This year, we saw Earth’s Mightiest Heroes come together for the first time ever. The legend of a man who dresses up like a bat came to an end. We watched a group of friends fall apart after acquiring strange abilities from a hole in the ground. The world watched in horror as children from the 12 Districts of Panem stabbed, choked and poisoned each other to death. This is my list of the top 10 best films of 2012! [Read more...]
Creating a list of worst 10 films sounds easier than creating a 10 most disappointing films of the year. For one thing a person can immediately refer to the most rotten movies on Rotten Tomatoes. Besides it be way too easy to add a film like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Resident Evil 5, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Total Recall, Battleship and Playing for Keeps type of films on the list, so why even bother creating a list like that. When I say disappointing, I mean it just did not live up to the hype, predecessors, and/or genre. We get so many screenings, and pay for so many tickets, but all in all, it’s just impossible to see every single movie in a year. But not every movie we see will be a guaranteed hit. So these are my top ten films that were the most disappointing. Hit the jump to see them all. [Read more...]
The Buzz is a feature in which we usually round up the Top 3 most-buzzed-about movie/TV stories of the week (in more-or-less chronological order). This week however, we got a little behind, so we instead are providing a nice link dump of several of the top stories that got people talking this week. Enjoy.
When it was announced late last year that The Dark Knight Rises would take place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, I wrote about how such news lent itself to tremendous viral marketing and hype-generating opportunities, primarily in the form of prequel comics that could tell stories of events that took place between the films. While that never materialized the way I hoped, DC Comics just announced the launch of a new app that does indeed offer a “prologue” comic to the film. But there’s a catch. Hit the jump to find out more.
We all do it. We put on our headphones, play a favorite track and walk down the street pretending that it’s the soundtrack to our lives. Sometimes, if we’re lucky, the beat even syncs with our footsteps. Featuring over 2-hours of new and original music, The Dark Knight Rises Z+ Augmented Soundtrack Experience, turns your world into Gotham City! More details after the jump. [Read more...]
