28 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

So, as the music builds to its inevitable crescendo, the camera slowly pans heavenwards and the credits duly roll on yet another year a legion of movie lovers loyally raise their glasses, stare wistfully into the middle distance and thus share fond, warm and altogether welcome memories of the last twelve months of movie making magic.

And with the curtains already beginning to close on us, the foyer slowly emptying and the hulking behemoth that is 2011 looming ominously on the aspect ratioed horizon what better opportunity is there to jump in our DeLoreans and take a nostalgic look back at the past ten years of cinematic splendour in order to pick out ten films that shone like precious jewels from the cavernous depths of 2001 to 2010.

Indeed, you needn’t look too far to stumble across a proliferation of end of the year “Best Of” lists literally bulging at the seams »

Animated Adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Holiday Poem Nicholas Was

24 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Check out this Christmas card adaptation of a wonderful poem, 'Nicholas Was', by Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Coraline) from 39 Degrees North. According to the Motion & Design Studio: We started down a rather unconventional route for our Christmas card this year and there was simply no turning back. The pull of the dark side was just too strong. 39 Degrees North: Christmas Card 2010 from 39 Degrees North on Vimeo. »

Top Ten Movies for the Holidays

21 December 2010 11:47 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. With Honors (1994)

Not a film that pops up on most holiday lists, however, With Honors exudes the quintessential holiday spirit with a memorable final act, thoroughly laced with virtue, love and friendship. With Honors is the story of smug Harvard student; Montgomery Kessler (the name aptly characterizes Brendan Fraser) who meets squatter Simon (the one and only Joe Pesci) in the basement of the school library after his computer crashes jeopardizing his ticket to success – his final thesis. The one hard copy lands in Simon’s hands, and here’s the hook – for every day’s shelter and food that Monty provides, Simon will give him on page of his thesis back. A ransom of sorts that climaxes with Monty’s realization of what is truly worth striving for in life. This early 90’s film feels like a hiccup to the mastery of the great John Hughes’ movies of the 80’s. »

Golden Globe Nominations, Julian Assange And 'The Fighter' In Today's Twitter-Wood

14 December 2010 2:17 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

You definitely haven't seen Christian Serratos in the "Twilight" series wearing the kind of makeup she put on for a Black Keys video in her feed this week. She and Danny Masterson both sported some new looks and posted pics.

The big trending topic in international news today, though, was WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange getting granted bail in London, where Michael Moore stepped in and got personally involved. His reaction to the situation and a roundup of Golden Globe nomination chatter have been retweeted for you after the jump.

John Cameron Mitchell to Collaborate with Comic Icons Neil Gaiman and Dash Shaw

13 December 2010 12:04 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While promoting his latest, the Nicole Kidman drama Rabbit Hole, director John Cameron Mitchell, the always daring filmmaker who created Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus, is already teasing some of his future productions. According to Playlist, Mitchell will be collaborating with two comic book visionaries: Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button and BodyWorld) and Neil Gaiman, author of the award-winning Sandman series.

With Shaw, Mitchell will be producing an animated feature, and assures, “It’s not based on anything. It’s original. It’s called The Ruined Cast. It’s going to be 2D. It’s going to be weird, surreal… Well you know his style. I keep comparing it to Philip K. Dick meets The Simpsons. And it’s brilliant. He’s gone through all the Sundance labs this year. And I’m producing it with the producer of Shortbus. We’re just finishing the script and we »

Dreamworks Announces New Original Project ‘Me and My Shadow’

10 December 2010 10:51 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you were wondering whether there would be any 3D computer-animated films in theaters two years from now, we’ve got your answer. Today, Dreamworks Animation Skg, Inc. announced its new original project,  Me and My Shadow, is slated to hit screens in March 2013.

Me and My Shadow tells the story of Shadow Stan, a frustrated shadow who dreams of leading an exciting life. Unfortunately, he’s stuck trailing Stanley Grubb, the most boring man in the world. When he can’t stand his dull existence one second longer, he breaks the only rule of the shadow world, “They lead, we follow,” and takes direct control of Grubb.

