Oh 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”
So Fox, the film’s out. We’ve all seen the reaction. Tell us, was this all a ploy? Because if it was it damn worked wonders! Who’d have thought that making a completely sub-par, stitched up Deadpool in a superhero equivalent of Plan 9 from Outer Space, go quite on the film for years, leak test footage, see the euphoric response, and then release the film to a wild fans and watch the money roll in. Sheer genius!
Onto the second post of No-English Moviember and we move up into frozen Scandinavian lands of Norway to find the film Kraftidioten (In Order of Disappearance) which teaches us a life affirming and valuable lesson. Do not mess with snow plough drivers, or Norwegians, or Serbians, or pretty much anyone living in Norway regardless of ethnicity.
So… how are you all? It’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry, I’m not so good at striking up a conversation with possibly many people that I have barely spoken/written to in months, but I’m going to have a bash at it, for my blog’s health as well as my own.

January, 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?
I suspect many of you may not have heard about this film. Neither had I in fact until I found out my local cinema was doing a few showings. I watch the trailer and thought “Well that looks… interesting”.
“But Chronic Chronicler”, you may be asking again you very questioning reader, “doesn’t interesting usually mean something is, or was, terrible and you just don’t want to say it?” You are very observant mystery reader and yes I agree with you.
I seem to have a thing going on with my ‘inner socialist’ at the moment as, if you read my review on Our Zoo: Episode 4, or know me in real life, you’ll notice I take a bit of joy in seeing the working man rise up against the ruling elite, be it snobby aristocrats or the indifferent government. Well it seems that writer Stephen Beresford and director Matthew Warchus have noticed this quality and decided to make this film so that it would make me nearly have a seizure of joy on seeing two things I love come together: equality and workers’ rights.
