Top Ten Worst Movies of 2010 ...that I saw
I typically don't like making "Worst of" lists because I tend to avoid several films throughout the year that I know I probably wouldn't like. So, when reading through this list just know these are the top ten worst films of the year among those I've seen.
I've perused the lists of others on the internet and noticed titles such as The Bounty Hunter, Marmaduke, Killers, Flipped, Grown-Ups, The Nutcracker In 3D, Little Fockers, Cats and Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore, You Again, Skyline, Yogi Bear, Burlesque, The Last Song, Dear John, Life as We Know It, Vampires Suck or Lottery Ticket. I didn't see any of these and have no intention of seeing them. So please take that into consideration.
However, before we get to the ten there were a few that fell shy of making the list, including The Tourist, »

On the topic of upcoming sequel, Wrath of the Titans, the actor confessed:
“I just think we can improve on it… I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. And yeah, I totally agree. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we’re setting out to do with this one — the writers and the director and myself — is improve. I think I can act f***ing better, to be honest … Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the ‘net and give them a movie they f***ing want. »

Just last week, we brought you a rumor that director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Sucker Punch) wanted British actor Matthew Goode (Burning Man) to play mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent in the Superman reboot. It was also rumored that Snyder had plans to rely heavily on CGI to represent The Man of Steel himself, similar to what they have done with Green Lantern.
Now, the folks over at iesb have thrown their debunking hat into the ring on both counts and say:
“certain studio execs that had the idea of making Superman a CGI character ala Doctor Manhattan. Some others thought the idea would be best if his costume alone was CGI.
“Speaking with an FX pro that is currently working on Green Lantern, he has mentioned that some test shots of what a CGI Superman suit would look like have already been done. While he thinks it’s possible to get a cool look, »

At the start of November, Snyder said he hadn't even thought about casting but a couple of weeks later, it was reported that the studio had begun its search for the next actor who will embody the iconic hero from planet Krypton.
Numerous rumours have linked several actors to the production, and the result has been a mad swirl of internet gossip where truth and fiction have become blurred.
A source now tells The Geek Files that, contrary to reports, "casting has Not started" at Warner Bros.
Our source added that the studio are "not re-creating anything or anyone that has been done or seen before, such as Christopher Reeve or Brandon Routh". The studio is going for "a new look altogether", we were told. »

West Country actor Matthew Goode is emerging as a frontrunner to play the Man of Steel in Zach Snyder forthcoming Superman movie. The 32-year-old Devon-born star, who worked with Snyder in Watchmen, would be a strange choice as he doesn't fit the all-American beefcake template. However, even if he doesn't resemble Christopher Reeve or Brandon Routh, he impressed as the villainous Adrian Veidt aka the superhero Ozymandias in Snyder's Watchmen saga. »
As the weeks roll on, the internet heats up with rumors on who may play the title role for Superman: Man of Steel. According to one source, nothing has begun at all...yet. Since Zack Snyder was named director for Superman: Man of Steel the internet has been in a firestorm as to who would play the man from Krypton. Many names have been thrown out as possible candidates (Matthew Goode, Dwayne Johnson, Matthew Bomer, Henry Cavill, etc...) while some have merely proclaimed interest, or disinterest, for the role (Patrick Wilson, Joe Manganiello, Zac Efron). In a report from The Geek Files it would seem the rumors so far are much ado about nothing: A source now tells The Geek Files that, contrary to reports, "casting has Not started" at Warner Bros. Our source added that the studio were " »

