2011 In Review: Mel's Best Films

Now that we got the stinkers out of the way, here are my Best Films of this past year that I paid to see and gladly. Heck I'd have paid for a second and third viewing and I am one broke-ass bitch most of the time. Here they are in no particular order...

2011 In Review: Mel's Worst Films

It's that time of year when we lay out the lists of Bests and Worsts. Here is a list of the films I watched, er, suffered through and consider the stinkers of this year. If you've seen them, my condolences, if not thank the Universe that others took that blow to the cranium for you.

Here they are in no particular order...

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows

I took my nephew and his friend to see Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and it was more than worth the extortion price to get in. I gladly donated a kidney and an unborn child to be named later to settle in for this hellagood thriller. Guy Ritchie, RDJ and Jude Law delivered in spades once again.

This time around we have Sherlock going up against a criminal mastermind that wants to bring about world war so he clean up on the guns, bullets and bombs necessary to fight this armageddon. A little megalomaniacal for late Victorian England, but I bought it. This covert evil genius is none other than Professor James Moriarty, Holmes' archenemy, the Napoleon of Crime as described by Doyle. He is played to sinister perfection by Jared Harris. The air between Holmes and Moriarty whenever they share screen time is charged, the dialogue, knife-blade sharp. The way they match wits is an intellectual Wimbledon final that left me wanting more and more. I didn't want to leave these two, other than to go to Holmes and Watson, who are just electric together. Seriously, RDJ and Law light it up like Chicago at Christmas. I could not get enough of them and yes, I want another SH film right freakin' now.

Immortals: An Uneven Epic

Oh how I was looking forward to Immortals. Tarsem Singh is a visionary director with a breath-taking style that just blows me away. However, I was torn. I loved most of it, but had huge problems with other parts. I'll break this down like a performance review giving you good, bad, layers of a sandwich.

The Muppets: A Most Sensational, Celebrational, Muppetational Film

"It's time to put on makeup. It's time to dress up right..." Ahh, 2011 sure has been the year of going back to Mel's childhood. First, there was Super 8, now, it's The Muppets. Oh my God did I love this show growing up. Pigs in Space, The Swedish Chef, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem band...I loved it all. This movie was bar none the best Muppet movie in a very long time. Hell, it's one of the best movies of this year. Now, maybe that's because I'm looking at it with ye olde rose-colored glasses, but I don't care. Like the song says, I had a Muppetational good time.

Frodo Is A Serial Killer

Remember Sin City and the shock of seeing cute little Frodo, Elijah Wood, as Kevin the Cannibal? Ewwww!!! He was awesomely intense and completely vile. Well, kids, Deadline reports that our dear hobbit will once again appear in a villainous role, this time as a serial killer in Maniac.

Amanda Seyfried Is Deep Throat

All right my peeps, get your minds into the gutter and let the talking begin. Amanda Seyfried has been cast as the infamous porn star, Linda Lovelace, in Ron Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's biopic, Lovelace. There about a million snarky comments coming to mind right now, all of them centering around my friend's reaction. "Oh no, not my innocent and beautiful Amanda." I digress.

The Bad Movie

When was the last time you went to the movies, sat there with your over priced coke and popcorn and thought 'Geez, this movie sucks'. Once, maybe twice....three times? When have you settled down with a DVD and at the end of it felt like 90 minutes of your life has been ripped from your life. If this happens to you often... You might not like this post.
No, this post is dedicated to those bad movies, we all hate to love. The guilty pleasure that is bad dialogue, bad acting and a shoo in for the Razzie Awards. Featuring Hollywood greats, like Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Berkeley and Halle Berry.

The Avengers: First Look

Okay, so I have been dying for this movie because not only is it some of the coolest heroes ever gathered, but it's Joss Freakin Whedon at the helm. A badass director, writer and producer, whose work I worship. Sorry, geek moment! Anyway without further ado here is the trailer for the superhero movie The Avengers, opening in May 2012.

Girl Power Rumored For Thor 2

Oh my God I hope this bit of Hollywood speculation comes true. It seems Marvel Studios wants Patty Jenkins to direct Thor 2. Can I get an Amen and a Hallejulah? Dead Line reports that Marvel is in serious talks with the director, who recently helmed the epic AMC miniseries, The Killing. She is probably best known for directing Charlize Theron to her Oscar as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in 2003's Monster.

