Flim Weakly Review- Welcome To Marwen

Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it's wrong. Welcome To Marwen cannot be truth, because it's made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also

Flight (2012)

It's good to have Robert Zemeckis back making standard movies without any motion-capture or 3D shenanigans. I don't always love everything that he does, but his obsession with his FX and animation toys was, at one point, looking likely to…

A Christmas Carol (2009)

Disney's A Christmas Carol (2009) is a new take on an old story. Charles Dickens' classic novel has seen many film adaptations, but none compare visually with director Robert Zemeckis' motion capture animated version. With the exception…
