Julian Roman's Top 10 Movies of 2012

31 December 2012 2:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Putting together this year's best of 2012 list is akin to the buffet at my favorite barbeque restaurant. There's so many good choices, it's pretty difficult to know what to pick. 2012 was an excellent year in cinema. From Sundance in January to the slew of awards contenders in December, there was a tremendous variety of great films across every genre. Whittling down to the ten best movies was as tough a process as I've ever had writing this article. I chose my top 10 with the ideal of repeated viewing in mind. What films would stand the test of time? What films would I watch a second time if it were 3Am and I came across them on late night TV? Much like the buffet analogy, what would make me fill up my plate again and again. As we review the choices, let's start off with the films that didn't make the cut. »

Adam Lambert slams 'Les Miserables' singing: 'Cast actors who could actually sound good'

31 December 2012 2:32 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Adam Lambert is a reality TV star, a singer, and now you can add film critic to his resume! The "American Idol" runner-up wasn't particularly impressed with the singing in "Les Miserables," and he's not afraid to say it.

Though Lambert liked Anne Hathaway's performance as the doomed Fantine, he thought the majority of the cast lacked the vocal chops to pull off the live singing in the film. While most movie musicals have actors lip-sync the songs over tracks they previously recorded in a studio, "Les Miserables" director Tom Hooper opted to have the cast sing live while performing.

On Sunday, Dec. 30, Lambert posted his "Les Mis" rant on Twitter.

"Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors Pretending to be singers," he wrote. "...it's an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good »

Anne Hathaway celebrating with Madonna

31 December 2012 1:01 PM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Anne Hathaway is celebrating New Year's Eve with Madonna. The 'Les Miserables' actress - who married Adam Shulman in Big Sur, California in late September - is set to toast the start of 2013 by singing alongside the 54-year-old 'Celebration' singer at a star-studded bash organised by her wedding dress designer Valentino in Switzerland. A source told the New York Post's Page Six, that the 29-year-old actress is staying at the designer and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti's luxurious chalet in the exclusive mountain resort of Gstaad.

31 December 2012 12:10 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If we had to give 2012 to a single fashionista—well, it would be Joan Rivers, of course. But aside from the obvious, we're looking at Anne Hathaway, Kristen "My Keds are Dragging on the Floor" Stewart or, maybe, Jennifer Lawrence. But what about 2013? Who might break out and lead the sartorial pack? Well, being us, we already have the answers, and you may breathe a sigh of relief, for Miley Cyrus is not on the list. Flat abs are nice, but they're never gonna count as an accessory. Here's our definitive list for fashionistas to watch in 2013. Diane Kruger already owned 2012.

Guest Article By Vance Brawley

2012 was full of memorable movie moments. Moments that moved us, made us think, inspired laughter & tears and moments that surprised. When was the last time Christopher Walken really moved you? When has a Bond film looked so amazing? Were you also concerned when you heard about the casting of Anne Hathaway in both the new Batman movie and Les MISÉRABLES, one of the most beloved musicals of all time? And when was the last time you knew the outcome of a fact-based film but were on the edge of your seat during the climactic scene nonetheless? And what movie moments charmed you the most from 2012 and which ones will you remember for years to come?

In a countdown to 2013, here are some of my memorable moments and I believe at least a couple of yours:

Our Entertainment Wish List for 2013

31 December 2012 6:59 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Does 2013 look like a promising one for Lgbt entertainment sensations? My answer: Who knows, honestly? That's why we need to prepare a wish list, and fast. How can we know we're disappointed if we don't know what we want? 

Here are 10 wishes for entertainment in 2013. Please add your own at the bottom, whether or not they pertain specifically to gay entertainers. Let's make this year count, starting with a triumph at the Grammys.

1. Frank Ocean runs off with Album of the Year.

There've been some meaningless Grammy moments, particularly for Album of the Year. Steely Dan's 2001 triumph comes to mind, as does Herbie Hancock's peculiar tribute to Joni Mitchell that earned top honors for 2008. But an Album of the Year win for Frank Ocean's Channel Orange would give the Grammys back a modicum of much-needed credibility: He's mainstream, but not an utter juggernaut. His music is fresh and meaningful. »

Adam Lambert Slams Les Miserables Cast: They're "Great Actors Pretending to Be Singers"

31 December 2012 5:42 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Adam Lambert wants a refund on his Les Miserables movie tickets. After catching the flick this week, American Idol's season 8 runner-up took to Twitter to offer a scathing review of the movie musical starring Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and others. "Les Mis: Visually impressive with great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors Pretending to be singers. It's an opera. Hollywood's movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority," Lambert tweeted. Giving Hathaway a pass for her "breathtaking" performance as dying prostitute Fantine, Lambert [...] »

