 Another year has come and gone, and with it the first decade of the 2000's (whatever happened to Y2K anyway?).  With the decade drawing to a close, we here at Script-To-Screen thought we'd put together a list of what we found to be the very best films over the last 10 years.

We are leaving Kubrick behind and fast approaching Hyams.  If you get that reference, go grab yourself a cookie.  It is time for us to reflect back on the decade that was.  On January 1st, 2000, Disney released Fantasia 2000.  On Wednesday, December 30th, 2009, The White Ribbon is set to bow.  Between the release of these two films, thousands of films came and went, and some of them were far more memorable than others.  It was a long trek getting this list together, but here are our collective top 100 films of the past decade.

Quick Year-to-Year by the Numbers:

2009 – 11

2008 – 11

2007 – 7

2006 – 14

2005 – 12

2004 – 8

2003 – 7

2002 – 12

Top of the Crops: Where do Triffids come in the countdown of killer plants?

28 December 2009 6:23 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Tonight sees the new adaptation of John Wyndham's novel The Day Of The Triffids begin on BBC1, with the concluding part tomorrow.

And with not so much as the hint of a tendril in the publicity shots, sci-fi fans have been wondering what the latest incarnation of the fictional flora will look like.

Triffids are probably the most well-known venomous vegetation on the big or small screen but far from the only example. So, with the Triffids about to wield their deadly stingers once again, it's time to take a look at the top horticultural horrors.

Please note that the following list will include fungi which were previously considered to be plants but are now classified in their own kingdom separate from animals, plants and bacteria. In fact, genetic studies have shown fungi to be more closely related to animals than plants. Nevertheless, mushrooms are grown as crops and eaten as vegetables, »

The Best Films of the Decade (aka "The Naughties")

27 December 2009 9:03 PM, PST | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

Best Films Of The Decade (aka The Naughties) From Alex & Terry

List # 1

By Alex Simon

When Terry and I initially discussed writing these lists, I had a tough time thinking back on 20 films over the past decade which I was really taken with, thinking that movies have sunk so low over the past ten years, that even choosing a dozen would be a short-order job. Thirty minutes into it, my list had nearly 60 titles! After much cutting, pasting, and re-cutting and pasting, here are my top 20 films (in no particular order) of the first decade of the 21st century, dubbed by many as “the naughties.” --A.S.

1.No Country for Old Men (Coen Brothers, 2007) An elegiac blend of stark beauty and full-throttle despair from two of our finest filmmakers, set in the contemporary American West. Every frame is damn near flawless, and would have been an even more perfect vehicle for the late Sam Peckinpah. »

Where should sci-fi boldly go in 2010?

24 December 2009 3:41 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With the success of Star Trek, Avatar and District 9, It's been a high-profile year for science-fiction, but has the quality matched the publicity? What new paths might the genre explore in the next decade?

Earlier this year, sci-fi actioner Pandorum proved that you can concoct an entertaining - if rather artistically bankrupt - thriller in space by splicing together bits of other popular genre flicks: in this case, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alien and Brit horror flick The Descent. Looking forward to next year's crop of sci fi movies, I wonder if Repo Men might follow a similar route.

The film is not, as its name suggests, a sequel to Alex Cox's wry 1984 punk cult classic, but rather an original piece based on the 2009 novel The Repossession Mambo, by Eric Garcia. I say original, for Repo Men seems to have grabbed elements of every sci fi flick from Gattaca to Minority Report, »

Colin Farrell - Love Him or Leave Him?

