reservoir dogsThis week’s user-submitted Top 10 comes from a guy I know very well.

Cameron Hawk, from Lawrence, KS, is a singer/guitarist in The Dead Girls. It’s only appropriate then that he rings in on the ongoing debate in our Top 10s about music in movies.

If you have a Top 10 idea you’d like to submit, email me at info@scene-stealers.com. Halloween is close. We’ve already done overlooked scary movies, movie monsters, and movie-inspired Halloween costumes, but anything else is up for grabs!

Meanwhile, here’s Cameron’s fantastic list, with songs.

bob robertsBarack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention got me thinking about my favorite political movies.  We’ve had two so far and they both kicked ass. Anyway, I’m noticing most of my choices are satirical (which may say something about my opinion of modern politics), so no “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” or “Dave,” and also this list excludes documentaries because that’s a whole different species.

So without further ado, here are my Top 10 Political Movies. Next week we’ll have another user-submitted Top 10. If you have a Top 10 idea of your own and are ready to make the jump into writing one, email me at info@scene-stealers.com.

GhostbustersList posts serve a couple functions. They’re an easy out for a slow news day (or week), they’re discussion spawning nostalgia hooks, and sometimes they’re the entire basis for your site. But of course we fall for them every single time.

Entertainment Weekly just wrapped up an online poll pinning down the Funniest Movies of the Last 25 years and for once I’m in near total agreement with the majority of the list, including the #1 slotter: Ghostbusters. Holy damn, but that movie never stops being funny.

I was a little baffled at the inclusion of “Tropic of Thunder”, as it’s not as if we’ve had the time to let the film sink in and really become part of the cultural vocabulary. Likewise for the inclusion of “Superbad”. I adored the film, but I suppose it’s a replacement for the missed-it-by-one-year (and far superior) “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”. The only choice that I vehemently disagree with would have to be Office Space. It has one of the best opening 40 minutes of any comedy, but the plot just drags the movie down into the mirthless mud.

Though I gotta say: No “¡Three Amigos!”? “Shaun of the Dead”? C’mon…”Raising Arizona” doesn’t warrant a mention? For Buddha’s sake.. no “RUSHMORE”? So maybe I’m not in total agreement after all. Hmmmm.

Oh well, that’s list making for ya. I’m curious: What do you think was left off the list (or foolishly included)?

Traitor Review

by alphamonkey on August 27, 2008

Don Cheadle is the man! Check out our review for his latest drama/action/spy thriller Traitor! What do we have to say?

“Wow! An action/spy thriller distilled through the lens of an art house flick. Don Cheadle heads this impressively strong film about terrorism, and the lengths people will go to in order to commit, and to stop, it. Oh, and it’s got one of the best twists I’ve seen on film since that little kid saw dead people. Traitor is simply a must-see.”
