Best Films Of 2011 (Jeff’s List)

Best Films Of 2011 (Jeff’s List)

2011 is the weakest year of film in recent memory. That’s not to say there weren’t some pretty good films out there, but it is the first year in which I can recall not having seen a movie that has earned a four-star rating. Whereas some critics give them out like candy, it takes a little more for me to award such a rating. I have to be absolutely blown away by a film for such a rating to be given. For example, last year I saw three four-star films: Inception, The King’s Speech, and Rabbit Hole, each of them a superb achievement in cinema.

Thanks for reading We Got This Covered »

Seasonal poster shows tattooed Santa in modern fairy tale Rise of the Guardians

24 December 2011 9:52 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

It's not out for another year but Rise of the Guardians is getting into the festive spirit with a new teaser poster.

The DreamWorks Animation film is a 3D comedy adventure based on William Joyce's forthcoming The Guardians of Childhood books and is described as a contemporary fairy tale.

Joyce serves as co-director (with Peter Ramsey), story creator, producer and executive producer on the upcoming film, which features Nicholas St North (aka Santa Claus, voiced by Alec Baldwin), Tooth (aka the Tooth Fairy, voiced by Isla Fisher), Bunnymund (aka the Easter Bunny, voiced by Hugh Jackman) and Jack Frost (voiced by Chris Pine). They join forces with the Sandman (whose casting hasn't been announced), to stop Pitch the Nightmare King (aka The Boogeyman, voiced by Jude Law) sending the world into eternal darkness.

Also in the cast is Dakota Goyo as a boy called Jamie. The 12-year-old Canadian actor »

DVD Release: Retreat

23 December 2011 8:06 AM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: Feb. 21, 2012

Price: DVD $30.99

Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

The description for thriller movie Retreat reads like Dead Calm on land.

In 1989′s Dead Calm, husband and wife Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole) and Sam Neill (Daybreakers) were enjoying some alone time on their yacht when injured Billy Zane (Sniper Reloaded) washed up, saying he’s from another ship that wrecked. Tension builds as the couple tries to figure out the truth and save themselves.

In 2011′s Retreat, husband and wife Thandie Newton (For Colored Girls) and Cillian Murphy (In Time) are enjoying some alone time on an island retreat — trying to save their marriage after it was torn apart by the stress of the stillbirth of their first child — when injured Jamie Bell (Jane Eyre) washes up, saying he’s the lone survivor of an airborne killer disease that’s sweeping across Europe. Tensions build as the couple »

First Poster for 'Rise of the Guardians'

19 December 2011 8:13 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

DreamWorks Animation has debuted the first poster for Rise of the Guardians, an adaptation of the recently released books by William Joyce. The film will be directed by Peter Ramsey (Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space) and co-directed by Joyce and has already been set for a November 21, 2012 release with voices provided by Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law. David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) penned the screenplay and I'm sure one of the film's draws will be the fact Guillermo del Toro is serving as one of the executive producers. The story follows a group of heroes -- Alec Baldwin as North (Santa Claus), Hugh Jackman as Bunnymund (Easter Bunny) and Isla Fisher as Tooth (Tooth Fairy) -- each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch (Jude Law) lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must »

Box office report: 'Carnage' weak opening; 'The Artist,' 'The Descendants' stay strong

18 December 2011 11:37 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The weekend before Christmas is traditionally dedicated more to parties, travel and shopping than moviegoing. However, it is significant as awards-oriented films fight for audience attention both to spark word-of-mouth (Wom) at Christmas dinners and add screens in the gross-rich days starting next Sunday. Distributors have to hope that the generally disappointing results this weekend aren't a sign of things to come with the particularly adult-oriented set of wide releases beginning with "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" on Tuesday. Opening "Carnage" (Sony Pictures Classics) $85,000 in 5 theaters; PSA (Per screen average): $17,000 This is a weak opening, about 50% ahead of "Rabbit Hole" last year (PSA $11,000 in five, leading to a gross of only slightly over $2 million despite an Oscar bid for Nicole Kidman.) "The Ghost Writer", Roman Polanski’s last film, opening in February 2010, had a PSA of $46,000 in four thea »

