    AFI Fest Review: 'Rise of the Guardians' Is An Animated Yuletide Treat | The Playlist

    And the results really are wondrous. There are a number of jaw-dropping moments where the visual wizardry is enough to trump any narrative stumbling blocks that the movie might have previously faced. And Lindsay-Abaire, for his part, tries to insert just enough pathos to make Jack's journey emotionally and intellectually compelling. Pine perfectly balances the hubris and heart that made his Captain Kirk so affecting (and, to a lesser degree, his hothead conductor in Tony Scott's underrated "Unstoppable"). Jack Frost isn't the flashiest character (or performance) in the movie, but it's a hoot nonetheless. There's also a meta-textual quality to Pine's performance, too, given that true immortality, in cinema, is only accomplished by providing the voice to an animated character. In two hundred years, some parent will need to calm their kids down for an hour and a half, and they'll throw on "Rise of the Guardians." Now that's mythological. [B]

    Really sad story behind this too. It started out as a childhood story told to the writer/director's young daughter who recently died from(I think) a brain tumor. So yeah, I am rooting for this one to do well.

    RISE OF THE GUARDIANS Reviews | Collider

    With Rise of the Guardians opening November 21, last week I got to see the finished film at DreamWorks Animation and it’s really well done. Not only is the animation great to look at, it’s got a strong story that’s character driven and it doesn’t rely on stupid jokes. In addition, unlike most superhero films that spend half the time introducing characters by explaining their origin and showing off their powers, what’s fantastic about Rise of the Guardians is we join almost everyone in the middle of the story. I wish more “origin” stories would do this.

    PADDINGTON Movie Synopsis | Collider

    This synopsis likens the film to E.T. and Mr. Bean, as the story centers on a young bear that was raised as an anglophile by his Aunt Lucy in Peru and is left lost and alone at London’s Paddington Station when Lucy decides it’s time to go to England in search of a better life. While staying with a kind family who takes him in, Paddington sets out in search of an explorer who inspired his aunt years before, avoiding a sinister taxidermist and unintentionally bringing comic mayhem. Hit the jump to read the full synopsis.
    This should be adorable...and the foreign-ness of the whole thing will probably alienate everyone. Especially if it opens against something more easily digestable.

    Doc NYC Review: 'Persistence of Vision' Is A Heartbreaking Account Of A Thwarted Animated Masterpiece | The Playlist

    When Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis needed a team to provide animation for their ambitious hybrid "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," they didn't turn to their own team at Disney Feature Animation who, with "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves," singlehandedly invented the animated feature (and was responsible for the medium's continued popularity). Instead, Spielberg and company turned to Richard Williams, an eccentric, Canadian-born animator who ran an animation studio and ad agency in London and who, quite recently, had been responsible for developing a technology to shade animated characters that were inserted into live action plates. The collaboration was a rousing success, netting Williams a pair of Oscars, but his directorial debut, "The Thief and the Cobbler," wasn't so lucky. "Persistence of Vision" explores the monomania of a man determined to push the envelope of the medium, until the envelope explodes.
    This looks pretty good.

    Will 'The Simpsons' Finally Win an Oscar? | The Wrap Awards

    The Academy has narrowed its list for the Animated Short Award from 56 to 10, it announced on Friday, and that list includes “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Longest Daycare.’” The short, written by “Simpsons” lifers like James L. Brooks and Matt Groening, aired before screenings of “Ice Age: Continental Drift.”
    I got $10 that says Paperman wins it.
