6 Things With Da7e [Goodbye 2010]

31 December 2010 3:39 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Merry Happy End 2010, everyone. There's something about the end of the year, probably having much to do with the annual trek back to the suburb where I grew up, that brings everything into a sharp, marzipan-tinged relief. Choices I made throughout the year were good or bad, people I love and people I'm thankful for are the most important, and my year in media condenses drastically as I have free time to take in the many end-of-the-year lists. I'm not one for end-of-the-year lists. I like lists, and as someone who has worked on the internet for almost a full decade, I know the value of content that can be skimmed first and read second. However, the end of the year is such an arbitrary time to make these lists. It's commercialism that's the motivator, like it always is. Everyone gets time off at the end of the year, time »

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, »

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, »

2010 in Reviews: 60 movies we watched and rated this year!

31 December 2010 8:04 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

[Editor's note: If anyone says 2010 was a sh!% year for movies, please refer them to this post.]

Instead of the usual "best" or "worst" films of the year lists, I thought a good way to take a look at the highs and lows of the 2010 film year would be to compile almost every single review we published in 2010 and let readers meander through the wasteland as it were.

I'm really amazed at the range of films we managed to cover from around the globe this year. Quiet Earth has certainly come a long way over the years and it's really due to the talents and passion of our team of writers who literally travel a world of fests to bring news and reviews of new films.

I hope you're all taking notes. Many of these films were from fests and will probably be hitting VOD and Blu-ray sometime in the new year, so this is a good chance to get a start on your must-watch lists.

Week in geek's best of 2010

31 December 2010 6:26 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It's not been a vintage year for fanboy fare, writes Ben Child, but he's managed to find a top five worth shouting about. Post your own shortlist below

Once again we find ourselves in the season of lists, and just as was the case last year, I find myself incapable of finding 10 films that I can recommend as the year's best. Does this say something about the dearth of quality fanboy fare? Quite possibly. We may have emerged from the bad old years of Joel Schumacher Batman movies and Ben Affleck in a pimp suit, but there are still more poor and distinctly average films out there than there are great ones.

This year saw the arrival of Predators, much-hyped but ultimately a tired retread with few new ideas to revive the franchise, not to mention a pointless Laurence Fishburne pseudo-cameo. We also had the fetid Jonah Hex, in which »

2010 In Review: Phil’s Films of the Year

31 December 2010 4:19 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Well this is it. The end of 2010, and a last chance to look back on just what films made the year for me. There’s bound to be some surprises for some of you out there – although if you’ve been reading Blogomatic3000 for the past year you’ll no doubt have a good idea where this list is headed!

This list is compiled of all the cinematic releases of 2010, not the DVD or Blu-ray releases, you can check that list out here.

10) Machete

The type of film that has been long-missed in my house: a loud, gory, Ott, macho arse-kicking extravaganza that ticks all the good action movie boxes and isn’t afraid to be politically incorrect, sleazy, sexist and even racist! Compared to the glut of PG-13 rated PC action movies that we’ve seen on the big screen in recent years, this film is a breath of fresh air. »

January 2011 Preview

30 December 2010 3:43 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

To allow breathing room for the swarm of movies that hit theaters each December, Hollywood has historically burnt off its less-exciting fare in January. With a few exceptions, that seems to be the case again in January 2011. Without an Avatar-like holdover from December, it's inevitable that January 2011 will fall short of January 2010's record-setting $1.06 billion gross. Jan. 7The first weekend of January finds Nicolas Cage movie Season of the Witch facing the planned nationwide expansion of Country Strong. Season of the Witch, which was delayed from March 2010, doesn't seem to have much going for it. Medieval-set movies that don't involve Robin Hood rarely make much money, and Mr. Cage's drawing power has been spotty, including relatively soft returns for Kick-Ass ($48.1 million) and The Sorcerer's Apprentice ($63.2 million). Additionally, Season marks distributor Relativity Media's second nationwide release following The Warrior's Way, which was botched so badly that it earned less than $6 million since opening early December. »

Adam Whyte’s Top 10 Film’s of 2010

30 December 2010 3:02 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Matt here…

Adam Whyte joined Obsessed With Film in April of this year and has contributed regular feature articles and reviews from Scotland. This year he attended the Edinburgh Film Festival, reporting daily reports of all that he saw and writing several excellent full length reviews. It’s my hope he will once again attend the festival for us this year and continue his superb writings on movies past, present and future for us.