Watch: Marion Cotillard Thinks About Quitting The Business In Lady Dior Short Film Directed By John Cameron Mitchell

13 December 2011 3:34 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Generally speaking, fashion ads, no matter how high class, glossy and star studded they are, tend to be a bore. And while folks Jean Jacques-Annaud (starring Charlize Theron), Darren Aronofsky, Martin Scorsese and Sofia Coppola have all done work for fashion houses in the past little while, we can't say we remember them all that well. Leave it to "Shortbus" and "Rabbit Hole" helmer John Cameron Mitchell to create something actually worth watching. The lovely Marion Cotillard is the current face of Lady Dior, a job which in addition to being a nice little bonus in the bank account, has allowed her to work previously with David Lynch, and with all due to respect to him, we think Mitchell has him beat. In "L.A.dy Dior The Film" (yes, the spelling is intentional), we find both the director and Cotillard sending up the outrageousness of fashion shoots to begin with. »

Science fiction is creeping into more mainstream films

8 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Science fiction isn't all 'talking squids in space'. And its creep into mainstream cinema is everywhere from Never Let Me Go to Midnight in Paris

Holy looming planets, Batman! It has already been observed that Mike Cahill's Another Earth and Lars Von Trier's Melancholia share the evocative image of another heavenly body in close proximity to Earth. For me, though, the most significant thing about this coincidence is that neither film would normally be classified as science fiction. And it's not as if either director is distancing himself from the term, the way Margaret Atwood seems to be. She's made increasingly baroque contortions to explain that what she writes is "speculative fiction" and not Sf. (Though surely the term "speculative fiction" is tautological. Isn't all fiction speculative?)

There has long been a tendency for Sf themes to bleed into the mainstream and non-sf genres. What is It's a Wonderful Life »

Comedy Central Developing Jamie Denbo/Kerri Kenney-Silver Hybrid Comedy

6 December 2011 12:38 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Comedy Central has picked up for development Rabbit Hole, a half-hour scripted/improv hybrid comedy created/executive produced by Upright Citizens Brigade veteran Jamie Denbo and Reno 911! alumna Kerri Kenney-Silver. Kenney-Silver is set to star in the mockumentary-style comedy, a behind-the-scenes look at the residents and customers at a low-rent legal brothel in Winnemucca, Nevada called Dame Delilah’s Rabbit Hole Ranch. Kenney-Silver will play Dame Delilah, the madam of the house. This is Denbo’s second sale this season; she also is writing comedy I Lick My Cheese for CBS, CBS Studios and Ash Atalla’s Roughcut. CAA-repped Denbo is probably best known as half of the Ronna and Beverly comedy team. This marks Gersh-repped Kenney-Silver’s return to Comedy Central where she played Deputy Trudy Wiegel on Reno 911!. She is with Principato-Young. »

‘Take Shelter’ & ‘The Artist’ Lead 2012 Spirit Award Nominees

29 November 2011 8:59 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s that time of year when bows of holly are hung, children scribble wish lists for Santa, and films worldwide jockey for notice as award season kicks off! Just a day after the Gotham Awards announced their winners, the 27th Film Independent’s Spirit Awards has announced their nominees.

The Spirit Awards has long aimed to pay tribute to the little films that often unfairly fail to grab Oscar notice. (It’s no coincidence that the Spirit Awards telecast is traditionally held the day before the Oscars ceremony each year.) Of course, with the Academy’s expansion to 10 Best Picture nominees, the past few years have shown an increase in the amount of crossover between the two award shows. Last year both the Academy Awards and the Spirit Awards bestowed nominations (if not awards) to Black Swan, Winter’s Bone, 127 Hours, The King’s Speech, The Kids Are All Right, »

Lionsgate has been sued by a consulting firm that alleges it is owed money for services provided to help its slate of films garner Academy Award nominations. The work is said to have resulted in an Oscar nod for Nicole Kidman in the best actress category for Rabbit Hole, and the firm says it is entitled to $61,500 plus interest. Photos: 2011 Oscars Red Carpet The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month by CBB Consulting, which says it was contracted in August 2010 to provide logistical services in advance of awards season.

