After highlighting the best films of the year thus far, it’s time to turn our attention to the fall. While Venice and Telluride will get things going, the biggest seasonal event is easily the Toronto International Film Festival.

Take This Opportunity to See Robert Downey Jr. Out of His Iron Man Suit

It's been a few years since we've seen Robert Downey Jr. lead a movie out of his Iron Man suit, and the first trailer for The Judge is a refreshing change of pace. He stars as Hank Palmer, a skilled lawyer who returns home after his mother's death only to encounter his estranged father (Robert Duvall) is suspected of a murder. Now, he must put his grieving on hold to defend his father, who also happens to be a judge and a pillar of their small community. It's kind of like Garden State, but if Zach Braff were Robert Downey Jr. and Natalie Portman were replaced by a mysterious murder. Leighton Meester, Vincent D'Onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton, Vera Farmiga, Dax Shepard, Melissa Leo, and David Krumholtz round out the impressive cast. The Judge is due out Oct. 10, and you can watch the trailer below. Front Page Image Source: Warner Bros.

Tsr Blog: Nick Allen Recaps Oscar Night, With Points

I can’t decide if last night’s Oscars were a disaster or not. Sure, I laughed my ass off. But at what cost? Was most of the entertainment laughing with the ceremony, or did I find it so enjoyable because it was such a mess?

To settle this debate within myself, I’ve decided to compile a list of last night’s highlights, spanning the entire ceremony, but not in exact order. Then, I’m going to decide what’s positive and what’s negative by indicating a “plus” or a “minus” to a general quality index. It’s a bit like Jeff Bayer’s “Oscar Bowling,” except that it makes no sense at all.

And the winning/losing moments are …

James Franco and Anne Hathaway brought a “young” aspect to the Oscars, but I wouldn’t say it was “hip.” After their hilarious introduction video, the duo hosted

The 10 Sundance 2011 Films with the Best Box-Office Prospects

  • Pajiba
There's a certain fever moviegoers get while they're at the Sundance Film Festival (in the case of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, that's literally so). It feels like the center of the Universe while you're there; we fail to realize that the rest of the world barely cares because "Two and a Half Men" is still on, or the NFL playoffs are in full swing. The Sundance buzz rarely translates outside of Park City. It may feel like the best the year has to offer in film, and when you walk out of certain movies, you may even have the sense that it's going to take the world by storm, that a few of them might part the red sea of Hollywood formula, that America will finally stand up and take notice of something creative and original and bold.

But it never happens. Or, rarely so. Actual box-office hits, even modest ones like Garden State,
