  1. 2014 started with a horror film, Devil's Due. Fox teamed up with Columbia for the all-star The monuments Men, involving the saving of artwork during WWII Son of God brought the story of Jesus back to the big screen. The Grand Budapest Hotel was nothing less than one of the best films of the last 25 years. Mr Peabody and Sherman was a new take on supporting characters from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show. Jude Law was a criminal in the dark comedy Don Hemingway. The talking birds now went to the Amazon jungle. The Other Woman f
  2. Well, this is it, the final installment. Thousands of films and it all leads here. Fox became part of Disney officially in march in 2019, much chaos has followed. Still, despite a rather sparse number of releases so far, there are many more Fox films waiting for their release dates, so I will include those too for a complete picture. So call it a preview of things to come. Again Fox handled an animated film overseas but not in the US. The Kid Who Would Be King mixed elements of the King Arthur legend into a modern setting. Alita: Battle Angel was meant to start a new f
  3. The year opened with friends Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway at each other's throats in Bride Wars, after Candise Bergen scheduled their weddings on the same day. Notorious was about the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. not a remake of the Hitchcock classic. Liam Neeson started his action cycle in Taken. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li was another video game film. Miss march was another comedy of raunch. 12 Rounds was another teamup with the WWE. Dragonball Evolution was based on Japanese manga action comics. Sure as the day
  4. 2008 began with the romantic comedy 27 Dresses. Meet the Spartans followed, another spoof of new releases. Jumper was a sci-fi film with the ability of very fast travel. Horton Hears a Who expanded a popular children's book. it had its moments. Back to horror with Shutter. Nim's Island was a pretty good children's adventure film with a plucky Abigail Breslin and Jodie Foster in a rare comic performance. Street Kings was a crime saga with Forrest Whitaker and Keanu Reeves. Young @ Heart was a documentary involving a senior ro
  5. Grandma's Boy starting 2006 was going to be shocking for fans of Shirley Jones, Doris Roberts, and Shirley Knight. They were all much cast against type in a risque stoner comedy. James Franco appeared in a new version of the youthful tragedy Tristan and Isolde. Imagine Me and You was also an inversion and was in some ways a LGBT take (with different ending) on 1979's 10. Martin Lawrence donned the dress again for Big Momma's House 2. Night Watch was a supernatural horror film from Russia. Date Movie was a Scary Movie-esque lampoon of romances..
  6. The number of films sagged in 2018, perhaps in part because of the Disney merger that was impending.... it started with Condorito, an animated film that Fox only handled in Latin America. The dystopian Maze Runner trilogy was finished off. Red Sparrow came next, a provocative spy film, with Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, Joel Egerton, Charlotte Rampling, and Mary-Louise Parker Love Simon told of a gay teen and his misadventures with friends, family, high school life, etc. Isle of Dogs was the latest from Wes Anderson, which m
  7. David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike started the year with A United Kingdom, the saga of a marriage facing opposition in both England and Africa. It was quite good. The offbeat horror film A Cure for Wellness came in right on its heels. Logan was Hugh Jackman's last turn as an X-Man. The Boss Baby was another serving of animation. The poster looks like an internet post, but Table 19 was an actual film, an offbeat comedy. Wilson with Woody harrellson and Laura Dern continued the offbeat trend. Gifted was a charmer, a moving comedy-drama ove
  8. 2016 started with the final installment of DreamWorks' animated Kung Fu Panda series. Deadpool with Ryan Reynolds served up a massive hit to Fox and broke the mold for superhero movies by going for a hard R. Eddie the Eagle was a most enjoyable underdog story from the 1988 Olympics about a British ski jumper. Taron Edgerton was charming in the lead, and hugh Jackman made a fine coach. The Other Side of the Door served up supernatural horror. Fox only handled Florence Foster Jenkins in the UK, but even so, it ranks as one of Fox's best of the year with Me
  9. 2015 started with the end of one action series.... Which was then followed by the start of another. An R-rated comedy was up next.... Followed by a winning sequel with a great cast. Home found an alien on earth. And The Longest Ride was a youthful romance. True Story told of the real life tale of a murderer who tried to hide under the identity of a reporter, and how the two ultimately became acquainted. Far from the Madding Crowd was a sumptuous new version of the Thomas Hardy classic, and was one of the year's best films.
  10. Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, and Catherine Zeta-Jones started the year with a neo-noir. Bruce Willis returned to his signature role for the last time.... Stoker was a k.i.n.k.y variation on Shadow of a Doubt.... The original stoners turned to animation....

Greta Gerwig was a young woman facing
  12. Cedar Rapids was the saga of an immature insurance salesman. Big Mommas: Like Father like Son was the last in this particular series... Win win was a very good sports comedy about a put-upon man who takes in a high school wrestler just for funds, but grows to love the boy like a son. Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, and Burt Young starred. And then a quick followup to a kids film of the previous year.... The trend continued with Rio, an animated film involving talking birds. Dum Maaro Dum was a crime film from India. Water for Elephants invol
  13. 2010 began with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson becoming a Tooth Fairy. Ashley Judd, Billy Crystal, and Julie Andrews co-starred. My Name is Kahn was a drama about prejudice.... While Percy Jackson and the Olympians; The Lightning Thief was a fantasy for youthful audiences, and is likely the only film where Uma Thurman has snakes for hair.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid was based on a series of children's books, and spawned a few bread-and-butter followups Tina Fey and Steve Carell were

Hide and Seek, a violent thriller, with Robert De Niro, Dakota Fanning, Famke Janssen, Elisabeth Sue, Amy Irving, and Melissa Leo soon followed. Because of Winn-Dixie was the sweet, simple tale of a girl and her dog, nothing more, but likable, with good support from Jeff Daniels, Cicely Tyson, and Eva Marie Saint. Millions was another family film, this one about brothers finding a cache of stolen money that fell off a train, and how one wanted to do good things with it. Danny Boyle directed it.

Kissing Jessica Stein was a comedy for the independent crowds. Ice Age was a major animated hit, and spawned a whole series.

  19. The new millennium started rather inauspiciously with Monkeybone, a dark comedy with Brendan Fraser, Bridget Fonda, and Whoopi Goldberg. Say It Isn't So was another risque comedy again trying to shatter taboos. Ashley Judd and Greg Kinnear starred in Someone Like You, a calmer sort of comedy then the other two. The comedies kept coming with Kingdom Come, a vehicle for African-American talent. And then, something notorious. Freddy Got Fingered was quickly slammed as being one of the worst movies ever made. It could only be up from that, and Moul
  20. 2000 started with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tilda Swinton in the moody The Beach. Fox had big expectations for this that were not fulfilled.

  23. 1997 started with the dark, brooding neonoir, Blood and Wine, a good film with strong work from Jack Nicholson, Michael Caine, and Judy Davis. Smilla's Sense of Snow had a preposterous sci-fi twist near the end of its main story, but don't let it stop you. the film was gripping, elegant, suspenseful, beautifully filmed and very well acted by Julia Ormond, Gabriel Byrne, Richard Harris, Robbert Loggia, Jim Broadbent, and Vanessa Redgrave. More Power Rangers for the kids, but they didn't budge from home. Love and Other Catastrophes was an Australian romantic comedy.

  25. Well, this is where I came in. My birth year. And also a year that had one element that would ensure some interesting things from Fox in the future.

Bye Bye Love had Randy Quaid, Paul Reiser, and Matthew Modine as divorcees who had different feelings about the whole experience. Janeane Garofalo got what few good notices the film received for playing a catastrophic blind date. Another year, another remake of a 1947 film. This time it was Kiss of Death with
