Year in Review Part 2: Burn the Negatives!

30 December 2009 9:23 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The title of this post is indefensible, exclamatory (!) and puerile. But these movies piss me off and if they can be super obnoxious, so can I. Now, in truth, I probably never see the absolute "worst" of the movies that play in theaters since I can pick and choose my own film menu. My New Year's Resolution is to be more constructive when I criticize (I'm not giving up criticism. That's mother's milk). I'd also like to be more positive in 2010.

Thus, I retract the titular command: No negatives of the following movies and performances should be incinerated ... instead let them live on as cautionary tales to actors and filmmakers. People are watching. Try harder.

Worst Supporting Actor

I've already expressed my concerned about the "too much!" of Stanley Tucci's continually nominated performance in The Lovely Bones. I don't know what the hell Richard Gere was doing in Amelia, »

Lisa Schwarzbaum's 10 movie marvels of the decade

29 December 2009 9:30 AM, PST | EW.com - The Movie Critics | See recent EW.com - The Movie Critics news »

Notice I didn't say best movies -- that territory has been well covered by far more passionate list makers than I am. (By the way, do you agree with me that a devotion to ranking is primarily a male urge?  Tell me three good reasons why I'm right or wrong. At any rate, I don't have the gene for it.) As the first decade of the 21st century comes to a close, though, here's fodder for your New Year's Eve party: A list, in no particular order, of 10 movie developments from the past 10 years that have impressed, depressed, excited, upset, »

My Movie Diary (2000-2009)

28 December 2009 6:58 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

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 »

'Sherlock Holmes,' A Lost Kindle, And A Love Song To Uncle Jesse In Today's Twitter-Wood

28 December 2009 2:01 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Somewhere in Hollywood there's a lonely Kindle lying in the middle of a street, and it belongs to Paul Feig. He requested that anyone finding it let him know via Twitter today, where posting was a bit slow due to many of the movie industry's tweeters being on vacation. There were still plenty of shout-outs both good and bad about "Avatar" and "Sherlock Holmes," though, the latter of which was so packed that even Nicky Hilton couldn't get in.

There needs to be a special award for Dave Coulier today, who linked to a re-lyric'd performance of a Taylor Swift song dedicated to Uncle Jesse from "Full House" -- and anyone who follows Twitter-Wood knows that I can't resist retweeting a good "Full House" post. Check it out after the jump along with Kevin Smith's outlook on "Iron Man 2" and Brian Lynch's evaluation of his Wikipedia profile. »

McKay, Scott Speak at 'Evening With…' Events

22 December 2009 10:03 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Christian McKay has long known he bears a striking resemblance to Orson Welles and has finally made peace with it, the actor revealed at Back Stage's Dec. 14 "Evening With…" event. McKay can currently be seen playing the iconic actor-director in Richard Linklater's film "Me and Orson Welles." To prepare for the role, for which he just received a Spirit Award nomination, McKay met with many people who knew Welles, including actor Norman Lloyd. Now 97, Lloyd worked with Welles' Mercury Theatre Company and is portrayed in the film by Leo Bill. "Norman told me I channeled Orson when he saw the film," McKay revealed, "and then added, 'And it's a testament to your acting that in real life, you are nothing like the son of a bitch!' "On Dec. 16, Back Stage presented another "Evening With…." Actor Adam Scott and writer-director Lee Toland Krieger spoke following a screening of their film "The Vicious Kind. »

Morning Brew: Tuesday, Dec. 22

22 December 2009 7:00 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

We've got a great brew today, folks.

Let's start with this, Skins fans:

You want it poster-sized, don't you? The issue, featuring an interview with Naomily actresses Kathryn Prescott and Lily Loveless is out now.

How did I not know about this? Apparently there is a "quick lesbian scene" between Keira Knightley and Hayley Atwell in their film, The Duchess. The movie is now available on DVD, and could be a great last minute gift for a friend who likes British women bedding one another.

Sundance is going to be so gay this year. The Runaways is officially in good company with the addition of The Kids Are Alright from High Art director Lisa Cholodenko, starring Julianne Moore and Annette Benning as lovers. It's being described as a "drama with a sexy script." Please let that sexiness be between the aforementioned actresses. Don't let me down, Lisa!

New Images from Your Highness, The Adjustment Bureau, Repo Men, and Get Him To The Greek

21 December 2009 1:52 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with their great news about the release date for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Playlist also landed some new (albeit tiny) images for David Gordon Green’s Your Highness starring Danny McBride, James Franco, and Natalie Portman; George Nolfi’s The Adjustment Bureau starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt; Repo Men starring Liev Schreiber, Jude Law, and Forest Whitaker; and Nicholas Stoller’s Get Him to the Greek starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill.  You can also see tiny images for some other films but those are the biggies because they’re on the top row and there’s no way you can argue with how those images were placed.  My logic is bulletproof.

