25 December 2009 11:09 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Merry Christmas, gentle readers! Today is a day for spending time with loved ones, yelling at those loved ones, giving them gifts, refilling their drinks. It's also a day for popping in a DVD in the living room while working through a food coma. What will it be? The list of movies that have explored this eggnog-drenched holiday is nearly as long as Santa's own. Now action, now rom-com, now satire and thriller!

With some strong 'nog in hand, we took a look back at some of the very best and very worst a big screen Noel has to offer and plucked out our favorite elements from each. Gather the family round the computer screen and take in MTV News' Christmas Movie Awards.

Best Santa – Dan Aykroyd in "Trading Places"

12 Action Movies Set During Christmas Season

24 December 2009 11:08 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Christmas is supposed to be a time of giving, peace and good will towards men. But in Hollywood, its also a time for death, destruction and nearly every form of mayhem.  Throughout the 80's 90's and (soon to be history) 00's more and more action films seem to take place during “the most wonderful time of the year”. Whether it be a heist, monster invasion or assault by pirates, so much onscreen action occurs on this jolly day that it's a miracle ole Saint Nick isn't killed in the crossfire. Here are just a few action films where Christmas is actually the last thing on the minds of characters fighting for their lives.Batman Returns (1992) Set during the Christmas season where a tree lighting ceremony in Gotham City serves as a battleground for the struggle between Batman (Michael Keaton), The Penguin (Danny DeVito) and Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer). The film opens »

Grinch Named Worst Christmas Movie Ever

24 December 2009 8:11 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

How The Grinch Stole Christmas has been named the Worst Christmas Movie of all time in a new online poll.

Editors at Moviefone.com have compiled their top festive flops, and crowned the Ron Howard-directed 2000 release top of the pile.

Explaining their decision, a spokesperson for the site tells WENN, "A loud, garish and obnoxious film, certainly a career low for director Ron Howard - and it's not exactly Jim Carrey's finest hour (or two), either."

The top 10 is as follows:

1. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

2. The Santa Clause 3 (2006)

3. Deck the Halls (2006)

4. Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)

5. Four Christmases (2008)

6. Surviving Christmas (2004)

7. Jingle All the Way (1996)

8. Christmas with the Kranks (2004)

9. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)

10. Reindeer Games (2000). »

Michael Bay Confirms Transformers 3 for July 1, 2011

1 October 2009 2:57 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Well, you guys asked for it, and you got it... Transformers 3 is happening, as of right now. Michael Bay announced on his blog [1] today that pre-production has officially started on the third film in the series, and a release date has been set: July 1st, 2011. Mark it on your calendars kiddies. Ehren Kruger (Reindeer Games, The Brothers Grimm, Blood and Chocolate) is returning to write the script, although there has been no word as of yet on the involvement of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. As for Megan Fox, well it appears that she will be returning as well, but that should come as no surprise, right? There had been a war of words between Michael Bay and Megan Fox over the past month or so, with Fox comparing Michael Bay to Hitler [2] in an interview, and some loyal crew members coming to the defense [3] of Bay, but in the end, »

Transformers 3 Coming in 2011

1 October 2009 9:38 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Wow, Michael Bay is a serious glutton for punishment. Barely a breath-catching minute after the slavish effort that “Boom-Boom” Bay and the f/x wizards over at Industrial Light and Magic put in to get Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen in theaters this past summer, they’re proposing to run that marathon all over again in order to get Transformers 3 in theaters for Summer 2011.

Bay made the official announcement today - and he even threw in a funny little stab at Megan Fox in response to all the you-know-what she’s been talking about him recently. Oh, and Transformers 2 haters listen up: apparently they have a “great story” this time around (do you believe it?).

 

Here’s the the official message Bay posted on his official forum:

Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.

Today is Day One. »

Review: The Informant!

17 September 2009 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Matt Damon is an actor whom I thoroughly enjoy shelling out box office cash to see. At the risk of revealing my less-than-covert man crush on him, I really think Damon has developed an incredibly solid body of work in American cinema because he took the time and put in the work. I guess that is the actor in me admiring a movie star who still cares about the character work, but it is something that seems lacking in a majority of the blockbuster set. It is awesomely cruel to chart the careers of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck post Good Will Hunting. You could make a drinking game out their inversely proportional film choices. For every Bourne Identity there is a Reindeer Games; for every Ocean's 11, a Gigli. Speaking of Ocean's 11, I'm here to talk about the newest Soderbergh/Damon collaboration. Wow, that was quite possibly the worst segue of all time. Regardless »

Charlize Theron Risks Sand In Her Bajango For ‘Florence of Arabia’

29 July 2009 8:54 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

South African princess Charlize Theron looks to have found yet another project to add to her increasingly busy schedule.  She's recently acquired the screen rights to Christopher Buckley's novel "Florence of Arabia" about a woman who's best friend marries an Middle Eastern prince and ends up being executed for renting Not Without My Daughter.  Theron will play a State Dept. employee who feels the punishment exceeded the crime and goes on to fight for women's rights in the male-dominated society. It's a satire. I like Theron quite a bit.  Her talented and naked presence in Reindeer Games and Two Days In The Valley helps make both films highly rewatchable.  And in addition to this new project she currently has eight other future titles listed on IMDb.  My wish though is that she'd focus on one single project... her remake of Chan-wook Park's Sympathy For Lady Vengeance.  Park himself says Theron "gets" the character and I »

10 Memorable Oscar Acceptance Speeches

17 February 2009 11:55 PM, PST | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

You've just walked up to the podium in a daze. After bracing yourself for the disappointment that you've been trying to convince yourself you shouldn't feel, some movie star in a bejeweled dress tears open an envelope and calls your name. Now all eyes in the room—and in millions of living rooms—are on you, and you have to say something funny and something poignant and thank all of the people who need to be thanked, and the giant clock that only you can see is counting down, just like Charlie Kauffman said it would. It takes a special talent to deliver a memorable Oscar acceptance speech. Fortunately—at least for the actors—they're pretty good at delivering a great line. Here are some of the best Oscar acceptance speeches of the last few decades of the Academy Awards. Honorable mentions go to Adrian Brody for kissing Halle Berry »
