Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot happened I was mostly just worried since I'm of the age where I like to pretend that my generation can lay claim to the heroes in a half shell. But that's pretty ridiculous considering almos...

First trailer for Emma Watson starring Beauty and the Beast

I'm still weirded out by the fact that Disney is making adaptations of their adaptations of famous fairy tales, but so far they've been pretty good or even revolutionary so let's roll with it. The next one up is Beauty and the Bea...

Review: The Angry Birds Movie

With videogame adaptations becoming more common, it was only a matter of time before we would end up in this situation. A videogame popular for its gameplay and mechanics rather than its story would get the big screen treatment as is the ca...

Power Rangers, reboots, and you

I f**king love Power Rangers. When I say love, I mean I've been following the show for twenty-two years. Every awkward season, every bad theme song (Operation Overdrive has a rap, if you were wondering which one was the worst), every castin...

See Angry Birds early and free

With Ratchet & Clank flopping hard at the box office we all must turn to Angry Birds to deliver us the children's video game movie we evidently wanted. Wait, no one wanted it? Well, what if you don't have to pay for it? If you...

Nick reacts to the new Power Rangers look

We got our first look at the Power Rangers movie villain and we know the cast, but now we finally get to the see the Rangers in their suits. As our resident Power Rangers expert we shall now go to Nick Valdez for his initial reaction. ...

Review: Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank is the epitome of a film that doesn't do anything wrong, but that doesn't make it right. I suppose I should start by saying that I have not kept up with the games this movie is based on. I played the original and se...

Review: The Jungle Book

At this point in my jaded film critic life it takes a lot to actually impress me with special effects. We've seen Transformers and giant blue aliens and everything in between on screen by now, and great digital effects are almost second nat...

Iron Giant Signature Edition Blu-ray coming in September

Last year we all had the chance to see The Iron Giant, Brad Bird's first and possibly best film, in theaters again with added footage. It was dubbed the Signature Edition and was pretty awesome, especially since many folks didn't catch it i...

 
 
LEGO Batman photo

Two LEGO Batman trailers in one week!

Are you ready for a second LEGO Batman trailer? Of course you are. By the time this movie comes out you're going to want to have seen the entire thing in trailer form. This one is a bit more of a clip than a trailer, but it still hosts...

Jungle Book character posters full of actors

When you've packed your movie full of famous people but none of them are going to be seen there's only one solution: take dramatic photos of those famous people and put their animal characters with them. Clearly Disney knew this and we have...

New Angry Birds Movie trailer is pissed in more ways than one

The first trailer for The Angry Birds Movie was not particularly good. It was rife with bad animated movie cliches and seemed pretty lazy and silly (bad-silly, not good-silly). There's a new trailer for The Angry Birds Movie you can check o...

See Kung Fu Panda 3 early and free

Has the shine worn off the Kung Fu Panda franchise yet? It's a long time between these sequels and I've just gotten less and less enthused about the series, but both 1 and 2 were enjoyable so maybe three will work too. I was ...

 
 
The Boy and The World photo

Watch the gorgeous trailer for The Boy and The World

The Boy and the World has been on my radar for a few months after seeing still from the film. This Brazilian animated feature won great acclaim at film festivals, and is currently on the shortlist for Best Animated Feature. Told without dia...

Enjoy the first trailer for Finding Dory

Finding Dory is finally here... in trailer form. Of all the hotly anticipated Pixar films (which is all of them) I'm most hotly anticipating this one. This first trailer gives us a little hint at the story, which finds Dory, Nemo and M...

First Finding Dory poster swims in

I think I say this every time a Pixar sequel comes up, but it's worth saying: Toy Story 3 basically gave them carte blanche to do whatever the hell they want. When they knocked a third film out of the park when everyone was basically h...

 
 
Peanuts Review photo

Review: The Peanuts Movie

Thanks to my mom, I've been following Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang for as long as I can remember. Like Charlie, I too am a sad sack who's life the universe sees fit to ruin at all cost. So when I first heard 20th Century bringing the ...

Power Rangers movie casts its teenagers with attitude

Waiting for Power Rangers movie news has been excruciating. Because the film isn't releasing until 2017, we've got all sorts of sites releasing news from the rumor mill and none of them will have any bearing on the final product. It's far t...

Disney casts its next princess, Moana

I've been pretty excited for Disney's Moana since it was announced. After hearing their next project was about a Polynesian princess, and after Frozen, Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled turned out pretty good, they've earned both my at...

