SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

They all say that bad publicity is still good publicity, and that couldn’t have been more true in the case of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. When the first trailer arrived and that horrid design was revealed, for once in a blue moon, the internet rightfully acted with disdain and revulsion. […]

DOLITTLE

It’s not news that remakes and reboots are all the rage in Hollywood. Did you know that the Eddie Murphy version of Dr. Dolittle is a actually a reboot of a 60’s film based off the original books? Probably not. Even if you enjoyed Murphy’s version, were you clamoring for a new […]

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX – THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Trilogies are a tough nut to crack. You’re telling a single story over three installments, but each installment also has to stand on its own as its own movie. Sometimes trilogies are completely planned from the beginning, such as The Lord of the Rings, but most of them […]

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a massive surprise for both the moviegoing public and Columbia Pictures. As it should, a sequel to Jumanji was met with skepticism when it was announced, and it reeked of desperation from Sony to repurpose any IP they own to make a quick buck. […]

PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE

I don’t know what Playmobil is. When I first heard of this movie, I thought they were those Fisher Price toys, which turned out to be Little People. Turns out, Playmobil is a German toy line that probably only the loneliest of kids with the cruelest of […]

FROZEN II

I’m a 28-year-old man who unashamedly loves Frozen. For the first time in forever (sorry), an animated Disney film actually felt fresh and interesting. Were the classic story elements and obligatory songs still there? Of course, but there was this air of snarkiness to how Frozen treated the classic Disney formula. It struck that perfect balance of taking […]

ABOMINABLE

While there are plenty of quality animated films out there, I’ve grown out of a lot of their tendencies. It usually takes something with a strong script and unique animation to catch my interest, but what I really want is an animated film that respects its target […]

THE LION KING

A lot of people like to write off animated films as simple, mindless films made for children. Unlike a lot of other genres and technological advancements in film, animation occupies a special spot in it all. It’s the only thing that really gives you endless possibilities to […]

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL

I’ve always looked at Men in Black as a sort of Ghostbusters, except with aliens. It’s not really about the plot, but about the characters and how they interact with each other, as well as the crazy world around them. Since they only focused on two characters, Men in Black always fell […]

ALADDIN (2019)

Remakes have been around since the dawn of film. Yes, they’re far more prevalent now than before, but seriously, the classic 1959 version of Ben Hur is a remake. What I’m saying is, remakes aren’t inherently bad. What matters is their original intent, which often isn’t noble. The biggest reason why […]
