    My Favorite Films Of 2011 - Rodrigo Perez

    Topping my list of 2011’s #1stworldproblems was making a top 10 list. Such is the difficult life of having to see movies for free and then attempt to express something insightful about them. I have the same issue every year: feeling zero motivation to write a top 10 list and then of course, al...

    Ten Things We Learned From Our Comments Section In 2011

    Now's the time when we turn the tables to show a little appreciation for our readers and commenters. Yes, we do what we do because we love writing about film, but getting feedback from our readers makes it all the more fun. And sometimes terrifying. It's not a one-way street, you see; we lea...

    The Playlist's Complete 2011 Year-End Coverage

    Well, here we are: New Year's Eve. The end of 365 days of movie madness. Whatever your plans for NYE are – running errands for Michelle Pfeiffer, getting stuck in a lift with Ashton Kutcher, hours of sustained therapy to recover from seeing the film "New Year's Eve" – w...

    The Year In Review, Part Two: The Notable Highlights & Lowlights Of July-December 2011

    In trying to understand the year, you've got to look back, recap it and understand its individual touchstone moments, and see how it adds up and affects the whole. Or so they tell us anyhow. You've seen our round-up of all the top news from the first six months of 2011. Now; part two, with a...

    My Favorite Films Of 2011: Kevin Jagernauth

    The annual top ten list is pretty much an exercise in futility to some degree. With a race to cram in as many movies as possible as the clock on the year winds down (and let it be said, I didn't get to see everything I would have wanted to) combined with the added duty of then ranking them, it&#...

    The Most Profitable Movies Of 2011 & More Poor Expenditures

    Being a Hollywood executive is like being a gambler. Coming home with $2000 in your pocket is pretty impressive, and some execs would happily brag about such a thing. But few like to openly discuss the fact they left the house with $4000.

    2011 By The Numbers: The Year In Box-Office Flops

    No one likes to celebrate flops. No, really. OK, maybe when an arrogant, mouthy producer or star delivers a turd that had it coming, or some awful franchise finally stumbles, but especially in the latter case, when does that ever happen?

    The Year In Review, Part One -- The Notable Highlights & Lowlights Of January-June 2011

    Well, with twelve months basically in the can, it’s time to put the year to bed, and hopefully, into a little perspective. 2011 was, well, just another year in movies, and that's not to say it was an uninteresting year, it's just that while things are evolving, and not always for the better, Hollywo...

    2011: The Year In 3D

    If there is a single cinematic subject that seems to unite commenters, bloggers, filmmakers, distributors and exhibitors in vehemence, it has to be the rise/fall of the exciting new format/gimmicky fad that is the post-“Avatar” 3D film. However, rather frustratingly if you’re, say, researching an ar...

    My Favorite Films Of 2011: Oliver Lyttelton

    I'd have called you a liar if you'd said this six months ago, but 2011 turned out to be a pretty strong year for cinema. Indeed, whereas I've had to make up the numbers more than once in recent years, this time around, I've actually expanded it to fifteen to include everything I real...
