No Time to Die strives to extract as much poignancy as possible from this concept. It even goes so far as to try to move us — and many people will undoubtedly be moved by it, even if the strings are visible and we can see it coming. Without glowering quite so much, the movie could have accomplished this just as well. But it appears that the objective is to maintain its artistic sobriety — even the traits that made Seydoux such a deserving and interesting international celebrity are subdued here. Fukunaga, who isn’t afraid to flaunt his abilities when the stakes are high, doesn’t hold back here, but he does so sparingly. For example, there’s a lot of action in a foggy forest. IMDB
Danny Elfman invites fans to his live-to-film concert experience of The Nightmare Before Christmas almost every year around this time of year. The event allows attendees to witness the stop-motion animated film, which will be set to live music and will include Danny Elfman reprising his voice role as Jack Skellington in person. This time around, Billie Eilish has joined the cast to portray Sally and probably sing her own interpretation of “Sally’s Song” in Los Angeles, California, according to Elfman.
