The Top 10 Movies Of 2010: Josh's Take

31 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Are you top ten-ed out? Probably? But damn it, I didn't see a zillion movies this year (Ok, around 150) to not earn the right to subject you to a list of my 10 favorites. Honestly this list is probably more for me than for you guys. As we head into the awards season (People's Choice is just days away, get your powder blue tux ready!), what better way to get into the right mindset of endless accolades than to bestow my own. So here we go folks... the top 10 films of 2010* according to me.

*List void on January 1st when I'll surely change my mind about a few of these.

Top 10 (In Alphabetical Order)...

"127 Hours"

At face value a gimmick of a film, but so much more in the hands of Danny Boyle. By turns contemplative, visceral, epic and intimate, "127 Hours" added up to one of the more moving pieces of cinema this year (and, »

Adam Whyte’s Top 10 Film’s of 2010

30 December 2010 3:02 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Matt here…

Adam Whyte joined Obsessed With Film in April of this year and has contributed regular feature articles and reviews from Scotland. This year he attended the Edinburgh Film Festival, reporting daily reports of all that he saw and writing several excellent full length reviews. It’s my hope he will once again attend the festival for us this year and continue his superb writings on movies past, present and future for us.

I particularly love the Top Ten of the year he has turned in here with great detailed reasons why the following are the best he saw in 2010. And having seen and very much enjoyed all the films on the list, I certainly concur…

10. Shutter Island

I have seen every movie Martin Scorsese has made, and I do not believe any of them are outright bad. Few would argue that his latest “Shutter Island” is up there »

10 Best Movie Quotes Of 2010

30 December 2010 8:13 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The most memorable movie lines require three things: They must sound like something a real person (or at least the character uttering them) would, you know, actually say; they must be smarter, funnier and snappier than what a real person would actually say (this sounds like it would contradict the first point, but it doesn't); and they must have a great actor to give them a great delivery. It's a delicate balance, and one that takes both skill -- and a tiny bit of luck -- to achieve.

This year was packed with plenty of ear-pleasing, intensely quotable movie quotes, ranging from the highbrow ("The Social Network" and "True Grit") to the not-so-highbrow ("The Other Guys" and "Machete"). Some movies -- here's looking at you, "Social Network" -- were so full of amazing one-liners and witty exchanges that I could have made a top 10 list just drawing from them. But in the interest of fairness, »

Film Feature: The 10 Best Films of 2010, Part Two

30 December 2010 5:14 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – On the heels of HollywoodChicago.com’s 10 Best Films of 2010 by Brian Tallerico and Top Overlooked Films of 2010 by Matt Fagerholm, I offer the 10 Best Films of 2010, Part Two, by Patrick McDonald.

It’s hard to compare years. Moods, attitudes and experiences dictates so much of how choices are made, interacting with the particular cinema art of the year. But 2010, with a few exceptions, in general didn’t have the excitement of other years. The risks were less risky, the unusual narratives hard to find. The film business is just that, a business, and with so much changing so fast there will continue be more decisions coming from the marketing department and less from the creative one.

However, the 10 Best moves on, and the list is below. Since I begin with a film nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at last year’s Oscars (but not released in Chicago »

Dave Roper – 2010 – A Year in Highlights

29 December 2010 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I have been asked a couple of times how I came to be writing for HeyUGuys and I confess I am not sure how the ball got rolling. A tweet from the site saying that they were looking to recruit more writers somehow found its way into my Twitter feed and I promptly e-mailed in, expressing my enthusiasm to get involved. A few short weeks and a load of frenetic film writing later and I was on board and happy as a pig in muck. I love writing and I love films and the opportunity to combine both every day for a site as well regarded as this one is a real privilege. I have been writing for the site now since the summer, almost entirely in reporting the news, but occasionally dipping into DVD reviews. It is great fun and a thoroughly enjoyable challenge to my burgeoning writing skills »

Kim Hye-ja, Catfish, Dogtooth In; The King's Speech Out: Online Film Critics Surprises

27 December 2010 1:45 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Inception Nominees for the Online Film Critics Society 2010 Awards are an eclectic bunch. They range from the expected (The Social Network, Natalie Portman, James Franco, Christopher Nolan) to the unusual (Mother's Kim Hye-ja, screenwriters Michael Bacall and Edgar Wright for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Dogtooth up for Best Foreign Language Film, the documentary Catfish). [List of Online Film Critics Society nominations.] Mostly, however, the Online Film Critics' list matches those of other awards-season groups. Except that Tom Hooper's acclaimed The King's Speech, the one movie that could beat The Social Network at the Oscars, failed to be shortlisted in the Best Film and Best Director categories. Screenwriter David Seidler, however, made the cut, and so did Best Actor Colin Firth and Best Supporting Actor Geoffrey Rush. (But not Helena Bonham Carter.) Another curious omission was that of Blue Valentine's Michelle Williams, considering that her [...] »

24 Hours of Mandom at Butt-Numb-a-Thon 12

27 December 2010 8:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

This year, I was privileged and honored to be in the audience for Harry Knowles's 12th annual 24-hour birthday party and film festival known as Butt-Numb-a-Thon, or Bnat for short. The 24-hour movie marathon took place this year from Saturday morning, Dec. 11 through midday on Sunday, Dec. 12 at Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar (mostly).

