The Pixar Effect: IT WORKS!

The saga between Disney and Pixar has been settled as of late with the merger of the two companies. As a result, John Lasseter has been given the power of green lighting films from Roy Disney himself. This has led to a great increase in quality of Disney franchise as a whole. Not only did he eliminate the production of straight to DVD, but is a chief Imagineering executive.

In the theme parks, he is taking Disney's California Adventure park from a partial day experience to an all or even several day happening. The original Disneyland park is focusing less on budget and more on quality for the guests. It's showing, as Tomorrowland got a complete stylistic overhaul, the Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through returning after seven years and, of course, the Finding Nemo Submarine.

As for films, the change is very noticeable. Meet the Robinsons was far enough into production to not qualify for any change, but Bolt, back then called American Dog, was substantially different in look and story. The original story was about a TV dog being stranded in Nevada with a one eyed cat and a radioactive rabbit that are trying to find new homes. Bolt was also a larger dog, more of a heroic looking collie like dog. As everyone saw from our review, Bolt is a fantastic movie. As an aside from me, it was reminiscent of the Disney movies of old and that makes me excited for future endeavors.

Pixar has definitely been the highlight of the Disney franchise in recent years, but now that they are working on the same level, let's hope the "Pixar Effect" has a longstanding results. Maybe Disney can enter it's second Renaissance.

YouTube Pick of the Week

Hey guys. Sorry about the lateness.

This week's pick is actually directly related to YouTube.

For those of you who don't already know Bo Burnham's music, you should definitely check him out. He is a wordsmith for the ages, and I can foresee him joining the ranks of Al Yankovic and Kanye one day. You can also look for him in Judd Apatow's upcoming High School Musical Parody.

This is the song he performed at YouTube live, in San Francisco this past Saturday.

Be sure to check out his YouTube.

It says a lot for Vince Vaughn that he still made me laugh during the otherwise mind-numbing Four Christmases.

Yes children, this movie is perfectly stupid. But it is also the kind of stupid you expect - and I don't know whether that makes me happy or sad. It's already a dumb idea. Visiting four families on Christmas is not something that should be the plot of a movie. It's something that should be one comical act of a movie, amounting to something more. Thing is, this doesn't amount to anything more.

Charlie Kaufman is hurt, for a number of reasons.  For one, something inside of him is fueling his overwhelmingly dreary yet whimsical and meekly hopeful screenplays.  For another, the reviews on his latest film are out, and they're a mixed bag.  The critics review and get read, Hollywood puts out and gets seen, people pay for tickets and popcorn, and somewhere in the whole mess of things, Kaufman, 50, stuck his neck out farther than any filmmaker in recent memory.  But to describe Synecdoche, New York as the brave new personal statement of Charlie Kaufman is a discredit to him, to the film, or to anyone reading this.  Because art looks outward, as well as inward.  The harshest criticism that reviewers level at the film take aim in its inherent self-reflexiveness and indulgent, illogical nature (so they say).  That is to say the writer of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is still using the tools that define him the most.  This film, Kaufman's directorial debut, however, is not interested in tinkering with formula, upsetting expectations, or otherwise proving to the world how clever Charlie Kaufman is.  It is one man's examination of life, sex, and death.

Review: BOLT


Yes is the answer.

Yes is the answer to the question, "Can Disney make Pixar-quality movies without the actual Pixar team?

Bolt is proof. I know there are people out there who will disagree with me. I know there are things about this film that are not Pixar-quality. But I honestly believe this was just as good as any film that could have come out of their animation studios. The story was strong enough, the voice acting was strong enough, and the animation was certainly strong enough. The directors, Chris Williams (The Emperor's New Groove), and Byron Howard have brought this movie to life, and it is pounding with greatness.

Upcoming Film: Coraline

Coming soon from director Henry Selick (Nightmare Before Christmas, Monkeybone, and James and the Giant Peach) is an all new soon to be animated classic - Coraline. Coraline tells the story of a girl who has a terribly boring life and one day stumbles into an alternate reality where everything is perfect. But as we all know, nothing is as perfect as it seems.