RIP Andy Whitfield

Some sad news to report. For those of us who loved the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Andy Whitfield, the sexy title character, lost his battle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma Sunday. He was just 39 years old.

A relative unknown prior to being cast, Andy appeared in all 13 episodes of the wildly successful first season as the Thracian slave. It was a huge success for the Starz network and caused a lot of talk with its graphic violence and sexual situations.

A New Installment For Blade Runner

Oh my God!! I am so excited I had to post this even though I am on a self-imposed hiatus because of a story deadline. Exceptions will be made for wicked cool news, though. One of the definitive sci fi pictures of all time, Blade Runner, is getting a sequel, prequel, oh hell another installment and it will be directed by none other than Ridley Scott himself. Yay!!!

Blasphemy: The Dirty Dancing Remake

Okay, I am about to lose millions of cool points here and reveal a dork soft side of my snarky personality, but I am so mad I could go postal. Lionsgate has announced plans to remake the iconic film Dirty Dancing. This is the movie that made Patrick Swayze a household name. However cheesy and over-the-top you may consider it, it's still a beloved classic and to even think about remaking it is heresy in my book. I don't care that the original choreographer, Kenny Ortega, is on board. He lost any respect from me when he went on to do those godawful High School Musical movies.

First Look: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

Check it out...Another first look to tease us. It's Anne Hathaway as the iconic Catwoman from probably the most anticipated sequel since Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight Rises. Here she is

Captain America: Corn Fed Golden Boy

Maybe I really am the crabby old lady my nephew called me, but I just could not stand this movie. The whole thing had a bland, hokey vibe to it, Little Orphan Annie meets Gomer Pyle, USMC, which is unlike anything Marvel has done before. I first thought it might be trying to recreate some sort of supposed innocence of the time. However, it struck me that the 40’s were not an innocent time. We’d come through WWI, Prohibition, gangster wars and Pearl Harbor. And by 1942-43, the time in which this movie is set, Americans were dying by the thousands on the battlefield. X-Men: First Class did a superior job of blending hero origins with the tensions of the Cold War early 60’s where as this played out as straight up fantasy with no sense of truth. X-Men wove in real events with layered, complex characters. This was Who Framed Roger Rabbit run amok.

Paranormal Activity 3 Teaser Trailer

Ah prequels...It's time once again for yet another installment in the Paranormal Activity franchise. I cannot believe they are doing a third. A prequel to the prequel. What's next? Katie and Kristi as zygotes playing with ghosts in their mother's womb? And from this trailer, it's Bloody freakin' Mary as "the source." Because yeah, we haven't seen this particular ghost in about 8 million other stories.

First Trailer The Amazing Spider-Man

Comic Con is the best source for all things superhero and this time around they've unveiled the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, the reboot of the titanic Marvel franchise helmed by Marc Webb. This looks just wow!

The Amazing Spider-Man drops on July 3, 2012 and stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as George Stacy, Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder/Proto-Goblin, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Conners/The Lizard, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and Sally Field as Aunt May.

This is more of an origin story and delves back into Peter's childhood. We see Campbell Scott as Richard Parker and Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker. I am psyched for this and I thought I would not be because I was initially ticked that they were taking Spider-Man back to his Teeny-bopper dreamboat days. However, from the looks of this, it's dark and edgy like a certain other superhero reboot.

What do you think? Talk to me.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows First Trailer

I am bouncing out of my seat. The exclusive first look trailer for the highly anticipated sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows has finally hit. The game is afoot once more for Holmes and Watson as they find themselves pitted against Professor Moriarty, Holmes' arch enemy.

