Monsters, Inc. 3D Review

23 December 2012 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When a film is converted into 3D and set for a cinematic re-release, there are inevitably going to be questions raised over the necessity of the entire project; one that appears to be a mere cash cow for Disney and Pixar. However, if this is what it takes to bring a film of the brilliance and magnitude of Monsters, Inc. back to the big screen, then so be it.

Set in Monstropolis; a city that is generated solely by the power of a child’s scream, we follow monsters Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal), a professional scarer and his trainer, respectively. The triumphant pair work at Monsters Incorporated, run by the aging yet demanding Henry J. Waternoose (James Coburn), whereby they go into random children’s bedrooms and scare them, collecting their screams for electricity.

However, Sulley accidentally allows a young child, affectionately named Boo, into Monstropolis, a »

Featurette Goes Behind-The-Scenes Of ‘Monsters Inc. 3D’

20 December 2012 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cast your mind all the way back to 2002 – I was an excitable 8 year-old, about to witness the brand new, totally original Disney Pixar creation Monsters Inc. Ten years later and the film is still classed as one of my favourites. With Monsters University scheduled for a summer 2013 release I am more than excited, but it’s going to be a rather long wait. However, the original ‘sequel’ is getting a re-release in January…in 3D!

Today we can bring you a featurette focusing on the conversion from plain old 2D to spectacular 3D. The 2D-3D debate has plagued cinema-going over the last few years, but in my humble opinion Monsters Inc. is one of those films which fits (and deserves) the transformation.

Starring the voices of John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Steve Buscemi, James Coburn, Jennifer Tilly, Bob Peterson, John Ratzenberger and Mary Gibbs, Monsters Inc. 3D hit Us cinemas yesterday (go see it! »

Eastwood/Leone! – The ‘Dollars’ Trilogy Screens at Webster University This Weekend (and Next)

11 December 2012 9:55 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You see, my mule don’t like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you’re laughin’ at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you’re going to, I might convince him that you really didn’t mean it.”

Get three coffins ready. Fans of the Western films of Sergio Leone will think they’ve died and gone to heaven this weekend and next. Webster University is showing Leone’s ‘Dollars’ trilogy; A Fistful Of Dollars (1964), For A Few Dollars More (1965), and The Good The Bad And The Ugly (1966), all starring Clint Eastwood at Winifred Moore Auditorium. This is indeed a rare opportunity. Leone’s masterpiece Once Upon A Time In The West (1968) has played theatrically here in town, most recently at the St. Louis International Film Festival three years ago. I first saw it when it was restored in 1985 and played for a week at the Tivoli, »

Skyfall – The Review

8 November 2012 9:57 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

What’s the one word that really brings a smile to the face of a movie studio executive? Well aside from “profit” that word would probably be “franchise”. That’s a film property that spawns countless sequels and lucrative merchandising. Well Skyfall celebrates 50 years of the greatest. longest-running film franchise of them all (we’ll see if Harry Potter or “Star Wars” can go five decades): James Bond 007. 1962 saw the release of the first ‘Cubby Broccoli/Harry Saltzman produced feature adaptation based on Ian Fleming’s popular novel ( there was a live Us TV version of “Casino Royale” with Barry Nelson as “Jimmy” Bond broadcast in 1954): Dr. No. The series quickly become the main jewel in studio United Artists’ crown. As several pop-culture scholars have stated, the 60′s were the three B’s: Beatles, Batman, and Bond. While the lads from Liverpool broke up by the end of »

Kick-Ass 2 Is Better Than the Original Says Mark Millar

8 November 2012 8:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Along with giving an update on Matthew Vaughn directing Star Wars: Episode VII, Mark Millar also spoke about Kick-Ass 2 on his official website. Here's what he had to say, proclaiming that this follow-up is better than Kick-Ass.

"But Kick-Ass 2. What can I say? Let me tell you that yesterday as I was sitting in Eddie Hamilton's edit suite (think James Coburn's apartment in Our Man Flint). I literally for the first time thought this might actually be Better than the original. This was a huge moment for me because there is no bigger fan of the first movie than me. I think it's pretty close to perfect. But there's so much in this, the whole thing so rich, that I honestly think this might be the Empire Strikes Back to Star Wars. I'd seen over 40 mins before, but seeing the edited version of the next 20 mins »

Mark Millar is a very busy man and fortunately for him, the production for Kick-Ass 2 is in London, so he can pop in whenever he's needed. He wrote an extensive piece on his Millarworld forums about the shooting and editing process of the film. Take a look at an excerpt below.

