Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on Blu-Ray today, so we’ve taken the opportunity for a little love letter.

1977 was an important year for me. Firstly, it was the year I was born, so maybe important is a bit of an understatement. It’s the year Elvis died – we shared a month on the planet before his heart skipped away. And on May 25th, Star Wars was released in America.

Zootopia Poster is full of Animal Puns

News / Comments Off on Zootopia Poster is full of Animal Puns

Zootopia

The direct of Zootopia, Byron Howard, has released the first poster for the movie. It seems to take place in a world with anthropomorphic animals. In a Disney movie. Weird, right? Is also seems like the primary industry in that world is pun manufacturing. Also weird for a Disney movie. There’s gotta be more to it, right? Some vast conspiracy.

We’ll find out just how deep this mystery runs next spring.

The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay

It’s December which means I have pretty much exactly no time to do anything lately but that hasn’t stopped me from seeing a couple of movies, just from writing them up in a timely manner.

But since I’ve seen so many you’re gonna get the shortest version of each of these reviews that I can muster.

Big Hero 6

Disney Animation Studios has had a bit of a resurgence lately and this fall they’re pretty much going to cement the idea that they are the Disney of animation again with this collaboration with Marvel because both of those names plus a movie that looks like it might be great are going to be mean dolla dolla bills yo.

Or whatever the kids these days are saying. Let’s watch!

If, like me, you consider the high point of modern Disney movies to be all about Ariel, Beast, and Aladdin, then it turns out you’re a massive fan of Glen Keane. Over the course of 37 years Glen had a hand in 20 productions and now, two years after he left Disney, he’s made an animated short for Google’s Spotlight Series. It’s called Duet, and you should  watch it right now.

It’s time to interrupt the endless barrage of Christmas calories

that I seem intent on shoving down my throat as quickly as possible

seriously, it’s like Gluttony Man in Se7en

but I don’t have my body tied down,

my arms are wilfully ladling anything alcoholic or sweet or tasty into my mouth

to round up what I think have been my personal favourite games and movies of 2013.

News / Comments Off on Disney Gets Full Rights to New Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones

Remember how Disney bought everything LucasFilm and thus Star Wars and Indiana Jones? Well, Indiana Jones has historically been distributed by Paramount and that was cause for some concern. Which in Hollywood means “lawyering”. Good news though, the lawyering is over and a deal has been hammered out.

Review: Frozen

Frozen

There’s two things I can tell you right off the bat about Frozen. First, contrary to what the marketing would have you believe, it isn’t a movie about a snowman and a reindeer. Second, it is in facta Disney Princess movie.

What’s interesting about these two facts is that I have no idea why they marketed so heavily on the snowman and the reindeer because it’s actually a really good Disney Princess movie. More than that it’s actually just a really good movie.
