Where's Antonio been?

"Antonio Banderas was fab in Evita.Wasn't he supposed to be the film phantom of the opera at one point?Too bad they didn't stick with him." -Cash

特里:乔·约翰斯顿低调导演with a high profile filmography



With the long-gestating胡桃夹子和四境界之now in theaters (its initial shoot wrapped nearly two years ago!) it occurred to us to look at the directorial career of乔约翰斯顿.When the studio opted for a full month of reshoots on胡桃夹子, the original director, Lasse Hallström was unavailable so Johnston stepped in (and now there's a joint "directed by" credit).Johnston is hardly a household name but every time his name pops up we're reminded that a chunk of his filmography is actually fairly famous.

如何他的10戏剧,发行的电影很多,你见过?The posters are after the jump...

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS (1989) - a surprise blockbuster
THE ROCKETEER (1991) - I was really fond of this one when I was younger but that might have been the absolutely crushing crush on Billy Campbell
THE PAGEMASTER (1994) - he directed the live-action portion of this movie.

JUMANJI (1995) - another blockbuster

HILDAGO (2004)
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011) - yet another blockbuster and our personal favorite of the "origin" portion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies

Which brings us up to date.读克里斯·费尔的审查在这里.


Maybe it's only the gaps between films that's kept him under the radar as "name" directors go.He's already an Oscar winner, too.His first movie gig was in the visual effects department on a tiny picture called星球大战(1977) when he was in his mid-20s and he worked on the entire original trilogy.By the age of 31 he was already an Oscar winner (Visual Effects on电影“夺宝奇兵).He graduated to the director's chair with the surprise blockbuster亲爱的,我缩小了儿童(1989) and has been their ever since, albeit with larger and larger gaps inbetween each movie.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was on my mind recently for no apparent reason and I was giddy about the innocence of the era it was made.Of course everything I remember about it back then is how precious it all was since I was 6 the majority of 1989.

I like The Wolfman mainly for the SFX and Blunt..

Jake's first leading role!Alessandro Nivola in really tight tee-shirts!Dominic Cooper touching Chris Evans' abs!There's a lot to love from his filmography, is what I am saying.

He's definitely one of those unheralded directors who makes consistently good, entertaining movies.Maybe not great ones, but fun entertainment.Such a long gap between Captain America and The Nutcracker movie.

I've seen Honey, I shrunk the Kids and Jumanji, both are extremely entertaining, definitely a guilty pleasure I don't feel guilty of at all.;)
I didn't know HISTK was his film debut.Wow!

火箭手 is pretty great -- so much fun.Its style, exuberance, and pacing really made him a great pick to helm the first Captain America.

Missed "Hidalgo" and "Jumanji".Glad someone remembered that there was someone other than John Dykstra who was responsible for the revolutionary effects work on "Star Wars".

勇敢者的游戏 was TERRIFYING to 10-year-old me and I have no desire to ever see it again.

As a child of the 90s Johnston will always have a special place in my nostalgic little heart.他的电影都是一些第一我的曾经爱过,以及作为一般事项,我认为他比Hallstrom的更一致的董事(大约一半,其电影我喜欢和另一半他们,我认为是垃圾),所以我 curious to see the "Nutcracker." Disappointed to hear the review so far, but I suppose there wasn't much hope for such a beleaguered project.

佩吉苏 - 我的意思是我最喜欢的“原产地”的电影。冬天战士完全是我的最爱。
