Christmas TV: five key moments

19 December 2014 4:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the first Queen’s speech to Morecambe and Wise to Downton Abbey, TV has long been central to the festive season. Joe Moran chooses significant highlights from over the past decades

On Christmas night, 1937, the BBC television studios at Alexandra Palace on London’s Northern Heights were shrouded in freezing smog. When the Music Hall Cavalcade finished at 10pm, viewers were so concerned for the performers that they rang up the studios to offer them lifts home. That Christmas, a year after television broadcasts had begun, showed that the few thousand people with TV sets were forging an intimate relationship with the new medium. Hundreds of them sent cards to the studios or phoned to wish the artistes a happy Christmas. The idea of a special festive schedule was taking shape, with an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, a Christmas cabaret and Television’s First Grand Christmas Pantomime: Dick Whittington and His Cat. »

Interview: Tim Burton Talks Making 'Big Eyes,' Going Digital, The "Disturbing" Process Of 'Alice In Wonderland' & More

18 December 2014 9:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tim Burton has gotten very good at placing his easily identifiable stamp on a number of high profile studio projects. And with good reason. His 3D "Alice in Wonderland" made over a billion dollars worldwide and even supposed flops like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (which he didn't direct but has his name above the title) have proven to be merchandising juggernauts down the line. But with "Big Eyes," Burton returns to small scale, independent filmmaking for the first time in 20 years, following 1994's "Ed Wood." Like "Ed Wood," "Big Eyes" is a true story, and he collaborated once again with screenwriters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, this time to tell the story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), whose husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) took credit for her famous and fabulously popular paintings. We got to sit down with Burton to discuss what drew him to the project, his switch to digital, »

Into The Woods Review

17 December 2014 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Rob Marshall.

Cast: James Corden, Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Mackenzie Mauzy, Lilla Crawford, Billy Magnussen, Daniel Huttlestone, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, Tammy Blanchard, Tracey Ullman.

Certificate: PG

Running Time: 124 minutes

Synopsis: A childless baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt), must collect a series of items for a witch (Streep) in order to lift the family curse.

Johnny Depp. Disney. A Stephen Sondheim musical. You’d be forgiven for thinking you were stepping into a Tim Burton movie with Rob Marshall’s latest. With the plethora of fairy tale twists also coming out of Disney at the moment, you’d also be forgiven for thinking this was just another unimaginative money grab. To an extent you’d be right. After all, the stage show may have been around since 1987, but it’s taken this long to come around, and the success of Disney’s Once Upon A Time, »

Why Tim Burton Doesn't Like The Marvel Superhero Movies

16 December 2014 12:03 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In some respects, Tim Burton is the godfather of this current superhero movie craze. Burton, along with Richard Donner, succeeded in making comic book movies of substance, and the success of Burton.s Batman films (as well as Donner.s Superman) planted the seed of what potentially could be accomplished by a major studio. Christopher Nolan might have escalated the process, but Burton laid the foundation. So now that he.s critiquing the formula, it.s interesting to see how (and if) contemporary filmmakers might react. Tim Burton has shifted genres multiple times since directing Batman, dabbling in the macabre . as usual . but also attempting musicals (Sweeney Todd), sci-fi epics (Planet of the Apes) and unusual kiddie fare (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). While out promoting a new biopic, Big Eyes, Burton spoke with Yahoo UK about the Marvel movies, and the director was less than impressed, »

Tim Burton Says Beetlejuice 2 Script Is “Pretty Good”, Hopes to Speak With Michael Keaton Soon

16 December 2014 10:06 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For whatever reason I'm still pretty excited for Beetlejuice 2.  Maybe it's the uptick in Tim Burton's quality of work in recent years.  After hitting a creative nadir with Alice In Wonderland (what a mindfuck it has to be when your worst movies are the most successful ones financially and your best ones, like Ed Wood, bomb the hardest) I actually really enjoyed Frankenweenie quite a bit.  And I hear good things about Big Eyes, so I'm considering the possibility that Burton has his mojo back after a few fallow years. Burton recently spoke about the script for Beetlejuice 2 (written by Seth Grahame-Smith) calling it "pretty good."  Which I hope is code for "great" since Burton is promising that this movie will happen.  Also confirmed?  Winona Ryder (though that's really nothing new).  Pretty much confirmed?  Michael Keaton.  Hit the jump for more on Beetlejuice 2. I wouldn't worry »

Tim Burton Might Make Another Superhero Movie; But Is Bored Of The Marvel Formula

16 December 2014 5:46 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There's no doubt that Tim Burton paved the way for the modern superhero movie with his unprecedented big-screen take on the Caped Crusader back in 1989 (though even he admits that the movie many criticized for being too dark back in the day "now looks like a light-hearted romp" when compared to some of our more recent CBMs), but it sounds as if he has become a bit fed up with the current glut of cape-flicks occupying our multiplexes. Seemingly blissfully unaware of some of the criticism levelled at his recent cinematic output, the Alice In Wonderland director tells Yahoo! that he feels it's only a matter of time before people begin to tire of the "funny costumes with the tights and stuff", and the overall formula adopted by Marvel. That being said, when asked if he'd ever get behind the canera on another superhero film he doesn't rule it out, »

Cinderella: new footage lands in extended trailer

15 December 2014 11:18 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney's live action take on Cinderella - which will come with a new Frozen short - has a fresh international trailer right here...

