The 10 Most Anticipated Movie Scores of 2015

7 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film scores are pretty ephemeral to a large chunk of the movie-going populace, where music isn’t noticeable unless a triumphant fanfare or sweeping ballad draws enough attention to itself. So if scoring is already the film industry’s unappreciated middle child, how silly is a list about ones that haven’t been released yet? Very silly. Oftentimes, composers don’t even sign with a project until well into production, so speculating on the best film music of 2015, like any year, forces one to work with what’s known. Sound on Sight will offer more in-depth analysis on the most buzzed about music as the year rolls on but for now, here are the ten movie scores I’m most excited to hear in 2015.

10. The WalkAlan Silvestri

Alan Silvestri’s last great score was for a TV show, and his last great film score was for one of the more forgettable Marvel entries. »

Take a Closer Look at the Future in New Images of 'Tomorrowland'

3 February 2015 9:16 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Disney has done a pretty good job of keeping the sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland under wraps. We've seen a teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot, but we still haven't seen much from Brad Bird's summer sci-fi film, and most of the footage of the titular future city goes by so fast that we can't get a great look at it. But thankfully, three new images of Tomorrowland have appeared at the film's official website, and you can take a closer look at the city that still seems to be under construction. There's some gorgeous architecture here, cool vehicles, and clearly some things which don't have a clear function yet. Anyway, check out the photos! Here's the three new images from Tomorrowland from TakeMeToTomorrowland.com: You can still watch the teaser trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland right here. Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (of The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol »

Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts (87th Academy Awards) review

2 February 2015 7:29 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

In the deeply moving “The Bigger Picture,” Daisy Jacobs uses a fresh and unique animation style to tell a story that is full of humanity. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It is extraordinary, the emotion that can be captured in smudges of color. I’ll be stunned if Daisy Jacobs’s deeply moving “The Bigger Picture” [IMDb] doesn’t win this year’s Oscar for Best Animated Short. A tale of two adult brothers coping with their elderly mother’s decline, this offers a fresh and unusual combination of moving paintings on flat surfaces interacting with 3D objects (and sometimes stretching into a third dimension themselves) to create a film that is full of humanity. Grief, anger, jealousy, rage, fear, pity, and love blend in a tapestry of feeling that beautifully captures the confused emotional »

Tomorrowland Super Bowl Trailer: “Do You Want To Go?”

1 February 2015 4:06 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Pictures

Damon Lindelof, co-writer of Tomorrowland, brings with him an association to Jj Abrams, and Abrams’ so-called Mystery Box. As such, Tomorrowland has been produced under as much secrecy as Disney could manage. This only makes every trailer and glimpse of footage more exciting. This Super Bowl pretty much had me on the edge of my seat.

There’s a lot I know about Tomorrowland that isn’t anywhere in that trailer at all. Did you see any trace of humanoid robots, for example? But at the same time, some of that trailer sideswiped me entirely. I had no idea that rocket ship at the end was going to come into play – the business with the pin badge makes it look Tomorrowland is accessed through a kind of teleportation, not space travel, so I’m really not sure what’s going on there.

And that was our first »

Watch: Super Bowl Trailer For Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' Starring George Clooney & Britt Robertson

1 February 2015 4:04 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With Disney busy cranking out movies from the Marvel machine, doing live-action reboots of their animated classics, and preparing years and years worth of "Star Wars" movies, it's nice to know they still have room for original movies. Especially when it's a movie from someone like Brad Bird. The director behind "The Incredibles," "Ratatouille," and "Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol" has a futuristic new flick on the way, and details have been served out in small portions thus far. But today we get another peek with a big game day spot. George Clooney and Britt Robertson are the leads in this tale, co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof, about the unlikely pairing of older scientist with a teenage girl, and the mysterious, titular place. Here's the official synopsis:  From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared. »

Watch: New Footage in Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' Super Bowl Spot

1 February 2015 3:49 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What if there was a place... where nothing was impossible?" After debuting during the Super Bowl today, Disney has posted the full TV spot for Brad Bird's sci-fi Tomorrowland online for our repeat viewing. This is the first time we've seen any new footage beyond the first teaser trailer and the action clip at New York Comic-Con last fall. Britt Robertson stars as Casey, and she meets George Clooney as inventor Frank Walker, and together they end up embarking on a fantastic adventure to another time and place known as "Tomorrowland". This looks really, really good - one of my most anticipated coming up this summer. Enjoy! Here's the brand new Super Bowl TV spot for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland straight from Disney: Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (of The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) who co-wrote the script with Damon Lindelof (Star Trek Into Darkness, »

The film critics who turned to filmmaking

22 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the Pudsey The Dog movie to Joe Cornish and Roger Ebert, what happens when critics make films themselves?

Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage.

To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of Blood's gleefully murderous tract, there's not a whole lot of love for critics in film. Any of this might give way to the preconception that critics, especially film critics, don't actually like films and that they're out of touch with both the filmmakers whose works they »

Handicapping the 2015 short film Oscar races

21 January 2015 12:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you've been reading us this season then you know we've already given you pretty thorough analyses of this year's short film categories. I watched all the films that made it to the final consideration stage and offered up thoughts on each and some somewhat informed predictions. In the end, though, it was still tricky to guess, but I did get four of the five animated players right. Now, with nominees announced, it seems worth it to review. So let's… All things considered, the animated short category is difficult to handicap. Particularly with the infiltration of other voters, as theses categories are opened up to the entire membership via screeners, it's just hard to guess which way preference will fall. The biggest surprise for me was that Glen Keane's gorgeous, heavily promoted "Duet" missed out on a nod. I frankly thought it could have put up a fight to win, »

Traditionally Animated Films at the Oscars

20 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

When the 87th Oscar nominations for best animated feature were announced Jan. 15 and excluded The Lego Movie, the Internet exploded with confusion and disbelief. The film, which was largely expected by many pundits to win the Oscar, was a critical (holding a 96 percent positive score on Rotten Tomatoes) and commercial hit (earning $257.7 million stateside). It also earned Golden Globe and BAFTA Award nominations and won the Critics’ Choice Award for best animated film. It seemingly had everything going in its favor, so what went wrong?

One sentiment is that the animation branch of the Academy, which chooses the nominations, admire hand-drawn traditional animation and want to celebrate and preserve a fading craft rather than nominate solely computer animated and digital films.

The first computer animated film was Toy Story, which was released in 1995 and was nominated for original screenplay, original song and original score. Director »

Birdman review

4 January 2015 11:19 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Keaton and Alejandro Inarritu deliver excellent work with Birdman. But then so does the lesser-known Chris Haarhoff...

“A thing is a thing, not what is said of that thing.”

Whatever you think of Alejandro G Iñárritu’s Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance), it's destined to be one of the year's most talked things. Arriving in UK cinemas on New Year's day, it could have played merry hell with most critics' end-of-year lists if it had been released even a few hours earlier, but it's bound to linger in the memory for the next 12 months.

In the film, Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) is a washed-up movie star who has privately and publicly disintegrated since his infamous turn in the Birdman trilogy. Now, he's trying to be a triple threat, by writing, directing and starring in a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver's What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. »
