Disney-Pixar’s MONSTERS UNIVERSITY World Premiere Tailgate Party at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood

Posted: June 19, 2013 at 6:07 am   /   Film, Local

It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly 12 years since Monsters Inc. hit theaters. It was only Pixar’s fourth feature, releasing fresh off the success of Toy Story 2. By that time the young company had already made a name for itself, and it seemed they could do no wrong. It scored a […]

Alternate Versions of Oz, In Honor of Disney’s ‘Oz The Great And Powerful’

Posted: March 8, 2013 at 6:03 pm   /   Film, Local, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews, Top Original Content

Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful hits theaters today. The film serves as a prequel (of sorts) the MGM classic The Wizard of Oz. I say “of sorts” because Warner Brothers currently holds the rights to the film but not the books (which are in the public domain). As blasphemous as tinkering with a legendary […]

Movie Review: ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ Starring Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Garner

Posted: August 15, 2012 at 8:06 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

It always bothers me leaving a children’s film not knowing exactly who it’s intended audience is. Being that The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a PG Disney film, it certainly isn’t for adults. But after watching it, I can’t see kids 3-10 being entertained by it either. And there just isn’t enough action or […]

Movie Review: Disney-Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Misses the Target

Posted: June 22, 2012 at 8:04 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

There is no doubt that Pixar has set the bar high. There was a time where it seemed like they couldn’t lose, releasing film after film that would become an instant classic.
