G’Colby Porter writes: Hey guys, the Critic’s Choice Awards nominees came out. What do you think of the nominees?

Khaldoon Bekou writes:What do you guys mean when you say that  20th Century Fox has to make more Fantastic Four movies otherwise the rights will revert back to Marvel?  I mean why do a certain studio has to continue to make movies on a certain franchise in order to keep the rights to that franchise, thanks and keep up the good work.

Thierry Saumure writes: Now that we see that In the Heart of the Sea has a weak opening weekend and will definitely get destroyed by Star Wars next week, did the studio make a mistake by moving it from its original release date in March? Or would it have bombed no matter what?