Dreamworks is using this film to pioneer what it calls a “groundbreaking” combination of seamlessly blended computer-generated and traditional animation techniques in 3D. The studio impressed us this year with How to Train Your Dragon, so it’s safe to assume Me »

10 December 2010 8:27 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

DreamWorks Animation dropped off a press release this morning announcing a new 3D animated film called Me and My Shadow. There's no voice cast yet, but the plot will follow "Shadow Stan, an extremely frustrated shadow who yearns for a dynamic life but happens to be stuck with Stanley Grubb, the world's most boring human. Finally pushed to the brink, Shadow Stan breaks the singular rule of the Shadow World ("They lead, we follow"), and takes control of Stanley!" More information about the forces behind the film is after the break. Here's the hook: the film will be a mix of CG and "traditional animation techniques."

'Breaking Dawn,' Arsenic-Based Life And 'Yogi Bear' In Today's Twitter-Wood

2 December 2010 1:38 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

If you don't follow comedian Neil Hamburger's (alter ego of Gregg Turkington) Twitter account you've missed a golden month in the age of tweet humor. He's currently coming off a marathon of arbitrarily ripping into Axe body spray for insufficiently observing Tom Bosley's death, and yesterday he and Tim Heidecker launched a nuclear barrage of fake allegations against "Yogi Bear."

In other realms of the Twittersphere, Nasa's press conference about a new form of life captured many posters' imaginations, including those of Michael Ian Black and John August, who each reacted to the announcement differently. Find out what they said and who's about to get down to work on "Breaking Dawn."

WikiLeaks, The Tokyo Earthquake And 'Harry Potter' Reactions In Today's Twitter-Wood

30 November 2010 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Some Twitter-Wood citizens were shocked after the organization WikiLeaks decided to release U.S. diplomatic cables that they'd obtained over the weekend. Some responded with a total lack of surprise, such as Michael Ian Black, and at least one man just wanted to know if they were aware of where his keys might be.

A Tuesday earthquake in Japan, meanwhile, startled people as well. Olivia Wilde has a theory about why it occurred that you probably hadn't considered, while Tom Felton didn't appear to have experienced an interruption during his grocery shopping because of the quake. Find out what he was looking at in Tokyo after the jump, as well as what Rose McGowan thought of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," as well as how "Weird" Al Yankovic sees himself.

Looking back at The Witches

30 November 2010 10:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is it really 20 years since the Roald Dahl adaptation, The Witches, appeared? Yes. But it’s as worthy of your attention as ever, as Jeff explains…

"My orders are that every single child in this country shall be r-r-rubbed out, sqvashed, sqvirted, sqvittered and frrrittered," barks the Grand High Witch in Roald Dahl's The Witches, a controversial tale about 'real witches', that has pushed the fright envelope more than any other contemporary children's book or film.

It's been twenty years since one of the most unorthodox fusions of talent pooled together to scare kids silly, with Roald Dahl's source material played surprisingly close to the text, Jim Henson's muppets in full grotesque mode, and strangely enough, maverick director Nicolas Roeg at the helm of a 'children's movie'.

Dahl's spin on childhood is uniquely humorous and violent. His protagonists are often lone operators in which death is not only a fact, »

Leslie Nielsen, Irvin Kershner And Christmas Trees In Today's Twitter-Wood

29 November 2010 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Leslie Nielsen's death prompted a full day's worth of reactions in Twitter-Wood today, both from fans respectful enough not to call him "Shirley" and those who thought he would prefer to be remembered by that name. Dane Cook dedicated a show to him, while Brian Posehn shared his favorite Nielsen anecdote, and Olivia Wilde just plain misses him.

The "Star Wars" community experienced a loss as well, though, with the passing of "Empire Strikes Back" director Irvin Kershner. John Hodgman, Brian Lynch and Kyle Newman all contributed perspectives on their accounts, and Nathan Fillion shared some Christmas tree ornaments that Kershner might have appreciated.

