Zootopia – Furnomenal

12370858_1022009524529272_3848413103110276642_oOh God I can’t believe I used that as a headline, but in any case  Zootopia is finally out and, after hyping myself up about it from trailers, the furry fan art all over tumblr, and the interesting plot, I was pretty excited to see this film. To be honest the only thing that irked me going into this film was that it was called Zootropolis in the UK and while it’s not a bad name it just doesn’t sound as good as Zootopia. Still, with that minor irritant, I went in quite positive for Disney’s latest endevour.   Continue reading “Zootopia – Furnomenal”

No-English Moviember – Persepolis

Persepolis_filmHello again and welcome to the second annual No-English Moviember! I know I am excited to be writing some of my favourite reviews
again and I hope you are all at least slightly open to the possibility of maybe reading these. You know, if the weather’s bad, the TV has nothing good on its thousands of channels, you somehow lost your phone and the internet only connects you to this review.

Inside Out – Jazzed Up Numskulls

Inside_Out_(2015_film)_posterComing into this film with all the hype that had been around it, I was simultaneously excited and sceptical. Although I liked Brave and Monsters University, and the less that is said about Cars 2 the better, I realised they were not as great as their previous efforts. With everything that had been said about Inside Out, it needed to blow my socks off. I had even heard it compared to Up and even Pixar’s most highly regarded film Toy Story.

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya – An Outstanding Dying Art

The-Tale-of-the-Princess-Kaguya-600x450With Miyazaki’s final film, The Wind Rises, having been reviewed here last year, I have been waiting; as I assume all fans of Studio Ghibli have been doing, for what could be possibly Isao Takahata’s final foray into filmmaking, and perhaps ever so slight more frightening, the second to last Studio Ghibli film that may ever be released.

Reviews I Forgot to Do: Treasure Planet

imagesWhen did I start writing this?: 21st June 2014, pretty much as soon as I had finished my Titan A.E. review.

What was I writing it for?: I’d intended Treasure Planet to be a follow-up piece to the wasted film that was Titan A.E. I wanted to show how a film, similarly premised on space exploration, although with different goals, could be not only good, but so good that it warrants multiple viewings and pestering friends to watch it.

Big Hero 6 – Colourful Costumed Crusaders

Big_Hero_6_film_posterJanuary, as I understand it, is meant to be a month of desperation. A month where films that cause breath to thin and skin to shudder to claw their way out of the ground, grab our ankles and drag us down to their abyss of bile and gunge. So can anyone explain why Big Hero 6 is being released in the UK in January?

No-English Moviember – Ernest et Célestine

ernest-et-celestineHello there and welcome to the inaugural post of No-English Moviember! This has been plaguing me for months and to finally have the chance to do it is absolutely wondrous. Not only that, but I get to kick off this month with a review of one of the best animated films to come out in recent years, the French-Belgian comedy-drama Ernest et Célestine.
