Top Ten Worst Movies of 2011 - Part Two: The List

30 December 2011 8:08 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

 

Let's pile on one last time and let that be the end of it as I now present my personal top ten list of the Worst Movies of 2011. As I noted in Part One yesterday, I didn't see all of the films many are calling the worst of the year, films such as Jack and Jill, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, I Don't Know How She Does It, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Beastly and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star. I did, however, see my fair share of duds and of those I saw, these are the ten that top that list. If you missed Part One, that's where I essentially list my Dishonorable Mentions and I will link to it again at the end of this piece. For now, let's dive into the sewer and see what we find amidst the sludge. 10. Hobo with a Shotgun »

Top Ten Worst Movies of 2011 - Part One: The Fringe Candidates

29 December 2011 9:18 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

 

I like doing my look back at the worst of the year before exploring the best, that way we get the negative stuff out of the way and we can focus on the more positive aspects of the year after that. Therefore, today I bring you Part One of what I believe to be the absolute worst of 2011 when it comes to cinematic offerings with Part Two arriving tomorrow where I'll rattle off the final top ten. Today we'll be getting into my fringe candidates. Films I wouldn't ever want to watch again and yet they were able to avoid finding themselves on my list of the worst of the year, which is really saying something about my top ten considering I mention about 18 films in this article alone. To begin, call them the Dishonorable Mentions or whatever floats your boat, but here are ten films I didn't have enough »

"Worst" of 2011. A Quick Purge

28 December 2011 12:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

year in review part whichever

I use the term "worst" loosely as I am generally not paid to see the obviously terrible films that open all year round. Plus, I'm not feeling the negativity this year. Or, rather, I'm trying not to feel it. With Bridesmaids and Melancholia both speaking so eloquently on the subject of depression this year like some perfect if unlikely double feature (more on that soon) why should I wallow in my own? No, 2011 was a good year for cinema. So here is a very quick purge of the things that momentarily led me to believe otherwise. 

Hell's Multiplex

Hell's multiplex has noisy audiences, crying babies, constant texting, and 50 million miniature screens showing only 50 movies, a million microscopic screens for each sorry movie! All of them requiring 3D glasses... even the ones in 2D. I wisely avoided the films I thought might play there -- if »

'Mars Needs Moms' tops box office flops of 2011

28 December 2011 10:11 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

There have been some serious stinkers at the box office this year. Strangely, some of them were the most highly anticipated films of 2011. "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" may not be on the list, but we're sure you were thinking of it. After months of anticipation and the book it was based on selling like hot cakes, the film has been a bit of a dismal flop. So what was on the list from THR?

"Green Lantern" was probably one of the most hyped films of the year, from the footage shown at the San Diego Comic Con in 2010 to the zillion fast food tie-ins to the photos of the CGI suit. Once the film was released, however, fans didn't flock to see the glowing green aliens. The film made $219.9 million, but its budget was $200 million. Maybe next time we make the suit out of spandex and save a little cash? »

Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoo"

28 December 2011 5:15 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Big gestures are common currency in Cameron Crowe country," begins Vadim Rizov at GreenCine Daily, and that's the gist, too, of Sam Adams's piece for Slate: "He's made bad movies, but never a bad trailer." Vadim: "John Cusack holding a boombox over his head in Say Anything..., Jerry Maguire's much-quoted romantic highlights ('You had me at hello'), an unironically lovestruck-and-desperate run alongside a moving bus in Almost Famous. Crowe openly states his method in We Bought a Zoo: 'All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage,' dad Benjamin Mee (Matt Damon) tells lovestruck son Dylan (Colin Ford). 'And I promise you, something great will come of it.' This is both a baldly stated stab at future quotability and a declaration of Crowe's full investment: every time his characters do something outsized and cornball, he's the one hoping a great moment rather than a fiasco will emerge from it. »

Christina Hendricks in Talks to Join Elle Fanning in Sally Potter’s ‘Bomb’

