Amination can take on many forms and formats.  They can also tell varying types of stories, from Disney's "happily ever after" tales to darker fare like we saw in this year's Oscar winner, Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.  Then you get animated movies that are more mature in nature such as Anomalisa and the raunchy, R-rated com...

The human race, for the most part, seems to be enamored with the idea of death.  We fixate on what comes next.  Is there an afterlife?  What happens to our soul when our body is gone? Is there such a thing as reincarnation?  Hispanic cultures even honor their dead on El Dia de los  Muertos.  For the filmmaker, Shawn Sn... Read More

Carol Danvers first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1968  as a United States Air Force pilot (rather forward thinking of them, don't you think?).  In 1977 she became Ms.Marvel when an explosion causes her DNA to fuse with Kree Warrior Mar-Vell, giving her superhuman powers. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years,... Read More

These days we've all been trained not to pick up any suspicious packages we see in public places, especially in New York City, especially on a Subway. What train rider doesn't know that? The stupidity of picking up such an object forms the basis of this film; it also forms the basis of the total stupidity of watching this disappointing and mundane ... Read More

Almost nine years ago Dreamworks Animations introduced us to Hiccup (Jay Baruchel; Goon), the hapless son of the Chief of Berk, who wanted nothing more than to please his father but lacked the conviction to be a dragon hunter.  One day in the forest he met Toothless, an injured Night Fury dragon, considered to be the last of its kind.  Th...

From the time they are little, girls are taught to wait for their "prince charming" to come.  As they get older these fairytales take on a different slant in the form of the ever popular "romantic comedy" genre movie.  However, Natalie (Rebel Wilson; Pitch Perfect) was always told by her mother that those fantasies wer...

When James Cameron (Avatar; Titanic) read Yukito Kishiro's Manga, Gunnm, twenty years ago he knew he wanted to make it into a major motion picture with himself directing.  However, his other projects derailed his desire and, after having penned the screenplay, Cameron handed over the work to protégé, Robert Rodriguez (Sin Cit...

In June 1914, a young Bosnian named Gavrilo Princip, tired of the Austro- Hungarian rule in Bosnia, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie in Sarajevo.  This act led to the July Crisis and by August 1914 France, Britain, and Russia were at war with Austria-Hungry, Germany, and Italy.  This conflict became known as Worl...

Once upon a time...That's the way all fairytales, old and new, usually begins, so I thought I'd start my review by honoring this modern take on one of them in the same way. "The Kid Who Would Be King" is quite simply a wonderfully bright new take on the Arthurian legend. Part "Goonies" style action adventure, part allegory, and ... Read More
