Reel: THR Award Roundtable – Actors and Writers

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

The Hollywood Reporter is posting their series of roundtable discussions with the contenders of this award season.  We have posted below both full length videos of The Writers and The Actors discussions.  They are both great, it’s always nice to hear what these guys really have to say, you can’t find this on daytime or late night programming as that often becomes just a schmooze fest with predetermined talking points.

Delayed Reaction: Toy Story 3 (spoiler free)

Toy Story 3

When I first learned of another sequel to the already perfect film set that is Toy Story and Toy Story 2 I’ll be honest, I was scared.  I immediately felt betrayed by the team at Pixar as I jumped to conclusions as to why they wanted to make another film.  It didn’t occur to me that maybe there was more to tell, something more to say to bring it all full circle.

The journey myself and much of the world took with these toys was one of reminiscence, for the older audience the days of young were behind us and we embraced these toys as if they were at one point our own.  For the young, it gave them a chance to believe – believe that the childhood they were living could last forever with a bit of imagination and a big toy box.  What am I getting at?  Toy Story 3 is the best movie of 2010 thus far and should be nominated for Best Picture when award season comes around.  I had high expectations walking into the film and upon exiting; I knew each of those expectations were exceeded beyond words.  I saw the film weeks ago and can just now put to you how perfect this movie is.  How’s that for hype?

The packed theater stood and cheered when the credits fell, some wiping away tears – older members hiding it with the fake search for their wallet and keys.  It’s another masterpiece by Disney/Pixar that touches on nostalgia to please every possible moviegoer there is.  The final act will have you on the edge of your seat – amazed at what powerful animation, music and storytelling can do for us.  This is what a movie should do; this is why we love them.  It’s worth the wait in line, worth the ticket price and worth the crying baby a few rows over.

Toy Story is a series that will last to infinity and beyond (had to do it), it’s funny, inventive, touching and thanks to this final act; it’s flawless.  The trilogy brings to an end an amazing set of movies that must be cherished.  It’s a story about leaving the past with fears of moving on.  Something we all must come to terms with.

A perfect conclusion to a perfect movie trilogy.  For the folks at Pixar, I have one question for you: Where do you get those wonderful toys?

Anyone who claims they beat this game is a filthy liar.

Anyone who claims they beat this game is a filthy liar.

Today’s Links are Brought to you by: Chakan: The Forever Man, a Sega video game released 1992. The game featured an uncommonly dark premise for the time of its release.  The game is well-known, and loathed by many for its unusually high difficulty level, but still retains a dedicated, if small, fanbase.  I still get angry about this game and I haven’t seen a Sega System in over a decade.  We owned this game in the mix of gems like Battletoads and Bubsy, and never got close to beating it.  We got so desperate one night to get past a level that we asked our Dad  for help.  I never saw more than the first level, gutted.  Someone reviewed it, take a look.

michael keaton is ken

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Two facts about Michael Keaton; he hates cold soup, he’s totally underrated (see Desperate Measures) and misused (don’t see Herbie Fully Loaded).  Ok I think that was 3, speaking of 3…Keaton will be playing Barbie’s main squeeze Ken in TOY STORY 3 next summer.  Awesome.   [Says: Empire]

Director Lee Unkrich said that, “Barbie is back, and this time she plays a bigger role. So naturally we had to bring in her companion Ken this time. And we can announce today that he’s voiced by Michael Keaton. He worked with us on Cars, where he voiced the bad guy, and he was a blast to work with so we invited him back as Ken.”  Boring.  Here is some education on prostitution:
