  • Cinephile Showdowns utilizing Clayton’s Top 10 Films of 2018 and 2017.
  • Looking at Walt Disney Pictures’ slate for 2019 that includes “Dumbo” (visual and production contender?), “Penguins” (can it be the first nature doc for the studio in documentary feature?), “Toy Story 4” (animated frontrunner?), “The Lion King” (visual effects?), “Artemis Fowl” (popular series adaptation), “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” (the surprise sequel inclusion to the year), “Frozen II” (can lightning strike twice?), and “Aladdin” (can it do more than money?).