Once again, Henry Selick's fantastic stop motion animation team comes together to show us a world full of imagination and excitement. I think it looks like a solid mix of "Being John Malchovich and Alice in Wonderland". Based on a book by Neil Gaiman (Stardust), and with a cast including Keith David, Dakota Fanning, and Terri Hatcher, this film looks to be fantastic. But don't take my word for it - Watch the trailer below!

Coraline will release limited on December 19, 2008, and worldwide on February 6, 2009.

YouTube Pick of the Week

This is called "SnowBlood". It's a delightful and very bloody animation about an evil snowman chasing and killing a bunch of snowboarders for no reason other than just to do so.

"Why put something so morbid?", You might ask.

Well, while it is almost a 4 minute horror film, it is quite hilarious and the animation is simply fantastic. It is so high quality, including camera moves and character animation, that I am surprised that it is not studio produced. It is made by students who seem like they attend an animation school.

Enjoy it.

Editorial: The YouTube Generation's Effect on Film

Everybody wants to be a star, whether it be in music, movies or mastery of Guitar Hero, but until YouTube, there wasn't a place in the world for one's work to be universally praised or pushed to the ground. This new virtual playground of YouTube has many amateur filmmakers trying to get their faces known so they can be represented. It isn't as preposterous a claim as a comedian being found in a comedy club.

The majority of YouTube is stupid "comedy" and pirated things in terrible quality. However, there is a small amount of material that is very well produced and well scripted. As evidenced by our recent feature of the "YouTube Pick of the Week", there are certainly different varieties of well produced content.

Only recently have the studios taken it upon themselves to use YouTube to release certain things related to their products, but also given the users on the video site opportunities. One of the most subscribed users on YouTube, Ryan "nigahiga" Higa has been producing "How To" videos, sing alongs and rants with his friend Sean Fujioshi for over a year. Later this year, a film loosely based on their success titled Ryan and Sean's Not So Excellent Adventure is going to be given a limited release. This film will feature another YouTube star, Michael Buckley, host of the "What The Buck? Show" as the talent scout that finds them.

A group that knew that it wanted to be in the business, Derrick Comedy, has written, directed and produced their own feature called Mystery Team that has yet to get a release date. The movie is about the three main contributors of Derrick Comedy, Dominic, Donald and D.C., as a team of super-sleuths that started solving mysteries when they were seven. The problem is that they are still trying to solve mysteries in their senior year of high school. Hilarity ensues with familiar faces to fans of Derrick Comedy, including current Saturday Night Live cast member Bobby Moynihan who is featured in the video "Bro Rape" as well as a lot of the live performance that Derrick Comedy puts on in the New York City Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.

There is plenty of talent out there and those who haven't "made it" are willing to put in that extra effort to make it great. It may not be for everyone, but the struggling artist definitely has a home on YouTube. Let's just hope that Hollywood takes more notice to this rising trend of internet film making so we can see more fresh talent and ideas.

Here is a preview for Mystery Team. Enjoy!

Ok, so I was wrong. Quantum of Solace is not "the best thing ever to happen to planet Earth". In fact, it was not even as good as Casino Royale.

However, this does not at all mean that it was not incredible. Marc Forster's newest installment of the James Bond series is exploding with greatness. There are only a few things that could have made this movie stronger. There are several forces at play that pound with power, sending the movie into a place where you can forgive its mistakes, and accept it as a truly great action movie.

So, let's start at the beginning. The opening music sequence is not the greatest. Yes, it's pretty cool, but the opening to Casino Royale is so awesome that it cannot quite be followed without a serious amount of work put in. Jack White and Alicia Keys perform the new song, "Another Way To Die" here and it rocks. It's no "You Know My Name", but the lyrics reflect the theme of the movie so well that you can forgive it.

Quantum of Solace takes place about an hour after the events of Casino Royale. James Bond (Daniel Craig) has Mr. White (Jesper Christiansen) in his car, and is driving back to meet M (Judy Dench) to interrogate him. The rest of the movie has to do with Mr. White's associate - Mr. Greene (Mathieu Amalric). It turns out Mr. Greene is involved in something very dangerous, and it is up to James Bond to stop it. Sound like every other Bond movie ever?

