Animation


Mamaro Hosoda's films are always triumphs of animation. Known for Wolf Children, Summer Wars, and even The Digimon Movie, his films have a distinct and flowing art style that's always very pleasing to the eye. On top of that,...


It seems like I'm talking about Spider-Man every other day, so I care a little less every time. But you know what brings me back into the fold? Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the guys who're pretty much involved with every movie...


Oh man, The Little Prince is one of my absolute favorite books, so when I heard they were making a new animated film version, my attention went up. The first trailer, while entirely in French, gave an impressive look at the ...


Since Studio Ghibli is still stuck in purgatory, and haven't announced a new feature since all of that financial weirdness reared its ugly head some time ago, When Marnie Was There might possibly be the studio's final film. ...




So the other day, Zack Snyder tweeted out a short teaser to promote the five second tease of a trailer that WB wants you to go and buy IMAX tickets to see. Since that whole situation was ridiculous, we kept ourselves clean o...


Anyone who doesn't like the Adam West Batman TV show is clearly not someone you should be associating with. Now that it's finally on Blu-ray we've all been given a chance to watch its splendor once again, and it seems we...


I know what you're asking yourself, and yes, the Smurfs are getting another movie and despite the fact that the whole premise was actually making a ton of money Sony has decided to reboot the series. They'll be releasing the ...


What do you get when you cross one of the most influential anime movies ever made with the most famous animated family of all time? You get Bartkira, an ongoing collaboration amongst artists across the nation with the lofty g...


Did you hear the recent news? They’re going to make an Adventure Time movie, and honestly, that’s pretty darn rad. I love a good cartoon to movie adaption—and not just a live action adaption or remake, we ho...


I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods was one of the funnest animated films I saw last year. Didn't give it enough credit because it was essentially an hour of a dude punching a giant...


Isao Takahata is one of the directors out of Studio Ghibli that seems to be less discussed by fans in the west.  Takahata is responsible for directing some of the most riveting and eerie films to come from the Japanese a...


It's hard to believe that Shaun The Sheep is only Aardman's fourth stop motion feature film. The studio initially made its name in the UK with short films in the 70s and 80s such as Creature Comforts, but it was with the re...


This past month, Laika recently wrapped up a touring gallery of original art, posters, props, and puppets from their animated features.  You know, those last few critically acclaimed stop-motion films of the past few yea...


This may come as a surprise to you, but Spongebob Squarepants is still the juggernaut of a cartoon it was when it first debuted back in 1999. Never ceasing to keep kids' attention thanks to its unique characters and ever evol...


They're baaaaaaack! Or, rather, they're here, since Minions serves as a prequel. Arguably the best characters in the Despicable Me franchise finally have their own film, and I couldn't be more excited. In Minions, ...


I haven't been very silent about this, but I am actually mad hyped for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water. The cartoon has been very good the past few years (and was even entertaining at inception, too), an...


Back when Dreamworks Animation needed to compete with Disney, they stopped making films in 2D (even if those films are some of the greats) and churned out ten Shreks to a very successful box office performance each time. Basi...


2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it just wouldn't be fair to ignore the movies in the 11 through 15 slots.  So let's get the ball rolling...  


Ever since the animated Justice League specials committed to the New 52 continuity (after The Flashpoint Paradox), they haven't been very good. I don't know what's to blame for that either. Is it the comics themselves? Is it...


Anybody who knows me knows that seals are my favorite animal, so when I started seeing advertisements for Song of the Sea, I knew I had to check it out. Cartoon Saloon had already impressed me with its first feature film, Sec...


2014 was a pretty good year for animated films. But unlike the year before, which featured a huge Disney film with headlining women and lots of family friendly features, 2014 was a complete boy's club. While there were a few ...


You know how I wrote that list of the ten best trailers of 2014? Well, I've already found my favorite trailer of 2015. It may be mostly the same as last trailer we got for The Peanuts Movie, but shows off what great trailer ...


Remember Ninjai: The Little Ninja? No! Back in the early aughts the Ninjai Gang put out a series of animations that were pretty much the best flash stuff you could see online. Brutally violent and full of awesome action, it ...


For a Pixar film we've heard relatively little about The Good Dinosaur. That may be because it's run into so much trouble in production. It was delayed from a 2014 release to a November, 2015 release, but things seem to be ro...


I've been digging how Pixar has been marketing their upcoming animated project, Inside Out. This latest trailer, like the last, may not feature any of the story, but it's got enough substance to chew on. I will never kn...


It's only 2014, but judging from this international trailer for The Little Prince, we're already calling the year's best animated film. This is our first look at the adaptation of the childern's classic, and I suppose it's a...


Did you think Disney was just going to let the incredible success of Frozen sit there and... well continue to be successful thanks to toys, television and marketing? No, that's not how they play. Idinia Menzel says that ...


Although I'm not a big fan of his work, Paul Feig seems to be approaching Peanuts in just the right way. With the right amount of respect you'd hope any rebooted property gets, The Peanuts Movie is full of unbelievably great ...


Ah yes, Thanksgiving. Normally, during this holiday I'm at my parents' house and I get to eat all sorts of delicious things my mom makes (although I hated all of it when I was little and kept insisting when I was grown up I'd...


Now here's something that came out of absolutely nowhere. This must've been buried under all of that Star Wars after Disney acquired Lucasfilm, but apparently, Strange Magic is an animated film inspired by a story from Georg...


It's Flixgiving! The Flixist staff has gathered together around the cool glow of the TV to share movies that we're thankful for; ones that have impacted our lives, ones that we feel are important, and ones that we just love. ...


UPDATE: The posters for Joy, Anger, Disgust, and Fear have been added to the gallery. I don't know whose idea it was to cast Lewis Black as Anger, but give them a medal. Original story below!  Pixar's Inside Out is...


After our first tease of the new look for the Peanuts in The Peanuts Movie it was hard not to get pretty excited and now that we have a full blown trailer landing (reportedly leaked by Snoopy) it is even harder. This co...


When Disney scooped up Marvel they picked up a ton of comic book history and properties. You had to guess they wouldn't use them all in the same way (i.e. massive blockbusters), and Big Hero 6 is the first Marvel film to...


With the Toy Story series remaining a big marketing juggernaut long after the trilogy officially ended in 2010, it was almost inevitable that we'd get another film (especially seeing as how we're getting more and more TV spec...


This final trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar shows off a bit of the footage Matt checked out during New York Comic Con. He said it was surprisingly entertaining and I can't blame him. I found myself laughing quite a bit...


The Oscars are coming and that means we'll need to start talking about nominees, but before that we have to discuss the submitted films to be nominated. At least for animated films we need to. There have been 20 submitted, 8 ...


I'm not ashamed by how much I laughed at this trailer. Sure the new Spongebob film, Sponge Out of Water, will appeal mostly to kids with its bright colors and hyperactive characters, but Spongebob's stuck around for a reason...


You know those cute minions in the Despicable Me movies that are funny for maybe a few minutes? Those guys are getting their own movie. The film follows three Minions (Kevin, Stuart, and Bob) on their search for a master in ...


It's been teased for a few days now, but we're finally getting another taste of Adi Shankar produced Dredd with the (techincally unofficial) Judge Dredd: Superfiend animated miniseries. Although this isn't the sequel we...
