In the latest Mousterpiece Cinema Podcast, Josh Spiegel lacks closure, I rant about talking birds & lizards and Gabe Bucsko measures us both for matching straight-jackets. 

It's the Rescuers Down Under!

My most recent column on SoundOnSight, this time about the Walt Disney Corporation, Escape From Tomorrow and the 8 year legal battle caused by a comix book called Air Pirates Funnies.

TL;DR I did not like this movie. Watch Local Hero instead.

With rumours swirling about El Generico being signed by the WWE and his match this Sunday against 'The Kentucky Gentleman' Chuck Taylor for BATTLEWAR at Foufounes Électriques being his last match in Montreal as an independent wrestler, I thought that I would tell The Secret Origin of the Generic Luchador.

It’s time to ring in a happy new year at Mousterpiece Cinema HQ! To kick off 2013, Josh and Mike travel to a whole new world: Monstropolis, where monsters work hard at scaring the bejeezus out of children. Yes, let’s all travel to Monsters, Inc., the 2001 film from Pixar Animation Studios that was re-released in 3D into theaters over the 2012 holiday season. Did Mike and Josh like the 3D upconversion? Are they excited for the upcoming prequel, Monsters University? And hey, what about the movie itself? All of these questions are answered, plus a debate about the quality of The Flintstones, of all things, on the first new Mousterpiece Cinema of 2013!

Stumped for a Christmas gift and low on funds? Here is how you can gift the gift of short films this holiday season and support the YoungCuts Film Festival! 

http://www.youngcuts.com/static/give_the_gift_of_short_films

For as little as $14.95, you can give 5 people (friends, family, cast or crew) access to watch and vote for more than 400 short films on the YoungCuts web-site!

Happy Holidays!

I signed this petition because I believe that the Russian law being proposed denies children opportunities to be adopted by loving families and murders hope.

Hi 

Thanks for the invite. 

I'm the Festival Director for the YoungCuts Film Festival (Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers) www.Youngcuts.com - we program films under 30 minutes by filmmakers under 30. Every year, we watch over 1,000 short films from over 30 countries to pick our Top 100 International short films.

You can watch films on our site. There are some free films (http://www.youngcuts.com/2013_repechage) and subscribers have access to over 400 short films.

Unlike many film festivals, we aren't a black box - we offer feedback when appropriate and we give free access to our submissions to distributors, producers and programmers who view us as experts on emerging filmmakers. So submitting to us can have a ripple effect, leading to other opportunities for you and/or your short film. 

I also write for SoundOnSight.org http://www.soundonsight.org/author/michael-ryan/ and I co-host the Mousterpiece Cinema podcast with +Josh Spiegel and Gabriel Bucsko - a weekly discussion of films released by Disney.
