Bandslam & Ponyo open this weekend

bandslam

I like Bandslam: see my review at Eye on Entertainment August 2009 St. Anthony Messenger. It’s entertaining and a big vote for the arts in the curriculum.

 

Ponyo

Then there’s Ponyo click here and scroll down to CAPSULES. I saw it at the Venice International Film Festival last year; this is a longer review: Ponyo click here and scroll down. The TV ads make Ponyo look like a linear tale; it is not according to the English subtitles we saw at the Venice Film Festival. Now that the film is dubbed, the American editors may have been able to weave a narrative together. It’s a beautifully animated film so if it is thin on story, do we really care?

'The Revenant' intense, gory saga of love and revenge
"No Más Bebés" (no more babies) a must-see in an election year
"Concussion" rethinking football
'The Finest Hours' shows off US Coast Guard's most daring rescue in true form
