Hollywood's Review Of The Year | Danny DeVito
Danny DeVito

“I love Attack The Block. Man, I got off on that picture! I immediately told people about that movie, because it’s so much fun and totally original. What’s the director doing next? I want to be a part of it!”

5 RE: totally agree with cyberleader
So again we start the year with the self-defined 'art film' chip (although, interestingly, a lot of people would put the unnecessarily faffy Joe Wright directed Hanna in that category). On the News 24 Film bit, with Karen Krizanovich (sp?), it was interesting to hear that The Artist is getting a very widespread release in small cinemas all over the US midwest. That's not how you put out a limited interest art film. And I think you're maybe missing the point that silent films are not a genre in of themselves - it's like saying all British films are all the same genre. IN silents you'd get action, broad comedy, romance, drama - and a mass audience worldwide hanging on every frame. The very definition of populism - and exactly the opposite of the concept of 'art film' you're being critical of. More

Most of them are naming films made by pals. Also, why are most of the choices arty? What: no love for Thor? Captain America? Sigh. Still, some good choices and quite a few of them are admirable people so I'll leave them alone, still...where are all the popcorn movies? More

“I’ve only seen a few, because they’ve only just started to send out the Academy screeners" that comment makes robin williams sound like a real cheapskate who doesn't wanna fork out for cinema tickets or dvds More
