    With a team stretching and reaching around the world with editors and writers in the United States, Canada, UK, Australia and beyond, getting a consensus on the top ten films of the year from the entire Playlist team is pretty much impossible.

    27 Of Our Favorite Onscreen Moments In 2010

    First, we’ll start you off with a warning: there are plenty of plot spoilers within, so if you haven’t seen the movies on this list you might want to do yourself a favor and watch them first before having some key scenes, and in some cases even the ending, ruined for you.

    The Best Scores & Soundtracks of 2010

    While 2009 seemed to burst at the seams with numerous ace soundtracks -- largely thanks to new films from Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Jim Jarmusch, Greg Mottola and Quentin Tarantino -- unless you were a “Twilight” fan, pickings were a lot slimmer this year for well curated songs in films (though, as you’ll see, there were some definite standouts). However, as if to compensate, composers stepped it up considerably with old reliables like Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, Carter Burwell and Michael Giacchino delivering the goods while left field surprises like Daft Punk and Trent Reznor shook up the stodgy old boys club with compelling, highly origin...

    Academy Disqualifies Scores For 'Black Swan,' 'True Grit' and Others From Oscar Consideration

    The trouble with the Academy awards, and indeed in putting too much stock in them, is that you're relying on the decisions being made by a relatively small, aging group of people. In many ways, things are improving -- Academy membership is getting younger, and it's starting to show: we can't imagine...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Tron' Saves Face, 'How Do You Know' Doesn't Get To Know Anyone

    Are you ready for another “Avatar” experience? No? Well, okay, guess that’s fine. “Tron: Legacy” opened to the same midnight numbers as the James Cameron epic, but failed to equal that film’s general attendance or gross in its first weekend. 'Tron' has been pushed for a couple of years now as a near...

    The Broadcast Film Critics Association Fetes 'Black Swan' With A Record Twelve Nominations

    Here's why awards prognostication is total crapshoot. This past weekend, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Society Of Film Critics all collectively creamed over David Fincher's "The Social Network" and of course, pundits used that as evidence t...

    International Poster & Trailer For 'Black Swan' Dazzles

    Yes, we know, "Black Swan" has already opened but unless you were in one of the 19 cities that kicked off its debut weekend (it expands to 70 screens this weekend), you're most likely going to have to wait until Christmas when the film opens wide in 1000 theaters. And if you're overseas, you'll be w...

    25 Iconic Dance Sequences In Film

    Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" hits theaters today, and it's easily one of the very best films of the year, and seemingly a culmination of everything that the director's been working towards for years. It's also a rarity, in that it's a serious film about dance -- ...

    Exclusive: Darren Aronofsky Talks Natalie Portman's "Terrors & Metamorphosis" In 'Black Swan'

    Filmmaker Says Ballet Horror Was 10 Years In The Making; Is Glad His Old Boxing Project 'The Fighter' Is In Good Hands It's more than appropriate that when we sat down to chat with Darren Aronofsky, director of this week's flat-out brilliant ballet world thriller "Black Swan," we would do so under a giant framed photograph of Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Vincent Price, and John Carradine. The icons of horror seemed to be giving Aronofsky their blessing, and on the eve of his own super-spooky movie, seemed to be saying: "Welcome to the club." He's in good company. And "Black Swan"...
