    The Playlist's Most Anticipated Films Of 2011 - Part 2

    Alright, continuing with our Most Anticipated Films of 2011 series which will roughly be in four parts (unfortunately, character/size limits prevent us from doing one massive feature). Here's part one which we published yesterday. If you're wondering where some of the tentpoles were yesterday -- "X-Men: First Class," "Cowboys And Aliens" and "Sherlock Holmes" -- well, they're here. If you were asking, whether indie-driven auteurs would be represented -- Lynne Ramsay's return with "We Need To Talk About Kevin," Mike Mills' "Beginners" or David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" -- well, they're all here too. The way these lists are lumped toget...

    My Favorite Films Of 2010: Oli Lyttelton

    Once a year, The Playlist team stick their heads above the defensive parapet that is the first-person plural, and put our necks on the line. While there's a certain kinship between all the writers here -- we wouldn't be here if there wasn't -- there's also a real diversity of voices and taste, and w...

    The Playlist's 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2011 - Part 1

    That’s right, 2010 is already in our rear view and we’re looking far, far ahead into 2011. If 2010 was the year of audiences rewarding original, smart blockbusters (“Inception”) and punishing glossy, but empty big-budget tentpoles (“The Tourist,” “Tron: Legacy”) the new year will find studios hoping once again that comic franchises and sequels can bring in the big bucks. No less than five comic-book movies are on the way with “Thor,” “Captain America,” “Green Lantern,” “Green Hornet” and “X-Men: First Class” all swinging into thea...

    My Favorite Films Of 2010: Gabe Toro

    I was pleased to find that, as Playlist writers, we were encouraged to publish our own 10 best lists for 2010. We often have differing opinions, and how could we not? More importantly, we change with the times, particularly through the prism of a year at the movies -- a challenging, cerebral independent film that haunted us one afternoon in June could just be an afterthought as winter approaches, the time spent allowing us to emotionally gravitate in different directions. The themes and ideas behind the films we consume have the power to assist us in recontextualizing, rebuilding our lives and understanding something more about ourselves. The...

    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.

    2010 In Reverse: 7 What-Could-Have-Been Films

    Projects come and projects go. Actors and directors join or spearhead them and then sometimes they leave. Sometimes it's not personal, sometimes it's downright acrimonious. We're not crying over spilled milk or anything, but there were a handful of high profile films in 2010 that started one way, then headed in an entirely different direction. In some cases it was for the better, in some cases for the worse, in some cases it just doesn't make much difference to anyone, but as we were thinking of the bigger news items of 2010, we thought it would be fun to look back on the history of some of the films that finally made their way to the big scr...

    The Most Disappointing & Overrated Films Of 2010

    Contrary to popular belief, we're optimists here at The Playlist. Just as almost every filmmaker goes into a project genuinely wanting it to be the best it can be (“Grown Ups" being a major exception, it would seem), we genuinely hope that every movie released will be worthwhile. Unfortunately, movies are difficult things to make, with any number of things that are liable to go wrong, and more often than not, we come away disappointed. So, if we come across as being cynical when compared to other, more cheerleader-type sites, it's really more a kind of self-preservational realism at work. After all, you can only be disappointed so many times ...

    Read It And Weep: The Worst Films of 2010

    There’s a lot of bad movies released every year. Lots. We are but humans, and we can’t see them all. But someone always does. Sometimes it’s many (“The Twilight Saga”). Sometimes few (“Birdemic: Shock and Terror”). But there’s truly something to be said about the general public’s hunger for art that...
