Face-Off: Rocky vs. Raging Bull

In last week's Christmas edition of the Face-Off we witnessed CHRISTMAS VACATION bury HOME ALONE in an overwhelming victory. Johnny Galecki did good work in the movie but Anthony Michael Hall will always be the best ‘Russ’ in my book. Today is December 26th, 2013 which is Thursday in the United States but Boxing Day in Canada. With the boxing movie GRUDGE MATCH starring Sly...

Face-Off: Christmas Vacation vs. Home Alone

It wasn’t as close a race as I thought it would be in last week's Face-Off as James Cameron got the majority of your votes as he beat down on Kiwi director Peter Jackson and those adorable little hobbit-men of his. “Game over, man!” Christmas is in the air and with the big day less than a week away now, it was only natural for us here at JoBlo.com to serve up a Christmas Face-Off for all...

Face-Off: James Cameron vs. Peter Jackson

It was a Willem vs. Woody battle in last week's Face-Off and after all of you chimed in and the dust settled it was clear that Will Dafoe was the clear winner against the wacky and wonderful Woody Harrelson. THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG opens this Friday so we decided to do an all-director Face-Off this week with Kiwi director Peter Jackson facing off versus Canuck director...

Face-Off: Willem Dafoe vs. Woody Harrelson

Our special Thanksgiving edition of the Face-Off last week featured ANY GIVEN SUNDAY hitting the field with THE LONGEST YARD (1974) with the Oliver Stone opus winning the big game. Scott Cooper’s second directorial effort OUT OF THE FURNACE opens tomorrow and so we figured we’d throw a couple of great actors from his film into our ring: Willem Dafoe and Woody Harrelson. I didn’t...

Face-Off: The Longest Yard (1974) vs. Any Given Sunday

Last week's Face-Off featured SWINGERS pals Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau in the ring with the director of IRON MAN getting the slight edge. Today is Thanksgiving in the United States so I wanted to wish everybody down there a very joyous turkey day right off the bat. I’m Canadian and since we celebrated our Thanksgiving sometime in the summer, today is more like Thanksfootball for...

Face-Off: Vince Vaughn vs. Jon Favreau

Christian Bale was the big winner in last week's Face-Off as we pitted him against another one of today’s greatest actors, Leonardo DiCaprio. In honor of his win, I wanted to quote his character from AMERICAN PSYCHO for a moment: “Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of...

Face-Off: Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Christian Bale

It was an all-superhero Face-Off last week as we had the movies THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER battle one another for the victory. It was a close race but in the end Cap was the victor just edging out the God of Thunder. Two of my most anticipated movies this fall are AMERICAN HUSTLE and THE WOLF OF WALL STREET . With that in mind, I decided to face-off two of...

Face-Off: Thor vs. Captain America: The First Avenger

Halloween week at JoBlo.com had us face-off two devilish movies in last week's article as THE OMEN battled ROSEMARY'S BABY and came up the loser. With the release of THOR: THE DARK WORLD tomorrow, it was a no-brainer for this week’s piece to feature the God of Thunder so we decided on THOR (2011) vs. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011). This gave me an excuse to...

Face-Off: Rosemary's Baby vs. The Omen

We had an all-out Spanish-speaking beauties face-off last week with Penélope Cruz battling Salma Hayek in a fight that saw Hayek overwhelmingly dominate her buddy Cruz. After that sexy head-to-head, I’m going to take a breather and focus on this week’s Halloween theme and pit two of my favorite “devil-themed” horror classics against one another: Roman Polanski’s 1968 classic ROSEMARY'S BABY...

Face-Off: Salma Hayek vs. Penélope Cruz

With the release of ESCAPE PLAN last week, our Face-Off featured a battle between characters made famous by Sylvester Stallone (John Rambo from Rambo: First Blood Part II ) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (John Matrix from COMMANDO ). John Rambo decided: “Nothing is over!” and won the battle of the 80s action superstars. Ridley Scott releases his latest this Friday with THE COUNSELOR...

Face-Off: John Matrix vs. John Rambo

Last week's Face-Off featured the two badass characters of Black Dynamite and Machete Cortez with the former winning the battle handily. Cortez was dealt a double blow as his film MACHETE KILLS sank at the box office. With the Schwarzenegger/Stallone prison break movie ESCAPE PLAN opening in theaters this weekend, we decided to have this week’s face-off revolve around the two...

Face-Off: Black Dynamite vs. Machete Cortez

In last week’s article , we celebrated the two best astronaut movies ever made by facing-off THE RIGHT STUFF versus APOLLO 13 with the former just edging out Ron Howard’s 1995 effort. MACHETE KILLS open this Friday (the sequel to Robert Rodriguez’ 2010 action cheeser MACHETE ) starring badass Danny Trejo, madman Mel Gibson, sexbomb Sofia Vergara and idiot Lady Gaga. As a...
