Thirteen movies, eight years, one wholly incontrovertible ranking.
Everyone loves ranking things. Books, restaurants, vacations, sex partners — we all love a good ranked list that puts things (or people) in their place ahead of or behind other things (or people). It may not offer much room for serious and deep critiques, but it’s a fun way to see where other people’s opinions stand against the objective truth of your own.
Honestly, we really thought someone would have done this with the Marvel Cinematic Universe by now. It seems like a no-brainer, but after nearly two minutes of googling on AskJeeves.com we were forced to acknowledge that no one else had ranked these thirteen movies. So it’s up to us to fill that void.
It probably goes without saying, but we’re only including the actual McU films here meaning no X-Men, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Punisher, Blade »

There have been a bunch of bad superhero movies, but this one transcends bad. 41. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” A totally chaotic stir fry of nonsense that tells the »

F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film is considered the first true vampire film ever made. It follows a young woman’s supernatural quest to not only save her true love’s soul, but in fact the entire world from the shadow of infernal darkness.
Director David Lee Fisher (“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”) is creating a remix of the original film with a mixture of live-action combined with colorized digital backgrounds recreated from the original film.

Last weekend Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice saw a 69% second weekend drop in the face of no new competition from the major studios, yet it still retained the #1 position at the box office by a wide margin. This week the superhero slugfest may have a tougher fight on its hands as Melissa McCarthy enters the ring with her newest comedy The Boss. Meanwhile, Stx is targeting the attention of gamers with the intense, first person actioner Hardcore Henry and Fox Searchlight has bumped up the release of Demolition from an estimated 550 theaters to over 850 theaters this weekend. At the top, Batman v Superman is hoping to bounce back this weekend. In an attempt to determine what that may look like, the first number to consider is the average, 47.5% drop for film's in their third weekend that opened in over 3,700 theaters and scored a "B" CinemaScore. That said, things could also go the other direction, »