Thn’s Top 5 Of 2012: Number 1

31 December 2012 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

12 months of movies, hundreds of releases, we’re left with two; the best and worst as voted by the staff of Thn. Our best film of 2012 is…

The Dark Knight Rises – dir. Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Arriving with the weight of the world on its shoulders, The Dark Knight Rises surpassed expectations with its grand scale, epic scope and menacing tone. Christopher Nolan’s trilogy-ender challenged audiences with its refusal to explain what, why or how – the latter causing much chagrin amongst our team. Magnificently performed, fearlessly produced and clever, The Dark Knight Rises concluded a perfect trilogy with style.

Eight years on, a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham’s finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.

Self-proclaimed Bat-geek Claire Huxham couldn’t hide her admiration for Christopher and »

The Best Trailers Of 2012

30 December 2012 9:38 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Theatrical Trailer: the official theatrical piece, usually cut from the first (very long) cut of the picture or sometimes (if there is no first cut yet) from dailies (all the shot footage, including all the different takes and angles), maximum length of a trailer is two and a half minutes.

Teaser Trailer: A first, short theatrical preview piece (usually not longer than a minute and a half), cut from a few selected takes and scenes while the picture is still being shot.

For those of you who think it’s okay to show up to a film after the coming attractions – move along. No self-respecting movie geek would dare miss the previews. And don’t get us started on the individuals who arrive during the trailer you’ve been dying to see only to move through your line of sight during the all-important money shot.

The Hobbit wins a three-peat at the top of the box office

30 December 2012 8:26 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Even with its so-so reviews and a nearly three-hour running time, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is turning out to be a sizeable hit for New Line Cinema and director Peter Jackson. For the third weekend in a row the first Hobbit movie has captured the number one spot at the box office, this time grossing an estimated $32.9 million dollars. That brings the film's 13 day domestic total up to $222.7 million dollars. Factor in another $464 mil from The Hobbit's international venues and the combined box office total -- so far -- now stands at $686 million bucks.

How does The Hobbit stand in terms of box office with the Lord of the Rings movies? Well, if you stand An Unexpected Journey up against the previous three Middle-earth pictures, the first Hobbit movie has a way to go before it passes the money mark of the earlier pictures.

The Hobbit Continues Box-Office Reign, Tops Django Unchained and Les Miserables

30 December 2012 10:49 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Not even the highly anticipated releases of Django Unchained and Les Miserables could knock The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey from the top of the box office.

30 December 2012 9:15 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" was the unexpected winner at the box office for another weekend, grossing $32.9 domestically, according to the latest estimates.

Its six-day total of $67.4 million, however, is the best ever for a musical.

In the same time period, Quentin Tarantino's controversial "Django" has raked in over $64 million, more than half the total gross of "Inglorious Basterds" -- $120.5 million -- the director's last flick.

In other box-office news, "Skyfall" just surpassed the $1 billion worldwide milestone, making it the 14th-highest-grossing film.

Here are the Top 10 films for the weekend based on the latest estimates:

Anne Hathaway On Worrying Her Les Miserables Director With Her Weight Loss

29 December 2012 4:08 PM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

There has been much talk about Anne Hathaway's weight loss to play the prostitute Fantine in "Les Miserables," including when the film was being made by director Tom Hooper.

"To be honest, I thought she was going further than she should, and I tried to discourage her," he told the Los Angeles Times, about Anne's weight loss of 25 pounds.

The actress said losing so much weight from her regularly slender frame prompted a concerned reaction on the set of the movie musical.

"Tom didn't like what I was doing, but he understood why I was doing ...

'At 12, I swore I'd have my own film in the cinema'

29 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In 2011 that film was Oscar winner The King's Speech. Now he is Oscar-tipped again for Les Misérables. Here the 'tough guy' director, who made his first film while still at school, talks about the epic he sees as a timeless 'anthem for the dispossessed'

It was almost two years ago that I first met Tom Hooper. He was with Colin Firth, and their film, The King's Speech – which Hooper directed and in which Firth starred – was weeks away from winning its Oscars. It was a heady occasion. An excitable Hooper did most of the talking (Firth detests interviews) and the film – about the struggle George VI had with his speech impediment when he came to the throne in 1936 – became the unlikely winner that delighted everyone who saw it: an impossible act to follow.

And yet, today, Hooper is attempting to trump it on an epic scale. He has taken on »