Twelve Movies To Get You Through Election Day Blues

2 November 2012 4:02 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Election Day is just around the corner, and depending on your view of the current state of The Republic, you can look at that day in one of two ways:

It’s a national celebration of history’s greatest, most successful democracy, demonstrating our ability to freely choose our leadership and peacefully see the baton of power passed to the next man;

Or –

It’s a national embarrassment, history’s greatest, most successful democracy squandering it’s hard-won freedoms in a campaign for leadership poisoned by oversimplification, appeals to gut-level fears rather than the intellect, claims and charges plagued by inflation, distortion, and outright falsehood, and warped and distorted by the infusion of tens of millions of dollars from vested interests.

Either way, we still have to get through the day.

So, for those of you who just want to pull the shades and wait for the noise to die down, »

Adam Sandler’s Next Comedy Will Be ‘Ridiculous 6′

26 October 2012 3:36 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Adam Sandler’s next comedy is a western called Ridiculous 6, which he will co-write with frequent collaborator Tim Herlihy (Bedtime Stories, SNL).

There’s not much more we know about the film except that it’s filming in April 2013, and set for a Spring 2014 release date.

Though the plot details are vague, sources are saying it might be a parody of John Sturges’ 1960 film The Magnificent Seven, about seven gunfighters drafted to protect a Mexican town in time of need. The film starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Eli Wallach, Charles Bronson and James Coburn.

Ridiculous 6 was originally being developed at Sony, but moved over to Paramount Pictures.

Though Sandler’s latest movies haven’t been much very successful at the box office, studios still consider him a valuable (and bankable) star. Why else would they invest on a comedy Western, right? Filmmakers rarely touch that genre nowadays.

Adam Sandler’s Next: ‘Ridiculous 6′

25 October 2012 5:56 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: The title of Adam Sandler‘s next film will be Ridiculous 6, and it’s a comedy Western that Paramount Pictures has committed to put into production in April. This is the laffer that Sandler was going to make at Sony before Happy Madison Productions moved it to Paramount. The title is reminiscent of the 1960 United Artists pic The Magnificent Seven that starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn, the drama about seven gunfighters drafted to protect a Mexican town, so might this be a variation featuring inept gunslingers? The studio would not go beyond confirming the title and the terrain. Sandler is going to write it with Tim Herlihy, and he will star in it and produce with Happy Madison. The film is already slated for Spring Break weekend 2014. Reports are attributing the move from Sony as being caused by that studio’s fiscal shortcomings — is »

Tom Cruise Circles Sci-Fi Picture Our Name Is Adam

16 October 2012 7:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Tom Cruise is adding another potential project to his list with the spec script, Our Name is Adam. Few details are available on the content of the picture so far, save for it being in the sci-fi genre, which definitely fits in with Cruise's recent projects as he's currently filming the sci-fi tinged Oblivion and All You Need is Kill back to back. Producer Mary Parent (Pacific Rim) is attached to the picture written by T.S. Nowlin (Agent 13).  Although Cruise is attached to a number of projects, none of them seem to have risen to frontrunner status as of yet.  Hit the jump to see which one it could be. Variety reported that Cruise is circling Our Name is Adam, which could be his next picture.  Or not.  Take a look at what else the veteran has been eyeing as of late: A remake of The Magnificent Seven for MGM, »

Oscar Horrors: Innocence and "Monsters, Inc"

10 October 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here Lies... the Best Animated Feature nomination for Monsters, Inc. (2001) sent to an early grave by a big green ogre. Hi, Deborah from Basket of Kisses here. The Great Oscar Animation War of 2001/2002 was fought between innocence and jadedness, between sincerity and irony, between modernism and post-modernism, or, to put it plainly, between Monsters, Inc. and Shrek. (To be fair, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, was also in the race, but I don't know anyone who considered it a contender.) The winner, Shrek, announced a tragedy of 21st century humor, in which reference and winking has won out over wit and warmth. What? Do I sound bitter?

The film's Oscar-winning theme song would have you believe that the film is about friendship -- and Sully (John Goodman),  Mike (Billy Crystal), and Boo—are lovely -- but at heart, Monsters, Inc. is about a childhood so unspoiled that there are still monsters in the bedroom closet. »
