The Goonies Never Say Die This Weekend Midnights at The Tivoli!

12 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“C’mon Mikey, give me a lickery kiss!”

The Goonies (1985) plays this weekend (July 29th and 30th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

Four kids – Mikey (Sean Astin), Chunk (Jeff Cohen), Mouth (Corey Feldman) and Data (Ke Huy Quan) who call themselves “The Goonies” finds a map in the attic of Mikey’s house. Their beloved neighborhood is about to become a golf course, so they go out on an adventure to find lost buried treasure. Unfortunately, three crooks Mama Fratelli (Anne Ramsey) with her sons Jake (Robert Davi) and Francis (Joe Pantoliano) are also seeking the treasure.

One of the most beloved movies of the 80’s, The Goonies is a timeless adventure from director Richard Donner and producer Steven Spielberg that has stood the test of time.

The Goonies has youth, fun, and excitement by the truckload but also »

Anime Classic Akira Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

19 July 2016 2:39 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

You got a bad attitude, pops. Lighten up before your arteries harden!”

Akira (1988), considered one the classics of not just anime, but animation in general, plays this weekend (July 22nd and 23rd) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

Akira tells the tale of a secret military project that endangers Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psionic psychopath that only two kids and a group of psionics can stop. Got that? I confess I’ve never seen Akira. I’ve had plenty of opportunities, so I have no good excuse. Perhaps this weekend I’ll finally take it in.

I asked Brian Lan over at the St. Louis-based Anime fan group Fant-Asia St. Louis why Akira is such a classic and he said “Akira is certainly one of the anime that is most cited for bringing in new fans to anime. »

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – Goonies, The Room, Miyazaki, and More!

12 July 2016 9:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You’re tearing me apart Lisa!”

Another brilliant lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ for the remainder of Summer of 2016 season. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd with a couple of retro surprises. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. Looks like we have one Miyazaki (Princess Mononoke) which always draw good crowds. The oldest film this time is the Hitchcock classic from 1960 Psycho (if you didn’t get your Hitchcock fix with Rear Window this weekend) and the most recent appears to be The Room, the ineptly hilarious interactive crowd-pleaser starring Tommy Wiseau. We have not shown Enter The Dragon at midnight in many years and this will be the first time Event Horizon has ever played at the Tiv.

Studio Ghibli Animator Makiko Futaki: A Tribute

24 June 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After Studio Ghibli veteran Makiko Futaki died in May, Pixar’s animator-director Peter Sohn (“The Good Dinosaur”) agreed to write a tribute and discovered a personal style in re-examining her work.

Makiko Futaki lived a life of animation. She worked on films from Katsuhiro Otomo’s “Akira” to Hayao Miyazaki’s “Howl’s Moving Castle.”

To be honest, I did not know her work until I had heard of her unfortunate passing in May at the young age of 57. Her list of film credits were jaw dropping. She had injected her talent into many of the greatest films of all time.

Animation can be an invisible art form because it is so collaborative. It is sometimes hard to discern which animator animated what scene in a particular film, but after watching several films an animator drew moments for, one can begin to see a personal style.

Studio Ghibli Veteran Animator Makiko Futaki Dies at 57

29 May 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The animation world has lost a prodigious talent with the death of Makiko Futaki, a longtime Studio Ghibli animator who passed away on May 13 after an unspecified illness. Futaki collaborated on every one of Hayao Miyazaki's films, several of which are regarded as high-water marks of the entire genre: "My Neighbor Totoro," "Princess Mononoke," "Spirited Away" and many others. Futaki was 57 at the time of her passing. Read More: 'The Red Turtle' Trailer: Studio Ghibli Returns With A Mesmerizing Silent Film In addition to her work at Ghibli, which has been among the world's most foremost animation studios for decades, Futaki also served as key animator on 1988's "Akira." Katsuhiro Otomo's dystopian sci-fi anime is likewise considered among the best of its kind ever made. Futaki held the same credit on such films as "Howl's Moving Castle," "From Up on Poppy Hill" and "The Wind Rises." Read More: Watch: A Feminist. »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

“Fassbinder’s Top 10” offers Salò on Friday, Walsh‘s The Naked and the Dead & Visconti‘s The Damned on Saturday, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes on Sunday. All are on 35mm.

Roman Polanski‘s Frantic shows this Sunday, as does Ashes and Embers.

Watch Studio Ghibli’s Latest Project and a Documentary on the Making of ‘Princess Mononoke’

16 March 2016 1:14 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Before premiering their first foreign co-production, The Red Turtle, later this year with France’s Wild Bunch, Studio Ghibil brings us a short and sweet adaptation of ancient picture scrolls that are often considered the first example of manga. Entitled Chōjū-jinbutsu-giga, it, over the course of 30 seconds, “seeks to highlight ecological issues that the the modern world is quick to forget about” through the interactions of a frog and rabbit as some mice observe. [Mashable]

After you’re done with that — it really won’t take so long — look back on one of the studio’s most acclaimed films in an eight-minute making-of video. This subject is Hayao Miyazaki‘s Princess Mononoke, and, while brief, the video covers much of the intention behind that film’s creation, from the staggering requirements behind creating animation cels to Quentin Tarantino‘s unexpected role in helping its English dub come to fruition.

Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay Details Hayao Miyazaki's Decades-Long Journey To Bring 'Princess Mononoke' To Life

15 March 2016 2:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Trying to decide which Studio Ghibli movie is the most beautiful is a losing battle, but The Film Theorist make a convincing case for why “Princess Mononoke,” the studio’s labor-of-love 1997 historical action-fantasy epic, might take the prize. Director and Ghibli grandmaster Hayao Miyazaki’s inspiration for the fable began in the late '70s, towards the beginning of his lavish career in the director’s chair, before he would ever get the courage or insistence to follow through on the grandiose vision that swam inside his head for nearly two decades. But initial concepts, designs, characters and story elements wound up making their way into 1988’s “My Neighbor Totoro” instead — what I’d consider the Japanese’s studio highest achievement — and this video, appropriately titled “Princess Mononoke: Decades of Struggle,” digs into how the animation master house would eventually bring their director’s most lavish vision onto the big screen. »

Watch: A Feminist Guide to the Kick-Ass Women of Studio Ghibli

5 January 2016 9:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 'Only Yesterday' Trailer Brings Studio Ghibli Masterpiece to America for First Time in 25 Years Aside from creating some of the most splendid animation in cinema, the films from Studio Ghibli have also been noted for their progressive social consciousness. From "Nausicaä" onwards, they have touched upon a wide range of subjects, from racism to environmentalism to feminism. This time around, Miyazaki's deep feminist undertones are put under the microscope in this new video essay assembled by the folks over at The Mary Sue.  As they carefully lay out in the video, Studio Ghibli has always relied heavily on strong female protagonists. In sharp contrast to the Disney princesses, who are almost always waiting for a charming young prince to sweep them off their feet, the studio presents its women as fierce and independent, never in need of a man to define who they are.
