10 Memorable Movie Quotes from 2010

31 December 2010 11:48 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I just thought I'd throw out a top 10 list of memorable movie quotes from 2010. There were a some great films this year most of them included some great quotes. Personally, I think it would be very easy to fill up this list of just quotes from The Social Network, it was easily the best screenplay of the year. But, I thought I'd mix it up a bit and throw in quotes from several other films as well. These are quotes that just stuck with me, most of them made me laugh. Check out my list, and then let me know what some of your favorite movie quotes of the year were. 

10. " I think I'm confused, but I'm not sure!" - Kayvan Novak, Four Lions

9. "I don't know how to play chess, but to me, life is like a game of chess." - Thierry Guetta, Exit Through the Gift Shop

8. "You're really ruining my Zen thing, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

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, »

Actor Stellan Skarsgard Discusses His Roles in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo & Thor

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

The acclaimed thespian speaks out about playing Martin Vanger in David Fincher's American remake and Dr. Andrews in Kenneth Branagh's comic book adaptation. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is based off of the first book out of the critically acclaimed Millennium Trilogy, which has already spurred three successful Swedish films. Here is a brief synopsis of the story: Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle (Christopher Plummer) continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara). Together they tap into a vein of »

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? »

The Social Network Tops La Weekly/indieWIRE 2010 Critics' Poll

25 December 2010 6:51 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Rooney Mara, Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network David Fincher's drama about the creation of Facebook, The Social Network, topped the 2010 L.A. Weekly/indieWIRE poll of 85 American critics. It was followed by Olivier Assayas' made-for-tv miniseries Carlos (screened at theaters in the United States); Debra Granik's family drama Winter's Bone, which topped the Gotham Awards; and Roman Polanski's mystery thriller The Ghost Writer, which swept the 2010 European Film Awards. Last year, Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker was the favorite awards-season movie. Yet, it landed in third place in the L.A. Weekly/indieWIRE poll, behind Olivier Assayas' Summer Hours and Joel Coen and Ethan Coen's A Serious Man. In 2008, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire won nearly every critics' group's awards in North America, but at the top of the L.A. Weekly/indieWIRE poll was Hou Hsiao-hsien's The Flight of the Red Balloon, »

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, »

What were your favorite movie scenes of 2010?

21 December 2010 1:00 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When I eventually look back at 2010, I’ll reflect upon the films that mattered, the films that dared to be different, and the films that made an impact on my heart and mind. But as time goes on, my impressions of many of my favorite films will inevitably be boiled down to a series of spectacular moments. For example, I revere The Silence of the Lambs, and I’ve seen it enough times to know it by heart. But there’s one scene that encapsulates my experience with those characters. You know the scene. Other times, that keystone scene isn’t so universal, »

Glee’s Heather Morris Being Considered for Won’t-Go-Away Buffy Reboot

21 December 2010 9:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Having dedicated one of my precious Truffles (The “You’re hiring Adam Sandler Again” award for the The Worst Possible News of 2010, to be exact) to the news that a Buffy reboot was still in the works – and having made my opinion of said reboot particularly clear - it is with great disappointment that I must report that a number of actresses are currently being considered for the role.

One such contender is Heather Morris, best known for her role as clueless Cheerio Brittany Pierce on  Fox’s Glee. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Glee and find Morris very entertaining in the role, I simply find it difficult to imagine her living up to the icon most famously played by Sarah Michelle Gellar.

This does not, however, mean that she will necessarily be cast as the titular vampire slayer, recently re-imagined by one Whit Anderson. Amid praising »

21 December 2010 1:00 AM, PST | movies.about.com | See recent About.com Hollywood Movies news »

In a press release announcing The Social Network's win, festival chairman Harold Matzner said, "Every so often, a movie comes along with performances that set the standard for a generation of actors. The Social Network combines a theme that defines our time with performances that redefine acting for the screen. The Social Network is important not because it is about this current moment in history, but because the human motivations of the »

Hollywood's Highest-Grossing Actors of 2010. It's the No. 2 finisher who will surprise you.

20 December 2010 2:45 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

2010 is nearly over, which means plenty of publications (including ours) are releasing an endless supply of year-end lists. (People of the year, celebrities of the year, movies of the year, squirrels in your backyard of the year, etc.) And today, Forbes has released their list of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Actors in 2010.

Quite predictably, blockbuster king Leonardo DiCaprio tops this year’s list — which is purely based on box office intake, and does not count animated films — with $1.1 billion, thanks to turns in the highly successful Shutter Island and Inception. But the list’s No. 2 finisher is the most shocking: 21-year-old up-and-coming Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska. »

The most degrading film of 2010: The Tooth Fairy
