Vincent by Tim Burton

Vincent by Tim Burton

Tim Burton made this short stop motion film while he was working for Disney in the animation department during the early 80s. Vincent Price narrates the film whom is one my many life long heroes. If you look closely you might catch a glimpse of Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas years before production was considered for the Nightmare before Christmas. Tim Burton, Edgar Allan Poe and Vincent Price.

Film Review: No Distance Left to Run

Film Review:No Distance Left to Run


A music documentary by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace that captures the 2009 reunion and tour from the British Quintet. A comprehensive documentary that captures a celebration of music and friendship. The directors did they're homework on this one for sure starting the film out with the beginning to the close end of Blur to the several side projects that they have taken. It's filled with commentary from the band and live behind the scene footage unearthed to the screen. I found the film to be refreshing and very enjoyable with it's colorful images. It's a time line of one of the quintessential bands of the 90s. Starting off with Damon and Graham meeting each other in grade school then reconnecting at Goldsmith University to form Blur with Alex James and Dave Roundtree. If you were curious about the 90s British music movement then this would be a must have for the library also for any Blur fan out there. This is going in my film collection.

4 out of 4 stars.
