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

Storks

Warner Bros. Pictures’ new animated film Storks main theme can be seen one of two ways: 1) a backhanded slap against big business, or 2) a reigniting of the flames of one’s true purpose in the world.

The Wild Life

Two years ago, I reviewed Thunder and the House of Magic, an animated film which wore its “Hey, kids! Here’s a lesson, now swallow it!” ethos on its 3D sleeve. I’d given it points for having its heart in the right place, but not much else. Now, one of that film’s directors and the production company are […]
