The Hollywood Reporter & Variety Critics Name Their Top 10 Films Of 2014

27 minutes ago

With all the major movies opening in 2014 having been seen, and with the new year on the horizon, the last of the year-end lists are coming (check out all of ours right here). And as you've noticed, the last few weeks have seen no shortage of folks weigh in. But what about the people in the Hollywood trades? Well, the critics from the two biggest daily providers of all that's moving and shaking in tinseltown have dropped their roundups of the best of what this year had to offer. Over at The Hollywood Reporter, Todd McCarthy found much to love in international cinema this year, shouting out a small handful of movies from across the ocean. So too did Scott Foundas and Justin Chang at Variety, while all three found plenty to love from Hollywood as well. Overall, there are no major surprises to found here, particularly in this late stage of the year. »

Watch: Relive The Year’s Movie Moments With 6-Minute 'Cinefile 2014'

1 hour ago

2014 was definitely an interesting year for movies, as an exciting amount of great films (“Interstellar,” “Birdman,” “Boyhood,” “Nightcrawler”) went head-to-head with a not-so-surprising assortment of garbage (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction”). Now you can experience them all again in YouTube user Miguel Branco’s fast-paced and cleverly-edited equal opportunity ode to 2014 releases, titled “Cinefile 2014.” Branco cuts various lines and shots together in such a seamless way as to bind these works together as a whole. Even though it looks like the shots were picked at random, there’s a deliberate structure to the video, as explained in this detailed breakdown. Able to create a sense of nostalgia for a year that’s not over yet, “Cinefile 2014” proves to be a remarkable cinematic tribute. Also, it reminds us that there are still lots of great films from 2014 that we need to catch up with. »

'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Will Get Undressed At The Berlin International Film Festival

1 hour ago

Lest you think "Fifty Shades Of Grey" is just some more smut from Hollywood's sleaze machine, the adaptation of the erotic best-seller had hunky lead Jamie Dornan doing some honest-to-God research for his role as a corporate executive with some very kinky stock benefit options — the actor fearlessly went to a sex dungeon.  "I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did…whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives," he told Elle UK, noting that it was a more light-hearted experience than he was expecting, but still a dirty one. "I was like: 'Come on guys I know I'm not paying for this but I am expecting a show.' It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards... I had a long shower before touching either of them."  Whether or not audiences will also »

"It’s Going To Be Distributed": Sony Says 'The Interview' Will Be Released, But Not On Crackle

2 hours ago

It may have been the last shopping weekend before Christmas, but for the folks at Sony, they've been busy dealing with the lump of coal the controversy around Seth Rogen and James Franco's "The Interview" has brought them. The story seems to change by the hour, and has even seen folks like George Clooney and President Obama weigh in, but Sony has been going on the offensive lately. First, they hit back at the President's comments that the studio "made a mistake" in pulling the release of the movie, clarifying that it was actually cinema owners who forced their hand by refusing to play the film, and adding that no VOD company stepped up to take on the movie either. And then over the weekend, Sony's attorney David Boies hit NBC’s "Meet The Press" to say that "The Interview" will still be coming. “Sony only delayed this,” he »

Review: 'Night at the Museum: Secret Of The Tomb' With Ben Stiller, Dan Stevens, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams & More

2 hours ago

As far as hooky family movie conceits go, the "Night at the Museum" franchise is centered around a pretty adorable one (one that, it should be noted, is based on a 32-page children's book of the same name by Milan Trenc): thanks to an enchanted tablet, every night after dark, the exhibits at the American Museum of Natural History come to life. A night watchman, played by Ben Stiller, finds out the secret and has to keep all of the museum's inhabitants inside the museum. For a single movie, even under the artless direction of Shawn Levy, the idea played well, especially with a supporting cast stocked with comedic heavyweights like Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais and Dick Van Dyke. With the original film, there was enough genuine whimsy to sustain, but now, with the third film, "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," even »
