Mulholland Drive Tops BBC's 100 Best Movies of the 21st Century List

23 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »

The 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century: BBC Polls Critics From Around The Globe

23 August 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, the BBC polled a bunch of critics to determine the 100 greatest American films of all time and only six films released after 2000 placed at all. This year, the BBC decided to determine the “new classics,” films from the past 16 years that will likely stand the test of time, so they polled critics from around the globe for their picks of the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century so far. David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” tops the list, Wong Kar-Wai’s “In The Mood For Love” places second, and Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers both have 2 films in the top 25. See the full results below.

Though the list itself is fascinating, what’s also compelling are the statistics about the actual list. According to the the BBC, they polled 177 film critics from every continent except Antarctica. »

Mullholland Drive tops critics' list of best 21st century films

23 August 2016 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?

Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.

BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily. 

What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut, »

The 21st Century’s 100 Greatest Films, According to Critics

22 August 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although we’re only about 16% into the 21st century thus far, the thousands of films that have been released have provided a worthy selection to reflect on the cinematic offerings as they stand. We’ve chimed in with our favorite animations, comedies, sci-fi films, and have more to come, and now a new critics’ poll that we’ve taken part in has tallied up the 21st century’s 100 greatest films overall.

The BBC has polled 177 critics from around the world, resulting in a variety of selections, led by David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive. Also in the top 10 was Wong Kar-wai‘s In the Mood For Love and Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life, which made my personal ballot (seen at the bottom of the page).

In terms of the years with the most selections, 2012 and 2013 each had 9, while Wes Anderson, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Christopher Nolan, the Coens, Michael Haneke, and »

7 July 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that James Badge Dale has signed on for the lead role in 20th Century Fox's upcoming film adaptation of Cullen Bunn & Vanessa Del Rey's graphic novel The Empty Man.

Rumour: Sony planning Silver Sable movie

25 June 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you some comments from Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, who stated that Sony plans to build a “whole Spider-Man universe” alongside the upcoming Spidey reboot which the studio is co-producing with Marvel Studios.

Well, it’s only taken a few hours for us to get our first rumour as to what that universe might entail, with Jeff Sneider claiming on Popcorn Talk that Sony is talking to screenwriter Abi Morgan (Shame) about scripting a Silver Sable movie. There’s also talk that Eli Roth (Knock Knock) could be in contention for the director’s chair.

First debuting in The Amazing Spider-Man #265 (hence the reason she’s part of the Spidey rights package), Silver Sable is the leader of the Wild Pack, a mecenary team who track down war criminals. The character was previously rumoured to be part of Sony’s female-led spinoff from The Amazing Spider-Man, »

Rumors of a 'Spider-man' Movie Universe Not Dead -- Silver Sable Film in the Works?

24 June 2016 7:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few years ago, Sony gave the Spider-man universe the good ol' college try with The Amazing Spider-man 2. In that film, they set up what they'd hoped would be a Sinister Six film, which would've pre-empted DC in the whole "bad guys as leads" deal. Now that Spider-Man has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one would expect that Sony Pictures would abandon creating their own little universe. No such luck.

According to Jeff Sneider on Popcorn Talk's "Meet the Movie Press," a Silver Sable project, which was first revealed during the Sony Leaks a couple years back, is still in the works, and Sony has turned to Shame and Suffragette screenwriter Abi Morgan to make it a reality. The character, for those unfamiliar, is an anti-hero and mercenary very much in the vein of Black Widow. She would apparently exist within the current Spider-man universe, and by proxy, the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

Sony Keen On Spidey Spin-Off "Silver Sable"?

24 June 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

As we've heard that even with the Marvel deal in place, Sony Pictures is still intent on developing an onscreen "Spidey-verse" featuring supporting characters from the comics.

Now, Meet the Movie Press has heard about one potential Marvel antihero who might be a part of that - Silver Sable. News of this potential first hit back during the Sony hack in late 2014, and The Wrap editor Jeff Sneider reportedly says on the podcast that Sony still wants to move forward with a Silver Sable movie.

In fact, it is indicated that "Shame" scribe and "The Hour" creator Abi Morgan is in talks to potentially pen the script. In the comics, Silver Sable is a mercenary (without superpowers) who has been both an ally and enemy of Spider-Man and several other characters.

