Filmed In Supermarionation Review


Excellent

Filmmaker Stephen La Riviere goes out of his way to fill this documentary with the cheeky dry humour of the people who changed television and movies with groundbreaking puppet series like Thunderbirds. Maverick producer Gerry Anderson and his crew provide plenty of wry commentary, while an amazing range of clips makes us want to revisit all of the old programmes, including some we'd never heard of.

In the mid-1950s, Anderson and cameraman Arthur Provis formed AP Films to produce the TV series The Adventures of Twizzle (1957) using marionette puppets in increasingly inventive ways. Over the next few years, they developed the Supermarionation process to add even more movement, progressing from a Western series (1960's Four Feather Falls) into sci-fi (Supercar, Fireball XL5 and Stingray). Their next series in 1964 was Thunderbirds, which broke ground as a one-hour children's programme with plotlines more suited to the movies than TV. And even if two Thunderbirds movies flopped at the box office, Anderson continued to refine his puppet-based work with Captain Scarlet and Joe 90 before moving into live action in the late 1960s.

The documentary is framed with scenes of Thunderbirds' Lady Penelope, Parker and Brains discussing the Supermarionation phenomenon, intercut with interviews with voice actors, puppeteers and crew members who recount hilarious anecdotes about their years working in warehouses around Slough. They also talk about specific challenges of making TV shows like this, including how they entertained themselves by working risque innuendo into the shows, knowing it would go right over the kids' heads. Their candour is hugely enjoyable, as they share private jokes and raucous backstage stories, all while reuniting to explore their old working environments in the company of Gerry's son Jamie.

Kiss Toledo Goodbye Review


Weak
An unfortunate film that premiered on cable, it's easy to see why Kiss Toledo Goodbye never made it into the theaters. For starters, it's virtually the same movie as the far funnier Mickey Blue Eyes, with the hapless Kevin (Rapaport) getting inexplicably sucked into the mob lifestyle thanks to the demise of mob boss Sal Fortuna (Forster). While Christopher Walken is always a great addition to any mobster flick, Rapaport frankly looks too much like he belongs in the mafia. Hugh Grant? A much better casting call. Too much of Toledo revolves around gunplay, with one shootout after another trying to stand in for plot development. In a word: Boring.

Catch Me If You Can Review


Excellent

Steven Spielberg's best movie in at least a decade, "Catch Me If You Can" is a capricious, invigorating, infectiously jaunty caper about one of the most extraordinary con men in United States history.

In the mid-1960s, Frank Abagnale Jr. passed himself off as an airline pilot and fooled Pan Am, as a doctor and got a job as a Georgia hospital's graveyard-shift emergency room manager, and as a lawyer, becoming an assistant prosecutor in Louisiana under the wing of his unsuspecting fiancée's father.

And when he was finally caught -- after cashing millions of dollars in bogus checks to boot -- Frank Abagnale Jr. was all of 20 years old.
