Yes No Maybe So - Beauty & The Beast

"Nice teaser but it going to be hard for Disney to top one of their true masterpieces of animation" - Jaragon

 "I don't have high hopes for the principals either, but the real draw is the supporting cast. I'm a NO on McGregor's accent and a YES on McKellen, so put me down as a MAYBE SO." -BD

 "CGI chandeliers? Damn, DIsney, let them build a set." -Jacob

The Links (Are Out Today)

These Links Have Little Do With Oscars.
Woot! We're (almost) clear!
Movie|Line the new Spider-Man suit. Try to contain your excitement that it's the same as the old one with bigger eyes. 
Stale Popcorn the week in Kidmania. (It's so gratifying to enjoy Nicole Kidman with the whole world again.)
Salon a mash note to Bailey Buntainn (the mini Megan-Hilty) on the increasingly stellar Bunheads 
/Film The Coen Bros rewriting Unbroken for Angelina Jolie to direct. Whoa. Smart movie Angelina.
Coming Soon James McAvoy make take on the remake of The Crow... although given the concept of The Crow I fail to see why it needs a remake OR a reboot. The idea is that the crow moves on to a new fresh corpse once you've had your vengeance.

Oscar Leftovers
TMZ Quvenzhané Wallis causes an explosion in puppy purse sales (Courtney isn't the only girl that got excited about them.)
HuffPo a producer of the Oscar winning short Paperman kicked out of the Dolby for throwing paper airplanes on Oscar night! 
The Verge Oscar winning doc short Inocente is the first Oscar winner funded by Kickstarter. Methinks it won't be the last 
IndieWire behind the current vfx problem in Hollywood. What the Life of Pi winner was talking about before the orchestra drowned him out.  
Towleroad was "amazing" the most overused word at the Oscars? 

Oscar Commercials?
I hadn't even thought of this as a topic but two of my friends had something to say...
Kari Artwork did his own zombie unicorn painting inspire that Tim Burton Samsung ad? 
Tribeca Film Joe Reid on the movie-star commercials that aired during the program 

Today's Must Watch
David Bowie recruits one of his modern day descendants Tilda Swinton for his new music video. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS 

For her next art project I would like Tilda Swinton to star as David Bowie and remake all of his music videos.

As I mentioned for Electro: Did the production team SEE the Spectacular Spider-Man Electro costume? That's a genuinely cool update of the character that stays true to, at least, the rough concepts of the original look. Unlike "black leather jacket", if Jamie Foxx is correct about what they're going with. (Seriously, guys: This is 2013. The Avengers was last year. We're far beyond the days of The Matrix, where they needed to use those black leather jackets to make VFX an easier job.)

For how long is Jennifer Lawrence's disgusting face going to be on the banner? Every time I see a picture of her I want to vomit.

Off-topic, I just had a fantasy that Quvenzhane Wallis will blossom into my generation's Sally Kirkland, attending the Oscars every year until she's Emmanuelle Riva's age carrying ever-more-elaborate dog purses.

February 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHayden W

Glen -- not much longer... Saying goodbye to 2012 this week, next week we start fresh. New film year!

Hayden -- I love this. I wonder if Sally would like the comparison?

February 26, 2013 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Nathaniel, I'd be more concerned that Quvenzhane Wallis' people would be offended by the comparison. I'm basically hoping she becomes cray and irrelevant, by that logic.