No other details are provided. It's still early days though with Sony likely waiting to see how audiences react »

Rumor: Sony Planning A Silver Sable Movie With The Invisible Woman Screenwriter Abi Morgan

24 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This was first mentioned in those infamous Sony email leaks, and now rumor has it that the studio is making moves again. On this week's episode of Meet The Movie Press, former The Wrap editor Jeff Sneider says he's heard that Sony still want to move forward with a Silver Sable movie, and are talking with screenwriter Abi Morgan (Shame, The Hour, The Invisible Woman,The Iron Lady) with a view to her penning the script. Silver Sable is a marvel Comics antihero/mercenary who has been both an ally and enemy of Spider-Man and several other characters. She has no actual superpowers, so it might be the case that Sony is interested in developing a Punisher-like female-led comic book movie that would eventually crossover with the rebooted Spider-Man/Marvel universe.

The Furniture: Joy's Emerald City of Home Shopping

9 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber on Joy, now available on DVD and Bluray

It seems impossible that production designer Judy Becker has only received a single Oscar nomination, if not supremely unfair as well. At the very least, she should have snagged a second nomination for Carol. Her resume includes such diverse triumphs as We Need to Talk About Kevin, Brokeback Mountain, Shame and I’m Not There, as well as a neat early credit as a set dresser on Spike Lee’s Malcolm X. And so it seems totally appropriate that Becker is the first production designer to merit a repeat appearance in 'The Furniture'.

Becker’s most fruitful collaboration has been with David O. Russell. She's worked on every one of his features since The Fighter and she earned her lone Oscar nomination for American Hustle. Her sets for Joy, particularly »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

5 May 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

For no reason whatsoever that's what we're blogging at this moment! (Just humor me, okay? My back is in spasming pain.)

1865 - The Thirteenth Amendment was ratified, abolishing slavery in the U.S. but 151 years later the topic is still on everyone's minds: see TV's Underground (any of you watching this?), the exciting news about Harriet Tubman on the $20 and two new biopics about her in the works, plus recent and current Best Picture types (Lincoln, 12 Years a Slave and possibly Birth of a Nation) 

1891 - Carnegie Hall (then named Music Hall) opened in NYC so that one day "Judy! Judy! Judy!" could be recorded for posterity

1914 - Movie star Tyrone Power was born and we still don't have a biopic 102 years later even though Zac Efron would be perfect in the role

1927 - Pat Carroll is born so that 62 years later we might enjoy the genius of her voice »

Lukewarm off the Presses: Hamilton, Banks, Anastasia, Cloak & Dagger. Plus Tony Buzz!

20 April 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel, back from the Nashville Film Festival where I juried on the "New Directors" competition. More on that once our awards are announced. Until then, I'm under hush order. But let's catch up on all sorts of movie & entertainment news that happened over the past handful of days that we didn't cover here.

Lin-Manuel Miranda won the Pulitzer for his Broadway smash Hamilton and, giddy squeal, The New Yorker's television goddess Emily Nussbaum won the Pulitzer for criticism. If you haven't read her, you must. She's just wonderful.

• The Golden Globes have clarified their rules for what drama and comedy mean in a probably futile attempt to get campaigns to stop trying to game the system.

• I forgot to mention that teen superhero duo Cloak and Dagger are getting their own TV show (yay! always loved them in the comic books) but Kate Beaton has two words for you "tit »

Daisy Lewellyn, Star of Bravo Reality Series Blood, Sweat & Heels, Dead at 36

8 April 2016 10:49 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Daisy Lewellyn, a former magazine editor and star of the Bravo reality series Blood, Sweat & Heels, died Friday after a multi-year battle with bile duct cancer. She was 36.

Lewellyn shared her diagnosis with the rare form of cancer during the show’s second season premiere, which aired in March 2015.

“It was kind of shocking,” she told Madame Noir that month. “But also, when I was diagnosed, I remember some of my immediate thoughts being like, ‘Well, you know what? I’m not afraid to die,'” she told the site. “It wasn’t like I wanted to die, and it »

Steve McQueen to Shoot Gillian Flynn-Scripted Drama ‘Widows’ This Fall

8 April 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was just earlier this week, with the arrival of his new 70mm-shot short film, that we wondered when Steve McQueen would decide what his follow-up to 12 Years a Slave would be. With HBO deciding not to move forward with his series Codes of Conduct, he was developing both a Paul Robeson biopic and an adaptation of the crime drama Widows. It looks like he’s moving ahead with the latter as we have an update on the production.

Over at My Entertainment World, the preeminent source for news on when productions are scheduled, they’ve noted a September 2016 start for shooting on Widows, confirming it will, in fact, be McQueen’s next project. Backed by New Regency, the Shame director co-wrote the screenplay Gone Girl‘s Gillian Flynn. It’ll be based on the British series which aired its first, six-episode season in 1983, followed by two additional runs, first »
