An American Film Geek's Best of the Decade, 2000-2009

31 December 2009 10:29 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Sheesh, another list! At the end of every year, the need to do an annual best-of movie round-up seems to sneak up on me. The fact that it's now the end of the decade snuck on me all the more. In compiling this admittedly quick list, I looked over all my qualifying year-end lists, and re-evaluated where necessary. I tried to consider the films I saw in the greater sociological context of the decade itself - their effects on it, and what they have to say about it. At the same time, I also tried to include some personal selections that probably wouldn't make other such lists, but were important to me. Please keep in mind that i could not see everything, and that my beat around here is the mainstream theatrical films. I managed to narrow it down to twenty films, ranking the first ten. So here it, my best of the decade, »

Top 25 Movies of 2009 #1 - 10

Here we are, time for all of us to reveal our top ten films of 2009. Many of you wondered why I only allowed you to pick five films in the nominations poll I started on Monday. Well, everything was in an effort to make sure you all held your lists until today as I reveal my top ten favorite films of 2009 and hope you will add your thoughts on my list as well as share your individual lists of 10, 15, 20 or however many films from the year that was. We have only a couple of days left before 2010 shuts the door on what I thought was a rather enjoyable year in film once you brush away a few of those lousy blockbusters that weren't.

Before I go any further, let me once again share the schedule as I promised I would include with each posting on Monday:

HorrorBid's Top 10 Most Significant Horror Movies Of The Decade

29 December 2009 7:43 PM, PST | Horrorbid | See recent Horrorbid news »

Just in the nick of time comes HorrorBid's top 10 most significant horror flicks of the decade! Unlike everybody's best of '09 and decade lists we wanted to be different. Instead of defending why we think certain movies of the past 10 years are better than others we decided to concentrate on films that have had the biggest horror impact instead. This means there could be movies in this list that we don't particularly like but that's not the point.

10. Trick 'r Treat (2008)

Just because the long-delayed horror anthology never got the major theatrical release it deserved doesn’t mean Trick r Treat was any less significant and in fact many argue this led to its ultimate success. Since when does a movie have a massive cult following before its debut? With such hype it was feared Trick r Treat couldn’t live up to expectations but it easily captured the essence of Halloween with twisting storylines, »

Tarantino minimalism

29 December 2009 5:38 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There seems to be a trend lately in minimalist art for entertainment purposes. I’ve seen movie posters, TV shows and video games, all reduced down to a few select shapes or images, but this new batch of Tarantino-themed movie images from artist Ibraheem Youssef (via Slashfilm) are some of the best I’ve seen yet. He has designs for Kill Bill 1&2, Resevoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Unfortunately no love for Inglourious yet. What would that one be? Just a blank face with a red swastika on it? Check out the excellent posters below: »

Vincent D'Onofrio Fills Weinstein's Shoes

28 December 2009 7:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

In a period where the studio-based portion independent film industry are on suicide watch, it'll be fun to relive a time when Harvey Weinstein and everyone competing against him could do no wrong. Ever since we got word that there was a screenplay based on Peter Biskind's incendiary book was making the rounds (Jeffrey Wells) and there was activity on the production that a crew were in Cannes filming, but now we got word that Down and Dirty Pictures (a 10 million dollar production) has got a great cast in place (Hugh Dancy, Matthew Perry, Andy Serkis, Sally Hawkins, Elias Koteas, Bobby Cannavale, Toby Jones and Michael Rispoli) with Scren Daily reporting that Vincent D'Onofrio is poised to take on the "role" of Weinstein. - (Thanks to a reader below for pointing out that apparently some of the info below might turn out to be false - Screen Daily have pulled their article, »

Quentin Tarantino talks ‘Inglourious Basterds’ prequel, new mystery project

28 December 2009 4:27 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino recently said in an interview that he has already finished 40-pages worth of a prequel to one of 2009’s best films, Inglourious Basterds. Sadly, fans of the historical rewrite may have to wait until Tarantino completes a “smaller, less epic” project first. Will it be the rumored Kill Bill Part 3? Probably not, yet the writer and director failed to reveal much about the movie other than that it will be from a “different genre entirely” from Basterds.

The Pulp Fiction director states that he will complete the script in a five- to six-month spurt of “intensive writing.”

The 46-year-old also finished his foreign press tour for Basterds and experienced some thrills over the film’s reception in Germany and Israel during the screenings.

