29 December 2012 9:16 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Top Ten Worst Movies of 2012 (That I Saw)

27 December 2012 8:39 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't go see every movie. I do my best to see as many as I can, but there are some I just don't feel I need to see in order to do my job. Those I tend to skip are films I'm quite certain I will not enjoy because what need is there, really, for me to head into a movie in a foul mood, with little enthusiasm to review a movie? Especially if said movie is the reason my mood is so foul. That said, sometimes the job takes you places you would prefer not to go and sometimes those movies you don't expect to be very good are movies you need to go see. Such films found their way onto this list. Some of the other entries are simply films I wanted to be good, films that piqued my curiosity or just thought would be fun. They weren't. »

Thn’s 2012 Rundown – March and April

19 December 2012 3:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jennifer Lawrence and co might’ve pretended that they had no idea The Hunger Games was going to be such a hit, we all knew it and so did the studios. As learned with Harry Potter and Twilight, teenagers on a mission and semi-attractive actors secure hysteria; the resultant screaming fans proved this to be true.

He lurks in his Lerkim, cold under his roof, where he makes his own clothes out of miff-muffered moof: rhymes like these have made Dr Seuss a remembered and loved writer. His environmentally minded story The Lorax was the latest to get the film treatment in March with the help of Betty White, Zac Efron and Taylor Swift. Forward thinking in the 70s the film floundered in 2012, but thanks to the timing of its release made a lot of money.

Miami Vice disappointed, A-team excited (a bit), but 21 Jumpstreet really impressed. The funny – Jonah Hill »

Oscars: 75 Songs vie for Best Original Song led by Les Misérables, Ted & Safety Not Guaranteed

13 December 2012 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Oscars are almost upon us, and the past few weeks have treated us to the shortlists competing in a number of categories, including Best Animated Feature, Best Visual Effects, Best Documentary, and Best Original Score.

With the nominations announcement creeping ever closer at the start of next month, the Academy have now announced a seventy-five-long list of songs that are eligible in the Best Original Song category.

The list features some absolutely stellar songs that have debuted on the big screen this year, including Adele’s impressive Bond theme, Skyfall.

Tom Hooper’s highly anticipated Les Misérables is also in the running with Suddenly, composed specifically for the film, and it should be great to see how it’s received both by audiences and the Academy in the coming weeks.

We’ve got plenty of choices from animated films in the mix – the animated ones are often the strongest »

Adele's 'Skyfall' theme deemed eligible for original song Oscar

11 December 2012 2:45 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There are 75 original songs that qualify for the Oscar this year, but really everyone has been waiting to hear about one.

Adele’s title theme to Skyfall surged to #1 on iTunes just days after debuting in October, but some feared the number by her and Paul Epworth would be ruled ineligible for the Oscar because it incorporates elements of the classic 007 theme, which of course is not original.

But the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided it was not a significant enough problem to boot it from the potential nominees, and included it without »

Begin the Campaign for 'Ladies of Tampa' as 75 Songs Compete for Original Song at the 2013 Oscars

11 December 2012 1:29 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I mentioned on today's podcast that my three nominees for Best Original Song for the 2013 Critics' Choice Awards were "100 Black Coffins" from Django Unchained, "Skyfall" from Skyfall and "Ladies of Tampa" from Magic Mike. Of my nominees only "Skyfall" made the official list of nominees, but hopefully the Academy will right a couple of wrongs as both "100 Black Coffins" and Matthew McConaughey's "Ladies of Tampa" are among the 75 songs listed as in contention for a nomination at the 2013 Oscars. The Academy just released the following list of which all voting members of the Music Branch will receive a Reminder List of works submitted in the category and a DVD copy of the song clips. Members will be asked to watch the clips and then vote in the order of their preference for not more than five achievements in the category. The five achievements receiving the highest number of votes »

104 Scores in the Race for Best Original Score at the Oscars

11 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Oscars are a little over two months away, and with so many fantastic films released throughout this year, the anticipation surrounding the announcement of the nominations next month is running on high.

So far, we’ve had the shortlists for the Best Animated Feature, the Best Visual Effects, and the Best Documentary categories.

Now the Academy has announced the list of 104 films that are eligible in the Best Original Score category, and it’s going to be very interesting to see what makes the final cut come nominations time next month.

I think Hans Zimmer’s score for The Dark Knight Rises is, hopefully, a lock, because it is amazing. I also loved James Horner’s score for The Amazing Spider-Man, but can’t decide whether or not I think it will earn a nomination.

Alexandre Desplat has three films in the running this year, with Argo, Rise of the Guardians, »

Some Thoughts on the 104 Original Scores Competing for 2013 Oscar Nominations

10 December 2012 3:37 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As far as I'm concerned, the two most memorable scores of the year belong to Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild. That said, I made an egregious and unforgivable mistake when filling out my Critics' Choice nominations and forgot to include not one of them, but Both of them! Shame. I feel it. Now I have to hope my fellow Bfca members came through where I failed. However, we will discuss Critics' Choice nominations more on the upcoming episodes of the RopeofSilicon podcast, for now we're talking Oscar as the Academy has released a complete list of all 104 original scores competing for Best Original Score at the 2013 Oscars. I have not yet posted my predictions for Best Original Score and while I am making a fuss above concerning Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild, I think both of those stand a very strong chance at a nomination this year. »

Martha Thomases: Where Are Our New Nerds?

7 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In last Monday’s New York Times Media Watch columns, they ran a list of the ten films released this year that had the highest box office ion their opening weekends. What’s amazing to me is that the top five (Marvel’s The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Hunger Games, Amazing Spider-Man and Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2) can all be classified in the fantasy genre, or, as I like to call it, nerd stuff.

Of the next five (Skyfall, Brave, Ted, Madagascar 3 and Dr. SeussThe Lorax), three are aimed primarily at children, and one is a James Bond film, which has its own separate but overlapping geek audience. Only Ted could be considered a movie aimed at what was once the wide, mainstream audience, and even then, because it is an R-rated comedy, that limits the wideness.

When did our beloved nerd culture become so dominant? »
