Martin Scorsese’s ‘Taxi Driver’ Turns 40

Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver, the pressure cooker of a film about one man’s lonely journey into a nether region of metaphoric and literal hell by way of a society that doesn’t even want to begin to understand him, celebrated its 40th anniversary over the weekend, opening in New York City on Feb 7th, 1976 and opening in a wide release on February 8th.

The film, an early masterpiece by director Martin Scorsese, who was coming off twin successes with Mean Streets and Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore respectively, is a stark, brutal, dark, and pulsing look into the open wound that was New York City circa 1975. During that turbulent and gritty time, the city was almost limping on legs from a bygone era that started to erode and disintegrate by the time the film was made. On cracked concrete streets, with asphalt that seemed to emit snakelike steam from its sewers could only a film like this be born. Taxi Driver stands as a true testament to the blood, sweat, and tears put forth by the creative triumvirate of Scorsese, writer Paul Schrader, and the lead actor who played one Travis Bickle, Robert De Niro, was already a legend even then when the cameras started rolling as production commenced.

The Little Prince trailer header

Paramount Pictures has released the newest trailer for Mark Osborne‘s adaptation of The Little Prince. Based on the 1943 novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this is the book’s first feature animated adaptation. It actually had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year in an out-of-competition screening, and was eventually released a few months in France in the summer. So this is North America’s first real look at the film.

For those who are not familiar with The Little Prince, the book centers on a young girl, whose meticulous mother wants her to grow up too fast. However, their eccentric neighbor, helps the young girl take hold of her childhood by telling her the story of a boy called the “Little Prince”, whom he supposedly encountered in a desert when his plane crashed. While some may consider The Aviator a distraction, The Little Girl finds her neighbor’s story intriguing, and soon she will go on a life-changing adventure involving stars, biplanes, and a cute fox.

Check out the new trailer for The Little Prince below.

Finding Dory Header

Andrew Stanton’s career in live-action filmmaking may be on hold for right now, but there is no question that he knows his way around directing an animated film. It was announced last year that he along with Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks are returning for a Finding Nemo sequel. Now Disney has announced that the sequel is officially titled Finding Dory, and Pixar has scheduled the film to be released on November 25, 2015.

It’s a big ocean, so we’ll be seeing brand new characters enter the fold, and the film will take place a year after the events of Finding Nemo, where our fish friends from both the ocean and the fish tank find themselves swimming along the California coastline.

Finding Nemo 3D Image

After lots of negotiating, Disney•Pixar has reached a deal with Albert Brooks to reprise his role as Marlin the clown fish in Finding Nemo 2.

We found out that a sequel was on the way with Andrew Stanton returning to direct back in July, and that Ellen DeGeneres had signed on to reprise her role as Dory just month later. Brooks, however, was apparently a little bit trickier to lock up, and it’s said that he’ll be paid rather handsomely for the gig.

Finding Nemo 3D Poster

Somewhere beyond the sea, Finding Nemo returns to theatres in 3D! The breathtakingly gorgeous animated feature first provided audiences with a glimpse into the environments and lives of the ocean’s inhabitants just about ten years ago. Only Pixar could develop such an enchanting atmosphere with a heart-tugging story that grasps the audience’s full attention as much as the visual “eye candy.” For a number of reasons, this is quite possibly the most immersive and entertaining 3D film I have experienced.

To be considered in this extraordinary league requires several components, and Nemo delivers in all of these ways. For one, you need a compelling plot. Who can argue with gripping storytelling that ties us to the universal theme of parents allowing their children to let go? In this case, little clownfish Nemo’s surprising capture by a diver startles us. Here, caring father Marlin (voiced by the perfectly-cast Albert Brooks) finally brings Nemo (Alexander Gould) to his first day of school, and in a matter of minutes and an act of defiance, Nemo wanders beyond the reef. Caught. Gone. We feel for Marlin, lost without his little boy, and also for his son, now stuck in a dentist’s office aquarium. Now it’s up to each of the fish to face their fears, overcome their doubts, and attempt to reunite. Compelling, check.
