  1. YouTube HOF: Wide World of Zombies

    Grantland staff

    The Zombie Era just won't die — this weekend, Brad Pitt arrives on the big screen to mow down the reanimated hordes in World War Z, and AMC's The Walking Dead has been renewed through approximately 2084. So it seemed as good a time as any to ta...

  2. YouTube HOF: Surprise Deaths

    Grantland staff

    We've slowly begun the healing process after this week's traumatic episode of Game of Thrones, but some cinematic wounds are deeper than others. There's nothing like a nice, sadistic, unexpected film death to make you appreciate the ephemerality of l...

  3. YouTube HOF: Big Willie Style

    Grantland staff

    Things were a little touch-and-go there for a while, but after last year's Men in Black 3, followed by this weekend's postapocalyptic Daddy and Me adventure After Earth, and the slate of big-budget projects with numbers in the title on his IMDb page,...

  4. YouTube HOF: Robert Downey Jr.

    Grantland staff

    This Friday sees the release of Iron Man 3, with Robert Downey Jr. returning to the role that took him from (hugely rewarding) indie purgatory to all-out blockbuster movie star. But there are more than two chapters to the RDJ saga, and this week the ...

  5. YouTube HOF: America Under Attack!

    Grantland staff

    The U.S. of A. has been through a lot in the past century of cinema — from hostile aliens to zombies to the terrorist masterminds Gerard Butler must outsmart in this weekend's Olympus Has Fallen, it seems like everyone's out to get us. Join the...

  7. YouTube HOF: Zero Degrees of Kevin Bacon

    Grantland staff

    Much to our collective disappointment, it turns out that The Following isn't very good. (Unless you're into empty violence and fifth-grade-level Edgar Allen Poe references.) So in this week's Hall of Fame, we decided to remember Kevin Bacon in happie...

  8. YouTube HOF: Best Acceptance Speeches

    Grantland staff

    We're now waist-deep in awards season, and the Grantland staff would like to take this opportunity to remind all the Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Collar nominees out there that should they have to step up to that podium and take that mic on national tel...

  9. YouTube HOF: Hats!

    Grantland staff

    Gangster Squad makes its long-delayed debut this week, and the Grantland staff couldn't help but notice that, from the looks of the trailers, at least, this film seems to feature a noticeable excess of hats. This places it in an important, rarefied e...

  10. YouTube HOF: Creature Shop

    Grantland staff

    No matter how mixed (or just plain nauseated) the early reviews for the film are, the release of The Hobbit this weekend really just means the return of Gollum, one of the more memorable non-human characters in recent film history. Add at least one d...

  11. YouTube HOF: Nothing Like the Real Thing, Baby

    Grantland staff

    Yesterday the Internet was blessed with our first photographic evidence that Ashton "Kelso" Kutcher is indeed playing the late Steve Jobs in that other biopic about the Apple CEO that is currently in the works. But no matter how disastrously the 501s...

  12. YouTube HOF: Thanksgiving

    Grantland staff

    Editor's note: The four day weekend is upon us, so we here at the Prospectus thought we'd leave you with a Hall Of Fame highlighting the occasional joys and frequent horrors of Thanksgiving Day. Why are Thanksgiving disasters so much more satisfying ...

  13. YouTube HOF: Everybody Else in Lincoln

    Grantland staff

    Editor's note: Steven Spielberg's Lincoln gets its wide theatrical release this weekend, so the rest of the country can see what we coastal elites have been ooh-ing and ahh-ing about. Fun fact about Lincoln: Everyone is in it. And sure, everyone will...

  14. YouTube HOF: Bond Clips. James Bond Clips.

    Grantland staff

    Editor's note: Skyfall is coming to America on Friday. But you probably knew that already. And so, as is our wont, here is a haphazardly curated collection of Bond moments from the staff. Be forewarned if you're strictly old-school on 007: You aren't...

  15. YouTube HOF: Fourqueltology

    Grantland staff

    Paranormal Activity heads to the screens for the fourth time this weekend, and while the jury's still out on how it holds up to its three predecessors, the number in the title puts it in the dubious pantheon of franchise fourquels. By the time a film...

  16. YouTube Hall of Walken

    Grantland staff

    Seven Psychopaths, Martin McDonagh's follow-up to 2008's excellent In Bruges, comes out this weekend, and while we're certainly looking forward to the director teaming up with Colin Farrell again, it's a pretty good bet that nine out of 10 scenes wil...
