I can't think of another actor who acquired stardom so quickly, who held it for such a short time, and then kept it for such a long time. James Dean became a star in one calendar year, and then he left us. But he's still being talked about, he's still being revered, he's still being iconized forty y
NBC anchor Brian Williams is a standup comic in disguise. Leonard Malti
Timing in life is everything. Leonard Ma
Polar Express is not an attempt to do animation. It is a technology-based film. Leonard Ma
Shailene Woodley is reason enough to see 'The Fault in Our Stars.'
I'm a lifelong Disney nut. Leonard Ma
I think people in Hollywood are afraid of sentiment because they think audiences will reject it.
I'm a lifelong Disney nut.
Joe Berlinger's documentary 'Whitey' is so hard-hitting and compelling, you can't take your eyes off the screen.
He's a great choice. He's both smart and funny. He can be serious when the case demands. He can be silly. Knowing when to push those buttons is the key to being a good host.
A Christmas Carol is such a fool-proof story you can't louse it up. Leonard Malti
Beauty and the Beast became the first animated feature ever nominated for best picture.
He apparently had a Svengali-like approach or control over her and set out to mold and shape her every performance and appearance on screen, ... Those instances are rare, I think.
Dumbo... makes me cry. Every single time and in the exact same spot. I just have a special affection for Dumbo.
Not so much a film as a visual essay, exquisitely directed and photographed (by Sacha Vierny)... Difficult to watch but well worthwhile for those willing to be challenged.
[He followed Mr. Allen to California in the late 1950's, appearing in such films as] Sex Kittens Go to College, ... shockingly unfunny.
You accept the characters Davis plays because you're not thinking about her [as a star],
Most other world-shattering events have not been depicted so soon.
She was one of these character actresses who could fill any number of roles. She played a lot of 'earth mother' types, especially in later years.
Quality survives. Leonard Ma

A good story is a good story, and I think kids relate well to good stories about identifiable characters. I have parents and grandparents stop me all the time to tell me kids watch these Disney Treasures all the time ï¿½ I can tell you from the feedback I'm getting, they are still great children's a
She could be dogmatic, of course and Lord help you if you disagreed -- that was the tone of many of her reviews. But she spoke with great authority and great love. She loved movies and that was crystal clear every time you read her.
With massive doses of eye-popping special effects I applaud the visual achievements in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.'
Shakespeare wrote great plays that we're still watching all these years later. Charlie Chaplin made great comedies and they are still as funny today as they ever were.
Hitchcock's murder set-pieces are so potent, they can galvanize (and frighten) even a viewer who's seen them before!
She does the same reliable job you'd expect her to do. ... She has a track record that is long and solid enough that it can withstand the usual ups and downs of a starring career.
