Brittany Murphy’s death certificate has been filed and states that the manner of her death is “pending investigation”, according to reports. The immediate cause of the 32-year-old actress’s sudden death says “deferred” on the certificate, which was filed in Los Angeles earlier today. The Los Angeles Coroner’s office is still awaiting toxicology and tissue tests, before determining the exact cause of death. Murphy died on 20 December, after reportedly suffering cardiac arrest at her Hollywood Hills home. An array of prescription drugs were found in her bedroom, coroner’s officers have confirmed. The Sin City star’s funeral was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in La on Christmas Eve. The results of Murphy’s toxicology tests »

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.

I can’t remember why, I’ve slept since then, but, in January of 2000, I found myself sitting in front of a blank Word document. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do, and, now, 10 years later, I’m still working strong at it. I began keeping a sort of diary, listing the days and months and putting down the films I saw in the theater into it. I don’t remember why I only included movies I saw in the theater. I could have started just as an idea-giver on how many movies I actually saw each year (I also kept a running count each year). It began on January 7th, 2000, when I entered Bicentennial Man as my first film in this long and ever-growing endeavor.
In 2000, I saw 166 films in the theater. There were many a high (seeing Gladiator on May 5th and »
What's worth checking out inside?
The Winter movie release schedule for 2010 is pretty much a roll-of-the-dice for moviegoers. Obvious choices like Shutter Island and Alice in Wonderland will attract audiences for a variety of reasons. Will there be anything else that will standout over the next few months though? Here's a look at some possible flicks to check out and ones you may want to avoid.
2010 begins with the uber-popular vampire genre in Daybreakers. Vampires are still a draw these days and that alone will have people heading to the theaters. Having a top-notch cast that includes Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe could give this movie some life (pun intended). The story seems to be predictable though, and having vampires that aren't terrifying is getting a bit stale. In the end, fangs=$$$. This is one of those times where one should read the critics take on this before going in blind. »
Socialite Paris Hilton has walked down the aisle with America's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan. The happy couple exchanged I Dos in a 15-minute ceremony at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas. But the whole ceremony was just a stunt for Morgan's latest upcoming TV special, Piers Morgan On.... Las Vegas. Hilton showed off her sense of humour when she agreed to 'marry' the former Brit journalist and donned a long white bridal gown and veil. The 'couple' then exchanged vows and rings in front of witnesses including an Elvis Presley impersonator and a Marilyn Monroe lookalike. And the 28-year-old blonde insists the low-key celebration was typical of Sin City's shenanigans as »

The socialite showed off her sense of humour when she agreed to 'marry' the America's Got Talent judge in a staged 15-minute ceremony at the Little Church of the West for the upcoming U.K. programme Piers Morgan On... Las Vegas.
Morgan jokes, "You know what it's like - you have a few drinks, spend too long on the blackjack table, get overexcited and do something silly. I have to say, Paris scrubbed up to be a beautiful bride. It was magical."
The fake nuptials served as a useful practice session for Morgan, who proposed to journalist Celia Walden in Paris, France earlier this month. »
At the end of the year, and especially the decade, you’re inundated with enough top lists that they themselves should be ranked. Plenty of other websites and other media outlets have been counting down basically the same best movies, which is partially the reason I spared you the numbered trips down memory lane. (But before I write myself into a hypocritical corner, I’ll still be doing my traditional top movies of the year list. Hint: New Moon isn’t on it)
That being said, here are two definitive lists of note that highlight what was critically lauded this decade on RottenTomatoes.com and what the movie fans and voters on IMDb.com felt were the best the aughts had to offer. Slashfilm compiled the top 20 from Rt and they snatched up the top 25 off IMDb for your look at how the decade fared in movies.
There are a few surprises on both lists, »

So you’ve unwrapped all of your Christmas presents, received three copies of District 9 from multiple uncommunicative family members, and the year of 2009 is about to be wrapped up. The debate is over: 2009 has been a great year for film. So what do you do now?
Why, start thinking about what’s around the corner, of course!
While there’s less in the way of interesting sci-fi, as 2009 will surely be remembered for, 2010 has plenty of interesting new films in store, as well as some remakes, reboots and sequels. Here’s a list of the 15 most anticipated films of 2010, in order of release, followed by a minefield of movies you might consider avoiding.

So, here they are, accompanied by the year of release and number of votes received. They are ranked based on a combination of total votes and overall rating (which I didn’t include). So there are films that have more votes than others before them, but rank lower on the list due to their overall rating:

What does it say about our society if even Hollywood starlets don't feel up to much?
Did Hollywood kill Brittany Murphy, the Sin City actress who died of a heart attack? Her half-brother, Jeff Bertolotti, seems to think so. He said: "People come with their dreams and get chewed up alive and those who make it get chewed up alive anyway."
Murphy, 32, was said to suffer from a heart murmur and a food disorder. Reports state that up to 10 types of prescription drugs were found in her home – for bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety and to stop seizures. There were also pain-relief pills, for what has been widely described as a "plastic surgery addiction" – breast job, nose job, lip job and liposuction – a list that can only be viewed with sadness and anger.
No one is claiming that Murphy was one of the acting greats but she does not deserve to »

A funeral service for the late Brittany Murphy has been set, and it will take place on Christmas Eve, December 24, five days after her sudden passing. While it is still unclear who will attend the service, Radar Online reported on the one who is not invited, that is the father of the "Sin City" actress.
Angelo Bertolotti, who had been estranged from Murphy for the past eight years, told the site that even if he is invited, he won't come because he is too saddened by her death. "I just don't want to see that happen, I just want to remember her alive," he stated, adding that he'll visit her grave later on. "I'll wait about a month to go out there," so he said.
Meanwhile, a recently-issued press release confirmed that the 32-year-old actress will be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles. »
