Winnie The Pooh movie review

Review of Winnie the Pooh. Beautiful hand-drawn animation and sweet storytelling bring back Pooh in wonderful fashion. New Pooh pays homage to A.A. Milne. Directors Stephen Anderson (Meet the Robinsons) and Don Hall (The Princess and the Frog) replace high-tech bells and whistles with hand- drawn, 2-D animation, sweet storytelling inspired by A.A. Milne's books and lovely songs by She & Him duo Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward for Winnie the Pooh, Disney's first hand-drawn animated film since 2009's The Princess and the Frog and the first Pooh feature to come out of the Walt Disney Animation Studios in 30 years (The Tigger Movie (2000), Piglet's Big Movie (2003) and Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005) were made by Disney's home video division). The difference in artistic care shows from the first frame. Based on three A.A. Milne stories from the '20s, Winnie the Pooh, featuring the bear with the red shirt that barely covers his belly,

MPAA Ratings: 'Bridesmaids,' 'Justin Bieber,' 'Winnie the Pooh'

The Motion Picture Association of America's Classification and Ratings Administration released new ratings for Bridesmaids, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Winnie the Pooh and more in their weekly bulletin this afternoon.Bridesmaids was rated R for "some strong sexuality, and language throughout." This follows in the footsteps of other Judd Apatow-produced adult-leaning comedies like Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Pineapple Express and Get Him to the Greek. The Kristen Wiig vehicle opens May 13 against comic book adaptation Priest. Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Winnie the Pooh each received a G rating. While this innocuous designation is somewhat rare, it's not altogether surprising: previous Pooh outings The Tigger Movie and Piglet's Big Movie were also rated G, as were recent teen idol concert documentaries Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience and Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. Never Say Never opens Feb. 11 against Just Go With It,

Winnie the Pooh: A Cinematic Return to Hundred Acre Wood

Nov 22, 2010

I have fond memories of the Winnie the Pooh movies; although I haven't seen recent entries such as The Tigger Movie (2000), Piglet's Big Movie (2003), or Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005), I'd look forward to seeing this movie, mostly because the trailer's sweet music and somber dialog suggests a soothing poignancy that would not only be instructional for children, but comforting to adults.

Although I'm glad that Disney kept the Pooh franchise in traditional animation, I have to say that I'm disappointed with the film's look. I miss the grainier, fuller, warmer era of ...Read more at MovieRetriever.com

Warner, 'Pooh' Stake Out 2011...

Late this afternoon, Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled a set of noteworthy additions to their 2011 release schedule, while Walt Disney Pictures also chimed in, assigning dates to two new animated movies. Unknown White Male has been scheduled for Jan. 7, 2011. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan), the movie stars Liam Neeson as a doctor who wakes up after a car accident to find that his wife (January Jones) no longer recognizes him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Also featuring Diane Kruger, Unknown White Male currently shares the Jan. 7 date with the Untitled Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman Project. Directed by Mikael Hafstrom (1408) and starring Anthony Hopkins, Warner Bros. supernatural drama The Rite debuts Jan. 28, 2011. Allegedly inspired by true events, the movie finds a disillusioned American seminary student attending exorcism school at the Vatican, battling demonic forces in the process. Warner Bros. previously had The Factory, a thriller featuring John Cusack,

Boos! and Whoop-doos!: The Swine Flu Weekend Movie Marathon!

There is a dark cloud looming over this weekend, and it's called The Swine Flu! Vice President Biden caused quite a panic yesterday when he told the nation he was keeping his family and friends away from enclosed spaces such as subways, airplanes, buses, malls, and the local Wal*Mart. If you don't want to catch this dreaded pig virus, you must wash your hands while counting from A to Z. You must stay away from strangers. And you must avoid the local Cineplex at all costs (because that is the number one breeding ground for icky porcine germs).

This means a lot of you would-be ticket buyers are going to be stuck at home, guzzling antibiotics and trying to duct tape your windows shut this weekend. When the dust has settled, and you finally have the living room walled off in bubble wrap, that most dread villian is bound to strike.

Disney leads ani Oscar list

The Walt Disney Co. dominates the list of this year's Oscar-eligible animated features, fielding four of the 11 eligible entries with its releases, which include the Pixar-produced Finding Nemo, Brother Bear, The Jungle Book 2 and Piglet's Big Movie. But while Disney scored on the distribution front, anime director Satoshi Kon enjoyed the distinction of being the only director with two eligible films. He is represented by the DreamWorks-distributed Millennium Actress and the upcoming Samuel Goldwyn Films/IDP release Tokyo Godfathers. Rounding out the list of eligible films, which were announced Wednesday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, are Warner Bros. Pictures' live-action/animated combo Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Paramount Pictures/Nickelodeon's Rugrats Go Wild, Miramax Films' Pokemon Heroes, Sony Pictures Classics' The Triplets of Belleville and the German-produced Jester Till.

Dis to shut Japan ani unit

Dis to shut Japan ani unit
The Walt Disney Co. is bidding sayonara to Walt Disney Animation (Japan), its Tokyo-based animation studio that has turned out such projects as the theatrical releases Piglet's Big Movie and The Tigger Movie as well as direct-to-video titles like this year's 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure. In an internal memo distributed Friday, Disney revealed its plans to shut down the animation facility, which employs 103 local animators and artists. The closure will take effect once the studio completes work on its current project, a Winnie the Pooh spinoff called The Heffalump Movie. It has not yet been determined whether that project will be a theatrical or video/DVD release. In a statement, Disney acknowledged the studio's closure but added: "Our experience working in Japan for the past 14 years has been outstanding, primarily because of the world-class artists and executives who have produced exceptional animation. However, after reviewing our business plans and production requirements, we determined we no longer can support this additional production capacity."
