2011 in Movies: The Year of Looking Backward

31 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Looking back on 2011, we should have seen it coming. The growing re-obsession with ’80s brands in entertainment. Facebook reconnecting old friends and classmates. YouTube rising to prominence and providing the means to relive memorable moments. Digital music making it virtually effortless to rediscover classic tunes. Nostalgia just became a major part of our lives, at a time when perhaps the present wasn’t the easiest. Naturally, pop culture has corrected itself to capitalize, which is maybe why most movies this year felt so recycled.

The summer season looked like someone had a yard sale for comic books and the best ones were kept tucked away. Thor. Captain America. Green Lantern. Wait, X-Men! Only it’s a new, “first” class set in the ’60s, sans favorites like Wolverine. Earlier, The Green Hornet?

Meanwhile, Real Steel made things used and rusted feel… used and shiny. We all learned a valuable lesson from The Help’s age-old wisdom, »

Phil’s Top Ten Films of 2011

30 December 2011 2:11 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

2011 has, despite claims to the contrary, been – for me at least – a pretty decent year for movies. Between comic book flicks, sci-fi, teen comedies and some of the best big-screen horror, I’ve actually seen more films in the cinema this year than any before it… And shockingly not everything was in 3D!

Surprisingly choosing my final top ten wasn’t as difficult as I originally imagined, although I have a feeling that not everyone will agree with anything on this list:

Deadheads

A low-budget, straight to DVD zombie movie as my number one..? Hell Yes! Screened at August’s London Film4 Frightfest, Deadheads turned out to be a surprising mix of John Hughes teen comedy and traditional zombie film. And with shades of Night of the Creeps it was pretty much guaranteed to be on my top ten list come the end of the year. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

Yet another horror comedy, »

Fast Five tops illegal download charts

30 December 2011 6:34 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Car-racing sequel starring Vin Diesel comes out ahead of The Hangover Part II and Thor in list of 2011's most pirated films

Sportscar action thriller Fast Five, stag do sequel The Hangover Part II and comic book movie Thor were among the most pirated films of 2011, according to filesharing blog Torrent Freak.

Fast Five, the well-reviewed latest instalment in the Fast and the Furious series, topped the list with 9.2m downloads, while in second place The Hangover II was pirated 8.8m times. Thor, Kenneth Branagh's take on the Marvel comics character, received 8.3m downloads and the top five was rounded out by Duncan Jones's techno-thriller Source Code (7.9m downloads) and teen-orientated sci-fi flick I Am Number Four with 7.6m downloads.

The results, when cross-referenced with this year's global box-office top 10, seem to confirm that 3D films tend to be those filmgoers prefer to see at the cinema rather than downloading illegally. »

Week in geek's best films of 2011

30 December 2011 5:25 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Drive, Source Code and Thor were among the highlights of a year notable for the increasing quality of fanboy-friendly films

Quite a few critics' best-of lists have implied 2011 was a pretty average year for popcorn movies. Throw in the fact that 2012 is set to deliver The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus and the first part of The Hobbit, and it doesn't augur well for an annual round-up of the past 12 months' top fanboy-friendly films. But while there has been nothing this year to compare with the head-spinning brio of 2010's Inception or the epic, flawed genius of 2009's Watchmen, the overall quality of fantasy, sci-fi and comic book fare has definitely been on the way up.

That's not to say we haven't had our fair share of distinctly non-festive turkeys. Green Lantern was an almighty mess dogged by a ropey script, dodgy CGI, and wooden chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and just about everyone else on screen. »

End of Year Recap: A Look Back at the Year in Film Plus 'The Avengers' in Russian

29 December 2011 2:16 PM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Normally (and by normally, we mean during past five months), we'd use this post to recap all the major stories, trailers, posters and what not that hit the web over the course of the week. Since the studios have essentially taken the week off, it gives us an opportunity to recap the entire year of 2011. Scroll on down to the year that was… The Top Five Most Pirated Movies as downloaded via BitTorrent: Fast Five (9.3 million downloads), The Hangover – Part II (8.8 million), Thor (8.3 million), Source Code (7.9 million), I Am Number Four (7.7 million). Calculating with the national average movie ticket price of $8 (I know city folk, what a bargain), that comes to $336 million.     The Top Five Highest Grossing Movies of 2011: Harry Potter and the Deathly...

MTV Movies' Honorable Mentions Of 2011

29 December 2011 12:02 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

When compiling your list of the ten best films of the year, inevitably a great film or two just won't fit on your final roster. That's where the honorable mention comes in handy. Perhaps the film was a little dumb, a little odd or something was just off, but for whatever reason it didn't make the cut, you love it nonetheless.

We asked the MTV Movies staff to share their honorable mention for the film year that was 2011.

