The Best of the Best Movies of the Year!

30 December 2011 12:09 PM, PST | | See recent news »

By Scott Mendelson This time, it’s the best of the best. Of course ‘best’ is a subjective term, so you might want to consider these my ‘favorites’. Despite what everyone likes to whine about at the end of every year, 2011 was in fact one of the better years in a good long time. Maybe it was the effects of the 2007 WGA strike wearing off, maybe it was just dumb luck, but on the whole, movies, especially mainstream movies, were pretty on-spot more often than they weren’t. But just as important, most of the year-end Oscar bait was actually quite good, so this is a year where I don’t have to half-heartedly apologize for having a list filled with movies nobody saw and mainstream pictures that no one admits to liking. Even if it took 1/3 of the year to really get cooking, 2011 was an uncommonly solid »

Icons Of Fright presents Robg’s Top 10 Horror Movies of 2011!

29 December 2011 12:42 AM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Welcome back, fiends! We’re reached yet the end of another year and as always, it’s time to look back and discuss the best stuff that’s come and gone, look over some titles you might have missed and just reflect on what our beloved horror genre had to offer this year. I will say right off the bat that scanning over the titles I picked for my Top 10, the Top 6 are what I’d personally consider legitimate great genre offerings whereas picks 7 through 10 were serviceable horror movies that I didn’t love, but that entertained me tremendously and I’ll explain why I consider them serviceable when I get to them.

That said, I missed some great stuff that people have been talking about when compiling their lists. I have yet to see the much-praised horror/comedy Tucker & Dale Vs Evil which just hit DVD/Blu-Ray. Also haven »

'Bridesmaids' writer Annie Mumolo: 'We had fun with airplane scene'

28 December 2011 10:45 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Annie Mumolo has revealed that the popular Bridesmaids airplane scene was not part of the film's original script. The comedy's co-writer told Entertainment Weekly that the scene - in which Kristen Wiig's character Annie acts outlandishly after being given pills by rival Helen (Rose Byrne) as the bridal party travels to her best friend Lillian's (Maya Rudolph) bachelorette party in Las Vegas - was a late addition. Mumolo recalled: "When we finally wrote [the airplane scene], it really made us laugh and we saw the opportunity for what it could be and the potential that it had. It was actually one of the easier scenes for us to write. I don't know if that's because sometimes when you don't have enough time to overthink anything, you don't. "We just had so much fun with it. This scene just took off very (more) »

2011: The year’s best movie moments (part 1)

22 December 2011 12:08 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Most moviegoers can agree on one thing: there were way too many movies this year. If you’re (un)fortunate enough to live in New York, you had the opportunity to see around 600 new features come and go; the rest of us didn’t get that many fewer. That means that anyone who’s been put in a position to make a top 10 (or top 15, or top 20…) had to make some sad cuts. So we thought it appropriate to highlight some of the year’s most memorable individual moments, scenes, and sequences, from movies that may or may not have made our individual year-end lists. Some were from movies we didn’t love; some are from movies we didn’t even like, but all stood out. Which is no small feat considering just how insane the release calendar has become.

We are keeping out credit sequences since we feel it is an artform in itself, »

Best of 2011: Top 10 Movies of the Year!

16 December 2011 8:01 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This was the year when Hollywood made us laugh. A lot. When the Boy Wizard ended his battle with He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. When Ryan Gosling and Rose Byrne both pulled hat tricks. It was the year we got a Twilight wedding, and honeymoon, and birth. And maybe best of all, 2011 was when Kermit and Piggy and Gonzo returned to the big screen. So as the Golden Globes nominate their faves today, we continue the Best of 2011 party with our Top 10 Movies of the year! »

Best Ensemble... Except You Corey Stoll in "Midnight in Paris"!

14 December 2011 10:33 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's become something of a tradition here at The Film Experience to take issue with the Screen Actors Guild and their problematic "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Motion Picture" prize. Year after year they don't even seek to address an issue that you'd think would matter to the 90,000+ guild members: the preferencing of "names" over character actors, no matter the size or importance of the role. As you may know acting is one of those fields were you're lucky to just be working and those who make millions are few and far between. Yet the guild, which should be protecting their less-famous members often lets them be crushed by fame and its perks (aka getting your own title card or high billing). If you don't have your own title card you usually don't end up in the "ensemble" list. Our interest in this situation was first stirred by »

Sony Renews Deal with Escape Artists; Slate Includes The Equalizer Starring Denzel Washington and Sex Tape with Jason Segel

13 December 2011 1:31 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Escape Artists’s first-look deal with Sony Pictures has been reupped, extending the relationship between the two companies through 2015. Escape Artists has been with Sony since 1998, and produced its first film independently in 2001: A Knight’s Tale. The relationship between Sony and Escape Artists has birthed The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds, and the remake of The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3. Included in the release is news of Escape Artists’s upcoming slate. An interesting tidbit included mentions that Denzel Washington is now attached to the feature film adaptation of the 1980s CBS crime series The Equalizer. The project was initially developed for Russell Crowe and director Paul Haggis, but this new report only makes mention of Washington and producer Alex Siskind.

