  1. The rc car chase was terrific. Adding the helicopter was a nice touch.

    • yeah that thing was epic! kudos to those guys on making it

  2. Screen Rants, PLEASE learn correct grammar. It’s “2000s”, not “2000′s”. With “2000′s,” it makes the number 2000 possessive.

    • @Kittens on the Beat


    • @Katphoti – By that same token: We are “Screen Rant” – singular.

      • And if you want to get technical @Katphoti: The Name of the YouTube video is “2000′s” so we weren’t wrong in repeating it.

        For Grammar’s sake, I’ve changed it over to “2000s”

      • Check and mate!

    • Go complain somewere else.

  3. That tattoo thing was funny as hell!

  4. Isn’t Iron Man’s Mk IV Stealth armour fairly Tron-style already? Maybe that’s what gave him the idea in the first place.

  5. That tron style marvel characters is sick!! I’m digging the Blackbolt Tron look.

    • *Edit*
      Whoops that looked like Blackbolt but it’s Bucky lol

  6. Please for the love of all that is good, stop posting videos with Grae Drake. I don’t think I have liked a single one of her videos, she never properly explains why something should be on her top something lists and she acts like she knows what she is talking about and goes and gets many things wrong with many movies. I haven’t watched the last couple of videos from her that you guys have posted mostly for that reason, and I can’t remember the exact things she got wrong, but she has been factual wrong in MANY of her videos; I could care less about her opinions of movies too. I can’t believe someone with her lack of knowledge in movies is the Senior Editor for a Major Movie Ratings website.

    • I don’t like her videos either, but I keep watching them, hoping they’ll get better (usually they don’t). Her humour leaves something to be desired also. I don’t know how she got that job either, but oh well. Maybe some people like her videos.

  7. There were some awesome videos in this episode of SR!!

    Grae Drake’s zombie list was cool (but then so is she!)

    I’ve never heard of the ‘rejected pitch’ movie, so blah there…but the Japanese condom ice cream made up for it (and that girl spoke and read Japanese…awesome!)

    The animal vs human video was disturbing and cool at the same time…much like Cillian Murphy…

    The Jimmy Kimmel Valentine gift videos were excellent. I laughed out loud!!

  8. is it just me or is this the best geeks picks in recent memory? alot of cool stuff today :)

  9. How did Quarantine (or at least REC, which it was based on) not make it on the list of top 10 zombie movies? It was great.

    • Ironically the #1 entry 28 Days Later isn’t even a real zombie movie. The rage virus is infecting the living and none of the infected are undead. They are still quite alive. And since they don’t fit the bill of classic voodoo zombies either it’s not a zombie movie. It’s just survival horror in the wider sense.

      • p.s.: Quarantine isn’t really a zombie movie either. ;)

        • Haha yeah I guess not in that sense, but it’s close enough. Much more than Planet Terror anyway.
