Something to Do: Movies

There is no doubt that the winner this week is Minions, and finally we get to see the back story of the real stars of the series. Not that Gru and the girls aren’t amazing in their own right, but the little yellow guys are really at the core of the whole thing. It may [...]

Zootopia Teaser Trailer

This Disney flic looks like a lot of fun! Zootopia is by definition the kind of Utopia where humans never existed, but the anthropomorphic animals who lived there were extremely HumanEsq.

Devils, Angels & Dating

A cute little animation, Devils, Angels & Dating was posted in January of 2012, and has won an assortment of awards at various film festivals. Enjoy!

This particular version is in English, which I can follow a bit easier than the original language (French, [...]
