2010 ended with a whimper with most studio execs facing an uncertain 2011, as the year closed with eight consecutive weekends of box office earning lower than its 2009 counterpart despite five major 3D releases goosing prices. Of course, 3D is a gimmick, but it’s foolish to consider that each of those five films were relative underperformers due to disinterest in the format when even the most ardent fan must admit to subpar product. Of course, the industry is always looking for a scapegoat when the answer is clearly, “terrible movies are being made and should not be,” so the disappearance of 3D (not likely) will happen before a sudden spike in high quality entertainment.

First, we’ll start you off with a warning: there are plenty of plot spoilers within, so if you haven’t seen the movies on this list you might want to do yourself a favor and watch them first before having some key scenes, and in some cases even the ending, ruined for you.

While 2009 seemed to burst at the seams with numerous ace soundtracks -- largely thanks to new films from Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Jim Jarmusch, Greg Mottola and Quentin Tarantino -- unless you were a “Twilight” fan, pickings were a lot slimmer this year for well curated songs in films (though, as you’ll see, there were some definite standouts). However, as if to compensate, composers stepped it up considerably with old reliables like Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, Carter Burwell and Michael Giacchino delivering the goods while left field surprises like Daft Punk and Trent Reznor shook up the stodgy old boys club with compelling, highly original work. Here’s the music from films that rocked our iPods in 2010.

Aaron Eckhart Attended Grief Counseling Sessions In Character For 'Rabbit Hole'; Nicole Kidman So Moved, Pained By The Film, She'll Never Watch It AgainJohn Cameron Mitchell’s “Rabbit Hole” tears away at the damaging scabs that form when people lose loved ones. Appropriately, it has been a somber press tour for Mitchell, screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire and stars Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Sandra Oh. We recently caught up with them to talk about the difficult emotional landscape of the film. In “Rabbit Hole,” Kidman and Eckhart play a married couple still trying to understand how to cope with the loss of their son, taken by a car accident eight months before the start of the movie.

Hollywood lays out the red carpet for "Tron: Legacy" this week, because there's surprisingly little competition for the 3D spectacle this high-season almost holiday weekend. Sure, there's something for the kids with (shudder) "Yogi Bear" and something for the ladies with "How Do You Know," but 'Tron' is bringing some of that summer blockbuster swagger to winter. Maybe studio execs assume everyone's going to be spending those hard earned bucks on gifts or warm and toasty yuletide libations. At any rate, despite the rather slim pickins there's a little something for everyone at the multiplex, and even some awards-season contenders for those of you who treat Oscar nomination morning like the NFL draft pick.

From transsexual off-Broadway musicals to hardcore gay sex on the big screen, John Cameron Mitchell has come a long way as a performer, writer and director. Now, he takes on his biggest challenge: prestigious A-List character drama. Based on the book by David Lindsay-Abaire, “Rabbit Hole” tells the story of a couple in flux while trying to cope with life in the wake of their son’s passing.

As much as we love to crap on the lazy attempts or woeful misfires, making a one-sheet is hard, the more subtle and complex the work, the more difficult it is to encapsulate the film into a poster. So it's rare when something works well, but when it does, the results are definitely rewarding.
