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 four of the ReelzChannel 100, we highlight the Top 10 Horror Movies of the Decade. Posted 12.28.09 by reelz
Halloween is the time of year when horror movies are dusted off, rented from a video store, or placed in the queue for some late-night, pitch-dark viewing. But there are scary movies and then there are scary movies.

Spider-Man 3 coasted to another easy weekend box office victory, hauling in $60 million, according to boxofficemojo.com. British zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later placed a distant second with a disappointing $10 million take, while tabloid queen Lindsay Lohan's comeback vehicle Georgia Rule grossed just under $6 million. Rounding out the top five were Disturbia at $4.8 million and Delta Farce at $3.5 million.
Mediocre reviews have started to take their toll on Spider-Man 3, as the flick managed only the fourth best second weekend of all time after demolishing records during its opening weekend. If the trend continues, Tobey Maguire just might have to downgrade his Gulfstream G350 to the far less roomy G150. Poor guy.
Look for a new box office champ next weekend, as a big green ogre awaits on the horizon, licking his chops at the sight of his wounded prey. Posted 05.14.07 by reelz
Spider-Man 3 is a virtual lock to top the weekend box office for the second week in a row. Nevertheless, a few brave little movies have volunteered to take on the Spidey juggernaut.
Here's a rundown of our reviews of this week's new releases. Anybody else notice a pattern?
28 Weeks Later
"...more or less a conventional big-budget action film, albeit one featuring flesh-eating zombies. It's all about guns and explosions and elaborately set-pieces." [Full Review]
"As overtly Hallmark-schmoopy as Marshall's and Andrews' work can sometimes be, I still tend to like it....for all its flaws, the story is still interesting and watchable." [Full Review]
"Is The Ex the most amazing comedy I have ever seen? Well, no. But I'll tell you, I had fun watching it." [Full Review]
Some of you may believe the 6-6-6 pattern merely denotes a trio of mediocre new releases, but I prefer to interpret it as a signal that the Dark Lord is assembling his minions in preparation for his final assault on the people of Earth.
But hey, that's just me.
Also opening this week: Delta Farce, Home of the Brave and The Salon. Posted 05.11.07 by reelz