Germany:

When Germans are watching World War II movies, they’re used to cringing. Why they make themselves endure it, I don’t know. »

Matt’s Top 10 Films of 2009

27 December 2009 7:45 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m so happy that 2009 was a front-loaded year.  Friends and family asked me on more than one occasion, “It’s the end of the year, so where are all the good movies?”  I responded that this year, for whatever reason, was different and some of the year’s best films had premiered as early as Sundance (The Hurt Locker technically debuted in 2008 with its premiere at the Venice Film Festival).  The scarcity of must-see year-end flicks worked out beautifully for me because I had the time to give more thought to films and have the opportunity to watch them more than once.  I feel confident in my Top 10 in a way that I’ve been uneasy about in years prior.  There was a wealth of great films to choose from this year and almost all of my favorites are now available to own or rent on DVD or Blu-ray. »

John’s 10 Biggest Movie Surprises of 2009

24 December 2009 12:56 PM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

I’ll be up front with you: the list you’re about to read wasn’t what I had in store for you. As I sat at my desk and prepared to crank out what would be another top ten list of 2009, I realized that I was utterly ill-equipped to do so. As many great films as I witnessed this year, I missed just as many that I’m sure I’d enjoy: A Serious Man. The Fantastic Mr. Fox. The Hurt LockerThe Brothers Bloom.

I know. Just thinking about it makes me sick. But I saw enough to be confident in saying that 2009 was an extremely good year for movies — from blockbusters to indie pictures, we’ve witnessed some great films and surprising debuts from unique filmmakers.

What follows isn’t a list of the “best” films of 2009, but instead is a list of the most surprising, excellent »

Tarantino Going Smaller For Next Film

23 December 2009 9:10 PM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Does Quentin Tarantino have a new project in mind? Yes, but it’s not an Inglourious Basterds sequel, despite having the first 40 pages already written.

The auteur recently told New York magazine’s Vulture section that he has a "smaller, less epic" project he wants to do next, in a "different genre entirely" from his macaroni war flick. Could he be headed back to low-budget crime movies like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction? Tarantino doesn’t give many hints, but he did say the screenplay could be finished with about six months of focused writing.

Could he be returning to the story of the Bride? Tarantino has expressed interest in a third Kill Bill film, which would take place 10 years after Kill Bill, Vols. 1 and 2, but I can’t see that fitting his "smaller, less epic" description. It should be noted that his final decision probably won’t be made until after awards season. »

Waltz, Fassbender And Knightley Join Cronenberg's The Talking Cure

23 December 2009 8:56 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Tarantino first burst on to the scene, he quickly became renowned as a director who could reinvigorate a career. It began with John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, then there was Robert Forester in Jackie Brown, and, briefly, David Carradine in Kill Bill. Now following the release and incredible success of Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino isn't exactly reinventing careers, but he's giving them a hell of a boost. By way of their Facebook account (kind of an esoteric place to post an announcement like this), Hopscotch Films has announced that they will be distributing David Cronenberg's next film, The Talking Cure, and that it has lined up its three stars: Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley. Based on the play of the same name by Christopher Hampton, the story centers on the birth of psychoanalysis and the relationship between Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Jung's young Russian patient whom »

Quentin Tarantino Has 40 Pages Of 'Inglourious Basterds' Prequel Written But It's Not His Next Movie

22 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

When we spoke to Quentin Tarantino a few weeks ago, he didn't really get specific about what he's doing next. He's still not being specific about what he's doing next, but a few new details have emerged concerning his future plans.

The "Inglourious Basterds" director sat down for a chat recently with Vulture, and they got to talking about what's next. Tarantino admitted that he actually has 40 pages of an "Inglourious" prequel already written, but it's backburnered for now. He has every intention of pursuing it at some point, with decisions likely to be made after the awards season dust settles, but there's something different on the horizon right now for the man who gave the world "Pulp Fiction" and "Reservoir Dogs."

