Trolls World Tour (2020) Review

Trolls World Tour (2020) Review

The original Trolls just came out of nowhere and surprised families all across the globe. Who would have thought that an old pet-rock-esque throwaway doll that was past its prime could have so much heart? Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake breathed life into protagonist Poppy and Branch respectively, and they’re basically doing the same thing … Read more

Inside Out (Movie) Review

Inside Out (Movie) Review 2

After a flurry of movies in the 2000s that somehow managed to be crowd pleasing works of animated entertainment and almost audaciously ambitious films, Pixar’s output has cooled as of late. A splat of sequels, prequels, and a token Disney Princess feature were all well made and quite profitable, but lacked the depth that defined … Read more

There are a number of reasons why: nostalgia, simplicity, cross-marketing in videogames/playsets, … Read more

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 (Movie) Review

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 (Movie) Review 1

When Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs hit screens in 2009, it proved to be an unexpected treat that arrived with little hoopla beyond sporting one of the weirdest (and wordiest) titles of all time. However, the movie proved to be a strangely subversive comedy gem that even managed to sneak Eraserhead references into a … Read more
