The Top 10 Movies Of 2010: Josh's Take

31 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Are you top ten-ed out? Probably? But damn it, I didn't see a zillion movies this year (Ok, around 150) to not earn the right to subject you to a list of my 10 favorites. Honestly this list is probably more for me than for you guys. As we head into the awards season (People's Choice is just days away, get your powder blue tux ready!), what better way to get into the right mindset of endless accolades than to bestow my own. So here we go folks... the top 10 films of 2010* according to me.

*List void on January 1st when I'll surely change my mind about a few of these.

Top 10 (In Alphabetical Order)...

"127 Hours"

At face value a gimmick of a film, but so much more in the hands of Danny Boyle. By turns contemplative, visceral, epic and intimate, "127 Hours" added up to one of the more moving pieces of cinema this year (and, »

5 Movies of 2010 That Should Have Been Awesome

31 December 2010 1:02 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

On the whole, I think the year of 2010 was fairly positive for film.  We saw plenty of great movies that made us visit the entire spectrum of emotions, and tell a powerful story (Black Swan, Inception, Scott Pilgrim, etc.) but unfortunately there were quite a few stinkers this year.  The saddest part about some of those movies, however, is that they were supposed to be great!  Some of the most hyped movies, failed.  While not all of them were terrible they failed to deliver on the expected level of excellence.

So instead of a standard best/worst of 2010 list, I've decided to compile a list of the movies this year that should have been awesome...but weren't.

Iron Man 2

This is one of the movies that falls into the the 'wasn't terrible' category.  Honestly, I really quite liked this movie (even though plenty of fans didn't), and I put »

Thursty's Stinky Box Office: Death of a Decade Edition

31 December 2010 12:54 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

I mentioned being disappointed in this year's box office in last week's column.  It's not like I expected the weekend to surprise me by being a big weekend, or anything, but I figured it would at least be a decent weekend. It wasn't.  I set all my predictions pretty low -- lower than most folks' predictions, it would turn out -- and seven of the ten did worse than I predicted.  Pretty much the only thing that exceeded my expectations was True Grit.  (Speaking of True Grit, I managed to force my grandfather to watch it.  Not only that, I got him to admit he didn't think it was bad.  I consider this a personal victory.)

Good riddance 2010. Maybe cinemas will squeeze more filthy lucre from the pockets of Moviegoer Mike in 2011, and maybe they won't have to rely on 3D to do it.

If 2011 is going to inspire us to waste our hard-earned, »

Movie Poster of the Week: The Best of 2010

31 December 2010 12:43 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Tied for 1. I Am Love and I’M Still Here

My two favorite movie posters of 2010: one for one of my favorite films of the year, the other for a film that I didn’t even see (not from lack of desire, though Casey Affleck’s opening weekend fess-up dampened my enthusiasm somewhat), and a perfect pair.

I have a lot of affection for the simple movie poster that places perfectly chosen type on a beautiful film still, but these are something else. For one thing, their images are portraits rather than film stills (Tilda Swinton at her most elegant, Joaquin Phoenix at his most studiously disheveled), and for another, the title treatments are given equal billing to the image, seemingly fighting with it, potentially overwhelming it, ultimately embracing it. It’s nice to see serif and script fonts being used so stylishly in the age of sans-serif minimalism »

Tambay’s 2010 Lists – Most Memorable & Most Overrated Films Of 2010

31 December 2010 11:23 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Instead of listing my “top films” or the “best films” of 2010, as is customary, I’m instead going to list the “most memorable” films I saw in 2010; films I saw that stayed with me long after I saw them, whether the thoughts/emotions elicited were positive or negative, but at least they managed to move me in some way; or films that encouraged some further action in me; films that I recommend you seek out, if you haven’t already seen them. And I list them in no particular order: Black Swan; Venus Noire; Another Year; Un Homme Qui Crie; Legacy; Moloch Tropical; Carlos; The Tillman Story; Mother; Enter The Void; Un Prophete; I Am Love; Exit Through the Gift Shop.

And instead of my list of the worst films of 2010, I’m going with my selections for the “most overrated” films of 2010, also in no particular order: Toy Story 3, »

“Social Network,” “True Grit” make our “Hollywood Top Ten Movies of the Year”

31 December 2010 10:17 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: How will we remember The Year in Film 2010?