Top 10 movies starring toys that come alive

25 November 2010 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Toy Story 3 arrives on DVD and Blu-ray, we look at other films in which toys walk and talk under their own power, and they've been doing it for quite a while too!

The Toy Story triumvirate will reign supreme among stories of toys coming to life and it's hard to imagine any single film or series that uses the premise of living playthings ever besting the perfect trio of movies.

But having given the hat trick fair praise, the toys in Andy's room weren't the first to walk and talk under their own control, and other stories feature toys springing to life when their owners aren't around or by the power of dreams and wishes, the magic of midnight or, in one case, the might of military grade munitions chips.

So, if you still have room for more childhood toy fantasies and adventures beyond Woody, Buzz and their crew, »

Justin Bieber At The AMAs, Tsa Screenings And 'Mad Men' In Today's Twitter-Wood

22 November 2010 2:45 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

American Music Awards tweets consumed most of the Twitter-Wood feed Sunday night, with Justin Bieber pulling in the most celebrity endorsements by far. Personally, however, I'd like to endorse Nathan Fillion's perspective on the evening, as he remained focused on what really matters.

Airports, however, weren't nearly as luxurious as the AMAs this weekend, and if you were flying you were probably worried about whether the Tsa was going to scan you or give you a pat-down. Samm Levine proposed a trick to beating the system, while Judd Apatow pondered parenting decisions. Find out if you agree with either of them after the jump, right beneath John Hodgman's expectations for "Mad Men" Season 5.

Smallville: Teri Hatcher’s Appearance As Ella Lane Is “Heart-Wrenching”

11 November 2010 4:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

This Friday’s episode of Smallville on The CW features Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives, Coraline) as Lois Lane’s mother, Ella Lane. In “Abandoned”, Lois finds videotapes that her mother left for her before she died.

The show’s executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson drew from a crew member’s friend’s decision to leave videos for her child after she found out she was terminally ill. Souders talked about this direction for Ella Lane and Hatcher’s performance:

“[She] sat down and made these videos for her child. What we did with Ella Lane was pull that into the show because it was so heart-wrenching.

It came together beautifully. I just watched three takes and I had to stop for a while because it was so heart-wrenching. Teri just had an incredible performance, and it was beautiful.”

Hatcher had also played Lois Lane in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman »

Coraline Blu-ray 3D at Retail in January

11 November 2010 7:21 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

For Blu-ray 3D, this past year will be remembered as the battle of hardware exclusives. More than half of the available Blu-ray 3D titles prior to November 16, such as Universal's Coraline, were only available with the purchase of a specific manufacturer's 3D package.

Next year is already shaping up to break that trend. Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced Coraline will be available at retail on Blu-ray 3D starting on January 4, 2011. Previously Coraline was only available with the purchase of Panasonic's 3D starter kit (along with Fox's Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaur) this past summer.

The Blu-ray 3D version of Coraline will additionally include the 2D version of the film in high-def and standard DVD. The only known bonus feature at this time is a feature commentary with director Henry Selick and composer Bruno Coulais that is attached to the 2D version.

Birthday Wishes for the Dream King

10 November 2010 12:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hi all, Tim here from Antagony & Ecstasy.

Today, somewhere outside Minneapolis, fantasy writer Neil Gaiman celebrates his 50th birthday (or not; birthdays don't seem to fit the persona the author has created for himself. But I don't have to care). And while he's better known for his comic books and novels than for his work in movies, his short cinematic career is filled with enough highs that it seems more than fair to commemorate the man's half-century.

Gaiman's film career got a rough start with his BBC miniseries Neverwhere: cheaply made and hurt by an underbaked structure, it's not half as memorable as the novelized version of the same story from the following year (the morbidly curious can find it on Netflix Watch Instantly). Fortunately, Gaiman first theatrical project was quite a bit more promising, as Miramax tapped him to write the 1999 English dub for Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke. The »
