Mary Poppins Returns Movie Review
Despite the over fifty-year gap between the first Poppins film released back in 1964 and the new sequel, Disney has brought the story up to date. Even correcting quite a few of the wonky elements from the first edition and resisting the temptation to go all CGI crazy. The film still has that old school charm visually and this includes what appears to be hand drawn animation.
After the fact, Emily Blunt seems the perfect choice to pick up the reins from Julie ...
Christopher Robin Movie Review
Now weather those lessons had any longterm positive effect or not, they did provide a lot of feel good moments. Christopher Robin’s lesson is a simple one but it’s told in such a charming and childlike way that it can’t help but draw you in and give you a case of those old time warm and fuzzies.
Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) has left his childhood dreams and fantasies far behind him after serving in World War II and has become a workaholic. The neglect ...

In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head ...
Incredibles 2 Movie Review
Animation technology has changed massively since 2004 and the new edition looks great, with far more detail in the backgrounds, the character’s details are also enhanced. Bob Parr AKA Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) is even sporting a five o’clock shadow. This expansion of detail was achieved without losing any of the original’s comic charm or colour palette.
Adding quite a large number of new characters was also handled with aplomb. The story focus is on ...

Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole ...

Cars 3 Movie Review
The use of the late actor’s sound bites from previous films is seamlessly integrated into the new edition. It shows a love and respect for that titan of the big screen that feels real. The film's message of dealing with the advancement of technology and feeling left behind by it is an interesting one given the context.
As always the animation looks fantastic and thankfully stays squarely in the animated world and resists the need to be photo realistic. It’s a ...
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
In some ways, Captain Jack has his swagger back. It’s a silly return to the fun of the first film and doesn’t take itself too serious. Depp charts no new ground but his original idea of channeling Keith Richards and the cartoon skunk Pepe Le Pew still works well, so well in fact that his character has become ubiquitous. Pistol and Boo would be proud.
The cast this time features some fresh new faces, Australian actor Brenton Thwaites as son of Will, Henry ...
Finding Dory Movie Review
Finding Nemo is such a timeless institution in our movie culture - whether you be a child or adult - that a sequel which in large parts rehashes its predecessor is simply a moot exercise.
Finding Dory follows almost identical beats and set ups - a fish searching the open ocean for lost loved ones; encountering frightening denizens of the sea; aided by new found friends; becomes ‘imprisoned’ in an aquarium from which they must escape etc. In fact, every element of Nemo has its ...
