Lincoln’s Movie Night: ParaNorman

ParaNorman Directed by Chris Butler, Sam Fell Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck Rated PG for scary action and images, thematic elements, some rude humor and language Taking a kid to the movies can be a masochistic exercise.

Trisha’s Short Video of the Day: Simon’s Cat in “Hop It”

I don’t know about you, but with both Sarah Jane and an Academy Award-nominated director dying in the same week plus perhaps one of the most depressing Catholic and Christian holidays being today, perhaps you might need a little pick-up.

Short Film of the Day: “Ark”

Dark Roast Blend (via Gizmodo) introduced me to Ark, an animated short by Polish animator Grzegorz Jonkaztys, a Golden Palm finalist at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. It’s gorgeous and moody; definitely a must-see for any animation buffs out there. On a vaguely related note, the 2009 Academy Award-nominated Short Films programs are in theaters […]