The word is that Tarantino is planning a "smaller, less epic" project, something that could conceivably come together (he hopes) over about a half a year of focused writing. »

Set stealer Christopher Walken

22 December 2009 12:00 AM, PST | Virgin Media - Movies | See recent Virgin Media - Movies news »

Christopher Walken never buys his own clothes. The 66-year-old actor - who has starred in over 100 Hollywood movies - said he always raids the costume department of whichever set he is on, so he doesn't ever need to buy his own clothes. He said: ''I'll tell you something... I never buy clothes. Whenever I'm making a movie I take the clothes from there back home. My complete wardrobe is from movie sets. Usually it's real nice stuff''. The 'Pulp Fiction' star said although he tries to collect all these souvenirs from the films he's worked on they're not always very easy to .. »

From YouTube to Hollywood with ‘Ataque de Panico’

21 December 2009 1:15 PM, PST | The Flickcast | See recent The Flickcast news »

Sometimes Hollywood’s Cinderella stories come from behind the camera instead of what we actually see up on the big screen. Take a look at Tarantino’s rise from working at a video store to directing such classics as Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs. Now, a virtual unknown named Fede Alvarez looks to make a similar impact because of a video he put on YouTube.

No, it’s not a video of Afro Ninja or the Star Wars kid. Instead, Fede produced a four minute short film of Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital being destroyed by a robotic invasion. The amazing part of this short is that it only cost him about $300. Fede told the BBC, “I uploaded ‘Ataque de Panico!’ on a Thursday and on Monday my inbox was totally full of emails from Hollywood studios.” After a bidding war, Fede settled on signing with Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures for a reported $30,000,000 deal. »

Tarantino To Be Honoured By London Critics

21 December 2009 10:56 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Director Quentin Tarantino will be feted by the London Film Critics' Circle when he is presented with the organisation's top honour next year.

The Pulp Fiction filmmaker has been named the recipient of the Dilys Powell award for excellence in cinema.

And Tarantino is flattered by the accolade.

He says, "This is such an honour. I have always relished discussing my work with film critics."

Tarantino will be presented with the prize at a ceremony in London on 18 February.

Meanwhile, critics have heaped praise on coming-of-age drama An Education - the movie has landed seven nominations at the Critics' Circle awards, included British Film of the Year, Best Actress for Carey Mulligan and Best Supporting Actor for Alfred Molina.

French film The Prophet follows with five nods, including Director of the Year for Jacques Audiard and Film of the Year, going up against The Hurt Locker, Avatar and Up in the Air, among others. »

The movies set for Oscar glory in 2010

21 December 2009 2:55 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood's red carpet gets wider next year, with twice as many best picture nominees. From Harlem to Iraq, Disney fantasy to star-studded musical, we look at the main contenders and anticipate a year of true diversity

When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that the best picture category at the 2010 Oscars would be widened from five to 10 nominees, a leading American producer, here for the recent London film festival, told me bullishly: "You'd have to really screw up to not get nominated this time."

He shall remain nameless, mainly because, as awards season got under way last week with the announcement of the Golden Globe nominees, his film appears to be one of the most overlooked. Somewhere along the line, he just might have screwed up. But has the return to the pre-1944 era (when 10 or 12 films were often included) really sparked a race for films not »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

Only picking seven films kills me. There are many that will miss this list. But I’m not here to talk about the almosts, the close calls, the could’ve beens. No. Here, we shall only talk about the top seven films of the aughts.

7. Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Recap: A group of Jewish-American soldiers known as the “Inglourious Basterds” are making their way through Nazi occupied France, killing the Germans. But a German Colonel (Christoph Waltz) is out to get them, before they get him.

Reason: It’s really tough to pick a film from 2009 for this list. Have I given it the proper amount of time? Will I feel the same way? »

Awards Watch: Directors Roundtable

15 December 2009 8:05 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In the last of The Hollywood Reporter's annual Awards Roundtable series, THR's Elizabeth Guider and Matthew Belloni gathered six A-list directors -- Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker"); James Cameron ("Avatar"); Lee Daniels ("Precious"); Peter Jackson ("The Lovely Bones"); Jason Reitman ("Up in the Air"); and Quentin Tarantino ("Inglourious Basterds") -- for a candid discussion of filmmaking at the highest level.

The Hollywood Reporter: Do you guys consider yourselves outsiders or insiders?

Jason Reitman: Dead silence. (Laughs.)

James Cameron: If we're all outsiders, who's on the inside?

Quentin Tarantino: Well, actually, that's a very interesting question to start off with because I did my first movie in '92, so this was the year I actually counted how long I've been in the business. Officially as a director, that's 17 years, and I think for the first 10 years I did consider myself an outsider. But if you last this long »
