    Brave (2012) – 27 Second Review

    Brave Poster

    Written by: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman, Irene Mecchi & Steve Purcell, based on a story by Chapman
    Directed by: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman & Steve Purcell
    Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane, Craig Ferguson

    Review: Given my Scotch-Cajun heritage, half of me has been very excited about Pixar doing something distinctly Celtic. As usual, they did not disappoint (just ignore all that recent Cars business). The animation was especially rewarding with all the scenery they got to play with, and Billy Connolly fights a Demon Bear. Which I’m sure has always been on his bucket list.

    Time: 16 seconds

    Stuff You Need to Know: Paradise Lost Movie Shelved; Milton Quits CAA

    Satan from Paradise Lost

    Dammit, I wanted that guy from The Hangover to play me!

    Need to stay up to date with pop culture news but don’t want to wade through 57 blog posts a day to do it? No worries. We do it for you: one post with only the most critical items so you can get it out of the way in one sitting. You’re welcome.

  • “Greedily Alex Proyas’ Paradise Lost engorged without restraint,/ And knew not eating death.” That’s right, the film has been killed due to budget issues. According to Variety, the technology to pull it off is still too expensive and the budget couldn’t be brought down to earth enough for Legendary Pictures. So whatever fantasy you had about Bradley Cooper in a satanic red loincloth or something will just have to remain inside your own heads. And really, the only person who needs to touch this project is Peter Greenaway. I’m just saying.

    15 British Radio Shows You Should Be Listening To

    BBC announcer

    It’s well known–much to the chagrin of my friend and compatriot, radio DJ Rob Levy–that I don’t listen to the radio. If I do manage to know something about what’s “new and hip” (or whatever the hell you kids are calling it these days (and get off my lawn)) on the radio, it’s either by accident or, more recently, because I stumbled across it on the “What’s New” tab of Spotify.

    However, what I mean is that I don’t listen to American radio. I listen to scads of British radio shows because, like television, they simply do it better. It occurs to me that some of you out there who also might want something different to listen to…you might need a guide as to what to look for. So I have snagged a list of fifteen…to give you a variety to choose from. Ken started me on this addiction and then I just went apeshit on my own with it. I listen to more of these shows on my iPod than I probably do music, frankly. Anyway, you get the show, when it was, who was on it, why you should give a damn, how you get it and what to look for if you want to try it out. A high point, if you were. Enjoy.

    Disney Schedule Through 2012

    Walt Disney Pictures logo

    Disney has announced the ten animated feature films that make up their new release schedule through 2012. Plus some Tinker Bell direct to video bits. And you really don’t want the hoobah of the press release talking about how great it is and ooh aren’t we lovely. No, let’s cut straight to the list.

    Oh, wait. You do want to know this bit, though:

    Starting later this year with the release of Disney’s “Bolt,” all Disney and Pixar animated features will be presented in state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3-D(TM). Additionally, newly converted 3-D versions of the beloved classics, “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” are set to debut in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Films are not presently scheduled past 2012 due to the impending singularity, or as John Hodgman would call it: Ragnarok.

    That last part we had mentioned previously. And I’ll go ahead and tell you: Incredibles 2 is not on the list. Damn you, Disney. Damn you for breaking my heart. Again.

    Oh, one last thing–where is Chazzie-award winning director Brad Bird? Making a live action co-produced film for Warner Brothers and Disney/Pixar, apparently, so he’s not on the list. Come back, Brad! Bring me my Incredibles sequel! Please!

    Okay, list. What follows is trimmed from their press release. Our additions and comments are in italics.

They find out that the Russian mob is moving in and kicking the owner of the place out…that night. After killing a couple of the thugs, they decide that the wrath of God is flowing through their veins, so the two of them go on a Russian mob killing spree and become heroes to the people of Boston. An FBI agent named Smecker (Dafoe) begins following the trail of these two renegades and learns something about himself in the process.
