So, in the place of a CINEFANTASTIQUE PODCAST in which we discuss our top ten lists for 2010, we give you a CINEFANTASTIQUE POST-MORTEM in which we discuss doing a show in which we discuss our top ten lists for 2010. Who knew a little thing like a holiday weekend was going to interfere with our plans?
Oh, Steve Biodrowski also delivers his verdict on the Surprisingly Not Intolerable YOGI BEAR; and Lawrence French and Dan Persons join him in an evaluation on the original TRON’s retro-future, and on the evocative Japanese horror film, ONIBABA.
Maybe not the Lionel train set you wanted under your tree, but at least it’s not a boxful of underwear. Click on the player to hear the show.
Hoping for a success along the lines of ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, Warner Brothers Pictures releases this live-action film version of the old television cartoon. Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake provide the voices of the computer-generated Yogi and Boo-boo. Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, T.J. Miller , Nathan Corddry, and Andrew Daly head the human cast. Eric Brevig (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH) directed, from a screenplay by Jeffrey Ventimilia & Joshua Sternin and Brad Copeland, about a documentary filmmaker (Faris) who travels to Jellystone Park to shoot a project and soon crosses paths with Yogi and his sidekick Boo-Boo, who needless to say are in hot pursuit of pic-i-nic baskets.
