I never noticed that. Is it possible that DreamWorks actually does something important better than Pixar? As far as the human characters in the Brad Bird films, however, I think their eyes are waaay deeper than human eyes in DreamWorks films. It's not so much that the Pixar human eyes are so amazing...

Wow, they certainly rushed that out on DVD quick...before Ratatouille and the infamous trio of threequels. And yes, Steve Jablonsky who did the music is/was part of Zimmer's infamous ghostwriting team at Media Ventures, or as it is now called, Remote Control (how's that for an unfortunate name?) In ...

Wait, Ben, do you like M:I-III and J. J. Abrams or not? Or have you changed your mind? I thought the first and third movies were okay and reasonably enjoyable. Not on my "desert island" list, of course, but I wasn't expecting much anyways... I'm not really a Trekkie, but one thing that has always be...

No more Venom then? Well, makes sense since Raimi apparently didn't like him.

The premise for Kill Bill 4 sounds really neat.

Brad Bird seems to not like to have his villains explode or anything like that. Kent Mansley seemed to get it off easy as well. And I'm willing to bet that Skinner doesn't get caught in an oven and roasted to death, or eaten by Remy's friends from the inside out (PLEASE don't tell me what really hap...

Regarding the "really random" comment: I agree that James Newton Howard is an excellent composer, and I'm a big fan of his work. Unfortunately, Peter Pan is one score of his I haven't listened to. Also, Kathryn Beaumont apparently did the voice of Wendy (and Alice) in the 2002 video game "Kingdom He...

Regarding The Incredibles , I was actually glad that it didn't devolve into a Bruckheimer chaos-fest at the end, but instead focused more on the characters. I like action as much as anyone else, but there are times I want something deeper than just explosions and chases, especially at the end of a f...

Forgive me if this is said elsewhere, but I just got the print edition of Time and it says this about Pixar's next films: Wall*e (2008) The studio synopsis: "The year is 2700. Wall*e, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for." Andrew Stan...

Regarding Up , I kind of hope it's the Chapman project; she hasn't directed anything at Pixar yet, and I love her work at Disney and DreamWorks. But if it's the Docter or Rydstrom project, I won't mind at all. Although Pixar is my favorite animation studio, I'm glad they're making a film with a woma...

Just thought I'd chime in with my take on the action scenes. I've seen better, but I've also seen worse (such as Batman Begins, which I liked, but not as much as the Burton ones). What's interesting to me is that it was very hard to follow the first Peter/New Goblin fight in the theater, but it look...

Regarding Titan AE.... I'm a bit of a sci-fi/action buff, so I kind of liked it--I also liked Atlantis more than I know I should. But I can see how someone could not like it. The rock songs seem out of place, especially after the breathtaking opening and its musical underscore. The abrupt tone shift...

Personally, I found it less of a disappointment than Spider-Man 3, but I'm gonna have sort my thoughts about the movie overall.... One thing I still don't get from DMC is what that place is where Jack escapes from in the beginning with the birds eating those prisoners. I thought this would be explai...

Thanks everyone.

Ben: Yes, from what I've read, things get more than a little crazy around here, but it's the kind I can handle.

I hope.