Here's the thing: it seems as though Greene is also linked to Vesper's death. Now not only is Bond motivated by his duty, he is motivated by revenge. While the idea for this plot is great on paper, the film fails to fully deliver the story, and that is where the real issue with this movie lies.

Greene's plan is never actually explained. It is clear that he is funding some evil military leaders and helping them with coups in exchange for large territories of land. A lot of them are in the Bolivian desert, where water can be found. However, it is never clear what Greene wants. Is he actually threatening the country of Bolivia with its own water? If the country is too poor to afford all this water for themselves, what kind of idiot must Greene be to hold it ransom? He says the word "Quantum" every now and then, but it still makes very little sense.

I have absolutely no idea why this movie is called Quantum of Solace. I did read Ian Fleming's short story, "Quantum of Solace", and I know that it centers on Bond at a very boring dinner party. As you may have guessed, this movie shares nothing in common except the name. Yes, it is a cool bunch of words, but it means nothing, and it has no relation to the story. Then again, maybe it does, but the story is so poorly explained that you cannot possibly catch on to it. Does Mr. Greene work for Mr. White? Or does Mr. White work for Mr. Greene? And where does Colonel Mustard come in? What about Professor Plum?

Why then, did I say this movie is so great? It's because everything else is extremely strong. The cinematography is some of the nicest I have ever seen. Roberto Schaefer did a great job here, especially with all the colors. Forster and Schaefer really teamed up to make this one of the most beautifully shot films I have seen in quite some time. I have a personal love of slowly panning track shots, and those were abundant here.

David Arnold, who has done the score for the last couple of Bond films shines again. While this score is not nearly as impressive as its predecessor, it still emanates likeability. It was nice to hear Vesper's theme chime in on the piano every now and then, almost providing an undertone to what Bond is thinking about.

And finally, the acting. Once again, Daniel Craig proves himself to be a Bond for the history books. Though I grew up looking at Sean Connery as the epitome of James Bond, Craig is slowly starting to change my mind. He just might be the best Bond in the franchise's history. He certainly plays the most complex one. He has that look, that permeating look, where, even though he is staring at you with those stern eyes, you know what he is thinking. Though little to no muscles actually move in his face, you can tell when he is trying not to laugh... and even trying not to cry. The other thing that must be said about Daniel Craig is that he is so damn manly, it is ridiculous. He pulls off some complicated, and visually stunning (not to mention brilliantly correographed) stunts. Walking out of the theater, Patrick joked, "he makes Leonidas look like a puppy".

Olga Kurylenko is fantastic as well. There is one thing that distinguishes her from all other Bond girls, but as much as I would like to, I cannot give that away. You will have to go and see it for yourselves. With her recent role in Max Payne, and now this, it seems like Kurylenko is rising up in the business, and deservedly. And last but not least, Dominic Greene might just be one of my favorite villains. I certainly like him more than Le Chiffre. He looks at you with these wide eyes, and you know that wheels in his brain are spinning fast, and that you are likely to be in trouble very soon.

In the end, the reason that this movie works is because it serves as a bridge between the hard, stone Bond of Casino Royale, and the other 20 movies that have been made. While at the beginning I kept thinking Bond was just turning into a dick, it slowly began to make sense - he is getting colder. The colder he gets, the easier it is to leave Vesper behind, and the more emotionally detached he becomes. His coldness coalesces perfectly with his immaturity, and the two ebb and flow beautifully throughout the movie.

He also drives about twelve cars throughout.

Go and see it. You will be disappointed in the story. Maybe even more than me. But it is worth it. It has something for everyone, and while it was no Casino Royale, it did a pretty good job keeping up with it.

YouTube Pick of the Week

Hello the internet,

After hours of scouring the world wide intertube, I found a fine example of comedic filmmaking.


