“Bob Balaban's (the actor) family — they were the big Chicago theater family,” Fosbrink says. “They pioneered the idea of these grand movie palaces, 2,000 to 5,000 seats. Barney Balaban sold it to Paramount and became President of Paramount Pictures.”.
Paris, 1910. Panic sweeps the city as floodwaters rise and a monster is on the loose! Meanwhile a wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend, and a madcap monkey are on a mission to protect the beast, Franc, as he holds a rare and special talent. With the help of the beautiful but feisty singer Lucille, the team harbors the monster to keep him from the ghastly wannabe Mayor, Commissioner Maynott, who has a plan to capture Franc and reveal him to be nothing more than a monstrous danger to the people of Paris. From Bibo Bergeron, the director of Shark Tale, and starring Adam Goldberg, Jay Harrington, Bob Balaban, Sean Lennon, Vanessa Paradis, Danny Huston and Catherine O?Hara, A Monster In Paris is presented in stunning 3D for a spectacularly fun experience for the whole family. The CGI/3-D animated film A Monster in Paris is a charming but slight musical comedy-adventure from France enlivened by an offbeat premise, some lovely songs, and an impressive visual style. A critical hit, if not a box-office champion in its native country, the film, directed by veteran animator Bibo Bergeron (Shark Tale), has been redubbed for English-speaking audiences by a capable cast of American actors, though the speaking and singing voice of Vanessa Paradis has been ported over from the original French version. Set in a romanticized Paris circa 1910, Monster follows a pair of hapless heroes (voiced by Jay Harrington and Adam Goldberg) who accidentally transform a common house flea into a 7-foot-tall, anthropoid being with a marvelous singing voice (provided by Sean Lennon in the English dub). With the help of cabaret singer Lucille (Paradis), the creature develops a following as a nightclub performer (!) while avoiding the machinations of the local police commissioner (Danny Huston). The unusual subject matter, combined with a slower pace and less technically extravagant animation than most stateside animated efforts, might be a stumbling block for younger viewers (though the
This 30-minute horror/fantasy anthology series follows in the vein of The Twilight Zone. Each week presents another standalone story of horror fantasy, and/or science fiction. Some episodes are gruesome, a few are of a lighter comedic style. Like many such shows, Tales. adapted the work of famous genre authors of the period such as Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. Many episodes also featured veteran actors of the 40s and 50s that saw very little work in their later years. A longtime favorite among fans of small-screen terror, the first season of the syndicated anthology series Tales from the Darkside (1983-1988) finally arrives on DVD to bring a new generation of viewers into its murky domain. The brainchild of producing partners George Romero (Night of the Living Dead) and Richard Rubinstein (Dawn of the Dead 78 and 04), Darksides stories hewed closer to such straight-ahead fright fare as Night Gallery than the speculative fiction of The Twilight Zone or Amazing Stories (Darksides chief competitor for viewers in its early season). Episodes revolved around deals with the Devil ("Ill Give You a Million," "Pain Killer"), paranormal phenomena and black magic ("Levitation," "Snip, Snip"), the unquiet dead (Robert Blochs "A Case of the Stubborns," starring a young Christian Slater) and monsters both human ("The Anniversary") and otherwise ("In the Closet," directed by effects legend Tom Savini). Budgetary restraints blunted some of the shows special effects, and while those havent improved with time, the best of the first-season episodes-"Closet," "Stubborns," and the Romero-penned pilot "Trick or Treat"-still retain the power to raise hairs in their brief running time. Other technical aspects remain solid, with scripts written by or based on stories by Stephen King, Harlan Ellison and Michael McDowell and stars like Danny Aiello, Victor Garber and Justine Bateman. The entire first season is compiled edit-free on the three-disc set;
A musical of outsized passions as only Andrew Lloyd Webber could compose, Sunset Boulevard trades in hyperbole. "The greatest star of all," in the words of Max, her homme d'affaires, Norma Desmond is camp drama queen extraordinaire. With Glenn Close in the role, reprising her Tony-winning performance of 22 years ago at the Palace Theater, Norma is petit as she is large. Need dominates her manipulations so acutely, only the powerhouse chops of the actress who put the word fatal in Fatal Attraction could pull off this tour de force of fragility and grand delusion. Descending a staircase on a set that also includes a 40 piece orchestra, spare enough to feature projections of old Hollywood, its streets, cars, and populace partying away, Norma Desmond is at home in a mansion of many rooms including one over... Close brings to "As If We Never Said Goodbye," an aching glimpse into celebrity culture, once it leaves you in the shadows. Set off by that famous readiness for her closeup, Norma Desmond takes the stairs with crumbling majesty, and a light, shattering dance across the stage. Webber has the distinction of having four musicals currently on Broadway, Sunset Boulevard, with book by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, joining Phantom of the Opera, Cats, and School of Rock. On opening night this week, a crowd that included Bernadette Peters, Gabriel Byrne, Gayle King, William Ivey Long, Bob Balaban, and Lena Hall, filled the Palace to capacity. Cheers for Norma Desmond never stopped, for each solo, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's operatic music, its repetitions and treacly tropes ripening to crescendo. The festivities moved on, despite the day's big snow: at Cipriani 42nd Street, Michael Xavier said the most difficult part of playing Joe Gillis was singing "Sunset Boulevard," because he had to pause, talk to the audience, and drink, then go back... Fred Johanson, a bald Max, Norma's enabler said, his greatest challenge was holding back, not taking his fawning indulgence in "The Greatest Star of All," too far. Siobhan Dillon who plays Betty Schaeffer, Joe's writing partner and true love, said, she had to make the most of little stage time. "A performance for the ages," a theater insider enthused of Glenn Close's Norma Desmond: that praise did not feel like hyperbole.
