    Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Scoring David Fincher's 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'

    David Fincher's "The Social Network" has been praised and well, maybe not entirely loved, in many circles, but all seem to be in agreement that the film sounded unlike anything released in 2010, thanks to the pulsating and moody electronic score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

    Review: 'Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune' Makes An Interesting Life Seem Average

They're a mix of indies that we're hoping to have quality performances in them and more traditional action-y, popcorn flicks that could be quality because of the directors or talent involved. You'll just have to read a little deeper to see how we feel about each. In case you missed it, here's part one.“The Cold Light of Day" - Summit - dir.

    Year-End Box Office Wrap 2010: Winners and Losers Chart, Warners Leads Domestic Market Share

    It was feast or famine at the 2010 domestic box office.
