Rating: PG Stars (motion-capture): Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost Writers: Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish, based on the comic book series by Herge Director: Steven Spielberg Distributors: Paramount/Columbia Release Date: December 21, 2011 THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is a curious sort of film. Based on the comic book series by the Belgian writer/artist Herge (real name Georges Prosper Remi, 1907-1983), the motion-capture adventure gives dimensionality to the look of the original artwork, but relies on a kind of Boy’s Own Adventure sensibility that seems a little thin by contemporary standards. Director Steven …Read On »

It’s been a busy Bat-week.

It takes many skilled hands to keep Hollywood running as the stars take their bows- an army that includes personal assistants, makeup artists and publicists, all of whom are sure to step out of the way of the glaring flashbulbs. Then there’s the even less sexy caste of the studio machine called “below the line,” the mostly unrecognized visual effects artists, writers, production designers, editors, costumers and other skilled craftspeople who allow the stars to shine- their own jobs eased on the steam of even more obscure laborers chained to computers and sewing machines. Yet these toiling men and women …Read On »

Composer Interview: Jane Antonia Cornish brings emotional light to FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN

When the recriminations of an intellectual clan’s past collide with a tragedy in their present, familial fireworks are sure to ensue in the finger-pointing fallout. But tender is the musical night in the delicate hands of composer Jane Antonia Cornish, who handles FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN with a gentle, and greatly affecting touch. She also bridges two classical worlds as Dennis Lee’s film segues from past to present, as the beautiful melancholy of piano and violin-driven chamber music meets the progressive rhythms of such modern classicists as Arvo Part and John Adams. It’s an approach that’s entirely apropos for the …Read On »

Arthur in ARTHUR CHRISTMAS | ©2011 Sony Pictures Animation/Aardman Animation

Finding a new take on the familiar Santa Claus adventures is a formidable task, but writer-director Sarah Smith and co-writer Peter Baynham were up for the challenge with the new animated film ARTHUR CHRISTMAS. A CGI co-production between Aardman Animation and Sony Pictures Animation, the story follows wayward Santa Claus offspring Arthur – a well-to-do nebbish who believes in the true spirit of Christmas, but will sadly never be next in line for the Santa job with his much more together older brother Steve – who has completely streamlined the Santa operation for dear old Santa dad with a state-of-the-art …Read On »
