Finally, My Best Movies Of 2010! Why It's All About Characters!

27 December 2010 6:30 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Below is my written article (after the jump) on the Best Movies of 2010, listed per film in alphabetical order.

2010 was a great year at the movies. Both Hollywood and independent cinema offered thought-provoking gems that thrilled and entertained us. Because of the over-abundance of quality filmmaking, I decided that this year, I will forego with the annual Top 10 and instead, give you a list of the very Best Movies of 2010 (in alphabetical order):

.127 Hours. . .Slumdog Millionaire. vets, screenwriter Simon Beaufoy and co-writer/director Danny Boyle, reteamed to give us a haunting and oddly uplifting film about Aron Ralston, the mountain climber trapped under a boulder. James Franco gave one of the most brilliant performances of the year. ("127 Hours" movie review, "127 Hours" interviews with Simon Beaufoy, Danny Boyle, and James Franco)

.Biutiful. . Alejandro González Iñárritu (.Babel,. .Amores Perros,. .21 Grams.) tells a touching tale of a man in search of redemption. »

The best feature films of 2010

26 December 2010 11:23 PM, PST | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

David Fincher's "The Social Network"is emerging as the consensus choice as best film of 2010. Most of the critics' groups have sanctified it, and after its initial impact it has only grown it stature. I think it is an early observer of a trend in our society, where we have learned new ways of thinking of ourselves: As members of a demographic group, as part of a database, as figures in...a social network.

My best films list also appears on my main site, but I am posting it here on the blog so that you can comment on it. In response to the reader protests of recent years, I've returned to the time-honored tradition of ten films arranged in order from one to ten. After that, it's all alphabetical. The notion of objectively ordering works of art seems bizarre to me.

Here are the year's best feature films: »

Trailer: ‘Hanna’

26 December 2010 12:31 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Yahoo released the trailer for one of my most anticipated movies of next year, Hanna directed by Joe Wright.  The film tells the story of Hanna (Saoirse Ronan), raised by her father (Eric Bana) to become an assassin.  The film also stars Cate Blanchett, presumably playing the villain, and Olivia Williams.  A couple things intrigued me about this project when it was first announced.  The script made the Black List, Hollywood’s annual yearly list of the best unproduced screenplays, in 2006 and 2009.  However the more intriguing thing was the fact that Wright, who directed Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, was directing.  Atonement was a big step forward from Pride & Prejudice and I look forward to seeing what he can do with an action movie.  He is clearly not interested in repeating himself.  The trailer looks really promising and I am already looking forward to the soundtrack alone, as it is being scored by The Chemical Brothers. »

2010 Look Back at the Year in Film

24 December 2010 9:10 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: Let us begin our look back at the year in film with a token acknowledgement of ten films whose reputations did not proceed them. For the record, not all of the films below are bad pictures. But they all generated critical and/or audience esteem that they perhaps did not entirely earn. There is nothing wrong with overpraising a good film. It often emanates from a hunger for quality that often causes we the critics to look at a merely solid and/or competent piece of cinema and hail it as a groundbreaking work of art. The following are in alphabetical order.

The Ghost Writer

The release of this film timed so conveniently with the arrest of director Roman Polanski that the reception of this film seemed to fall into two categories: ‘a triumphant thriller from a master artist’ and/or ‘the new movie by that kiddie-rapist’. Truth be told, »

Check out the first trailer for action thriller Hanna starring Saoirse Ronan

23 December 2010 4:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Saoirse Ronan has been building quite a name for herself since bursting onto the scene with her Academy Award-nominated supporting turn in Atonement (2007), following this up with roles in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones (2008) and Peter Weir's soon-to-be-released WW2 epic The Way Back (2010). The young Irish actress will next turn her hand to action, reuniting with Atonement director Joe Wright for the adventure thriller Hanna, which has just received its first trailer earlier this week.

Ronan stars as the titular Hanna, a 14 year-old who has been raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-cia spy, to be a the perfect assassin. After completing her training, Hanna is sent out into the world on a dangerous mission, journeying across Europe while eluding hostile agents dispatched by a ruthless intelligence agent (Cate Blanchett). Also featuring in the cast are Tom Hollander (Valkyrie) and Olivia Williams (An Education), while Brit dance »

“The King’s Speech” Leads Nominations for the London’s Critics’ Circle Awards

21 December 2010 8:18 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

More awards news now, and it comes from the London’s Critics’ Circle who announced the nominations for their 31st Film Awards, which will be held on February the 10th.

The King’S Speech won out over The Social Network this time around, garnering 8 nominations, including two for Colin Firth and his portrayal of King George VI, one in Actor of the Year and British Actor of the Year. True Grit was also given some well-deserved kudos, getting nominations for actor Jeff Bridges, newcomer Hailee Steinfield, and directors Joel and Ethan Cohen. Toy Story 3 also managed to grab a spot in the Sky 3D Award: Film of the Year line up, and indie movie The Arbor secured a coveted spot on The Attenborough Award: British Film of the Year list too. But where is Biutiful and Javier Bardem‘s nomination, strange that it seems to be getting left off many awards lists… »

Joe Wright’s Hanna Trailer Starring Saoirse Ronan

21 December 2010 7:36 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

2010 has been a year chock full of espionage-themed thrillers, and it looks like the trend is going to continue throughout 2011 as well. This time acclaimed director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) is getting into the act with Hanna, a spy movie with an interesting twist: the main character is a teenage girl who has been trained to be an assassin by her ex-cia father. Judging from the first trailer it looks kind of like The American meets Salt meets Let Me In. Kind of an interesting mix, right? Although I wasn't a big fan of Atonement and thought The Soloist looked absolutely ridiculous, I'm definitely intrigued by this movie. Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones) is an interesting choice to play a cold-blooded killer, and of course, Eric Bana has already proven that he can play a bad ass spy in Munich. The supporting cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Olivia Williams and Tom Hollander, »

21 December 2010 7:31 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Britain: it’s a lot like America, only in Europe. Everything we have over here — sandwiches, The Beatles, federally mandated health care — they have over there too, except it’s a British version.

“Another Year,” which stars Jim Broadbent and Lesley Manville as an couple in denial about the aging process, was one of several films which got a boost from the fact that the London Critics’ Circle has double nominations for each major category, one for films in general and one specifically for British films. Thus “The King’s Speech, »
