Frozen II; Fun but Faint

I was originally going to write about Frozen II in a triple feature review alongside Knives Out and A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood. Then I saw it again. I originally watched Frozen II in theaters on November 22nd and thought it was great. I had a fantastic time watching, I cried when Elsa sung “Show Yourself,” and I had only a few small nitpicks … Continue reading Frozen II; Fun but Faint

Spirited Away and Gotham By Gaslight; A Double Feature Review

Would it surprise you to know I haven’t seen most of Miyazaki’s films, or even Studio Ghibli films in general? Well before October 27th, 2019 at exactly 12:55 pm the only film I had seen from the Studio Ghibli film I saw was “Whisper of the Heart,” in which I ended absolutely LOVING. Something about Studio Ghibli films just pulls you into them with a … Continue reading Spirited Away and Gotham By Gaslight; A Double Feature Review

Jexi, Abominable, and Jigsaw; A Triple Feature Review

After a few weeks of watching movies I love I decided I need to watch something new. So I went out and watched two movies in theaters, Jexi and Abominable, then went home and finally watched Jigsaw because I had it sitting on my shelf for god knows how long and it was about time I got around to watching it. Let’s start with the … Continue reading Jexi, Abominable, and Jigsaw; A Triple Feature Review

Steven Universe The Movie; Absolutely Amazing

Steven Universe was aired on Cartoon Network on May 21, 2013. A unique cartoon created by Rebecca Sugar about a boy named Steven Universe going on amazing adventures with his three gem guardians Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet. The show gained popularity quickly with the internet with its loveable characters, relatable writing, and beautiful songs. The show in my opinion is flawed in many ways, from … Continue reading Steven Universe The Movie; Absolutely Amazing

Meaning in Meaningless Movies; Cars 2 (2011)

As a kid I loved everything Disney and Pixar. I also really loved Cars 2. It was my favorite Pixar movie before I came to my senses, and I came to appreciate film as a form of art. The movie still holds a place in my heart, but I can now realize how much my stupid kid brain held that movie on a pedestal. Now … Continue reading Meaning in Meaningless Movies; Cars 2 (2011)

Why Monster’s University Is A Great Film

Monster’s University, a 2013 prequel to the acclaimed 2001 Pixar film “Monster’s Inc.” and is considered a bad film to critics and fans of Pixar alike.

1. Paper Man/ The Blue Umbrella

These two short films are just DVD bonuses to two other films on this list. “Wreck It Ralph” and “Monster’s University.” The best way I can put into context of why they’re on top is, even though the films they were added onto were good enough to stick with me emotionally, both “Paper Man” and “The Blue Umbrella” we’re able to stick with me more. … Continue reading 1. Paper Man/ The Blue Umbrella

3. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

This film is something that I didn’t expect to like. But looking back, Chris Miller and Phil Lord knew what they we’re doing and goddamn does it show. This movie made me more excited to imagine. This movie taught me to not be so indulgent in my hubris. Instead of a character’s invention failing it succeeds. Flint Lockwood, a quirky but relatable scientist doesn’t spend … Continue reading 3. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

4. Spider-Man Into The Spiderverse

This is the second film on this list by Phil Lord and Chris Miller and holy crap is it amazing. The animation and art style are like nothing else. Its like you’re just watching a moving comic book. Its not just the animation that makes this movie great though. The writing is amazing, thought provoking, funny, and at some points tear jerking. Everyone did their … Continue reading 4.
