After a string of bad movies in the late-2000's, Matthew McConaughey's acting career seemed to be spiraling the drain. But, thanks to strong performances in five indie movies in the last two years — The Lincoln Lawyer, Bernie, Killer Joe, Magic Mike and The Paperboy — and major buzz for his upcoming movie, Mud, McConaughey's star is on the rise once again. All McConaughey needs to cement his comeback is a big blockbuster movie and he appears to have found one in acclaimed director Christopher Nolan's (Inception) new sci-fi movie, Interstellar.
Join us in celebrating McConaughey's return by reflecting on the many memorable characters he's played in the past twenty years — from Wooderson, the charismatic stoner with a thing for high school girls in Dazed and Confused, to the title fugitive on a quest for love in Mud — and choose his best movies.

Saying it all in ten words or less.
Movie posters have a pretty big job. They need to look good, they need to intrigue movie audiences, they need to provide information about who was involved in making a movie, and sometimes, they even need to sum up a movie in just a handful of words. For those few pithy words that can describe a movie and pique the interest of a passerby, we have the Reelzie for Best Movie Poster Tagline. cast your vote >> Posted 12.26.12 by Mandy

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.

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.

The Los Angeles Film Festival came to a big finish on Sunday night with the premiere of the Steven Soderbergh stripper/buddy comedy Magic Mike. The movie opens wide on Friday, but three theaters' worth of fans got to check out the flick almost a week early.
The men of Mike, who were (unfortunately) dressed to the nines, took a few moments on the red carpet to discuss the highly anticipated movie. The impossibly handsome Matt Bomer talked about the movie's surprisingly broad audience appeal, while Adam Rodriquez and Alex Pettyfer were both completely charming as they told us a little about the audition process. We also got a chance to chat with the movie's stars, Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, and Mrs. Tatum, Jenna Dewan, had a few things to share with us as well.

Magic Mike's Joe Manganiello made the MTV Movie Awards worth watching this weekend by going on stage as his Big Dick Richie character, complete with fire fighter costume and inappropriate gestures with inanimate objects. Now MTV has even more Magic Mike goodness to share with a new sneak peek of the movie just released. Finally the images that we've been seeing as stills for months now are in action.
The new clip from the movie features dancing with umbrellas in a way that is not even vaguely reminiscent of Gene Kelly, but is quality entertainment, nonetheless. Luckily, this sneak peek focuses more on the fun, buddy-comedy, stripper aspects of the movie, rather than the romance angle that was unfortunately featured in the first trailer.

A whole lot of yummy is headed for newsstands on Friday. Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello are featured on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly, and even though too many of them are wearing shirts, they are looking mighty good.
The four men star in Magic Mike, Steven Soderbergh's buddy comedy/love story set in the world of male strip clubs. If the snippets that have already been released from the EW interview are any indication, the guys are all as good at telling a funny story as they are at looking good doused in water.
