Puss in Boots Back this Christmas
One of the best things that DreamWorks did was to create the spinoff movie Puss in Boots, an origin story of the main character. Is used a character that we all loved but in a new storyline. That movie came out in 2011. Now in 2022, that little orange tabby is back for The Last Wish. Will the studio be able to recreate the same magic after all these years? Maybe. Read More >>>
Marcel the Shell Goes Big Time
You may recall a little character named Marcel who first appeared in a short film, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On which premiered at AFI Fest 2010. It won for Best Animated Short. It later became the official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and it won the Grand Jury and Audience Award at the New York International Children’s Film Festival. This was really big news for such a little guy. Read More >>>
Watch Baz Luhrmann’s Take on Elvis
According to Warner Bros., this movie delves into the complex dynamic between Elvis (played by Austin Butler) and Parker (Tom Hanks) spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge). Read More >>>
Top Gun: Maverick
Now, many years later, we finally get that sequel that Hollywood has been talking about for so long and boy what a difference a few decades make. Audiences who were impressed with the flight scenes with the original will be blown away with the sequel thanks to IMAX and the fact that there are no green screens or CGI. It’s beautiful and thrilling. It really gives you a sense that you are riding along with Pete and the gang. Especially the G-force pressures. Read More >>>
While some will call Lightyear a sequel to the Toy Story movies, it really isn’t but it IS related to them. The movie begins with a short message stating that in 1995, Andy, the boy featured in the films, was a huge fan of a movie that featured the Buzz Lightyear character, so much so, that he wanted a Buzz Lightyear action figure more than anything else for his birthday. The movie Lightyear is apparently that movie and now we get to see it just as Andy did. Read More >>>
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
This is a crazy movie. You know how the last 30 minutes of just about every Marvel movie is utter chaos? This whole 2-hour movie is like that all the way through. Despite the mayhem, it seems to have plenty of time to share way too much exposition along the journey. It is also a very odd, violent and even a demonic movie thanks in part to the direction of Sam Raimi. Read More >>>
Turning Red is one that breaks a lot of rules. Unlike films like Tangled, Onward, Frozen or even Toy Story, this story doesn’t take place in a mythical world. It is centered on the very real city of Toronto, Canada. The animation style is much more “cartoony” and inspired by manga. The main character’s parents are both alive and living in the same home. It also features a mythical boy band and it is the first to mention tampons or pads! Read More >>>
Jurassic World Dominion
Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World Dominion is a fun romp traveling all over the world with many callbacks from the original film. There are lots of dinosaurs filling the scenes and lots of action, but what is lacking is any real tension. The first Jurassic Park was full of long, lingering scenes filled with dread not knowing when the dinosaurs would attack. Here, they are constantly attacking and while it is exciting, it isn’t necessarily scary. Read More >>>
Death on the Nile
While a longer wait than we were expecting, the second Hercule Poirot movie was worth the wait. Death on the Nile is most likely considered a sequel to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express, since it once again stars Kenneth Branagh (who also serves as the film’s director) and one character from the previous film. However, this is whole new adventure with a whole new fantastic cast. Read More >>>
