2013 sees at least two movies promising the end of the world (Comedies This Is The End and The World’s End), but also two movies set after the apocalypse (Oblivion and After Earth). It’s a year that has remakes of horror classics (Evil Dead, Carrie), sequels galore (New installments of The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, Kick-Ass, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and, of course, GI Joe: Retaliation) and a relaunch for Superman himself with Man of Steel. In other words, it’s a pretty packed year. But which of the movies due for release next year are you most excited about?
2012 was a busy year for genre movies, with long-awaited movies that may have disappointed (John Carter, Prometheus), franchises making new bids of life (Men in Black 3, Total Recall) and the superhero movies that ruled them all (The Dark Knight Rises and, of course, The Avengers). But what was your favorite movie of the year? Tell all in our poll.
If there’s one thing we can count on at this time of year, it’s the re-runs of all our favorite holiday cartoons and stop-motion specials, from Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer to How The Grinch Stole Christmas and, of course, A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Whether it’s bow-and-arrow-wielding vigilantes, aliens next door, the breakdown of all technology or possible nuclear war, the upcoming fall season of television brings with it a lot of new genre television. But which of the new shows are you most looking forward to?
If Warners and DC Entertainment have their collective corporate hearts set on building a movie Justice League, then what characters should be part of the team? We’ve had a Green Lantern movie, we’re used to cinematic Batmen and Man of Steel is coming out next year. But which other DC Universe characters should make their celluloid debuts in order to graduate to the Big League?
This weekend’s Total Recall marks the last blockbuster release of the summer season, closing us out with a remake of a much-beloved movie from two decades earlier. Remakes, comic book movies and a misconceived toy movie: What’s been your favorite of this summer’s big blockbuster movies?
On Tuesday, we asked which of the many live-action Batman movies was your favorite, but that was just a warm-up for the real question… By now, you’ve seen Bruce Wayne and his alter ego being personified by five different actors, each one bringing something different to the role. But which one brought the most? That’s right: We want to know the identity of your top movie Batman?
The Amazing Spider-Man opens today, giving audiences the chance to finally work out those Emma Stone-as-Gwen Stacy issues, and see if Andrew Garfield is less annoying than Tobey Maguire as everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood wall crawler (But, really, how could he not be?). But there’s one question that everyone’s been asking: Did we actually need it to be a reboot?
By now, chances are you’ve seen Marvel’s The Avengers if you have any interest at all in seeing it – or, for that matter, have a partner who has any interest at all in seeing it – and have made your own mind up about its quality or lack thereof (But, really, come on; it’s a good movie). With follow-ups apparently planned for potentially four of the six “official” Avengers, though, we started to wonder: Which character from the movie most deserves the solo spotlight next?
