We are leaving Kubrick behind and fast approaching Hyams. If you get that reference, go grab yourself a cookie. It is time for us to reflect back on the decade that was. On January 1st, 2000, Disney released Fantasia 2000. On Wednesday, December 30th, 2009, The White Ribbon is set to bow. Between the release of these two films, thousands of films came and went, and some of them were far more memorable than others. It was a long trek getting this list together, but here are our collective top 100 films of the past decade.

It took me two viewings to realize that There Will Be Blood was my favourite film of 2007. Too bad they both happened in 2008. Luckily, with the decade coming to a close, I can finally give There Will Be Blood the praise it deserves and include it in a list! Paul Thomas Anderson turns in a film that is uncharacteristically subdued in technique, yet unapologetically bombastic in its performances; specifically Daniel Day-Lewis as Daniel Plainview. While some complained that his portrayal was too 'showy', I thought it hit the spot, bringing life to the otherwise blown out and depressing late 19th century California setting. Paul Dano's Eli Sunday may not be able to match Day-Lewis' intensity, but it sure is a lot of fun to watch them go at each other. Characters aside, there's also some serious attention to detail in the process of turn of the century oil drilling, »

Directed by James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma), the film (previously entitled Wichita) centres on a fugitive couple on a "glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one - even themselves - are what they seem. Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust."

E! Online has posted the first trailer from the upcoming action film Knight and Day, which will be released in theaters nationwide on July 2, 2010. Click below for your first video glimpse of James Mangold's new film.Knight and Day stars Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, Olivier Martinez, Paul Dano, Maggie Grace, Mark Blucas and will be released in theaters on July 2, 2010. »
As wacky and unlikeable as Tom Cruise is, you have to hand it to the guy: there’s a reason he got successful in this business in the first place. The man is dynamic as all get-out, and that charisma is half the reason that this trailer for the upcoming Knight & Day works.
Directed by 3:10 to Yuma’s James Mangold, Knight & Day will be in theaters on July 2, 2010. The construction of the trailer, while falling flat on some comedic beats, does give a good indication of what the plot of the film is.

There hasn’t been much news surrounding this film despite its high profile cast other than its name change from “Wichita” back in October to what we now know the movie as.
Knight & Day is directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma) off a Patrick O’Neill script. Joining Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are Maggie Grace, Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, Marc Blucas, Olivier Martinez and Viola Davis.
Here’s a brief synopsis from Variety if you are unfamiliar with Knight & Day:

At the end of last week I put up a new poster for Knight and Day, the new movie starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Today, the first trailer has been released by 20th Century Fox and it shows us the more comical side of the movie with quite a bit of action thrown in too. I made me laugh!
It’s directed by James Mangold and also stars Maggie Grace, Peter Sarsgaard, Marc Blucas, Paul Dano, and Viola Davis. It’s got a release date of 2nd July and it’s yet another to look forward to in 2010.

20th Century Fox has released the first teaser trailer for the new Tom Cruise action/comedy Knight & Day. Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line / 3:10 to Yuma / Girl, Interrupted), the film centers on a fugitive couple (played by Cruise and Cameron Diaz) on a "glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one – even themselves – are what they seem. Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust." The film also feratures Maggie Grace, Peter Sarsgaard, Marc Blucas, Paul Dano, and Viola Davis. While the comedy at moments falls flat (which is a shame, as I loved Cruise's appearance in Tropic Thunder) the Bourne-style action sequences might be enough to earn my $10. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below. Knight & »

