Movies are supposed to be larger than your sh*tty life. Movie girls are already hotter than anyone you know, the guys have more money than you could ever dream, so of course it makes sense that the houses you see in the movies are going to make your humble abode look like the homeless guy's cardboard shack you pass everyday to your cr@p job. In order to make you feel even worse about yourself, we're showing you 8 of the houses used in your favorite movies. Make sure you unload your gun before checking these cribs out after the jump!
By now we're all numb to the marketing tie-ins for movies. It's not at all uncommon today to see movies being promoted through clothing, cereal and, of course, video games. Since the goal of a video game tie-in is to gain popularity and advertising for the film in question, one doesn't expect too much. Sometimes, however, the game can be a faithful homage that complements what we love so much about these movies. Other times the video game is nothing more than a cash-in. Check out COED's list of movie video games that we remember for better or worse after the jump.
Many believe the box-office is the most critical aspect of what makes or breaks a film; it decides whether or not the film gets a sequel, an amusement ride, merchandising or a reservation at the bottom of the bargain bin. While most box office bombs are just plain bad, others were victims of poor promotional efforts, stiff competition, and/or other uncontrollable circumstances. Movies like Waterworld and The Golden Compass, which are widely perceived as bombs by the general public, actually made back their money through syndication and international distribution. This list will focus on those movies that did terribly at the box-office, but are considered good because of their cult status and/or success on DVD, Blu-ray, and on demand.

Ah, the overrated chant. If you've been to a major sporting event where an underdog upsets a favorite, you've probably heard it. But when it comes to movies, how does one know if a title is overrated? You don't have that chant when the credits come up, so how does one know? The reputation comes over time. As the hype wears off, one gains perspective on its actual merit. The movies on this list are excellent examples of when the bandwagon careens out of control. And just like any other list, we'd like to preface by saying that COED does not think these movies are bad, but that you might want to pump the brakes, slow your roll, and check yourself when evaluating them among the classics.
