Top Ten Worst Movies of 2011 - Part Two: The List

30 December 2011 8:08 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

 

Let's pile on one last time and let that be the end of it as I now present my personal top ten list of the Worst Movies of 2011. As I noted in Part One yesterday, I didn't see all of the films many are calling the worst of the year, films such as Jack and Jill, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, I Don't Know How She Does It, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Beastly and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star. I did, however, see my fair share of duds and of those I saw, these are the ten that top that list. If you missed Part One, that's where I essentially list my Dishonorable Mentions and I will link to it again at the end of this piece. For now, let's dive into the sewer and see what we find amidst the sludge. 10. Hobo with a Shotgun »

What's Wrong With Hollywood?

29 December 2011 9:52 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Los Angeles — Hollywood has more tricks in its bag than ever with digital 3-D and other new film tools. Yet as the images on screen get bigger and better, movie crowds keep shrinking – down to a 16-year low as 2011's film lineup fell well short of studios' record expectations.

Through New Year's Eve on Saturday, projected domestic revenues for the year stand at $10.2 billion, down 3.5 percent from 2010's, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Taking higher ticket prices into account, movie attendance is off even more, with an estimated 1.28 billion tickets sold, a 4.4 percent decline and the smallest movie audience since 1995, when admissions totaled 1.26 billion.

Just what has put the movie business in the dumps is anyone's guess – though safe bets include the tight economy, rising ticket prices, backlash against parades of sequels or remakes, and an almost-limitless inventory of portable and at-home gadgetry to occupy people's time.

Top 7 Films of 2011

29 December 2011 9:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10. Or in this case, I give you 14 films.

Two themes seemed to keep popping up in 2011; nostalgia and forgetting. The forgetting specifically came in the form of Alzheimer’s disease. Friends with Benefits, A Separation, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Descendants, and 50/50 all had a key character with Alzheimer’s. On the flip side, nostalgia seemed central to many films. The Artist is an homage to silent films, while Hugo pays tribute as well. The Muppets and Winnie the Pooh told stories that could have existed when those timeless characters were first created (tapping in to our nostalgia). Young Adult exists because of high school nostalgia. Super 8 is the nostalgia of Steven Spielberg through the eyes of J.J. Abrams. Midnight in Paris is most-definitely an obvious nostalgia for Paris in the 1920s.

Don’t forget to remember. That »

Tmp's Prelude to 2012—Part 2: John Carter, The Hunger Games, Wrath of the Titans, American Reunion, and More

27 December 2011 11:47 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

March and April have quickly become more and more populated.  It seems like all the rejected summer blockbusters flock to these two months, hoping the lack of competition will garner them box office glory.  Well it doesn't always work, you can't deny that there is money to be made during these two months.  And, evident from today's Prelude to 2012, studios want as much money as they can squeeze from these two months.  Hit the jump for full details on over 25 films hoping to make an impact in the limbo between Summer and the beginning of the year.  Who knows...you may just find something you'll like.

March has always been a busy time for film.  In fact, I would say that the year doesn't truly kick off Until this month.  Yeah, there's a couple notable releases in January and February (as shown here), but March is when the first blockbusters »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: A Night to Remember

27 December 2011 12:54 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: March 27, 2012

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $39.95

Studio: Criterion

British director Roy Ward’s unforgettable rendering of Walter Lord’s book A Night to Remember is arguably the finest dramatization of the sinking of the great ship ‘Titanic’ ever put on film. Yes, there are even many who feel that it’s more effective and memorable than James Cameron’s Titanic from 1997.

Starring such familiar British actors as Kenneth More, Ronald Allen, Robert Ayres and Honor Blackman, the classic 1958 action-drama A Night to Remember offers a sensitive and subtle but nonetheless grand depiction of the ship’s final hours.

Criterion released a DVD edition of A Night to Remember back in 1998. This latest DVD version, released alongside the film’s Blu-ray debut to acknowledge the 100-year memorial of the sinking , will include a bunch of bonus features not seen on the original DVD.

Here’s a list of features »

Disney Building "Avatar" Theme Park

25 December 2011 10:20 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

The Walt Disney Co. report they have reached an agreement with Fox Filmed Entertainment and James Cameron' s Lightstorm Entertainment to create 'theme park attractions' based on Cameron's 3D movie "Avatar".

Hollywood treats cinemagoers to a feast of Christmas film | Eric Hynes

23 December 2011 9:25 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Christmas is usually when Hollywood puts out its prestige films and Oscar-bait, but this year it's all about blockbusting action

Christmas weekend is upon us, but at the American multiplex it seems more like the 4th of July. In a season usually – or at least largely – dedicated to tony prestige pictures – the annual casting of Oscar bait – there are no less than three mass-market Hollywood franchises hogging all the attention and, inevitably, ticket sales: Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin, David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

Though major investments are on the line and the box office won't share the wealth evenly, these aren't exactly risky bets. The first two are lavishly mounted adaptations of beloved best-selling books, directed by auteurs as bankable as they are revered; and the last film is the fourth instalment in a longstanding series, »

It’s 3D or Bust for ‘Pina’ Director Wim Wenders

23 December 2011 9:00 AM, PST | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

IFC Films A scene from ‘Pina’ directed by Wim Wenders

Wim Wenders has vowed to never again make another 2D film. The German director’s newest documentary work, “Pina,” details the life and work of  modern dance choreographer Pina Bausch. The bulk of the film was shot using 3D cameras, a technology that struck Wenders as a “very obvious way to put ‘Pina’ on the map.”

