In acting, sometimes a great performance stands alone, and other times an ensemble can come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Beards can be the same way.
While there were many beards that achieved greatness on their own this year, we found that there were also several instances of a group of beards creating something that no single beard could achieve on its own. For this reason we decided to devote a Reelzie category to best beard ensemble. Vote for the Best Beard Ensemble of 2012 >> Posted 01.08.13 by Mandy

"Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all." — William Faulkner
Thanksgiving Day is a special holiday. It's that one day of the year where we all get to skip work to gather with our friends and family members and simply reflect on the things in our lives that we have to be thankful for...and then watch NFL football and consume massive quantities of "harvest" food. At ReelzChannel, we're all about movies, so Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete if we didn't take the time to be thankful for all of the great new movies of the year. If you're a movie person, then we consider you part of our extended family. So, before you have that third helping of stuffing and pass out on the couch from all of the tryptophan in the turkey, take a moment to share with us the movies that have excited, thrilled, scared, and moved you in 2012.

Movie heroines are at an all-time high these days, with several of the year's most successful movies featuring female characters as the central role. For instance, Pixar's Brave, the first movie for the animation studio to feature a lead female character, is currently the fifth highest-grossing movie of the year, following The Hunger Games, which is currently the third. Snow White and the Huntsman is 11th, with Snow White actress Kristen Stewart likely eclipsing that when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 arrives in theaters this weekend.
No doubt the increase in movie heroines is anchored by the success of the Twilight franchise, with The Hunger Games cementing the trend. As franchises go, both are amongst the 100 top-grossing movies of all time, despite The Hunger Games being only one installment in. Box office receipts aside, with Breaking Dawn Part 2 closing out the franchise this weekend, we thought the time was right to compare the two movie heroines — Twilight's Bella Cullen née Swan (Stewart) and The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and see which would come out on top of our Character Cage Match. check out the characters' strengths and weaknesses before weighing in on our poll >> Posted 11.16.12 by Ryan
The Avengers was released on Blu-ray and DVD this week. It, of course, features the lethal Black Widow / Natasha Romanoff, who is one tough chick. Another tough chick who was new to Blu-ray and DVD only a few weeks ago is Katniss Everdeen, star of The Hunger Games. So what would happen if these two tough-as-nails ladies went up against each other in a cage? Well, they’d probably be able to make plenty of money via PPV, but who would win the match?

Katniss makes "fudge-puddles"
After Twilight received the BLR treatment it was only a matter of time before YA uber-franchise The Hunger Games was subjected to the same hilariously off-beat reinterpreted dialogue.

It's Tuesday, which means new DVD and Blu-rays are
hitting the shelves ready to be added to your queue/cart. If you're not sure what to get, ReelzChannel movie expert Richard Roeper has the lowdown on the latest releases.
Roeper gives his take on the sixth season of Dexter and the third season of Community. He also reviews the home release of the mega-hit adaptation The Hunger Games. Roeper discusses director Gary Ross' adaptation of Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel as well as the extras on the disc, which should make fans extra happy about taking a piece of Panem home with them.

Much like the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises before it, the The Hunger Games' final novel, Mockingjay, will split into two parts for its movie adaptation. A movie quadrilogy of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series was first rumored over a year ago, and Lionsgate has made it official by setting release dates for both parts of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
Part 1 will open worldwide on November 21, 2014, while Mockingjay Part 2 will follow on November 20, 2015. The second installment of the series, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, will be released on November 22, 2013, and will likely start production this September. Considering the proximity of the release dates, it would seem that Jennifer Lawrence's schedule will be busy for quite some time.
With Mockingjay being split into two, the big question is how Lionsgate plans to split the book. While plenty of theories are bound to proliferate online, Entertainment Weekly has three possibilities, which, unless you've already read the books, are filled with spoilers so be warned.

After being offered a role in June, it looks like Philip Seymour Hoffman has decided to join the Hunger Games.
E! Online reported yesterday that Hoffman had officially signed on for the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, the man who takes over as Head Gamemaker in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the sequel to this year's hugely successful The Hunger Games adaptation. "The deal was made right before the Fourth of July holiday," a source told the site. Studio Lionsgate has also confirmed Hoffman's casting as Heavensbee. Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley)was the head gamemaker in The Hunger Games. more about Catching Fire >> Posted 07.09.12 by Ryan
It’s the one awards show where Twilight can always be counted on to be an annual contender. Of course, we’re talking about the MTV Movie Awards, and in true fashion the show was as predictable as Charlie Sheen in Las Vegas, with the top awards going to Twilight and the newest teen franchise, The Hunger Games.
Going into the award show, Twi-hard fans were upset that newcomer The Hunger Games received more nominations than Breaking Dawn: Part 1. But the vampire franchise got its due, taking home the golden popcorn for Best Kiss (Kristen Stewart had to accept the award without partner-in-crime Robert Pattinson) and for Movie of the Year. But Katniss and Co. didn’t go home empty handed. Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson both took home individual awards and the movie also won Best Fight. Check after the jump for a full list of winners and highlights from the MTV Movie Awards. Read the full list of winners >> Posted 06.04.12 by Chris