Disney will have high hopes for its next live action take on a fairy story, not least given the numbers that the likes of Alice In Wonderland and Maleficent have done in recent years. For next year, director Kenneth Branagh is bringing a new take on Cinderella to the screen for the studio.

This one stars Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Hayley Atwell and Helena Bonham Carter, and we've already had a trailer or two for the movie. Still, now we have another. This is an international trailer (that's arrived via Belgium), albeit in English, and it boasts some new footage of the movie that we've not seen before.

Cinderella is set to land in March, and it's been confirmed that it will come with the Frozen Forever short film before it. »

Film Review: 'Electricity'

13 December 2014 6:48 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★☆☆☆☆The way Bryn Higgins' sophomore feature, Electricity (2014), sees itself is perhaps an integral part of its ultimate failure. It considers itself as stylish, sexy, tough, visually inspiring and numerous other targets it misses by a country mile. In fact Electricity never gets close to any of these poised ideas. The production notes inform us that this is a modern day retelling of Alice In Wonderland, which would be true if Alice had stumbled through badly written cliche after cliche without stopping for breath to alleviate herself of the bald faced banality that consumes her. The single factor that keeps the audience alive with hope of some ‘wonder’ is the magnetic charisma and strong actuality of the revelatory Agyness Deyn.

Watch: Tim Burton's Full 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' Episode 'The Jar' Starring Griffin Dunne

26 November 2014 8:47 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With “Big Eyes” opening next month (apparently to a less-than-enthusiastic response from those who’ve already seen it), and the holiday season just around the corner, it's an appropriate time for us here at the Playlist to appreciate the Tim Burton of yore. Indeed, there was a time when Burton’s now-inimitable style seemed genuinely fresh. A delicate marriage of morbid gothic weirdness and a sort of aching fairy-tale fragility is and was the director’s signature operating mode, but he’s exhausted this technique to diminishing returns in the last few years in disappointing vehicles like “Dark Shadows” and “Alice in Wonderland.” What’s important to remember, though, is that Burton had a stellar run early in his career, back when he was the macabre genius known for sick-puppy classics like “Beetlejuice,” “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure,” and—still the glummest of all the Batman films, in this writer’s opinion—“Batman Returns. »

Grimm season 4 episode 5 review: Cry Luison

24 November 2014 10:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Grimm regains some humour and momentum in this week's episode, Cry Luison. Here's Christine's review...

This review contains spoilers.

4.5 Cry Luison

Last week Bree Turner (who plays Rosalee) tweeted that this week’s episode, Cry Luison, “begins the bullet train of momentum to our mid season finale.”

While that bullet train has yet to reach high-speed, we did see a return of a little of the humour that’s been missing from the series so far this season, and yes, even some plot development.

We pick up where last week’s episode left off, with Monroe and Rosalee arriving at Nick and Juliette’s with Elizabeth, who has figured out how Nick “can get his Grimm back.” There’s only one problem: In order to completely reverse the spell, Juliette must take the potion and then sleep with Nick... as Adalind!

That’s a pretty big ask of any girlfriend, »

Disney's Snow White: the risk that changed filmmaking forever

24 November 2014 8:09 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Snow White was a risk that could have finished Disney. Ryan looks at how the world's first animated feature changed the landscape of cinema

In 2013, Walt Disney Animation Studios released Frozen, its 53rd animated feature. With takings of well over $1bn and counting, it ranks as the most successful animated film of all time, eclipsing the previous title holder - Pixar's Toy Story 3 - by around $200m.

For a generation who've grown up with such films as The Lion King and Tangled, Disney probably seems like an immovable cultural force: as recognisable and unchanging as Mount Rushmore or the American flag. But Disney has survived a series of peaks and troughs since its founding in the 1920s, from its decline in the 1970s and early 80s, its revival in the 90s, and its second burst of creative energy in the 2000s.

From its inception, Disney Animation Studios has moved with the times, »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 7: 'Test of Strength'

19 November 2014 5:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"American Horror Story: Freak Show" won't be back on until after Thanksgiving, but tonight's episode didn't feel very filling. Dandy's angry cry-face is pretty representative of the whole episode; there's lots of pouting and near-tantrums and Frances Conroy just needs to come in and regulate the whole damn mess.

Let's just get started, shall we?

That's Just Dandy

Dandy (Finn Wittrock) and Mrs. Mott (Frances Conroy) don't have a whole lot of screen time this week, which is fine because they're best in small doses. Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters) shows up to collect the Tattler twins (Sarah Paulson), who have been dressed up like Alice in Wonderland. When Dandy reveals that he read Dot's diary and that she secretly wants to get surgically separated from Bette, it's not too hard for Jimmy to convince them both to leave Dandy and his fancy caviar behind. Jimmy also gets a big clue »
