Warner Bros.: Avada Kedavra, Healy
'Wizard People, Dear Readers,' Brad Neely's wonderfully wacked-out homage to 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,' is no more
Screens Story  April 1, 2005, by Spencer Parsons
"...So, Harry Potter has awakened to another tequila sunrise only to find the liquor cabinet locked. A little less than a year since the first public screenings, Warner Bros..."

The underwater superhero brings long-awaited color to DC's films
Film Review  December 21, 2018, by Matthew Monagle
"...Nobody could’ve expected that Aquaman would emerge as the most successful male character in the DC Cinematic Universe, but here we are, with the ocean-dwelling superhero positioned as the last great superhero movie of 2018. Even if the results aren’t there, Aquaman proves that Warner Bros..."

Looney Tunes: Back in Action
Riotous comedy mixes live-action and animation for a great result.
Film Review  November 14, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Brendan Fraser, Jenna Elfman, Steve Martin, Timothy Dalton, Heather Locklear and Joan Cusack. Warner Bros.’ Looney Tunes franchise has been going for 73 years, and from the bug-eyed, black-and-white Bosco to Bugs and Daffy, it’s been a helluva run..."

License to Wed
A couple seeks connubial advice from a celibate with an affinity for Popeye impressions.
Film Review  July 6, 2007, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Starring: Robin Williams, Mandy Moore, John Krasinski, Eric Christian Olsen, Christine Taylor, Josh Flitter, DeRay Davis and Peter Strauss. To remind viewers of its gilded past, Warner Bros..."

Cats Don't Dance
Hooray for Hollywood on Hollywood! The Dream Factory has long loved turning the camera on itself, mythologizing and mocking the way it makes movies, and lucky for us it has....
Film Review  April 4, 1997, by Robert Faires
"...Movie movies are some of filmdom's great delights -- Singin' in the Rain, Sunset Blvd., even Pee-wee's Big Adventure -- exposing all the glamour, romance, and unchained egos behind the glossy illusions through more glossy illusions. Now comes an animated feature from Warner Bros..."

Space Jam
Dexterously mixing live action and animation, Space Jam tosses NBA champ Michael Jordan onto the 2-D court with the entire Looney Tunes gang and the opposing Monstar team of cartoon characters from another planet.
Film Review  November 15, 1996, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Dexterously mixing live action and animation, the movie tosses NBA champ Michael Jordan onto the 2-D court with the entire Looney Tunes gang and the opposing Monstar team of cartoon characters from another planet. Space Jam also represents the debut film from Warner Bros.' new Feature Animation division..."

M. Butterfly
The lost Cronenberg? Well, almost. Warner Bros. apparently had the devil of a time puzzling over how to market this decidedly non-mainstream adaptation of David Henry Hwang's award-winning Broadway play....
Film Review  January 14, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...The lost Cronenberg? Well, almost. Warner Bros..."

Oz the Great and Powerful
Neither a besmirching nor a instant classic, this sometimes clunky prequel in which James Franco plays the Wizard when he was a mere, young huckster also has Sam Raimi's ravishing visuals.
Film Review  March 8, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The answer is not a resounding yes or no. This Disney prequel to MGM and Warner Bros.’ enduring 1939 masterwork charts its own course, and, for the most part, is the better for it..."

Bad Times at the El Royale
Neo-noir hijinks gets away with being style over substance
Film Review  October 12, 2018, by Matthew Monagle
"...If you’re someone who feels that every major release has been watered down to its point of broadest possible appeal, then you might take some solace in Drew Goddard’s Bad Times at the El Royale, a stylish neo-noir that does its best to blend vintage Warner Bros. style with Nineties-era blockbuster exuberance..."

The LEGO Ninjago Movie
The LEGO law of diminishing returns
Film Review  September 22, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...With a target audience that is far too young to appreciate the occasional nods to the Shaw Brothers’ chopsocky classics and a plot that is ultimately a rehash of a rehash of a rehash – albeit dumbed down considerably – this LEGO movie is akin to Jackie Chan’s more recent, less classic, film output. To paraphrase the Chinese scholar/philosopher Confucius (yes, I know he was Chinese and ninjas are a purely Japanese construct, but still): “The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell.” Warner Bros..."

Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?
Audiences shrug back.

Film Review  September 19, 2014, by Louis Black
"...In 1949, when Warner Bros. filmed The Fountainhead, Rand threatened to burn down the studio if they compromised her novel..."

Chandni Chowk to China
In this Bollywood action comedy, a mistaken identity takes a humble cook on a crazy journey from India to China.
Film Review  January 23, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Mithun Chakraborty, Ranvir Shorey and Gordon Liu. Anyone whose familiarity with Bollywood cinema extends no further than the closing dance number in Slumdog Millionaire is almost certain to have one of two possible reactions to this, the first "real" Bollywood film to be co-produced and released in the States by Warner Bros..."

The Ant Bully
Childhood's fascination with all things small and squirmy makes this story of a boy who becomes an ant a pleasant, if undernourished, tale.
Film Review  July 28, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...Call these pint-sized explorers ant bullies if you must, but this interspecies backyard battleground is often also the birthplace of scientific wonder. (And pipsqueak sadism, of course, but the two are frequent if uncomfortable allies in the youthful war on ignorance.) That Warner Bros..."

