RRICHARD ROEPER’s (Sun-Times Columnist’s) Top 10 Movies 0f 2009
“Brothers” is No.1!
A brilliant, beautiful, harsh, gut-punching, 21st century war story with Biblical overtones. Some critics said Jim Sheridan’s adaptation of the great Danish film to be too glossy and heavy-handed, but I found it to be just as profound as the original. Either you buy Tobey Maguire’s tightly wound performance or you don’t. I thought his performance was pure truth. A perfectly realized screenplay, intense performances from all the leads, amazing work by the supporting cast, including the two little girls. Reminiscent of classics such as “Coming Home.” Source: suburbanchicagonews.com
David Edelstein’s Top 13 Films
“Brothers” is No.3!
Brothers Jim Sheridan’s melancholy drama (with superlative performances by Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman and Sam Shepard), explores not just the horror of the “war on terror,” but the chemistry of families — the connections that shape our actions even when separated from loved ones by continents.

News and Interviews!
Jim Sheridan and Jake Gyllenhaal were interviewed and they mentioned Tobey:
GYLLENHAAL: Well, I can say that I think watching Tobey in the movie, that’s sort of the most extraordinary truth of it, watching somebody do something like that. I can only speak from personal experience but I have been blessed to watch actors who people didn’t feel were a certain way or could perform a certain thing do that. I’ve been honored to watch that. It’s always nice to see when people, journalists and people who never thought of someone one way, and then seeing them that way. I watched him go from the first part of the movie [BEFORE MAGUIRE’S CHARACTER GOES OVERSEAS] and then we had a Christmas break inbetween and then he had another week and when he came back he was another person and he was another person than what he was in the first couple of weeks that we started shooting. That was an extraordinary transformation, not only to watch as an actor but as a person and as an audience member. And now watching the movie I feel that way, too. Source: bostonherald.com

Two new movie rumours:
Tobey Maguire In Line To Play Bilbo Baggins? Source: cinemablend.com
Tobey quickly denied this rumour:
“I have not met or spoken to Guillermo del Toro or Peter Jackson or anybody. Nobody has given me a script or approached me about it,” Maguire said of any first hand contact he may have had with the director and executive producer team of the big screen adaptation of the prequel book to the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