23 December 2009 2:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Is Colin Farrell having a career resurgence? I'm seeing the actor everywhere this week thanks to new release The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus and an uncredited cameo in Crazy Heart (check back later for my reviews of both films). Then I spotted these new pics from the upcoming Peter Weir movie The Way Back, and he pops up in them, too! I used to have a fascination with Farrell and his Irish bad-boy charm, always cursing up a storm on late-night shows in his thick brogue. For a while he was pretty in demand with big-budget films like Minority Report or Alexander, but over the years, I've seen less of him (perhaps because he's no longer a tabloid fixture). Farrell's a good actor, so I welcome more time with him on the big screen, but I'm still on the fence about how I feel about him nowadays. What's your take »

Red Band Trailer for ‘Repo Men’

23 December 2009 1:42 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Today we have a the red-band band trailer for a sci-fi action-thriller called Repo Men. Before you start freaking out: no,  it’s not the sequel to the 80s cult-hit with Emilio Estevez and flying cars.

Repo Men stars Jude Law and Forest Whitaker as two futuristic agents whose job is to repossess the hi-tech organs of recipients who can’t pay their costly bills to a less-than-friendly company called The Union. The movie is based on the novel The Repossession Mambo by Erica Garcia, who also wrote the novel-turned-movie Matchstick Men.

 

Of course, a film like this needs a twist and in Repo Men that twist comes when Law’s character, Remy, has an accident that forces him to receive one of The Union’s hi-tech hearts. When Remy can’t pay his own bills for the new heart, the company he used to get his hands dirty for »

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz have all to play for in Knight & Day

23 December 2009 7:44 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The title makes it sound like a bad 1980s BBC sitcom, but the this action comedy blockbuster, due out in summer 2010, is probably Cruise and Diaz's best chance to regain box-office cred

Take a look at any "most anticipated movies of 2010" list online and you'll see a familiar collection of sequels and remakes and adaptations. But there's one big summer movie that the list-makers seem to have ignored so far – the Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action comedy Knight & Day.

This wouldn't have happened a few years ago. Earlier in the decade, the hype surrounding a high-kicking blockbuster starring Minority Report's Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz from Charlie's Angels would have been building since the moment it started filming. As it is, the past three days have seen a poster and a teaser trailer launched to almost no fanfare whatsoever.

You don't need to be a genius to see why »

Putting Your Gear to Work

23 December 2009 6:30 AM, PST | SCOREcastOnline.com | See recent SCOREcastOnline.com news »

I am not the most tech-minded of people.

I thought Logic 9 was 64-bit until it was pointed out to me on Twitter that it wasn't. I didn't care though. It still runs lovely and fast. And on Snow Leopard too, which is a shock because I thought I was being a little risky upgrading when I did… but so far so good. In fact better than good, to be fair.

Just so long as the equipment serves the higher function to create music as easily, quickly, efficiently and intuitively as possible, then I'm a happy bunny.

Let me explain... right after the jump...

I just wish I had an interface like Tom Cruise had in "Minority Report". Imagine how much fun that would be. And you'd get a workout at the same time, none of this sore-arse-fat-belly-tired-eyes that sitting staring at an itty-bitty monitor does to one who chooses to »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part One

15 December 2009 7:47 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After such success with this last year, today comes the first in a multi-chapter look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2010.

Each 'Volume' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of around 25-30 films, and at present it's looking to run around nine volumes in length.

Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first official weekend of releases on January 8th.

Opens: 2010

Cast: Jason Statham, Alexander Skarsgard, Mickey Rourke, Ray Winstone, 50 Cent

Director: Géla Babluani

Decade in Review: 2002 Top Ten

2 December 2009 7:58 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As with 2000 and 2001, I'm reprinting my original top ten lists and commentary. If I've got something new to say, it'll be in red below.

Please note: This list was based on NYC release dates in the year 2002. Some movies are listed as different years at the IMDb based on when they were produced or released in their home country or in La or whatnot.

Undervalued: Morvern Callar, Roger Dodger, About a Boy, White Oleander, Panic Room and Kissing Jessica Stein Top 10 Runners Up: Chicago, Monsoon Wedding, Punch Drunk Love and Spirited Away I still am glad I championed most of these movies though I am sad that some of them aren't in the top ten... particularly Morvern, Monsoon and the Miyazaki. The MMMs. Though I'm not sure I'd know what to remove to make room for them.

Celebs Return to Their Most Iconic Roles for Photo Shoot

2 December 2009 6:45 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

To celebrate their 20th birthday, Empire Magazine invited a whole ton of actors and actresses to ever-so-briefly reprise their most iconic roles for a pretty cool photo shoot. Curious to see what Arnold Schwarzenegger would look like now if he donned those famous black sunglasses and threw on his best badass pose for a photo in front of a motorcycle? Or what about wanting to see Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster reunited for the first time since the Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs?

Other cool photo ops include Mel Gibson wearing face paint in honor of Braveheart, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost looking back at Shaun of the Dead, Christian Bale returning to his American Psycho days, Ben Stiller showing us all that Zoolander totally deserves a sequel, Gerard Butler giving us his best 300 roar, Laurence Fishburne calling back Morpheus and more. It's a pretty cool idea, even if Tom Cruise »

Advert. Subvert. Gonzo (Fake) Commercials within Films

24 November 2009 7:50 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

"Can't get enough, of the Stuff!"  From the mid-1920s whereupon the eventual Oscar winning film Wings featured a Hershey Chocolate Bar prominently in the story right on up to the use of M&Ms in Steven Spielberg's E.T. and beyond to the modern James Bond films or Castaway (FedEx) or The Great Yokai War (Kirin Beer) or perhaps the worst offender ever:  I, Robot, product placement is simply a large part of big expensive movies.  And many filmmakers have either parodied product placement (ahem, sorry:  Brand Integration) or even invented their own fictional consumer goods that only appear in their movies.  Unlike television, which (in large part) relies on advertising to fund the creation of shows, there are rarely full commercials used explicitly in a film (before the screening of the film is another story, unfortunately!).  But filmmakers love to offer ads for fake products or services or »

Sam Worthington goes back to the future

20 November 2009 12:53 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Avatar's Sam Worthington is clearly not done with science fiction - he's attached to star in near-future tale The Last Days Of American Crime. The Minority Report-esque plot focuses on the Us government's plan to covertly broadcast a signal that would make it impossible for anyone to commit a crime. It's been adapted from Rick Remender's comic book, which is ready to hit the shops as a miniseries next month. There's no word on who might direct the movie yet, but if Duncan Jones wasn't already busy on Source Code and trying to get Mute...

Sam Worthington To Star In ‘American Crime’

19 November 2009 9:56 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Rising star Sam Worthington continues to build quite a career for himself: he’s already starred in Terminator Salvation, and has both James Cameron’s Avatar and the remake of Clash of the Titans on deck, two huge properties I think you’ll agree. Now, adding to that ever-growing list of Worthington movies is The Last Days of American Crime, an adaptation of an upcoming comic book/graphic novel of the same name from Radical Publishing.

Comic creator Rick Remender created and wrote The Last Days of American Crime, and Mania reports that he will also pen the script for the big-screen adaptation. The comic is described as, “a heist thriller told against a sci-fi backdrop.” From Radical’s website, here’s the synopsis:

 

In the not-too-distant future as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible »

The week in geek: will Kick-Ass be a 21st-century superhero?

12 November 2009 10:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

So what do you think of the Kick-Ass trailer? And is it good or bad that Steven Spielberg's Oldboy remake is apparently not going to happen?

You would be forgiven for thinking that now the superhero-loving public has got Watchmen – the holy grail of superhero movies – out of its system, the appetite for everyday Joes who dress up as masked vigilantes might have been sated. Not so, or at least that's what Matthew Vaughn and his team will no doubt be hoping in advance of their release of Kick-Ass next year.

The film is based on a Mark Millar comic book about a New York teenager who decides to don a costume and head out on to the streets to fight crime. Just as in Watchmen, the absence of real superpowers proves a major drawback in his efforts to take out the bad guys, but the comic also features »
