The short answer is obviously no, religion has no way of ruining a film, some films are even enriched by religion. However, religion has been a factor of some real stinkers in recent years. Whether it's the Christian films that force others to follow the same faith, or films based on the tales of certain religions, they seem more abundant then ever, but do they have to be so bad? So many just stop trying to be anything but, pandering crap to their people that it often feels like all religious films are doom to suck. Well I'm here to argue that religion can be good for films.
Everyone's praised The Iron Giant, but is it really all that good? Yes of course it is, that shouldn't be a question. I don't think I've ever met a single person who disliked this film, which is surprising, but in many ways speaks volumes of the film and it's impact. So why does this movie work? Well there's heart, quality animation, and above all else, a unique vision in animation that wasn't common for animated features back then, it really stands out.

Disney animation has produced a lot of gems, as well as some stinkers, it happens. I personally have, to a certain degree, a fondness for all their films, even the bad ones have something worthwhile. So today, I decided to bring you a list of movies I'd love to see Disney Animation tackle, keep in mind this is my list, so please, if there's a choice you dislike feel free to discuss why, but don't insult me over it.
Once more I find myself praising a Disney made film this year, shocker. It's not that I'm paid by Disney (trust me, I'd do so much if I were), or I'm some kind of "Disney can do no wrong" kind of guy, I mean have you seen Chicken Little? This year has just been phenomenal in the critical side of things for Disney, with the exception of two films, Moana is definitely not joining that small group.

Home invasion thrillers are pretty stale for the most part right? There are clever ones, but so many just follow the same tropes, it's repetitive, creates the same plot-holes again and again, it's stale. So I decided to watch Hush, which has been praised, I assumed for changing the formula, but as I came to find out, it does not.

I honestly feel disappointed that I'm barely learning of this show.
One of my all time favorite shows is The Twilight Zone, it's odd, unique, perhaps a bit outdated, but smarter than a majority of tv ever has been. I bring this up because, my latest review, is that of Black Mirror, specifically the first episode The National Anthem, which feels like a modern take on The Twilight Zone, and from what I'm told that's not coincidental, this takes inspiration from that.

Before we start, I just want to say I'm deeply saddened by the news right now, I won't say which, just look at the date of this review, you should be able to figure out what I'm saddened by.Fuck.

I know what you're thinking, yes, despite having some lame ideas for Pokemon, the franchise is at a better place than it's ever been. Yes even if one of the little monsters is based on trash, I still think Pokemon is better now, than it was when I started playing Red Version all those years ago. Keep in mind I'm only talking about the games, which better represents the franchise, not the mediocre cartoon, sorry if that offends you.

Okay, obviously I don't mean that, there are plenty of cartoons I like that are popular, but every time I bring up the ones I dislike,it feels like someone is getting a heart attack. So for today, here's a list of five cartoons I dislike that are popular.

Seth Rogen has a reputation for making vulgar comedy films, funny or not (I think they are for the most part) we know they are hits among the masses. Today, in honor of his upcoming release (Sausage Party) I present to you a brief look through some of his filmography, specifically the ones he had a lot of involvement in and the ones I feel define his career the most. Before we start, yes there will be some minor spoilers throughout, maybe even major ones for the films we'll run through, keep that in mind.

I don't make it a secret, I love the MCU, it's also no secret that I hate both Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman (ESPECIALLY that one), so am I just a Marvel fanboy? Do I hate everything DC?

Yes I'm strictly talking about the franchise created by Dan Aykroyd, not the old show with the gorilla, please don't correct me, just hear me out before you attack me.

So let's be real here for a bit, Sony's marketing team REALLY dropped the ball on this one, personally I didn't hate the trailers, but I understand why some others did. I say some, largely because I know most people who hated these trailers online were, in all honesty, losers who were just pissed that women got to star in the film. If you hate this movie after watching it, fine I understand, different opinions and all, but if you hated this before watching, went out of your way to rage endlessly at the actresses, demanding male leads, or whatever else relating to that MRA crap, yeah you suck. Anyway, let's review the new Ghostbusters, the faster I praise this, the quicker Disney, I mean, Sony, I mean Fox, I mean... No one is paying me.
Tuesday, July 12, 2016
I want to see the new Ghostbusters movie and I hope it's good; why is that so controversial to say nowadays? I know the trailers have been less then perfect, but given the directors track record and the talent, yeah this may be a great fun time, so forgive me for not caring what the online geeks think about this.

As the first year to feature an Academy Award for animated films, I'd wager 2002 was the year animation gained real traction in the United States, Shrek won the award proving Disney wasn't the only studio worth looking at, while Ice Age proved to be a hit among people, then the sequels came. While Shrek bowed for the last time six years ago, Ice Age keeps pumping out sequels and the result is a continually devolving mess, what went wrong? Well I have some answers to that.

As most of you know, this week saw the release of Independence Day:Resurgence, a sequel to the 20 year old movie that to some is an action/sci-fi mess, while to others it's a dumb, occasionally fun, product of its time, I'm somewhat in the middle, yeah parts are fun but the movie as a whole sucks. I bring up Independence Day because I originally wanted to do something relating to it for this week, but instead I decided to highlight a sort of forgotten film that also honors the classic B-movies of the 50's, Mars Attacks!.

I hate Batman v. Superman, that much I've stated many times before, so it shouldn't be a surprise that I'm not looking forward to Justice League. DC just can't seem to do much right at this point, well largely in movies, but you know what could've saved them? You know what could've made me more interested in the Justice League? one character, STARRO.

We are told in life to follow our leaders, but what if our leaders are leading us to something bad? That is something I get out of Pixar movies. Disney has often featured obvious villains, even if they're characters in some form of power, they tend to be/look untrustworthy right from the start; for example, Jafar may be in a high position right from the start, but he also is presented as a villain right from the start, by contrast Auto from WALL-E, may be an obvious villain, but he isn't presented as such at first, in fact the only tip is his look being reminiscent of HAL-9000; that to me is the key difference between Pixar and Disney Animation villains, regardless of their appearance, Pixar villains are in most cases not presented as villains right away, this is the Pixar villain formula.

This week we see the release of Warcraft, the latest videogame adaptation to hit movie screens, early word says it's not good, which sucks, but it did get me thinking, you know what fantasy videogame deserves a movie franchise? The Legend of Zelda.