Defining 3D as a “new attraction,” Wenders says the concept of the film finally »

Wim Wenders Working On A 3D Film About Architecture

23 December 2011 5:59 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While James Cameron can be credited with bringing 3D back to the multiplex in a big way, leave it to guys like Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders to truly push the boundaries of the format in 2011, proving that it can do more than just make expensive, special effects blockbusters look good. For Scorsese, "Hugo" was arguably far more immersive than anything in "Avatar," with every inch of each frame a wonder to look at. Meanwhile, Wenders used 3D as a dimension to capture the energy and power of dance in a way that has never been done before, and the director is heading back to the format for a brand new project that also promises to offer more than meets than eye. With "Pina" hitting theaters this weekend, Wenders recently talked to the Documentary Channel and revealed he's already at work on a new non-fiction film. "I have actually already started a long-term project, »

David Fincher/Rooney Mara/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Has Good (Not Great) Opening Day: Box Office

22 December 2011 5:00 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Rooney Mara, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Tom Cruise/Ghost Protocol to Save North American Box Office: Mission: Impossible IV Overperforms on Wednesday Trailing Brad Bird/Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol was David Fincher's remake of Niels Arden Oplev's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara replacing Michael Nyqvist (featured in Ghost Protocol) and Noomi Rapace (featured in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). The Swedish-set American remake earned a good — though hardly outstanding — $5.06 million at 2,914 locations on Wednesday, Dec. 21, in North America, as per Box Office Mojo. The thriller's per-theater average was $1,738 — or about $850 less than Ghost Protocol's at 3,448 sites. Admittedly, the Tom Cruise actioner has the advantage of IMAX ticket-price surcharges. (All things being equal — including the fact that both Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and Rooney Mara's Lisbeth Salander walk around hooded — the fewer the number of theaters, »

Jamie Bell on Bringing ‘The Adventures of Tintin’ to Life

22 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

Scene from “The Adventures Of Tintin.”

From “Billy Elliot” to “The Adventures Of Tintin,” Jamie Bell has become synonymous with playing young men who face surprisingly grown-up challenges; and whether those challenges include the opposition of a small town to his irrepressible dancing, a fearsome 20-foot-tall ape, a phalanx of Roman soldiers or a drunken captain and a world full of adventure, Bell seems to handle all of them effortlessly. But in “Tintin,” Bell found himself working for no less than Seteven Spielberg, »

The Avengers in 3D, Disney Decides

22 December 2011 12:34 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Iron Man, The Avengers The North American box office needs saviors in North America — as opposed to moviegoers in Russia, China, the United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, Japan, and Mexico. Could the Disney-Marvel release The Avengers be it? Well, whether or not The Avengers will rescue the North American box office when it opens on May 4, 2012, it'll have at least one revenue advantage: ticket-price surcharges. Walt Disney Studios has decided to release The Avengers in 3D. The Avengers will hit theaters about one month after another 2D-to-3D conversion, James Cameron's multiple 1997 Oscar winner Titanic, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man, directed by Marc Webb, and starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, is another 2012 (July 3) super-hero release in 3D. Christian Bale's batman suit, however, will remain very much 2D-ish in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. »

Batman and The Hobbit tempt us into the trailer park

22 December 2011 8:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

We're suspicious of trailers, but the first real glimpses of the Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey were too big to miss

The big story

We don't normally get that excited about trailers. They have their place, but for the most part they're slippery, unreliable things - a keyhole shot of a bigger idea, designed to sell their wares to the largest audience, with little regard for the nature of their source material.

That said, there were a couple of promos released this week that even brine-soaked snobs like us couldn't ignore. Tuesday saw the release of the Dark Knight Rises trailer, the first real look at Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman film. Our go-to-guy for all things bat is Ben Child, who finally switched off the Bat Signal he'd installed on his roof and welcomed the caped crusader's return. "As with the best trailers, »

Though his name isn’t as familiar as some of the filmmakers he’s worked with, Joe Letteri is centrally responsible for some of the biggest blockbusters in Hollywood – the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “King Kong,” “Avatar,” and most recently, “Rise of the Planet Of The Apes,” to name just a few. As the Visual Effects Supervisor, his work is critically important in bringing to life the vision of folks like James Cameron and Peter Jackson, »

James Cameron defends remaking Titanic as 3D film - Realbollywood.com News

21 December 2011 11:09 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, Dec 22: James Cameron has defended his decision to remake his film Titanic in 3D, insisting that it is entirely 'valid'.

The 1997 film, which starred Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet won 11 Oscar awards.

The new version will hit cinemas on April 6, 2012, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail on April 10, 1912.

More than 300 production artists have worked for over 60 weeks to alter the film to 3D at a cost of 12 million pounds.

"I think it's perfectly valid . . . It just felt right in the centenary of the sinking of Titanic to bring this back out for fans who either. »