Nathan Fielder is the master of awkward comedy. I love how well acted this whole thing is. It reminds me of The Office. Everyone plays it so straight that you can't help but love every second. If you have a YouTube account, and you are not subscribed to Nathan Fielder yet, go ahead and do so. You won't be disappointed.

Before I jump into a delightfully short, yet detailed review, let me tell you - I did not see Madagascar. It didn't appeal to me back when it came out in the days before this blog's existence, and even now I probably won't go back and see it. But - I absolutely loved Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Spoilers May Occur - But Not Major Ones
Written by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) and directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar) and Tom McGrath (Madagascar), this film tells the story of Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller) growing up with his dad, Zuba (Bernie Mac). One day, Zuba turns his back and Alex is captured by poachers and sent to the New York Zoo. Then (the first movie) along with some of his friends, Alex left the zoo, went to Madagascar. Now, accidentally ending up in Africa, they need to figure out how to get back to New York as well as deal with family and personal issues along the way.

The visuals are great and stylized in a very delightful, and not distracting way, and the voice acting is pretty excellent. While the cast includes Chris Rock, Alec Baldwin, Ben Stiller, Jada-Pinkett Smith, and David Schwimmer, my favorite character in the film was Bernie Mac, who channeled a king as powerful as Mufasa was but with a heart that might seem even bigger. I was tremendously sad after watching the film when I came to the realization that that character will likely not be in the next installment.

This isn't a Lion King rip-off. Face it, it's pretty hard to make a movie about a pride of lions in Africa and escape similarities entirely. But DreamWorks pulls it off nicely.

The score is written by Hans Zimmer (surprise) and includes a few songs by, who also voices the character of Moto Moto in the film. This brings me to another point. DreamWorks seems to have gotten over their ideas that an animated character needs to look like its real life counterpart. Bernie Mac doesn't sound like Bernie Mac, and does not sound like you're watching an animated I have always liked the idea of actors creating voices for their characters, because it adds a lot to the film and makes each character even more authentic.

I loved the fact that you did not have to have prior knowledge of the first film to see this one. They explain the previous plot nicely in about 2 minutes and you are instantly caught up to where you should be, as any good sequel should do. All the characters are great, as is their development, and the visual gags are hilarious and simply amazing - especially since there are hardly any pop culture references (finally).

What I didn't like was the heavy inclusion of the old woman from the first movie. I thought that she was a terribly annoying and frustrating character. But every vine of gapes has a few bad ones on it, and it doesn't stop you from eating the rest of them with joy.

Remember when DreamWorks made great movies like The Prince of Egypt and Road to El Dorado? Well, Kung Fu Panda showed it and now Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa has confirmed it. Dreamworks is back on the great filmmaking track, and I have nothing but the highest hopes for their next film, Monsters vs. Aliens.

Let me start off by stating my criteria for this review. I have NOT seen a movie with Michael Cera as the starring role. Also, I have NOT read the book Youth In Revolt. So needless to say I went into this film not expecting anything. After seeing the film and finding out things about the book, I want to tell those fans of the book that this is not a 100% faithful adaptation. There are many characters that are left out, as well as plot points. The story of Nick Twisp centers around one thing and one thing only, Sheeni Saunders.

The Best Man For the Job

Yes, Paul Rudd was fantastic in Role Models but his days as a leading man have just begun.

Soon he and Jason Segel will star in I Love You, Man, a film that Rudd refers to as a "bromantic comedy". The film will be written and directed by John Hamburg (Along Came Polly, Meet the Parents), and produced by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Road Trip). Since Hamburg wrote a couple of episodes of the cancelled TV show, Undeclared, it's nice to see him and Jason Segel collaborating again.

Paul Rudd plays a guy who is getting married and realizes one crucial thing: he has no friends. Because he has mostly been a friend to girls in his life, this creates a challenge when trying to find a "best man". The film centers on him searching for a best man, and ultimately meeting Sidney (Jason Segel), who becomes not only his best man, but his best friend.

The film also stars Jon Favreau, Jamie Pressly, Carla Gallo, Rashida Jones, Jo Lo Truglio, Thomas Lennon, and Andy Samberg.

