    Quentin Tarantino Regrets Leaving Sofia Coppola's 'Somewhere' Off His Fave-Of-2010 List

    When Quentin Tarantino dropped his list of favorite movies of 2010, it raised a lot of questions regarding his choices, which included "Robin Hood" and "Knight & Day" and was topped off by "Toy Story 3." But the biggest omission for most people was Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," a film awarded the Gol...

    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 ...

    In Theaters: 'Little Fockers,' 'True Grit,' 'Gulliver's Travels'

    There are plenty of options for those of you seeking refuge in a dark movie theater from family fights, creepy uncles and the increasingly annoying and endless loop of Christmas carols in every mall across America. But a word of advice? If it has a big budget, stay the hell away. A number of options are hitting multiplexes this week, a couple boasting A-list names as mistletoe to get into your wallet, but they probably aren't worth your time. Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro return for "Little Fockers" which, if the trailers have been anything to go by, is a penis-stabbing comedy of some kind. Meanwhile, Jack Black gets supersized in "Gulliver'...

    Exclusive: Sofia Coppola Talks The Minimalism Of 'Somewhere'

    Sofia Coppola's latest effort, "Somewhere," tells the story of a partied-out action star (played by Stephen Dorff) who hangs out at the chateau marmont, gets laid at will and basically lives a fleeting, empty existence, until he's forced to deal with his daughter (Elle Fanning) full time, and he re...

    Exclusive: Sofia Coppola Says Roman Coppola Is Working On A New Feature-Length Film

    Project Is Under Wraps, But It'll Be His First Feature Since 2001Filmmaker Roman Coppola hasn't made a film since 2001, the weird and wonderful "CQ," his paean to the groovy films of the '60s, perhaps completely influenced by the cheesy/awesome super-thief Mario Bava action-heist film, "Danger: Diabolik." Yes, "CQ" is different. It's a film within a film, and the story of a young director (Jeremy Davies) who moves to Paris to make sci-fi films, but it has similar sensibilities with its purposeful cornball, period-piece effects and it's excellent psychedelic go-go score by the French band Mellow. It's an incredibly underrated film -- Jason Sch...

    London Film Fest '10: 'Somewhere' Is A Shallow Disappointment From An Ossified Sofia Coppola

    We're unashamed fans of Sofia Coppola here. Obviously, she's not great in "The Godfather Part III," but as far as her directing work goes, "The Virgin Suicides" stands as one of the stronger debuts in recent memory, "Lost In Translation," despite the backlash, is still pretty excellent, and even "Ma...
