A preview of the incredibly opulent Civic Theater in Auckland, New Zealand. More photos and videos to come! Please forgive my delay in grabbing hold of 2010. I've been on a long, and long-overdue, vacation to New Zealand and Australia, and I'll be sharing some of my movie-related experiences and pictures with you in the weeks to come. (Here's a teaser: a detail from an incredible movie palace I visited in Auckland.) I'm also learning to become a blogger, which is very different from maintaining a quiet website, which I've done for the last decade. Sometimes weeks would go by without an update, because I was...

At the outset of a "life celebration" for the late Roy E. Disney on what would have been his 80th birthday on Sunday, Disney chief Robert Iger surprised and delighted a packed house at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood by announcing that the studio's animation building in Burbank--the one with the whimsical Mickey Mouse Sorcerer's hat--will now bear Roy's name. A long, loud cheer went up from the crowd as an artist's rendering of the new building facade was beamed onto the theater screen. What a perfect tribute to the man who rescued Disney animation from possible extinction in the 1980s and oversaw its renaissance. John Lasseter also pointed out that it was Roy who was responsible for...

Over the years, Terry Gilliam has become something of a brand name, leading moviegoers to expect a generous display of visual razzle-dazzle and an offbeat sensibility; the problem often lies in his story or screenplay. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, written by Gilliam and his frequent collaborator Charles McKeown, is one of his better endeavors: a bit rambling, but enjoyable. Christopher Plummer plays the title character, who...

Crazy Heart is the movie equivalent of comfort food; reassuring, familiar, and easy to digest. It’s Jeff Bridges performance that makes it special...but then, he’s reason enough to see almost any movie. (He’s the best thing about the season’s most disappointing movie, The Men Who Stare At Goats.) Here, he plays a weather-beaten country...

Remember when it was fun to go to the movies? That feeling of enthusiasm, bordering on sheer abandon, that’s largely disappeared from the moviegoing experience was recaptured at World 3-D Film Expo II at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood this month.
