The 2009 Sundance Film Festival wrapped up last night with a fancy awards show followed by one of those hippity-hop closing night parties.

The beautiful weather has left Park City, as have most of the press, celebs and fest freaks — but for some odd reason I’m still here, watching movies and eating mediocre Chinese while quietly discovering some excellent new talent. Though still a relatively unknown (so much so that she signed with an agency at this year’s Sundance), watch out for the name Carey Mulligan, a delightful new actress who some folks are calling “the new Audrey”, yet I feel she’s more of a British Katie Holmes … except normal and not married to a psycho. … Read More

When it comes to a major festival like Sundance (celebrating its 25th anniversary this year), the word used most in conversations amongst film nerds is ‘buzz’. But ‘buzz’ is a tricky animal, because it can come from anywhere, is often unreliable and won’t, under any circumstances, stick around to say it’s sorry after steering you in the wrong direction. … Read More

Officially Scary: Stephen King’s Picks for the Best Flicks of 2008

In order to wind up as one of Stephen King’s favorite films of the year, all a movie needs to do is be seen by Stephen King. The legendary horror author recently revealed his top ten to Entertainment Weekly, and his choices are bound to scare any serious movie lover into, well, deciding against ever going to the movies with Stephen King. EW should hobble the novelist for handing in something like this and make him start all over again.

His top choices seem appropriate (if only a smidge fanboy-ish), as King picked The Dark Knight for his number one spot (calling it “the best superhero movie ever”). From there he strings together three more fan favorites – Slumdog Millionaire, WALL-E and Tropic Thunder — before launching a Hail Mary at the 2008 movie slate to see what sticks (or should we say, sucks?). … Read More

Five Upcoming Films That Make Us Go Hmmmm…

Countless films travel through various stages of development during any given year, and out of that lot, only a select few make it to the big screen — and then even fewer are actually worth watching.

After the jump, we explore some of the lamest films that might be coming to a theatre near you much sooner than we’d like. … Read More
