Something to Do: Movies

There are several good choices this time, starting with Suicide Squad, which I have more hope for now that they retooled it somewhat to add more humor. DC saw the box office Deadpool pulled and figured they would give it a shot, I am hoping this makes it a bit more fun than their entirely [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

Tesla Noir, French Animated Steampunk, and turning people into animals against their will; this is an interesting week for disc releases. April and the Extraordinary World is French animated Steampunk at its finest, and I can’t wait to see it. The Lobster is already coming out on disc, even though it is still in its [...]

Something to Do: Movies

We have 5 movies to choose from this time around, 2 of which will be playing everywhere, the last 3 will be more limited. Nerve is not only first out of the gate with a release on Wednesday the 27th, but it also has a Pokemon Go tie in, I guess because the edge-of-your-seat story [...]

Something to Do: Movies

There are several good choices this week, with the first being Star Trek Beyond. Have no doubt, I will be in the audience for that one, probably paying the extra for the 3D IMAX variant. For those needing a serious influx of silly, Ice Age: Collision Course also includes a spaceship, although it may bounce [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

There are a number of good choices this week, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC’s first group superhero outing. For a more mundane conflict, the Thai/Hong Kong film Kill Zone 2 is about an undercover cop and the crime boss he is trying to bring down. If you are looking for something [...]

GANTZ:O New Trailer

Toho is releasing GANTZ:O on October 14th, at least in Japan. It is a 3D modeled CGI presentation, as opposed to the original 2d hand drawn (at least the key frames) animation, and the more recent live action version only used 3D CGI for the special effects and aliens. This one is also a feature [...]

Sing Trailer

Sing is an animated reality show from the folks who did Minions, Despicable Me, and The Secret Like Of Pets. It has an all star cast, including Scarlett Johansson as a punk-rock porcupine, and features somewhere around 85 songs. It will be on the big screen December 21st, and I will definitely be in the [...]

Pixar in a Box

Pixar in a Box is a free online animation training curriculum developed as a joint venture by Pixar and the Khan Academy. The classes include effects, character modeling, rigging, sets and staging, and rendering, as well as a number of important topics that may not have occurred to you are part of the process. I [...]

Something to Do: Movies

Ghostbusters is the obvious movie choice this weekend, but not the only one. Phantom Boy is a French animated feature film noir presentation in which a boy with superpowers trapped in a wheelchair helps a policeman (also trapped in a wheelchair) attempt to bring down a mob boss. This is from the folks who made [...]

Kubo And The Two Strings

Just a reminder that Kubo And The Two Strings will be on the big screen in August. It is an epic action/adventure fantasy story set in an alternate timeline in Japan, where Kubo and his magic Shamisen have to save himself and his village.