Basically, this movie is gonna rock. When a trailer hits the internet, I'll post it.

I Love You, Man hits theaters January 16th.

First trailer for Monsters vs. Aliens, Dreamworks' next film appears online

The next movie from Dreamworks is Monsters vs. Aliens, a movie where a huge alien comes down to earth and the US military establishes a team of monsters (and a really tall girl) to fight it. It is made in the style a 1950's B sci-fi movie, full of every visual and vocal gag that anyone could ever imagine. I personally think it looks hilarious... almost like an animated Leslie Neilsen movie.

Lately Dreamworks has been making some awesome films (Kung Fu Panda & Madagascar 2) so, here's hoping that the trend continues!

Monsters vs. Aliens hits theaters March 27th, 2009

First trailer for Up, Pixar's next film appears online

When WALL-E was released Pixar broke its tradition of including a teaser for the studio's next film alongside the previews and instead opted for giving Disney's Bolt the full spotlight. Now the first official teaser for the film has surfaced, while there was previously footage of a house with balloon's attached to it this is the first time we get a glimpse into the characters and the premise of the film. Much like the teaser for WALL-E, Pixar seems to be banking more on reminding audiences of the studio's ridiculously high reputation than fully focusing on the film itself.

You can download the trailer at in these resolutions: 480p, 720p, 1080p.

Up will be directed by Pete Doctor who's directorial debut was Monster's Inc. and has directed the English localization of Hayao Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle. Up will hit theaters May 29th, 2009.

Interview: DAVID WAIN

Hello All!

If you are reading this, you probably have heard of David Wain, and if you haven't... well... you have now. David Wain is an actor/writer/director behind such films and shows as Stella, Wainy Days, Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten, The State and now Role Models (Opening Friday).

I got the chance to interview Mr. Wain regarding Role Models and some other ventures, so without further ado... here it is!

MW: Where did the idea for Role Models come from? Were you ever in a similar situation to Danny and Wheeler?

DW: The main thing I relate to from Danny & Wheeler's situation is being suddenly forced, perhaps later in life than most others, to take an interest in a child's welfare over my own. For me it was because I had my first child this year. Role Models had been in development for years before I got involved, so I can't take credit for the idea!

MW: How much of the film's dialogue is improvised? Who were some of the actors that were consistently surprising?

DW: I'd say in the final cut, about 15-20% was improvised. The amount varied widely depending on the scene and the combination of actors and most of all on how good the script was! For example we were never quite happy with our script for a big dinner table scene between Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Ken Marino and Paul Rudd, so we wrote up a few bullet points on a piece of paper and entirely improvised. All the actors were funny and surprising in different ways throughout. One memorable example was Joe Lo Truglio, whose character "Kuzzik" was barely written on the page, but he kept throwing in the funniest things and we just kept rolling.

MW: As a screenwriter you have worked with Ken Marino in the past. What was it like also working with Timothy Dowling and Paul Rudd on the screenplay?

DW: Paul Rudd I'd worked with creatively on The Ten, where he was one of the producers, and to a lesser extent on everything else we've done together (Diggers, Stella, Wet Hot, etc), so it was an easy transition to be also writing with him, for both me and Ken. We didn't actually work on the film at the same time as Timothy Dowling. He did many drafts of the script, and created the broad storyline of the film, but was no longer involved when I came on board.

MW: How drastically did the film change from the 1st draft of the script to the version of that we see on screen?

DW: Well the very first draft of the script (then titled "Big Brother") was a drama (not a comedy) about a man named Tom and a boy named Lewis. Aside from the existence of a mentoring program, I don't think anything from that draft is in the final movie - BUT full disclosure, I never read that first draft.

MW: Since you have worked with Paul Rudd in the past, was the part of Danny written for him or did you hold auditions?

DW: Paul and Seann were both on board long before me. But I know that Paul re-conceived his character from scratch in his initial draft, and then the three of us (Rudd/Wain/Marino) developed and further fleshed out the Danny character in our subsequent passes.

MW: What was it like working with Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Bobb'e J. Thompson who play the two kids in the film? How is it different working with young actors than older ones?

