33rd Annual Annie Nominations Are Out Opens in new window

OK, so they're not exactly the Oscars, but as a longtime animation aficionado, I thought it'd be fun to cover the 33rd Annie Awards, which celebrate excellence in (what else) the art of animation. "DreamWorks and Aardman garnered an amazing total of 25 nominations, more than any other studio, and with the two movies which received by far the most nominations..." More...

Tomatometer Report: "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" is the Best Reviewed Film of the Year Opens in new window

Two of this week's wide releases, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Red Eye," would appear to have little in common. One is a comedy that mixes sentimentality with the profane, and the other is a Hitchcockian thriller aboard a plane. Yet both films are among the best reviewed of the year. More...

If you remember the goofy ol' teaser for "Ice Age," then you'll probably get a kick out of the all-new trailer for "Ice Age 2: The Meltdown." Yes, it's more acorn-lovin' lunacy from freaky little Scrat, and it's a great peek at the lovely animation from Blue Sky Studios. More...

Critical Consensus: ?Ring Two? Bores, ?Ice Princess? Charms Opens in new window

Sequels are not doing well this month as two weeks ago, critics gave a tepid response to "Be Cool," the sequel to "Get Shorty." This week, DreamWorks' "The Ring Two," the second sequel released this month, receives a similar response. As in the case with "The Pacifier" where it served as counter-programming to "Be Cool," Disney opens another family comedy, "Ice Princess," to compete with "Ring Two." However, unlike the week "Be Cool" was released, where it was not a matter of which film critics like more, but rather which they dislike the least, there is a fresh movie to choose from this week.

After a couple weeks of predominantly Rotten wide releases, it?s great to finally have a Fresh film this weekend. The makers of the critical and box office animated hit ?Ice Age,? which currently holds the record for best opening in March with $46.3M, will try to best that mark with the animated family comedy ?Robots.? For the more mature action crowd, Bruce Willis returns to the big screen with the actioner ?Hostage.? Mel Gibson will also try to add to the tally of his record-breaking box office hit ?The Passion of the Christ? with a tamer, re-cut version. More...
