The Hot Blog: David Poland claims that “True Grit,” the Coen brothers Western, “has muscled its way into the frontrunner slot to win best picture” as a result of its solid box-office performance over the long Christmas weekend. (It generated $36.1 million, good enough for second place behind “Little Fockers,” which brought in only $9 million more.) Methinks Poland is too smart to actually believe that and is just hoping to generate some late phase one traffic to his site and/or be the one guy who made a crazy pick that somehow came true (as Tom O’Neil attempted last year with “Inglourious Basterds”). Jeff Wells (here) and Sasha Stone (here) seem to concur.

It’s always tricky for the Sound On Sight staff to choose their favourite films each year. Since we have contributors across the globe and because many movies have different release dates in various countries, there’s always a few movies that not everyone on our team has the opportunity to watch. These films have a disadvantage. since half of the team can’t vote for them, and so sometimes their is one or two great films that just don’t make it in. However I do believe that each and every year the eclectic mix of movies that appear on our list, really does show how much ground we cover. On our list this year you will find three Canadian films, several genre films, a few foreign language films and a bit of the mainstream. Each Sound On Sight critic submits a list of their ten favourite films in order of preference. »
Chicago – Some films never get a fair shot with audiences. They open in a handful of art house theaters scattered throughout the country before inconspicuously landing on DVD. Passionate movie lovers are left with the task of championing these unjustly obscure titles and helping them to acquire the audience they deserve. Before I reveal my picks for the top five films of 2010 that you probably didn’t see, here are the 10 runners-up.

The feisty, ever-questioning spirit of Carl Sagan is alive and well in Alejandro Amenabar’s fascinating and haunting historical epic. “Agora” functions as somewhat of an antithesis to “Passion of the Christ,” portraying the ancient ideological battles between Pagans and Christians with complexity, intelligence and a refusal to exploit its inherent violence. Rachel Weisz is at the peak of her radiance as Hypatia, a female scholar specializing in astronomy, philosophy and common sense. »

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: »

Edgar Ramirez in Olivier Assayas' Carlos Jesse Eisenberg, Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes, Jacki Weaver: La Weekly/indieWIRE 2010 Critics' Poll David Fincher's The Social Network may have been the L.A. Weekly/indiewire poll's top 2010 movie, but Olivier Assayas was its Best Director for Carlos. Runners-up included Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and Roman Polanski (The Ghost Writer). Aaron Sorkin's screenplay for The Social Network was the expected Best Screenplay favorite, but Maren Ade's work on Everyone Else was a surprise at no. 2. Everyone Else hasn't popped up on any of the North American critics' groups' 2010 award lists. Just as curious, frequent critics' award winner David Seidler (The King's Speech) is to be found at no. 12. Banksy's Exit Through the Gift Shop and Lee Unkrich's Toy Story 3 topped the Best Documentary and Best Animated Feature lists. They've also been critics' groups' favorites as well. »

Both Bale and Leo have topped most critics' groups lists in their respective categories. Below is the L.A. Weekly/indieWIRE poll's top twelve in the acting categories. The first number is the "weighted vote." The second number is how often the performance in question was mentioned by critics: Best Actor Jesse Eisenberg, »

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… »

Barca and Pietros from Spartacus: Blood and Sand
Can I ask a serious question? How come, in an era of explicit online pornography, a hot bare bum or passionate gay sex scene in a mainstream movie or TV show still has the ability to drive us so wild? Is it the principle of "less is more" — because they don't show us everything, what we do see is that much more exciting? Or does it have something to do with the fact that we're seeing celebrity flesh, which is the ultimate forbidden fruit?
Whatever the reason, it does drive us wild.
When it comes to male nudity, as well as gay sex in the movies and on TV, gay and bisexual male viewers have waiting a looooong time for anything approaching equal time between naked female and male actors. Clearly, straight male producers and directors have been calling the shots for far too long. »

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.
And that includes movie critics — critics who, like their American counterparts, have just announced that “The King’s Speech” and “The Social Network” lead their award nominations.
Yes, the list of nominees for the 31st annual London Critics’ Circle awards is topped by “The King’s Speech,” while “The Social Network” landed five and the British drama “Another Year” grabbed six.
“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, »
