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.

The Naughts: The Actress of the '00s

4 December 2009 10:17 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

If time is an avenger, then the Naughts have had it both ways with Nicole Kidman. In the span of a decade, Kidman was transformed from arm candy into an artist -- the rare movie star who made genuinely interesting choices -- eclipsing her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, who filed for divorce in 2000, with an Oscar win and the embrace, finally, of her peers on her own terms.

However, as the '00s limp to a close, Kidman seems to be succumbing to a personal vendetta against time: by manipulating her face into a mask -- a waxworks ideal of "Nicole Kidman" -- rather than continuing to deploy it as a functional instrument, an artist's tool, Kidman is taking perhaps the most surprising risk of her career: she has chosen to age into glacial iconicity. In this, she exemplifies a decade that treated actresses with ambivalence, waving all the flags of »

Agora Coming to North America in 2010!

18 November 2009 6:36 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

We are big fans of Alejandro Amenabar's sword and sandal epic Agora, in these parts.  In the Canadian and American press it was met with middling reviews after its festival run and it languished without any sort of distribution despite a plethora of reasons why this should have been a shoe-in for a wide release:  It is made in English, directed by Amenabar who a proven track quality and box-office track record (The Sea Inside, The Others) and features incredible (Hollywood style) production design.  Perhaps the mixture of interesting science, religion and philosophy scared folks off taking a chance on this film (or Rachel Weisz in another thinking art-blockbuster after the failure of The Fountain).  However, the Spanish Box Office has spoken loudly as Agora has been breaking records since its release several weeks ago.  According to Screen International, Newmarket Films just picked up the Us rights to the »

Decade in Review: 2001 Top Ten

17 November 2009 8:41 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What follows is my original top ten list of 2001. We'll discuss each year of the decade over the next month or two (we already did 2000). I do this because I am curious about which films "stick" and which fade and why and maybe you are too? Best year of the decade I think. The top five films would all be valid #1 film choices in some years. New comments are in red.

Note: This list references films released in NYC in 2001, not year of production or year in which they first the hit festival circuit or whatnot.

Runners Up (in descending order): Sexy Beast, Ali, Series 7: The Contenders, The Others, Last Resort and Waking Life. I don't remember loving Ali that much... and more than The Others? I don't remember that at all. I mean Nicole Kidman was the shit Twice Over in 2001.

'Agora' picked up for U.S. release

17 November 2009 12:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"Agora," Alejandro Amenabar's intellectual epic that had sat without a U.S. buyer for six months, has found a stateside home.

Newmarket Films has picked up U.S. rights to the Rachel Weisz starrer and is prepping a release for the first half of 2010.

The English-language "Agora" tells the story of religious conflict in Roman-governed Alexandria as the Christian and pagans battle, often violently, for religious and intellectual supremacy. The period story centers on he enlightened thinker Hypatia (Weisz) as well as both her philosophical and romantic conflicts. Max Minghella also stars.

Mateo Gil wrote the script with Amenabar; Mod Prods., Himenoptero and Telecinco produced the pic with the participation of Canal + Spain. Cinetic repped the filmmakers in the sale.

The pic rode into the Festival de Cannes with high expectations, fueled by both its star cast and Amenabar, who was behind Oscar winner "The Sea Inside" and high-end genre breakout "The Others. »

The Road” Takes Fresh Approach to Post-Apocalyptic Genre

Ever since God flooded out the entire human race in the early pages of Genesis, literature has abounded with stories of the apocalypse. For generation after generation, from The Book of Revelations to The Stand, we have obsessed over the end of the world, how it will come to pass, and what, if anything, we can do to stop it. Now that humankind has reached a point where the End could conceivably happen in an afternoon, our glimpses into this theoretical future are all the more intriguing. And they’ve never been more important.

Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee in "The Road."

The Road, directed by John Hillcoat (The Proposition) and based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men), is a dark, poignant story of a father and son journeying through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, withstanding harsh weather, malnutrition, »

Exclusive Interview: Chris Weitz (New Moon Director) - Part I

12 November 2009 11:44 PM, PST | PopStar | See recent PopStar news »

Chris Weitz had a tough act to follow. The talented writer-producer-director had directed such films as American Pie (1999), About a Boy (2002), and The Golden Compass (2007), and now he's the man behind the camera on one of the year's most breathlessly anticipated movies, The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009). Just that title alone clues you into the myriad tasks and quandaries at hand for Weitz: he was stepping into an existing franchise that got off to a blockbuster start last year with Twilight (2008); he was taking over from another director (Catherine Hardwicke) with an entirely different style; he was inheriting a cast -- including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner -- already intimately familiar with their respective roles, and he was directing a movie that was no longer just a sequel to a popular movie, but rather the next installment in a billion-dollar phenomenon. PopStar recently spoke with Weitz by telephone »

'Paranormal Activity' Director Oren Peli On What Scares Him During Halloween

26 October 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Halloween is on Saturday. Most of you probably know this already. What you may not know is that we've got a full week of crazy Halloween coverage for you here on MTV Movies Blog. Exclusive clips and photos. Interviews. Lists. Blog posts from guest writer (and "The Box director) Richard Kelly. Perhaps even a virgin sacrifice or two, provided we can find some willing readers. Note to willing readers: you can volunteer your immortal soul to us at tips@mtvmoviesblog.com.

