Fantasia 2016: ‘Red Christmas’ review

24 July 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Red Christmas review

Hardly the kind of Christmas Bing Crosby was singing about, Red Christmas takes great delight in desecrating the jolliest time of year. Craig Anderson’s feature debut is a wonderful mix of oxymorons and devilish twists on what we’ve come to expect from something that should be as simple as your regular slasher film. Christmas and horror just seem to go so well together, and maybe we have Dickens and lots of twisted european folklore to thank for that. Even family friendly stuff such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Muppets Christmas Carol, don’t shy away from injecting fear into the season of goodwill to all men. But besides being horror, Red Christmas also wants slices of the comedy and social commentary pie.

We begin at an abortion clinic protest, where an explosion killed many doctors and patients. However, one child survived their abortion and »

From ‘The Bfg’ to ‘Matilda’: How 5 Roald Dahl Books Landed on the Big Screen

29 June 2016 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roald Dahl famously loathed all the movie adaptations of his books, including the 1971 classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” starring Gene Wilder. So when the beloved author died in 1990, his widow Felicity (who goes by Liccy) was torn about what to do with his catalogue. It was a time, following the hit comedy “Home Alone,” where the major studios were vigorously chasing family-friendly tales, and many of Dahl’s stories fit the bill. But Liccy didn’t want celebrated bestsellers such as “Matilda” or “James and the Giant Peach” falling into the wrong hands.

Dahl’s publisher at Penguin Books set up a few meetings, and she eventually connected with literary agent Michael Siegel. They bonded right away. “I don’t want there to be bad movies,” Liccy told him. They came up with an unorthodox, boutique approach. “Rather than sell the stories directly to the studios, we would »

From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

Disney goes mad with 'live-action remake' power, wants to do This classic next

26 May 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm sure Disney had already been considering it for a while but perhaps they're more serious about a live-action The Little Mermaid now that they've seen how interested the public is in their Beauty and the Beast. Seriously, though. In just 24 hours, the first teaser trailer for Disney's Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson (of Harry Potter fame) topped Star Wars: Force Awakens for views. Now, they're both Disney products so it's not really a competition but it does say something about what audiences are clamoring for and Disney is ready to capitalize. Deadline reports: Execs at Disney are in the early stages of reviving Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid as a live-action feature. Disney production chiefs recently heard a new take and are currently evaluating whether to proceed with the idea. Deadline understands that initial discussions have also taken place with major producers, including some »

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice: Burton-themed bar opens in New York

29 April 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The director’s film work has been translated into cocktail format – and the gothed-up customers seemed to be finding it just as potent

There was an atmosphere of cheerful chaos at the unofficial opening of Beetle House, a Tim Burton-themed bar in New York’s East Village, on Wednesday night.

An actor dressed as Beetlejuice – one of the idiosyncratic director’s most famous creations – greeted customers at the door with a stream of crude innuendo, while inside, the patrons – mostly female, many dressed in goth or Beetlejuice-themed clothing – sat up at the crowded bar drinking cocktails such as Jack Skellington (a reference to The Nightmare Before Christmas), the Fleet Street Martini (Sweeney Todd), or the Big Fish Bowl, or at tables surrounded by artwork and bric a brac evoking his films.

Tim Burton Inspired Beetlejuice Bar Opens in New York

26 April 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Beetlejuice is getting his own bar! And if you say your drink order three times, it will appear before you. Welcome to Beetle House in New York. It is a fine drinking and dining establishment that has been inspired by the iconic director Tim Burton, his 1988 classic Beetlejuice and some of the other movies he has unleashed upon the world.

Beetle House is getting ready for its big grand opening in New York City's East Village later this year. You can visit the bar's official website here. It reveals that both the food being served and the drinks on hand will pay direct homage to the work of Tim Burton. While the bar very much looks like a juke joint where you might find the Ghost with the Most on his off-hours, that is certainly not the only movie being represented.

A quick glance at the cocktail menu reveals such »

Disney Animated Classics Get Reimagined as Tim Burton Movies

2 February 2016 8:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Burton and Disney have a long-standing relationship. He was, after all, notoriously fired by Disney while making the 1984 black & white short Frankenweenie, which would later become a feature-length Stop-Motion adventure for the studio. Before that, he worked as an uncredited animator on the 1981 classic The Fox and the Hound and the live-action 1982 sci-fi cult classic Tron. He has since reunited with the studio to direct the live-action blockbuster smash hit Alice in Wonderland in 2010. And in 2018, he will bestow the world with his live-action/CGI adaptation of Dumbo. But now, one enterprising artist as set out to discover what 10 classic Disney animated movies may have looked like with Tim Burton steering the wheel.

Andrew Tarusov, an artist and animator from Moscow, has designed a special set of movie posters. These ten images even include Dumbo as they set out to reimagine and recreate some of the greatest animated movies of all time. »

Interview with Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson, Co-directors of Anomalisa

16 January 2016 8:29 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Academy Award-nominated Anomalisa (Best Animated Feature) tells the story of Michael Stone (David Thewlis), husband, father, respected author, and a man crippled by what he considers a mundane life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he’s scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, he checks into the Fregoli Hotel. There, he is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Profoundly emotional, introspective, and stunning, Anomalisa is a film unlike any you will see this year and certainly one of the best.

The film is co-directed by Charlie Kaufman (who also wrote the screenplay) and Duke Johnson. Charlie Kaufman is best known for writing films such as Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; he also made his feature-directing debut with 2008’s Synecdoche, New York. »
