Frankenweenie (2012)

Easily his best movie since Big Fish, Tim Burton's black-and-white, stop-motion animated Frankenweenie is not a new idea. Frankenweenie already exists as a live-action short film, which Burton made while working at Disney all the way back in 1984. For his new feature, he went back to his original notes and sketches. In doing so, he seems to have re-discovered his passion for filmmaking. read more...

Treasure Planet (2002)

Taking a new approach for Disney's 43rd animated feature, filmmakers Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, etc.) departed a bit from a classic source, Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, to make this sci-fi hybrid. In a further hybrid, the film combines hand-drawn characters against computer-generated backgrounds and effects. The result is different, but not unpleasant. read more...

The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Many younger viewers won't understand the phenomenon of the yearly The Wizard of Oz television broadcast. When I was a kid in the days before video, we had to wait all year to see this film. It mesmerized and enchanted me, and my enjoyment was only enhanced by the fact that it was a fleeting thing. Moreover, I knew that kids all over my town -- probably all over the country -- were watching it at the same time. It was an event. read more...

Labyrinth (1986)

A guilty pleasure (or a cult classic?), Labyrinth is a made-for-kids movie with just enough weird stuff in it to appeal to teens (like a peeing goblin, a worm with a Cockney accent and an Escher-like chase scene). Not to mention that it was one of beautiful Jennifer Connelly's first starring roles. read more...

    Stuart Little (1999)

    The Little family lives in an old-fashioned house in New York City. This is not Martin Scorsese's New York. It's more like Doris Day's New York, filmed in rich color that looks like the Technicolor of the 1950's. Stuart Little himself is voiced by Michael J. Fox, and our acceptance of the movie depends on whether or not we like him. I did. But besides that, Stuart Little is a slight movie with more charm than plot. read more...
