Daily | Tim Burton and Big Eyes

19 December 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Almost inconceivably, the director of such macabre fantasies as Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas manages to turn his subject's populist kitsch into a humdrum, paint-by-numbers portrait of midcentury Americana," writes Matt Brennan, reviewing Tim Burton's Big Eyes at Slant. For Variety's Justin Chang, Amy Adams’s "affecting performance" as artist Margaret Keane is countered by "an outlandish, ogre-like turn from Christoph Waltz that increasingly seems to hold the movie hostage." We're collecting more reviews, video and overviews of Burton's career. » - David Hudson »

Interview: Tim Burton Talks Making 'Big Eyes,' Going Digital, The "Disturbing" Process Of 'Alice In Wonderland' & More

18 December 2014 9:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tim Burton has gotten very good at placing his easily identifiable stamp on a number of high profile studio projects. And with good reason. His 3D "Alice in Wonderland" made over a billion dollars worldwide and even supposed flops like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (which he didn't direct but has his name above the title) have proven to be merchandising juggernauts down the line. But with "Big Eyes," Burton returns to small scale, independent filmmaking for the first time in 20 years, following 1994's "Ed Wood." Like "Ed Wood," "Big Eyes" is a true story, and he collaborated once again with screenwriters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, this time to tell the story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), whose husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) took credit for her famous and fabulously popular paintings. We got to sit down with Burton to discuss what drew him to the project, his switch to digital, »

Our Favorite Non-Traditional Holiday Movies

15 December 2014 9:16 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

You want to celebrate the holidays, but want to do it a little differently? Cinelinx presents this list of our favorite non-traditional holiday films. 

It’s a fact. TV networks love the holiday season. It’s their chance to program endless Christmas Story reruns and James Bond marathons. More importantly, it’s a time when the whole family is at home and sitting down in front of the TV. Let’s say you’re tired of the normal selection of holiday films that cycle throughout the day on TV. You’re tired of hearing “Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings!”. You’ve had enough of Macaulay Culkin’s self-defense antics, and Ralphie just maybe deserves to get his tongue stuck to that pole. You are very familiar with how many sizes too small the Grinch’s heart is, and maybe Frosty the snowman is just another migraine waiting to happen. »

Monday Movie Memo: It Just Isn't Christmas Until I Have Watched This

15 December 2014 7:21 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Do you know how many shopping days you have left until Christmas? You probably don.t want to know. So many of you are probably still busy decking the halls and trimming your trees (and the idea of facing a crowded shopping mall is daunting right about now). But there.s one movie scene that manages to instantly put me in the holiday mood, and I talk about amazing Christmas scenes in this week.s Monday Movie Memo: There.s something positively magical about the song and sequence "What.s This?" in Henry Selick.s macabre The Nightmare Before Christmas. The song is delightful on its own. But the way that the scene is lit . so warm, with such a glow that.s in contrast to the Halloween Town sequences . that instantly make me feel like we have a window into The North Pole.

8 December 2014 10:49 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

While most holiday movies feature warm, cuddly characters and can sometimes be too wholesome to handle, there's one seasonal movie that turns the holiday on its head: The Nightmare Before Christmas. Tim Burton's '90s classic is gorgeous, poignant, and it makes Christmas a little creepy - but in a good way. Here are all the ways the animated flick is essential viewing for the holiday season. »

Our Favorite Traditional Christmas Movies

8 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This time of year there's no shortage of tradiontional holiday flicks floating around on TV to help get you in the Christmas Spirit.  Watching these films go hand-in-hand with the season and the Cinelinx crew is breaking down some of our favorites and why it simply isn't Christmas until we've watched them! 

The holidays are a special time of the year that brings people together. Tasty meals are cooked up, joyful music plays on the radio, and magical films play on TV. It is a time to make memories and enjoy the company of friends and family. Due to all this activity, the holidays can also be a stressful time of year. Sometimes we need a little help to get in the mood and see how endearing the season can be. Sometimes we need a reminder of what makes this time of year special and fun. 

That’s where movies come in. »

Tech Support: Can Alexandre Desplat land three Oscar nominations for original score?

4 December 2014 2:36 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Academy Award for Best Original Score is one of the categories I find most interesting and most frustrating. First, the good: I love the awarding of film music, which can immeasurably improve the experience of a film and can become iconic in its own right. There is also much about the music branch that I love, particularly its international flavor, both in terms of the composers cited and the types of music rewarded. Moreover, while the category tends to favor Best Picture nominees and epic movies, it is not excessively exclusionary in this respect. But that love of epics can sometimes lead to simply rewarding "most music." More importantly, this branch is infamously insular. Unless a composer is aboard a major Best Picture contender or has otherwise composed a simply iconic score, it is unusual to earn a first nomination. And even those features are not always enough for first-timers. »

‘Elf’ Animated Spin-Off Gets A ‘Big Bang’ From Jim Parsons

29 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Better known as the prickly and inaccessible Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons is going to open up and let the magic of Christmas fill his heart like a basement with a drainage problem as he takes the lead voice role in Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas. This appears to be a retelling of the original Elf story, as shown in the 2003 movie. That put star Will Ferrell on the map and rapidly became a mainstay of many a seasonal DVD collection, so producers NBC are hoping some fairy dust will rub off on this spin-off project.

The best present for animation fans is that the special will be stop motion, a much-loved technique that has fallen into decline in recent years as studios favour slick CGI. Achieved by photographing poseable models one painstaking inch at a time, the key example here is arguably Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. »

Mason Disick had a birthday party straight out of a movie on Saturday. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's son, who turns 5 in December, was surrounded by his mom's famous sisters, including Khloé Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, at an early celebration in La. Complete with Christmas trees covered in spiderwebs, the picture-perfect party captured the mood of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. In a series of Instagram snaps, the group showed off the festive decorations and face makeup, courtesy of artist Joyce Bonelli. It's been about six months since reports of Kourtney's third child with Scott emerged.

The following month, she revealed her growing baby bump while treating her children, Mason and Penelope, to a day at the pumpkin patch. Meanwhile, Kourtney's sister Kendall »

The Kardashians sure love Halloween. The reality stars kept things spooky weeks after the horror-filled holiday to throw Kourtney Kardashian's son Mason an early birthday party Saturday. (He turns 5 on Dec. 14.) It seems the expectant mom was inspired by the family's trip to Disneyland: Friend and makeup artist Joyce Bonelli helped transform the guests into creepy characters from Tim Burton's classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Kendall and Kylie Jenner both attended, but it was Koko (Khloé Kardashian) who really went all out for Mason. The dedicated aunt rocked a long red wig and fully painted face to go as the movie's heroine. »
