6 Things With Da7e [Goodbye 2010]

31 December 2010 3:39 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Merry Happy End 2010, everyone. There's something about the end of the year, probably having much to do with the annual trek back to the suburb where I grew up, that brings everything into a sharp, marzipan-tinged relief. Choices I made throughout the year were good or bad, people I love and people I'm thankful for are the most important, and my year in media condenses drastically as I have free time to take in the many end-of-the-year lists. I'm not one for end-of-the-year lists. I like lists, and as someone who has worked on the internet for almost a full decade, I know the value of content that can be skimmed first and read second. However, the end of the year is such an arbitrary time to make these lists. It's commercialism that's the motivator, like it always is. Everyone gets time off at the end of the year, time »

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 »

Exclusive Interview with David Fincher! Talks Social Network, Dragon Tattoo, 20,000 Leagues, Editing, How He Makes Movies, More

30 December 2010 9:37 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As the director of some of the best films over the past fifteen years (Fight Club, Zodiac, Seven, The Game, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network), David Fincher is considered by many (myself included) to be one of the best directors working in Hollywood.  Unfortunately, while he makes some of the best movies, he rarely grants interviews and is reluctant to talk with the press.   So when I was offered the chance to sit down with him earlier today to talk about his latest masterpiece, The Social Network, I jumped at the chance. While the interview was scheduled for thirty minutes, we actually ended up talking for almost fifty!  During our lengthy conversation we discussed making The Social Network (which gets released on DVD/Blu-ray January 11th), the way he makes movies, future projects like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and »

Have You Ever Fallen Out of Love with a Film?

28 December 2010 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Cinematical

The website Anomalous Material poses an interesting question, "What movies did you fall out of love with?" Just think about it; how often do you flip through the string of premium movie channels and opt to skip over a title you once would have had to watch all the way through? Just today I took a pass on '(500) Days of Summer,' 'Spider-Man' and 'The Birds.' However, in the case of these three films, it's not really about falling out of love with them per se, just not being in the mood for them or, in term of '(500) Days of Summer' specifically, just having seen it about 500 times already. Falling out of love with a film constitutes something wholly different: when a movie that once had a profound effect on you just doesn't cut it anymore.

First Images From Juan Solanas' Upside Down

27 December 2010 6:46 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Juan Solanas first leapt on to my radar a few years back with his dazzling short film The Man Without A Head, a Jeunet-style visual effort built around the romantic desires of a man quite literally without a head. With that short film Solanas announced himself as something unique, a director who fuses high concept science fiction with deeply human stories.

And then for his first feature he did something totally different.

But now he's back where he belongs with Upside Down, a high concept science fiction romance starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst.

Look up towards the sky and rub your eyes because you won't believe what you see: cities, forests, and oceans with their own inverted gravity, only an arm's length away, yet completely unreachable. Take a leap over to this alternate reality, two worlds - one above, one below‐ facing each other, and you'll land in the extraordinary world of Upside Down, »

Robert De Niro Tops List of Most Movie Deaths

27 December 2010 4:16 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

ChaCha put together a list of actors who have died the most in their movies. Topping the list is Robert De Niro with fifteen deaths, including ones in "Cape Fear," "Frankenstein" and "Jackie Brown." Bruce Willis also made the list and was actually killed twice by his ex-wife Demi Moore in "Mortal Thoughts" and "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle." Brad Pitt is in top ten as well, but his deaths are a bit odd. He died in "Cool World," but returned as an animated character. He died in "Fight Club," but never actually existed. And he died in "Meet Joe Black," but came back as Death. The list is far from perfect, since it doesn't include Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed, Titanic, Blood Diamond), Kevin Spacey (Se7en, American Beauty, La Confidential), Samuel L. Jackson (Deep Blue Sea, True Romance, Jurassic Park), or John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Face/Off, The Punisher). Plus, there »

Choose The 1998 Academy Award Winners!

23 December 2010 6:30 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I love that a heated discussion over Titanic’s infamous Oscar sweep of 1998 has already begun over at Laurent’s excellent retrospective. I guess it’s just the nature of this particular film. There is something about Titanic that hits a raw nerve in people and they feel a need to defend/criticize it so passionately.

