charlottes_web_poster_small.jpg

Synopsis:
Fern (Dakota Fanning) is one of only two living beings who sees that Wilbur is a special animal as she raises him, the runt of the litter, into a terrific and radiant pig. As Wilbur moves into a new barn, he begins a second profound friendship with the most unlikely of creatures – a spider named Charlotte – and their bond inspires the animals around them to come together as a family. When the word gets out that Wilbur’s days are numbered, it seems that only a miracle will save his life. A determined Charlotte – who sees miracles in the ordinary – spins words into her web in an effort to convince the farmer that Wilbur is “some pig” and worth saving.

Based on the classic children’s novel by E.B. White.

Synopsis:
Set in the turbulent late 1960s and early ’70s, a trio of women — Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Deena (Beyoncé Knowles) and Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose) — form a promising girl group called The Dreamettes. At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor, Jr. (Jamie Foxx), who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers for headliner James “Thunder” Early (Eddie Murphy). Curtis gradually takes control of the girls’ look and sound, eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams. That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, finally pushing the less attractive Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become a crossover phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher than they ever imagined.

Cast: Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé Knowles, Eddie Murphy, Jennifer Hudson, Keith Robinson; Directed by: Bill Condon

It is deja vu that unexpectedly guides ATF agent Doug Carlin through an investigation into a shattering crime.

Don Henderson (Greg Kinnear)—a marketing executive at Mickey’s Fast Food Restaurant chain, home of “The Big One”—has a problem.

Leaving the cushy confines of the company’s Southern California boardroom for the immigrant-staffed slaughterhouses, teeming feedlots and cookie cutter strip malls of Middle America, what Don discovers is a “Fast Food Nation” of consumers who haven’t realized it is they who are being consumed by an industry with a seemingly endless appetite for fresh meat.

Stranger Than Fiction Soundtrack

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

Columbia Records/Sony Music Soundtrax will release the soundtrack for Stranger Than Ficition, on November, 7th. Read on:

On Tuesday November 7th, 2006, Columbia Records/Sony Music Soundtrax will release the soundtrack to the new Will Ferrell film Stranger Than Fiction.

Music From The Motion Picture Stranger Than Fiction will feature four songs from Texas rockers Spoon, one of which was recorded specifically for the film. Additionally the film will feature a few songs composed by Spoon’s Britt Daniel and the soundtrack producer Brian Reitzell.

“When I was approached to do the music for “Stranger Than Fiction,” writes soundtrack album producer Brian Reitzell (Redd Kross, soundtracks for “Marie Antoinette” “Lost In Translation,” “Virgin Suicides,” “Thumbsucker”) in his liner notes for the album, “I thought it might be the perfect occasion for Britt Daniel (singer/ songwriter of Spoon) and I to collaborate….I was basically scoring the film with Spoon songs – it created a kind of sonic thread that had just the right amount of nervy melody and rich, simplistic tone I thought suited Zach’s story and Marc’s vision of the film. The actual ‘job’ of scoring that Britt and I were so excited about doing together became a much easier task since the existing and newly remixed music worked so well. For this soundtrack album, it seemed appropriate to include the full vocal versions of the songs so you can hear them in all their glory as the band originally intended.”

When Monsters Walked the Earth

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

frankenstein_blog.jpg

We thought that you would like this feature, which takes a look back at the classic Universal Monsters of yesterday. You now, before the slashers such as: Jason, Freddy and the rest of the slasher gang. Read on:

You think you’re a horror fan? Well, guess again. There’s more to the genre than the old cut-up-the-coeds game that modern horror films tend to serve us. So what better time to look back at the true classics than at Halloween? Herein, then, is a guide to the high points, and some of the low points, of the cycle of Universal monster movies that first gave us the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man, way back when. Consider it IGN’s Halloween gift to you — almost as good as an apple with razor blades stuck in it. Almost.

DRACULA (1931)

Role Call: Starring Bela Lugosi (Count Dracula), Dwight Frye (Renfield), Edward Van Sloan (Prof. Abraham Van Helsing), David Manners (John Harker), Helen Chandler (Mina Harker); directed by Tod Browning

The Lowdown: The first of Universal’s sound era horror films, Dracula’s success at the box office legitimized the genre at a time when movies stood at the threshold of a new age. Bela Lugosi’s Count became an icon, as would the many other Universal monsters, and even if the Hungarian actor has since gone on to be the ultimate typecasting cautionary tale, there’s no denying his creepiness in this film.

Did You Know? Lugosi would only play Dracula one more time for Universal, 17 years later in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

Monster Mash: Dracula is pretty dastardly here, with little of the pathos applied to later versions of the character, while Renfield is an ordinary man turned into an unsympathetic fiend. Drac’s brides are, of course, monstrous too (and hot, in that 1930s kind of way). Lesser-known sequels would follow, in 1936 with the underappreciated Dracula’s Daughter and 1943 with the unsatisfying Son of Dracula, before the character would join his gruesome brethren in the Universal monster mashes beginning with 1944′s House of Frankenstein.

Modern Matters: Many subsequent films featuring the character would attempt to tie the Count more closely to his supposed real-life inspiration Vlad the Impaler as well as to the original Bram Stoker novel that made Drac famous, most notably Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992).

FRANKENSTEIN (1931)

Role Call: Starring Boris Karloff (the Monster), Colin Clive (Dr. Henry Frankenstein), Dwight Frye (Fritz), Mae Clarke (Elizabeth), Edward Van Sloan (Dr. Waldman); directed by James Whale

The Lowdown: With the success of Dracula less than a year earlier, Universal chose to follow up with another famous novel that, like Stoker’s work, had already proven successful on the stage. Mary Shelley’s tale of a mad scientist with delusions of godhood, and the pitiful creature that results from his experiments, would become — through director James Whale’s film — one of the most famous stories ever told.

Did You Know? Boris Karloff wasn’t even invited to the premiere of the film, though he would soon become a big star as a result of playing the Monster — being billed simply as “Karloff.” That’s one-name stardom the likes of which only Madonna, Britney, John, Paul, George, and Ringo, and very few others, have known.

Monster Mash: Blame all of Dr. Frankenstein’s problems on his not doing a background check on his assistant Fritz, the perverted hunchback who first provides the doctor with an “abnormal” brain for the Monster, and then torments the creature until it becomes a murdering brute. Frankenstein himself can be considered “temporarily monstrous,” for he eventually sees the error of his ways by the end of the film, at which point it’s a case of too little too late, as he is heading face-down from the top of a burning windmill.
