The writer we didn't get for Christmas

24 December 2010 2:49 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

You see some odd things looking at web-stats for a site, but there's usually a reason if you dig in a little. The other day I was curious why one of John Bensalhia's excellent thrice-weekly Doctor Who reviews had a peculiar hit-spike. Looking into how it was listed at Google News provides the likeliest answer...

All I can say is that it ought to be true, at least at some or other 'geek' site. The eccentric singer-songwriter was a very public TV and movies geek decades before the term 'geek chic' was invented. A huge swathe of Kate Bush's work is either based directly on movies, TV or books, includes references to such things or actually has a strong cinematic ambition.

The 1978 No.1 'Wuthering Heights' was inspired by the last ten minutes of Robert Fuest's 1970 adaptation of the Emily Bronte classic; the 1979 single 'Hammer Horror' is »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray: Salt, Easy A, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Devil, and More

21 December 2010 6:18 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Salt Salt barrels forward at a relentless pace, and stops only for the most perfunctory of emotional beats. You know they're emotional beats because somber music plays in the background while characters gaze longingly at each other. 30 seconds of that, and it's back to more running, car hopping and violently-inflicted bodily injury. None of the action is especially impressive or inspired, but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in sheer volume. The mystery of Evelyn Salt is meant to keep the audience on their toes as the action unfolds, but it's all so ludicrous and predictable; if there is a compelling mystery at the core of Salt, it's learning just how much casual ass-kickery »

The Five Best Disney Films

25 November 2010 12:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In spite of having grown up as a part of the Disney “VHS Generation”, one of the first groups of children to have the privilege and opportunity to enjoy nearly every Disney classic in the comfort of my home on demand, I don’t have much nostalgia for my childhood favourites. They still have a special place in my heart because they undeniably have a hand in the person I have become, but they have since been replaced by other Disney films I didn’t necessarily appreciate as a child.

I have my qualms with Disney, none of which I plan on getting into right here, but I can appreciate many of their films for their artistry and heartfelt sentiment. This list does not reflect the tastes and impulses of my childhood self, but the obsessions and preferences of my young adulthood. That isn’t to say there isn’t any nostalgia involved, »

Alan Menken discusses 'Tangled' and the past, present, and future of the animated musical

24 November 2010 7:05 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Alan Menken has won more Oscars — eight! — than anybody else alive. And no wonder. When you think of the smash hits that revived Walt Disney Animation, starting with The Little Mermaid in 1989 and continuing with Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, it’s impossible to separate the movies from the music. “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” “Be Our Guest,” “Friend Like Me,” “A Whole New World” — they’re the stuff high school glee clubs are made of. Menken, with lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, gave us all of these ear confections, winning over audiences and the Academy in the process. »

Back to Basics with Universal Studios

16 November 2010 5:29 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Over the last few weeks, we've been going "Back to Basics" by looking at the horror films produced by Universal Studios. After my previous post, I realized that before we dive into anymore of the horrors created for us by Universal, I really should set the stage and provide a little background information on the studio itself. We'll be looking at James Whale's 1935 masterwork, Bride of Frankenstein, next. But, until then, let's go back and take a look at where it all began.

Before there was Universal Studios, there was Carl Laemmle. Laemmle was born in 1867 and emigrated with his family from Germany to the United States in 1884. Soon after he arrived, Laemmle became entranced with a wondrous new technology and art form: moving pictures. At that time, nickelodeons were all the rage, and Laemmle was so mesmerized by motion pictures that he soon left behind his bookkeeping career »

Don Hahn interview: Beauty And The Beast, Howard Ashman, The Lion King, South Park and Frankenweenie

2 November 2010 10:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Producer Don Hahn looks back at Beauty And The Beast, and chats to us about The Lion King, Tim Burton, the genius of Howard Ashman, and a whole lot more.

"We're going to need another three hours," joked producer Don Hahn as time was called on our chat in London earlier this year. He wasn't kidding. A fascinating, engaging and open man, who was at the heart of the Disney animation revival of the late 80s and 1990s (to the point where he's made a documentary about it, Waking Sleeping Beauty), Hahn was in town to talk about the new disc release of Beauty And The Beast. But heck, did we squeeze in a lot more chat...

