    Drew Taylor's Favorite Films Of 2011

    2011 was undoubtedly the year of Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life." It just wasn't for me. After winning the Palme d'Or on the same day that I saw the movie, I was left feeling baffled. Like I had missed something.

    From Bloody Murders To Bridesmaid Speeches: The 25 Best Movie Moments Of 2011

    The great Howard Hawks once famously said that what makes a good film is "three great scenes, and no bad ones." While we'd argue that that's not an absolute hard-and-fast rule, he wasn't far off. With 2011 providing a number of above-average films, there've been plenty of m...

    The Alternate 2011: Who Nearly Directed Or Starred In The Most Notable Movies Of The Year?

    2011 hasn't been too shabby for the movies. But even in a year such as this, there's that niggling feeling of what could have been. With the process of picking a director and casting a film seemingly more public than ever, thanks to rumors leaking and trades running short-list stories, it...

    Audiences Celebrate 'New Year's Eve' Early On The Worst Box Office Weekend Of 2011

    It’s not a surprise to see two of the year’s mildest weekends following each other. It is, however, a bit of a departure to see them at the beginning of December. The top twenty films at the box office brought a cumulative $73.2 million, the worst weekend of 2011. That's right, even worse than last ...

    In Theaters: If You Want To See 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' You'll Need To Call 'The Sitter' For Your 'Young Adult' (Just Don't Stay Out Until 'New Year's Eve')

    This is what I'm talking about! This is the kind of weekend we deserve in December. Some buzzed about prestige pieces, comedies for adults of the slapstick and dark variety, and one giant overstuffed blimp of star exploitation for people who don't actually like movies.

    Tomas Alfredson Hasn't Seen 'Let Me In' Yet But Has No Hard Feelings; Says 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Sequel Needs To Have A Great Idea

    2009’s vampire tale “Let the Right One In,” an adaptation of the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, was the polar opposite of the current vampire craze, a quiet, atmospheric and beautifully shot piece of cinema. Swedish director Tomas Alfredson’s chilling take bears no resemblan...

    Colin Firth signed on for his role in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy long before winning his Oscar for The King’s Speech. Even so, it’s a little jolting to find him in a relatively small role as one of a half-dozen British intelligence agents and possible moles being investigated by G...

    Review: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Is A Remarkable, Quietly Devastating Spy Movie

    The spy genre, is generally speaking, a euphemism for 'action movie' -- look at the explosions, fistfights and car chases of the Bond films, of the 'Mission: Impossible' series, of the 'Bourne' franchise, none of which have much in the way of actual tradecraft. The business o...
