"You live in a dream. You’re a sleepwalker, blind. How do you know what the world is like? Do you know the world is a foul sty? Do you know if you ripped the fronts off houses, you’d find swine ? The world’s a hell.
What does it matter what happens in it?”

Stop-motion animation is alive and well. Henry Selick, director of 'Nightmare Before Christmas,' 'James & The Giant Peach,' and most recently 'Coraline,' has signed on with Pixar/Disney. He worked with Disney before but after the financial failure of 'James' the Disney Co. called stop-motion a dead art and stopped all future projects. With the success of 'Coraline' & 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' it looks like they've changed their tune, only now Selick will be under the wing of Pixar and will be back in company with John Lassester and Brad Bird. There were plenty of rumors floating around when it came out the Selick had not signed a contract with Laika, who put out 'Coraline,' but I don't think anyone could have imagined him moving in with Pixar. With the freedoms he is now going to be given it will be very exciting to see what Selick can cook up.

Solondz has revisited the characters from 'Happiness' with his new film 'Life During Wartime.' It is technically a sequel but also a re-visioning as he cast entirely different actors in the roles this time around. For instance Kenneth Williams, who played Omar on 'The Wire,' takes over for Philip Seymour Hoffman as Allen.

Although At The Movies has officially been canceled it seems as though Roger Ebert still has faith in movie review programming. He has announced plans to produce a new show along with his wife Chaz which will not only feature new Hollywood blockbusters but New Cinema as well which Ebert describes as "indie films, foreign films, documentaries, restored classics, the new Herzog, the new Bahrani, the new Almodovar."
