We love movies and we especially love movies with great ensemble casts. There's nothing better than seeing our favorite actors and actresses sharing screen time with one another, feeding off of each others' performances and upping each others' game. With a decent script and the right director, a great ensemble cast can create cinematic gold.
It's because of our love for movies with great ensemble casts that we are eagerly anticipating writer-director Martin McDonagh's (In Bruges) new black comedy, Seven Psychopaths. The plot is a bit out there, but with a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, we're sure to be treated to some combustible onscreen chemistry. Seven Psychopaths doesn't come out until next week, so help us pass the time until its release by rating the Top 10 Great Ensembles in Good Movies.

The ReelzChannel 100 began when we asked Leonard Maltin for his favorite Hidden Gems of the decade. His list led the web team into a general discussion about the best movies of the decade and — after no small amount of debate, arguing, and (we're not proud to say) some petty name-calling — we decided we'd better bring it to an end with a company-wide vote. Then it was just a matter of tallying up the votes and hoping for the best. Lucky for us, ReelzChannel is filled with a staff ranging from movie lovers to movie fanatics. What turned out isn't what you'll find on a critic's best of list — instead it's what movie fans really enjoyed.
In day seven of the ReelzChannel 100, we highlight the 10 Biggest Movie Disappointments of the Decade. Posted 12.29.09 by reelz
Pop Eater writes that Jennifer Esposito plans to tie the knot with Mark Philippoussis, the Australian tennis star who made the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open during his career.
An interesting choice, considering Philippoussis appeared on NBC's reality show The Age of Love two summers ago, where he selected the "right woman" (Amanda Salinas) from a baker's dozen of contestants. Also, Esposito, at 36, is four years older than Philippoussis and was previously married to Bradley Cooper. A representative told People that the two are "happily engaged and enjoying their time together."
Esposito is arguably most famous for her role in the Oscar-winning drama Crash, and she has also starred in the TV shows Samantha Who? and Rescue Me. Posted 10.27.09 by reelz
Actor Liam Neeson continues along the upward trajectory his career has been on since Taken surprised everyone at the box office. He recently wrapped photography on Clash of the Titans, in which he plays Zeus, and is currently filming the big-screen adaptation of the classic The A-Team TV show, in which he will portray the team's leader, Hannibal.
Neeson's most recent gig, according to Variety has him starring alongside Russell Crowe in writer-director Paul Haggis' latest film, The Next Three Days.
In Days, an adaptation of the 2008 French film Pour Elle, Crowe plays a teacher whose wife (Elizabeth Banks) has been falsely incarcerated for a murder she didn't commit. Desperate to break his wife out of prison before she can commit suicide, Crowe's character elicits the aid of an ex-con (Neeson) who is an expert on prison breaks.
Days also stars Brian Bennehy, Olivia Wilde, Daniel Stern, Aisha Hinds, and The RZA. Posted 10.05.09 by BrentJS