The first thing that always struck me with Beauty And The Beast is just how much storytelling it contracts into the first ten minutes of the film. And it's not all light stuff, »

Cartoon movies are having a hard time getting “G” ratings these days

18 October 2010 9:39 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

HollywoodNews.com: “The Lion King” had a major character’s father being murdered onscreen, another major character being eaten alive by hyenas, and a young child snuggling up beside the corpse of the above-mentioned recently deceased father. “Tarzan” opened with a blood-stained cabin containing two corpses and an infant being eaten alive off screen, and it ended with the onscreen shooting death of a major character and the hanging of the lead villain. “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” had an onscreen neck-breaking murder of a young mother, the attempted drowning of her baby, and an entire subplot involving the villain’s need to desire to screw and/or murder the heroine because of his guilt-ridden lustings for her that felt like a cross between “Schindler’s List” and “Sweeney Todd” (great movie and great song… why don’t they make kids toys that sing “Hellfire?”).

Donna Murphy is "Mother Gothel"

29 September 2010 10:05 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

If you don't just skip the occasional theater post on The Film Experience you may know of my love of Tony winner Donna Murphy. She has what might be her most significant screen role ever this very year. 'But what they want from her is....her voice.' She is playing Mother Gothel, the villainess of Disney's Tangled. She's the one who grounded Rapunzel, like, forever. [Okay, stop gagging. I know the juvenilia of the Tangled marketing has been entirely off-putting but let's stay positive for two minutes.]

Here's the first image release of Mother Gothel, just released.

Tangled's song score -- eight new songs the soundtrack is out in November the week before the movie -- is by Alan Menken so we hope against hope that the songs will be good and some of his past work is very good indeed. Lately it hasn't been quite so magical but at the very least a Menken score would have to be preferrable to the pop-song laden trailer music which led us »

Alan Menken Exclusive Interview Tangled

27 September 2010 11:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Although I took a break for Fantastic Fest, I had promised all the interviews from my visit to Walt Disney Animation Studios earlier this month. So, here is my one-on-one with the legendary Alan Menken, who wrote the music for Tangled and worked in the golden age of Disney animation in the early ‘90s. Join me after the break for the full transcript and a few highlights.

Right off the bat, I want to say that Menken was a pleasure to talk with and had a calm, grounded demeanor about him. I asked him everything I could think of, and he gives updates on his upcoming projects as well. Now for the highlights:

What era inspired the music for Tangled?

He states that folk music was the main influence, and Joni Mitchell was a big factor

Did he always have the passion to be a composer?

He started out as a pre-med at Nyu, »

Pixar’s Brave Logo

23 September 2010 8:45 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Disney have revealed the official logo for the new CGI animated Pixar film Brave (formerly titled The Bear and The Bow).

Brave is Pixar’s first fairy tale, from acclaimed filmmaker/writer Brenda Chapman (The Prince of Egypt). Chapman began as an additional animation artist on Who Framed Roger Rabbit and contributed story for The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Fantasia 2000, Chicken Run and Cars.

The film centers on a character named Merida (Reese Witherspoon), an impetuous, tangle-haired daughter of royalty, who would prefer to make her mark as a great archer. When a clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, she unleashes unintended peril on her father’s kingdom and her mother’s life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right. »

Maureen O’Hara on TCM: The Quiet Man, The Black Swan

17 August 2010 4:49 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara in John Ford‘s The Quiet Man (top); Tyrone Power, Maureen O’Hara in Henry King‘s The Black Swan (bottom) Maureen O’Hara is Turner Classic Movies‘ "Star of the Day" today, Aug. 17, as TCM continues with its "Summer Under the Stars" series. [Maureen O'Hara TCM schedule.] I was stunned by Maureen O’Hara’s beauty when I saw her as Esmeralda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame way back when (no, not 1939). I was just as stunned by how poor her performance was in that film. My opinion of O’Hara’s thespian know-how has remained mixed at best. It’s not just that her acting usually consists of looking both icy and fiery — admittedly, something that is probably harder to accomplish than one might think. But I’d say that the chief problem for anyone trying to evaluate her acting capabilities is that for the most »

New 'Hunchback' Writers Defend Themselves

19 July 2010 12:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

It is an immediate, knee-jerk response for me to be cynical towards new projects announced by Hollywood these days. But despite my admission that too much negativity is unhealthy (for both fans and the industry), it does allow me to be more surprised and excited when something proves me wrong. And I certainly appreciate when filmmakers call us bloggers out on the cynicism, as did screenwriters Will Block and Jake Emanuel, who are working on that new action/comedy version if The Hunchback of Notre Dame I wrote about last week.

In an interview with an old friend at Moviefone's Inside Movies, while recognizing that it's and honor and a hazing ritual to be made fun of by us, they take Cinematical and others to task by defending their script and the idea behind it, partly by reminding us of great recent reboots (The Dark Knight and Star Trek) and »