27 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Although Christina Hendricks has played modern or even futuristic [2] characters throughout her career, there's no question that she's best known for her portrayal of '60s office manager Joan Harris (née Holloway) on Mad Men. Perhaps that success is why she's in talks to return to the era for Sally Potter's period film Bomb, where she'll star alongside Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, and Alice Englert. Annette Bening is said to be circling a role in the project as well. More details after the jump. The Daily Mail [3] broke the news of Hendricks' casting earlier this week. Potter's film centers around two teenage rebels involved with the anti-nuclear movement in 1960s London, against the backdrop of the Cold War and the sexual revolution. Fanning will star as Ginger, the brainier one of the two girls, while Englert (daughter of director Jane Campion) is signed on to play boy-crazy Rosa. Nivola »

Green Lantern And Cowboys & Aliens Among 2011's Biggest Box Office Flops

26 December 2011 1:24 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter (via IGN Movies) has released the following list as a part of their "THR Year In Review". Industry analysts have revealed that this year has seen a 4% drop in domestic revenue at the box office, and as the site points out, even if a studio makes back its production budget it still splits grosses with theater owners and marketing costs. Here are their top 15 movies which failed to make an impact after being released in 2011. Mars Needs Moms - Budget: $150M; Global Gross: $39M Sucker Punch - Budget: $82M; Global Gross: $89.8M Arthur - Budget: $40M; Global Gross: $45.7M Green Lantern - Budget: $200M; Global Gross: $219.9M Cowboys & Aliens - Budget: $163M; Global Gross: $178.8M Glee: The 3D Concert Movie - Budget: $9M; Global Gross: $18.7M Conan the Barbarian - Budget: $90M; Global Gross: $48.8M I Don't Know How She Does It - Budget: $24M; »

Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson/We Bought A Zoo Disappoints, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Passable: Box Office

25 December 2011 9:10 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Matt Damon, We Bought a Zoo Tom Cruise/Jeremy Renner/Paula Patton/Mission: Impossible 4 Easily Tops; Steven Spielberg/Jeremy Irvine/War Horse Overperforming?: Box Office Though definitely trailing Tom Cruise/Jeremy Renner/Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol and Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr/Jude Law's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, the David Fincher-directed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake earned only about $300,000 less than Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked in North America this weekend. As per studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, Fincher's $90-million thriller starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig took in $13 million at 2,914 sites, averaging a so-so $4,461 per theater. Its total to date is $21.4 million. In addition to Craig, who hasn't been much of a box-office draw (Cowboys & Aliens, Dream House) when not playing James Bond, and Golden Globe nominee Mara, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo features Christopher Plummer, »

Matt Damon/We Bought A Zoo Weak, Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson/Breaking Dawn Top-Ten Sixth Weekend?: Box Office

24 December 2011 2:45 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Patrick Fugit, Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, We Bought a Zoo David Fincher/Rooney Mara/Daniel Craig's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to Surpass Swedish Original's Total Gross Over One Weekend: Box Office Despite the presence of Matt Damon, one of the most likable actors around, and former Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson, on Friday, Dec. 23, the kiddie-oriented We Bought a Zoo brought in a mere $3 million, landing at no. 6 on the North American box-office chart according to early, rough estimates found at both The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline.com. Directed by Cameron Crowe, who has been luckier with Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky), and distributed by 20th Century Fox, We Bought a Zoo is expected to gross less than $8 million at 3,117 locations over the three-day weekend.

Scores for 'Drive' and 'Attack the Block' aren't Eligible for an Oscar

23 December 2011 9:20 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was actually beginning to believe Cliff Martinez's score for Drive may actually have a shot with all the love it has received in the precursor awards, but last night the Academy announced the list of 97 scores eligible for Best Original Score at the 2012 Oscars and, oops, what do you know, both Drive and Attack the Block didn't make the cut. The only other score I had on my current list of predictions for the category to not make the cut was Howard Shore's music for David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method. Why? Well, I would assume somewhere inside there the rules for requirement weren't met. As per the Academy, "To be eligible, the original score must be a substantial body of music that serves as original dramatic underscoring, and must be written specifically for the motion picture by the submitting composer. Scores diluted by the use of »

The National, Jonsi, Zooey Deschanel Or Uh, Justin Bieber Could Win An Oscar For Best Original Song

