PLANET ORSON

December 5, 2009

Me and Orson Welles (yes, the Zac Efron movie) is being lauded for Christian Mackay’s breakout performance as Orson Welles. Nigel Andrews’ review also includes a vote for the powers of live actors over digitized versions.

Snuck out to see Planet 51 (Gayle voted for that over Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs). Cute, nice retro feel, although I think there should have been a diner. Seems like it’s not the 50’s without a diner. The two main characters, voiced by Dwayne Johnson and Justin Long had a nice rapport. Pretty solid story, not much unnecessary humor thrown in just for extra sauce and a little too long spent on the anti-government/police/British scientists beats. Enjoyable…I was amazed at how much expression you get out of noses (aliens did not move their antennas enough to substitute) and how much I like it when things go “VROOOM” in an animated fashion.

Caught the new Nick teen show Big Time Rush last week. Liked the guys in the band and the talent scout, some good physical humor, didn’t like the grafted on hints of non teen stories for the sake of giving pre teens some connection. Gayle really hated the producer. So we’re leaving it at has potential.
