Variety also gives the film a terrific review (but doesn't mention the music).

READ!!! As the action moves from Europe to Morocco and back again, the pace is well maintained and the story never seems to overstay its welcome, which is not the case with many recent blockbusters. John Williams’ score, which mixes moody 60s-style music with the composer’s more grandiose themes, accompanies events up through the rather ingenious finale (involving a massive duel where shipping cranes are transformed into sabers), before a cliffhanger sets up the next installment (to be directed by Jackson).

I like this quote frome Jamie Bell:

[on why he continued pursuing ballet despite the mockery] - "The other boys called me 'poof', 'ballerina boy', "Get on your tutu, Jamie." It gave me more determination to prove it wasn't just for girls. It was for boys as well."

Um, that's from the Hollywood Reporter's review. SchiffyM said that Variety's review doesn't mention the music. Which it doesn't.

I truly believe this is going to be Spielberg's first 1 billion dollar plus film. I don't think American Audiences will warm to it...but the international crowd will.

Could this be where Steven Spielberg wins Best Picture for War Horse...and Best Animated Picture for The Adventures of Tintin? Who knows....

I really think the Academy will pay more attention to War Horse.

Animated films which predominantly use motion capture to generate their characters are no longer eligible for the Best Animated Film category.

I have replaced the review text with a link to the review on the HR site.

Guys, please don't cut and paste copyrighted articles onto the board in their entirety -- quoting is fine but not the whole thing.

Thanks

Lukas

Why not? It's not like they haven't had exposure to the bizarrely-coiffed one before:
