The Polar Express is a children's book written by Chris Van Allsburg and published by Houghton Mifflin in 1985. The book is now widely considered to be a classic Christmas story for young children. The book is set partially in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the author's hometown, and was inspired in part by Van Allsburg's memories of visiting the Herpolsheimer's and Wurzburg's department stores as a child. It was adapted as an Oscar-nominated motion-capture film in 2004 starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis. Van Allsburg served as an executive producer on the film. Van Allsburg won the annual Caldecott Medal for illustration of an American children's picture book in 1986, his second after Jumanji.

Do you know what they do to soft, bald, overweight Republicans in prison, Ernest? They don't let them listen to Cinema Very Gay, that's what. Grab your shovels and your shotguns, the time has finally come for us to cover one of our favorite gay camp classics, Robert Zemeckis' Death Becomes Her, starring the indelible Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Isabella Rossellini, and Bruce Willis. Madeline Ashton (Streep) and Helen Sharp (Hawn) are bitter social rivals with their eyes on the heart of Dr. Ernest Menville (Willis), but also on their fading looks. A modern witch (Rossellini) offers a magical remedy to help, but is the cure worse than the disease? This movie has solidified its status as a cornerstone of queer cult camp and for excellent reason- it's endlessly quotable, hilariously over-acted, and pits two Oscar winners against each other in a battle of bitchiness. It might be easy to write this movie off as a feminist's nightmare, but that surface-level read might miss some of the nuance that makes this movie so fun to revisit. The morgue? She'll be furious! Our journey through queer-coded Disney villain history continues as well with the gentle and greedy Prince John from Disney's Robin Hood (1973). Voiced hilariously by the esteemed dramatic actor Peter Ustinov, Prince John is a whiny brat of a Prince, a total mama's boy, and casually abusive to his sidekick Sir Hiss. Even though the movie doesn't have the staying power that other animated classics can boast, this languishing lion certainly makes a solid entry in this mini-series.

On the latest episode of Time on Screen, Zach Kazan and Kat Shoulders are diving deep into a wormhole on a journey to the heart of the universe. Contact, Robert Zemeckis's 1997 follow up to Forrest Gump, is on tap this week. It's a personal favorite among several Worn & Wound team members, and has an inherently time centered plot device (and some surprising connections to watch enthusiasm in general) that are worth discussing. Mostly, though, Contact is a lasting tribute to the ideas of the late Carl Sagan, who is the focus of much of the conversation in this episode. The film follows astronomer Eleanor Arroway, played by Jodie Foster, as she – and the rest of the world – grapple with the discovery of a lifetime: a radio signal from a distant star system, an unmistakable sign of intelligent life. These hypothetical situations were a fascination for Sagan through much of his life, and the film approaches it from a grounded and scientifically realistic perspective, uncommon for a summer blockbuster from a big studio.To stay on top of all new episodes, you can subscribe to The Worn & Wound Podcast — now available on all major platforms including iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Soundcloud, Spotify, and more.

Com produção de Jim Henson, criador dos Muppets, "Convenção das Bruxas" conta a história de um menino e sua avó que, durante uma viagem de férias, hospedam-se em um hotel luxuoso. Mas lá, eles descobrem que o local é a sede de um suposto congresso de prevenção à violência contra crianças, criado para disfarçar um encontro de bruxas maléficas. Com direção de Nicolas Roeg ("Inverno de Sangue em Veneza") e roteiro de Allan Scott ("O Gambito da Rainha"), o filme é um clássico que marcou a infância de muita gente, graças à história que mistura comédia e terror, além dos incríveis efeitos especiais de maquiagem.

The ThawedCast: Conversations About Animation

Alex, Philip and Bridget put out an APB on 'Monster House' from 2003, directed by Gil Kenan, about a villainous house that eats people (and dogs)! This edgy horror-comedy for kids is the perfect balance of kid-friendly intrigue and clever, tongue-in-cheek dialogue from the animation house behind 'The Polar Express.' Having made the tonal shift from Christmas to Halloween, Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers adopted a more cartoonish style for their characters in a rare departure for the performance-capture specialists. This arguably gives 'Monster House' a more ageless quality a la classic Tim Burton or Henry Selick stop motion. Can DJ, Chowder, and Jenny defeat the ultimate haunted house before it devours more victims? They key (literally) lies in one of the best fake-out deaths (in a movie that also has one of the best anatomical jokes) ever put to film.

Thanks to listener Miriam for contributing!Yes, this book was banned...for promoting witchcraft, not Dahl's anti-semitism, which we have to discuss . It's such a shame because the book - with its willingness to put children in danger and its "grim dark" ending - is still great (bonus points for Quentin Blake's illustrations).

In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that hit much bigger than expected - each of which changed a lot in post-production.Horror hit Paranormal Activity actually first debuted on screen in 2007. But it'd be two years before it got a full wide release in cinemas, and by then the ending would have undergone changes (and a planned remake abandoned).20th Century Fox was having doubts about 1985's Cocoon, meanwhile, to the point where Robert Zemeckis was fired as its director (making Back To The Future instead!). In came Ron Howard though, and changes would get underway...Stories of both are told in this episode.Find Simon on Twitter at @simonbrew, and the podcast can be found at @filmstoriespod.Support this podcast: www.patreon.com/simonbrew.

The new Disney Plus movie Pinocchio is a mostly live-action remake of the 1940 Disney animated classic about a wooden boy who longs to become real, but must first undergo a series of trials and temptations in order to do so. You may already know the story, but director and co-writer Robert Zemeckis has corralled stars like Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Keegan-Michael Key to give it new life.
