Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman debuted in Action Comics #1 in the summer of 1938. An instant sensation, Superman was quickly brought to radio in 1940 and hit the screen in 1941. With Man of Steel on the horizon, every movie and geek culture website on the Internet has reflected on his past movie adventures. What separates Flickchart from all the others is that our ranked lists aren’t arbitrarily pieced together by a single writer, or even a select editorial team. Our empirical data comes from each and every Flickchart user, so we’re pretty confident that our list of the Best Superman Movies is the most accurate. Here are the top ten.
Star Trek Into Darkness is just around the corner, but for anyone who wants a little more Spock (or two) in their life, check out this great video featuring a reunion between the two Spock actors, Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy, after their work together in Star Trek.
This commercial for Audi features Nimoy trouncing Quinto at a game of virtual 3D chess, but when the two decide to get together for a round of golf, Quinto’s spiffy Audi S7 trounces Nimoy’s Mercedes. This video is full of great Trek moments, and nods to Nimoy’s work in general. Watch it below.
Quinto will beam back into theaters as Spock in Star Trek Into Darkness May 17.
I took an unwanted hiatus last week due to lack of internet and I would like to apologize for leaving you in the lurch. I’m sure you were just aimlessly wandering the lobby of your local cineplex, having no idea what movie to watch. “Should I go see an inferior remake in Evil Dead or an apparent cash grab in Jurassic Park 3D?” You more than likely asked random passers-by. Well never fear, I have returned to break down the trailers and help guide you to your next favorite movie like a mother duck leading her chicks across a busy street.
It can be tough deciding what movie to watch. We all have limited time and resources and can’t be expected to watch every new movie that gets shoved into theaters. With this series I am hoping to help lead you through the often rocky cinematic landscape to avoid the duds and misfires that can soil one’s love for the theater going experience. I will take what I assume will be the top 2 highest-grossing new releases, dissect their trailers, and then summarize who I think should see which movie. I’m not here to say which one will be better. I’m here to help you decide which will be better for you.
Next year will see the 75th anniversary of one of the all-time great films, The Wizard of Oz. Few films have had the impact or importance. When Dorothy opened up her Kansas farmhouse door to the world of Oz, she might have well have opened up the world of cinema to color films in a big way. The Wizard of Oz also told a fantasy story, even a children’s story, in a darker and much more intricate way than almost any film prior.
There have been several follow-ups or spin-offs to L. Frank Baum’s world, most notably Sidney Lumet’s musical The Wiz and the incredibly dark unofficial sequel, Disney’s Return to Oz. No film yet has had quite the spectacle, cast, or pedigree behind a Wizard of Oz follow-up as Oz: The Great and Powerful has. Not only is Disney basically banking on this being their next Alice in Wonderland, but the film is by Evil Dead and Spider-Man franchise director Sam Raimi, and features a huge cast that includes Mila Kunis, Zach Braff, and former Oscar nominees James Franco, Michelle Williams and former winner Rachel Weisz.
After a rough few years for Disney, with both animation projects and live-action films not going as planned, Disney has quite a lot riding on Oz: The Great and Powerful, their first live-action film since John Carter bombed. Before checking out Disney’s latest attempt at live-action greatness, and the prequel to one of cinema’s most famous stories, maybe check out some of these under-ranked films from the stars of Oz: The Great and Powerful.