I particularly love the Top Ten of the year he has turned in here with great detailed reasons why the following are the best he saw in 2010. And having seen and very much enjoyed all the films on the list, I certainly concur…

10. Shutter Island

I have seen every movie Martin Scorsese has made, and I do not believe any of them are outright bad. Few would argue that his latest “Shutter Island” is up there »

Oscar Race: 241 Screenplays & 77 Scores Eligible For Oscars

30 December 2010 2:18 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that 241 screenplays (134 original and 107 adapted) are eligible for Best Screenplay nominations and 77 films are eligible for Best Original Score (not including Black Swan, The Fighter or The Kids Are All Right).

Earlier we shared the 248 films eligible for Best Picture. Even though there are great deal of films that were amazing movie going experiences, Academy voters are likely only to concentrate on the films that have garnered awards from other organizations. 

Below are the front runners for each of the categories thanks to Awards Daily:

Best Original Screenplay

Lisa Cholodenko, Stuart Blumberg -The Kids Are All Right David Seidler – The King’s Speech Christopher NolanInception Mark Heyman, Andres Heinz, John J. McLaughlinBlack Swan Mike Leigh – Another Year Scott Silver, Paul Tamasy, Eric JohnsonThe Fighter Derek CianfranceBlue Valentine

Academy Names 241 Screenplays and 77 Scores Eligible for the Oscar

30 December 2010 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We know you were losing sleep over it, so we're happy to be the first to tell you that Furry Vengeance and Yogi Bear are both eligible to be nominated for Best Screenplay Oscars on January 25. Also that Marmaduke score that has been wearing out your iPod? It's eligible too. However, the inclusion of these 2010 masterpieces really isn't that big a surprise. With final nominations just over a month away the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that 241 screenplays - 134 original and 107 adapted - are eligible for a Best Screenplay nomination and that music from 77 films is eligible for Best Original Score (not including Black Swan, The Fighter or The Kids Are All Right [1]). Add those to the 248 films eligible [2] for Best Picture and Oscar voters have a lot of work to do in the coming weeks. Kind of.

10 Best Movie Quotes Of 2010

30 December 2010 8:13 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The most memorable movie lines require three things: They must sound like something a real person (or at least the character uttering them) would, you know, actually say; they must be smarter, funnier and snappier than what a real person would actually say (this sounds like it would contradict the first point, but it doesn't); and they must have a great actor to give them a great delivery. It's a delicate balance, and one that takes both skill -- and a tiny bit of luck -- to achieve.

This year was packed with plenty of ear-pleasing, intensely quotable movie quotes, ranging from the highbrow ("The Social Network" and "True Grit") to the not-so-highbrow ("The Other Guys" and "Machete"). Some movies -- here's looking at you, "Social Network" -- were so full of amazing one-liners and witty exchanges that I could have made a top 10 list just drawing from them. But in the interest of fairness, »

Cinematic Shame: Worst of the Year

29 December 2010 6:58 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

year in review part 5 of several

I thought it would be tasteless to drop this lump of coal on Christmas so I saved it one day. It's naughty, not nice. But before we get to the unsatisfying trends, performances, and movies of the year, some caveats. I didn't see everything and am not, generally speaking, paid to attend terrible movies. Even when I'm doing freelance gigs, nobody has ever said to me "Nathaniel, we'd love for you to write a 3,000 word essay about Yogi Bear." [Editors of the world take note: I would totally do this for money.]

Most Repetitive Actor or Actress Dear Leonardo DiCaprio, you have now done three movies in a row where you're a tortured soul with an emotionally unstable dead wife. This is an even more specific brick-wall niche then when Jodie Foster kept getting trapped in small places or when Julianne Moore kept losing her children (imaginary or otherwise).

DiCaprio's new franchise!

It's time to shake things up. »

This year was full of big releases on the movie and television front, with "Iron Man 2," "Kick-Ass," and "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" all vying for attention at the box office and on the Internet. However, this year's list of the 10 most-watched trailers and clips features quite a few projects that didn't appear on the big screen.

In fact, with a few exceptions, the trailers and clips that were watched the most times here on Splash Page will probably surprise you — so let's get on with the list, shall we?

