Legend Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole Blu-ray Review

28 December 2010 4:24 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Zack Snyder. A CG animated owl movie. Holy crap, did that actually happen? Yes it did, it’s that movie with the terrible name Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. It’s based on a kid’s book, but still. The story of a young owl named Soren (voiced by Jim Sturgess) who’s stolen with his siblings to be a slave for the “Pure Ones” headed by Metalbeak (Joel Edgerton) and his wife Nyra (Helen Mirren), but Soren’s destined to be a great owl, and perhaps savior. Abbie Cornish, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Richard Roxburgh, Hugo Weaving, and David Wenham are also feature voice performers. The review of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole on Blu-ray follows after the jump. It takes about a half hour to fall in with the film, as owls are weird creatures to personify. But that’s all the set-up. »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole’ Wastes Talent

27 December 2010 2:17 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The best parts of a Zack Snyder picture have consistently been the opening title sequences, from “Dawn of the Dead”’s apocalyptic montage to “Watchmen”’s brilliant prologue scored to Bob Dylan’s “The Time They Are A-Changin’.” Snyder’s latest problematic novel adaptation, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” is no exception.

The film kicks off with a promising opening shot from an owl’s perspective, soaring through the air to show off the spectacular work of the animators. Billowing clouds, breathtaking waterfalls, and towering trees provide the photogenic framework for the gorgeously lensed owls, and for a fleeting moment, the film succeeds in capturing the exhilarating freedom of flight. Yet the film instantly falls apart once the owls open their beaks and celebrity voices come tumbling out.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

More than any recent computer animated adventure, “Ga’Hoole” begs the question: why go »

Kieran Darcy-Smith Begins Production On Say Nothing, Starring Joel Edgerton

23 December 2010 3:10 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

With the successes of The Square, Hesher and Animal Kingdom behind them it's clear that Australia's Blue Tongue Films have become one of the world's premiere sources for smart, edgy fare. And the latest project to rise from the group is Say Nothing, the directorial debut of Kieran Darcy-Smith.

Shooting now in Cambodia, the picture stars Joel Edgerton - soon to be seen as the lead in The Thing - and Teresa Palmer in what promises to be a dark thriller.

Blu-ray Review: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole

19 December 2010 11:54 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole didn’t receive a kind reception from critics when it first hit theaters. The story about two child owls who get separated from their family only to engage in a Cain and Abel story did not resonate well in the hearts of adults.

Perhaps that’s because Director Zack Snyder (Superman: Man of Steel, Sucker Punch) and screenwriters John Orloff (Anonymous) and Emil Stern (Tenderness) did not intend for it to be an overly gritty film in the vein of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Instead, the team set out to service the original novel series of Kathryn Lasky as best they could. They do so to modest success. The soul of the story, a young owl that triumphs over great adversity is still there, which will be enough to hit home with younger audiences. However, some key details were »

Nyfcc's 2010 Wins: "The Social Kids That Are All Right Network"

13 December 2010 11:31 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The New York Film Critics Circle forms, together with Lafca (Los Angeles Film Critics Association) and the Nsfc* (National Society of Film Critics), the holy trinity** of critics awards. La & NY combined can be a potent influential mix... not that they often agree. But this year they did, further underlining the dominance of The Social Network this awards season. The other big boost went to The Kids Are All Right, Lisa Cholodenko's warmly funny family-at-crossroads film, which picked up three major wins (Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplay)

Picture The Social Network

Director David Fincher for The Social Network

Actress Annette Bening for The Kids Are All Right

Actor Colin Firth for The King's Speech

We already knew that Best Actress was shaping up to be a Bening vs. Portman showdown. But it was not confirmed in a neatly bi-coastal way since Portman did not take Lafca yesterday. She wasn't even runner-up. »

Australian Crime Drama Animal Kingdom Sweeps The AFI Awards

12 December 2010 10:14 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Awards season is upon us and Australia have just handed out their biggest prizes with happy results, indeed, for David Michôd's Sundance winner Animal Kingdom.

Nominated for a whopping eighteen awards Animal Kingdom took ten of them including Best Film, Best Direction (Michôd), Best Screenplay (Michôd), Best Lead Actor (Ben Mendelsohn), Best Supporting Actor (Joel Edgerton), and Best Lead Actress (Jacki Weaver).

Weaver today was also awarded Best Supporting Actress by the La Film Critic's Association so this bodes well for the Aussie veteran leading in to the big Us awards.

Frankly every single one of these awards is richly deserved. This is a flat out fantastic film that deserved a hell of a lot more love than it received on its Us release and my guess is you'll see it on more than one of our own Best Of lists here at Twitch over the next couple weeks. »

Animal Kingdom's AFI Sweep

12 December 2010 3:54 PM, PST | FilmInk.com.au | See recent FilmInk.com.au news »

David Michôd's Animal Kingdom may have scooped awards for Best Film, Best Direction and Best Original Screenplay at this year's AFI Awards, but many of the filmmakers isolated the work of Best Actor winner, Ben Mendelsohn.   Best Actress (and Oscar hopeful) Jacki Weaver singled out Mendelsohn in her speech, and Best Supporting Actor Joel Edgerton later said it was an ‘honour' to work with the long-time Australian actor.    "I think he is very special. I did my first ever job with him when I was 20 years old. I did an episode of Police Rescue playing his younger brother; I was very excited then," Edgerton said. »

Teresa Palmer Interview I Am Number Four; Plus Updates on Take Me Home Tonight and Kieran Darcy-Smith’s Say Nothing

7 December 2010 10:53 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While moviegoers have seen a lot of Teresa Palmer over the past few years in films such as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Bedtime Stories, for her upcoming sci-fi action thriller I Am Number Four, we’re going to see a new side: action star.  That’s because in director D.J. Caruso’s upcoming movie (produced by Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay), Palmer plays a mysterious outsider who eventually kicks some serious ass on screen.

A few months ago I got to visit the set of I Am Number Four while the production was shooting in Pittsburgh (read about it here).  On set I was able to do a roundtable interview with Palmer (click here to read) where she talked about the challenges of getting ready to film all the action and she also revealed who she plays in the movie and why it’s a cool part.  But with the new trailer getting released, »
