Published

Redbox Flops X-Men: Apocalypse MovieSpoon.com

We’re so excited for October because X-Men: Apocalypse is finally coming to Redbox! The good news is you’ll be able to rent X-Men: Apocalypse for $1.5o from Redbox–the bad news is that it is it’s a critical bomb. Thankfully, there’s plenty of other awful movies coming to Redbox in addition to X-Men: Apocalypse to round out the best bad movie marathon. Check out the worst of the worst coming to Redbox next month:

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s the Halloween season and chances are Redbox will be rented out of all the horror movies come the month of Trick-or-Treating. But if you’re really looking for a scare in the less traditional sense, there are plenty of flops and misfires at Redbox to indulge your bad-movie fetish. You know, if that’s your thing, no judgement here. Redbox it up.

Redbox Flops X-Men: Apocalypse MovieSpoon.com

If you didn’t catch up on all the cinematic trash of this year at the theater, here is your chance to play catch-up with Redbox and endure the same pain we had to.

Here’s our list of our seven favorite Redbox bombs in October:

1. X-Men: Apocalypse

Redbox Flops X-Men: Apocalypse MovieSpoon.com

One would think that Bryan Singer’s third entry in his robust X-Men prequel trilogy would be just as solid. And that someone would be wrong. Unlike the previous X-Men movies, the villain of Apocalypse is far more vanilla with his standard supervillain scheme of controlling the world, assembling an army of evil mutants that follow him for no reason and transferring his soul into the crippled body of Professor Xavier. An ulterior motive I theorized was that he also wants to dress mutants in their classic costumes as he forces Magneto to wear a cape and helmet for no reason.

With too many mutants, too little character development and the most-dreary of apocalyptic scenarios, it’s amazing how Singer has the guts to criticize X-Men: The Last Stand as the worst of the original X-Men trilogy. You best not be talking smack out third movies being the worst, Singer; you just made one that most people are waiting for Redbox to see.

Key to the City

Key to the City x Bond

—Agent: The following is for your eyes only—

Talk about a character who won’t live and let die! Just like our Andy from Key to the City (which you should check out now by the way!), James Bond has had many different faces over the years (though Andy’s face literally changes every morning he wakes up 😃), which got me wondering about the best James Bond flick of all time. So read on and find out which movie gets a license to kill! Ok, I’m done with the puns now.

 

Moonraker (1979)

Inspired by the success of Star WarsMoonraker is an awesome, spacey James Bond movie.

 

Golden Eye (1995)

We love Sean Bean in pretty much everything, and he’s perfect as villain Alec Trevelyan/Janus, a rogue former MI6 agent. There’s also Famke Janssen, who has super-powered killer thighs.

 

Thunderball (1965)

This movie has one of the most iconic James Bond moments ever–when a gorgeous woman in a bathtub asks Bond for something to wear, he simply hands her a pair of shoes.

 

The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

As much as we love the actors who play James Bond, the villains are just as interesting. It doesn’t get much better than Christopher Lee playing a deranged assassin.

 

Casino Royale (2006)

Casino Royale did a remarkable job at painting James Bond as a real human, a trend which would follow in Daniel Craig’s later Bond movies. Eva Green’s portrayal of Vesper Lynd was a welcome twist on the standard Bond girl.

 

Dr. No (1962)

The very first of the James Bond films featured Sean Connery facing off against Doctor No, a crazed nuclear scientist. It set the standard for every Bond movie that followed.

 

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Though Roger Moore may not be people’s favorite James Bond, the worldwide scenery and crazy sets–like the ocean hideout–gave The Spy Who Loved Me a grand scale.

 

Skyfall (2012)

From Adele’s beautiful theme to the gorgeous cinematography, it’s impossible for Skyfall not to make an impression. This was Daniel Craig’s best appearance as James Bond, and Javier Bardem provides a terrifying counterbalance.

 

From Russia with Love (1963)

Sean Connery is one of our favorite James Bonds ever, and for good reason. In his second stint as the spy, Connery shines alongside former Miss Rome Daniela Bianchi. This is one of the most spy-feeling movies of any of the Bond films.

 

Goldfinger (1964)

Hailed as the “ultimate Bond” movie by many sources, Goldfinger featured Sean Connery in his third run as James Bond. Plus, who can forget one of the most memorable exchanges in film history? “Do you expect me to talk?” “No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!”

16 Sultry Movie Vampires That Will Make You BEG for Immortality from Izzy

Movie Vampires MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen it comes to immortality, we’ve got you covered with the Gods and Goddesses in Izzy. But when it comes to sexy immortality, vampires are the clear winners. Seriously, who can possibly think werewolves are remotely close to being as enticing as vampires are? It’s in a vampire’s very nature to be seductive, using their charms to win over victims.