The Playlist also has a couple of slightly larger images from The Adjustment Bureau and Greek and you can check them both out after the jump.

10 Movie Events That Shaped the Decade (For Movie Fans)

21 December 2009 10:29 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

We’ve come to the end of 2009, so we thought we’d weigh in with a look back at the first 10 years of the 21st century in the movie world and discuss the various different “events” which shaped the decade. Obviously we can’t cover absolutely everything, but sticking true to our core movie genres on the site, we’re just going to concentrate on the comic-book, sci-fi, action (and so forth) types of movies and take a look at what films had the maximum impact over this decade.

It’s amazing to think that it’s been 10 years since movies like The Matrix, American Beauty and Fight Club (to name but a few) came out in 1999 (check out our 1999 decade highlight, if you haven’t already). A Lot of movies – somewhere in the vicinity of 5,000-6,000 – have been released since then. We’ve had the good, the bad and »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

19 December 2009 11:50 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds. Like all topics of the sort, it'll also have its strong supporters and detractors having opinions on the film long before a frame of footage is screened anywhere.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three »

'The Hangover' Arrives On Home Video To Golden Globe Noms And An Increasingly Busy Cast

15 December 2009 12:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Before "The Hangover" became one of the biggest success stories of 2009, it was just a Warner Bros. comedy starring that guy who cheats from "He's Just Not That Into You," the dude from "The Office," and some short, fat guy with a beard.

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis weren't putting all their eggs in one basket, because I'm fairly certain none of them expected "The Hangover" to gross over $459 million in the worldwide box office. In fact, the stars of "The Hangover" have been some of the busiest guys around Hollywood over the past year. Here's a look at what else they've been up to since "The Hangover" hit theaters in June -- beyond, of course, preparing for 2011's "The Hangover 2."

Bradley Cooper

Though Bradley Cooper surprised audiences and critics with his comedic chops in "The Hangover," he chose not to return to the bro-comedy formula. Cooper's »

Jack Black & Illumination Entertainment Invest in Cryptozoology

12 December 2009 8:37 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Animation films, whether it’s the new school CGI or old school hand drawn, have always been popular with kids of all ages and in recent years, have become fun for adults to watch as well; so, it’s no surprise to read a story over at Variety announcing a new CGI feature film involving Jack Black.  Writer Jason Micallef pitched an idea to Illumination Entertainment which is an extension of Universal headed by Chris Meledandri.

Micallef’s pitch in set in the world of Cryptozoology, which is the study and search for unknown, yet often talked about, animals or beings. My guess is it will include “monsters” like the Yeti, Sasquatch, Bigfoot, The Loch Ness Monster and maybe even mermaids or dragons. Black, who at one time was thought to be voicing a character, will now only be producing with business partner Ben Cooley via their production company Electric Dynamite. »

The people who ruined the decade

Part 5: From Sir Tim Berners-Lee to Phil Mitchell

Sir Tim Berners-lee Invented the internet. Omg!

Nice one, Sir T. You came up with a useful, unifying means of global communication that changed the way we went about everything, from news to wanking. Then celebrity bloggers appeared to combine the two: Drunken Stepfather, The Superficial, Dlisted and the grotesque grande dame of them all, Perez "Zzzz!" Hilton, made stars out of socialites, turned the upskirt shot into a goldmine and made being a no-limits prick about everyone acceptable by calling it "snark". You enjoy that knighthood.

DVD Review: ‘Paper Heart’ Intriguingly Blurs Line Between Reality, Fiction

11 December 2009 12:02 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Some actors are so good that it’s easy to take their work for granted. Take Michael Cera, the veteran child actor-turned-unlikely teen heartthrob. From his breakout work in “Arrested Development,” to his crowd-pleasing performances in “Superbad” and “Juno,” Cera has created a comic persona as indelible as Woody Allen’s.

The sweetly neurotic vulnerability he exudes is so authentic, it’s easy for audiences to confuse the actor with the characters he regularly portrays. Is he a brilliant actor, or is he simply playing himself (which itself is no easy feat)? Such questions lie at the deceptive heart of Nicholas Jasenovec’s intriguing and infuriating romantic comedy.

DVD Rating: 3.0/5.0

Paper Heart” purports itself to be documentary about one young woman’s quest to discover the nature of love. The woman is Charlyne Yi, a comedian and performance artist not unlike Cera (she’s best known for her scene-stealing »

Does the World Need an Entourage Movie?

11 December 2009 2:30 AM, PST | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

As one of HBO’s flagship series, Entourage has a complex reputation. It hit a self-reflexive high in its second season (the Aquaman years), but since then it’s been an on-and-off source of grumbling and eye rolls among fans. It can seem like an eternity before anything actually happens, and the series is often curiously out of touch. The most recent season, for example, began with an episode where the characters talk about nothing but Knocked Up, a movie that was a hot cultural item…two summers ago. »