Can too much success be a bad thing? In the case of the critical acclaim received by the 2010 film "Rabbit Hole," perhaps so. Lionsgate Films was slapped with a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court Monday by a consulting firm that claims it wasn't compensated for helping to secure "Rabbit Hole" star Nicole Kidman an Oscar nomination.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Trespass' Held Hostage By Shrill Drama, Shallow Clichés

9 November 2011 5:13 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Few Oscar-winning actors have made as many bad movies as Nicolas Cage. His cinematic bombs have become so numerous that one could easily mistake him for a bad actor. Yet that is hardly the case. In fact, his vast number of outrageous gambles outweighs his list of easy paychecks. He’s a performer clearly unafraid of falling flat on his face.

Consider Cage’s work in 1988’s cult favorite “Vampire’s Kiss” or Werner Herzog’s marvelously loony 2009 effort, “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.” In both pictures, Cage’s performance is so bizarre, so risky, so go-for-broke loony that it takes on a sort of grandeur, thus transcending the routine subject matter. When Cage glides on autopilot through a routine blockbuster, he’s a bore. But when he’s given the opportunity to explore a character’s warped psyche, there’s no one more entertaining on the planet. »

Nicole Kidman Joins Biopic 'Our Wild Life'

2 November 2011 1:45 PM, PDT | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

Despite having lost the ability to express emotion via the muscles of her face sometime around 2002, Nicole Kidman remains a relevant actress cast in (mostly) age-appropriate films like Rabbit Hole, for which she was nominated for an Oscar. Now she's eyeing the lead in an upcoming biopic called Our Wild Life, depicting the life and work of nature conservist Dame Daphne Sheldrick as she tended elephants in Kenya.

Kidman finally 'fesses up to Botox

Oscars syle evolution: Nicole Kidman

Franco and Kidman will star on Broadway

Who looks at the icy Kidman and thinks "There's a lady with a soft spot for animals?" Truly a testament to her acting skills. Anyway, the pic is said to have elements of classic Hollywood wildlife films like Born Free and Out Of Africa but with a feminist bent. As far as we can tell it's more in the vein of Gorillas In the Mist, »

21 And Over Movie Bosses Criticised Over Filming Location

31 October 2011 1:01 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie bosses behind upcoming film 21 And Over have come under fire from human rights activists for shooting the picture in a controversial Chinese city.

Famous blind peace activist Chen Guangcheng is reportedly being held under house arrest in Linyi, China despite desperate attempts from supporters to rescue him.

Executives at Relativity Media have since set up camp in Linyi to film the comedy starring Twilight's Justin Chon and Rabbit Hole's Miles Teller, and in a recently-issued company press release, they described the city as an "amazing" place.

The news sparked an outcry from campaigners, who have criticised movie bosses for turning a blind eye to Guangcheng's plight.

Activist He Peirong tells the Associated Press, "I hope Relativity Media will learn more about the real Linyi... Especially at this time, when every day there are people trying to visit Chen Guangcheng, people who have been robbed and beaten, I express deep regret to see such remarks whitewashing the city of Linyi."

Some campaigners have vowed to protest the movie's release and now Human Rights Watch's senior Asia researcher Nicholas Bequelin insists the studio may be in the wrong.

He says, "They seem to be eager to assume this role of being a prop in Linyi's propaganda campaign to cast itself as a civilised municipality that promotes culture when the reality is that it is not only holding one of China's most prominent human rights defenders, but going to extraordinary lengths to persecute him." »
