There were showers of sparks, explosions and a human candlestick - with jets of flame for hands. Some of the audience at Hull New Theatre might have thought they were in the midst of a firework display, such were the pyrotechnics which flashed across the stage. But Disney's Beauty and the Beast proved far more than a series of effects, with a production that manages to find real emotion in its cartoon origins. Based on the 1991 animated film, this stage adaptation proved a funny,...

By TONI RUBERTO It's a children's story set in a town whose macabre residents have skeletal faces, razor-sharp teeth and limbs sewn together. But don't be scared -- the kids who watch "Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas" aren't. There's a certain charm to the many likable (and some not very nice) inhabitants of Halloween Town, a land created by Burton's ripe, if eccentric, imagination. Today, 15 years after the initial release of "The Nightmare Before Christmas," you can still go...

By Jeff Vice Deseret News According to an old adage, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. However, "sincerity" doesn't explain why other studios have tried to "flatter" the Walt Disney Co. so many times by imitating the look and style of the studio's most successful animated features. And simply copying the Mouse House's formula isn't as easy as it may sound. It takes memorable stories, first-class animation and top- notch voice talent. You have to make sure that your film...

* DEATH RACE: H 1/2 Marquee Cinemas, Park Place Stadium Cinemas. This remake of Roger Cormans 1975 B-movie re-imagines this cars-and- carnage thriller as a video game come to life. The plot is non- existent, the dialogue is dopey, the dead stretches between races are dull, and the resolution is laughable. But no matter, as the movies really about the creative ways these nuts find to kill each other. Rated R. n THE HOUSE BUNNY: HH 1/2 MC, PPSC. Essentially a female remake of Revenge of the...

By Matt Wolf Since when did lesser-known Shakespeare become a regular revelation? Let's just say at the very least over the several years that the director Lucy Bailey has been working at Shakespeare's Globe. Two summers ago, Bailey made her debut at the Bankside venue with a production of "Titus Andronicus" that saw spectators keeling over, mortified by the murderous fury of the Bard's bleakest, blackest text. Now, Bailey has returned to the Globe in comparably incisive form, this time...
