That Shelf catches up with Dumbo's Production Designer Rick Heinrichs to discuss his work on Tim Burton's latest movie.

Before Gotham, Oswald Cobblepot was a gimmick-stealing villain in Sega's movie adaptation.
Anchored by a week long run of a restoration of The Godfather Part II, the TIFF Bell Lightbox takes a look at some of history's greatest sequels with their latest film series.
This week on DVD we look at the stellar Oscar winning foreign drama A Separation, Richard Linklater's unfortunately slept on Bernie, the direct to DVD efforts Breathless, A Girl Walks into a Bar, and the Dolph Lundgren starring One in the Chamber. Oh, and some indie film called The Hunger Games

Without rhyme or reason he watched Ghost in the Machine, Six Pack, Hear No Evil, Jack the Bear, The Pirate Movie, Quicksilver Highways, Tough Enough, a made for TV remake of Vanishing Point, and former NFL great Howie Long's first starring role in Firestorm. We don't fully know why he did it , either, but some of them were good!

Part two of Sasha's Tim Burton Takes Toronto examines the director's late 80s and early 90s work: Batman, Edward Scissorhands and Batman Returns. From 7 p.m. on Friday, November 26 to some ungodly hour on the morning of Sunday, November 28th, Torontonians were invited to TIFF Bell Lightbox to screen the entirety of Tim Burton’s filmography.
