Wall-E. Toy Story. Up. The Incredibles. What do these movies have in common? They are among the best movies released by the animation studio, Pixar (although the list goes on and on). For years, Pixar has taken the Animated Film genre to new levels, by creating movies that cater to both children and adults.
Before I start, I just want to give the team behind Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland major props for the vagueness of the film’s trailers. Going into this movie, I had more or less no idea what it was about. This is something that has become more and more rare in the movie industry these days, so it was… Continue reading Tomorrowland: A Cool Journey.. to Disappointment
I remember the year Little Miss Sunshine came out (2006). I was much younger then, and couldn’t possibly have appreciated any of the subtleties of the film.

Let’s face it, television in the 21st century has been a strange land of hits and misses. I’m not sure how all of you have felt about the shows being released, but I for one have found that in this land of hits and misses, hits have been vastly outnumbered, and even those hits are… Continue reading Mr. Robot: The Drama We Didn’t Know We Needed
Neill Blomkamp is a director whose work has always intrigued me. Since his debut feature-length film, District 9, he has been a director who has been very much on my radar. For me, District 9 was an expertly crafted blend of [albeit a bit heavy-handed] social commentary and interesting action. This was a formula that worked to the South… Continue reading Chappie: Blomkamp Gives Us A Solid, Fun Movie
