Eff, Marry, Kill: Women of 'Oz' Edition


Are you a good witch, or a bad witch? Or, more accurately, do you prefer a good witch or a bad witch? That's the question we're asking today on this very special Ladies of "Oz the Great and Powerful" edition of NextMovie's Eff, Marry, Kill.

It would appear that beauty and magic have a direct correlation because Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, all certified Gorgeous Ladies, portray the three witches of Oz in the new flick, due in theaters March 8. Lovely though they all may be, there can only be one good witch — and only one you choose to bring home to Mom in a game of Eff, Marry, Kill, good witch or not so good.

So who will it be? Do you marry the lady who comes and goes by bubble? Have a soft spot for the witch in red? Are you enchanted by Oz's third witch? Be sure to vote in our poll and sound off in comments and on Twitter, and check out our esteemed FMKers' picks as well! Get More »

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?

When Harry Met Sally MGM

Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect. Get More »

PHOTOS: This Is 40 and Effing Hot

Judd Apatow's new comedy, "This Is 40," presents the many challenges that come with middle age, such as being attractive, having amusing and dedicated friends and wallowing in complete financial stability.

It's not all mundane tedium, though — sometimes you also just go crazy and get high in hotel rooms and caress Megan Fox's pert, twentysomething breasts.

Let's face it — something about being rich and famous kind of slows down the aging process that us regular schmoes have to contend with. Here are a few celebrity types who make 40 look like the new 25.

VIDEO: Jeremy Renner Says 'The Bourne Legacy' is a 'Small' Movie

Get More: Movie Trailers, Movies Blog

Even though the world has been waiting for "The Bourne Legacy" to hit theaters this summer, leading man Jeremy Renner doesn't think the movie is all that big — at least when it comes to keeping the production under wraps. Renner compared the secrecy involved in "The Bourne Legacy" to his other big summer blockbuster "The Avengers," and his answer might surprise you.

"'The Avengers' was really intense," Renner told MTV. "This one, I suppose, was really small in a lot of ways."

With all of the heart-pounding action and special effects we've seen in the trailer, you could've fooled us. But we guess nothing really gets the uber-fans scrambling for spoilers than assembling some of the most famous superheroes into one movie. Get More »
