    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...

    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...

    Snubs, Stupidities, Surprises & A Few Delights From The 2010 Golden Globe Nominations

    'True Grit' & 'Another Year' Totally Shut Out, '127 Hours' Fails To Score Directing Or Best Drama NodsOnly in the bizarro world of the Hollywood Foreign Press does "The Tourist" earn a Best Picture nomination and Danny Boyle's "127 Hours" go empty-handed. Granted, the Depp/Jolie pic scored a nod in ...

    Weekend Box Office: 2010 Ending With A Whimper As 'Narnia' Fades, 'Black Swan' Rises

    The winter box office is proving to be a bummer for the major studios. A year after “Avatar” ran the table, allowing “The Blind Side,” "Sherlock Holmes" and “Alvin And The Chipmunks” to pick up the scraps on the way to $200 million domestic totals each, audiences have been rejecting the winter 2010 ...

    In Theaters: 'The Tourist,' 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,' 'The Fighter'

    After last week's huge post-holiday box office drop, Hollywood will attempt to steer the ship back on course with a couple of high-profile new releases this weekend. Two of the world's biggest movie stars, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, team up for the goofy international espionage thriller "The Tourist," which doesn't have too much competition for the adult dollar this weekend--at least at the multiplex. Fox reignites the 'Narnia' franchise without co-financing from Disney, after the disappointment of "Prince Caspian" with "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." The 3D inflation should help the film do decent numbers, bu...

    Ten Romantic Spy Thrillers

    It's probably escaped your attention, as the film's essentially being buried by all involved, but the Angelina Jolie/Johnny Depp spy flick "The Tourist" hits theaters tomorrow. Early reviews have been poisonous (and we certainly were not impressed) but it's not entirely sur...

    Review: 'The Tourist' Is Not Worth Getting Out Your Passport For

    From the very first shot of the film, director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck makes it evident that "The Tourist" will attempt to be flashy, frothy entertainment. An impeccably dressed police captain climbs into the back of a van with three more impeccably dressed officers, bringing them a tray of espresso, in some pretty fabulous looking takeout cups (no grimy We Are Happy To Serve You style cups for these guys). It's a minor detail, but the scene is indicative of the film as a whole. More often choosing fabulous locations, set design and attire over realism, charm or originality, "The Tourist" mostly feels like walking through a very expe...

    Watch: Clip From 'The Tourist' Finds Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp Trading Glamorous Quips

    December is going to be pretty heavy with serious Oscar fare and bloated tentpoles, so we're hoping Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck's "The Tourist" will be a light breezy caper that will provide from relief in the midst of a very busy movie season.