New Peanuts trailer further confuses us

The Peanuts Movie confuses the heck out of me. From the animation style and general feeling of the early trailers it seemed like 20th Century Fox might actually be honing in on what made the strip and TV specials great. As we've seen more t...

See Hotel Transylvania 2 early and free

Apologies for the late notice on this one, but if you're looking for something to do with the kids tomorrow how about a movie? We've got passes to Hotel Transylvania 2 that you can grab. The first one was not a bad Adam Sandler movie, ...

Theatrical release animated Scooby-Doo movie in the works

At some point we all had to admit to ourselves that Matthew Lillard, the man born to play Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, had aged out of the role. Thanks to that we all knew that no more live action Scooby-Doo films would be coming. How could you ...

New Good Dinosaur trailer almost drowns a good dinosaur

Our first peak at The Good Dinosaur didn't give us much to go on, but it definitely wet our whistle for something that looks drastically different from previous Pixar films. Now, with this new trailer, we know it looks drastically diff...

Disney also working on live action Sword in the Stone remake

Just after announcing their plans for a live action Aladdin prequel, Disney is literally just redoing all of movies now. Why not Aristocats next? Or a super depressing Fox and the Hound? Hell, give me a live action Goof Troop movie why don'...

Disney working on live action Aladdin prequel, Genies

We're going to get a lot of live action reboots of our favorite animated reboots of old fairy tales in the near future. Disney is working on a fair amount of them themselves (like Pete's Dragon, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast) in ord...

Review: Minions

Whether or not you've seen the Despicable Me movies, you definitely know who these little twinkie looking guys are. Perfectly designed to appeal to almost every demographic (a Xanax like shape, a bright and happy yellow, speaking in a faux ...

First trailer for The Secret Lives of Pets not so secret

Adorable animals doing wacky things? That sounds like a bonafide hit to me, and with the team behind Despicable Me making it it may actually be good. The Secret Lives of Pets follows the basic premise of all good children's fare: anima...

New Peanuts Movie trailer actually kicks that football

From our first look at The Peanuts Movie it was pretty clear that something that at least looked fantastic was coming our way. The first trailer didn't tell us that much more, but it still looked damn good. Now we have our first peak a...

First look at Get Smurfy, the new Smurfs movie

Here it is. The first look you've all been waiting for since we saw that concept art for the new Smurfs movie. You weren't waiting for this? Same on you. What could make you not excited for a Smurfs movie? Oh, right.  Well you should p...

 
 
Zootopia Teaser photo

First teaser trailer for Disney's Zootopia

While I still miss Disney's 2D animated style since Winnie the Pooh was great but not a film to end the legacy on, Disney's been hitting it out of the park with their CG efforts. They've found quite a groove with Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and...

Jason Reitman to write and direct animated Beekle

Joason Reitman has not been doing so well recently with Labor Day and Men, Women & Children both flopping hard so a dramatic shift sounds in order. That shift is taking on an animated film for Dreamworks in the form of Beekle. ...

 
 
Tomorrowland Review photo

Review: Tomorrowland

If you're like me you were pretty excited for Tomorrowland. Almost everything Brad Bird touches is magic and his obsession with nostalgia made a perfect fit for a film based off a Disneyland park whose future never came to be. Plus, George ...

Smurfs reboot gets a release date

I know what you're asking yourself, and yes, the Smurfs are getting another movie and despite the fact that the whole premise was actually making a ton of money Sony has decided to reboot the series. They'll be releasing the reboot on March...

Here's a bunch of neat posters for The Peanuts Movie

The more I see of The Peanuts Movie, the more I fall in love with it. Everything just feels right. It's got a cast of unknown kids, looks fabulous, and I'll probably buy a few of these posters. I just dig that stark yellow. Check all the po...

Warner Bros is working on an Adventure Time movie

This next bit of news is algebraic, slamacow, mathmathical, and all of the other phrases Adventure Time used in the early seasons and threw away later. When we usually get news of a successful kids property getting a full film treatment, it...

Review: The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

This may come as a surprise to you, but Spongebob Squarepants is still the juggernaut of a cartoon it was when it first debuted back in 1999. Never ceasing to keep kids' attention thanks to its unique characters and ever evolving comedy. Mo...

Super Bowl TV Spot for Spongebob: Sponge Out of Water
