Best of the Decade: Honourable Mentions

31 December 2009 1:21 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

In narrowing down our favourite movies of the decade to just 20, obviously there were plenty of amazing films that ended up getting ignored. Before posting our individual Top 50 lists, I thought it would be worth highlighting just a few more picks that barely missed making our consensus list for one reason or another. Most of these were still nominated by at least 3 of us, but may have had extenuating circumstances surrounding their exclusion. The Incredibles (2004) and Ratatouille (2007) I'm surprised that more people haven't complained about the lack of a Pixar presence on our Top 20 list, but I'm here to clear that up right now. Although we are not the biggest Pixar fanboys on the planet, I think we can all agree that they deserve to be acknowledged for their achievements in pushing animation forward and creating many of the biggest critical and commercial hits of the decade. The truth is, »

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

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. »

Penguins, Nicole Kidman and Narnia – Paul Howlett picks his film highlights

Christmas Eve

Over the Hedge

(Tim Johnson, Karey Kirkpatrick, 2006) 4.25pm, BBC1

A DreamWorks animated adventure in which Rj, the cynical racoon (laconically voiced by Bruce Willis) teaches a burrowful of innocent woodland animals to forage off the waste of an encroaching housing estate rather than rely on boring old natural food, before inevitably seeing the error of his ways. Plenty of good slapstick fun for kids and cine-literate gags for adults, although it all seems a bit glib compared to Shrek and co.

Corpse Bride

(Tim Burton, Mike Johnson, 2005) 6pm, ITV1

Life, in Burton's typically weird and ghoulish fantasy, is a dull, grey affair: death is much more colourful and fun, as young Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp) discovers when he is whisked into the underworld by the maggoty Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter). Trouble is, he's in love »

Yes Man (Peyton Reed, 2008)

10am, 8pm, Sky Movies Premiere

Remember Jim Carrey in Liar, Liar, where he forces himself to tell the truth for 24 hours? Well, here Jim Carrey forces himself to answer yes to any request, for a year. Which is upping the ante somewhat, but doesn't make it a better film. This is a return to the manic, gurning, not-very-funny Carrey, as if The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine etc hadn't happened. Just say no.

The Golden Compass (Chris Weitz, 2007)

Austin Film Critics Agree, The Hurt Locker is Best of ‘09

16 December 2009 7:05 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The wonderful group of fine professional film critics and journalists known as the Austin Film Critics Association -- a group that includes the membership of yours truly and Fsr Managing Editor Dr. Cole Abaius -- has announced its award winners for the year 2009. Within said winners are plenty of unsurprising results, including the unanimous support for Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, which took home Best Picture, Best Director and Best Cinematography. We also delivered the Best Actor award to Colin Firth, whose performance in A Single Man seems to have him right in the Oscar hunt with George Clooney (Up in the Air) and Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart). Among the surprises, Mélanie Laurent came out of nowhere to take Best Actress for her role in Inglourious Basterds, with co-star Christoph Waltz winning yet another Best Supporting Actor award (I wonder if he'll win the Oscar...) Two fantastic choices (my votes, for »

Decade in Review: 2004 Top Ten

14 December 2009 6:56 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Moving on to 2004. What follows is my original top ten list, based on films released in NYC in 2004. If I have anything new to say that'll be in red after the original text.

Top Ten Runners Up (in descending order): Aviator, Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Mean Girls, Maria Full of Grace, The Five Obstructions, Collateral, Goodbye Lenin!, Birth and Closer Yes, I'm absolutely horrified by the rankings now. Nothing about that ranking feels right now. I am most ashamed that Birth was only at number [cough] 19 in its year. In my self-flattering memory I "almost" put it in the top ten despite the then brutal reviews. I was ahead of my time! Oh well... at least I did actually name it the #1 most underappreciated film of the year. At the time I said...

Jonathan Glazer made a significant splash four years ago when his brilliantly acted heist film Sexy Beast »

John’s Top Eleven Films of the Decade

6 December 2009 3:47 PM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

I was just under 11 years old as we entered the 2000s, and in the last decade I have made it my mission to fill the space in my mind that should be reserved for academics to remembering the details of far too many films. In looking back upon this decade, it seems that we’ve had quite a good chunk of time for movies — there are only two years absent on my top ten list: 2000 and 2005, while 2006 is represented by three films. I still cheated, though, by extending my list to eleven entries. Some were just too good to decide between.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. And before you start — don’t cry. The Dark Knight isn’t on here.

