The Complete Collection of 2010 Movie Montage Compilations

22 December 2010 12:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

So far I've collected six separate 2010 compilation videos looking back at the this year's collection of films. To the best of my knowledge, these six videos include clips from 303 films and together they total 34:34. I have included the complete list of films on the second page if you are interested. Let me know if I'm missing any, but I think it's pretty safe to say if you liked a film in 2010 one of these following videos will feature it.

So, have a watch and leave your thoughts on which one is your favorite in the comments below and if you find another one online that I should add to the collection shoot me an email.

The Year in Film in 6 Minutes

14 December 2010 6:41 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

If you were trapped under a rock this year (it happens) take six minutes to watch this YouTube short. Half music video, half trailer remix, “Filmography 2010″ cuts together the year’s hits, flops and everything in between to catchy music.

Even if you’re a jaded movie buff who hates year end schmaltz, the recap should pluck your heartstrings. So many great and touching moments this year, it’s enough to make you wonder how the Golden Globes managed to totally blow their nominations.

But we digress. Check out the video after the jump.

How many films do you recognize? Below is full list of the films in the order that they appear. Enjoy!

Music:

1. Ratatat – Nostrand

2. Kanye West – Power

3. Rooney – Not In My House

4. Apartment – Fall Into Place

5. Civil Twilight – Letters from the Sky

14 December 2010 5:51 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Every December these ‘best of the year’ video montages make the last 12 months of cinema seem infinitely more pleasant to sit through than they actually were. Here’s the first of many that are sure to be made before the sand in the hourglass runs out on 2010, this one from a gal going by the name of Gen I, who sent in this effort to /film.

There’s 270 movies in this montage below ranging from all the well known blockbusters, to smaller docs, foreign fare and even some Japanese anime! I can’t begin to imagine how long or how much skill it takes to put something as high-quality as this together…

Full list of the tracks and films shown are below;

Music:

1. Ratatat – Nostrand

2. Kanye West – Power

3. Rooney – Not In My House

4. Apartment – Fall Into Place

5. Civil Twilight – Letters from the Sky

14 December 2010 2:44 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Now that we're about two weeks till the end of 2010, the film industry will be looking back to figure out the best movies of the year and will pick winners during the many awards shows. Today, we have a video that captures 2010 pretty well by showing scenes from the year's 270 films, including some that have yet to hit theaters. There will likely be plenty more of these montages in the next few weeks, but the video is definitely one of the better ones that I have seen. Check out the six-minute video below, in addition to a full list of all the films that were used. Questions: How many of the films listed did you actually see in full? Video: Films in Order of Appearance: 1. Iron Man 2 2. The Social Network 3. Saw 3D 4. Tron: Legacy 5. Never Let Me Go 6. Legion 7. The Book of Eli 8. Easy A 9. The Runaways 10. Farewell 11.

Must Watch: Filmography 2010 – 270 Movies in 6 Minutes

13 December 2010 10:38 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It's getting closer and closer to the end of the year, and we've already seen a couple top 10 lists and critic choice awards announced. Since we began posting "best of the year" video montages a few years back, it seems a lot of new wannabe video editors have emerged. Maybe the software has become cheaper or more accessible, or maybe the coverage on sites like /Film and other movie blogs garnered interest in the task. Last year I received a dozen or so best of videos, most of them were not anything we would share on the site. I think we posted three in total last year, two of which were created by video editors we've featured in previous years [1]. Today I was sent the first "best of 2010" video montage of the season, from a video editor named Gen I. I'll admit that while I was expecting the worst, I came out pleasantly surprised. »

Spin-ematical: New on DVD for 8/3

3 August 2010 12:02 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Kick-Ass

At this point, is there anything left to say about Kick-Ass? Real people become vigilante superheroes. It's been done before, but this time, it's got a jaw-dropping Hit Girl, a role that's made one Chloe Moretz a sensation. In his review, Todd Gilchrist wrote: "as a full-length film, Kick-Ass is a great comic book come to life, but not much else. A faithful recreation of the rhythms of episodic funny-paper storytelling ... [it] never quite finds enough cohesion or dramatic clarity to become a fully satisfying film." If you're on the fence, you'll want to rent it, but for the rest, Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

It's the story of a wimpy, wise-cracking kid making his way through middle school, but as John Gholson reviewed, it "should've been titled Diary of a Selfish, Dishonest Punk." He continues: "It »

Writer-Director Julie Davis Exclusive Interview Finding Bliss

9 June 2010 1:22 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Finally an entertaining romantic comedy about the adult film industry told from a woman’s point of view. Move over Kevin Smith. Julie Davis’s new movie, Finding Bliss, has an intriguing storyline and more heart and soul than Smith’s big studio Zack & Miri Make a Porno and it was made on one tenth of the budget. The irony is amusing because back in 1998, Davis was one of several up-and-coming film directors including Smith that sat down together for a famous portrait by photographer Annie Leibowitz for Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue on promising New Wave directors.