DW: Well the two of them are very different from each other. Chris was 18 years old at the time, out of high school, so not really a kid at all. Even though it was only his second movie, he was very professional, funny and great. Bobb'e is a unique comedic actor - regardless of his age. He's also been in so many things that he was very comfortable on our set and my job was kind of to watch him go! Sometimes I would forget, however, that he's also an eleven-year-old kid, and kids sometimes need more attention to swings in energy, mood, etc.

MW: I noticed you have a cameo role in the background as another role model. How did you decide to cameo in that role?

DW: Basically I just wanted to be in the movie, but I didn't want to give myself too big a part so I could mainly concentrate on writing & directing.

MW: What films and other media inspired you to become a writer/actor/director?

DW: I listened incessantly to Steve Martin as a kid. And I watched his specials and SNL appearances over and over. Also all the Woody Allen movies. Those were the biggies for me as a kid. Then in college I was really inspired by Robert Altman & Spike Lee.

MW: Are there any projects coming in the future from you that you can comment on?

DW: I do the main voice on Superjail every Sunday night on Adult Swim; going on tour with STELLA comedy troupe starting November 30th; producing a web show called Children's Hospital coming in December; working on a TV version of my web series Wainy Days - all the latest on that stuff is at Then I'm working on scripts for the next movie but don't know yet when or what that will turn out to be.

MW: If you were ever to pick another genre of film to work with, what would it be?

DW: I'd like to make a dark(ish) relationship drama along the lines of Husbands and Wives or Sex, Lies & Videotape.

MW: Do you have any words of advice to share with young filmmakers who may want to pursue a career similar to yours?

DW: There's certainly no one route to getting started in this business. But I'd repeat some advice I heard Woody Allen give, paraphrasing - work your ass off, and stay true to your voice, and don't focus on the money. If you do the work, you have any talent, and you keep your eyes on the prize, the money will come sooner or later.

Go see Role Models tomorrow in theaters everywhere! Read our review for Role Models HERE!

YouTube Pick of the Week

Hello All!

I am pleased to announce this weeks' "YouTube Pick of the Week"

"Star Wars" - an a capella tribute to John Williams

I find this video simply astounding. It's all one guy singing four parts and harmonizing perfectly. The lyrics are brilliant and hilarious, and the whole video never misses a beat. I don't feel that I have to explain more about it, because if you watch you will easily see it's greatness.

Nicely done sir!

Futurama: Boldly Going Where No (well very few) Cancelled Shows Have Gone Before

Cancelled science fiction shows have a way of perfectly working to come back as movies. Firefly came back with Serenity, X files came back with The X files Movie, and Sex and the City came back with Sex and the City earlier this summer. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. For Futurama, it is working.

Futurama was created back in 1999 by Matt Groenig (The creator of The Simpsons). It ran for four seasons and was an animated series about a guy named Fry who was frozen by cryogenics in 1999, and woke up in the year 3000. The show chronicled Fry's adventures for the next few years as he settled into New New York and his new job as a delivery boy for an interstellar delivery service.

The show was ripe with great humor, most of it being clever puns on our modern day activities, or great references to famous sci-fi movies or television shows (often Star Trek or Star Wars). Then it got cancelled, but DVD sales have led to it coming back in a new form - four feature length 'straight to DVD' films, which constitute as a 5th season and will hopefully lead to Futurama being picked back up for television broadcast for more seasons in the near future.

The most recent series to make a film based on DVD sales was the animated series Family Guy. Several years after being cancelled, they released a straight to DVD film which did so well that Family Guy was picked up for four more seasons. This is the plan for Futurama.

The movies are titled as follows: Bender's Big Score (Released), The Beast With a Billion Backs (Released), Bender's Game (Bender's Game), and Into the Wild Green Yonder (February).

Each film picks up immediately after its predecessor, making it very similar to a live action one hour drama on television. The most recent film - Bender's Game hits the shelves for purchase today, so go check it out. It should be pretty funny, though I recommend you see the previous two first.

Here's the trailer for Bender's Game
