To coincide with the new game release, Sony has released a movie to bring Ratchet and Clank to a larger audience. A risky move no doubt, but if successful, the gamble would create more interest in the franchise. So, does the movie capture the wonderful charm and humor of the game? Unfortunately, no. [Read more…]
Following on the very successful heels of Frozen and Big Hero 6, both of which dealt with important societal issues in an entertaining way, I’m hoping that Zootopia succeeds and succeeds well. [Read more…]
Taken on it’s own, Fall of Reach is an interesting story, that like I said has a lot of the movie Soldier in it, along with inspiration from other great sci-fi works. There are nods to Starship Troopers (the book), War of the Worlds, and others. Seeing what the characters had to go through as they made their way through training kept me interested as did Halsey’s own internal conflict about what she was doing to these children. [Read more…]
Like most Pixar films, The Good Dinosaur is filled with emotional moments of life and death scenarios. I believe this is why so many Pixar movie’s connect with people. They’re filled with reality based elements that touch the hearts of everyone. The Good Dinosaur is successful in embracing this formula and for better or worse deserves to rub elbows with other Pixar movies. [Read more…]

If Archer and Miami Vice had a baby, gave that baby nothing but hard drugs, had that baby live in a world designed by Patrick Nagel (who designed the iconic Duran Duran “Rio” album cover), and hired South Park to be the baby’s sitter, that baby would be named Moonbeam City. [Read more…]
After suffering through Pixels, the thought of watching another Sandler production brought a certain nausea that comes with his films. While the first Hotel Transylvania was watchable, Hotel Transylvania 2 is a boring, laugh-free experience. [Read more…]
Discovery Family has acquired the US rights to the 26-episode series, Dream Defenders, from Tiny Island Productions. The series follows 14-year-old twins Zoey and Zane Mercer through their dual dimension adventures—in both the ‘Realworld’ of Meridian, and the fantastical universes of the ‘Dreamworld’. [Read more…]
“Star Wars Rebels” returns to Disney XD for Season 2, with a special one-hour premiere, with the Rebels returning to Lothal to save a defecting Imperial officer, only to draw the attention of the Empire’s most dreaded agent – Darth Vader in “The Siege of Lothal”. [Read more…]
The movie is very entertaining, but it’s far more entertaining for adults than children. Riley is eleven, and I wouldn’t recommend this movie for kids under eight, due to a variety of fairly heavy and depressing things that happen. Yes, there’s a happy ending, but things get slow and sad more than once. [Read more…]
