Greek Weird Wave

Perhaps you saw The Lobster (stunning and strange dystopian love story starring Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell) or my recent Oscar favorite The Favourite (cheeky and wicked period drama with the powerhouse trio of Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, and Olivia Colman) or maybe you’ve been following him since 2009’s Dogtooth. All three are examples of the relatively new “Greek Weird Wave” cinema, from the genre’s godfather himself, Yorgos Lanthimos. It’s hard to find pieces on Weird Wave written in Engli...

Review: Tim Burton's Live-Action 'Dumbo' Movie Lives up to Its Name

Originally based on the storyline written by Helen Aberson and Harold Pearl, 1941's Dumbo was the fourth animated feature film made by Walt Disney Productions, following up Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Pinocchio (1940), and Fantasia (1940). Originally conceived as a short film, Dumbo was reworked as a low-budget feature to help recoup the financial losses of Pinocchio and Fantasia. Made for half the cost of Snow White, the 64-minute film turned a profit, earning $1.6 million during...

Every Terrence Malick Movie Ranked

Every Terrence Malick Movie Ranked An American filmmaker with a knack for capturing the immense beauty of everyday life, Terrence Malick has depicted everything from the creation of the universe to golden Texas farmland to the front lines of World War II to the Texas music scene with the same sweeping camera movements we’ve come to expect from him. Often copied but never truly matched in talent or skill, Malick is truly one of a kind. With only nine films to his name over the course of a car...

‘Dumbo’ Review: Tim Burton’s Remake Fails to Take Flight

Some stories are best left as they are. This is a fairly unavoidable takeaway from Tim Burton’s unnecessary live-action/CG remake of the Disney animated classic Dumbo . Though not remotely as noxious and garish as his 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland , Burton has not solved the puzzle of figuring out a halfway decent creative reason for this film to exist. An A-list cast, high budget, and all the other trappings of a modern blockbuster can’t get this thing off the ground. Much of t...

Film Review: Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’

The key image in Walt Disney’s 1941 “Dumbo” is something out of a fairy-tale daydream: Dumbo, the baby elephant with long-lashed goo-goo eyes, a cuddly grin, and ears as long and floppy as wings, flapping those ears to soar around a circus big top, flying over the crowds with a freedom as touching as it […]

Review: A Baby Elephant Suffers—and So Do We—in Tim Burton’s Dumbo Remake

There’s a peculiarly 19th-century sensibility at work in Dumbo, both the 1941 Walt Disney animated version and Tim Burton’s new live-action retelling. It’s as if, once the workhouses were abolished, we needed to find new ways to build character in children: Why not just rake over their nascent emotions by introducing them to an adorable…

10 Best Brendan Gleeson Movies

10 Best Brendan Gleeson Movies An Irish actor with three Golden Globe nominations, Brendan Gleeson has an instantly recognizable face and a familiar voice — perhaps most-known for his role as Mad-Eye Moody in the Harry Potter series, Gleeson has managed to establish quite the filmography over the years. Father of up-and-comer Domhnall Gleeson, it’s clear that Brendan’s talent is more than an acquired thing: it’s in the family’s blood. Often seen playing tough or charismatic leaders across fi...

‘Dumbo’ Clip and Featurette: Get Lost in Tim Burton’s Latest Cinematic Circus

Dumbo soars into theaters later this month, and will likely give Disney another box office victory after the outstanding performance by Captain Marvel this past weekend.

That’s why Disney is starting to make their big marketing push with the release of the first Dumbo clip, showing off the cute little blue-eyed, floppy-eared baby elephant. Th...

How Going Family-Friendly Helped Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’ Take Flight [Set Visit Report]

Tim Burton is distracted. He’s in the middle of directing the live-action adaptation of Dumbo, an ambitious, big-budget production that requires balancing fantastical and elaborate sets with even more fantastical visual effects. But I got the feeling that this harried appearance was just part of Burton’s nature — a million thoughts racing at once while he attempts to answer press questions. It’s a surprisingly energetic persona from a man who is famous for donning all black and a dour complexio...

New ‘Dumbo’ Trailer Makes Michael Keaton Feel Like a Kid Again

Disney’s animated classic Dumbo is barely an hour long, but director Tim Burton is going to flesh that out into a movie that’s right around two hours. We’re not sure how he’s adding a whole extra hour to the story outside of introducing a wide array of new human characters who take a keen interest in the little flying elephant, but a new Dumbo trailer shows off the circus spectacle of Disney’s live-action remake. And that floppy-eared, flying elephant just looks more and more adorable. Dumbo...

‘Dumbo’ Featurette: Can Tim Burton Make the Circus Magical Again?

The next live-action adaptation of one of Disney’s classic animated movies is Dumbo. Director Tim Burton is at the helm of the story of a little elephant who can fly, and you couldn’t ask for a better director to tackle a movie that’s set entirely in a traveling circus.
