‘Soul’ Filmmakers on That Big Emotional Moment, the Cat Conundrum, and More [Interview]

Soul marks another step forward for Pixar into fascinating narrative storytelling that is not only meant for young children. In fact, this may be the least kid-centric movie they’ve made in quite some time. Don’t get me wrong – the movie is very good and has plenty of the typical Pixar qualities we’ve come to expect from that studio. But a film about a middle school band teacher who finally gets his big break in music, only to quickly fall into a manhole and be whisked away to another plane of ...

Revisiting ‘Sky High,’ Disney’s Family-Friendly Superhero Film That Was Ahead of Its Time

(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.) For over a decade now, Disney has dominated the superhero film market thanks to the colossal success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But in the early 2000s, the thought of audiences getting not one, but multiple superhero movies each year was unthinkable, and a superhero movie that connected to a larger world of other heroes was but a mere wishful thought. Except D...

‘The Batman’ Trailer Breakdown: All the Clues and Details You May Have Missed

The Batman trailer arrived during DC FanDome, and it did not disappoint. Even though Matt Reeves and company only shot a small portion of the film before having to shut down production due to coronavirus, the filmmaker was still able to cut together a solid, atmospheric look at the latest take on the Dark Knight. It has the trappings we’d expect from a Batman flick: it’s moody, it’s gothic, it has lots of scenes of people standing in the rain. But it also looks different. Grungier. Scarier. It ...

The Top 10 Superhero Scores of All Time We live in a day and age where superhero films are a dime a dozen. It wasn’t always like that. Where Marvel more or less makes big-budget TV shows, Richard Donner, Sam Raimi and Tim Burton paved the way for superheroes with films like Superman: The Movie, Spider-Man and Batman. Sure, some of those films don’t hold up as well today, but, at the time, they were groundbreaking cinema. Part of what made them so special was the music that served as the hero...

Watch: Creating the Unconventional Music of ‘Becky’, the Indie Thriller Starring Kevin James as a Villain

Becky, the new indie thriller from directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (Bushwick, Cooties), earned lots of attention for casting the frequently goofy Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Kevin Can Wait) as a straight-faced, menacing neo-Nazi villain who’s willing to murder a child to get what he wants. But that’s not the only compelling aspect of this film: the score, from composer Nima Fakhrara (Detroit: Become Human, Crypto), uses several unconventional instruments, including children’s ...
