The Illusionist

Nice trick


Drama

Rod Lott
If I could play God, when the Best Animated Feature envelope is torn open at next month’s Oscars, the winner wouldn’t be the presumed lock of “Toy Story 3,” but the dark horse, “The Illusionist.”

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1

And stumbles.


Action

Rod Lott
In 1986, writer and artist Frank Miller changed the comic-book industry forever with the four-issue series that became the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. Its sour disposition and gritty attitude was arguably the darkest depiction of Batman the world had seen, paving the way for the caped crusader’s move to big-screen blockbuster three years later.

Clip art

Some of today’s most innovative and creative music videos come from the Norman directorial duo known as Lamar+Nik.


Music

Joshua Boydston
It’s not uncommon for music video directors to work with budgets ranging from thousands to millions. Norman-based production duo Lamar+Nik made its calling card with $80 worth of glue guns and paint pens and a truckload of cardboard.

Monsters University

The college-set Disney/Pixar prequel graduates without honors.


Youth

Phil Bacharach
If Monsters University is any indication of what children think college is like, maybe it’s no wonder that increasing numbers of young people are forgoing higher education. The follow-up to Disney/Pixar 2001’s Monsters, Inc. imagines university life as a suffocating place ruled by mean-spirited cliques and droning professors.
