Our Summer Smacks

Summer’s over at Movie Smackdown! but we’ve got a lot to celebrate! Several new critics have joined in this year, the site traffic now sets a new record every month and we’re getting a lot of positive feedback for our new way to do movie reviews. For our new readers, we pick two films — related by theme, star, content, or whatever; usually one in the theaters and one on DVD — and review them against each other.

"Listen, it’s totally awesome about the baby and everything, but there’s a new Smackdown being posted so I’m just gonna go down to Starbucks and jack their Wi-Fi for a minute. You want a latte or anything? 

Below, these are the movies that have ended up in our cage for a little film-on-film competition so far this year. Some are still in theaters, others just released on DVD, and others got reviewed just because we felt the films could use a good Smack.

While he freely admits to having written the screenplay for the reviewer-savaged "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation," he hopes the fact that he also won the Writers Guild award a couple of years ago will cause you to cut him some slack. He's also a member of the Directors Guild, creator of five primetime network TV series, and author of a new non-fiction book about UFOs.
