Frozen II

I saw Frozen II over the weekend and it was pretty good. Is it better than the first film, yes and it better than Wreck-It Ralph Breaks the Internet. Hell, this is one of the better Disney sequels I ever seen since Return to Neverland. The story was good, It was damn good, visuals are great, animation looks pretty amazing, and songs, they were not that great. This film feels like it was taken some bits and peaces from various anime series like some from Yu-Gi-oh! and Avatar: Last Air Bender. Elsa is the air bender and she goes in the memories of Arendelle just like Yami goes back the memories from his past from the season 5. In this……

Dope (2015) It’s hard out here for a geek.

It’s the mid 2010s in The Bottoms, a rough neighborhood in Inglewood, California. This story is about three of the best friends to ever come from the area. Malcolm (Shameik Moore), Diggy (Keirsey Clemons), and and Jib (Tony Revolori) are the nerdiest kids in the senior class. They are nothing like their peers, but they excel in getting things done through perseverance, connections, and technology in ways nobody would have even considered. They have a love for the 1990s, and all of the wish they were spending their teen years growing up 20 years ago. This reflects in Malcolm’s considerations for colleges, but his counselor, Mr. Bailey (Bruce Beatty) feels writing essays about the messages sent by hip hop artists……

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) The land you know. The story you don’t.

Take a Guild Wars 2 Engineer with the conman talents of a Mesmer, align him with a water Elementalist, and bring him to battle again two power-hungry Elementalists, one fire and one air, add some steampunk-based psychedelia, since in the time period of the early 1900s, all the supposedly bad narcotics were commonly used in various over the counter products and totally legal, and you have Oz the Great and Powerful. This movie takes a new approach to the story of a land that can only be found by route of tornado from our world, and tells us how the great Wizard of Oz became such a legend in Americana pop culture. Just like the original movie, the prologue starts……

The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot

It was the 1990s and animated movies were outstanding, no matter whether hand-drawn or computer animated. The tales come from the studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers were amazing, and our millennial kids could not get enough of them. The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot is one of those movies. A new take on the Arthurian legend, this focuses on Kayley(Jessalyn Gilsig), the daughter of Sir Lionel (Gabriel Byrne) and Lady Juliana (Jane Seymour). Kayley is enamored with all the ideals of what a true Knight of the Round Table stands for, and wants to be a knight just like her father. At this time, the kingdom is very prosperous and at peace, but too peaceful for one knight……

Zootopia : Welcome to the urban jungle.

As if it is possible for Disney movies to get any better, they keep do! Zootopia is one of those kinds of movies that you can keep watching over and over again and never get tired of, which is pretty much the standard with many Disney movies. This story takes place in a very modern city, but it is the “tail” of Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a cute little bunny from Bunnyburrow, one child of over two hundred children of Bonnie (Bonnie Hunt) and Stu (Don Lake) Hopps, that want to be a police officer in the city of Zootopia. The country folk of Bunnyburrow think she will fail, and should be a carrot farmer like her parents, but she……