Joining Robert Downey, Jr., and Jude Law are Stephen Fry, Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris. Fry portrays Mycroft Holmes, the elder, and considerably more stodgy brother of the famous detective. Stephen is having quite a year as he will also be seen as the Master of Laketown in the upcoming Hobbit films. Noomi, fresh from her role as Lisbeth Salander in the wildly popular Millennium trilogy stars as Sim, a fortune teller. In the role of the dastardly Moriarty is Jared Harris from AMC's Mad Men and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Transformers Dark Of the Moon

Okay, so Michael Bay is not my favorite filmmaker. Let's face it, he’s a T & A man whose directing style consists of blow shit up and show some skin. However, this time was a wholly unique experience for me. As the little kid who fantasized that Godzilla would emerge from Lake Michigan and put a Tokyo-sized smack down on my town, this was a cinematic dream come true served up by Bay with giant space robots. This is Mr. Adolescence we’re talking about, so while the destruction was a dream come true, this film is by no means great.

WarGames Gets Reboot

"Shall we play a game?" Those words proved to be the world's most terrifying syllables in the visionary 1983 movie WarGames. As teen hackers David and Jennifer, Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy found a back door into a military computer program thinking only to play games. What they found nearly launched WWIII. The film was directed by John Badham of Saturday Night Fever fame and co-starred Dabney Coleman, Barry Corbin and John Wood.

Bad Teacher: A Salacious, Irreverent Good Time

There are very few comedies on this Earth that crack me up from start to finish. Bad Teacher has joined that select list and takes its place with such films as Caddyshack, Zombieland and The Big Lebowski. Served up raw and dirty, Bad Teacher had me laughing so hard, I know I missed some parts. It is a wild, obscene riot. From the cast to the dialogue to the outrageous situations, I was howling the entire time. And I do not as rule, enjoy comedies all that much. I mean let’s face it, half the time the funniest parts are all in the trailer.

First Look At The Hobbit

Check this out... Here's a first look at some of the production shots from The Hobbit films just released to Entertainment Weekly. My anticipation is building like crazy. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is scheduled to hit theaters on December 14, 2012 while The Hobbit: There and Back Again will follow on December 13, 2013. They are on a 254 day shoot in New Zeland, which is 12 days shy of the Lord of the Rings shoot. And they're only doing 2 movies this time. LOL just 540 days to go for all you Tolkien LOTR geeks out there like me.

Here's Peter Jackson with Martin Freeman as Bilbo. Word is from Jackson that Freeman has the biggest Hobbit feet ever and it's been difficult for him to master the Hobbit walk.

Green Lantern: A Light That Shines, But Not So Very Bright

There are those summer blockbusters that get you all excited, only to let you down like a snapped elevator cable, while there are those that blow all your expectations out of the water. Then there is Green Lantern. This movie falls short of the excitement level, but neither does it really disappoint. It is a good, solid movie with lots of potential that never gets realized.

Super 8 Equals Super Thrilling

Young Joe Lamb wants to spend the summer of 79 hanging out with his friends, making their zombie movie and forgetting the horrific death of his mother. Things are going according to plan until he and his friends witness the derailment of a secret military train. All of a sudden, strange occurrences crop up. All the dogs run away, there are rolling blackouts and more ominously people begin to disappear.

X-Men: First Class : In A Class By Itself

I had been dying to see this film since it had first been announced so I was filled with excitement and more than a hint of trepidation as the Nephew and I filed into the theater. I had been screwed over before when my expectations were so high. Not today, though.

From the opening shot, X-Men: First Class raised the bar and threw down the gauntlet to all other superhero films before and still to come. Matthew Vaughn and crew have delivered a high octane, deeply emotional and provocative movie. There is so much complexity to this film, that at times one almost forgets it’s a superhero flick. It has the feel of great, character-driven drama.

The Hobbit Films Get Release Dates And Titles

At last, at last all you fellow Tolkien LOTR fans out there! We can now rejoice as the release dates of the highly anticipated Hobbit films have been determined along with their official titles.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will drop on December 14, 2012 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again will hit theaters December 13, 2013. Birthday presents just for moi. LOL

Hope we all survive the infamous 2012 Apocalypse and get a chance to see them.

Thor: God of Thunder Rocks My World

Now that the entire planet has reviewed Thor, it's my turn. Thor with his mighty hammer is a childhood favorite, so I did a happy dance when I found out Kenneth Branagh was to direct the live action film. The god of my Shakespearean idolatry, I knew he would do justice to the son of Odin. And I was right. For the first time since I started writing these snarky reviews, I have found a film I really liked. Cue Beethoven's Ode to Joy.