Good Boy!
A boy is the only human who can understand the mission of his dog from outer space.
Film Review  October 17, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...It’s ingratiating in that nice doggie way, but the dogs, who have had their lips enhanced via CGI to aid in the illusion of speech, don’t have much more on their minds than where the next stick is going to sail in from. Far more interesting was Warner Bros.’ similarly themed Cats and Dogs two years ago, which took the age-old battle between the species into giddy new realms..."

Stuart Little
Retelling of E.B. White's children's classic.
Film Review  December 24, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...Night Shyamalan and Greg Booker, takes liberties -- you knew it would -- but manages to keep several of Stuart's escapades in place. There's a wild, hilarious sailboat fight in the lake of Central Park that survives intact, and the overall tone is empathetic to the novel, but this feels more like a Warner Bros..."

The Big Sleep
Not reviewed at press time. Discovered and restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive, this is the original pre-release version of one of the most beloved American film classics,...
Film Review  June 6, 1997, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Missing from the original version are some of the scenes for which the film is best remembered: the conversation that intertwines horse racing metaphors with sexual innuendoes (“it depends on who's in the saddle” kind of stuff); another double entendre scene between Marlowe and Vivian (Bacall) that occurs in her bedroom when he returns the wayward Carmen home to the Sternwood mansion, and one that occurs in Marlowe's office as they playfully trade off phone quips. In 1945, the Warner Bros..."

Born to Be Wild
A rebellious Generation-X youngster finds meaning in his angst-ridden existence when he befriends a guy in a gorilla suit -- oh sorry -- I mean a female gorilla, and frees...

Film Review  April 7, 1995, by Joey O'Bryan
"...And there you have the story of Born to Be Wild: Ridiculously plotted and overlong even at an hour and 45 minutes, this would-be piece of “family entertainment” spends the first quarter of its running time replaying many of the key plot points of John Badham's Project X, while the middle section collapses into a series of embarrassing montages of the gorilla monkeying (sorry) around, until the whole enterprise ludicrously becomes a programmed tearjerker that will leave even the most easily entertained kiddies twiddling their thumbs in boredom. Surprisingly, the actors actually try to deliver passable performances in spite of the underwhelming material, but their efforts are wasted upon a painfully condescending and unimaginative script that seems to have been written by a committee of Warner Bros..."

The Three Musketeers
Narratively, this new remake of The Three Musketeers is related to those old Mascot serial remakes of the great classics. It has the main characters and a hint of the...
Film Review  November 19, 1993, by Louis Black
"...But, and it's a mighty but, Sheen, Sutherland and Platt as those Three Musketeers of legend -- Aramis, Athos and Porthos -- simply are in a splendidly different movie than the story. Add Tim Curry in a deliriously corrupting turn as Richelieu and Wincott as his evil henchman Rochefort and suddenly we're in a perfect Warner Bros..."

The Thing Called Love
Miranda Presley (Mathis) takes the bus from New York to Nashville to make it as a singing/songwriting star. Trying out and then waitressing at the Bluebird Cafe, she meets rebellious...

Film Review  September 3, 1993, by Louis Black
"...The Last Picture Show is a Fifties Western, all empty streets and tired people, instead of violence, there's sex; Paper Moon is the ideal screwball. In The Thing Called Love, he tells a very Warner Bros..."

Dennis the Menace
This film adaptation is based more on the TV series than on the comic strip.
Film Review  June 25, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...If that prospect makes you shudder, then you have some sense of what I'm driving at when I talk about John Hughes causing us to hate our children. Based more on the TV series than on the comic strip, this Dennis the Menace is Warner Bros.' summer bid for family entertainment..."

Spike & Mike's 1992 Festival of Animation
Featuring 18 different animated shorts from around the world, this 1992 collection highlights the best and the brightest (as well as the tedious and the wholly unoriginal, occasionally) in animation....
Film Review  August 21, 1992, by Marc Savlov
"...Not all of the shorts that Spike and Mike have collected this year are as promising as the ones above: as in all animated collections, the whole is wildly uneven with a few masterpieces, a couple of bombs, and more than enough also-rans to go around. American Lance Kramer checks in with “Singing Ding-A-Lings,” an apparent homage to the talking animal 'toons of Warner Bros..."

"...After taking home the Slamdance Audience Award in 1997, Davis, who almost ruefully admits to financing his film via the credit card route ("I'm really not supposed to talk about that," he says), found his film on the fast track to distribution via Legacy Releasing and Warner Bros.

"..."My record" is Welch's new Life Down Here on Earth, his third album, and the first since leaving the corporate giant Warner Bros. label Reprise. Despite his newfound label independence, this new disc doesn't really offer any changes from previous works - meaning it's his usual great collection of well-written songs, surrounded by extremely skilled sidemen..."

DVDanger: Building The Iron Giant
Tim McCanlies talks behind-the-scenes of the animated classic
DAILY Screens  September 7, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...Now the film is a beloved institution, its underlying message of overcoming fear and prejudices (summed up in the Giant's pivotal proclamation that "I am not a gun") installing it in the animated canon. Yet at the time, it was a troubled production, its budget slashed after Warner Bros..."

So far, the list of names and labels seems to hint towards a crop that's not only more diverse than last year's alternative-heavy offerings (Fastball, Spoon, Prescott Curlywolf, etc.), but also somewhat more traditionally rock-oriented -- ranging all the way from Sister 7 (Arista Austin) to Sixteen Deluxe (Warner Bros.)...."
