    The Playlist Staff Pick Their Most Underrated & Overrated Films Of 2011

    One of the pecularities of our site is our insistence on writing in the third personn, something designed to create the impression of a collective, a hive mind, and it's served us fairly well so far. But the realities of this are a little trickier; we're not all programmed the same way, and ...

    Best Films of 2011

    If there were ever a year to be wimpy and declare a tie, this would have been it: choosing between my Number 1 and Number 2 films was just silly. One is big, the other smaller; both are ambitious and perfectly made, but in wildly different ways. I adore them both.

    'The Help' & 'The Artist' Lead The Field At Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

    In the seventeen years that they've been running for, the annual Screen Actors' Guild Awards have proven to be a pretty reliable precursor for the acting categories at the Academy Awards. And why shouldn't they? With the actors who nominate their peers for the Oscars overwhelmingly being...

    Awards Mania As 'The Artist,' 'The Tree Of Life' & 'The Descendants' Earn Top Critic Organization Honors

    Sunday was a major day for Oscar prognosticators, as a number of critics organizations went live with their end-of-2011 honors. Some films gained support, and some lost quite a bit of steam, but for those of you who look at the whole thing like a horse race, there was a lot of movement amongst a thi...

    'Midnight In Paris' To Get Wide Re-Release On August 26th: The First Step In Sony's Oscar Strategy?

    Plus Third 'Diary Of A Wimpy Kid' Film Hits On August 3rd, 2012 A new Woody Allen film tends to come with lowered expectations these days. Knocking one out one a year, as he does, means there's rarely fevered excitement for the films: instead, mild curiosity as to who he's cast this time out, the inevitable scouring of reviews to see which critics have called it "a return to form," and keeping your fingers crossed that it's at least better than "Cassandra's Dream." So the surprise success of "Midnight In Paris" has become one of the biggest stories of the year: the film picked up rave reviews when it bowed at Cannes, and has now taken $50 mil...

    The Best Films Of 2011...So Far

    Well, today is the first day of summer, more or less the midpoint of the year, and looking back over the the first six months of 2011, it’s definitely been a bit more of a scattershot movie year compared to the arthouse heavy start of 2010. We'll be honest, compiling this list wasn't exactly easy, the year has been uneven so far, but that said, it's certainly not without highlights: Terrence Malick finally delivered his long awaited film, Woody Allen flexed some of the old magic we love him for, and Michael Winterbottom found life and heart from a familiar comic pairing, while Joe Wright moved completely in a new, exciting direction. Over at ...

    Weekend Box-Office: Is 'Green Lantern' The End Of The Superhero Gravy Train?

    Perspective is necessary. $53 million is a whole lotta money. $53 million could buy several houses, it could feed many people, it could save lives. $53 million is also a pretty good opening for a somewhat higher-budgeted film, provided advertising isn’t through the roof and there aren’t a massive am...