"Source Code"

Duncan Jones' second feature delivered nearly everything I could ask for in a popcorn sci-fi flick: time travel, parallel universes and nifty plot twists that leave you asking friends afterwards, "Wait, what did it mean when...?" Fans of Jake Gyllenhaal's cult fav "Donnie Darko"—which really truly is an awful movie—would be well served to throw some love toward Jg's "Code," because it spins a vastly superior sci-fi yarn. »

Fast Five, Harry Potter and Thor Among Most Pirated Movies of 2011

29 December 2011 10:08 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sure, grabbing a little piece of cinema illegally on your computer might be fast, but it certainly makes studios furious. Which brings us to the flick that leads the list of the most pirated movies of the year. Fast Five was downloaded 9.2 million times, according to TorrentFreak.com, which tracks this sort of thing. So what other films did folks want to see without ponying up at the box office? Coming in second was The Hangover Part II with 8.8 million downloads, followed by Thor with 8.3 million. Rounding out the top 10? Source Code (7.9 million), I Am Number Four (7.6 million), Sucker Punch (7.2 million), 127 Hours (6.9 million), Rango (6.4 million), The King's Speech »

Fast Five Is Most Pirated Film Of 2011

29 December 2011 9:06 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As 2011 comes to an end it’s time to review the most successful films of the year or in this case the most pirated. The trophy goes to Fast Five closely followed by The Hangover Part II and Thor.

Although all three of these films did well at the box office, the same can’t be said for others in the top ten. Jake Gyllenhaal’s Source Code, Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch and James Franco’s 127 Hours surprisingly topped the chart whilst Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2, the biggest hit of the year, barely made the list.

Another surprise was that film downloads dropped by nearly double from last year, when Avatar was downloaded 16.6 million times. Check out the chart below.

1) Fast Five- 9.3 million

2) The Hangover Part II- 8.8 million

3) Thor- 8.3 million

4) Source Code- 7.9 million

5) I Am Number 4- 7.7 million

6) Sucker Punch- 7.2 million

7) 127 Hours- »

29 December 2011 4:33 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

As 2011 draws to a close sites across the web crack out their Top 10′s of the year, and one of the most interesting each and every year is the one put together by TorrentFreak – the Top 10 Most Pirated Films of 2011. And it makes for interesting reading as there are a few notable omissions from the list and some (including the liks of Rango and 127 Hours) that I would never have pegged as a films that would be heavily downloaded.

The data for this list is collected by TorrentFreak from several sources, including reports from thousands of BitTorrent trackers. All release formats, including cammed versions are counted. Afterwards, the data is carefully checked and corrected if needed.

The Most Pirated Films Of 2011

29 December 2011 4:30 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The end of year is always a time for list articles on film sites. Some offer practical and interesting analysis like 'best film' lists. Most however are quickly pulled together inane padding designed to keep the 'torch lights burning' as there's really no news to report over the next fortnight.

So here's another for that pile, a list that Hollywood wishes didn't exist - the most pirated movies of the year list. TorrentFreak has released its top ten most downloaded movies worldwide of 2011 with "Fast Five" winning the pack.

Approximately 9.26 million copies of the film were downloaded over the year. Not far behind in second and third were "The Hangover Part II" and "Thor" with 8.84 million and 8.33 million respectively. All kicked off the Summer film season and so all have been around longer which explains their higher download count. Here's the full list:

Fast Five is Most Pirated Film of 2011

28 December 2011 2:30 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Now that the year is coming to an end, we get a list of the most pirated movies of 2011. Topping the list is "Fast Five," followed by "The Hangover Part II" and "Thor." All three films were blockbusters, but others on the Top 10 list did little business at the box office, including Jake Gyllenhaal "Source Code," Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" and James Franco's "127 Hours." The biggest hit of the year, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," barely made the list, but was still downloaded around 6 million times. Meanwhile, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," which were the second and third highest-grossing films, didn't make the list at all. The amount of downloads actually dropped from last year, when "Avatar" was downloaded a whopping 16.6 million times. This year's "Fast Five" was downloaded only 9.3 million times. 1.

Clothes on Film’s 2011 Costume Design Round Up

27 December 2011 4:27 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

By no means intended as an exhaustive list, Clothes on Film ponder an overview of 2011 in costume. Concentrating on mainstream fare that those outside of big cities are likely to have seen, we consider which costumes delighted, surprised and best of all, enlightened us. Expect to spot Drive, Melancholia and Hugo on this list somewhere.

Costume encompasses every item of clothing worn on film. By strict definition costume is not ‘wardrobe’; wardrobe is what Oprah Winfrey wore on her talk show. While at Clothes on Film we embrace all forms of costume, we do have a slight bias for contemporary, although only because it is often underrepresented in the face of (admittedly dazzling) period or fantasy wear. This roundup will comprise both period and contemporary, but »

Film Feature: Top 10 Films of 2011

27 December 2011 2:16 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – As the days count down to the end of the year, it’s a perfect time for a countdown of the top ten films of 2011. Last week, Brian Tallerico of HollywoodChicago.com posted his 10 Best of 2011, and this week I pick my Top Ten Films of 2011, by Patrick McDonald.

If there was a single overriding theme to films in 2011, it was the end of the world. There were symbolic, financial, moral, anarchistic and literal end of the worlds, which comes on the heels of the meltdown of the end of last decade. It wasn’t a science fiction style end, but a commentary on a pervasive mood in general society, and the reflection of that mood in so many films throughout 2011 is quite remarkable, and unmistakable.

In my Top Ten of 2011, several of those end-of-the-world films are there, but also there is hopeful turns with baseball, Woody Allen and brilliant smaller budget filmmaking. »