As it happens, I fall in the ‘unconditional love’ category and I’m not afraid to admit it. To this day I have a passion for Titanic, a film that so perfectly matches what a glorious, spellbinding, big spectacle romance against an historic backdrop should be, and those films are so rare, especially when they are made with such precise and meticulous detail from James Cameron.

We shouldn’t be embarrassed over how much we loved Titanic in the 90′s. We should embrace it. So as our third ‘Choose The Winners’ article, we are »

K's film retrospective; the best ten of 2010

23 December 2010 1:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Getting into the swing of things, I have noticed my fellow colleagues are posting their best, worst and other assortments of lists.  I will keep mine straight and to the point, and have chosen ten films I have seen this year, that have for different reasons had a profound impact on myself personally and/or the way I view cinema as a medium and as an art. I hope you enjoy the list and more to the point hope you see these films, to see what I am raving about!

Number 10Enter The Void

Gaspar Noe's seminal, (both literally in terms of semen and relating to his work) Enter The Void is an epic mind fuck. It is the simple story of two siblings, one of them dies in Tokyo right near the beginning of the film and then... his body freely floats through the neon nightmare, delving »

'The Social Network,' 'Scott Pilgrim' And The Rest Of The Best Soundtracks Of 2010

22 December 2010 10:30 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

At some point over the past 20 years, movie soundtracks went from being well-curated mixtapes that served as companion pieces to the actual films in question to a simple conglomeration of throwaway hit singles and up-and-coming artists that labels are desperate to promote. So when a great movie soundtrack comes along, it feels extra special when compared to the developments of recent history. The MTV Newsroom Blog takes movie soundtracks very seriously, which is why we've been keeping close tabs on the developments in the soundtrack universe over the past 12 months. And while 2010 wasn't as great as, say, 1999 (the year that the accompanying albums to "Fight Club," "The Matrix," "Go" and "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut" all delivered exceptional results), there were still some excellent soundtracks this year. In no particular order, here are the five best movie soundtracks of 2010.

Black Swan raises the bar with striking and beautiful set of posters | Paul Owen

20 December 2010 6:13 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

British design studio's adverts for new Darren Aronofsky film echo Polish and Czech posters of the 60s and ballet advertisements of the early 20th century – to impressive effect

I'm looking forward to seeing Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, the ballet thriller that the director views as a companion piece to his last film, the gripping and compassionate drama The Wrestler. But I'm also hoping to see the film's beautiful and striking posters on buses and bus shelters around the country. These are some of the most interesting and arresting movie posters I've seen for a long time.

The adverts were created by the British design studio Laboca and are influenced by Polish and Czech posters of the 60s and 70s, as well as ballet advertisements of the early 20th century. You can see the full set here. Three of the four take as their starting point some kind of dual »

Circle Of Pain: DVD review

18 December 2010 1:33 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Daniel Zirilli. Review: Adam Wing. Mixed Martial Arts fans rejoice - it’s the movie event you’ve all been waiting for. I know, I know, sometimes I forget you can’t type sarcastically. With a title like Circle of Pain, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I pressed play on the remote control, but my expectations weren’t exactly soaring if I’m completely honest. I was hoping for a horror movie at the very least, and when I realised the only name I recognised was former TV Superman Dean Cain, I convinced myself that I’d be watching a horror movie in which he has a terrifying encounter with Mr Pain. Probably in a circle, or maybe not, perhaps I was taking the film title a little too literally. Dalton Hunt (Schiena) has retired from the Revolution Fight Club (Rfc), even though he still has »

Owf Oscars 1999 – Saving Private Ryan Wins Best Picture

17 December 2010 6:32 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

We’ve been asking you all week to vote for your Oscar picks from the year 1999, twelve years on as we retrospectively take a look back at all the Academy Award ceremonies in the 1990′s to see if time has been kind to the winners and losers.

28 of you voted, a little less than the amount who voted last time (which I think is to do with the problems with the form as we had a few complaints, I will try and fix this for next time) including a handful of Owf writers, who have collectively, like Dr. Sam Beckett in Quantum Leap, gone back in time to ‘put things right, that once went wrong’.

