Warner Bros. Pictures presented the Los Angeles Premiere of YOGI BEAR on December 11th at the Village Theater in Westwood, in Association with Sunswept Entertainment/De Line Pictures Production and Rhythm & Hues. The brown carpet had YOGI BEAR written down the length and the background was decorated like a forest park. Arriving early I got a chance to walk through where the pre-party was to be held. It was set up with rides for the kids, food areas, and logs to sit on … just like Jellystone Park. Everyone is familiar with Yogi Bear and his pal Boo-Boo which are […]Read On »

Movie Review: TRON: LEGACY

TRON LEGACY movie poster - final

TRON: LEGACY opens with a very cool, TRON-ized rendition of the traditional Walt Disney Pictures logo, with the fairytale castle rendered in black, white and silver. This suggests that we’re in for a film of mild subversion that makes what we’ll see just that more wonderful. Actually, what we’re in for is a surprisingly faithful follow-up to the original 1982 TRON. Will we see an alternate universe where anthropomorphic computer programs are rendered primarily in shades of black, white and gray? We will. Will the light cycles of the first film have been updated to be more exciting and dynamic? Yes, they will. Will TRON: LEGACY have the same issue as its predecessor when it comes to thin characterizations and talk about changing the world so grand, broad and vague that it could mean practically anything? Yes, it will.

In an attempt to capitalize on the success of 20th Century Fox’s ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS film franchise (which combines CGI creatures with live action antics), Warner Bros. has dug into their archives to create a live-action version of the classic cartoon YOGI BEAR, but with lesser results.

Movie Review: CASINO JACK

Sometimes, you just can’t make this stuff up. Most Americans have heard of Jack Abramoff, if only because he wound up going to jail. Exactly what he did to land in prison is addressed in CASINO JACK, a pitch-black comedy of greed, crime, politics and the intersection of all three.
