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

We laughed (at how bad the movie was), we cried (because we didn't see a different movie), we kissed eight bucks (or ten or twelve or sixteen, depending upon the format) good-bye!
Stale jokes, missing plots, phone-in performances...too often this summer movie season, we found ourselves scratching our heads in wonder at how actors and directors we have come to respect could have strayed so far off course. We probably should have gone back to the box office and demanded a refund for some of the stinkers we endured this summer. If you feel the same way, vent your frustration by helping us rate the Top 10 Worst Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.

A crippled hero rises to save his city one last time. A team of scientists seeking God in the depths of space instead discover pure evil. A fairy tale princess becomes a warrior and saves herself. A foul-mouthed teddy bear plays the white trash name game. This summer's selection of movie releases were filled with triumphant, terrifying, inspiring and hilarious moments.
The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises obliterated the popular myth that the superhero action genre had run its course. Ted proved that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is even funnier when he doesn't have to censor himself. Moonrise Kindom cemented Wes Anderson as the indie king of whimsical, witty comedies with a heart. Each of these movies were fantastic in their own ways, but how do they stack up against each other? Help us rate the Top 10 Best Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.

After releasing a preview clip last week, Twentieth Century Fox is offering two new scenes from its Honest Abe–vampire mashup. Based on author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith's book of the same name, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter blends historical facts from Lincoln's (Benjamin Walker) life and career with details of the former President's secret attempts to rid the United States of the bloodsuckers plaguing the country.
The previous clip showed Lincoln and William Johnson (Anthony Mackie) taking a train trip to Gettysburg that had both men fighting vampires en route. While one of these new clips is also devoted to showing Lincoln fight vampires, the first looks at Lincoln's early tutelage under his fanged mentor Henry Sturges (Dominic Cooper), who helps Lincoln perfect his ax-wielding skills. watch the clips >> Posted 06.19.12 by Ryan
Throughout its promotional campaign, both the historical and genre sides of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter have been played up. The trailer released Memorial Day weekend had Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) reading the Gettysburg address over footage from the movie, while the red band trailer featured a series of short clips of Honest Abe slaying vampires.
The movie's new preview clip combines both elements. We see Lincoln and friend William Johnson (Anthony Mackie) take a train trip to Gettysburg that requires both men to chop up as many vampires as they can. watch the clip >> Posted 06.14.12 by Ryan
What could be better timed for Memorial Day weekend than an inspiring, historical speech from an iconic American President? That's precisely what Twentieth Century Fox thought when releasing the latest trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which includes Lincoln's Gettysburg Address over footage from the movie.
This "inspirational" trailer is quite unlike the red band trailer released last week, which was specifically interested in showing Honest Abe's axe-wielding skills against the undead. Here, Lincoln's 1863 speech commemorating the fallen soldiers of the Battle of Gettysburg plays with footage of Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) engaging in his "secret" nocturnal activities — winning the war against vampires. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.29.12 by Ryan
From the beginning, the adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has seemed like yet another fun, summer blockbuster featuring an iconic former President who secretly led a double life where he would vanquish the undead at night while running the country by day (you know, that old tired premise). The trailers for the movie have shown that extra 3-D surcharge could even be worth it, showing Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) jumping, twirling and taking his axe-wielding justice out on nearby trees and (briefly) on Vampires.
If that wasn't enough to sway audience, the newly released red band trailer for the movie should entice, as it gives audiences what they want as it shows several scenes of Honest Abe beheading every undead vamp in his path. We might be jumping to conclusions, but that is what audiences want, right?
We should warn that the trailer doesn't skimp on the blood factor, so watch at your own risk. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.25.12 by Ryan
