One of the keys to running a successful movie site — I’m told — is to make your content interesting, no matter how much of it you deliver. Quantity is never a bad thing, but quality matters more. At least that’s how we do things around here. And with our man-in-charge Cole Abaius off celebrating his nuptials for a second straight week, the rest of the writing team here at FSR brought some thunderous content. Not a ton of it, mind you, but enough to keep things interesting. With that in mind, I’ve got some of the best of it listed in this latest edition of The Week That Was. Just hit the jump and find all of the best content that you may have missed this week.

Dispatch from Reject HQ
This coming week we will welcome Cole Abaius back to the world of the working. We know that you’ve probably missed him dearly. Also, I’m going to continue to make shocking comments in this column until someone responds in the talkback section below. Stuff like: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 1 was just okay, if you like half-blood movies.” And “if you don’t watch Tron: Legacy trailers and get all hot and bothered, there’s something broken inside you.” These are all facts, people.
