Watch 7-minutes of Scenes and Interviews from Django Unchained! When Tarantino gets his hands on a genre, you can bet he’s going to do something that honours it while turning it on its ear. By the looks of Django Unchained, his streak is alive and well. This time, he’s taken the classic Spaghetti Western genre from the 60′s, and with a cast like Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s a pretty safe bet that, off the chain, Django will be off the hook.
Certainly overdue, but with Nat on vacation during an X-Men film release, it’s tough to keep up! How does free love and mutually assured distruction get along with a prequel/reboot of the X-Men franchise? Well, the killer casting and promise of a cameo or two made First Class have some initial excitement to off-set the fear of making this movie in a short 10-months… Doesn’t seem like very long until you consider that’s how long we have to wait for another episode of Game of Thrones!
After having our hopes for a good Japanese cartoon adaptation dashed by the Wachowskiâ€™s Speed Racer, our hopes were high for Imagi Studios to bring us some good old-fashioned CGI manga true to the original. And bring it they did. In the form of a very well made kids movie that brought us both back to the early 80â€™s. And treated us like we had the same brainpower we had in the 80â€™s. A childrensâ€™ movie 100%, Astro Boy fires on all cylinders for kids, and gives parents a good excuse to watch a cartoon inspired by their own childhood. So if you don’t have any, go borrow some kids from someone you know, and youâ€™ll look right at home in the theatre!
We both had very mixed about Wild Things. But even with Nat not finding anything to sympathize with in the character of Max, and Matt finding the narrative run out of steam halfway through, we still couldn’t find it in our hearts to dislike this movie. It’s just somehow very special in spite of any faults is may have. Between the gorgeous effects work, incredible voice talent and breathtaking cinematography of a world we’ve never really seen before, Jonze did manage to capture something with this movie. That something just wasn’t a perfect film.
Watch scenes from the movie and interviews with the cast and crew! It’s taken decades to finally happen, but Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are has finally been adapted to the silver screen. The only thing less predictable is that the director who would accomplish this feat is Spike Jonze! With a history of wild music videos and MTV’s Jackass under his belt, he’d seem an unlikely choice, but he’s been friends with Sendak for years and after plenty of buzz about re-fanging the controversial 60′s book for a modern audience, this creature effect driven story about childhood is finally ready!
