"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...The lost Cronenberg? Well, almost. Warner Bros..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...In 1949, when Warner Bros. filmed The Fountainhead, Rand threatened to burn down the studio if they compromised her novel..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...Con men, mountain men, mistresses, and mining add up to high adventure in 19th-century Alaska. This Warner Bros..."
"...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..."
"...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 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..."
"...Maybe I'm old-fashioned. Maybe I've been exposed to the rich, colorful art of Disney animation and Warner Bros..."
"...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..."
"...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..."

"...Actually, today, January 16, is the day the band stops punching their time cards at Wheatsville, because starting next week, when Sparks fly, another "W" will be signing the band's paychecks.

"...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. Home Video, the latter of which was brought on board by Hollywood writer/ producer/mack-of-all-trades Jeff Dowd..."
"..."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..."
"...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..."
"...They don't need that money to survive. Also, they did have a run on Giant Records, a Warner Bros..."

"...By 1995, Ingram's string of sold-out shows and brisk indie album sales made him a natural major-label contender, although he admits that his manager, Ken Levitan, landed a Warner Bros. contract based more on Levitan's reputation than Ingram's..."

"...You'd hardly know skill or work (or anything more than goofing off) entered into the theft from the coverage by publications from The Guardian to Salon to the American-Statesman or The New York Times. And I confess that my own brief write-up about it in a profile of this year's New York Underground Film Festival for Filmmaker magazine wrapped up in a lame joke about Warner Bros..."
"...Appropriately enough, the Class of 1998's story begins exactly where it did last year, with David Garza and Sixteen Deluxe. Both local acts spent the majority of 1996 embroiled in bidding wars, with Garza eventually settling on Atlantic and Sixteen Deluxe on Warner Bros..."
"...Just who are the bands that will define Austin nationally in 1997, and what are the hopes and expectations of their labels? 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.)...."

"...Warner Bros., $26.99 Frank Capra's It Happened One Night (1934), Gregory La Cava's My Man Godfrey (1936), and Leo McCarey's The Awful Truth (1937) are routinely, and rightly, celebrated as the collective genesis of screwball comedy. Why Howard Hawks' Twentieth Century (1934) is rarely mentioned in the same giggle is unfathomable..."
