Tim Burton Seems At Home With ‘Peculiar Children’ (Movie Review)

Perhaps it was just a matter of time until we saw director Tim Burton make a YA novel adaptation. It makes plenty of sense, as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children allows Burton to explore an entire household filled with loners, outcasts and “freaks”, as opposed to focusing on just one. Instead of following just […]

‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ Reflects An Improved Installment (Movie Review)

Perhaps it is the bitter taste still left in my mouth after having watched Tim Burton’s blockbuster that was Alice in Wonderland, but I have much warmer feelings towards this sequel, directed by James Bobin. Alice Through the Looking Glass may not be improving much on a sense of substance, but the level of design […]

Fly: Songs Inspired by the film Eddie the Eagle (Soundtrack Review)

I really can’t see how anyone could possibly listen to this album and NOT be compelled to take on the world!  It really doesn’t hold back on the positivity which makes it the best kind of music to wake up to on a Monday morning.  I’m sure there are some people who might find songs […]

There Are Colorful Lies In Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’ (Movie Review)

The chance to see a director switch gears and focus on something far separated from their previous work can be exciting.  As a Tim Burton fan, I do not fault him for making a lot of films that seem right up his alley.  That the recent output has not been as compelling as the films […]

Gerard’s Worst Films of 2012

This worst-of list will not be as long as my other Top 10 lists due to the fact that some films that were downright unwatchable weren’t even watched all the way through. I decided not to subject myself to them, so some of these selections will probably just get “honorable worst-of” mentions instead, or a […]

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Blu-ray Review)

This past summer, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter came and went through theaters without much of an impact.  It was not really a colossal failure, but it also did not do much to win over fans of a genre mash-up.  I read the book based on recommendations and obvious intrigue, due to the fact that it’s […]

‘Frankenweenie’ Is Brought To Life! (Via Stop-Animation)

This may be one of the more ironic results of the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again,” when it comes to filmmaking.  Back in 1984, director Tim Burton was fired from Disney for making a live-action short called Frankenweenie, which was deemed ‘too scary’ for children.  Now, for whatever reason, […]

Comic Con 2012: Frankenweenie Homage Trailer

Frankenweenie continues to be a a film I look forward to.  I love the fact that Tim Burton has revisited an idea he first made into a live-action short, but has now turned into a feature-length, stop-motion animated film (not to mention in both Black & White and in 3D).  It features a large voice […]