Will it be the year that 3D made its comeback official, as audiences donned glasses to view such pictures as “Alice in Wonderland” or “Toy Story 3,” powering those films to record box-office takes? Will it be remembered as the year of the auteur, as maverick filmmakers Danny Boyle, Darren Aronofsky, David Fincher and the Coen Brothers released what many are calling the best films of their celebrated careers.

Or will we just recognize 2010 as the year we accepted the fact that this is Christopher Nolan’s world, and we’re just lucky he lets us play around in it every once in a while.

So many films entertained us in 2010. But these 10 were special, the ones we revisited often. If you haven’t seen any of these films yet, make sure you rectify that before 2011 gets underway. »

2010 In Review: Scott’s Films of the Year

31 December 2010 9:46 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I’ve seen where plenty of critics have said that 2010 was a pretty abysmal year for movie releases. I, for one, think, it was pretty fantastic. I’ve reviewed a handful of them this year and a couple even make this list.

10) Scott Pilgrim vs The World

As an immensely huge fan of the comics this was by far one of my most anticipated movies of the year, following everything from casting to the film’s release back in August. Ultimately it didn’t quite live up to my expectations as I had wished. That being said, I still enjoyed it quite a bit. If you distance yourself from the source material, then it’s very impressive. The effects are some of the best in recent years and the majority of the casting is done very, very well.

9) Tron: Legacy

Simply put, Tron: Legacy isn’t going to win Best Picture anytime soon, »

Five Nastiest Oscar Campaigns

31 December 2010 9:25 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Would The Social Network friend Black Swan just to cruelly defriend it? Would The Fighter distract The King's Speech just to set it up for a sucker punch? Don't underestimate what studios and flacks will do in order to win the Oscar wars. Some examples of down 'n' dirty awards-season battles: 1. Shakespeare in Love Outflanks Saving Private Ryan: There was no way Steven Spielberg's war epic wasn't going to win Best Picture. Until, that was, impresario Harvey Weinstein carried off a sneak invasion of voters' mailboxes with screener copies of his Bard-powered romantic comedy. Accusations flew that Weinstein was trying to "buy" the Oscar—yeah, as if, anybody had ever gotten one »

Say What? Hollywood’s 25 Best Quotes of 2010

31 December 2010 9:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

What do Megan Fox, Dolph Lundgren, iguanas, lesbian sex scenes, and The Hulk all have in common?

Besides the fact that we love them, all these things enter into our list of the wittiest, most shocking, and awe-inspiring quotes from Hollywood’s best and brightest this past year.

Let’s take a look back at some of the soundbites that sent shockwaves through the web, and a few you may have missed. Who’s got the sharpest tongue, and who should just keep their mouth shut? Read on…

Why’d Megan Fox Get Canned from ‘Transformers 3′?

“I had been tanning a lot so that Michael would be happy with my skin tone. Every spare moment of sun that was outside, I had to be in it. It’s not going to happen again because of the damage and the possible skin cancer.” –Megan Fox on Michael Bay, before she »

Kristin Says: Vote For The A-List Actress With The Best Makeup Look Of 2010!

31 December 2010 8:40 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Which A-list actress had the best makeup look of 2010? Check out the photos and vote now!

2010 was a year for some rather beautiful beauty, especially in the best makeup category. I decided to count down my favorite beauty looks from the year and see which makeup look deserves the Best Makeup Look of 2010. Who will win? That’s up to you. Let’s check out the contenders:

Amanda Seyfried at the Oscars has the three “p” of makeup: perfect, pretty and poreless. The amethyst smoky eye was gorgeous and the pink lip was sheer beauty.

I still cannot get over Taylor Swift’s transformation at the AMAs. The dark lined eye and sexy pink lip looked so sultry with the sleek hairstyle she rocked that night.

