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……

Singin’ in the Rain (1952) What a Glorious Feeling!

Can you believe it has been sixty-seven years since this movie came out? It is is truly a classic in every way, including being on the top ten list of AFI’s best films of all time. For those of you who don’t remember being able to see this great movie from time to time on PBS or on your mother’s or grandmother’s old VHS player, you are in for a treat. A colourful, musical, literally jazzed up treat! This movie is set during the Jazz Age, and in a time when big, big changes were going on in Hollywood. That’s right, it’s 1927, and technology is about to throw a great big monkey wrench into the Silent Film industry. This……

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Can you believe it has been six years since Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly) was accused of “going Turbo” at Litwak’s Family Fun Center? Well, now Ralph and Vanellope Von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) are the best of buds, and when they are not at working in their arcade games, they spend every minute together, drinking root beer at Tappers, and just goofing off in other games like TRON. Ralph loves his life, and the security of doing the same thing every day with Vanellope. Vanellope feels very different. One day, as they are goofing off in the surge protector, they watch as what might be a new game get plugged in. The new plugin is not a game, but a……

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……

Trolls (2016) Find your happy place

Dreamworks keeps coming up more and more great family movies, and although Trolls is not quite as immersive as Sing, it has its own charm and lots of colourful 1970s nostalgia mixed in. Anyone growing up in the era will understand many of the references the Trolls and their enemies, The Bergens come across along the way. These trolls are not the kind one fights in Middle Earth, nor are they the kind that get loose in the basement at Hogwarts. These are very different. These are tiny, happy creatures based on toys created by the Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam in 1959. Now they are their own nation, and sadly, that tiny tribe lives in a park in the center……
