is always a unique and interesting watch.
I’m loving this trend of FX shows becoming available to stream on Netflix (sadly, not Justified though). On top of great shows like Archer, Louie, The League and Terriers, we now get the vastly underrated Lights Out to watch. This boxing series is a must watch!
Stop back next Monday to see the relatively strong list of new movies on Netflix Instant available starting April 1st!
Over 115,000 film fans worldwide have been adding all the movies they’ve seen from the year onto their Flickcharts and pitting them head-to-head against the best movies of all time. The following list is the product of those rankings – generating a combined list of the best movies of 2011 that are ranked the highest by each and every Flickchart user.
Don’t forget too that once you’re there, you can further filter the list to get the best of 2011 combined with any of your favorite actors, directors, genres, and franchises. If they seem in need of rearrangement, you can also rank any of these combinations and make sure the 2011 films you’ve seen are in just the right order on your list. Remember, if you watched and ranked these movies on your Flickchart, you helped to create this list! The higher your favorites of 2011 are on your list, the more you’ll be influencing their positions. If you haven’t yet, be sure to rank your favorites of 2011 to make changes to this list for the future!
You can expect some major new features to arrive early in 2012, so keep your eyes peeled for some amazing things yet to come for Flickchart!
