Minions (2015)

You just have to smile when you see The Minions. They’re cute, happy, jolly little fellas with a babbling speech pattern, a drive born of basic instinct, and a talent for being loyal to a fault. They’re like happy-go-lucky little boys who are mischievous but not malicious despite their lot in life. As supporting characters […]

Inside Out (2015)

It is such a joy to report that Pixar is back in form. After a few years of weak soup, it’s so nice to see them back on the track that made us fall in love with their confections in the first place. In the animation game, Pixar was always been the better factory, churning […]

Penguins of Madagascar (2014)

It takes a heart of stone to hate a movie as sweet and good-hearted as Penguins of Madagascar although, lord knows, many critics have tried. Their ire is not completely unreasonable, however, the world wasn’t exactly crying out for a feature-length movie featuring the adventures of those cute penguins that provided comic relief around the […]

Big Hero 6 (2014)

Big Hero 6, the latest animated adventure from Disney, illustrates one of the greatest assets and also one of the greatest set-backs of the studio’s recent animated product. It is created with perfect, loving details, but falters when it gets to the main story. Disney has historically been good at both, but recently the greatness […]

The Book of Life (2014)

The Book of Life is a joyful, giddy experience, brimming with energy and life, which is odd to say since much of it takes place in the land of the dead. But don’t let that description dissuade you, just because it is about the dead does not mean it’s a dreary experience. It’s more about […]

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

When it’s all over, after you’ve wallowed in the den of scum and villainy wrapped up in the spiky heart of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, you may come away with a sense of hollow indifference. That’s really surprising and achingly disappointing if you have fond memories of the original Sin City from […]

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a big movie – even epic. Where most animated movies these days are mousy and small, this one has a giant canvas with a visual sweep that reminds you of The Lion King and Finding Nemo. It’s a fun movie to behold. The animation makes the sky into […]
