Whitney Houston, Jennie Rivera and more of 2012's Gone but Not Forgotten

31 December 2012 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As a new year dawns, a tribute to those we've lost in the year now ending is merited ... and in 2012, those sad milestones have encompassed some of the most popular personalities in television history.

Andy Griffith: The actor-producer who put Mayberry on the map forever will be remembered as one of television's most genial personalities, also extending to his run as wily lawyer Matlock.

Dick Clark: The number of music stars who owe at least part of their success to the "American Bandstand" maestro is incalculable. Thanks to him, people also enjoy "New Year's Rockin' Eve," receive American Music Awards and have a greater appreciation of bloopers. Here's a "so long" salute to you, Dick.

Larry Hagman: The truly unfortunate irony of the veteran actor's recent death is that he was just starting his second round of "Dallas" success as master schemer J.R. Ewing. He'll also »

Box office report 2012: Film industry climbs to record-breaking $10.8 billion

31 December 2012 9:38 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The economy may be teetering on the edge of a fiscal cliff, but such dire financial woes were nowhere to be found at the box office in 2012. Over the past 365 days, Americans spent many of their hard-earned dollars at the movies — paying to see everything from Channing Tatum’s abs to a foul-mouthed talking teddy bear, and as a result, the box office had its best* year ever.

Movie theaters sold an estimated $10.84 billion worth of tickets domestically in 2012, beating the previous record of $10.59 billion set in 2009 (when Avatar led a late-December surge), and marking a new record in terms »

27 December 2012 7:20 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Mirror Mirror has one of the best.

Can Armie's jacket beat all the rest?

By in large, women in the 21st century have more opportunities to wear fancy and elaborate clothing than men have. But this year plenty of men in fancy outerwear were featured at the cineplex, and we decided to see which coat was best and create the Reelzie Award for Best Fancy Coat on a Male Actor.

The Top 8 Horror Films of 2012 - Ryan's Picks

23 December 2012 2:25 PM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Look for a "best of 2012" list from each of Shock's contributing writers throughout the week!

Optimism has been renewed.  Things might be looking up for horror.  For the last two years or so, I always frowned at the task of creating a year-end “top 10” list.  It got to a point where I felt compelled to par back and draft only a “top five.”  This year, however, I break the norm and present eight films.  I’m happy to say coming up with top five was all too easy and I really didn’t want to leave three titles behind, so here are my “top eight horror films of 2012.”

Over-all, the year was a mixed bag – as each year in the genre tends to be - although I’m always hopeful that we’ll soon have 12 months where the good far outweighs the bad.  Speaking of “bad,” let me take a »

Warner Home Video is set to release the concluding chapter of its animated adaptation of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns next month [if you've not seen the first part yet, then seek it out immediately], and thanks to an official press release we now have a full synopsis, as well as a rundown of the special features set to accompany the Blu-ray...

With Gotham City back under his watchful eye, and accompanied by able sidekick Robin, Batman continues to battle crime – but his resurgence awakens a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum: The Joker. In the meantime, Superman has been dispatched by the President to halt Batman’s unsanctioned reign by whatever means necessary. Between the Joker’s diabolical scheme to drag Batman to the darkest levels of insanity, and the Man of Steel’s seemingly invincible physical presence, the Dark Knight must confront adversaries and allies simultaneously while maintaining the peace in Gotham City.

'The Hunger Games' Rules This Year's Surprising List of the Most-Searched Movie Titles

13 December 2012 12:45 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

    At the end of the year, Google and Yahoo fill us in on the most-searched movie titles. We'll leave it to you to figure out the demographic that uses each search engine, but we'll admit that we're definitely more Google-type folks 'round these parts. The list contains some surprises. Where's The Dark Knight Rises on Google's list? The Hunger Games dominates both rankings at number one, and smaller titles like Magic Mike made the cut for both websites. Clearly, audiences need more male nudity. Filmmakers: take note.   Google has Indian action film Ek Tha Tiger, which is a pretty great oddball addition, but then it ruined things by including Dark Shadows, too. James Bond turned 50, so he's featured prominently on both...

Who Is the Best Movie Tough Chick of 2012?

12 December 2012 2:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

I wouldn't want to mess with any of the ladies who made it into our poll of the best tough chicks from movies this year. There's an array of female badasses, like a fiercely protective newborn vampire, a trigger-happy cat burglar, a murderous drug queenpin, and a teenager who will fight you to the death if she has to. Tell us which tough girl you rooted for the most this year (even if "rooting for" also means you're a little afraid of her). Who Is the Best Movie Tough Chick of 2012? Black Widow, The Avengers Bella, Breaking Dawn Part 2 Selina Kyle, The Dark Knight Rises Elena, Savages Katniss, The Hunger Games Angelique, Dark Shadows Merida, Brave Elizabeth, Prometheus Lori, Total Recall »

Which Movie Was Googled The Most In 2012?

12 December 2012 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

"The Hunger Games" might not have been the top grossing or most acclaimed movie of the year, but it was the film that people cared about the most.

Google has released a list of its top trends for 2012, and "The Hunger Games" came out on top of the movies category. It makes sense, too: There was plenty of hype leading up to the March release of "The Hunger Games," with many positing that it could be the next "Twilight." It remains to be seen if the film series will have the same sort of staying power that "The Twilight Saga" did, but we'd argue that it has lived up to its expectations thus far.