A Look Back At My 30 Interviews From This Awards Season Thus Far

29 December 2010 12:38 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Here’s a look back at the 30 extensive, 1-on-1 interviews — from A(ronofsky) to Z(sigmond) — that I have conducted over the course of the 2010 awards season thus far. I really have to pinch myself when I reflect on just how many wonderful opportunities I have had to speak with the people most responsible for the best films of this year — and many others — and how many more exciting interviews are already being lined up for the coming weeks and months. For now, though, enjoy…

Mark Millar Claims 'Most High Profile Actor Of 2010' Will Star In Adaptation Of 'Superior'

29 December 2010 5:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If the films based on the comic books of Mark Millar (or indeed, the comic books themselves) came anywhere near to matching the creator's ability to hype them up, his success rate would be close to Stanley Kubrick's. Instead, the William Castle of the comic book world has been behind "Wanted" and "Kick-Ass," and has spent 2010 claiming that he was writing the next "X-Men" movie for Fox (possibly confusing 'himself' with 'Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman'), that a sequel to "Kick-Ass" had been green-lit, and that Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp were going to star in the Tony Scott-helmed… »

Top 10 Breakout Stars Of 2010

28 December 2010 3:04 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Every year Hollywood shows off plenty of fresh talent on the big screen, and 2010 was no exception. Young breakout stars took the movie world by storm in films such as "The Social Network," "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Karate Kid." And, even if their film wasn't the biggest box office it, the young leads of "Let Me In," "Kick-Ass" and "Winter's Bone" left fond memories in everyone's minds that seems to bode well for their careers.

With the New Year right around the corner, we decided to celebrate the 10 biggest breakout stars of 2010, reflecting on the films that tossed them into the spotlight and looking forward to what they have coming up next.

Andrew Garfield

Breakout Role: Jesse Eisenberg might be in the running for Best Actor Oscar at this year's Academy Awards, but Andrew Garfield stole the show in "The Social Network."

Utah & Phoenix Film Critics: 127 Inceptions For the King

28 December 2010 2:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's so cute that film critics circles are so interested in "their own" as it were. Boston is always accused of rallying behind Boston-set films (in their defense they often have many of them to choose from) and a few days back Utah, where 127 Hours takes place, really handed that film some water in its moment of need. Not that the Academy voters are actively debating Utah's choices before filling out their ballots this week... they're more likely to be swayed by James Franco's grandma (see video after the jump).

But given that 127 Hours has been slipping down a thin rocky crevice away from sunny awards heat (Awkward Metaphor Alert) it'll take every honor it can get. Will AMPAS go for it or do we have another Into the Wild (2007) on our hands i.e. lots of preseason heat, little to show for it on Oscar nom morn?

MTV Splash Page's Top 10 Interviews Of 2010

As we inch ever closer to the year's end, we've ranked our favorite comics of the year, our favorite movies and television series, and even our favorite news stories of 2010. And while that's all well and good, it's worth noting that the projects we included on those lists weren't always our readers' favorite subjects this year.

That's why we put together a list each year that ranks the most popular stories published on the site over the last 12 months. After all, these were the stories that you were most interested in this year, and the subjects that brought readers to the site most often — according to our traffic data, at least.

In years past, we simply offered a list of the Top 10 Stories Of The Year, but this time around we decided to be a bit more comprehensive and post three Top 10 lists, beginning with the year's most popular interviews, »

Mark Millar Says 'Superior' Movie Will Star 'Most High Profile Actor Of 2010'

28 December 2010 8:43 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Between "Wanted," "Kick-Ass" and the recently announced "Nemesis," comic book creator Mark Millar has certainly enjoyed no small amount of success in Hollywood thus far. Now, based on his latest remarks, it appears that another one of his projects is about to make a major splash in the form of "Superior," his latest creator-owned project.

"Huge news," Millar told his followers on Twitter last week. "'Superior' movie just locked down most high profile actor of 2010. Official release in January."

In fairness, Millar isn't unaccustomed to hyping up his own material, but he typically delivers on what he's promising — from a certain vantage point, at the very least. But even if Millar is telling the truth about the latest "Superior" development, a key question remains: just who the heck is the "high profile actor" he's talking about?

Identifying one actor as the single most high profile actor of 2010 isn't easy. It's »
