    Paranorman—movie review

    'ParaNorman' is the first of three horror-movie-inspired animated features this year, to be followed by 'Hotel Transylvania' and 'Frankenweenie'. Laika, the studio that gave us 'Coraline', is responsible for this tale, which assumes that kids will get the “joke” and not be distressed by its macabre ...

    Review: Brilliant Animated Movie 'ParaNorman' Is One Of The Summer's Biggest (And Best) Surprises

    This summer has been full of big, glitzy animated movies from most of the major studios that have made tons of money but left audiences cold. None of them were particularly imaginative, entertaining or emotionally involving, instead choosing to coast on a steady stream of solid (if not exactly dazzl...

    Beautiful Trailer, Bland Poster Debut For 3D Stop-Motion Animated ‘ParaNorman’

    2011 hasn’t exactly been an exceptional year for animated films. Besides this spring’s deliciously strange “Rango” and this summer’s gorgeous, supple “Winnie the Pooh,” there hasn’t been a whole lot to fawn over, animation-wise. (When Pixar unloads a colossal letdown like “Cars 2,” you know the medium is having an “off year.”) Thankfully, 2012 is poised to be an embarrassment of riches, with new movies from proven studios like Blue Sky (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”), Illumination ("The Lorax"), Disney ("Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie") Aardman (“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) and the beloved Studio Ghibli (“The Secret World o...

    'Let Me In' Star Kodi Smit-McPhee To Get Shakespearean As Benvolio In 'Romeo & Juliet'

    Already at a young age, Kodi Smit-McPhee has an eye for interesting, complex material. The actor first broke out starring alongside Viggo Mortensen in John Hillcoat's grim "The Road," and last year he shone in Matt Reeves' "Let Me In" as vulnerable Owen who discovers his beautiful neighbour played b...

    Kodi Smit-McPhee Joins Ari Folman's Animated Sci-Fi Pic 'The Congress'

    Ari Folman's "The Congress," his animated, sci-fi followup to "Waltz With Bashir," has been in development for a while now, with early footage unveiled last year at the Cartoon Movie symposium in Lyons, France, and we're glad to see it's still alive, moving forward and set to start shooting. But bef...

    film review: Let Me In

    Let Me In offers an unusual twist on the usual vampire tale. It’s gripping and unusual—unless you happen to have seen the Swedish film that inspired it, Let the Right One In, based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. If you did catch that striking Swedish import two years ago, ther...
