Nice try jpg 8dc920bd featured Movies/TV The Vikies: Nominees for the "Nice Try" Award

Since this is our inaugural year for The Vikies, we're taking a more in-depth look at each category and nominee to help give you some context for the awards.As stated in the original post, The "Nice Try" Award is presented to the actor or actress this year who really thought they were going to win an Oscar. Whether they shaved, grew a beard, lost a ton of weight, used a funny accent, some combination of those elements, or whatever else they may have tried, it was all in vain.

There's nothing worse than hearing the title of a film spoken by a character in said film. Sure, there are clever ways to do it, but almost every film errs on the side of big, presentational delivery, which makes the use of this convention so much worse. The only way to stop filmmakers doing this is to start penalizing them for it, so from now on, a film should end when the title is spoken. Here's a video of what that might look like...

Screen shot 2016 02 05 at 10 26 30 am png 89f7e090 featured Movies/TV Lady Ghostbusters Get Lady Ghostbuster LEGOs Too

We already told you about how the lady Ghostbusters are getting their own line of action figures, but they're getting LEGO sets as well, and LEGO has released official pics of the new set via Twitter. There is a minor spoiler, provided you get up in arms about shit like that, in which case I am forced to tell you "spoilers ahead" rather than "get your priorities straight."

Magictreehousecollection1 png 83e95d77 featured Books Magic Tree House Series Headed to the Big Screen

If you have children of your own or were perhaps, gasp, born sometime in the late 80s or 90s, you're likely familiar with Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series. Falling into that first camp myself, I only found out about these books after my oldest daughter began reading them, and I must admit, they're halfway decent adventure yarns with some interesting information about history. The film rights to the books have now been acquired by Lionsgate, so get excited. Or don't. Either way is fine by me.

Ppz jpg 7d095d39 featured Movies/TV Five Better Movies than 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' for You to Watch Instead this Weekend

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies looks like... well, it looks bad. Maybe not a hot pile of horse shit, but definitely not good. So rather than go see it just to have something to do on Saturday night, stay home and watch any one of these five movies featuring cast and/or crew members from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

It's a known fact that movie studios have nothing but contempt for the audience. Sure, they love the common man for forking over his hard earned money every weekend, but in actuality, they think that Americans are the stupidest creatures on Earth. I'm not saying there isn't a kernel of truth in that nugget, but the fact that they continue to market to us as if we're all mouth breathing simpletons makes it nigh impossible to see things from their perspective.

Between Bernie, Don, and Hill, there's not exactly a shortage of polarizing presidential candidates. Many folks have claimed that Trump is a blasphemous sociopath, that Bernie is an nutty socialist, and that Hillary is a downright criminal, but today, none of that is important.

Trailer better than movie jpg 71b3c464 featured Movies/TV The Vikies: Nominees for Trailers that were Better than the Movie

Since this is our inaugural year for The Vikies, we're taking a more in-depth look at each category and nominee to help give you some context for the awards. There's nothing worse than seeing a killer trailer for a movie and then showing up to see the film and being woefully disappointed that the finished product was nowhere near as good as the trailer. This year had a number of contenders for this coveted prize, but these five stood high above the others thanks to their commitment to mediocrity.

I was under the impression that this was the third trailer for Zoolander 2, but it might only be the second. I don't know, it's got a ton of recycled gags from the other trailer(s), so it's hard for me to tell. I'm eager to see this, I think I'm just done seeing trailers for it at this point. Bring on the film. And more Kristen Wiig. Guaranteed, she's the best thing about this movie.

The dark knight rises hd wallpapers desktop backgrounds latest 2012 batman symbol wallpapers jpg f3d89a51 featured Original Articles The Specter of Death Hanging Over Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy

When I got home from work yesterday, I had this urge to watch The Dark Knight Rises. I pressed play on the Blu-ray and that feeling hit me again. It hits me every time I watch this film. It's this black pit in my stomach that opens up whenever I even think about this film. There's death surrounding it. It's not the film's fault, nor is it the filmmakers' fault, but The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are closely associated with tragic death, and that has almost completely ruined these films for me.

If you're a parent, the words "new Ice Age sequel" will send shivers down your spine. Ice Age was a fine animated film. It was different enough and mildly entertaining, but not exactly what I would call franchise worthy. Nevertheless we trudge on with these films, which have honestly gotten worse with each successive entry, thanks to Ice Age: Collision Course this summer.

I just don't get the Fast and Furious movies. I get their appeal. Lord, do I ever get their appeal, but I personally don't get caught up in them. What started as a meatheaded remake of Point Break turned into Multi-Million Dollar Semi-Annual Demolition Derby. I know many learned doctors and friends who are totally into the machismo of it all, and those guys are gonna be pumped when they find out that there will be at least ten films in the franchise by the time all is said and done.
