Happy New Year guys. Thanks so much for visiting the site I hope 2011 bring you lots of happiness, joy and success. May all your resolutions come to fruition.
Here’s also hoping Justin has an awesome 2011. He is turning 30 next month so he has one hell of a big party to look forward to . It’s just incredible how quickly time flies pheww… There’s also 3 movies coming up so it’s sure going to be a blockbuster year for him and all of us hehe.
Justin Timberlake has said over and over again that he’s not ready to record a new album. Nonetheless, that hasn’t stopped the pop star-turned-actor from hitting the studio for collaborations with other artists and doing some recording here and there for himself. His latest musical serving to appease his hungry fans is a track called “Take You Down,” which leaked online Thursday (December 30).
Timberlake opens the drum-heavy track with a summon to all the girls, before a female vocalist echoes the matching line with a series of stuttering “uh-oh’s.” The song, reportedly produced by the Neptunes, finds JT luring, tempting and somewhat challenging his female interest.
“I’ve seen my magic/ What’s your looks and your religion?/ And I want you to understand that I can make you feel better/ So it’s me and you, my place, sexiness all day/ I’mma do whatever you like, if you cater to me all night, girl,” he sings during the second verse.
In addition to production credits, various Internet blogs have reported that “Take You Down” may in fact be a demo as opposed to one of the 29-year-old’s own songs.
Timberlake recently spoke to the Los Angeles Times about fans who feel like the star has neglected his musical calling. “They’re looking at me like, ‘Why aren’t you staying with one path?’ ” he said. “They look at me like I’m ungrateful for my music career because I want to do film.”
Until JT feels ready to hit the studio to record the follow-up to 2006′s FutureSex/LoveSounds, fans will have to make do with the singer’s scarce musical ventures. His next offering may be a collaboration with Drake, who recently revealed, “I’ve always wanted to work with him, and it’s in the works right now: Me and Justin Timberlake will probably have a song soon.”
Now chatting exclusively with 95.8 Capital FM, actor Andrew Garfield, star of Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot talks a bit about the overall progress, experience, and the emotional feeling of donning the tights of the webslinger and more. Even touching on learning early that he’d been cast, Garfield says:
“It’s going great and I’m having a fantastic time. We have such an amazing cast, so I’m heaven playing this role. I feel like a kid in the candy store, I’m one lucky boy I tell you.”
So what does it feel like to wear the infamous red and blue suit?
“It’s bizarre and I have to not look at my face. It’s strange and surreal to be wearing it and I won’t lie I actually shed a tear when I first wore the spandex for the first time. I didn’t expect to get so emotional but I did.”
So did Andrew’s ['Social Network] co-star Justin Timberlake also congratulate him?
“Yeah, he sent me a couple of texts saying that he’s so proud of me and Jesse and something equally cool. He’s the most supportive and loving friend and what we pride ourselves on is the fact that we’ve also been nominated for a several ensemble categories and that really means a lot to us.”
As the end of the year nears, Rotten Tomatoes have released the tallies for the best reviewed movies of 2010. I thought we’d compare the list with the other movie review compilation site Metacritic.
Both sites have their advantages. Rotten Tomatoes includes a larger sample of reviews, while Metacritic features a smaller more-selected grouping of film critics. Rotten Tomatoes calculates critic scores using a positive or negative score for each review. One movie could be 100% fresh with all the critics giving the movie a 7/10 grade. Metacritic attempts to gauge the score of each critic’s review (not just a positive or negative, but a number 0 to 100) averaged together, giving you a better indication of what the response is to any given film, and not just a percentage of positive reviews.
For example, How To Train Youyr Dragon is ranked #2 for the year on Rotten Tomatoes with a 98% fresh rating based on 146 reviews. But on Metacritic, Dragon has a 74% average with 33 reviews. Honestly, I like how Metacritic calculates the numbers, but their refusal to incorporate a larger sample of film critics puts them behind Rotten Tomatoes in my mind.
The Phoenix Film Critics have announced their winners. They chose The King’s Speech as the best film of 2010. Last year, they named Inglourious Basterds the best film of 2009, and Quentin Tarantino Best Director. The Social Network won in the following categories:
Best Screenplay – Adaptation
The Social Network
Never Let Me Go
Best Ensemble Acting
The Social Network
The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech
Think you’re the only one taking a pre-emptive look around the corner at 2011? Think again. USA TODAY’s Andrea Mandell reveals how the stars are sketching out a fresh start in the brand-new decade.
Justin Timberlake resolves to quiet his alarm clock. “Just some sleep — some time and some sleep,” says Timberlake, 29, who juggled promoting critical hit The Social Network with shooting upcoming films Friends With Benefits and sci-fi flick Now in 2010. “Unless something comes along that’s like the most unbelievable project, I’m going to take some time off next year.”

1. “The Social Network” (Columbia, 10/1, PG-13, trailer)
I distinctly remember sitting in a movie theater over the summer when the first teaser for “the Facebook movie” began playing, prompting groans and snickering all around me — stuff along the lines of, “What’s it gonna be about? A server crashing?” How wrong they were. “The Social Network” proved to be not only the best film of the year, but quite possibly the best film of the 21st century thus far (and one with eery similarities to the best film of the 20th).
Critically beloved (it swept all of the major critics awards and placed #1 more than any other film on individual critics’ top 10 lists) and commercially successful (it topped the box-office in each of its first two weeks and will soon have grossed more than $100 million, twice its $50 million budget), it’s one of those rare instances in which everything just clicked: a Chayefsky-esque script from the modern-day master of dialgoue Aaron Sorkin (at 162 pages it should have run 2 hours and 42 minutes, but because of its rapid-fire delivery, which is so appropriate for the brilliant young characters of the film, it runs 42 minutes shorter, and includes the most electric opening and closing scenes of any movie this year); a distinct attitude and visual style courtesy of David Fincher (who famously demanded as many as 100 takes for some scenes, and because — or in spite — of that has created a movie that feels more alive and moving in a deposition room than others do in combat or love scenes — not to mention one with his signature stamp of cool visual effects in the form of the Winklevii); a haunting score from Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and his collaborator Atticus Ross (in some ways the unlikeliest of sources); and an ensemble of young actors in which everyone fit their roles like a glove, from Jesse Eisenberg (who nails Mark Zuckerberg’s awkward genius, and who will never again be confused with Michael Cera by anyone who sees this film) to Andrew Garfield (as Mark’s loyal and then wounded friend) to Justin Timberlake (as a self-invented smooth operator who talks his way into Mark’s operation) to Rooney Mara (who, in just a few minutes of screen time, makes one understand why Mark would go to the end of the world to try to win her character back, and why Fincher wanted her more than anyone else for the lead in his next film, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”).
The concern of some about “The Social Network” was that only young people would be able to “get” it, and that they would choose to go to a comic book movie instead. That has proven not to be the case. Indeed, people of all ages have responded to it because you really don’t have to understand the intricacies of Facebook — any more than you have to know how a hedge fund works in “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” — in order to follow a story that is ultimately about pride, ambition, friendship, and betrayal; in fact, few can probably understand it better than people who have worked in the film industry. For better or worse, it’s a story that captures the world in which we live today — and the direction in which we appear to be headed — as well as any.
