RT Editors Choose Their Favorite Films of 2010! Opens in new window

Another year is nigh upon us, so we at RT figured it was a good time to reflect on the cinematic slate with a compilation of some of our personal favorites of 2010. It was a strange year, one bereft of a four-quadrant-spanning film that galvanized the public ? like 2009's Avatar, for example ? but not without plenty of highlights and idiosyncratic releases, from Inception to Scott Pilgrim. So take a look at our selections, and tell us: what were your favorite movies of 2010? More...

RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Dream A Little Bigger with Inception Opens in new window

This week on home video, we've got what many of you have been waiting for.

Then, we've got the final installment of an animated Dreamworks franchise, a collection of excellent made-for-TV sports documentaries, and a Certified Fresh doc on the war in Afghanistan. Lastly, we've also got a couple of psycho-thrillers that have gotten the Criterion Collection treatment, and one massive collection from one of the major studios. Rest assured that the last item alone will ensure that this week pretty much does have something for everyone, so check out the list! More...

Box Office Guru Wrapup: Inception Beats Schmucks for #1 Spot Opens in new window

Three new intruders couldn't keep fans away from Leonardo DiCaprio's hit thriller Inception which captured the number one spot in North America for the third straight time. Among new releases, the Steve Carell-Paul Rudd comedy Dinner for Schmucks delivered a good opening in the runnerup spot while the 3D family film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and the teen melodrama Charlie St. Cloud both disappointed in their debuts. Christopher Nolan's mind games on moviegoers continued with Inception pulling in an estimated $27.5M in its third weekend to rule the box office once again. The Warner Bros. sensation dropped only 36% and boosted its 17-day total to a stellar $193.3M with the $200M barrier set to fall on Tuesday in its 19th day of release. More...

Dude! It's the 15 Manliest Movies Ever! Opens in new window

There's a certain kind of movie that appeals to our manliest of sensibilities; movies that ooze an alpha brand of machismo like so much hard-earned sweat. And when we go to these movies, we like to watch men of action. Men who won't back down. Men with huge, rippling, inconceivable muscles, finely-honed fighting skills, and sharpshooting precision. Little kids admire them. Villains revile them. Women desire them. They are the roughest, toughest, sweatiest, and coolest guys to ever grace the silver screen. With that in mind, we at RT have manned up and compiled a list of the movies' most manly men. So listen up, maggots, 'cause here come the most macho, mantastical men of your wildest mantasies.

Box Office Guru Wrapup: Inception Retains the Top Spot Opens in new window

This weekend, Warner Bros. enjoyed a sensational second weekend for its sci-fi thriller Inception which capitalized on amazing buzz to remain the most popular film in North America. Angelina Jolie's new action pic Salt had to settle for second place but the spy thriller still generated a healthy opening. Like last weekend, funny films had the best holds while everything else dropped harder. More...

Box Office Guru Wrapup: Inception Soars to No. 1 Opens in new window

Moviegoers were in the mood for using their brains as the smart sci-fi thriller Inception debuted atop the North American box office chart while the generic effects-driven action pic The Sorcerer's Apprentice was utterly rejected stumbling into third place with a weak showing. Funny holdovers held up well while most others fell sharply as the overall marketplace remained strong. Following much anticipation, Warner Bros. unleashed its Leonardo DiCaprio-led crime thriller Inception and was met with a strong response from ticket buyers taking in an estimated $60.4M in its opening weekend. The studio released the Christopher Nolan-directed pic in 3,792 theaters including a record 197 IMAX sites and averaged a sizzling $15,928 per location. More...

Critics Consensus: Inception Is Certified Fresh Opens in new window

This week at the movies, we've got a mind-bending dreamworld (Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page) and a modern-day fantasia (The Sorcerer's Apprentice, starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel). What do the critics have to say? Christopher Nolan is on a roll. He took the superhero movie to new heights with The Dark Knight, and now he's back with Inception, which critics are calling an ambitious, dreamy sci-fi heist movie that's quite a mind bender. For those who can't wait for the next Harry Potter installment, The Sorcerer's Apprentice provides plenty of wizards and sorcery. What it lacks, say critics, is originality and inspiration. More...

Total Recall: Our Favorite Sci-Fi Noirs Opens in new window

After months of speculation and slowly deafening buzz, Christopher Nolan's Inception arrives in theaters this week, bringing with it a mind-bending storyline that promises visual thrills as well as thought-provoking themes. It's also the latest in a long line of films that blends the visceral power and dark mood of film noir with the boundless worlds of sci-fi -- so naturally, we got to thinking about our favorite sci-fi noir classics from the past. This week's Total Recall includes plenty of manhunts, an abundance of rich subtext, and -- of course -- plenty of Philip K. Dick. Let's get started! More...

Tomatometer Watch: Inception Gets First Rotten Review Opens in new window

"From the director of 'The Dark Knight'." Those words impart some serious expectations for Christopher Nolan's 'Inception', not just in commercial terms (the Bat-sequel took $533 million in the US alone) but also critical stature -- 2008's 'Knight' earned a lofty 94% "Fresh" rating on RT; the kind of numbers usually unheard of for a superhero film. In fact, Nolan's got a track record beyond the Bat that's going to be just as tough to measure himself against. Consider the stats: his 1998 debut, 'Following', is at 80% (with 20 reviews counted); 2001's breakthrough 'Memento' at 93% (134 reviews); 2002's thriller 'Insomnia' 92% (166 reviews); and 2005's 'Batman Begins' boasts an 85% fresh score (254 reviews). Even the critical runt of Nolan's litter, 2006's duel of the magicians 'The Prestige', is sitting on Certified Fresh with 75% from 187 reviews. Plenty to live up to, sure -- but if the early, ecstatic reviews arriving for the film are any indication, 'Inception' just might turn out to be Christopher Nolan's best-reviewed film yet. More...