And by “win over,” we mean “suck the life out of.” They’ve got those pointy fangs for a reason, after all, and they know how to use them.

Movie Vampires MovieSpoon.com

We probably shouldn’t find vampires as attractive as they are, but we can blame the Hollywood bigwigs for casting ridiculously good-looking actors as our favorite monsters. Here are 16 of the Sexiest Movie Vampires ever:

The 16 Greatest Villains That Will Make You Join the Dark Side

Published

By

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]s much as everyone likes to cheer on the hero, there are certain movies where you can’t help but feel some sympathy for the baddie. Sometimes, it’s good to be bad. Just ask Gabby… or better yet,  check out Gabby Goes to College and find out why. Sometimes though, bad just means plain ol’ bad… and we love it. Here are the 16 greatest movie villains ever:

 

#16. Commodus

Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator (2000)

Greatest Movie Villains Commodus MovieSpoon.com

He murdered his father to seize the throne, which doesn’t really start his rule off on a good foot.

 

#15. Loki

Tom Hiddleston, The Avengers (2012)

Greatest Movie Villains Loki MovieSpoon.com

This was the movie that put Tom Hiddleston on the map. Who wouldn’t want to follow the charismatic god of mischief?

 

#14. Wicked Witch of the West

Margaret Hamilton, The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Greatest Movie Villains Wicked Witch MovieSpoon.com

The flying monkeys may have been creepier, but the Wicked Witch of the West was the mastermind behind it all.

 

#13. Freddy Kreuger

Robert Englund, A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Greatest Movie Villains Joker MovieSpoon.com

Nightmares are already scary enough before Freddy Kreuger finds his way into your mind.

 

#12. Hans Gruber

Alan Rickman, Die Hard (1988)

Greatest Movie Villains Hans Gruber MovieSpoon.com

The German terrorist wouldn’t have been the same without the late Alan Rickman. Only his voice could leave such an impact on lines like, “That’s a very nice suit, Mr. Takagi. It would be a shame to ruin it.”

 

#11. Sauron

The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003)

Greatest Movie Villains Sauron MovieSpoon.com

Sauron is massively powerful, but his full power isn’t realized without his trusty ring. Unfortunately for the rest of Middle Earth and especially Frodo, he wants it back.

 

#10. Hans Landa

Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Greatest Movie Villains Hans Landa MovieSpoon.com

Quentin Tarantino refers to Hans Landa as the best character he’s ever created. Best, but possibly most chilling.

 

#9. Voldemort

Ralph Fiennes, Harry Potter franchise (2005-2011)

Greatest Movie Villains Voldemort MovieSpoon.com

The darkest wizard of all time murdered Harry Potter’s parents before attempting to kill Harry himself, who was a baby at the time. Who does that? Only one of the greatest villains ever.

 

#8. Bruce the Shark

Jaws (1975)

Greatest Movie Villains Jaws MovieSpoon.com

You only need to hear the music to know you’re in trouble.

 

#7. Michael Myers

Tony Moran, Halloween (1978)

Greatest Movie Villains Michael Myers MovieSpoon.com

He wears a creepy mask that must be hard to see out of and never seems to run, but somehow he always catches up to his victims.

 

#6. The Joker

Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight (2008)

Greatest Movie Villains Joker MovieSpoon.com

Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker was chilling. It won the actor a posthumous Oscar for his work.

 

#5. Count Dracula

Bela Lugosi, Dracula (1931)

Greatest Movie Villains Dracula MovieSpoon.com

Not only is Dracula one of the most classic monsters, Bela Lugosi’s portrayal is a classic performance.

 

#4. Jigsaw

Tobin Bell, Saw (2004)

Greatest Movie Villains Jigsaw MovieSpoon.com

Having a strong desire to live is one thing, but Jigsaw takes things too far when he tests other people’s will to do the same by making them mutilate themselves.

 

#3. Amon Goeth

Ralph Fiennes, Schindler’s List (1993)

Greatest Movie Villains Amon Goeth MovieSpoon.com

Goeth oversaw a Jewish labor camp during WWII, where he’d occasionally shoot prisoners just for the heck of it.

#2. Hannibal Lecter

Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal (2001)

Greatest Movie Villains Anthony Hopkins MovieSpoon.com

He eats people, but somehow you’re still rooting for this eerie movie villain.

 

#1. Darth Vader

David Prowse, Star Wars Franchise (1977-1983)

Greatest Movie Villains Darth Vader MovieSpoon.com

Though he’s most known for his heavy breathing and telling Luke about that whole paternity thing, Darth Vader, above all, strikes fear into his enemies’ hearts.