The week's festivities include daily lists of kickass movies to watch on or around Halloween. I know what you're thinking. "You guys always post lists on the Movies Blog." Well yes, that's very true. But these lists were picked by celebrities! People who understand what real fear is. First up for the week is Oren Peli, director of the hugely successful "Paranormal Activity." Since he's been so busy scaring us all, »

Scenes We Love: The Others

19 October 2009 5:48 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

There's just not enough ghost movies made these days, and certainly not enough good ones. Few filmmakers opt for Gothic manors, fog, and squeaky doors over the flashy "ghost" splatter-fests on display in The House on Haunted Hill and the 13 Ghosts remakes. I'm not sure why more directors don't opt to play in the spirit world, as I think movies like The Changeling, Paranormal Activity, and even The Blair Witch Project show that audiences can be scared with very little. As Jaws famously proved, it's what you don't see that's frightening, especially when you're dealing with the world of the living and the dead.

I think Alejandro Amenabar's The Others is one of the finest "haunted house" movies ever made. I watched it again last night, and I'm surprised at how little actually happens in this movie. When I first saw it in the theater, it seemed to be a symphony of voices, »

Movies That Put the Owee in Halloween

7 October 2009 10:04 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s that time of year again.  The pumpkins are out, the leaves are turning colors, the air is brisk and chilly.  It’s time for the spooky stories, the frightening films, the maybe not so scary but at times certainly inventive costumes and that most important element…..candy corn.  Yes folks, Halloween season is upon us once again.

My yearly tradition on All Hallows Eve is to hole up in my house, turn off all the lights and settle in to a nice good ole fashioned Horror movie.  What other way to celebrate right?  I figured this would be the perfect time to run down a list movies that fit this time of year perfectly.  Let’s run them down by letter shall we?

Who are the Greatest All-Time Scream Queens?

16 September 2009 12:49 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With this week's release of Jennifer's Body it is inevitable the topic of scream queens will come up, and even if it doesn't... I'm bringing it up, but not in the form of a top ten. I really don't see how you can rank these ladies, or what purpose it would serve as several could take the top spot and the others all coming in a close second. They all bring a little something special to each of their films and remain memorable for their performances. So I present you a selection of classic scream queens, including all-timers such as Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh and Fay Wray, a few of my own favorites and a selection of memorable extras at the very end. However, once you look through my list tell me who I left off and who your favorite scream queens are. I think I've taken care of many of the obvious choices, »

Tiff Review: Agora

13 September 2009 5:03 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

"If you choose to do nothing, though, you will continue to do the same thing over and over again."

Hypatia (Rachel Weisz), Agora

To some, the name Alejandro Amenábar sparks instant interest. But if it does not, let me refresh your memory. In 1997, he wrote (with Mateo Gil) and directed the Spanish film Open Your Eyes -- which North American audiences know better by its ultra-strange U.S. remake Vanilla Sky. 2001 marked his English film premiere, the eerie Nicole Kidman thriller The Others (the only feature Gil hasn't co-written). And then in 2004, he went back to Spanish filmmaking with the Javier Bardem-starring Oscar winner The Sea Inside. Now he's grabbed the likes of Rachel Weisz, Max Minghella, and Oscar Isaac for a film that doesn't journey through facial reconstruction, ghosts, or euthanasia. It's a gorgeous, thought-provoking Roman epic called Agora.

The film focuses on one of the most impressive »

Harpers Island (DVD Review)

7 September 2009 10:00 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Grabbing my late-night viewing snack, the “thwrick” of the TV snaps on and I “thump” back onto the couch.  The hesitant “tick…tick” of the clock is heard overhead as time seems to suddenly stop.  The sandpaper, “thrush” of my jittery fingers drag the volume up on the TV; “nick, nick” the volume rises.  All of these exonerated, over-the-top emotions are courtesy of the brilliant and nail-biting CBS television show Harper’S Island. 

The series, being dealt the DVD edition treatment this week from CBS DVD, is a series I originally looked over this past spring season.  The show, created by Ari Schlossberg, who penned the 2005 horror/thriller Hide And Seek, and from Executive Producer Jon Turteltaub, who helmed the other CBS hit Jericho, take us on a wild gut-wrenching thriller ride.  Excellently these two masterminds have brought us a series that is unique and original, something that horror and »

Returning from Harper’S Island, Fango chats with star Elaine Cassidy

7 September 2009 1:09 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

With the upcoming release of the DVD edition of the fantastic murder-mystery CBS series, Harper’S Island, Fango has had the pleasure of chatting with the magnificent and stunning Elaine Cassidy.  Besides playing the enthralling character of Abby Mills in Harper’S Island, Cassidy has also been seen in the beautifully terrifying film, The Others (2001) and the 2003 music video, “The Scientist”, with Coldplay front man Chris Martin, to name just a few.

Born in Ireland, this actress has become successfully known in Europe as well as the U.S. film circuits, noting that, “I think the biggest cultural differences are peoples consumptions at breakfast and lunch times.”  With the success of the CBS series, this is surely to be a launching point for the young actress who is expecting her first child with husband Stephen Lord; whom she recently worked with.  Humorously she notes, “…my biggest project is currently being baked. »

28 August 2009 8:29 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Also found on the official website for Alejandro Amenábar's Agora are these four beautifully conceived character posters. We featured the trailer yesterday, which gave you a small glimpse at the epic story and what to expect from the film.
