AFI Fest 2016: Moana (Movie Review)

Moana is the 56th film from Walt Disney Animation Studios and continues on in a tradition that shows how the studio has built a firm reputation. Of course, more recent entries have really had to up their game in how the princess and princess-type characters are treated. It certainly shows in Moana, a mostly excellent adventure […]

Four weeks to go until we see the first of the three planned Star Wars “spinoff” films, Rogue One.  This film about the band of Rebels and spies that steal the plans to the Death Star, kicking into motion the original film, is the kind of spinoff I’m more eager to see from these than […]

‘Zootopia’ Presents Profound Discourse In A Fun Family Film (Movie Review)

Here’s a simple claim right off the bat – Zootopia is a true triumph for Disney. The animation studio has had something of a resurgence in recent years with films such as Frozen and Big Hero 6, but Zootopia feels like an actual classic. That is high praise for the Mouse House, but the balance […]

‘Big Hero 6’ Begins (Movie Review)

Remember Bolt?  Disney’s computer animated feature about a dog that believed it had superpowers, given that he was the star of a TV series.  I enjoyed that film for what it was, as it had a warm spirit and lots of humor.  That in mind, it always felt like Disney taking a film like Toy […]

Disney animation made a sweeping return to form and comeback in 2013 with Frozen.  The film is now the winner of 2 Academy Awards, including Best Animated Feature (the other for Best Original Song for “Let It Go”).  Not only did the film receive high praise and reviews from critics, but it was a sensation […]

For its 18th DC Universe Animated Original movie, they have adapted Justice League: Origins.  This feels kind of like a timely “plant the seeds for later” type release as we all know their ultimate goal is to make a live action Justice League movie.  Justice League: War is the name and bringing it to life […]

‘Frozen’ Is Solid Work From Disney (Movie Review)

I will get this out of the way:  I really liked the fact that Frozen was an animated Disney film that did not rely on the death of a parent as a major plot point and that it did not end with a big wedding.  Not all Disney films have this, but Frozen stuck out […]

42 (Blu-ray Review)

It’s surprising it took so long to get a film based on Jackie Robinson joining “white baseball” produced.  For many years, auteur Spike Lee had attempted but not been able to get one off the ground.  2013 finally gave us a Jackie Robinson film.  42 boasted the highest grossing opening weekend and the 2nd highest […]

‘42’ Is An Old-Fashioned Story Of An American Legend (Movie Review)

I don’t acknowledge this very often, but I like to bookend my reviews with quotes from the film.  Sometimes they sum up the film in a sense and other times they are just quotes I enjoyed the most.  The two I have chosen for 42, a film that chronicles the introduction of Jackie Robinson into […]
