One of the best parts about being the boss around here is that, for the most part, I get to enjoy reading the work of the other writers here on FSR. Some would call it a curse, having to read, edit and fine tune just about every article that hits the pages of this site, but I like to look at it as a blessing — I get to read some of the best movie-related articles on the web before anyone else. So when I say that I know what articles were the best from the past week, I’d say that I know what I’m talking about. Therefore it is only fitting that I am the one who gets to bring you this weekly column, The Best of the Rejects: An Ode to the Week That Was.
Now, I humbly present the hottest news items, editorials and other random shenanigans from the past week:

Ryan Reynolds is the Anti-Dane Cook
Probably one of the best editorials of the week, hands down. We’ve been known to hate on Dane Cook, but this love letter to Ryan Reynolds is on another level, altogether. I smell a man-crush.
