From writer/director Domee Shi (Bao 2018); starring Sandra Oh and Rosalie Chiang, Turning Red is Disney Pixar’s latest animation/adventure/comedy. The story of a thirteen year-old girl. Specifically what happens whenever she…
Isn’t this a pleasant surprise of a trailer? The super cuteness; the sound of Sandra Oh’s distinctive voice, then even more cuteness and a thoroughly intriguing premise.
Bring on the colour-rich fun that’s coming our way! I’m ready!
Disney Pixar’s Italian Riviera-set animated adventure, Luca has a new and very promising full trailer.
Starring Jacob Tremblay, Marco Barricelli, Maya Rudolph, Jim Gaffigan, and directed by Enrico Casarosa, it’s nearly time to learn about the beautiful friendship between a human being and a sea monster disguised as human.
The colours, location, the story, the can sporting a moustache and most definitely the music have me looking forward to this movie so much.
Come June i8th, we’ll all get to be in beautiful Italia, the place where words sound like music.
Marco Barricelli, Saverio Raimondo, Emma Berman, Giacomo Gianniotti. and Marco Barricelli and Jack Dylan Grazer also star
In the 1996 Space Jammovie, the Looney Tunes sought out the aid of retired basketball champion, Michael Jordan, in a desperate attempt to win a basketball match and earn their freedom.
More than 25 years later, NBA megastar LeBron James, Sonequa Martin-Green and Don Cheadle are the stars of the long awaited sequel Space Jam – A New Legacy. And in case you hadn’t already guessed, another very important basketball match must be played, and won.
I already love the music in this trailer. The visuals are great too. Even though, outside of the above synopsis I remember next to nothing of the first Space Jam movie, I’m hopeful because this trailer is promising. And I loved LeBron’s performance the first time I saw him act in 2015’s Trainwreck.
One another thing, Bugs Bunny has always been my absolute favourite Looney Tune.
Kath Soucie, Martin Klebba, Cedric Joe, J. Michael Tatum, Eric Bauza, Xosha Roquemore, Khris Davis, Jeff Bergman, Bob Bergen, Katie McCabe and Chiney Ogwumike also star.
The pre-teen version of me desperately wanted the recent Tom and Jerry movie starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña and Colin Jost to be good. I was looking forward to being transported back to some of the happiest TV viewing moments of my childhood. Instead, what happened with director Tim Story’s film is that I quickly became bored.
My biggest issue with Tom and Jerry is that I didn’t find the writing engaging enough to keep me watching beyond the thirty-minute mark. My disappointment was further compounded by the lack of newness where Tom and Jerry’s antics are concerned. There’s also the fact that my sense of humour has undoubtedly evolved. Still, I don’t regret aborting my viewing session before the end.
As for the animation style, I may have appreciated it more had the background not been real-world New York City. This combination of the updated animation style with the real-world backdrop proved to be too much difference all at once for me. An overload that’s made worse because the story execution is lacking.
The best thing about my brief experience with Tom and Jerry is Jerry’s cuteness. I’ll remember that for a while, as try not to think too hard about how different the film could have been had the humans not featured so very prominently, when, for me at least, they were never the main attraction.
Missing Link, the story of Mr Link (a Big-Foot-like character) and his adventures with explorer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman), plus adventurer Adelina Fortnight is an animated movie I found to be fun in parts and watchable.
The reason I’m not more enthused by writer/director Chris Butler’s film is that story-wise, it felt oddly superficial and more basic than I expected.
What I did enjoy are the interactions between Lionel and Link, plus the moments of heart, most of which happen in the more engaging last quarter. Emma Thompson’s character is another welcome highlight, and it proved quite satisfying to see Lionel’s growth/evolution as the story continued.
I watched Missing Link because the cast which also includes Zoe Saldana and Zack Galifianakis intrigued me. Yet, overall, I wish I could include Butler’s film on my list of favourite animated movies I’ve seen in recent years, but I cannot. Nevertheless, I say give Missing Link a chance if you’re particularly curious. It may just be what you need when you’re after an easy-viewing animated film experience.