20 December 2011 7:30 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

And then there were...39. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Monday the songs that are eligible to compete for Best Original Song at the Oscars, and as you might guess, it's a pretty random assortment of songs. But for those of you holding out hope that the Academy will recognize "I Don't Know How She Does It," keep that flame burning bright. Let's start with the good stuff. In the small category of songs that we can actually tolerate, The National , Jonsi and Zooey Deschanel could possibly find themselves rubbing shoulders at the buffet table in February for "Think You Can Wait" (from "Win Win"), "Gathering Stories (from "We Bought A Zoo") and "So Long" (from "Winnie The Pooh"). Though, in reality, this list is probably as far as any of these folks get as the voters tend to (mostly) favor established vets and easy to digest songs. »

39 Original Songs Fight for Oscar Glory! Is Your Favorite on the List?

19 December 2011 2:38 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has announced the thirty-nine songs eligible for nominations in the Original Song category.

How do the songs qualify? In order to be eligible, "a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film. A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits." Hence, we hear most of the original songs during the first part of the closing credits.

So here's what's coming up next: On Thursday, January 5, the voting members of the Music Branch will see clips featuring each song, in random order. Right after the screenings, members will vote using a point system of voting. The average score is 8.25 and if there's no song that achieved that score, then there will »

Madonna Out, Elton John In: Best Song Contenders Oscar 2012

19 December 2011 2:32 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez provide voices for tropical birds in Carlos Saldanha's Rio

Thirty-nine songs from eligible movies are in the running for nominations in the Academy Awards' Best Original Song category for the 2012 Oscars. Madonna's Golden Globe-nominated "Masterpiece" from W.E. isn't to be found on the longlist, but Elton John is on there for Gnomeo and Juliet's "Hello Hello." As usual, kiddie flicks dominate the list, with Rio, Happy Feet Two, Winnie the Pooh, Gnomeo & Juliet, and The Muppets featuring multiple contenders.

The original songs and their respective movies are listed below in alphabetical order by film and song title. Note that several of the songs are not in English, e.g., Sohan Roy's thriller DAM999 is in Hindi and Malayalam, the biographical documentary José and Pilar's "Já Não Estar" is in Portuguese, and "Coeur Volant," from Martin Scorsese's Hugo, is in French. »

Academy Announces 39 Songs Vying for 2012's Best Original Song Oscar

19 December 2011 1:14 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Your guess is as good as mine in this category as I have no idea what to expect from this category. If I were to go by nominees listed for the Critics Choice and Golden Globe Awards I would say Elton John's "Hello Hello" from Gnomeo and Juliet and Mary J. Blige's "The Living Proof" from The Help are two that look to be front-runners as both were recognized by both orgs, but even then, who knows? You will notice Madonna's song "Masterpiece" from W.E. is not included as it doesn't conform to the Academy's rules for the category, which state a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film. A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits. »

Sarah Jessica Parker: "Kids can distract you from your relationship"

5 December 2011 6:43 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sarah Jessica Parker has confessed that having children has made her marriage to husband Matthew Broderick more difficult at times. The I Don't Know How She Does It star, who is mother to 8-year-old son James Wilkie and 2-year-old twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta, revealed that being a parent has forced her to set more time aside for her relationship with Broderick. "Kids can really distract you from your relationship," Parker explained in a new interview with The Daily Telegraph. "Maybe in good ways and bad ways. It's important to have all eyes on all parts of the relationship." However, Parker went on to say that while the couple have their share of issues, they always manage to pull through as they keep their eyes on (more) »

In this week's "Even More" section there is a link to a Tom Cruise Blu-ray Collection, which includes Collateral, Days of Thunder, Minority Report, Top Gun and War of the Worlds for only $34.99. It's a good price and worth a look either for you or perhaps as a Christmas present for someone else. However, until November 17 you can buy it at Fry's for only $19.99! Get on it!

Also, I have two Criterion titles I'm recommending this week, but instead of using the Buy Now links next to each you may want to head over to Barnes and Noble where their 50% off sale is still on for I believe another week. Unless I am mistaken it ends on November 21. So, get to shopping!