Christina Ricci found a look she loved and it was sheer perfection: gorgeous long lashes and one of the most perfect red lip colors »

31 December 2010 6:07 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Actor Jerry Murdock has shared his Best and Worst Films of 2010 with us.  Thanks for asking about my picks. Honestly, I don't see many movies in the theater anymore (annoying people, too expen$ive) and am quite picky about seeing films. I usually wait for feedback from critics and friends before I see anything. With that being said...here goes:

Best: Inception, True Grit, Black Swan, The American, Kick Ass and Slices Of Life

Worst: Only one...Jonah Hex. (I am a big fan of the comic...I Had to see it. I hated this movie so much, it made me want to harm puppies) »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

Natalie Portman Denies Rumors She Will Star in Superman or The Dark Knight Rises

31 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

The popular actress, who is sure to garner an Academy Award nomination this season, has denied being involved in both Zack Snyder and Chris Nolan's superhero projects. Director Zack Snyder (Sucker Punch, Watchmen) has been tapped to helm the yet to be titled Superman film, scheduled to enter production early next year for a theatrical release in the second half of 2012. One of the actresses recently linked to the re-cast role of Lois Lane is Black Swan star Natalie Portman. If that weren't enough, her name has also repeatedly been mentioned with director Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman film; The Dark Knight Rises. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, though, the in-demand Portman clears up her rumored association to both projects; first with Superman, "What is that? ( »

Natalie Portman Denies Superman & Dark Knight Rumors

31 December 2010 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

While comic book fans already loved Natalie Portman in the Wachowskis' take on Alan Moore and David Lloyd's V For Vendetta and are looking forward to her playing Jane Foster in Kenneth Branagh's Thor , the critical and awards heat she's been getting for her role in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan has put the 17-year acting vet's name on everyone's lips. Two of the many movies she's been rumored to be in line for are Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's upcoming tentpole movies, Zack Snyder's Superman: The Man of Steel and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises . In an interview for this week's Oscar issue of Entertainment Weekly , Portman denied the rumors about her appearing in either (or both) films. When asked about Superman, she told them: "What is »

Mila Kunis has insisted that her intense training for Black Swan swayed her against pursuing ballet any further. The actress told USA Today that she was unprepared for the rigorous preparation necessary for director Darren Aronofsky's erotic thriller. "I don't know if I could ever put my foot in a pointed shoe again," she said. Kunis admitted that she recently considered taking up ballet again, but quickly changed (more) »

The 2010 Year in Movies Rap-Up

30 December 2010 8:00 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Sick and tired of all your typical year-end lists ranking the best and worst movies, performances, tent scenes, etc? Then you’ve come to the right place.

In the spirit of trying something different, we enlisted iLLspoKinN and Rabbi Darkside (who you may recognize as a beatboxing coach from MTV’s “Made”), two of New York City’s most gifted freestyle rappers, to bring you the 2010 Year in Movies Rap-Up. The premise is simple: We held up flash cards with the names of the year’s 40 biggest films and asked them to incorporate the titles into a single freestyle session.

Warning: The following video contains no “writtens.” What you are about to see is 100 percent pure improv magic.

Morning Meme: Daniel Radcliffe's Ruling Ambition, President Obama Is Camera Shy, and Reggie Bush Says No "No Homo!"

30 December 2010 6:51 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I utterly adore Jake Shears, and the fact that he’s happy to be a role model for gay teens when so many other celebrities are saying “I’m a performer, not a role model” is 17 different shades of awesome. “If I’m the go-to for new gays, and if I can be someone that gay teenagers can look at as someone who’s happy and who has made a good life for himself, then that’s great.”

The White House Press Corps. has been told in no uncertain terms that they will not be photographing President Obama shirtless while he’s vacationing in Hawaii. Which is a shame, because I bet Putin would do a topless runway show.

Actor Jesse Kozel Shares His Best And Worst Films Of 2010 With GeekTyrant

30 December 2010 6:17 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Continuing with our 2010 year end celebration actor Jesse Kozel had given us his awesome best and worst list of 2010. Thanks Jesse!

Thanks for the opportunity to spill the beans on what I think is riding the line between good and bad in my world.  

I only wanted to include films that played to wide audiences either at festivals with large crowds, theatrical releases or if they were available on DVD.

Best of 2010:

 Black Swan - Aronofsky does it again with this mind bending thriller set in the world of Ballet.  You know those people are crazy, but now you get to see inside the head of a prima ballerina for the first time.  Stellar performances and an overall captivating setting make for the best film I've seen this year.

Colour from the Dark - Technically this had a screening some time ago in NYC, but never made any type »
