Ahead of MTV Movie Awards Performance, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz Chooses His Fave Flicks of the Year

The MTV Movie Awards take place on Sunday night, and one of the artists on the bill is Fall Out Boy.  The band obviously is a fan of movies -- after all, their current album is called American Beauty/American Psycho -- but oddly enough, bass player Pete Wentz says his favorite films of the past year aren't among Sunday night's nominees.

"Personally, I would say a movie [that] we were involved in a very,…