11. The Royal Tenenbaums – 2001

Spoiler: you’re going to find that comedy is slightly underrepresented on this list, with Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums »

The Naughts: The Buddy Pair of the '00s

1 December 2009 1:04 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Nobody in the film business has had as good a decade as the folks at Pixar Animation Studios. They released seven films in ten years, all of them box office hits, all of them critical successes. Four of them won Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature (and the past summer's "Up" stands a good chance to make it five).

Because of the studio's incredible run of creativity, Pixar filmmakers are often asked to explain the secret of the company's success. In an interview with Movie City News' David Poland, "Finding Nemo" and "Wall-e" director Andrew Stanton cited a meeting the company's brain trust held shortly after the release of "Toy Story" to assess exactly what went right that time so that they could be sure to repeat that formula in the future. As Stanton explained it, "We felt that it was a weird, perfect symbiotic combination of there [being] one visionary »

Directors of the Decade: Brad Bird

21 November 2009 7:34 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Robert here. My initial thought for my series on the directors who shaped the past decade was to combine the Pixar guys into one big entry. Five minutes later I was filled with great shame. How dare I think that just because these men make animated films, they don’t deserve their own entries. It was ghettoization all over again! Sure, Pixar films all tend to have similar themes but that doesn’t mean that the great Pixar directors are interchangeable. Over the next few weeks we’ll take a look at them and see what makes them the same and different. First up: Brad Bird.

Number of Films: Two.

Modern Masterpieces: One. With my apologies to The Incredibles, which is an incredible film, the masterpiece is Ratatouille.

Total Disasters: Not even close.

Better than you remember: If you think either of these could be better, you should probably just stop reading now. »

Blu-Ray Review: Pixar’s HD Collection Continues With ‘Monsters, Inc.’

19 November 2009 2:49 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – As Disney/Pixar continues to release new films on Blu-Ray, they often “piggy-back” one title with another from their catalog, choosing to release Pete Docter’s first directorial effort for the company, “Monsters, Inc.” in HD on the same day that they release his new film, “Up”. In a beautiful 4-disc combo pack that includes Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital copies of the film, “Monsters, Inc.” continues the Pixar Blu-Ray tradition.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

John Goodman and Billy Crystal star as the lovable-and-gigantic Sulley and his wisecracking sidekick Mike Wazowski, respectively. Sulley and Mike work for a scream-processing factory in Monstropolis known as “Monsters, Inc.” A little girl named Boo finds her way into the world, scaring the monsters in return, and it’s up to Sulley and Mike to restore order and get the wee one back home where she belongs.

Monsters, Inc. was released on Blu-Ray and DVD on November 10th, »

Blu-Ray Review: Pixar’s Beloved ‘Up’ Continues HD Dominance

17 November 2009 9:21 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – One of the most beloved films of the year and a likely contender for the Oscar for Best Picture now that the category has expanded to ten nominees, Pixar’s “Up” was recently released on Blu-Ray in yet another lovingly produced set from a company that has been a pioneer in the next-gen format. “Up” doesn’t exceed expectations but also doesn’t falter from the critically-acclaimed pattern.

Blu-Ray Rating: 5.0/5.0

Pixar has built a reputation by taking unexpected character models and turning them into movie magic. Whether it be toys that come to life, a refined rat, a family of superheroes, or a lovable robot, one never can judge a Pixar character by its cover. Such is the case with Carl Fredericksen (Ed Asner), the delightful hero of “Up” who just happens to be a crotchety old man.

Up was released on Blu-Ray and DVD on November 10th, 2009.

Lasseter to receive PGA Selznick Award

21 October 2009 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Producers Guild of America will honor Disney/Pixar animation whiz John Lasseter with its 2010 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures at the 21st annual PGA Awards ceremony on Jan. 24 at the Hollywood Palladium.

Lasseter, who holds the title of chief creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, is the first producer of animated films to be awarded the Selznick, which is given in recognition of a body of work.

