FRANKENWEENIE
2012, Walt Disney Pictures, 87 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton

This stop-motion animated salute to the 1931 classic FRANKENSTEIN is based on a live-action short that director Tim Burton made while working at Disney in the 1980s. When his dog Sparky is hit by a car, young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) puts his science lessons to work, reanimating the deceased pet - the first of many creatures unleashed when the boy’s classmates copy his work. With Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau and Winona Ryder. An Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature.


WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE
2009, Warner Bros., 101 min, USA, Dir: Spike Jonze

In Spike Jonze’s lyrically atmospheric adaptation of the classic Maurice Sendak picture book, Max Records stars as Max, a young boy who throws such a temper tantrum that he is transported to a world of bellowing beasts and jungle treehouses. Wearing his hirsute onesie and an impish smirk, Max is crowned king of the unruly creatures. With the voice talents of James Gandolfini, Catherine O’Hara and Paul Dano as the tempestuously neurotic Wild Things, and a kicky score by Coen Brothers favorite Carter Burwell and Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O.
