Trolls Band Together : Movie Review

Here we go with another Trolls movie. Which means another moral to whip at us, another opportunity to mash pop standards together and repackage them for modern ears, another soundtrack to sell. But what’s great about Trolls Band Together is that even the movie itself seems to know the franchise is wearing out its welcome; […]

DC League of Super-Pets (2022) – Movie Review

How do you make formulaic plots and stories attractive and vital? It’s a question director/co-writer Jared Stern and co-writer John Whittington have answered with DC League of Super-Pets, their cinematic spin on the “disparate characters come together to defeat evil” children’s film chestnut.

The Bad Guys (2022) – Movie Review

A children’s animated film which captures the snappy cool and dash of Steven Soderbergh’s Out of Sight and his Ocean’s Trilogy? I’m a sucker for heist films, so it’s not a question of “Sign me up,” but more “Give it to me. Now.” The Bad Guys – based on a series of children’s books by […]

The Spine of Night (2022) – Movie Review

The good do not flourish here; only those with power stand a chance at existing in this world. Even more so when said power comes from a supernatural plant, […]

Onward (2020) – Movie Review

There are so many things to admire about the emotionally-charged Onward, Disney/Pixar’s latest offering. Themes of grief, single parenthood, sibling relationships, and broken families trying to put things back together accompany a sharp social commentary about how much of our world we take for granted every day. The nimble voice cast and vivid animation more […]

Abominable (2019) – Movie Review

Abominable, the latest offering from DreamWorks Animation, has a lot going on in its 97 minutes. It also requires you to sit through every one of those 97 minutes due to photos included in the end credits. Yet the film doesn’t make you feel like it’s an obligation to do so; instead, you want to […]
