What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly entertainment news column that collects all the best links of the day, then adds commentary. It is also glad to be back from its Christmas break and hopes you got everything you wanted. It got almost everything on its list.
For those who have seen Cameron Crowe’s latest, this is likely to be good for a laugh. The ever-talented Jen Yamato at Movieline presents The We Bought a Zoo Irresponsibility Index. As if buying a zoo in this economy wasn’t irresponsible enough.
Over at Badass Digest, poster expert extraordinaire Roger Erik Tinch runs down a list of the Top Ten Official One-Sheet MoviePosters of 2011, including some wicked art for Hobo with a Shotgun, Captain America, Hesher and others. Personally, I can’t wait to see his best unofficial posters list, as that will undoubtedly have some great stuff in it.
Speaking of movie posters that are good. Here’s a new one-sheet for The Paperboy, starring Zac Efron, John Cusack’s crazy eyes, a shirted Matthew McConaughey and a deviously trashy Nicole Kidman. Also, that car is pink.
Over at Red Carpet Crash, our own sex columnist Gwen Reyes has published a list of 2011’s most notable cinematic beards. Yep, it’s perhaps my new favorite list that I will be trying to convince her to write for FSR next year. Why? Because we must be the authorities on cinematic beards. It is our destiny.
The fine folks at eFilmCritic have published their annual list of The Quote Whores of the Year, in which the chronicle the film critics (if you choose to call them that) who played the most ball with studio marketing departments and gave great pull-quotes for not-so-great movies. My personal favorite is Carrie Keagan’s quote for 30 Minutes or Less: “A blast. Funny! Wear a diaper, it’s that good!” It was funny, but I did not shit myself, Ms. Keagan.
Our friends at Screenrant have issued a list of the 10 most disappointing films of 2011. It’s not quite the epic march that was our own Worst Films of 2011 list, but they’ve made some interesting points. Though I would question whether or not anyone really had high hopes for In Time…
And because I’m way into publishing lists, even if they aren’t lists we wrote, here’s /Film’s Russ Fischer with his list of the 10 most anticipated films of 2012. In a few days we will, of course, dwarf this list with our own, but this should hold you over for now.
We close tonight with Filmography 2011 by genrocks. Have I run this video yet? Perhaps I have, but I like it that much that I would risk running it twice. So here it is:
