Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

This is a toughie. In terms of looks, both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s faces remind me of between forty and fifty of my least-favorite classmates during

Matt Damon Explains the Story Behind His Greatest Cameo Ever

If you're a fan of Matt Damon and Matt Damon-starring movies, then you're most likely also a fan of Matt Damon's cameos. See, Matt Damon is fond of cameos. He may be one of the biggest movie stars in the world -- leading major hits like The Martian and this week's Jason Bourne -- but he's also a master at the bit part, the blink-and-you-miss-him role that often finds itself tucked into the corner of some random movie or TV show, just waiting to surprise you. Our favorite all-time Matt Damon cameo might be the only thing you actually remember about the 2004 teen sex comedy EuroTrip, about a bunch of high school friends who go on a trip to Europe after one of them is dumped by his girlfriend. But it's the scene where poor Scotty is dumped that stands out...

Beyond Clueless review: The '90s teen movie gets deconstructed

Beyond Clueless review: The '90s teen movie gets deconstructed
Director: Charlie Lyne; Starring: Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Devon Sawa, Seth Green, Jessica Alba, Scott Mechlowicz, Freddie Prinze Jr, Running time: 89 mins; Certificate: 15

A densely-packed dive into the world of teen movies from '90s to present, documentary Beyond Clueless will hit all the right notes for those with an affinity for Cher Horowitz, Cady Heron and their spiritual brothers and sisters.

The Kickstarter-backed project, directed by Ultra Culture founder Charlie Lyne, ditches the conventional talking heads approach to get under the skin of the genre and examine how they relate to the adolescent audiences who hoover them up.

Narrating it all is Fairuza Balk, star of '90s favourite The Craft, lending her husky tones to guide us through a maze of high school, raging hormones and rites of passage tales. Footage from north of 200 films are included, with Lyne spreading into subgenres like horror (Idle Hands,

Sdcc '14: Banner For Neill Blomkamp’s New Film Chappie

In 2009, everyone took notice of Neill Blomkamp's talents when District 9 became the sleeper hit of the summer. Its $210M revenue easily surpassed the film's meager $30M budget. Interest in his next project reached a feverish pitch. That project was the 2013 film Elysium, which starred Matt Damon ("EuroTrip"). It pulled in $286M at the worldwide box office against a budget of $115 million (minus marketing costs). In 2015, we'll get to see his next offering. It will be Chappie, here's the official tagline: "After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot." It stars: Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley.

7 footballers who tried to act: Cantona, Collymore... and Ally McCoist

7 footballers who tried to act: Cantona, Collymore... and Ally McCoist
The worlds of football and cinema frequently collide, and judging by the number of great sportsmen who've tried their hand at acting, it's clear that Hollywood holds a strong allure for the professional athlete.

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup about to get underway, Digital Spy takes a look at a handful of actors who've made it to the big screen.

1. Pelé (Escape to Victory)

Arguably the greatest footballer of all time, Pelé lined up alongside fellow icons Bobby More and Ossie Ardiles (and a host of Ipswich Town greats!) in this inspiring blend of Great Escape-style war flick and underdog sports story.

A firm Bank Holiday favourite, Escape to Victory also boasts a starting eleven containing Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone. They don't make them like this anymore.

2. Vinnie Jones (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels)

After retiring from the beautiful game, Wimbledon hardman Vinnie Jones established a second career for himself.

'EuroTrip' 10th Anniversary: Cast reveals 10 things you might not know about the movie

'EuroTrip' 10th Anniversary: Cast reveals 10 things you might not know about the movie
It has been ten years since EuroTrip, riding the raunchy teen comedy revival of the late ’90s and early naughts, burst into theaters and exposed an entire generation of teens to a beach full of dangling male genitalia. And even a decade later, those involved with the cult classic are still proud of it — every sex organ included.

At least, that was the vibe taken away from the audience Wednesday night in Hollywood, where cast members Scott Mechlowicz (“Scotty”), Jacob Pitts (“Cooper”), Michelle Trachtenberg (“Jenny”), Travis Wester (“Jamie”) joined producers Jeff Schaffer, Alec Berg, and David Mandel and several others for a Q&A session.

10th anniversary of 'Eurotrip': Celebrate with GIFs of Kristin Kreuk, Michelle Trachtenberg, Matt Damon, Fred Armisen and more

Time for a special edition of Throwback Thursday!

In honor of "Eurotrip's" 10th anniversary on Thursday (Feb. 20), we rounded up GIFs from the cult classic movie starring some of the biggest names on TV and in movies today. Yeah, it's been 10 years. Commence feeling old now.

Remember that time a tatted up and pierced Matt Damon sang a song about doing Kristin Kreuk behind her boyfriend's back at his own graduation party? Ouch. If Scotty didn't know before, he certainly knows by now:

Seriously, best song ever (unless you were Scotty, then it was probably the worst song you had ever heard in your entire life):

And remember that time Michelle Trachtenberg had to resort to flashing cars to try and get a ride for her and her friends?

