Nick's Top 5 Animated Movies of 2014

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 small steps her...

WB working on Lego Batman spin-off

The LEGO Movie remains one of my favorite films of 2014. It was charming, smart, and parents have told me their kids didn't move an inch during the whole thing (which is a huge deal). One of the breakouts was Will Arnett as Batman, now a co...

Here's an awesomely adorable LEGO Movie blooper reel

It's been a week now since I've seen The LEGO Movie (and reviewed it!), and I still can't get it out of my head. Everything is still awesome, I want a double decker couch, and my friends and I have been quoting Lego Batman lines back and f...

10 Movie Valentines for 2014

Lets face it, Valentine's Day has become so compressed with corporate Hallmark cards, that no company has the chance to make Valentines with the reckless abandon that we used to see back in the late 80's and early 90's.  And that is wh...
