Today's Challenge: Can you link The King's Speech and Gulliver's Travels, both out on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time today?
Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

The Golden Globe nominations are already out, and the Oscar nominations are forthcoming, but what about the Razzies — the awards show that celebrates the worst Hollywood has to offer? The LA Times reports that the nominating lists for the Razzies have been sent out and the shortlist for worst picture contains the following movies: The Bounty Hunter, Clash of the Titans, The Expendables, Grown Ups, Jonah Hex, Killers, The Last Airbender, Little Fockers, Sex and the City 2, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Vampires Suck, and Yogi Bear. (Keep your fingers crossed When in Rome, The Back-Up Plan, and Gulliver's Travels, you might still make it!) who else could "win"? >> Posted 01.05.11 by Ryan

Sneaking into theaters this December is a modern-day adaptation of Gulliver's Travels, starring Jack Black. Fox has released a new trailer for the movie, which appears to be (quite) loosely based on the Jonathan Swift novel of the same name unless we're misremembering and Swift's story centered on a mail-room employee who is given a chance to become a travel reporter with an assignment that takes him to the Bermuda triangle and, ultimately, the island of Lilliput, where the inhabitants are only inches-tall. We're pretty sure there's still some of Swift's political satire in there as well amongst the references to Star Wars and Twilight. Watch the trailer >> Posted 11.03.10 by Ryan
