Toy Story 2 - now in 3D!

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Sat, 23/01/2010 - 17:04

Toy Story 2

There won't be many people around who haven't seen Toy Story 2 – on TV or DVD, at the very least. But how many have seen it like this? In the runup to the release of Toy Story 3 in 3D in June (in the US; July in the UK), the geniuses at Pixar have dusted off the original two films, rerendered them in glorous digital 3D and given us fans of Woody, Buzz and the gang another chance to see them back on the big screen where they belong. Toy Story 3D was in cinemas last October; Toy Story 2 in 3D opened across the UK yesterday, and you've got just two weeks to see it. I suggest you do.

With the success of last year's Let The Right One In and the forthcoming Hollywood remake Let Me In, Swedish cinema is on the up. Also making a splash over the last few years in the literary world are the novels of Stieg Larsson and his Millennium trilogy, the first of which is called The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Armchair Viewing: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006)

Posted by Neil Davey | Sat, 23/01/2010 - 11:33

"In the period of which we speak, there reigned in the cities a stench barely conceivable to us modern men and women. Naturally, the stench was foulest in Paris, for Paris was the largest city in Europe. And nowhere in Paris was that stench more profoundly repugnant than in the city's fish-market. It was here then, on the most putrid spot in the whole kingdom, that Jean-Baptiste Grenouille was born on the 17th of July, 1738."

Max: "What did he do to you?"

Vincent: "What? I should only kill people after I get to know them?

What’s it about?

Astroboy: behind the scenes

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Thu, 21/01/2010 - 13:09

The character of Astroboy has an interesting history. He began life in the 1950s as a Japanese comic book (aka manga) and then moved to an animated Japanese TV series in the 1960s. As a kid in Australia in the 1970s, I grew up watching Astroboy, which was dubbed into English – although the Americans made their own TV version in the 80s, which I never saw (but from what I remember, it was pretty popular). Now there's a new CGI film version , produced by Imagi Animation Studios. I guess you can't really call it a remake, because this is the first big-screen version of Astroboy.

Armchair Viewing: The Beach (2000)

Posted by Justin Bateman | Thu, 21/01/2010 - 07:36

Richard, this is just the kind of pretentious bullshit that Americans always say to French girls so they can sleep with them.

What’s it about?
A young American called Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio) travels to Thailand in search of whatever it is young people who travel go in search of. Unexpectedly he comes into possession of a map which apparently is the location of a virtually unknown tropical paradise. On finding it, he discovers that he's by no means the first and joins the incumbent commune for a life of leisure and pleasure. But it's not long before it all starts to go horribly wrong.

Armchair Viewing: Pulp Fiction (1994)

Posted by Justin Bateman | Wed, 20/01/2010 - 07:39

I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

What’s it about?
Three stories involving a boxer, some hitmen, a briefcase and a gangster's moll all intersect. Needless to say it's complicated but although it's not really about anything a hell of a lot happens.

Armchair Viewing: The Wind That Shakes The Barley (2006)

Posted by Neil Davey | Tue, 19/01/2010 - 14:45

I tried not to get into this war, and did, now I try to get out, and can't"

What’s it about?
Damien (Cillian Murphy) and his brother Teddy (Padraic Delaney) couldn't be more different. Teddy is the leader of a guerilla squad fighting for Irish independence from the British oppressors, Damien has recently graduated from University College and is about to take a place at a London training hospital. Just before he leaves for London though, Damien witnesses the Black and Tans commit an atrocity and it's all the impetus he needs to join his brother's resistance group. When a truce is eventually signed, it splits the resistance, leading to a civil war - and Teddy and Damien find themselves fighting on opposite sides.

'I've never been asked to do Harry Potter and I'm furious'

Whether you're old enough to remember Jackanory and the Wombles, or young enough to think Christopher Eccleston was the first person to play Doctor Who, you've probably seen (and heard) plenty of Bernard Cribbins. Most recently seen as Wilfred in Doctor Who, Cribbins was at the BFI this weekend to discuss his career and introduce a screening of Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 AD, having recently scooped a Special Award at the Children’s Baftas.

I have crossed oceans of time to find you.

What’s it about?
A London estate agent is sent to do business with an old Count at his isolated home in Transylvania, but soon discovers that the rich nobleman is not all he seems when he is imprisoned in the vast haunted castle.
