HBO MAX gives us a sequel to 1983’s A Christmas Story. Did we need one? You be the judge. I myself was not a huge fan of the original film, though I did find a few scenes funny and iconic; the leg lamp, the tongue stuck to the pole. The original Ralphie is back, as […]
DOCTOR WHO is now on DISNEY+, and the BBC. So it is out with the old and in with the new . In the last special, the Doctor regenerated back into David Tennant, but that’s only temporary for the 60th anniversary. The next Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa, hasn’t arrived yet. However, when the Fifteenth Doctor finally […]
APPLE TV+: This is Will Smith’s first big project since the Oscar slap. So it will be interesting to see if there is any box office backlash from it. Emancipation Is being released in theaters in December, before going to Apple TV, for Oscar consideration. Which is ironic, since Will Smith won’t be able to […]
DISNEY+: The very first Marvel Studios Christmas special streams in one week.
DISNEY/PIXAR: Honestly, it’s been a while since a Pixar film has blown me away. They’ve been good, don’t get me wrong. But to me, they haven’t been great. And I remember a time when all Pixar films were ‘Event’ films. That being said; this new trailer doesn’t do it for me. It looks akin to ‘Soul’, ‘Onward’, and ‘Inside Out’, instead of being its own thing. Though that might just be because of the similar character designs… Here’s the official word… ‘Check out the teaser trailer for Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental,” an all-new, original feature film set in Element City, where fire-, water-, land- and air-residents live together. The story introduces Ember, a tough, quick-witted and fiery young woman, whose friendship with a fun, sappy, go-with-the-flow guy named Wade challenges her beliefs about the world they live in.”
DC ANIMATION Just released the trailer for ‘The Legion of Super-heroes’ animated home/video feature. It seems to revolve around Supergirl coming to the future for some additional superhero training, and then chaos ensues and an adventure begins.
DISNEY: This movie takes off next week. But I’m not even sure what it’s about really. A diverse family is on a strange new world… doing what? Is the film fun, is it exciting, Is it emotional? Is it good? Because LIGHTYEAR wasn’t, and didn’t that take place on a strange world too? But i […]
Criterion Collection makes the Infernal Affairs trilogy look beautiful and loads it up with bonus features reflecting on the films and archival from when they were made.
NETFLIX: This looks so much better than the Disney Pinocchio, which was a forgettable “Live-Action” re-hash of their animated classic. I mean, even Tom Hanks couldn’t inject any life into the production, as he ‘talked’ his one song… but Guillermo’s version of the wooden boy tale looks imaginative, magical, and new. Check out the new […]