And then she unknowingly almost gave all the men on the nude beach a free show, and ended up

Oscars Postponed Pleasures (?)

[Here is guest columnist Matthew Eng to remind us of four films we may have forgotten. But they'll be back - Nathaniel R]

Postponements happen every year to a few among the many films on Oscar’s selective radar, to movies whose prospects look both bright and, well, bleak. It very nearly happened to Wolf of Wall Street, but for the skilled hands of Thelma Schoonmaker, who rescued the film from both a rumored four-hour running time and a dreaded Nc-17. In cleaning up its act, though the film is still dirty, Wolf pushed Chris Pine’s Jack Ryan reboot Shadow Recruit out of its prime Christmas release date, but I’d wager that that project’s Oscar chances were already on the slim side. Let’s take a look back (and forward) at the four deferred features that tried to make it in time this year in order to win Oscar’s attention.

Forest of the Damned aka Demonic (2005) Review

Written by Kevin Scott,

I stumbled across this one under the name Demonic on Netflix instant streaming just a few days ago. I was unaware of the more catchy title “Forest of the Damned” until after I had already seen the film. I like “Forest of the Damned” better. It’s makes the film stand out from the nameless masses of one word horror film titles, and classes it up a bit if you ask me.

It’s set in the United Kingdom, and centers around a road trip of an unlikely group. There’s the somewhat awkward but nice guy who just bought the van that’s a stretch from the shaggin’ wagons that have defined vans in horror movies in the past. It’s a Volkswagen, but we are in Europe. They tend to be more fuel efficiency conscience than Americans, so I didn’t think anything of it.

Why I Love … Adam Schlesinger's movie pop songs

Songs written for film's fictional pop stars typically miss the mark, but Schlesinger has shown it's possible to hit the right note

• More from the Why I Love ... series

You couldn't make Miley Cyrus up; Madonna, Britney and Divine did it for you. Pop music parodies itself all the time, but film finds it tricky. On the surface, film's fictional pop stars are in key with their real-world counterparts: they're shallow and self-centred, often a bit dim, and always image conscious. It's when it comes to the songs that the fiction falls flat. I can't buy Matt Damon as a sneering punk bro in Eurotrip (2004). It's not because of the fake piercings, or his horrible lip-synching, but because the song was written for the film and sounds like it. It gets skate-punk nearly right, so we nearly believe the performance. Nearly enjoy it, too.

Not many songwriters can write a

James Wans House of Horror Becomes Demonic

The name James Wan has gained an enormous amount of cache in the horror community in the past few years mostly thanks to terrific horror offerings such as 'Insidious' and 'The Conjuring'. So we've all been looking forward to his newly produced genre effort formerly known as 'House of Horror'. It's been months since we've heard anything from the project which has now reportedly moved into post-production and even more importantly has had a title change. 'Demonic' is the new heading to this Wan presented feature from director Will Canon and scribe Max La Bella. The flick stars Maria Bello ('The Dark'), Frank Grillo ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Cody Horn ('End of Watch'), Scott Mechlowicz ('Eurotrip'), Aaron Yoo, Megan Park and Dustin Milligan ('Shark Night'). Hopefully we'll have a release date on this real soon....

Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead, Matt Damon: 5 best surprise movie cameos

Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead, Matt Damon: 5 best surprise movie cameos
Ever since film journalism migrated to online, it's been very tricky for movie fans to walk into the cinema completely spoiler free. Your favourite blockbuster will be dissected from all angles weeks, months and sometimes years before it actually hits cinemas.

However, Hollywood is often still able to maintain some surprises when it comes to secret cameos. Most recently, Bruce Campbell memorably brought back Ash Williams for the Evil Dead remake's post-credits sting and Hugh Jackman turned up in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it X-Men cameo.

With Evil Dead arriving on DVD and Blu-ray on August 12, Digital Spy takes a look back at 5 memorable surprise movie cameos.

Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead)

This year's Fede Alvarez-directed remake branched off from Sam Raimi's initial trilogy but the post-credits appearance of Campbell, uttering the immortal line "Groovy", is a tantalising tease for what might happen in future Evil Dead films. Watch his cameo -

Matt Damon Talks Elysium, Which Actor Has Made Him Laugh the Most on a Movie Set, What He Collects, Eurotrip, and More

Opening this weekend is director Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium. For those unfamiliar, the story takes place in 2159, and two classes of people are divided: the wealthy live on a man-made space station called Elysium, while the rest of the humans inhabit an overpopulated and ruined Earth. Matt Damon plays a desperate man who must reach Elysium in order to find a cure that will save his life. The film also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Wagner Moura, Diego Luna and William Fichtner. The other day I landed a video interview with Matt Damon. He talked about how the world of Elysium feels real, Blomkamp's directorial process, how the finished cut of Elysium compares to what he was pitched, what he collects, who has made him laugh the most on set, and if it's true that he was cast because Blomkamp wanted his character from Eurotrip. Hit the jump to watch.
