Silly Rabbit, Animated Movies Aren’t (Just) for Kids

  Zootopia is Disney’s 55th animated feature film, and it broke records as being the highest grossing Disney animated opening of all time. Why is that? Personally, I think it’s because Disney has been delivering better and better films after their decade of mediocrity (1995-2004). The animation powerhouse, with the help from Pixar geniuses, has worked hardContinue reading “Silly Rabbit, Animated Movies Aren’t (Just) for Kids”

Could “The Force Awakens” be the GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME??

Let’s all be perfectly clear – The Force Awakens is NOT just for Star Wars fans. It’s not just for geeks or sci-fi buffs. The Force Awakens is a genuine love letter to anyone who loves the movies and has a soul.

Which Came First, the Ant or the Bug?

You remember back toward the end of the century it seemed all the movie companies were copying each other? It was Dante’s Peak vs. Volcano, Armageddon vs. Deep Impact,and perhaps the biggest showdown of all was DreamWorks’ Antz vs. Disney/Pixar’s A Bug’s Life. I don’t know the story behind what went on with the volcano and the astroid movies (although I can say that Armageddon isContinue reading “Which Came First, the Ant or the Bug?”
