Arts in Review: The Year in Film

Avatar is not on critic Tricia Olszewski's list of the best films of the year. Nor is much of the 2009's year-end Oscar bait. In terms of quality, Olszewski writes in our Arts in Review issue, it hasn't been a terribly joyful holiday season, but 2009 still contained plenty of films to get excited about. [...]

Tricia’s Takes: News and Notes from the World of Film!
Leo Tolstoy, the Oscars, and Rupert Everett’s weird advice

*'Tis the Season For Your Consideration: The Independent Spirit Awards announced its nominees, with the much-ballyhooed abused-teen drama Precious and yet-to-be-released Leo Tolstoy biopic The Last Station leading with five nods each.

This Week in Film

Zombies, roller derby, schmaltz, and Michael Moore. Another avalanche of openings this weekend, and—shockingly—most of them are worth your while. Summer's officially over!
Zombieland: Think there are no more zombie-related stories or jokes to tell? So did I. Which is why this very entertaining film is such a surprise. Fun fact: Remember Woody Harrelson's tussle with [...]

Paranormal Activity Opening in D.C. on Demand

And by "demand" they mean "gimmick."
Last week, Paramount opened a low-budget, Blair Witch-esque film called Paranormal Activity in a handful of cities, testing the rest of the country's interest in seeing the movie by directing people to a Web site at which viewers could click a "Demand it!" button and enter their location.
