The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature has a trailer

With a title like The Nut Job 2 being tossed about, my expectations were unusually high. So, it's not a Mel Gibson biopic. Big deal. And no, it's not a cleverly veiled marketing ploy for Charlie Sheen's 9/11 movie--whatever the hell th...

 
 
Review: Okja photo

Review: Okja

Bong Joon-Ho's Okja is a chimera of genre and tone. It's a lovable mutant like its titular super pig--the best super pig, we're told, the superlative like something out of Charlotte's Web. Which makes sense. As a director, Bong has avoided ...

Disney working on live-action The Lion King remake

Bojack Horseman 4 Lyfe photo

Bojack Horseman is the Spec Ops: The Line of TV Shows

The first season of Bojack Horseman sort of came out of nowhere, at least as far as I was concerned. Back then, I was underemployed and watched pretty much anything that seemed vaguely interesting. I generally trusted (and continu...

Adorable animals doing wacky things? That sounds like a bonafide hit to me, and with the team behind Despicable Me making it it may actually be good. The Secret Lives of Pets follows the basic premise of all good children's fare: anima...

Aubrey Plaza to voice Grumpy Cat in upcoming Grumpy Cat movie

Look, the world doesn't need a Grumpy Cat movie. Grumpy Cat was fun for like a week in 2012. Besides, basically all cats are grumpy, that's why they're so great. Anyway, regardless of what I think, a Grumpy Cat Lifetime Christmas movie is h...

Dreamworks picks up Felix the Cat rights

Felix the Cat is a bit of an oddball. Not just character-wise within the various incarnations of his television shows and movies, but also his iconic status. I feel like most people can recognize the character, even if they haven't seen any...

A look at the 2014 Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films

One easily overlooked part of the flurry of The Academy Awards is the shorts sections. Perhaps they seem less interesting or less consequential due to their bite-size nature, but to me, short films are often all the more accessible and feas...

Pet Sematary gets a remake with 28 Weeks Later director

As someone who enjoys the occasional horror film, I don't love seeing original concepts run through the ground over and over again. Sure that's what most of the genre is built on, but I do avoid lots of unnecessary sequels and remakes (alth...