The number in brackets is the amount of points that film/actor/director gained (that system is explained here). Let’s take a look at the winners, shall we?

Trailer Debut: Give Your Brain a Boost With 'Limitless'

16 December 2010 12:31 PM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unpublished writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret smart drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film. Penned by Leslie Dixon, Neil Burger's thriller is said to be in the vein of Fight Club and The Game. Inside you'll find the trailer debut and poster for Relativity's latest that will give your brain a major boost (hopefully) on March 18. Too bad it's shockingly bright and tame for what promised to be a dark psychological thriller. Now I wish we never started covering this. Crap. »

‘Limitless’ Trailer

16 December 2010 12:15 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The last time we heard from Neil Burger's new film Limitless (formerly called Dark Fields) Bradley Cooper was shilling a fake wonder drug called Nzt in a slick infomercial [1]. (And then a sample of Nzt actually arrived at my house. Nope, didn't try it.) Now there's a trailer for the film, in which Bradley Cooper plays a guy who is introduced to a drug that will unlock all the potential of the human mind. He becomes a powerhouse. It's like the superhero film for stockbrokers, but there's a real downside. Watch it after the break. See the trailer in HD at Apple [2]. First up, nice to see Robert De Niro's work here, as it's been too rare in the last few years that he increased my desire to see a film. There's a Fight Club vibe in this trailer, too, though whether that's just the trailer edit or »

David Fincher Confirmed for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

15 December 2010 7:48 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Back in May, Disney revealed that it will not proceed with the dark version of Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under Sea" that director McG (Terminator Salvation) was working on. But then David Fincher (The Social Network, Fight Club) showed interest in the project, forcing the studio take another look at it. Now in an interview with Jon Favreau, the helmer not only confirmed that he will direct "Magic Kingdom" instead of "Iron Man 3," but added that Fincher is officially on board to direct "20,000 Leagues" from a script by Scott Burns (Bourne Ultimatum). If the plan doesn't change, the project will have a budget of around $150 million and will serve as an origin story for Captain Nemo. Fincher's take is described as being in the vein of "Star Wars" or "The Empire Strikes Back." It will aim to be visually dazzling. »

‘Tree of Life’ Trailer Contains Life, The Universe and Everything

15 December 2010 12:49 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Wow.

Now that’s a trailer. Legendary writer-director Terrence Malick (“Days of Heaven,” “The New World”) may contain within him the last remaining remnants of Stanley Kubrick. This first look at his much-anticipated “The Tree of Life” plays like “2001″ crossed with Malick’s typical penchant for wistful stares and poetic imagery.

For the longest time the Bigfoot-esque reclusive director (who refuses to have his photo taken) has kept mum about revealing details as rumors ran rampant the film spans no less than the entire history of the universe, including dinosaurs! While there isn’t a T-rex to be found in the 2-minute clip (available in HD via iTunes), we do get fleeting glimpses of abstract landscapes that recall the beginning, and possibly end, of time itself.

As Keanu Reeves would say, “Whoa.”

Cryptic visuals aside, the meat of this tale seams to center around a man (Sean Penn) whose memories »

Why Do Special Effects Seem Less Special Lately?

15 December 2010 9:22 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Den of Geek publsihed a piece Tuesday entitled "The Numbing Ubiquity of Computer Graphics." Its thesis is one that I've personally held for a while: that the better and more widespread computer generated effects get the less interesting they become. As Ryan Lambie writes:

"Twenty or 30 years ago, even the tiniest glimpse of a computer-generated effect had an almost magical air of futuristic novelty about it... And yet, since the advent of a holy trinity of groundbreaking movies in the 90s, namely, 'Terminator 2,' 'Jurassic Park' and 'The Matrix,' it has become increasingly difficult to get particularly worked up about special effects of any kind. Audiences may have cooed and gasped over the imagery of 'Avatar' and 'Inception,' but we've now become so numbed by such visual flights of fancy, whether they're in films or adverts, that they appear to be set to »
