Worst 20 Films of 2011 – Season of the Witch, Red Riding Hood & More!

31 December 2011 5:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Having spent the last year sat in screening rooms and cinemas watching over 200 of 2011′s cinematic offerings, it stands to reason that I’m going to have to sit through a fair share of duds. As I had seen the vast majority of the key Oscar plays before November, I spent the latter part of the year dedicating myself to seeking out the worst, most lowest common denominator fare ripe for a skewering, and with these twenty dreadful pictures, we have what are, in my opinion, the 20 biggest train wrecks of 2011. Note that Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star is still awaiting worldwide DVD release and didn’t get distribution in the U.K., so that’s one that I was forced to avoid, but I’m assured that it’s irredeemably horrible nevertheless. Anyway, on with the list…

Top Ten Worst Movies of 2011 - Part Two: The List

30 December 2011 8:08 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

 

Let's pile on one last time and let that be the end of it as I now present my personal top ten list of the Worst Movies of 2011. As I noted in Part One yesterday, I didn't see all of the films many are calling the worst of the year, films such as Jack and Jill, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, I Don't Know How She Does It, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Beastly and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star. I did, however, see my fair share of duds and of those I saw, these are the ten that top that list. If you missed Part One, that's where I essentially list my Dishonorable Mentions and I will link to it again at the end of this piece. For now, let's dive into the sewer and see what we find amidst the sludge. 10. Hobo with a Shotgun »

Film Feature: The 10 Worst Films of 2011

29 December 2011 4:16 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – With 2012 staring us in the face like a bad movie concept (oops), it’s time to go over the worst films of 2011, if only to purge the refuse from our souls. If you think film critiquing is martinis with F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald – or the plot to “Midnight in Paris” – then strap in and read on.

If we were to add up the percentages of the 2011 film release year, the larger number of star ratings would fall in the middle to horrible category of the please-please-me range, but that is the nature of populist movie-making. The film business is about demographics and butts-in-the-seats, and what’s on screen – as long as it has a vampire in it – has become irrelevant. Can we all handle that truth? Thank goodness for awards season.

But I digress. Just missing the 10th spot was “Country Strong,” “Arthur,” “Hop,” “Your Highness,” “Take Me Home Tonight” and “The Smurfs. »

The 25 Best Movies of 2011

22 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

It was the year Harry Potter ended, the Muppets returned, Ryan Gosling drove, Apes rose, Matt Damon bought a zoo, and a bunch of raunchy Bridesmaids made us pee our pants (or wedding dresses) laughing.

Yeah, we're pretty happy with you, 2011 movies.

As for counting down the best of the best, we're happy/relieved to report that coming to an in-house consensus was pretty easy, and entirely non-violent. And our number one pick? Even easier to decide.

Tell us your favorite movies in the comments section, and for a taste of sour, check out our picks for the 5 Worst Movies of 2011.

25. 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol'

So many movies this year promised edge-of-your-seat action and nonstop popcorn scarfing, but few delivered like the fourth installment in this would-be aging franchise. Tom Cruise is at his best, reminding us that his charisma and ability to sell a crazy fight »

The 2011 Portfolio Video: Drive, Dragon Tattoo, Warrior, Shame

6 December 2011 3:03 PM, PST | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

The 2011 Portfolio Video. Alex “hatinhand“‘s The 2011 Portfolio video showcases Drive, Warrior, Shame and other movies from 2011 in a tribute video featuring clips and music from them. Most of these films I have not even seen yet (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and some I will never see (Footloose).

The video is broken up into six chapters (there are two chapter 2s), each one has its own music track.

From Hatinhand about The 2011 Portfolio:

The 2011 slate of releases, from The Adjustment Bureau to Zookeeper.

This is where a cathartic and overarching statement would succinctly sum up the year’s displays of creativity, passion, ingenuity, and bravado, but the only thing that comes to mind is: weird shit. Lots of weird shit.

War horses and evil clowns. Hobos with shotguns and super-powered Nazi hunters. Cancer comedies and a silent warrior in a scorpion jacket. Iconoclasts, conspirators, madmen, and crusaders. And a badass David Tennant. »

Close up: Ken Russell 1927-2011

1 December 2011 10:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The acclaimed, eccentric director of Women in Love and The Devils died this week, prompting tributes from the press and former colleagues

The big story

Ken Russell died this week, leaving behind a body of work that shocked and surprised, teased and titillated. He was, said Xan Brooks in our early news story a man of "wild drama, gaudy conflagrations and operatic flourishes", a "juggler of high and low culture who invariably courted controversy".

