That's too bad. I'm still seeing it, though. Regarding the score, though, the more I listen to it, the more I like it. Williams's new sound (since around AI or so) definitely gets some getting used to for me. Kind of like Goldenthal, but that's another story. One trait he's picked up that I'm not pa...

Regarding The Bear and the Bow: Please don't be another Quest for Camelot! Although I have tons of faith in Brenda Chapman.

The soundtrack clips on Amazon sound fantastic. Intersting to hear that little Nazi motif from "The Map Room: Dawn" from Raiders.

Surprising that the first made so much money. I thought my family were the only people on the planet who played Chipmunk CDs at Christmas

According to the official site, it's been rated PG-13 for "adventure violence and scary images." No real surprises there. As I side note, I'm really looking forward to this film's soundtrack. I can only hope that we'll get seventy-something-plus minutes of brilliance. The agonizing three-year John W...

The long-awaited Brenda Chapman project finally arrives--with a female as the central character! I hope The Bear and the Bow will be something special, even by Pixar standards. Looking forward to the return of Musker and Clements and Keane's debut as well. The majority of Pixar's slate makes up for ...

Yeah, I remember some of the deleted scenes in Incredibles bordered on the slightly more adult. In particular the "Bob in Traffic" scene where Bob gets flipped off (it's cut off the top of the screen, but most adults would know what he's doing) and Bob's response. (I don't want to offend anyone by t...

How about Brave Little Toaster ? I know it has a fairly strong following, but it often seems to be ignored. I liked its slightly independent, quirky feel. It also has some parts that I found to be mildly alarming as a child, such as when Kirby the vacuum cleaner sees the waterfall, the air condition...

Agreed. "I mean to have that bell!" haha, yeah.
Wow. I haven't seen Hunchback 2, but that sounds absolutely hideous.

Personally, I think I'll wait and hear from the actual creators of the film regarding the characterization of Eve as a "female." Maybe Pixar is trying to do something different than the male-bonding stories that they, and feature animation in general, have been doing in the past. There's Buzz and Wo...

Finally, a bit of official news about the movie starts trickling in.... Looks like Disney/Pixar are going to be involved after all. I read the book once I heard Brad Bird was going to direct this, and I must say, it's not the best thing I've ever read. The plot is okay, but it's not particularly wel...

Probably to get everyone to buy Blu-Ray. By the time I'm old enough to afford that, I'll be old enough to be drawing Social Security. Oh wait, I'm a post-boomer, so there'll be no money left....

Yeah, let's hope Janusz Kaminski can get away from that Lost World/AI/Private Ryan/Minority Report/War of the Worlds look and capture what made Douglas Slocombe's photography of the originals so brilliant. My opinions may not be as strong as some, but I definitely like the third Indy film better tha...