First Look At Dark Knight Rises Villain Bane

Warner Brothers released a first look at Tom Hardy in full gear as the super villain Bane from the new film, The Dark Knight Rises, which is currently shooting in Jodphur, India. Production will later move to Pittsburgh, PA, which has taken over for Chicago as Gotham City.

Jackman Heading Out On A Fantastic Voyage?

James Cameron's newest pet project, a reboot of the groundbreaking 1966 sci fi epic Fantastic Voyage could have Hugh Jackman on board. According to Deadline, Shawn Levy, the director of the Fox re-imagining has his eye on the Wolverine. Word is they got along pretty well on Real Steel, the DreamWorks film set for release October 7.

Jeremy Renner In The Bourne Legacy

According to Deadline, Universal announced today that it has offered the lead in the new film, The Bourne Legacy, to actor Jeremy Renner. With production set to begin in September, this new movie centers around an operative from a covert government program similar to, but much more dangerous than the Treadstone program that spawned Bourne. The film will be written and directed by Terry Gilroy, who also wrote the first three Bourne films.

Reeves and Gillespie Set To Direct Vampires And Zombies

Matt Reeves, best known for last year's undead success Let Me In and the monster hit, Cloverfield, is set to direct another horror epic featuring vampires. According to Deadline, Fox 2000 is having Reeves sink fang into the film The Passage, based on the best-selling Justin Cronin novel. When terminal cancer patients are subjected to the bites of bats in South America, they appear to be cured. The government furthers the experiments and everything unravels. Instead of a permanent cure for cancer, they unleash a vampiric plague. The patients are turned into superhuman, telepathic vampires that drive the human race to brink of extinction. It's good to see vampires get their monster status back after Twilight yanked their fangs out by turning them into sparkling, angst-ridden posers.

And speaking of monsters, it's zombie time! Lionsgate has tapped Craig Gillespie from Lars and the Real Girl and the upcoming Fright Night remake, to direct Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the Seth Grahame-Smith mash-up novel of the Jane Austen classic. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth must navigate drawing room society while battling an army of undead ghouls. Yummy!

I loved both novels and am looking forward to see what these two exciting directors do with the material. Do you think they have what it takes to deliver the goods for these best-selling novels?

Joe Pesci Joins Gotti Biopic, Big Sur Cast Set

Joe Pesci gets back to his gangster roots as he joins the cast of the mob biopic Gotti: Three Generations. He will reportedly play the Dapper Don's deputy, Angelo Ruggiero. The film stars John Travolta as John Gotti, Sr. and is directed by Nick Cassevetes. In talks for a supposed major role is Lindsey Lohan. This is the first film about Gotti, Sr. approved by his son. The one-time Gambino crime family boss was convicted in 1992 of five murders, loan sharking, illegal gambling, obstruction of justice, tax evasion and bribery. Travolta calls this "probably the most interesting untold story in this country."

Abduction First Trailer, Tom Hanks News

Taylor Lautner hits the bigs in his post-Twilight career with the high octane thriller, Abduction, from director John Singleton. Lautner takes on his first solo lead role as Nathan, a young man who uncovers a terrible secret about his birth when he finds his baby photo on a missing persons website. Co-starring Lily Collins, Sigourney Weaver and Alfred Molina, Abduction will hit theaters September 23. It looks exciting, sort of a twist on The Bourne Identity.

Michael Shannon is General Zod in Superman: Man of Steel

After months of speculation about just who Superman would do battle with in the upcoming Superman: Man of Steel, Zack Snyder and company have cast Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon as the villainous Kryptonian, General Zod. Michael was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2009 for his role of a mentally disturbed man in the Sam Mendes drama, Revolutionary Road. He currently stars in HBO's acclaimed series, Boardwalk Empire as the zealous federal agent Nelson Van Alden.

Superman: Man of Steel Coming to Chicago

Chicago continues to make a name for itself in big budget action flicks as it grabs a piece of the Superman reboot. While most of the principle photography is set for Vancouver, the huge action sequences will be shot here. The reason: access to military hardware. We apparently can get the cargo planes and attack helicopters necessary along with an aircraft carrier and fighter jets.

