Seth Rogen’s ‘Sausage Party’ releases 4th of July PSA

2016 has already left its mark as a strong year for animation with the releases of “Zootopia” and “Finding Dory.” However, there are still a handful of exciting animated films to release in 2016.

Film Review: Kung Fu Panda 3 (★★★)

Visually dazzling and outrageously funny, DreamWorks Animation’s hit franchise shows no signs of petering out. With this third entry, Kung Fu Panda 3 allows audiences to simply marinate in the pleasures that its memorable roster of characters produce. Jack Black’s Po is as lovably buffoonish as ever, while the elite Furious Five – Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey […]

Well, now Danny Boyle has come along […]

Oscar Circuit: Much Support for the “Supporting” Players

A little less than a year ago, we examined one of the most competitive Oscar races we’ve seen in some time.  Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” entered Phase 1 as the critical favorite, many declaring it the one to beat.  “Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” came as a serious threat after bowing at Telluride, Venice, […]

Film Review: The Interview (★★★)

The film North Korea doesn’t want you to see as well as the one that Sony Pictures and theater chains across the country literally wouldn’t let you see (until recently), The Interview is honestly a fairly harmless comedy. Yes, it’s really funny and about as un PC as it gets, but it’s still just a movie. […]
