Face Off: Van Helsing vs. Hellboy

In last week's Face-Off column , it was a tight race as to whether your favorite movie version of Tom Clancy's CIA analyst Jack Ryan was played by Harrison Ford or Alec Baldwin. We'll call this one... too close to call! This weekend in I, FRANKENSTEIN , Aaron Eckhart arrives in theaters as Frankenstein's creation, now reimagined as a superhuman defender of mankind during a war...

Face Off: Alec Baldwin Jack Ryan vs. Harrison Ford Jack Ryan

In last week's Face-Off , a pair of quirky and celebrated acting talents were tossed into the cage, and while Ryan Gosling definitely has his share of fans, most of you agreed that Joaquin Phoenix deserved the win. This weekend, actor Chris Pine is the latest to take over the role of Tom Clancy's famous CIA analyst in JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT . And he's got some big shoes to fill,...

Face Off: Joaquin Phoenix vs. Ryan Gosling

In last week's Face-Off , the movies of 2013 were put up against the releases of 2012, and you were overwhelmingly in agreement with the verdict that 2012 provided the bigger bang, in no small part due to blockbusters like THE AVENGERS. Good luck, 2014! This week's showdown features Joaquin Phoenix (star of HER , in wide release this week) and Ryan Gosling, a pair of versatile actors...

Face Off: 2012 Movies vs. 2013 Movies

When Rocky and Raging Bull got into the ring for last week’s Face Off, it seems that more of you agreed that Rocky was the reigning champ. Yo, Adrian! Another 52 weeks of movies is now in the rearview mirror, and Hollywood gave us seemingly endless attractions that made them ungodly amounts of money. But how did the high points of 2013 movies measure up against the previous year in...

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...