Russell's career path - from his documentary work for the 1960s BBC series Monitor, to the short films he made at home in later years - was hard to map. His most infamous and innovative works - The Devils, Altered States - flashed by in the wake of semi-hits Women in Love (which won him an Oscar in 1971) and Tommy. He was, said friends an "iconoclast" (Venessa Redgrave). "Fearless, eccentric and silly" (Melvyn Bragg). "Capable of »

Ginnifer Goodwin Brings Snow White to Life in 'Once Upon a Time'

24 October 2011 6:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

This story first appeared in the Sept. 1 issue of "Back Stage."Ginnifer Goodwin has made a career of playing likable ladies—women the audience is willing to follow on a journey even when their actions are questionable. Whether her character makes painful mistakes in relationships ("He's Just Not That Into You"), is married to a man with two other wives ("Big Love"), or even falls for her best friend's fiancé ("Something Borrowed"), Goodwin brings a decency and humanity to her roles that sets her apart from her peers. Goodwin is now playing the ultimate good girl—none other than Snow White, the fairy-tale heroine of the legendary beauty and kindness who sings to birds and is awakened by Prince Charming's kiss. She is one facet of ABC's ambitious new drama "Once Upon a Time," which premiered on Sunday. The show is set in a modern world where fairy-tale characters such as Rumpelstiltskin. »

Matt Damon to Direct Legal Drama Co-Written by John Krasinski

20 October 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Like so many actors before him -- including Bff Ben Affleck -- Matt Damon's been harboring aspirations of becoming a director. He announced [2] over the summer that he was getting ready to helm his first film, with The Office's John Krasinski set to star. At the time, we figured that the project in question was probably the road trip story Father Daughter Time [3]. However, it's now been revealed that it'll actually be an untitled legal drama that Damon co-wrote with Krasinski. Affleck and Damon will produce the picture, which is set up at Warner Bros. More details after the jump. The Hollywood Reporter [4] writes that Damon is planning a spring start for the untitled project, which will be an Erin Brokovich-esque drama that centers around a town being poisoned. According to Variety Showblitz [5], Krasinski developed the story with author Dave Eggers. It's not clear what role Krasinski will play, »

John Krasinski to Star in Matt Damon's Directing Debut

20 October 2011 7:19 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Matt Damon (True Grit) and John Krasinski (Something Borrowed) are teaming up on an untitled movie for Warner Brothers: the duo co-wrote the script and will star in the film, Krasinski will produce through his Sunday Films production company and Damon will make his directing debut. The $12 million film comes from an idea Krasinski developed with author Dave Eggers (they worked together on Away We Go) and will have Damon playing a traveling salesman who arrives in a small town and finds his whole life put into question. While this will be Damon's first time helming a feature film, it's not his first foray as a writer: he won an Oscar with Ben Affleck for writing Good Will Hunting in 1997.

Sony Sells 2 More Comedies, Including Remake Of French-Canadian Format

3 October 2011 5:02 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Sony Pictures TV has sold 3 more comedy projects to the broadcast networks: an U.S. version of the French-Canadian format Les Invincibles to Fox with Family Guy executive producer Chris Sheridan writing and Luke Greenfield (Something Borrowed) directing and an untitled half-hour to ABC with Peter Tolan executive producing. Sony TV’s tally now stands at 49 comedy sales this season. Additionally, the studio has sold a drama from comedy veterans Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah to NBC. The Invincibles revolves around three guys and one girl, all in their 20s, who make a pact to simultaneously dump their girlfriend or boyfriend (or quit their job if unattached) and reclaim their lives. CAA-repped Greenfield was the driver behind the project and brought in Sheridan as a writer. The two are executive producing with 3 Arts’ Tom Lassally and Jonathan Berry.

Box Office Challenge

What movie will be No. 1 at the box office?

Hitting the screens this weekend …

50/50

Courageous

Dream House

What’s Your Number?

Tsr’s complete Film Review Database

Another off weekend for Hollywood, Imo. The Lion King will likely continue to do well, but we’ve got four new-comers that think they’re up to the challenge.

First up is 50/50, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen. This film looks like it just might hit on all comedy/drama cylinders — to be both a quality drama, and a hilarious comedy is quite a feat, and that’s what 50/50 is shooting for. I feel that most filmmakers whom attempt such, fail. Gordon-Levitt is pretty darn solid though, and he should provide the film with enough dramatic punch so as to exist as an acceptable teeter-totter comedy/drama. Seth Rogen has overstayed his welcome. Am I the only one tired of »

Reel Sex: Secrets and Lies in ‘Something Borrowed’

21 September 2011 3:24 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Anyone who has ever had to keep a secret knows staying mum is more chore than awesome. It’s one of those things that, as I’ve aged, I’ve grown to hate more than anything. I understand and respect the importance of secrets. I just don’t understand the drama behind them. Or, for that matter, the sheer thrill when one finally unravels. I’ve learned from both personal and filmic examples just how when you keep something scandalous inside you for so long, eventually it will eat you from the inside out. Nothing has driven my absolute disgust for secret relationships more than this year’s Something Borrowed,a film that causes both our own Kate Erbland and myself to want to punch babies. In the face. While there is more than one reason to hate the vile, troubling nature of a film pitting two supposedly best friends against each other, what »

Box Office Challenge: ‘Drive,’ ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ and ‘Straw Dogs’

Box Office Challenge

What movie will be No. 1 at the box office?

Hitting the screens this weekend …

Drive

I Don’t Know How She Does It

Straw Dogs

Tsr’s complete Film Review Database

This weekend sees three new wide releases at the box office, none of them particularly Pavlovian in the hype department…

I’m personally the most excited about Straw Dogs, due in great part to my adoration of Kate Bosworth, but I doubt it will sell too many tickets. I was shocked by the absence of Bosworth from the film’s primary movie poster — that’s an epic fail. Yes, this is a remake, but James Marsden is no Dustin Hoffman, and though it might be considered an homage, what they’ve mimicked from the original movie poster, ugh, I just don’t see what they were thinking. This poster might be the least marketable piece of »
