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 […]

ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE: STATIC CLING

SPOILER WARNING: This review contains spoilers for the Netflix film Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ve probably already watched this, but you’ve been warned anyway! Also, I know this is only 45 minutes long, but the American Film Institute and […]

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 […]

WARNING: Mild spoilers ahead!  The Toy Story franchise is basically one that’s grown up along with me. I have vague memories of the seeing the original in theaters when I was only 4-years-old and I saw both sequels in theaters. Toy Story 3 came 11 years after the second one and told […]

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES

I’m sure I’m not alone (although still in the minority) in that I’m sick of comic book films. There’s just too many of them each year and with some rare exceptions, they all feel pretty much exactly the same: superhero(es) need to defeat the bad guy(s) and […]

INCREDIBLES 2

Superhero and comic book films sure are such a big drag nowadays aren’t they? Sure, you get the occasional outlier like The Dark Knight or Logan that breaks the mold, but for the most part, they all feel the same. This is exactly how people felt back in 2004 during the start of the […]
