Zootopia (Review)

About two months ago, an extended scene for Disney’s latest animated film Zootopia hit theaters as a sort-of trailer. I’m talking about the scene where a bunny police officer and a fox go to the DMV in “Zootopia” (A human-like world inhabited by animals all living together in relative harmony) to run a license plate and discover the entire organization is run by sloths. While, yes, that in and of itself is kind of clever, the way the...

Pete’s Dragon (Teaser Trailer)

Last week we dropped the poster for Disney’s live action remake (reboot?) of the 1977 classic Pete’s Dragon. No sooner had the poster hit the Internets then the trailer flew onto our screens I won’t go into the details of how I know the Pete’s Dragon writer/director David Lowery a little bit, that info and my angle on it is in the post about the poster.

I also love the sprawling, epic, action packed angle the film is taking then they tie it all back in at the...

I have no problem with these live action films, but find it curious there’s so many given that none have really reached huge success. Granted, the sample size is small with Cinderella, Maleficent and...

Here Comes solo Han Solo

Things are about to get zany in the world of the Star Wars franchise and frankly, I’m not sure how I feel about it. Today on StarWars.Com news broke that filmmaking duo Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, two of the hottest directors (one of the hottest directors? Do the two equal one? I’m confused.) have been hired on to direct the Han Solo standalone feature. Hmmm. While undoubtedly it’s silly of me to question: A) The Star Wars...
