Review: MoMA's Tim Burton Exhibit

December 1st, 2009 3:04pm EST
MoMA
The Tim Burton exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) opened this past Sunday in New York City to a crowd of more than 10,000 people going though it on its first day. MoMA and the SyFy Channel arranged to have us go on a private tour of the exhibit that spans four floors of the museum so we could check it out and report back to you some of the goodies that are currently on display.

The items in the exhibit were handpicked by MoMA curators who walked into Burton's London home, were greeted by a sofa full of oompa loompas and were informed outright that they had pretty much free reign...

Johnny Depp's Dream Role Is Really Odd

July 16th, 2009 8:43am EDT
Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp has his eye on a gender-bending movie role - he would love to portray singer/actress Carol Channing in a biopic.

The character actor has regularly donned a series of bizarre outfits for his films, and even dressed up as a woman for his starring part in 1994 comedy Ed Wood. And he's determined to go even further with a future role - by playing 88-year-old Channing.

He says, "My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do, she's amazing. With all the digital technology these days, I could probably pull it off!"

A Viewers Guide To Bad Movies. Really Bad Movies!

June 16th, 2009 10:58am EDT
Troll II
During this year's SxSW festival, a small documentary titled Best Worst Movie premiered to an enthusiastic reception. The film, directed by former child actor Michael Stephenson, follows the production of a small independently financed Italian-cum-American horror film titled Troll 2. Starring no one, and directed by an Italian exploitation film director with a scatter-shot grasp on English and titles like a Terminator knock off titled Terminator 2 under his belt (the title rights were available in Italy), the 1990 film was released direct-to-video and promptly faded from existence. The acto...

Overrated & Underrated Oscar Winners For Best Picture

February 16th, 2009 9:00am EST
Gladiator
Saying a Best Picture winner is overrated is quite simple. If you think a movie is terrible and it won Best Picture ipso facto it is overrated. But what about an underrated Best Picture winner?

By definition, it should be impossible for a Best Picture winner to be underrated. Why? Because they already won - so their greatness is recognized. It's like having an underrated Hall-of-Famer or underrated Adult Film Award Winner, it should be impossible.

That simply isn't true, however. There are several Best Picture winners that have been completely forgotten over the years, many...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
Clueless
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Turning Twenty: A Look Back At 1988's 'Beetlejuice'

March 31st, 2008 4:06pm EDT
Beetlejuice
Half "Bloody Mary" and half decomposing sleezeball, Beetlejuice is the titular anti-hero that helped put Tim Burton into the who's who of Hollywood. Now at its 20th anniversary, let's take a look back at a sparkling example of dark comedy that stands as a precursor to Burton's magical films.

The Movie

Reading the cast list will illicit at least one "oh yeah, he/she was in this" reaction. The ensemble would also make a 1990s romantic comedy cast director salivate: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, an appearance by the late Robert Goulet, and...

'Sweeney Todd' A Perfect Fit For Burton And Depp's Dark Sensibilities

December 18th, 2007 8:58am EST
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
''Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street'' is the quintessential Tim Burton movie, even though it springs from somebody else's celebrated mind.

Everything about Stephen Sondheim's revered musical, which provided the inspiration for the film, seems tailor-made for the director's sensibilities. Truly, what other filmmaker could tell the story of a vengeful barber (Johnny Depp) who slits his customers' throats and the lovesick baker (Helena Bonham Carter) who grinds up the dead bodies for her meat pies?

It's strangely beautiful and beautifully strange, with horrific subject m...
