It is easy to see the main issue with Million Dollar Arm, as it is all over the poster. I like Jon Hamm, I look forward to seeing what he does, once Mad Men ends and he can really delve into some much better film roles, which he is more than able to handle, but […]

Disney’s ‘Bears’ Be Bumpin’ (Movie Review)

I never really know how much to say about these Disneynature films.  They are not insufficient enough to call them mild distractions, as the footage is generally great, the voiceovers are fun, and there is enough work done to build a narrative that I can get behind what they have to offer.  It generally amounts […]

‘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 […]
