What I like most about this trailer is that they used the original musical score. I hope they use it or something similar to it in the actual film. i'm pretty sure that's not the original score? am i wrong? Yup, you are wrong. The piece of score used in the trailer is John Williams track for the Pl...

Wow. I saw this last night and that was three hours of film bliss. Ok, three hours is really long, but I was entertained by 100% of it regardless. Funny thing is that the stuff I would cut out is mostly action sequences! The action is relentless and doesn't let go until it wants to. So basically thi...

I saw this last night and I have to say, I liked it! It was very well done and the effects are top notch. I had a few minor quibbles about some choices the director made such as having credits in the beginning of the film (it distracted me a lot for some reason). The score also kinda bugged me. For ...

Chicken Little in 3D I saw a few weeks ago. The 3D on a digital projection screen was very impressive and I can just imagine how fun Star Wars would be in 3D (it was developed by lucasfilm). The movie though... man, I thought it was so stupid. It had an interesting premise but the execution was lack...

Daaang. Those musicals, annoying though some of them were, were Disney's big moneymakers-- its core competencies, so to speak. Do you think that it might not be squeezing as many dollars from the public nowadays because it isn't providing lilting, infectious musical numbers to get stuck in people's...

X-Men 3

Wow, no post about the X-Men 3 trailer yet? http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/x3/large.html giggidy giggidy! Kelsey Grammer as Beast is a nice choice and if you watch the teaser too many times, you can start to see what will happen in the movie.. as far as who vs who, etc. What I see looks good, but...

Wow. Has it been that long? I never really liked the Rapunzel story. Pity they couldn't have picked something different. No, it wasn't that long. Pocahontas was a musical released 1995. 1996 -- Hunchback of Notre Dame (great songs and score) 1997 -- Hercules (musical) 1998 -- Mulan (fewer songs tha...

Reminds me of Willy Beamish or something like that. Patrick Warburton as a voice is always something to smile at, but it looks annoyingly bad. But if it's eligible to be nominated for an Oscar, I'll wait until I read some reviews.

a lot of credit of these films go to the screenwriter Steve Kloves, who adapted the first four Harry Potter films. He took a break on the next one and is currently writing the 6th. Talk about a difficult task!

amhardly wrote:what, like Shrek? Say what you want about the story (I'm not a huge shrek fan) but the character designs in Shrek were far better than those in Corpse Bride. Each one was at least somewhat interesting, and quite unique.
All a matter of opinion then.

Ralph Fiennes from this year alone can be seen as one of the most underrated actors of our time. From his character acting bit in Wallace and Gromit to his almost unrecognizable appearance as Voldemort (sure the nose really makes it hard) where he actually changes his voice a tad. I haven't read any...

You shoulda seen the footage shown at San Diego Comic-Con. It was like three times more footage as the teaser and man it looks AWESOME. The teaser though... it leaves me wondering what direction they're trying to go. This movie is a RETURN of Superman... the teaser kinda makes it like it's a BEGINS ...

I just was unimpressed and sometimes am bothered when people say things like "brilliant character design" about this movie. Don't know if anyone here said the movie had brilliant character design. I think they look fine though. I'm more bothered when someone thinks Dreamworks animated features, hom...

I wasn't quite sure what to think about this one. I think the audiences weren't really on board until the name "Steven Spielberg" went on and then they changed their tune to "well... it's probably gonna be ok". I'll reserve judgement until I see more footage. A lot of it is just how trailers are cut...

Bump. Wow. Such hatred towards the poor Corpse Bride! I finally finally watched this last night and I really liked it. No, it's not the greatest movie ever made but honestly, I got what I wanted from a Tim Burton movie. When I go to a Tim Burton movie, I expect to be whisked away to somewhere that o...
