The best films of TIFF's Platform Competition!
We talked to Dumbo producer Derek Frey about his long collaboration with the iconoclastic director Tim Burton, Frey’s own rise within Burton's company, and the challenges of avoiding repeating oneself.
That Shelf catches up with Dumbo's Production Designer Rick Heinrichs to discuss his work on Tim Burton's latest movie.
The live action Dumbo remake will win over families and Disney die hards, but what will Tim Burton fans think of this elephant tale?
Terrifying mad science, blood orgies and werewolf westerns have made Penny Dreadful's third season a delight to watch.
Penny Dreadful is dealing with century-old characters that have never left our nightmares, playing with our expectations and allowing us to rediscover the reasons these monsters are so transcendent.
The Salvation is not the art house neo-Western you may expect it to be, but more your basic bloody revenge story that offers up many of the thrills of grindhouse-era genre flicks.
Working with a bigger cast than he's ever had before, the melodrama White Bird in a Blizzard is an obviously plotted setback from Gregg Araki.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For fails to live up to its promises of being a fun, macho fantasy, instead delivering a bloated two-hour bore.
Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, or Vancouver on Thursday, August 21st, courtesy of Dork Shelf and eOne Films!
Although Zack Snyder might have moved on to only being a co-producer and co-writer to the Frank Miller inspired sequel 300: Rise of an Empire, the film delivers largely a carbon copy of the same material, slinging spears, swords, splatter, and splinters in slo-motion similarly, only this time it's incredibly boring to sit through.
While definitely closer in tone to what director Tim Burton should be making with his vivid imagination, wit, and eye for detail, Dark Shadows shouldn’t be heralded as a comeback for the director just yet. The potential for this film to serve as a middle ground between the big haired auteur’s beloved Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice feels somewhat squandered by a lightweight script and a really terrible final 20 minutes.
