Unlike other websites, our Top Ten lists are created from the empirical data of our global rankings.
It seems admittedly odd to have a Top Ten list from a series with only twelve movies, but with Star Trek Into Darkness currently in theaters, we thought this would be a good time to see how the Flickchart community has ranked the Star Trek series to date.
I asked some of my fellow Flickcharters for random Matchup of the Day suggestions, and I ended up with these basketball comedies (in recognition of March Madness)
I’m not much into competitive athletics myself, but I can appreciate a decent sports flick if I’m in the right mood. This was my first viewing of both films. While there’s the obvious basketball connection, I think there might also be some philosophical similarities as well. In White Men Can’t Jump, there are two lessons that are repeated throughout:
#1 Sometimes when you win, you actually lose (and vice versa).
#2 There’s a difference between listening and hearing. Read the rest of this entry »
A (not so) long time ago, in a galaxy (not so) far, far away…
It is a period of intergalactically-themed humor. A group of friends, striking at George Lucas‘s fortified base, have launched an attempt to steal a copy of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace before its 1999 release date.
Meanwhile, two British nerds, fresh from attending their first ComicCon, attempt to help a drug-addled alien with the voice of Seth Rogen escape our planet.
They are loving and raucous odes to science fiction fandom, locked in deadly combat. Two films will enter, one will leave. Even now, the first bell rings, and the epic battle of Paul vs. Fanboys is under way… Read the rest of this entry »
It’s hard to believe that this year marks the sixteen year anniversary of the original Scream’s release and that it has been eleven years since the final film in the trilogy, Scream 3 was released. Well now the film series that single-handedly revitalized the teen horror film genre and became one of the greatest film parodies of all time, returns with Scream 4. The three main protagonists of the film will be returning with David Arquette and Courteney Cox playing the couple Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, respectively and Neve Campbell reprising her role as Sidney Prescott. But with the beginning of a supposed new trilogy, the Ghostface Killer is gonna need some new blood to attack. So to introduce yourself to this new cast of potential victims, here are some under-ranked films from the cast of Scream 4.
The 2009 hit film Star Trek garnered many fans, as it became a big hit at the box office. But many new fans may not have realized that it was not the first movie in a new franchise, but rather the eleventh film in a franchise that celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. Tasked with revitalizing a venerable franchise that was on life support (Star Trek: Enterprise, the franchise’s fifth television series, had been canceled six years previously, and the tenth film, Star Trek: Nemesis, was a critical and box office dud in 2002), Star Trek actually faced a similar situation encountered by another film 27 years earlier. In many ways, the films are quite similar, and yet, in others, they are diametric opposites; as such, they become, as Mr. Spock might say, fascinating mirrors for each other. Join us as Reel Rumbles heads to the Final Frontier for a battle of galactic proportions: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan vs. Star Trek.
