To celebrate French Toast Sunday’s 5th birthday, we will be counting down some of our favorite films from 2010 to 2014. By using a ranked score from our collective lists, we determine the overall highest rated choices. First up, we take a look at our favorite Sci Fi films from the past five years.

French Toast Sunday is made up of a collection of fantastic podcasters and writers from all across the globe. We are proud of the FTS community and would love for our readers to take a moment to get to know us a little better. Every month, we will highlight a new contributor with a brief questionnaire that will hopefully shine some light into the life of an FTSer. This month, we take a look into the world of Nick Rehak.
Movie Drinking games are tailored to a specific movie and generally consist of taking a drink or shot every time something is said or shown on screen. Here at French Toast Sunday, we want to give you guys a little something extra for your movie experience. Enjoy and movie-drink responsibly!
“… Mrs. Jacoby, do you see?”
Everyone knows that old walnut of wisdom: Never judge a book by its cover. You’ve probably been told that time and time again by your parents. Maybe you heard it in a song. Who knows, maybe it was the overall theme of a movie you’ve watched recently where opposites meet, dislike one another at first, but as they slowly get to know each other they realize they have more in common than they think. By the end of the movie, they become the best of friends. That’s pretty much what happened between myself and Manhunter.
