The Star Wars Story that nobody asked for, but was is a story worth telling? In short, NO.
Take us back to December 2015. Star Wars bursts back on then big screen after a ten year hiatus and The Force Awakened for us at least, in IMAX 3D. Or so were were told. After paying a premium ticket price for "The IMAX Experience", disappointment was to ensue. Not with the movie itself, which … Continue reading WAS THE 3D WORTH WAIT? STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS COLLECTOR’S EDITION.
1950 DIRECTORS: Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson & Hamilton Luske May contain spoilers! This classic animation, as with many of the golden age Disney pictures, have become more iconic than critically acclaimed. The animation style is good, though not at the heights of Disney's greatest works, with many short cuts used throughout and story is so simple that it manages to … Continue reading CINDERELLA (1950)
1979 DIRECTOR: Gary Nelson May contain spoilers! I want to say that the effects where good for the time. I want to say the acting was acceptable. I want to say that the screenplay was more than a mediocre sci-fi script and that Anthony Perkins was not horribly miscast in this post Star Wars Disney movie. … Continue reading THE BLACK HOLE
2015 DIRECTORS: Pete Docter & Ronaldo Del Carmen May contain spoilers! Pixar are back on form! It is about time after a raft of lesser sequels to their greater works but as with Pete Docter's last film, Up (3D) (2009), Inside Out is much more than meets the eye. This is a sophisticated psychological comedy/drama focusing … Continue reading INSIDE OUT (3D)
2013 DIRECTORS: Chris Buck & Jennifer Lee May Contain Spoilers! What can I say. I like it. And not just because I'm the father of a little girl, and step-father to more, but because it is a genuine classic. This is, to me, the Up (2009) that Disney Animation have been waiting for since animation … Continue reading FROZEN (3D)
2012 There's not really much that you can say about and eight minute short, to what is basically a sequel of sorts, to the original Tangled (2011) except that in this case, it was way better than the original! Fun, sharp and witty Chameleon and basically ignoring the two stars in favour of the horse and … Continue reading TANGLED EVER AFTER (3D)
Well, it's that time of year again, but this time, May 4th, is a Bank Holiday here in the U.K. So, in a decent move from Sky Movies, the entire day is dedicated to showing the movies in both chronological and production order, by starting their run at 6am with Star Wars: Episode I: The … Continue reading MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU…
1999 DIRECTORS: John Lasseter, Ash Brannon & Lee Unkrich May Contain Spoilers! The weakest of the trilogy in my opinion, this is considered by many to be the best. But there's little in it when all's said and done. But the weakest Toy Story is still leagues above the competition. Toy Story 2 not only advances the story of the toy's well, it also … Continue reading TOY STORY 2
2003 DIRECTORS: Andrew Stanton & Lee Unkrich May Contain Spoilers! Finding Nemo has never had the same impact on me as it has on others. Kids seem to love it and many consider this to be Pixar at its very best and I can see why, but to me, it falls far below Toy Story (1995), Up … Continue reading FINDING NEMO