We would have assumed that "The Avengers" would have placed higher on the list, but it actually was "Skyfall" that came in second in the top movie trends. Considering how successful that movie has been, it »

“Cinemageddon 2012″ Raises The Bar For Retrospective Movie Videos

12 December 2012 4:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With 2013 rapidly approaching, it seems to be an apt time to look back over what has been a pretty memorable year for cinema. Everybody is beginning to pick out their personal favourites from 2012 and various sites, blogs and publications are starting to release their yearly best-of lists as well. However, over the past few years, one of the most enjoyable ways which has emerged to pay homage to the year’s cinematic offerings has been the retrospective video. Last week an early contender was released in the form of the ’2012 Movie Trailer Mash-up’, which you can view below.


If you’re still itching for more, today we have a new video which will certainly take some beating in the highly competitive end of year retrospective movie montage stakes. Coming courtesy of Christopher Sherwood, ‘Cinemageddon 2012′ is a wonderfully edited mash-up video taking in a wide range of movies from across the cinematic spectrum. »

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 38 – Hyde Park On Hudson And Our Worst Lists

11 December 2012 8:15 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

We were incredibly busy this week, and it resulted in us going over our time by thirty minutes, but it was well worth it.

We managed to cover Deadfall, Hyde Park on Hudson, and deliver our Worst of the Year lists, even though mine only went to eight for some reason. Plus, we got in a shot at Roger Ebert, which is always a plus.

That shot comes by way of our forgetting to mention it during last week’s show covering Killing Them Softly, and, obviously, has to do with Ebert’s review of the film. The short version of the story is that it is absolutely clear that he did not actually watch this film.

We wrapped up Deadfall pretty quickly, and that’s about what it deserved. It has an interesting entry and overall premise, and you can’t fault the actors, but it gets lost in »

Critics' Choice Awards: What are the Best Comedies of 2012?

5 December 2012 7:07 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I just received my ballot for the 2013 Critics Choice Movie Awards and have set up a spreadsheet with all the 2012 films I've seen or intend to see before nominations are due on Sunday, December 9 and there are some categories I'm certainly having trouble with -- the genre categories being the toughest. So, I thought I would take it out to the readers to gauge what you think of the year in movies with regard to these categories and felt we would begin with comedies. Here are the categories we're discussing in this post: Best Comedy Best Actor in a Comedy Best Actress in a Comedy Now I have listed below 37 films you may or may not consider comedies from this past year and I say that because I'm not entirely convinced I should consider The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Silver Linings Playbook, Jeff, Who Lives at Home or even »

Cool Videos: 2012 trailer mash-up video from hell is an editing spectacle

We see a lot of mash-ups 'round these parts, some great, some funny, and some atrocious.  This 2012 trailer mash-up by Sleepyskunk is, however, just plain awesome.  Featuring clips from all the hits (and misses) of the year, including The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, John Carter, Dark Shadows, Django Unchained, Cloud Atlas, 21 Jump Street, Lincoln, Dredd 3D, and countless others, the clip is edited with magnificent precision; an "ultimate" trailer that is »

Matt Zoller Seitz's Top 10 TV Shows for 2012

2 December 2012 6:25 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

1. Mad Men (AMC)A few scripted shows aired episodes as strong as the best of Mad Men’s fifth season, but none sustained such ambition, lyricism, and depth from week to week. Nearly every scene, line, and shot seemed keenly judged. The major themes (the waning of the Wasp Establishment in the face of the civil-rights movement and feminism; societal chaos manifested in threats of random violence; universal fears of aging, impotence, and death) were developed with a delicacy characteristic of great mid-century American fiction. At least five episodes were flat-out masterworks (“Signal 30,” “At the Codfish Ball,” “Far Away Places,” “Dark Shadows,” and “Commissions and Fees”), and the rest were so rich that, in retrospect, complaints seem like churlish nitpicks. Throughout, showrunner Matthew Weiner and his collaborators served up indelible images, scenes, and sequences: Megan cooing “Zou Bisou Bisou” at Don’s surprise birthday party, writhing like a siren; Sally »

Visual Effects Finalists: Superheroes Rule, Subtlety Drools

30 November 2012 6:37 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Yesterday the finalists for Oscar's Visual Effects prize were announced. In the end there will be five nominees but for the next month ten films can dream of winning the nomination before the great culling on January 10th, 2013. Once again we see a preference for computer generated imagery with only Skyfall and The Dark Knight Rises as obvious examples of films which tried mightily to rely on in-camera practical effects and stunt work. At a recent "Evening With Christopher Nolan" here in NYC (more soon) Nolan revealed his preference for in camera work with computers relegated to touch up work. 

Did you know that that infamous collapsing football field that led into the seige of Gotham was actually, in part, a collapsing football field (!) and not a figment of a computer artists imagination!? 

Snubs: Generally speaking you can expect the more subtle fx work to be shut out each and every year. »

It's that time of year again, kids. The holiday season is right around the corner, and we've compiled our yearly list of the best and worst Blu-rays of the year. Being that you can score a player for way less than 100 bucks now, there's little reason not to upgrade. Read on to find out where the smart money is!

There's no doubt Blu-ray players will once again be a pretty hot item this year, but what of the movies available for them? If you already own the DVD of your favorite flick, is there a need to replace it with a Blu-ray? I'm here to answer all of your questions in the fourth annual...

Before we get into our picks (most of which are also available in new DVD versions; see review for information), let's take a second to explain once again how we rated them. They're broken down into »
