Golden Globes Get Smacked Around Good!


Over here at Movie Smackdown! we've already put seven of the ten Golden Globe "best picture" nominees in the ring against worthy opponents.  

If you're new to the Smack, this might be a good way to check out the site and get to know some of our SmackRefs, especially two of our most prolific and keen observers, Sherry Coben and Mark Sanchez.

The way it works around here is that we take a film that's out in the theaters (or, in this case, nominated) and put it up against a related movie for a little film-on-film competition.  No thumbs or stars here, just a slug-fest with a winner declared at the end.  Links below.

Best Motion Picture, Drama

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy

By the way, our hosting service, Typepad, has just added the new feature of threaded commenting.  You may disagree with some of our SmackRefs or want to add to their reviews.  Fire when ready!  And thanks for dropping by!   From the Editor: Bryce Zabel

About Bryce Zabel 196 Articles
Drawing inspiration from career experiences as a CNN correspondent, TV Academy chairman, creator of five produced primetime network TV series, and fast-food frycook, Bryce is the Editor-in-Chief of "Movie Smackdown." 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. That, plus the fact that he has a new StudioCanal produced feature film, “The Last Battle,” shooting this summer in Europe about the end of World War II. He's also a member of the Directors Guild, Screen Actors Guild, and a past enthusiast of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. His new what-if book series, “Breakpoint,” just won the prestigious Sidewise Award for Alternate History, and has so far tackled JFK not being assassinated and The Beatles staying together.
