Movie Review: ‘The Lion King’ Starring Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Chiwetel Ejiofor

Posted: July 19, 2019 at 9:25 am   /   Movie Reviews

1994’s The Lion King is one of, if not the most, beloved animated films released by Disney.  With a story inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, wonderful score by Hans Zimmer, catchy new songs by Elton John, and the beautiful hand-drawn animation of the Disney renaissance in the ’90s – the film was an instant classic. Today Simba and friends […]

Robert Downey Jr. Lends His Talents to Dreamworks

Posted: January 17, 2011 at 2:01 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I am kind of shocked that a studio hasn’t locked down Robert Downey Jr. sooner to do an animated film.  Then again, he really only made his big comeback in 2008 with Iron Man.  The man has got a great voice for animation, and his name will get butts in the seats.  At least that’s […]

Posted: January 10, 2011 at 10:09 am   /   Film, Local

“The Hidden Gem” is all about my personal favorite films.  And while some of the films I discuss may not be hidden to most movie fans, they are hidden to a majority of my friends and people that I have talked to.  So I want to discuss them for three reasons: 1. Tell you why […]

New “Rango” HD Trailer Starring Johnny Depp

Posted: December 14, 2010 at 3:24 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie Trailers

This trailer doesn’t get me pumped to see this movie at all.  It certainly shows you much more of the story than the first teaser, but I’m not sure that even Johnny Depp can get me in the theater for it.  But Tangled also had awful trailers, and I absolutely loved that film.  Anything is […]

DVD Review – “Waking Sleeping Beauty”

Posted: December 9, 2010 at 9:46 am   /   Film, Local

I briefly talked about Waking Sleeping Beauty last week in my “DVD Picks of the Week” so I don’t want to reiterate everything I said before.  But the main point is that I love Disney musicals, and as soon as I saw the trailer I was dying to see it.  After getting a chance to […]

Extended Comic Con Trailer of DreamWorks’ “Megamind” Starring Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and Brad Pitt

Posted: July 26, 2010 at 11:32 pm   /   Local, Movie Trailers

To be honest the first teaser trailer of this looked kind of lame. There just wasn’t that much humor in it, and it looked like kind of a rehashed idea. However, with each subsequent trailer that has come out for it, I have been more intrigued. This extended trailer has me absolutely excited for the […]

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Posted: June 30, 2009 at 10:10 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The third film in the trilogy is superior to the awful second, but doesn’t have the heart and all around quality of the first film in the series; and it utilizes the use of 3-D fairly well in a couple of key action scenes. Diego, Manny, and Sid are all living together in there own […]
