  What Happened?
Posted by: Mike on Feb 24th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

For those that came to the site this morning, and wondered why the posts were from February 2008, ask our wonderfully terrible web host.  They seem to have messed things up late last night.

I fixed everything now, and we should be good to go, until next time.  Sorry about that.

  Snobbies Winners 2008
Posted by: Christine on Apr 15th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

This year’s Snobbies had a fantastic turnout! We had almost 4,000 voters. Several categories were won by only a few votes (Bratz won over Norbit for Worst Movie with only five votes).

No one matched all 16 categories to win the grand prize, but we had a few other winners for the prizes of an iPod Touch, 3 DVDs of your choice, and 1 DVD. To see how many you matched enter your email address on this page and it will show you your votes and the winners.

Without any further ado, here are the winners of the 2008 Snobbies (don’t forget that some categories have spoilers):


  Most Popular: March 2008
Posted by: Christine on Apr 2nd, 2008 Leave a Comment »

March was a great month for DVD releases (I Am Legend and Hitman, among others) and a fantastic month for the Third Annual Snobbies awards. The Snobbies ended March 31st, and the winners will be announced on April 15th. For now, check out this month’s list of the most popular posts.

  1. The Third Annual Snobbies – Each year since we started MovieSnobs, we have held our own movie awards, allowing our readers to vote on the best (and worst) movies of the year. The voting ends in March, so the Snobbies were our number one most visited page. The winners will be announced April 15th.
  2. The Prestige Explained – Mike’s minute-by-minute explanation of the Christopher Nolan film The Prestige has our readers arguing the details of the very confusing plot.
  3. 40 Hottest Women Over 40 – Mike’s list of the hottest women in movies, TV, and music that are over 40. Complete with superhot pictures.
  4. New Hitman Images – The DVD release of Hitman had everyone searching for images from the movie.
  5. The Dark Knight Viral Marketing – As the campaign for Harvey Dent heats up, readers were looking for any news on the viral marketing for The Dark Knight. This post was Mike’s step-by-step of the scavenger hunt in San Diego during Comi-Con.
  6. Babel Review – Mike’s review of the Brad Pitt / Cate Blanchett Oscar winning film draws lots of attention because it’s so negative. In fact, more than a few readers found the review by searching for “babel sucked.”
  7. D-Wars Sequel Already? – Apparently some people actually liked Dragon Wars and are anticipating the sequel. Unlike me.
  8. The Prestige Review – Mike’s explanation of The Prestige (see #2 on this list) has our readers heading over to his five-star review of the movie.
  9. Special Effects in I Am Legend – The DVD release of I Am Legend had everyone talking about the alternate ending and the special effects used to create the creatures. This article has links to interviews with the special effects guys.
  10. Eddie Izzard Actor Page – Comedian and star of The Riches Eddie Izzard received a lot of traffic this month thanks to his appearance in Across The Universe and his show’s second season starting.

That’s the list for this month. Come back on April 15th to see the winners of the Snobbies, and come back next month to see what was hot in movie news in April.

Not a single nomination for Christian Bale. Such a shame…

Juno, Enchanted, and Sweeney Todd all grabbed nominations. Check out the full list on Rope of Silicon.

Now we just need to wonder if the awards show will even happen.

  Golden Globe Winners 2008
Posted by: Christine on Jan 14th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

After the news broke that the Golden Globes were being shortened to a press conference from the usual 3-hour ceremony after the news broke that Katherine Heigl and other stars were boycotting the Golden Globes due to the WGA Strike, I pretty much checked out of any news about the Globes.

I’m in it for the acceptance speeches and the stunning dresses.

Since I wouldn’t be getting either, I didn’t bother to watch. The guys over at /Film did, however, and they have a complete list of all the winners and the nominees.