In the week in which Harry Potter broke five UK box office records, we bring you all the stats, and any other film-related news we can, as relief from wall-to-wall wizardry
The trouble with Harry is that he's just everywhere. The seventh instalment in the boy wizard's adventures, the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, finally hit cinemas last Friday. By Monday it was clear writers the world over were going to have to dust off that "audiences have fallen under his spell" cliche yet again. So, let's keep this brief: it broke five records this side of the pond, another couple in the States. For more details, try Charles Gant's UK box office analysis and Jeremy Kay's Hollywood report. And if you want to discuss whether or not it revives the sequel as a format, check out David Cox's blog. Last Friday, too, James Russell wrote a »
There's only one thing worse than Matthew Goode as the Man of Steel – rumours that Snyder plans to 'Avatarise' the film's effects
There can be few tougher casting choices than the one facing Zack Snyder as he plans his forthcoming Superman reboot. While audiences will happily accept awkwardly handsome actors as Batman (Michael Keaton) or, say, The Green Hornet (Seth Rogen), it's almost impossible to cast anyone as the Man of Steel who doesn't fit the all-American mould of the "big blue boy scout". Which is to say, it's almost impossible to cast anyone who doesn't look an awful lot like Christopher Reeve.
Reeve more than owned the role of Superman, even if he only appeared in one and a half decent movies wearing his underpants on the wrong side of his trousers. Brandon Routh can count his lucky stars because, while a decent actor, he would probably still be »

I personally don't believe this story too much, but it's a holiday and I guess it's an "interesting choice" to discuss so allow me to present you with the latest Superman scoop according to MovieNewz.com, a website I'd never heard of before today. According to their sources, director "Snyder wants Matthew Goode to play mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and has plans to rely heavily on CGI for The Man of »
Now that Warner Bros. has announced a director for its next Superman movie -- and while the full title of film yet to be revealed -- speculation has begun on storylines and cast members. The gates have been open and there's no locking them back up again, so let me do a round up of the gossip out there and I'll also offer my commentary and analysis of what's being tossed around:
According to Movie Newz (all the cool kidz use "z" these days), director Zack Snyder wants to work again with the man who played Ozymandias in Watchmen. He's Matthew Goode, a British 32-year-old who was seen by western audiences earlier this year in the romantic comedy Leap Year. Movie Newz cites "sources" which could be anyone: someone in Goode's camp maybe wants to float his name out there since he has a past connection to a Snyder film, »

Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot has begun and so have the rumors! Yesterday we posted the rumor that Matthew Goode could play the lead. The rumor du jour is that Lois Lane may be played by none other than Anne Hathaway.
A site called What’s Playing has posted a story/rumor that Anne Hathaway is under consideration for the role of Lois Lane. She definitely fits the profile, she is in her 20's, brunette and drop dead gorgeous. There are a lot of other actresses that could also fill the role so as for now this remains a rumor.
The interesting part of the story coming from What’s Playing is in reference to the plot. According to them, Clark Kent will be a young, idealistic journalist, travelling the world and trying to solve the problems and help the people he comes across without resorting to using his powers. »
This is going to likely become a daily routine – updating, posting and cross-referencing the various plot and casting rumours surrounding Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot.
Yesterday it was the possibility of Matthew Goode donning the cape, today it is the turn of Lois Lane (not to don the cape you understand, the casting rumours are about her character. Gosh what a plot twist that would be).
The Australian site “What’s Playing” is carrying a story/rumour that Anne Hathaway is being considered for Lois Lane. Whilst that may well be true, it hardly feels that surprising. She is in her 20′s, attractive, talented and a brunette, much like a zillion other suitable candidates, so we’ll wait and see on that one.
What is far more interesting is the story from What’s Playing regarding the plot. They say that Clark Kent will be a young, idealistic journalist, travelling »

Matthew Goode is rumoured to be the frontrunner for the lead role in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot. According to Movie Newz, the Cemetery Junction star is the favourite to portray the Man of Steel in the DC Comics adaptation. Goode and Snyder have previously worked together on Watchmen, in which the actor played Adrian Veidt and his alter ego Ozymandias. (more) »

Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's probably just another rumor about Zack Snyder's Superman. Bits of most-likely-false information about the Snyder directed, Christopher Nolan produced and David Goyer penned Man of Steel reboot have been jumping tall buildings in a single bound over the last few days and now there are so many, it's time to do a roundup. The rumors are as follows: Anne Hathaway might be playing Lois Lane, Matthew Goode might reunite with his Watchmen director to play Clark Kent, the Superman suit will be completely computer generated and West Africa (!?!?) will play a major role in the film. And while most of these tidbits are probably untrue, the fact that they are all coming out at once does, maybe, give them a little more weight. The project is definitely progressing. Read more about each rumor after the jump. Let's »

Last week, it was reported that director Zack Snyder, producer Christopher Nolan, and studio Warner Bros. had begun the casting process for the upcoming Superman reboot. Reportedly, the search was for "an actor in the 28-to-32 age range" who perhaps is an actor from a TV show that "isn't well known yet." If the hard-to-trust rumor mill is to be believed, that person could be British actor Matthew Goode.

The race to find the next Man of Steel is officially on, but is it possible that director Zack Snyder has already found his Clark Kent? That's the case according to a new rumor that pegs British actor Matthew Goode as the front-runner for the role!
Movie Newz reports the rumor of Goode's possible casting, and if there's any truth to the news — and that's a big if at this point — then the actor's involvement would signal something of a "Watchmen" reunion; Goode famously played Adrian "Ozymandias" Veidt in Snyder's adaptation of the classic graphic novel in 2009.
Having already worked with Snyder, on a comic book movie no less, Goode's chances seem better than others when it comes to "Superman." But he's not exactly the most muscular actor in Hollywood, begging the question: does Goode have what it takes to physically embody the Man of Steel?
As it turns out, »

There had already been rumours that Patrick Wilson, who was The Nite Owl in Watchmen, might be in the running and so there is a danger here that anyone who has been in a Zack Snyder film and/or tried on a tights-oriented costume will be hailed as the next top candidate.
Having said that, Goode is reported to have enjoyed working with Snyder previously and although he is a little slight of build, a few factors work in his favour. Firstly, Christopher Reeve was pretty slight when he first auditioned as Superman, but »

While "Batman" supporting cast rumours have flown thick and fast, "Superman" casting talk has remained pretty quiet. "True Blood" actor Joe Manganiello and "Mad Men" leading man Jon Hamm are the online gossip site favourites, but the latter has been ruled out due to age as it has been revealed that the studio is seeking actors around ages 28-32.
The likes of Armie Hammer and Ian Somerhalder have also come up in talk, but one name emerged out of left field today and is actually the most interesting choice thus far - rising British actor Matthew Goode.
Movienewz reports that director Zack Snyder wants his 6'2, 32-year-old "Watchmen" star Goode to play Clark Kent in the film. Goode first came to notice as Mandy Moore's romantic love interest in 2004's "Chasing Liberty" and has since popped up in various roles in films like Woody Allen's "Match Point", Scott Frank »

The Watchmen star is reported to allegedly be the front runner for the title role in the upcoming Superman reboot being directed by Zack Snyder. Many may remember Matthew Goode from his role in the comic book adaptation Watchmen, where he portrayed industrialist-by-day Adrien Veidt and his superhero alter ego Ozymandias. MovieNewz.com is now reporting that the actor may reunite with director Zack Snyder to suit up in another super-role: "According to our sources, Snyder wants Goode to play mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and has plans to rely heavily on CGI for The Man of Steel. Essentially this means Superman could be a CG enhanced character, similar to what Warner Bros. is doing with the Green Lantern costume. This would certainly eliminate the need to cast based on the physical »

With 'Superman' returning (again), the superhero rumor mill has been in overdrive with many far-out notions that have no semblance of truth and some toeing a much closer line to reality. Everyone from professional wrestlers to Matthew Goode (the less-than-stellar Ozymandias in 'Watchmen') has been linked to the gig, though young folks might soon be considered since Zack Snyder has been quoted as saying that his flick will focus on "the early days of Superman."
Now Australia's What's Playing claims to have the inside scoop on the affair. In this reboot angle, the story does focus on the younger days of Superman, but it's also a whole lot more about Clark Kent and a whole lot less about Superman as the tight-adorned superhero.
