Votd: Hayao Miyazaki films come together in new 3D tribute

3 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement following his film, The Wind Rises, and it is tough to see a master like that go, but it seems like his fans are staying together to tribute the Japanese animator.

Vimeo user dono created a tribute to Miyazaki, which combines all of his films in a insanely cool 3D world that makes you feel like you’re flying between them. Set to the score by Joe Hisaishi for Spirited Away, the video takes a look at Miyazaki’s films such as Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, and Castle in the Sky.

As a giant fan of Miyazaki’s work, it was almost emotional seeing this tribute that seemed to re-imagine the characters in a connected world and allowed you to be reminded of all the great work that he did (plus how amazing Hisaishi’s score is).

Using 3D settings, the tribute includes the 2D characters from films like "Kiki's Delivery Service" and "My Neighbor Tortoro." Some of Miyazaki's characters from his shorts and TV series are also featured alongside his more well-known characters.  Take a ride through Miyazaki's world, courtesy of Vimeo user dono, in the tribute below.

“I got the results of the test back – I definitely have breast cancer!”

The Room  screens Midnights This Weekend at the Tivoli – with Tommy Wiseau in Person! – as part of the Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight Series. All seats $15.00, no passes.

There will be thousands of plastic spoons flying through the air in the Tivoli’s main screen this weekend. Grown men in tuxedoes will be throwing footballs three feet away from each other in the Tivoli’s lobby. What’s going on and who will that strange man with the sunglasses, odd accent and black stringy hair be that everyone will be crowded around?

Forget Ant-Man! The wait is almost over. The St. Louis movie event of the summer is this weekend! Our city is bracing itself for the arrival of the one and only Tommy Wiseau! St. Louis-area fans of The Room will have the opportunity to meet the film’s talented, »

Jurassic Park The Original! – Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

19 July 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“T-Rex doesn’t want to be fed. He wants to hunt. Can’t just suppress 65 million years of gut instinct.”

Jurassic Park (1993) screens midnights this weekend (July 24th and 25th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

Upon its initial release Jurassic Park made $920 million worldwide (in 1993 dollars) at the box office. And now it’s back, at the Tivoli midnights this weekend as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

The movie itself certainly holds up. In 1993, Jurassic Park did for monster movies what King Kong had originally done in 1933. It combines the new (at the time) visual effects technology of CG with a fantastic story and great characters to create a dizzying exciting movie packed with action, scares, intrigue, drama and humor. It was Spielberg doing what he does better than just about anybody – creating pure cinematic »

Hayao Miyazaki creates an animated short after retiring from feature-length filmmaking

13 July 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After retiring from feature-length films and closing Studio Ghibli this past November, Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki is making a CG animated short film for the Ghibli Museum in Japan. According to the Anime News Network, his son, Goro Miyazaki, made the announcement at a talk show event in June. This will be the first time that Miyazaki will be venturing into CG animation after hand drawing all of his films. The story for the short film has yet to be revealed and while being 10 minutes long, the film has taken three years to make.

Most Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki fans are probably still upset that there are no more films coming from them, especially since they both created many masterpieces together such as Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, just to name a few. But this news just shows that there is still great work to come from Miyazaki. »

“Here’s Johnny!” The Shining Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

12 July 2015 7:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in. Not by the hair of your chiny-chin-chin? Well then I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!”

The Shining (1980) screens midnights this weekend (July 17th and 18th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, The Shining (based on the Stephen King novel) creates some of the most genuine spine chills ever filmed. Taking a job as a winter caretaker for a giant and remote hotel, Jack Nicholson, his wife Shelley Duvall, and his son Danny Lloyd, find that the long hallways and empty rooms contain more than a few ghosts. The film goes back and forth from scary to amusing as Jack, meticulously pacing his part, slowly turns into a psychopath, taking an axe to his loved ones. Kubrick’s use of space »

Studio Ghibli’s penultimate film is a beautiful, melancholic fairytale, while Roy Andersson finds a perverse hope in life’s futility

If Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli hadn’t indefinitely shuttered its production wing last year, the recent 30th anniversary might have been a sweeter celebration. This week offers at least one happy return, however, in their rapturous penultimate feature, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (StudioCanal, U) – a reminder of the signature artistry we might lose if the halt proves permanent and their far-from-exhausted capacity for creative exploration.

Veteran director Isao Takahata’s farewell film a typically lovely outing from Ghibli, but it’s far from typical in other senses: the whispery lyricism of its folkloric storytelling, as soft and spry as its pastel-sketch animation style, is miles removed from the dense felt-tip fantasy of Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away, though no less vivid. Drawn from a 10th-century fairytale about a reluctant princess, »

Comic-Con: Her Universe Fashion Show celebrates apparel for fangirls

10 July 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Joker, Sailor Moon and nerdy ladies were the big winners at the Her Universe Fashion Show last night. It’s an event where strutting down the runway were women wearing a Greek goddess-esque dress version of Groot, an elegant winter coat modeled after the Tardis, and a frock with a skirt shaped and detailed to look like the Death Star, among other high fashion takes on characters beloved by nerdy fans. In its second year at San Diego Comic-Con, the fashion show crowned two winners from the 25 finalists who submitted “geek couture” designs to Her Universe, the sci-fi fashion apparel company behind the event. The judging panel-selected winner was a design called “Joker’s New Look,” designed and modeled by Kelly Cercone. The attendee-voted top prize went to a “Sailor Moon” design called “Usagi’s Transformation,” which was designed by Leetal Platt and modeled by fan-favorite cosplayer Chloe Dykstra. »

“He’ll Be Back!” The Original The Terminator Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

5 July 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“I’m here to help you. I’m Reese. Sergeant Tech-Com, DN38416. Assigned to protect you. You’ve been targeted for termination!”

