2012 breakout and 2013 Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has already built a towering career in cinema, giving us reasons to love her in "The Help," lead her to safety in "Mama," and give her a standing ovation in "Zero Dark Thirty." But what if Chastain's character in "Zero Dark Thirty" searched high and low for America's Most Hated Terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, with the help of that dude from "Catfish"? That would be hilarious, right? Get More »

I must confess – I genuinely think 2010 was a good year in movies.
Of course, I'm not simply basing that on a series of obviously stellar performances and the number of films deserving of awards recognition. And I'm not making my list after staring at a bunch of pundits' thoughts on the matter.
My favorite movies are ones that either make me feel something real and physical (and not just that sense of "I'm so smart. I saw that little indie") or that I'm inclined to watch over and over. Better yet, I like my movies to do both, and it's a tall order.
So sure, I really enjoyed and appreciated "The King's Speech" and "The Social Network" – I'm an Aaron Sorkin fan, after all – but they didn't make enough of an emotional impact and I can't picture myself popping the disc into my Blu-ray player on a snowy January night. These, however, are another story: Get More »
Twas a year in which sequels ("Toy Story 3," Iron Man 2"), "originals" ("Inception," "Despicable Me") and movies somewhere in between ("Alice in Wonderland") dominated the box office side-by-side.
But what movies ranked highest where it matters most (you know… in our hearts)?
From thrilling new installments in the behemoth "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" franchises to fascinating prestige films that mined gold from surprising sources like Facebook and ballet, here are our picks for the very best of the best of 2010. Get More »
Was there a more controversial film than "Cafish" in 2010?
After its premiere at Sundance in January, the documentary about -- spoiler alert! -- the dangers of the web surfed a tidal wave of hype that questioned its veracity, criticized its aesthetic and praised its bold take on life in the information age.
"Is this really a documentary?" was the question on audiences' tongues after seeing the film. "And, if not, does that take away its oomph?" Get More »
You know what we love? A good, old-fashioned documentary. Sometimes, that's really the stuff.
And this year there's been an exceptionally strong batch of documentary features, which explains why more than 100 of them were submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for this year's Oscars. Now, though, the suits at the Academy have trimmed the field to just 15 finalists... and the controversial "Catfish" and crowd-pleasing "Babies" are nowhere to be seen. Get More »
If you thought "The Sixth Sense" had a good twist, just wait until you see "Catfish." The catch? It's a documentary.
It was only a matter of time before Facebook would itself serve as the focal point for a number of films. Let's face it, the site has become a inescapable phenomenon that even grandma uses. Get More »
You know about "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." You know about Shia LaBeouf and the "Wall Street" sequel, Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" and the Facebook movie (aka "The Social Network").
But now, NextMovie drops a dime on nine fall flicks that may be flying under the radar, but which we predict will stir up a nice respectable buzz when they hit theaters. The list includes Oscar winners, a Sexiest Man Alive, life-changing documentaries, book and play adaptations, a remake, a vampire tween and that modern day Renaissance man, James Franco. Get More »