Written and directed by Davis, Finding Bliss is a hilarious exploration of the adult film industry through the eyes of an idealistic 25-year-old award-winning film school grad, Jody Balaban (Leelee Sobieski), who’s faced with the hard decision of taking the only well-paying industry job she has yet been offered – editing porn at Grind Productions. »

‘Greek’ rocks but ‘Shrek’ reigns at No. 1

6 June 2010 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The newbies didn't come close.

Universal's "Get Him to the Greek," an R-rated comedy about a drug-addled rocker, knocked off Lionsgate's action comedy "Killers" and two other wide openers but failed to keep DreamWorks Animation's 3D laugher "Shrek Forever After" from three-peating atop the domestic boxoffice with room to spare. The leggy Paramount-distributed pic fetched an estimated $25.3 million during the weekend for $183 million in cumulative coin through its third frame.

Starring British actor and comedian Russell Brand, "Greek" rung up $17.4 million in second place, while "Killers" -- toplined by Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl -- registered $16.1 million in third place. Fox's live-action family comedy "Marmaduke" bowed limply with $11.3 million in sixth, and Warner Bros.-distributed sci-fi thriller "Splice" pieced together just $7.5 million to open in eighth.

Disney's "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" fell 54% in its second weekend to $13.9 million in fourth place with a $59.5 cume. One rung lower, »

Memories porn again on-screen

4 June 2010 7:19 AM, PDT | NYPost.com | See recent New York Post news »

Inspired by her experiences as an editor at the Playboy Channel, Julie Davis' "Finding Bliss" is a mildly funny, stereotype-stuffed comedy about a straight-laced aspiring filmmaker who is forced to go to work for a producer of adult films. "We don't use the 'P' word," says her boss (Kristen Johnson) at Grind Productions, who has hired virginal Nyu grad Jody (Leelee Sobieski) to reluctantly provide a woman's perspective for "Finding Bliss." The film is also the latest opus from a ridiculously prolific, wildly »

Film: Review: Finding Bliss

3 June 2010 12:44 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Call it the Frozen Assets Rule: If the one-joke premise of a comedy is accompanied—or begs to be accompanied—by the sound of a record scratching, avert your eyes. For those unschooled in Shelley Long’s cinematic misadventures post-Cheers, Frozen Assets stars Corbin Bernsen as a corporate executive sent to run a small-town bank—a sperm bank, that is. [Screeeeeech.] Along the same lines, Julie Davis’ dismal comedy Finding Bliss stars Leelee Sobieski as an award-winning Nyu film school graduate who, after months of directing (traffic on studio lots), finally lands a job as a Hollywood film editor »

Qualities for Casting Comedies

3 June 2010 9:18 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

What qualities do you look for in an actor when casting a comedy?Daniel TalbottNew York; founding artistic director, Rising Phoenix RepI know it's often one of the hardest things to do, especially when you're auditioning for a comedy, but I love when an actor focuses on the action and truth of the scene instead of trying to be funny. If possible, let the play do the work, and if it's funny and you're able to embody the character honestly and are making strong, bold, and high-stakes choices, usually the play will carry you. You'll be funny in the context of the story instead of just trying to get laughs.I think in most plays, comedy is about action and the extremity of the situation. We laugh because there's something so human about what's happening onstage that it touches the clownish humanity in all of us.There are definitely comedies that require a certain style, »

Leelee Sobieski's Blissful Adulthood

3 June 2010 7:33 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

It's tempting to still think of Leelee Sobieski as that underage ingénue from "Deep Impact," "Eyes Wide Shut," "The Glass House" and her Emmy-nominated role in the TV miniseries "Joan of Arc," but according to the fair-skinned beauty (who turns 27 this month and, as of December, is a new mother), the opposite is true: "People think that I'm older than I am because I've been working since I was 11. They think, 'Oh, she's been around forever. She's in her mid-30s.' But I'm not."

In the new indie comedy "Finding Bliss," written and directed by Julie Davis ("Amy's Orgasm"), Sobieski stars as Jody, a naïve film school grad who fights against her conservative impulses when she takes an editing gig at an adult film company, specifically to take advantage of their filmmaking equipment after hours. Surrounded by silicone-enhanced toys and talent (plus a full-frontal Jamie Kennedy), Judy is forced »

Ron Jeremy Interview Finding Bliss

1 June 2010 12:03 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ron Jeremy has been the hardest working man in Hollywood for over three decades, but he’s putting some distance between himself and the world of porn these days as he contemplates retirement and moves more and more into mainstream film. In his latest outing, the multi-faceted actor/writer/producer/director turns in a highly entertaining cameo in Julie Davis’ cutting edge romantic comedy, Finding Bliss.

Jeremy talked to us about how his new movie compared to Zack and Miri Make a Porno, what he sees as the uncertain future of the adult entertainment industry, and why he absolutely despises the internet. He also discussed his involvement in The Great Porn Debates and updated us on his latest work including an appearance on the Travel Channel, a hilarious documentary entitled Midgets Vs. Mascots, and a starring role opposite Billy Zane in Guido, a dramatic feature film which has just begun shooting in Los Angeles. »

The following synopsis is from the Phase 4 Films press release: "Finding Bliss follows aspiring filmmaker Jody Balaban (a strong performance by Sobieski), who quickly realizes the closest she’ll ever get to directing is directing traffic on the studio lot.   That [...] »