The Terminator (1984) screens midnights this weekend (July 10th and 11th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

Who would have thought a low budget science fiction movie aptly named The Terminator would be so iconic 30 years later as well as start the meteoric rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a legend in cinema, introduce director James Cameron to Hollywood as a force to be reckoned with, give a new meaning to audiences with the immortal line “I’ll be back”, spawn a large fan base, and then witness the birth of a big-budget saga with an even bigger sequel in 1991 that outdoes the first movie with Terminator 2 Judgement Day and then continue on with Terminator Rise Of The MacHines in 2003, Terminator Salvation »

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – Jurassic Park, The Room, Zardoz

4 July 2015 9:08 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You’Re Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!”

Another great lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ for late July through early September. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd and a couple of retro surprises are to be found. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. When I was that age, in the early ’80s, midnight standards included A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Graduate (1967), Night Of The Living Dead (1968), King Of Hearts (1966), and Harold And Maude (1971). Those last two haven’t shown in many years. King Of Hearts especially seems to have fallen off the cult movie radar , so imagine my surprise when I saw that the Tivoli had Harold And Maude as part of their new line-up. That’ll be some old school midnight fun »

Song Of The Sea: how an animated treat was made

3 July 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at how director Tomm Moore created the Oscar-nominated animation Song Of The Sea, and how the Irish landscape inspired it...

Walking along Ventry beach in south west island, it's easy to see how a filmmaker might be inspired by the spectacular landscape: the rolling hills and craggy rocks, the overwhelming air of tranquillity. But the inspiration for animator Tomm Moore's new film, the Oscar-nominated Song Of The Sea, was inspired by a less than tranquil experience.

About a decade ago, Moore was staying on holiday in the nearby town of Dingle, and visited Ventry beach with his 10-year-old son. To their horror, they found the beach littered with the bodies of dead grey seals. Reports at the time suggested that local fishermen, who blamed the seals for dwindling fish stocks, were responsible for the cull.

Spirited Away – The Blu Review

1 July 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can’t remember.“

A beloved film from the brilliant Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release.

People call Hiyao Miyazaki the Japanese Disney and Spirited Away from 2001 is considered one of his very best, if not his masterpiece. The film starts like a fairly typical take on Alice in Wonderland or Narnia. A girl is bought into a fantasy world and has to find her way back. But Miyazaki takes it even further. His heroine, ten year old Chihiro is a typically modern girl, upset about moving into a new home and afraid of new changes in her life. But after her parents take a detour into a strange tunnel she finds herself trapped and worst of all, her parents have been turned into pigs.

Miyazaki’s fantasy vision is quite simply jaw dropping. »

When Marnie Was There Review

25 June 2015 7:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the future of Studio Ghibli remains uncertain, if When Marnie Was There ends up being the revered animation house’s swan song, it will make for a fitting final chapter in the studio’s history, if not the outright best one. While the anime art style and visual storytelling that endeared Ghibli to millions is still present, and arguably its strongest yet in terms of consistency, When Marnie Was There is a minor entry compared to the likes of Spirited Away, or even last year’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

All the same, When Marnie Was There’s place among the Ghibli canon is undeniable. It’s at once a sweepingly elegiac melodrama, and a simple children’s fable, one adapted from the Joan G. Robinson novel of the same name. Ghibli stories split the difference between visionary fantasy and earthy realism, often times within the same movie, »

‘Inside Out’, and why animation isn’t just kids stuff

24 June 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Don’t you even dare call it a “kid’s movie.”

Animation has been around for a while now, starting with silent experiments such as Gertie the Dinosaur, followed by the more traditional Disney fare such as Snow White or Cinderella, and becoming more modern with another round of Disney hits like The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast but also with a touch of the outside thanks to Japanese imports like My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away.

But time and time again, the medium is relegated to kids duty. Like being sent to the smaller table at Thanksgiving dinner.

Brad Bird, director of The Iron Giant and The Incredibles, said it best when he referred to animation as a medium rather than a genre. Let’s define genre real quickly: “a class or category of artistic endeavor having a particular form.”

So that doesn’t confine animation; instead, »

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie – Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

“I love a woman who can kick my ass!”

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie screens midnights this weekend (June 26th and 27th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

The popular animé series Cowboy Bebop got its own feature-length film in 2001 aptly named Cowboy Bebop: The Movie. Set in the late 21st century, it jumps into the series’ story line just prior to its conclusion, with the bounty hunting crew of the interstellar craft Bebop chasing a hacker aboard a tanker into a major city on Mars. As crew member Faye Valentine closes in on the tanker, she witnesses its catastrophic explosion, which soon appears to be a viral terrorist attack as the death toll continues to mount in the days following. Furthermore, Faye caught a glimpse of the person responsible for the blast and is thus the only surviving witness of the crime. »

Wild Tales Because it's in a foreign language Wild Tales was never going to be a massive hit stateside, but trust me, this is a movie you're going to want to give a shot as six short stories come together for a wildly hysterical anthology of revenge gone wrong. You can read my theatrical review right here.

Run All Night Sean's review of this one was just posted this morning (read it here) and he seems to have had mostly the same impression I had when seeing it in theaters (read my review here), which is to say it's something of a ho hum actioner, but does sport some solid performances.

Spirited Away (Blu-ray) This is probably my favorite Hayao Miyazaki film and it might have actually been the first of his I saw, I can't quite remember. However, if you're looking to get into the master animated filmmaker's work »