Insidious Now Showing on Netflix

9 December 2011 11:44 AM, PST | | See recent news »

If you have not had a chance to see Insidious I would recommend checking it out. Now is the perfect time since it is on Netfilx. Similar to the film Paranormal Activity, Insidious focuses on a family that's become victim to the haunting of… well something evil. In my opinion Insidious was one of the better horror movies in theaters this year and as a added bonus it was not a remake. You will not see a lot of gore and blood but the movie does have a interesting story and is fun to watch. Read our review of Insidious. Insidious is directed by James Wan (Saw) and stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne and Barbara Hershey. »

On Sunday, December 11th, A&E is set to debut director Mick Garris' latest endeavor, the television mini-series adaptation of Stephen King's classic novel Bag of Bones, which explores the themes of grief and lost love's enduring bonds, an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire, and a new love haunted by past secrets.

In the story we meet bestselling novelist Mike Noonan (Pierce Brosnan), who is unable to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife, Jo (Annabeth Gish). A dream inspires him to return to the couple's lakeside retreat in western Maine, where he becomes involved in a custody battle between the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child's enormously wealthy grandfather while also deailing with mysterious ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him.

If a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, a movie's cast is only great as its worst actor. This year we saw some of 2011's best films held together, not by one stand-out star, but by a group of amazing actors working together to make one great movie.

Come back every day this week for a new poll and a new chance to decide which movies ruled the multiplex this year.

Sony Pictures Planning 'Insidious' Sequel

30 November 2011 8:43 AM, PST | | See recent news »

We've been nudging everyone involved in FilmDistrict's smash hot Insidious about a sequel since the movie kicked the boxoffice's ass back in April. Even though everyone involved appears a bit hesitant to acknowledge sequel potential, Sony Pictures - who scored worldwide rights out of the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010 - is planning ahead. According to Fusible, Sony has nabbed the following domain names:, and I wonder if Sony can move ahead on the project without their involvement? They did make both direct-to-video titles Hostel 3 and Quarantine 2. In the first, Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne) make the terrifying discovery that the body of their comatose boy has become a magnet for malevolent entities, while his consciousness lies trapped in the dark and insidious realm known as The Further. »

Why Knowing is one of the most underrated sci-fi movies of the last few years

25 November 2011 3:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Met with a tepid critical response when it was released in 2009, Alex ProyasKnowing is still well worth your time, Ryan writes…

It’s 1959. A creepy little girl, having spent several minutes staring at the sun, listening to apparently non-existent voices, returns to her classroom and begins to scrawl a lengthy stream of numbers on a piece of paper. Sealed up in a time capsule for five decades, those numbers eventually fall into the hands of an astrophysics professor, who sees in them a terrible portent of doom.

It’s a sci-fi concept so 50s, and so reminiscent of an old Twilight Zone episode, you can almost imagine the distinctive voice of Rod Serling introducing it. Perhaps this is why, for me, Knowing is one of the most underrated sci-fi movies in recent years – it has the trappings of a great genre mystery, but with an apocalyptic tone that is strikingly modern. »

Thn’s Top Movie Scene Stealers

24 November 2011 5:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s a great argument that out of all of the star studded names in the superb comedy Horrible Bosses, one motherfucker [Jones] steals the show entirely. Yes, Jamie Foxx is simply awesome in the role of the go-to ‘hitman’, grabbing the limelight from his A-list co-stars Jason Bateman, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and a potty-mouthed Jennifer Aniston. To celebrate the release of the film, which hit home entertainment markets in the UK this week, we thought we’d think back and pop up some other movie scene stealers…

Christopher Walken in True Romance (1993)

If Quentin Tarantino were ever to ressurrect a character from one of his classic early movies, then Christopher Walken’s Vincenzo Coccotti would be it – and this guy lived right? For me, that whole scene in True Romance is the reason that I watch it time and time again. “I haven’t killed anybody… since 1984.” Walken managed »
