    Weekend Box Office: 'True Grit,' 'Fockers' Defeat Nicolas Cage's Sleepytime Witch Adventure

    The deathmatch of 2010’s holiday season has spilled into the New Year, with “True Grit” and “Little Fockers” matching wits for the top spot at the box office. As projected, the Coen Brothers' western finally surpassed the lowest-common-denominator sequel, but it remains close, and it’s hard to forec...

    My Favorite Films Of 2010: Drew Taylor

    2010 was a year which initially seemed quite bleak and like all things over-emphasized for dramatic effect, picked up drastically before everything was said and done. Thematically, the most arresting films investigated the line between imagination and reality, from Leonardo DiCaprio battling his very literal demons in a pair of dreamworld thrillers ("Inception," which charted here, and Martin Scorsese's gorgeous trifle "Shutter Island," which did not) to Natalie Portman's Grand Guignol psychological breakdown in "Black Swan," to Woody's self-delusion in "Toy Story 3" and Scott Pilgrim's videogame-enhanced brawling in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the Wo...

    No Surprises In 2011 Producers Guild Award Nominations; 'The Town' Becoming An Oscar Contender?

    Yawn, another random awards ceremony from yet another industry group, right? Guess again. Last year, when the Academy opened up the Best Picture field to ten nominees, so did the The Producers Guild of America, and nine out of their ten nominees ended up getting Oscar nods as well. So if you're look...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Fockers' Shows 'True Grit', Outduels Cowboys (But Not For Long)

    2010 ended with a whimper with most studio execs facing an uncertain 2011, as the year closed with eight consecutive weekends of box office earning lower than its 2009 counterpart despite five major 3D releases goosing prices. Of course, 3D is a gimmick, but it’s foolish to consider that each of those five films were relative underperformers due to disinterest in the format when even the most ardent fan must admit to subpar product. Of course, the industry is always looking for a scapegoat when the answer is clearly, “terrible movies are being made and should not be,” so the disappearance of 3D (not likely) will happen before a sudden spike i...

    With a team stretching and reaching around the world with editors and writers in the United States, Canada, UK, Australia and beyond, getting a consensus on the top ten films of the year from the entire Playlist team is pretty much impossible. Not everyone has had a chance to see the majority of the...

    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.

    The Best Scores & Soundtracks of 2010

    While 2009 seemed to burst at the seams with numerous ace soundtracks -- largely thanks to new films from Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Jim Jarmusch, Greg Mottola and Quentin Tarantino -- unless you were a “Twilight” fan, pickings were a lot slimmer this year for well curated songs in films (though, as you’ll see, there were some definite standouts). However, as if to compensate, composers stepped it up considerably with old reliables like Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, Carter Burwell and Michael Giacchino delivering the goods while left field surprises like Daft Punk and Trent Reznor shook up the stodgy old boys club with compelling, highly origin...

    Weekend Box Office: Audiences Say 'Fock' Off To 'Little Fockers,' 'Gulliver's Travels'

    Every once in awhile, we look at the numbers and hope, pray that the weekend is emblematic of an attitude amongst the public. They’ve had enough, we predict, and moviegoers are no longer going to accept subpar product. This winter has led to that assumption being made repeatedly, as audiences have r...

    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'...
