  1. The link. QUOTE Johnny Depp's assault on mainstream popularity continues. His negotiations to star as Willy Wonka in Tim Burton's update of the children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continue apace, and it looks pretty much like a done deal.{C}
  2. Tim Burton's next is called BIG EYES, with Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams set to star, per Deadline. The film reunites Burton with ED WOOD screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. I dig the subject matter: Waltz, who’s coming off another Oscar turn in Django Unchained, and Adams, nominated for The Master, will play Margaret and Walter Keane, whose paintings of large eyed children became one of the first mass marketed art sensations in the 50s and 60s. Those prints sold in gas stations and every five and dime store across the country. While Walter was the marketing genius, he also took the bows for doing the brush work. He was a full fledged celebrity, a regular on the TV talk show circuit. His shy wife was the actual artist in the family. When they split and she tried to get her due, he painted her as being eccentric, and they ended up in court. There, a judge finally provided them with two easels and ordered them to prove it. Walter’s art reputation went down on the canvas when he begged off because of what he said was pain in his arm. She whipped up one of her trademark big-eyed works.
  3. So, thanks to Continental Airlines, I missed out on the LA screening for this film. And, thanks to the film studio, I will miss the Seattle screening because they've scheduled it for the same day as the LA Lord of the Rings junket. But next to Return of the King, there's no film I'd rather see RIGHT NOW than Big Fish, which stars Albert Finney, Jessica Lange, Ewan Mcgregor, Alison Lohman, Billy Crudup, Danny Devito, Steve Buscemi, and Helena Bonham-Carter. Anyway, while I was in LA, I heard a lot of praise for the film from the religious press critics who had made it to the screening. And now, one of those folks, Barbara Nicolosi, has chimed in with a blog-review: BIG FISH: SOUL (SEA)FOOD QUOTE I really liked this new film coming from Sony/Columbia Pictures. Based on the book by Daniel Wallace, the adaptation was helmed by Tim Burton and features a daunting school of actors ... [snip] This film is unlike anything else you have seen lately. It is a drama with strong fantasy and comedic elements - hearkening back to Forest Gump in tone and style. Screenwriter John August serves up a brilliantly crafted tale here that utilizes every fish in the cinematic sea to deliver a good story and some profound themes. Big Fish combines real poetic imagery, composition, the juxtaposition of images(editing, for short) where most movies barely even nod at these potentials. Burton does a great job reeling in humane and \"better than real\" performances from his talented ensemble. The film has several worthy themes - in the way that \"great art is about everything.\" Primarily, for the filmmakers, Big Fish is about the essential journey toward acceptance and reconciliation between fathers and sons. There is also a strong underlying premise about the role of stories in human life - why we love them, and why we need them - that I found lovely. Thirdly, the film offers a whimsical vision of what I can only call HOLY matrimony - which twenty-something, hip and stunning, actress Alison Lohman referred to as, \"Well, it's what we all really want, isn't it?\" Big Fish is entertaining, delightful, sad, provocative, fresh and well-crafted. After the screening, a group of us writer types sat in the car happily unraveling the metaphors and revisiting some of the films quirky and cool moments. Big Fish is the kind of film you bring your thoughtful friends too, so you can grow together through it and after it. Wow. She then goes on to defend the film's use of nudity, which is interesting considering the way she attacks Love Actually in the same blog for its misuse of nudity.
  4. About 30 years after Vincent, and 24 years after Beetlejuice, Tim Burton is still pretty much interested in the same things. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xD6yNqOrnQQ
  5. SDCC: Tim Burton's Next is Dark Shadows Tim Burton announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that once he's done with Alice in Wonderland, his next project will be Dark Shadows. The film will be based on the cult '60s supernatural TV show created by Dan Curtis. Johnny Depp is attached to play Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series. . . . ComingSoon.net, July 23 - - - Hmmm. How many Tim Burton films have NOT been spin-offs or re-makes? (Reasonably original projects in BOLD.) 1985 -- Pee-Wee's Big Adventure -- a follow-up to the TV show The Pee-Wee Herman Show 1988 -- Beetle Juice 1989 -- Batman -- a re-imagining of the comic-book series previously adapted as a serial in the 1940s and as a TV show with movie spin-off in the 1960s 1990 -- Edward Scissorhands 1992 -- Batman Returns -- a sequel to Burton's own Batman 1994 -- Ed Wood -- borderline: an original biopic that allows Burton to re-make scenes from 1950s B-movies 1996 -- Mars Attacks! -- based on a series of trading cards 1999 -- Sleepy Hollow -- a re-imagining of the popular Washington Irving story previously adapted several times, perhaps most notably as a 1940s Disney cartoon 2001 -- Planet of the Apes -- a re-make of the 1968 Charlton Heston movie 2003 -- Big Fish 2005 -- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory -- a re-make of the 1971 Gene Wilder movie 2005 -- Corpse Bride 2007 -- Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street -- an adaptation of the popular Broadway musical 2009 -- Alice in Wonderland -- a re-imagining of the popular Lewis Carroll story previously adapted countless times, including a 1950s Disney cartoon 201? -- Dark Shadows -- an adaptation of the 1960s TV series that was previously re-made for TV in the 1990s

    Ed Wood (1994)

    It's finally here!!! At least I hope it will be... last time I went to buy this on its former release date, it had been pulled from the shelves at the last minute. This is one of those movies that didn't particularly overwhelm me when it first came out, but has become one of my favorites over the years. Kinda the same reaction I had to my all time favorite Blade Runner. I love the fact that "Ed Wood" and "Winner of Two Academy Awards" appear together. Who'd ever have thought that?
  7. Looks like it's a good thing I didn't name my daughter Fiona.
  8. I just found out that Tim Burton is currently working on another film with Johnny Depp called The Corpse Bride. It's more akin to The Nightmare Before Christmas, as it is a stop-motion animation film. Depp is voicing the main character. Here's a picture from the film:
