Alice in Wonderland (2010) - Weekly Pick

Tim Burton is an incredible artist. He's got his whole Burtonesque World to play in and invites us in once in a while...whether we want to or not.

He's always got a robust entourage, this year it's Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and Crispin Glover to name a few, in an Alice in Wonderland type tale. And you may wonder, isn't this Alice in Wonderland? And I may wonder right there with you. Is it?

It's soooo Burtonesque. So, so Burtonesque. Which is not a bad thing! No, it's not. There just comes a time and a story where you'd rather not have Fried Burton for dinner. But, you didn't cook it did you? No. So shut up and eat your movie. It's gonna be spicy and you'll be hearing from it again in about three hours, but it'll be worth it. Just open your mouth and forcibly suspend your disbelief. Let Hathaway, take you away...

Project by superman at FLiXER (February 27, 2011 - 8:10am)
Topher Grace and Teresa Palmer relive the last decade of decision in a surprisingly emotional "romp" that's homage to the 80s teen movie. Like SUPERBAD and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, both happening to have have starred Michael Cera, Kids In America's story arc will cover one life changing night, but a little less irreverent, a little more life. Also stars Michelle Tractenberg (goth it up baby!) and Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Michael Ian Black and Michael Biehn.

Mischa Barton - 5150, 5151 Whatever It Takes...

Mischa's been placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold (also known as a 5150) by the Los Angeles Police Department and is currently at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, reports Access Hollywood. The next 72 hours could bring serious soul searching and seriously hot photo-shoots of her in white. Defamer says she missed her comeback in New York tonight by missing the premiere of her new movie, Homecoming. Or, just maybe, the comeback starts with 72 hours of crazy... And in all seriousness, we all hope she's just "actor crazy" which can be fun and exciting, and not anything else, which is...

Tony Conte Blog Image - FLiXER

He's known for many films such as Edward Scissorhands, 9, Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland (2010), Planet of the Apes, and many more. When people think of his name, the first thing that would pop in their head would be the old classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Why? Well, let's see. In The Nightmare Before Christmas trailer, the narrator clearly says "From the imagination of Tim Burton comes ..." yet the the real epitome for TNBC is really Henry Selick. For the movie Coraline, the tagline reads '...

JULIE & JULIA (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

Julie & Julia (2009) It's Nora Ephron! It's Amy Adams! It's Meryl Streep! Very good master of the obvious, action junkie 35 year-old kiddie - you have described the movie's "chick lineage" accurately and succinctly. Now go back to your buffo wings and let the adults talk.
