Ratatouille

Friday, June 29th, 2007

ratatouille-still-blog.jpg

Ratatouille is an ‘unique experience that strikes deep notes’. Read on:

It would be an overstatement to say that Ratatouille is something of a love letter to critics. But given the review-friendly pedigree of director Brad Bird, it’s not hard to imagine he is trying with Pixar’s latest film to pay subtle tribute to the folks who supported him when studios and audiences didn’t. Bird, who worked on lauded but viewer-deficient projects like The Critic and The Iron Giant, has since made good both creatively and commercially with the aptly-titled The Incredibles, and here celebrates all that is essential to artistic expression: freedom, enthusiasm and — of course — encouragement.

Much like its predecessor, Ratatouille has behind it the marketing muscle of the all-powerful Pixar, not to mention their own collection of four-star reviews and awards. But regardless of its size, its context or its commercial potential, Ratatouille is a triumph that not only pays tribute to the spirit of discovery, but revels in the fun of making a few of its own.

Steve Horn over at IGN.com interviews Rupert Grint (Harry Potter). Read on: Daniel Radcliffe was only 10-years-old when he first stepped into the shoes of the boy wizard Harry Potter. Now, as the fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, approaches so too does adulthood for Radcliffe and his co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. IGN.com was among a set of journalists invited to the Leavesden Studio sets to chat with the cast and crew, tour sets, and watch filming take place. We caught up with Dan for a few minutes in a field, moments after he had filmed a sequence just after the decision had been made to form Dumbledore’s Army, a student group Potter ends up leading.

Raimi’s Plan for Spidey 4

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

newspide3pics5.jpg

We found this video of Sam Raimi (on IGN.com) discussing the plans for Spider-man 4. Read on:

As Spider-Man 3 crawls out of theaters after its blockbuster run, director Sam Raimi is finally speaking more candidly about what he’d like to see happen in Spider-Man 4 and whether he will direct it.

When asked by MTV.com if he’d return to the director’s chair for the fourth installment, Raimi said, “If I can’t find the right story that would work for me and that I could tell really well, I would like someone else to tell that story. … But if it’s a great story and Sony will bring me back to the screen, I would love to.”

So who would he like to have battle Spidey next time around? “I would love to see Electro, Vulture, maybe the Sinister Six as a team. … But [Spider-Man 4] will probably have to start with the central journey of the main character to arrive at the proper villain.”

Getting Jiggy with Saw IV

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Saw4stil.jpg

We found this preview for Saw IV; the next scheduled release in the Saw franchise. Read on:

Surely by now the Saw franchise needs no introduction to most of IGN’s readers. The first picture in this horror series came in 2004, made by a pair of then Australian unknowns (director James Wan and scripter Leigh Whannell), and its huge success is often credited with having helped to launch the current “torture horror” movement. Studio Lionsgate has since followed with a sequel each year, with Darren Lynn Bousman taking over the director’s chair. (Some spoilers might follow, so consider yourselves warned.)

Saw IV is next for the series, scheduled for a Halloween 2007 release, with Bousman back as director. IGN recently caught up with the helmer, producer Oren Koules, and the series’ star killer, Jigsaw himself, Tobin Bell, to discuss the new film. The first topic that came up during our chat was the notion that four movies in four years seems like a real grind, but as Bousman sees it, the filmmakers are only serving a larger game plan.

A Mighty Heart

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

mighty-heart-5-blog.jpg

Angelina Jolie has given her best perforrmance to date in A Mighty Heart. Read on:

Despite its TV-movie-of-the-week title, A Mighty Heart is a compelling docudrama in the vein of Paul Greengrass’ United 93: a chronicle of actual events that we kind of know about, but are only now experiencing first-hand… appropriately in cinematic terms. Like Greengrass, director Michael Winterbottom favors handheld cameras and a more immediate approach to documenting his subject, but more than that, the two share a European (or at least non-American) sensibility that lends a greater degree of objectivity and, by extension, a greater universality to the story.

And while it may seem like poor encouragement to compare this to the best movie people were afraid to see in 2006, suffice it to say that A Mighty Heart should be significantly easier for audiences to endure, even if its story is just as powerful.

Told through the eyes of Mariane Pearl, A Mighty Heart documents the kidnapping of Daniel Pearl and the authorities’ (and his family’s) subsequent efforts to save his life. Angelina Jolie plays the very pregnant Mariane opposite Dan Futterman’s Daniel; true to her account of the events, most of the film is from her point of view, with only a few early scenes and flashbacks showing their interaction. This proves to be one of the movie’s strengths, as it refrains from dramatizing Pearl’s torture to either speculate what happened to him or to push unnecessary dramatic buttons.

Scorsese and De Niro to Reteam

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

scorsese-blog-copy.jpg

Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese will reteam for the ninth time:

After Robert De Niro reteams with his Heat and Godfather co-star Al Pacino for Righteous Kill, he will reunite with Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese for the ninth time for the crime pic Frankie Machine.

The long-gestating adaptation of Don Winslow’s novel The Winter of Frankie Machine will be produced by De Niro’s Tribeca shingle. DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com reports, “Scorsese is set to direct it for Paramount under his deal there.”

The site adds that the title has been shortened to just Frankie Machine, and that it is expected to be Scorsese’s next film following his Rolling Stones project.

Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Ocean’s Thirteen) penned the screenplay adaptation. Don Winslow’s official site had the following plot synopsis:

“Frank Machianno, aka Frankie Machine, retires from his life as a contract killer and begins a new life in San Diego. Far removed from any of the thrills of his mob life, he opens a bait shack on Ocean Beach Pier, runs three other legit businesses, and when nothing else demands his attention, puts his board in the water and rides the waves. Not a bad life for the 62-year-old Vietnam vet; at least most of the time it is quiet. Frankie’s life however returns to the tension, suspense and terror of the ‘old-days’ when the head of the Los Angeles syndicate calls in a marker, and asks him for backup during a meeting with members of the Detroit mob. The meeting is suppose to be an effort to resolve the current disputes between the two groups, but turns out to be a setup to end Frankie’s life.”