Chi Town has played host to several huge blockbusters of late, standing in for Gotham City in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. This summer will see destruction rain down on the Windy City in Transformers 3: Dark Side of the Moon. I am so excited. I had tons of fun watching them film both Dark Knight and Transformers 3.

Two Popular Female Characters Get A Reboot

Two iconic female characters have gotten reboots in light of two new films. Miss Marple, the older, spinsterish creation of Agatha Christie, will be played by none other than Jennifer Garner. Garner, who will also produce, and Walt Disney Studios will re-invent the literary crime solver for a younger, hipper audience with a script by Twin Peaks writer Mark Frost. Miss Marple's most famous outing to date was perhaps the 1980 film, The Mirror Crack'd starring Angela Lansbury in the pivotal role and co-starring Hollywood luminaries Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis.

Red Dawn: It's Enemy Makeover Time

Only in Hollywood does a remake get a makeover. To the tune of nearly a million dollars, MGM made some serious modifications to its retooling of the Cold War cult classic, Red Dawn. In a bow to political correctness and marketing opportunities, the studio has re-edited the film to make the villains North Korean instead of Chinese. Through digital enhancements and re-shoots, uniforms, flags and dialogue were all made to reflect this new enemy.

Aronofsky Quits The Wolverine

In a shocking statement released Thursday, acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky has announced that he has quit the production of The Wolverine, 20th Century Fox's highly anticipated superhero sequel. In a joint statement released with Fox, the director told The Hollywood Reporter "As I talked more about the film with my collaborators at Fox, it became clear that the production of The Wolverine would keep me out of the country for almost a year." He further stated, "I was not comfortable being away from my family for that length of time. I am sad that I won't be able to see the project through, as it is a terrific script and I was very much looking forward to working with my friend, Hugh Jackman, again."

Red Riding Hood: The Good, The Bad, The WTF

I went into this film with such high hopes. It had all the elements for a great movie experience; a werewolf, Gary Oldman, slaughter of innocents and a love triangle. What I got was the Brothers Grimm go to high school.

Our tale opens in ye olde Daggerhorn, a postcard medieval fantasy village set on the edge of some vast, generic forest. The WTF starts right off. In this little hamlet, all the peasants are pretty and there're enough hair products to open a salon. Anyway, the little town has a huge ass werewolf problem. No real explanation is given as to how or why, we’re just told that this monster’s been terrorizing these people for two generations. Instead of killing the beast or anything else remotely resembling common sense, these people have struck a deal of sorts with said wolf. In exchange for the culinary delights of little baby animals once a month, the monster stays away. Another WTF moment and I’m not that far into the movie. You can see where this is going, can’t you?

Novels Coming to the Big Screen

As an author, I am very excited about 2011 so far and where it seems to be headed. This is definitely one helluva year for novels. I mean, Harry Potter, the Twilight gang and Stieg Larsson aside, many popular books are receiving film treatments. This is most refreshing in light of all the remakes, reboots and sequels Hollywood has been churning out with all of the forethought of a greedy kid in a toy store. Now, I like a good reboot or a sequel just as much as the next fan, but I also love original material, especially when there are so many great books out there from which to choose.

More Superhero Hype

Though this year is in no way short of some great comic book action spilling out onto the screen with the likes of Green Lantern, X-Men First Class, Captain America and Thor, still 2012 is shaping up to be the year of the Superhero movie.
We will see the initially not so welcomed reboot of the Spider-man movie franchise , another attempt at bringing Superman to our big screens that works with this generation, and maybe the most anticipated superhero sequel of them all - The Dark Knight Rises.

Terminator 5 rumours spring back into action!

-Though the film is not the only rumour claiming to be back.

With the recent news that Universal are interested in buying the rights to the Terminator franchise which is currently owned by a hedge fund named Pacificor many rumours are again resurfacing on what direction the movie may follow and who may be getting involved.

The last outing, Terminator Salvation directed by McG was planned to be the start of a new trilogy, however Salvation under-performed in the States (though still making big bucks over seas), and the then owners of the Terminator franchise - Andrew G Vajna and Mario Kasser facing bankruptcy and selling the rights to The Halcyon Company which in turn sold the rights to Pacificor, all hope of the McG trilogy faded fast, though some people were not too upset by that notion.