He was the co-recipient of the PGA's first-ever Vanguard Award in 2002.

"John Lasseter is a uniquely talented producer with the rare combination of technical ingenuity and creative vision. He's a wonderful storyteller, consistently displaying extraordinary skill, humanity and grace," said David Friendly and Laurence Mark, co-chairs of the PGA Awards.

Lasseter has picked up two Oscars -- one for the short film "Tin Toy" and the other a special achievement award for 1995's "Toy Story" -- and directed "Toy Story, »

Disney/Pixar's John Lasseter Talks 'Rapunzel' Casting, 'Toy Story 3' Plot, 'Cars 2', 'Winnie the Pooh' and More!

13 September 2009 3:02 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Spoiler alert: The Marvel / Pixar Ant-Man rumors flying around are purely that ... rumor. That's according to John Lasseter, who headlined an enormous Disney Animation / Pixar presentation this morning. We spoke with him at a press conference afterwards, where he squashed the Ant-Man rumors, and wouldn't comment on possible sequels to The Incredibles or Monsters, Inc. He also said they have no plans to reopen the closed Disney Orlando animation studios, and when we asked him how they'll handle Doc's (Paul Newman) absence in Cars 2, to which he replied "You'll see."

Plus he had no news whatsoever of any Disney/Pixar/Marvel plans, although I guess that's hardly surprising since the ink is still drying on that contract.

That's the big news about what he didn't clue us in on. So what did he tell us? We found out that Rapunzel will feature the voice of Mandy Moore as Rapunzel, and »

D23 Expo: Lasseter on Ant-Man & Possible Pixar Sequels

13 September 2009 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Following his presentation this morning at Anaheim's D23 Expo, John Lasseter held a press conference, fielding questions about upcoming projects, including dismissing a rumor that Pixar may be looking at Marvel Studios' Ant-Man and offering a sly "no comment" on potential sequels to other Pixar properties. "I had met all the folks from Marvel a couple of times and they're terrific," says Lasseter, a man of few words regarding Pixar's interest in Marvel properties, "The whole 'Ant-Man' thing is just a rumor." Lasseter also played it coy with another question, asking whether or not the future might hold sequels to Monsters, Inc. or The Incredibles . "That's a great question," says Lasseter, "Unfortunately, I can't answer that »

Pixar's Lasseter Receives Golden Lion Accolade In Venice

7 September 2009 3:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Disney/Pixar animator John Lasseter has been honoured at the Venice Film Festival in Italy with a prestigious Golden Lion award in recognition of his career achievements.

The illustrator was hailed by his peers on Sunday at a ceremony that also paid tribute to Lasseter's bosses, Disney/Pixar directors Brad Bird, Peter Doctor, Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich.

Iconic filmmaker George Lucas - who sold off Pixar in 1986 - presented the awards to the group, congratulating the honorees as members of "my little backroom operation that started in 1979".

Accepting his prize, Lasseter said, "Pixar is founded on true creative collaboration.

"These (Disney/Pixar executives) are my best friends and my brothers in creative filmmaking. Our dream is always simple: to entertain our audiences around the world, everybody."

The Disney/Pixar animators are the brains behind the hit movies Finding Nemo, Toy Story, The Incredibles and Wall-e. »

Pixar Team Honored at Venice Film Festival

7 September 2009 11:41 AM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

For the first time ever, an entire studio has been given career recognition at the Venice Film Festival! And that honor goes to Pixar.

The home of Nemo, Woody, and Wall-e received the lifetime achievement award! And it's truly deserving!

The award was given to five Pixar directors including John Lasseter (the first two "Toy Story" films and "Cars"), Brad Bird ("Ratatouille" and "The Incredibles"), Pete Docter ("Up" and "Monsters Inc."), Andrew Stanton ("Finding Nemo" and "Wall-e"), and Lee Unkrich ("Toy Story 3").

Pixar, founded in 1986, has made 10 feature films to date. 4 of those movies have won Oscars!

To make the joyous occasion, the festival premiered 3-D versions of "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2." Both 3-D versions will be shown in the fall.

Pixar merged with Disney three years ago, and the audience was also treated to a few minutes of "The Princess and the Frog." Lasseter, chief creative for both Pixar and Disney animation, »