Is the world ready to embrace Tom Cruise again?
That may be an even more important question than "Will he save the world/get the girl?" in the new action/comedy Knight & Day, heretofore known as the top secret Wichita. Reunited with his Vanilla Sky co-star Cameron Diaz, Cruise appears to play a nigh-invulnerable badass who drags Diaz’ character on a globe-trotting adventure.
The action sequences look cool (there’s a motorcycle-related one that I assume is a spoof of Mission: Impossible 2), but personally, whenever I see Cruise, I half-expect him to start babbling about the joys of Scientology/myth of post-partum depression, or to jump up-and-down on a couch. I guess what I’m saying is, love him or not, I don’t know if I trust him to be my movie star anymore. But in a movie like Knight & Day, that might end up working in his favor: after all, »
Instead of getting a trailer for Piranha 3D, as reported to be attached with this week’s release of Avatar, most people got the trailer for Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise’s upcoming action-thriller, Knight and Day. Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, Cop Land) and written by Patrick O’Neill, in his first produced, feature screenplay, the film is centered around Diaz and Cruise’s characters being chased around the world where “no one and nothing is what it seems – even themselves.”
The trailer was pretty funny, and looked like the 20th Century Fox film is going to feature some fantastic action including Tom Cruise crash-landing a plane to jumping from a motorcycle onto the hood of Diaz’s car. The film also features Peter Sarsgaard (Orphan and An Education), Maggie Grace (Lost, Taken), Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) and Viola Davis (Law Abiding Citizen and Doubt). Unfortunately, »

This isn't our first look, because I don't think silhouettes count, but it is a cool poster. Thanks to SlashFilm we have the first teaser poster for Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz's summer movie Knight & Day. The action-comedy follows a fugitive couple on a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one, not even themselves, are what they seem. "Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust." Sounds intense. In addition to Cruise and Diaz, this also stars Maggie Grace, Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, and Viola Davis. So far this looks good. I like that they seem to be selling the action in this more than comedy. Bring it on! Knight & Day, formerly known as Wichita or Trouble Man, is directed by New York-born filmmaker James Mangold, of 3:10 to Yuma, Walk »

Hold on. I can't start this until I stop laughing. Okay, so some of you who checked out Avatar this weekend might have been unlucky enough to catch the trailer for Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise.s latest movie Knight and Day. Here.s the official synopsis: In Knight & Day, Cruise and Diaz have a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure, where nothing and no one - even the now fugitive couple - are what they seem. Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust. Sounds pretty glib, huh? The trailer isn.t much better. What is fantastic though, is the movie.s unintentionally hilarious poster. Please explain to me how a studio spends enough money to make an action film starring Diaz, Cruise, Maggie Grace, Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, and Viola Davis and yet doesn »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
I have always struggled with the notion that perhaps movies, as a whole, are getting worse. As anyone who has seen what’s been playing for the past ten years will notice, there’s plenty of evidence to indicate that the brightness from the moving pictures is getting darker. Screenwriters and directors are sticking to formulas when hesitant to experiment with their creative juices, and at the same time, big studios are playing it safe by adapting anything in sight. But while many movies crowd up the marquee like a group of regular students with satisfying GPAs, cinema has still been able to continue thanks to true poindexters of the art, those who craft experiences so fulfilling and basically perfect that the deconstruction of “the movies” seems to still be a myth. With films like Talk to Her, Superbad, and There Will Be Blood, »

Two eagerly awaited films will appear at Christmas and year's end; Ragnar Bragason's Mr. Bjarnfredarson and Fridrik Thor Fridriksson's Mamma Gogo. The former, a culmination of Iceland's most popular TV series ever, The Night Shift, The Day Shift and The Prison Shift, stars Jon Gnarr, Petur Jóhann Sigfusson and Jorundur Ragnarsson. Mr. Bjarnfredarson is a darkly comic redemption story spanning almost fifty years, with emphasis on Georg (Gnarr), an over educated know-it-all, that has just been released from jail, but is still a prisoner of his own past. - Iceland Film Scene – Local: Business: As the year comes to an end, the local scene has been quiet on the surface, but behind the curtains the filmmaking community has been lobbying the authorities to reduce the drastic proposed 34% cut for film funding in the 2010 budget, a measure set to turn the industry upside down.

Opens: July 23rd 2010
Director: Jay Roach
Summary: A renowned publisher encourages his friends to invite the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party. Just as they find the most pathetic man yet, the host is injured and ends up trapped with the man all night long.
Analysis: A remake of director Francis Veber's 1998 César award-winning "Le Diner des cons", 'Schmucks' is one of the highest profile comedies of next year with one of the strongest casts for the genre in recent memory. It also marks the return of "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Parents" helmer Jay Roach who has produced several films in recent years but hasn't directed since 2004's "Meet the Fockers".
The question now lies not in the performers or director but the material itself and whether a Gallic comedy can »
