New Hitman Images – Much like the image of Ryan Gosling has drawn readers to the above post, the image of a bald, gun-toting Timothy Olyphant has drawn readers to this post from before the movie came out.
40 Hottest Women Over 40 – It’s no surprise that people are still flocking to Mike’s list of the top 40 hottest women over 40. With babes like Mariska Hargitay and Eva La Rue sprinkling the page, who wouldn’t want to read it?
The Prestige – Explained – Our most popular post ever has dropped to number 4 this month as the discussion continues. The spoiler-filled post is a jumping point for the intense discussion that follows in the comments.
Unofficial Cloverfield Soundtrack Available – Some fans are still looking for a Cloverfield soundtrack, even though one isn’t available. This post points to a listing of all the music played at Rob’s party in the movie.
2008 got off to a great start with the release of Cloverfield, but ended in tragedy with the death of Heath Ledger, an extremely talented young actor. It was a busy month for movie news, and a sad month for Hollywood. Here’s what was most popular on MovieSnobs for January 2008.
The Third Annual Snobbies – Every year since we started the MovieSnobs we have held our own movie awards, voted on by our readers. The readers who vote for the most number of movies that win are eligible to win great prizes. This year the grand prize is free movies for an entire year. First prize is an 8 GB Apple iPod Touch.

Another year over, and another top ten list. December was a great month for movies, with the release of I Am Legend, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and many other great flicks. Here’s what the MovieSnobs readers were reading the most last month:
The Prestige – Explained – Possibly our most popular post ever, Mike’s minute-by-minute explanation of the film The Prestige has inspired a lively debate in the comments. It heated up this month with several people challenging Mike’s explanation of the film. Come join the discussion (if you’ve seen the movie, of course – this post is beyond spoiler-heavy).
New Hitman Images – While Hitman wasn’t my favorite movie of the year (see my review), it was a decent enough action flick, and fanboys everywhere were drooling over new pictures of Timothy Olyphant as the video game character Agent 47.
Optimus Prime Phone Call – The release of Transformers on DVD had everyone looking for the awesome promotion Paramount had on the official site where you could craft a phone call to a friend from…Optimus Prime. Unfortunately, the promotion was only live on the site for a short period of time.
The Dark Knight Viral Marketing – Another of our most popular posts ever, this kicked off the start of the intense viral marketing campaign for the Summer ’08 Batman movie. December saw less of the viral games and puzzles and more of the official straightforward releases of posters, trailers, and the first six minutes of the film (which screened before IMAX showings of I Am Legend).
Movie Theme Songs – Up a spot from last month, the YouTube video of a piano player doing some classic movie theme songs is still getting tons of clicks.
Ryan Gosling – Underrated Actor of the Year – My love letter to the talent of Oscar-Nominee Ryan Gosling has been attracting fellow fans from all over the world. I have a feeling the adorable picture of him might have something to do with it…
40 Hottest Women Over 40 – Mike’s picture-filled post about the 40 hottest women over 40 features such beauties as Demi Moore, Emily Proctor, Halle Berry, and Maria Bello. Each one is accompanied by a blurb about why you know her, why she’s hot, and a picture to prove it.
I Am Legend Review – The glowing, five-star review of I Am Legend tells just why this movie is worth the overpriced ticket, and why Will Smith is, and will always be, awesome.
Batman Vs. Superman – Best Easter Egg Ever – The discovery of an Easter egg hidden in I Am Legend was exciting enough, but finding out that it was a movie poster for the fictitious Batman Vs. Superman movie? Comic fans swooned. Now that the film’s been out a while, there have been a few other movie poster Easter eggs, but none as interesting as this.
