    KUNG FU PANDA 2 Review

    Kung Fu Panda 2 stands as a shining example of DreamWorks finally getting the sequel formula right. Building off of the success of the original 2008 hit, Panda 2 delivers more laughs, larger scale, finer animation, and arguably more heart. Jack Black returns as the incompetently powerful Po the panda to battle the next stage in warfare that threatens to make hand-to-hand combat extinct. Joined by the Furious Five, the group wages war amidst the beautiful landscape of China in thrilling sequences of 3D combat that highlight the evolution of the fighting in the first film. With newcomer Jennifer Yuh at the helm, backed by the returning talents of writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger along with the full voice cast, Kung Fu Panda 2 is the latest animated film to blur the lines between the admiration from adults and kids alike, and brings bang for your buck in 3D

    Kung Fu Panda 2 :: rogerebert.com :: Reviews

    "Kung Fu Panda 2" is exactly as you'd expect, and more. The animation is elegant, the story is much more involving than in the original, and there's boundless energy. I enjoyed it as fully as I possibly could, given the horror of its 3-D. The original film, in 2-D wide-screen, was just fine.
    I may actually go see this before Hangover II...

    I may actually try to see this in a theater too(unlike the first one). Gary Oldman/Danny McBride as the baddies. Good stuff.

    Illumination Entertainment Acquires Film Rights to Uglydoll Franchise

    Chris Meledandri and his Illumination Entertainment banner have acquired the film rights for the cult plush doll line Uglydoll. The label responsible for films like Despicable Me and Hop will team up with Universal Pictures in bringing the line to the big screen. When discussing the acquisition with Deadline, Meledandri said of the Uglydoll franchise (created by the husband and wife team of David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim):

    “I remember the immediate appeal and connection that the characters had for me. They are simple in design, expressive in personality, and once I got to know David and Sun-Min, I learned there was a mythology and a world behind this,” he said. “The personality and level of wit reminded me of the illustrated work I saw from Matt Groening before he did The Simpsons.”

    First Look at David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS and Gris Grimley’s PINOCCHIO

    The Pinocchio puppet comes from Gris Grimly and Mark Gustafson’s adaptation of Grimly’s gritty but faithful graphic novel adaptation of Carlo Colodi’s famous story. We previously reported that Guillermo del Toro will be producing with the Jim Henson Company to turn the book into a 3D stop-motion animated feature. The production is also working from a script by composer/screenwriter Nick Cave (The Proposition). This puppet isn’t being used in the film, but it’s a model to show potential distributors. Hit the jump to check out both images

    REVIEW: Kung Fu Panda 2's Meandering Story Doesn't Dim Its Visual Delights | Movieline

    A quest movie that’s too long on destination to make for much of a journey, Kung Fu Panda 2 is nevertheless scenic, inventively playful, and successfully serious when it wants to be.

    EMMYS: ‘Family Guy’ Pleads For Emmy Love – Deadline.com

    For years, Family Guy producers had been asking for, sometimes even demanding, Academy votes in the show's Emmy mailers. They've now switched to begging. Following Stewie's turn as President Obama under the Vote For Change! slogan in the 2009 mailer and Peter Griffin's cover boy stint last year as the girl from Precious with the motto Vote For Us Or You're Racist, it's Stewie in the spotlight again. But gone is the cockiness, as the sad-looking prodigy is staring at the spider web-filled Family Guy trophy case.

    Now in its ninth season, Family Guy has yet to win a best series Emmy. It was nominated four times for best animated series and once, in 2009, for best comedy series. That year, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane famously pulled the show from the animation field to go against its live-action brethren in the top comedy series category. It worked, as Family Guy in 2009 became the first animated series in 48 years to nab a best comedy series nomination. The previous series to accomplish that was none other than The Flintstones, the Hanna-Barbera classic that MacFarlane is rebooting for a 2013 launch.

    After landing the landmark best comedy series nomination in 2009, Family Guy stirred controversy with the second phase of its Emmy campaign, which included staff writer Patrick Meighan breaking protocol by sending an email to TV Academy members begging them to vote for his show and the show producing six videos attacking its fellow best comedy series nominees. After coming up short last year with no best series nomination, the Family Guy team is trying a more subtle approach this year ... sort of. While going for the sympathy vote on the cover, the show is back to its trademark over-the-top self-deprecating sense of entitlement inside: "We paid for a Golden Globe and didn't get it, so we're owed an award."
    Oh Hell anyone who denies Family Guy/Seth McFarlane'S influence on the TVlandscape is fooling themselves, sure, the Simpsons paved the way...but that way has been BLOWN UP by Family Guy and all that have followed. A minor ANIMATED show that Fox tossed all over the place, not unlike FUTURAMA...good tv finds an audience.

    I will grudgingly admit the recent Yogi Bear did not look completely without merit

    Warner Bros. Hires Writers for YOGI BEAR Sequel

    Last December, Yogi Bear opened to just $16.7 million, a disappointing total for a family film during the holiday season. However, the CGI/live-action hybrid showed surprising legs, ending up with $100 million domestic and $200 million worldwide. According to Variety, Warner Bros. is encouraged enough to move forward on development for the sequel. The studio hired writing team Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia to script the project. Sternin and Ventimilia are two of the three screenwriters credited on the screenplay of the first movie (sorry, Brad Copeland) — the duo recently wrote for the more critic-friendly Rio and are currently working on Peabody and Sherman for DreamWorks Animation.

    Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake voiced Yogi and Boo-Boo, respectively. Anna Faris, Tom Cavanaugh, Andrew Daly, and T.J. Miller starred in the live-action roles — the report does not specify if there are any plans to bring them back for Yogi Bear 2.
