11 Identical Movies Released at the Same Time « Top Movies I just read an article that there’s another mall cop movie coming out. It’s called “Observe and Report” and it’s the “edgier” take on the mall cop genre, with Seth Rogan handling the lead role that Kevin James just rode to absolutely shocking commercial success in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”. Well… this got my friends and me thinking about other basically identical movies that came at basically identical times. And, without too much trouble, I was able to find 11 cases of shockingly similar movies that were released within months of each other. Here are comparisons of each of those sets of movies. In each breakdown, I reference the Rotten Tomatoes score — if you’re unfamiliar, Rotten Tomatoes is a site that aggregates all the reviews for a movie and gives the movie a score based on what percentage of the reviews are positive. “Deep Impact” (May 8, 1998) and “Armageddon” (July 1, 1998) Critical success. Commercial success. Biggest difference. Winner? Critical success. Commercial success.

2012's most anticipated video games Last updated 05:00 17/01/2012 TOMB RAIDER 2012: Everyone loves a bit of Lara. It may not feel like it, but we've begun a very interesting year. The industry has entered another transitional phase as the established dominance of current console platforms, now some five or six years old, begins to wane. Nintendo, once the biggest player in the market with the phenomenally successful Wii, has seen hardware sales shrink. Motion control, the would-be darling of the casual games market, has foundered recently with developers seemingly unable to, or uninterested in taking full advantage of the possibilities presented by Kinect and Move. Both Sony and Nintendo have continued to push portable gaming, introducing (or, in the case of Sony, about to introduce) new hardware into a rapidly evolving handheld gaming market. Fans of the original BioShock will likely welcome the news that legendary designer Ken Levine is back on board for this third instalment. Hitman is returning in 2012. -Gameplanet Comments
