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.

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. »

Brittany Murphy Tweets From Peter Facinelli, Paris Hilton And Others In Another Twitter-Wood Early Edition

21 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Earlier today, we brought you an early edition of Twitter-Wood packed chock-full of celebrity praise for James Cameron's sci-fi epic, "Avatar." It's a much more tragic set of circumstances that brings me back to you with another Twitter-Wood early edition.

"Clueless" star Brittany Murphy left us suddenly over the weekend, the victim of a heart attack at the too-young age of 32. The breaking news resulted in an outpouring of grief and sympathy for Murphy's family from around the celebrity Twittersphere. I'll let the people who knew her take it from here...

@ParisHilton So sad to hear about Brittany Murphy, such a tragedy. She was such a beautiful, funny and sweet girl. My heart goes out to her family.

-Paris Hilton, Actress ("The Hottie and the Nottie," "House of Wax")

@peterfacinelli Brittany Murphy... U were Bold, Brave, and Beautiful. Thank you 4 being the free spirit u were, and always »

Open Forum Friday: Are Script Review Sites Good or Bad?

11 December 2009 1:20 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Well it's been an interesting week for screenwriting news. The 2009 Black List [1] was just unveiled today, which is the list of top unproduced screenplays currently floating around Hollywood. This "underground" compilation of rankings was started by Universal exec Franklin Leonard a few years ago in order to draw attention to some of the great scripts that deserve a chance at getting made into movies. (Strangely, some of the top picks this year are already currently in production, so I'm not sure how they can still be considered "unproduced".) This comes hot on the heels of a recent blog post [2] from screenwriter John August (Charlie's Angels, Big Fish, The Nines) in which he criticizes script review websites such as ScriptShadow [3], who post opinions on leaked screenplays before the movies are ever produced. August believes that these sites hurt screenwriters more than they help, because they spoil plot elements, pass judgment on »

Burton & Depp’s ‘Dark Shadows’ To Shoot Next Year

8 December 2009 8:50 AM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

One of cinema’s great cinematic pairings is Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, who as of their latest project, the highly anticipated adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, have worked together seven times. It’s a pairing that has worked very well every single time (as far as I’m concerned).

It’s no surprise then that the duo are continuing to work together, with a feature film adaptation of ABC’s 1960s gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows, being next on their slate. This project has been rumored for a very long time, with Depp finally coming on-board (along with his company) to produce in 2007 and Burton coming onboard as director in 2008.


Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory scribe, John August, wrote the Dark Shadows screenplay, and just this summer Depp confirmed it’s definitely happening and that he’d be starring in it, if and when the project gets off the ground. »

Decade in Review: 2003 Top Ten

8 December 2009 6:30 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As you may have noticed, I will not be done with my Decade in Review until sometime into the new year. Hopefully we'll wrap up shortly after the Oscars; You know how distractingly all-consuming the Oscars can be! I hope you'll stay with it even though the rest of the media will move on any second now. They're always in such a rush. No stopping and smelling of the flowers. I've still got to update that "Actors of the Aughts" project for final compilation/statement. For now, let's move on to 2003. What follows is my original top ten list, based on films released in NYC in 2003. If I have anything new to say that'll be in red after the original text.

Special Mentions: The Cremaster Cycle and Angels in America

Most Underappreciated: Hulk (Ang Lee), In the Cut (Jane Campion), Anything Else (Woody Allen), Charlies Angels: Full Throttle (McG) and »

Dark Shadows Begins Next Year

8 December 2009 4:52 AM, PST | | See recent news »

It has seemed like we have announced about eight or nine times that Dark Shadows would be the next film on Tim Burton’s plate.  In looking back over the site, I see that it was only once, but, still, news of its proposed start date on production has been a long time coming.  Sci-Fi Wire caught up with producer Graham King who claims the film will begin shooting next year.

We’re actually going to shoot that film next September/October with Tim Burton and Johnny.

King also went on to talk about how he is beginning preparations for the film while Burton finishes up his work on Alice In Wonderland.

We’ve been working on the script a lot, even though he’s working on Alice.  We’ve been given a script. John August wrote the first screenplay. We’re making some changes, but the film’s going to be in production, »

Twitter-Wood had plenty to celebrate this weekend, with a mini "Full House" reunion between John Stamos and Candace Cameron to Brett Ratner's wrap on his new Mariah Carey video and Greg Mottola's pre-release praise for Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World."

Elsewhere, "Eclipse" actor BooBoo Stewart is still making his photography rounds, this time picking Hugh Jackman's nose -- and Wolverine looks shockingly comfortable with the pose. Check out those posts after the jump along with Steve Agee's porn benefit surprise and Alex Meraz's stolen jacket shocker. It's all in the Twitter-Wood report for December 7, 2009.

Tiger Woods, 'New Moon' And Homemade 'Toy Story' Models In Today's Twitter-Wood

30 November 2009 4:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Tiger Woods was a hot topic on Twitter this weekend, and that meant he became a trending topic in Twitter-Wood. Somehow his Cadillac Escalade has become a subject of interest too, particularly with one "Harper's Island" actor who pointed out that the golfer wasn't driving a Buick.

"Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich, meanwhile, retweeted some great shots of homemade models based on the Disney-Pixar series, they're mighty impressive. Also impressive has been the performance by "New Moon" in theaters this month, but Jim Carrey took note of the movie's rabid fans and issues a warning in response. Check out those tweets along with sad news from Emmy Rossum, how to get to Sesame Street and Sarah Silverman's reaction to "Precious." It's all waiting after the jump in the Twitter-Wood report for November 30, 2009.

Vanity Fair handicaps the Oscar race and makes a case for Fantastic Mr Fox costumes (hmmm) but falls into the age old lazy schpiel about "not enough best actresses to fill a category".

Ken Ober, The 'New Moon' Red Carpet And Neil Patrick Harris In Today's Twitter-Wood

17 November 2009 3:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Last night got busy in Twitter-Wood on a few fronts. Former "Remote Control" host Ken Ober's passing surprised a number of tweeters, including Brian Posehn and Jeff Katz, who both noted his loss.

L.A.'s Westwood village theatre, meanwhile, was epicenter for all of the "Twilight" Twitterverse during the "New Moon" premiere. BooBoo Stewart posted a pic from the red carpet, Rachelle Lefevre posted her reasons for missing the event, Brett Ratner was in attendance and Kevin Smith made a date out of the night with his daughter. You can check out what they had to say after the jump along with Twitter Pic pick that I selected more for its significance than its shock value, as Neil Patrick Harris officially moved into the Twitter-Wood neighborhood. It's all in the report for November 17, 2009.

1908 Burgess Meredith two time Oscar nominee. But no, not for the Penguin in Batman: The Movie. Those honors came back to back in his late 60s for Rocky and The Day of the Locust.

1964 Harry Lennix best known for his TV work in shows like Dollhouse and Commander in Chief but he's cut an imposing figure in the movies too (Titus, the Matrix trilogy). But yes Dollhouse was cancelled last week. sigh.

1967 Lisa Bonet mostly retired actress, Huxtable, one of Marisa Tomei's besties

1970 Martha Plimpton. My friends have this thing where they cast the book they've just read for their book club each month. It's their tradition that they have to give 80s teen film star turned ubiquitous Broadway thespian a role in every film. »

Bill Birch and Geoff Johns "Starting Fresh" With Shazam! Adaptation

11 November 2009 1:12 AM, PST | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

When young Billy Batson says "Shazam," he transforms into the adult superhero Captain Marvel. The character is nearly as old — and as powerful — as DC Comics' premiere hero, Superman. Yet, he's had far less exposure than the Man of Steel. In fact, most people who recognize Captain Marvel think his name is actually the magic word he says to access his powers. This name confusion stems partially from the fact that DC Comics is forced to market Captain Marvel under the name Shazam! because Marvel Comics owns the rights to the name.

Captain Marvel has appeared in film serials, a live-action TV show, and several cartoon series. There's also long been talk of adapting the comic book into a live-action movie along the lines of Big meets Superman. New Line Cinema had been working on an adaptation but when it folded, the scripter of the intended adaptation, John August »

Is John Cusack Chasing A 'Preacher' Role?

6 November 2009 12:16 PM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

With all the hub-bub surrounding the 20th anniversary of "Say Anything," it seems a little weird to think of actor John Cusack as a potential lead for "Preacher," Sam Mendes' in-development adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's very adult-oriented comic book series. However, that could indeed be the one comic book movie he's chasing these days—or something very similar to it.

In an interview with io9, Cusack described a comic book movie floating around Hollywood that he's trying to get involved with—and the description sounds an awful lot like a certain story about an ex-Preacher, his trigger-happy girlfriend and a vampire who set out to teach God a lesson.

"It's a vampire and a killer, and they're on the road, and it's this really strange story," said Cusack.

Asked whether it "Preacher" he was thinking of, Cusack said, "I think it might have been 'Preacher, »

Cow films appear to be the official successor to the unseen prequels tag that was trending on Twitter earlier this week. Both Jon Favreau and Steve Agee made contributions today, while John August offered some criticism of ABC's new "V" series and Brian Lynch commemorated the 40th birthday of "Sesame Street."

In the "Twilight" neighborhood of Twitter-Wood, meanwhile, Peter Facinelli discussed an accidental oversleeping incident that resulted in a late arrival on-set. David Slade responded by thanking him for not ever being late during "Eclipse." Check out all of those tweets after the jump. It's all in the Twitter-Wood report for November 4, 2009.

Movies We Love: Big Fish

16 September 2009 2:51 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Big Fish (2003) It doesn't make sense, and most of it didn't happen. Synopsis Will Bloom struggles to reconnect with his father Edward as Ed's entire life is retold in epic, tall tale-style. Why We Love It First and foremost, I should admit that most of the reason I love Big Fish is that I've seen it 15 times and cried every single time. Its light and airy, creative with a great sense of humor, and yet the true story of a lost connection between a father and son is important enough to get those waterworks going every time. The main reason this movie is so great is the story itself. It's a return to a storytelling that we'd forgotten about. The recreation of fairy tales that are brand new but seem familiar. Every segment of Edward Bloom's life is mostly believable and just partially fantastical. Instead of delving deep into a false world, Tim Burton »