An audience of approximately 200 people from around the world is chosen personally by Knowles from among thousands of applicants who submit questionnaires to gauge their love of films from all genres but especially those that fit the year's chosen theme -- this year it was "Mandom." Nearly half of those attending submitted a video of their own versions of the 1970s Charles Bronson "Mandom" cologne commercials, singing the Mandom theme song. Even Harry's close friends and family must submit their applications in order to attend.

Participants spend more than 24 hours in a theater (more than one this year, »

Scott Feinberg’S Top 10 Films Of ’10

26 December 2010 7:59 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Please Note: The following rankings and remarks reflect my personal opinions and do/will not in any way impact my projections or analysis on this site, wherein I strive above all else to correctly forecast what will happen, not what I believe should happen. My demonstrated ability to do that over the years is what has led most of you to my site, and any failure to do that will undoubtedly lead you away from it, so you can rest assured that I mean it when I say that one has/will have no bearing on the other.

Scott Feinberg’s Top 10 Films of 2010

1. “The Social Network” (Columbia, 10/1, PG-13, trailer)

I distinctly remember sitting in a movie theater over the summer when the first teaser for “the Facebook movie” began playing, prompting groans and snickering all around me — stuff along the lines of, “What’s it gonna be about? A server crashing? »

Morning Meme: John Barrowman Needs a Manny, Richard Chamberlain Advises Actors To Stay Closeted, and Ricky Martin "Shine"s

24 December 2010 5:39 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

This interview with John Barrowman is just a sea of quick quotes worth reading, from his feelings on critics, the fact that he’s expecting seven more years of Torchwood and living six months a year in Hollywood, to his wealth and the fact that he’s still trying to convince Scott to adopt. Well worth the read.

I’ve been curious about Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Broadway production of The Book of Mormon. Vogue calls it “hands down, the filthiest, most offensive, and—surprise—sweetest thing you’ll see on Broadway this year, and quite possibly the funniest musical ever.”

I really don’t know what to say about the Skinimax-style video for Enrique Inglesias’ “Tonight.” Boobs, lesbian sex, bondage, but somehow almost no beefcake. The video is definitely Nsfw.

Good news about the upcoming Muppet movie: Michael Cera is not playing Walter, the new Muppet. Lady Gaga »

Geek Gift Countdown: Wholphin Subscription

23 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I know what you’re thinking. “What the eff is a wholphin? And who the hell wants a subscription (to it or anything else for that matter) for Christmas?” These are both valid questions, but I’m going to have to ask you to calm the hell down before I can continue. Better? Good. Wholphin is the gift that keeps on giving (for a year) and is sure to please all if not some of the movie-lovers in your life. Big names, short films, all packed onto a quarterly DVD from the fine folks at McSweeney’s! Wholphin Subscription Wholphin is a quarterly DVD magazine published by McSweeney’s, lovingly encoded with unique and ponderable films designed to make you feel the way we felt when we learned that dolphins and whales sometimes, you know, do it.” That description from the McSweeney’s people much sums up the Wholphin experience fairly well.

Morning Meme: Nom is Back to Spreading Lies, Paula Abdul Brings Beefcake, and was Jeff Bridges High at the Oscars?

23 December 2010 5:20 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A couple days ago, I mentioned that Modern Family might be doing something extraordinary with a plotline about Mitchell’s assistant. I put too much into that, because it’s going to be so much less than I hoped for. But really, that’s my fault, because what I imagined didn’t really fit the show.

To my Brits, I’m afraid that Rupert Murdoch is going to get to buy the rest of BSkyB, so you’re getting your own Fox News, complete with fake footage and a political agenda. Enjoy!

The Dallas Voice has named councilman Joel Burns Lgbt Person of the Year. Now can he win Texan of the Year?

Well, this is unexpected. Gm is buying oil soaked boom from the Gulf oil spill and turning it into plastic components for the electric Chevrolet Volt. That’s about as much “good” as was possible from the whole incident, »

Emily Blunt To Wield an Axe in Time Travelling Killers Film Looper

22 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

While out promoting Gulliver’s Travels, actress Emily Blunt dropped some details on the violent time travelling film Looper, also starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt. Not much is known at this time about Looper other than the plot synopsis from IMDb states that it's "Set in a near future, a group of killers (called Loopers) work for a crime syndicate in the future. Director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) is helming the project from a screenplay that he also wrote and the film appears to have a very well rounded cast including the likes of Emily Blunt, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Paul Dano. “It’s sort of post-apocalypto time travel, time-traveling world where it’s a dog-eat-dog world, [...] And it’s set in sort of 2050 or 2060, that sort of time, when the »

Emily Blunt to Play an Axe-Wielding Farm Girl in ‘Looper’

22 December 2010 4:01 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While doing the press rounds for new movie, Gulliver’s Travels, Emily Blunt spoke to MTV about another production she’s been working on, the time-traveling flick, Looper. Directed by Rian Johnson (Brick) it co-stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, and Paul Dano.

