COMMENT DU JOUR
DAY FOR NIGHT -another great movie about movies

I'm not sure if I like it more than 8 1/2 or Singing in the Rain, but when the majestic trumpet music plays, it reminds me of why I love cinema in the first place. The actors are terrific in this film as well. However, nothing will top Topsy-Turvy for me about the mystery,repetition, and heartbreak of the artistic process.❞ -Lars

looking forward to seeing Maclaine's work in DA... specially because I could barely understand a couple of words from the sneak peek in that low-quality video lol

Is Sigourney Weaver confirmed for the Avatar sequels? Didn't her character die?

Word. I too am alarmed by the BRAVE hate. I think a lot of women are going to feel a little shortchanged, but I still found it fairly solid and affecting. And I can't remember the last mother-daughter toon I saw...

Tangled? Or do you mean positively?

Oh wait sorry, that's stepmom. Carry on.

That Ropes of Silicon piece is kind of awful. Haven't even seen the movie - just the idea of taking Coats' practical, positive, common sense story telling advice and twisting it into a stick with which to attack the film's alleged shortcomings seems really off base. Seems clear to me that Brevet doesn't really get the creative process, and he certainly doesn't understand that his brand of snide, reductive, reflexively negative complaining is exactly the kind of thinking Coats' "rules" are intended to neutralize.

Wow- I totally agree. I get that he didn't like the bears, but that was complete overkill. His entire piece was vitriolic, and I feel like all he managed to do was discredit himself.
I can understand why people are reacting so strongly to Brave as a good/bad Pixar film. Most people love Pixar- and if not at least one of their movies. We all have an idea of what Pixar is and what it means to us. All of a sudden, now that Pixar's films are not aligning with our perception of Pixar, some people are freaking out. Anyone who disliked the film and is reacting like that needs to take a step back and realize how unfair they're being.
