The year was 2010 and it was not as kind to movies as previous years have been. With that being said, Roger Ebert was able to pull up his strength to create his top 10 favorite films of 2010 while Edgar Write was asked by GQ to create a top 5. You can see their lists after the jump!
Who is Tom Shadyac you might ask? Well Tom Shadyac has been in director’s chair for one of the most recognizable comedic libraries of the current era (Ace Venture: Pet Detective; The Nutty Professor; Bruce Almighty; Liar, Liar; Patch Adams). But after a near-death experience Tom Shadyac gave away all of his money and decided to go on an adventure to explore the human condition and how we can improve the world. With a crew of four cameramen, Tom Shadyac embarked on a journey to ask some of the most brilliant minds throughout the world how we can change for the better. You can get inspired by the trailer after the jump and see the film in February when it is released.
Edmund Earle can be thanked for this parody, that has no association to Warner Brothers, which captures the dark essence between the relationship of Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. Paul Scheer can also be thanked for discovering this gem, which he tweeted a few weeks ago. Yes, I know how old this entry is, I’ve been lazy. I’m actually surprised it is still available to watch. You can check out the gritty Yogi Bear alternative ending after the jump!
Franchise nostalgia start your engines. Pirates of the Caribbean has not seen a movie since 2007 and many believed that the franchise would never see another movie with all of the mixed emotions of the second and third movies. I, myself, find them easily acceptable, but nothing too amazing praise about. The first one will always hold a place in my heart. But let’s talk about this teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which you can watch after the jump and look for the movie May 20, 2011! [Update 1/2: I just nabbed over 150 screenshots of the trailer too!]
Tis the end of the year and another round of movie montage videos are under way, but this particular video, created by Gen Ip, has really stepped up the bar and I believe it is one of the best that I’ve ever seen. She has taken 270 movies from 2010 (practically 99% of the theatrical releases) and integrated them into a six minute video. You can check out Gen’s YouTube channel where you can find other little gems of hers. After the jump check out the remarkable montage video and snippets from the ‘making of’ interview from David Chen of /Film.
No, this video is not about Ke$ha, thankfully. What this video is is a montage of a lot of movies where characters utilize the always casual “blah blah blah” within their dialogue. Watch it after the break.
Josh Duhamel, Katie Holmes, and Blair Underwood announced the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 25 categories and their nominees for the 68th Annual Golden Globes on December 14 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. This news comes late, but hey, I was
lazy busy. Most of these don’t come as too much of a shock other than The Tourist, which I never would have guessed was a Comedy or Musical. Go figure. I won’t get into the nitty gritty about how everyone tosses out the HFPA’s opinion (Avatar over the Hurt Locker), but I can accept the ceremony for its entertainment value and nothing further.
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will premier live Sunday, January 16, 2011 on NBC from 8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel hosted again by Ricky Gervais who was most certainly drunk last year. You can catch the nominees after the break.
If you have not had the benefit to witness Black Swan yet, then you are missing out on one of the best films of the year. Before its wide release, the people at The Soundworks Collection released an eight minute featurette dedicated the sound design of Black Swan. Sound designer Craig Henighan was interviewed for the feature and one would suspect that you would find this on the special features when it is released on DVD. It is an interested featurette with a bit of easter eggs that you may have unheard while watching the film. Slight spoilers are lie ahead if you dare to watch the video. Catch it after the jump!
Take Me Home Tonight explores the adventure of youth looking for something more in life, something that is missing, and something that can be solved within one night of tom foolery. Seen many times before (I Love You, Beth Cooper; Can’t Hardly Wait; Hot Tub Time Machine), this youth comedy doesn’t really change the formula or attempt at being different. Outrageous antics ensue, relatives/friends try to push the antagonist forward to get his love, and something life altering happens within a span of one night. I’m not impressed with this trailer and I feel sorry for the pretty decent cast of Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, MichelleTrachtenberg, Michael Biehn, Chris Pratt, Lucy Punch, Michael Ian Black, and Demetri Martin. Watch the trailer after the jump to see for yourself.