No stranger to diverse film roles (she’s played everything from a hard-nosed personal assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, to a Queen in The Young Victoria), Blunt‘s next role involves working closely with an axe and getting her hands dirty.

“It’s sort of post-apocalypto time travel, time-traveling world where it’s a dog-eat-dog world, [...] And it’s set in sort of 2050 or 2060, that sort of time, when the world has gone to s***.”

No further plot details were revealed (although rumour is it revolves around a group of time-travelling killers aptly named ‘loopers’) but she did mention that the majority of her scenes are shared with Inception star, »

Staff Picks: Breanne L. Heldman’s Top 10 Movies of 2010

21 December 2010 4:00 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

I must confess – I genuinely think 2010 was a good year in movies.

Of course, I’m not simply basing that on a series of obviously stellar performances and the number of films deserving of awards recognition. And I’m not making my list after staring at a bunch of pundits’ thoughts on the matter.

My favorite movies are ones that either make me feel something real and physical (and not just that sense of “I’m so smart. I saw that little indie”) or that I’m inclined to watch over and over. Better yet, I like my movies to do both, and it’s a tall order.

So sure, I really enjoyed and appreciated “The King’s Speech” and “The Social Network” – I’m an Aaron Sorkin fan, after all – but they didn’t make enough of an emotional impact and I can’t picture myself popping the disc »

Emily Blunt says she will “wield an ax and shoot a gun” in Looper

One project to keep on your radar is Looper from Brick and The Brothers Bloom director Rian Johnson.

Emily Blunt Talks Time-Travel Flick 'Looper,' Co-Starring Bruce Willis And Joseph Gordon-Levitt

21 December 2010 8:18 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Emily Blunt has played a lot of wildly different parts in her career -- a cutthroat magazine assistant in "The Devil Wears Prada," a crime-scene spiffer-upper in "Sunshine Cleaning," the queen of England in "The Young Victoria" and now, in "Gulliver's Travels" (in theaters December 25), the thimble-sized princess of Liliput. But she's never before -- to our knowledge at least-- played an ax-wielding, time-traveling, futuristic farm girl.

As the sassy actress told MTV News at the press junket for "Gulliver's Travels," she'll do exactly that in the upcoming sci-fi time-travel thriller "Looper." Written and directed by visionary "Brick" filmmaker Rian Johnson, "Looper" also stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, with both actors playing the same man in different time periods.

"It's sort of post-apocalypto time travel, time-traveling world where it's a dog-eat-dog world," Blunt said of the film. "And it's set in sort of 2050 or 2060, that sort of time, when »

Inception Blu-Ray Review

17 December 2010 11:33 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I may not have liked Inception quite as much as a lot of people, but I have to admit (as I have been known to say frequently) I would rather see people try to do something great and fail (or not quite get there), than sit through yet another example of trying to do something mindlessly aimed at the lowest common denominator and succeed brilliantly.

While I think Nolan ultimately ran away with himself (see full review below), and could have used some other sounding board (brilliant things can be tricky to understand... so too nonsensical things), I also think he is nevertheless one of the most talented filmmakers working today. It may have folded over on itself too many times, but the film is still a fun adventure with amazing visuals, and thoroughly entertaining.

The release is somewhat light on bonuses, especially considering it is the film everyone was »

Tron: Legacy

17 December 2010 7:01 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Tron: Legacy

Directed by: Joseph Kosinski

Cast: Garrett Hedlund, Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, Michael Sheen

Running Time: 2 hr 6 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: December 12, 2010

Kersten’s Top 7 Movies (20 yrs+) That Deserve Sequels

McLaughlin’s Top 7 Movies (20 yrs+) That Should Never Have Sequels

Plot: Years ago, Kevin Flynn (Bridges) disappeared. Now his son Sam (Hedlund) stumbles onto the mystery of what happened to his father and ends up inside the grid to this sequel from 1982′s Tron.

Who’S It For? Those who loved the first one. Plus, anyone who wants to see something visually spectacular. You also have to be willing to sit through some slow parts.

Expectations: I loved the idea of a sequel to the 80s flick but then again Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps didn’t work out. So, I assumed I would like what I saw, but not much else.

Scorecard (0-10)

Actors:

What are the Biggest Surprises/Snubs from Today's SAG Award Nominations?

16 December 2010 8:45 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dileep Rao, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Ken Watanabe in Inception

Photo: Warner Bros. This morning's Screen Actors Guild nominations (click here for the full list) have already got commenters fired up and it seems the number one complaint is the absence of Inception from the list of Best Ensemble Cast nominations. The five nominees in the category were Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids are All Right, The King's Speech and The Social Network. Of these five there is only one surprise in my mind and that's Black Swan, a film that also saw Mila Kunis nominated in Best Supporting Actress, but we'll get to that in a second.

As for the Inception "snub", I'm not in the same camp as the many commenters in thinking it was snubbed for Best Ensemble, but I will admit it is more deserving than Black Swan, a film »
