    Take a look at the photo below. See that boat tied up at a marina in Orleans, MA ? (And I'm not talking about the fishing charter to the right. But - rather - the modest vessel to the left). Photo by Jim Hill Doesn't look like all that much, does it? When you take a closer look at the thing, it seems like there's barely enough room for the four brave Coast Guardsmen who manned this particular motor lifeboat back in February of 1952.

    It's Jim Hill in the Restaurant with the Book - The Jungle Book - and You Can Join Him June 5th

    • 0 Comments
    It’s a Jungle (Book) Out There For more than 50 years, The Walt Disney Company has been reimagining the writings of Rudyard Kipling–taking his tales of Mowgli the man-cub and his animal friends and then turning them into hugely popular films and television series. Let Jim Hill take you from Bill Peet’s far-too-dark take on this tale (which Walt Disney just hated) to Jon Favreau’s photo-realistic box office smash (for which the Studio is already developing a sequel).

    How "Jungle Book" director Jon Favreau coaxed such a great performance out of acting novice Neel Sethi

    • 0 Comments
    So who exactly is Neel Sethi , the 12 year-old cinematic newcomer who's the only live-on-screen human performer in Disney's "The Jungle Book" ? Which -- after spending its second weekend at the top of the domestic box office -- has now gone on to sell over $500 million worth of tickets worldwide. More importantly, why -- out of the hundreds of child actors who auditioned for the role of Mowgli in Jon Favreau 's live-action reimagining of Disney's 1967 animated classic -...

    Universal Creative tweaked the magical formula it used to create Hollywood's Wizarding World of Harry Potter

    Given that there are already Wizarding Worlds in Orlando & Osaka, why should Harry Potter fans now travel to Hollywood to experience the third theme park incarnation of that magical realm which J.K. Rowling dreamed up? Because -- as Professor Flitwick (who teaches the Charms class at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) might say -- the third time's the charm.

    Once upon a time, Harley Jessup worked on "Twice Upon a Time." And while this John Korty film would eventually go on to achieve cult status, when George Lucas' first attempt at creating a full length animated feature went into limited release back in August of 1983 and then quickly faded from view, this then-29 year-old character designer decided that he was swearing off animation.
