  • Movie Review – Missing Link – Fun, will appeal to all ages Laika Animated Studios has given the fans another film to add to their collection of ‘Must See’ stop-motion movies. Hiring Zach Galifianakis as the voice of Susan, the missing link, was a stroke of genius. Even though Susan is a large, frightening creature, Zach provided a voice that took away the ...
  • Dumbo – Lyrics and Video to the Original Disney Classic Song Baby Mine If you don’t mind a having a little cry, watch this original 1941 version of the scene where infant Dumbo is too briefly reunited with mother Jumbo, locked in chains for the crime of protecting her only baby. I can barely type this without tearing up, but it’s one of the ...
  • Dumbo Review – The Original 1941 Animated Classic: High Time for a Remake The original 1941 Dumbo is a strange little movie. Not only is only an hour long (it’s almost a long “short”, if you get my meaning), but has many weird scenes of mostly padding (which would make for great Peetimes, BTW). It’s also…um…wildly racist (there’s no other way to say this, ...
  • Movie Review – Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase Who would have thought that Nancy Drew would still be rocking it after 89 years? This new and improved version of Nancy Drew is perfect for the target audience of today’s prepubescent girl. The movie addresses bullying, body image hating, peer pressure, and the need to fit in as the new ...
  • Zero Song – Video & Lyrics from Ralph Breaks the Internet Ralph Breaks the Internet, the lovable sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, plays almost like a Disney princess musical, which it kind of is, as an affectionate parody Disney surprisingly put forth in a very meta manner. (Disney having a sense of humor about themselves floored me in almost every way.) It’s pretty ...
  • Movie Review – Alita: Battle Angel – Lighter, more Enjoyable than Ghost in the Shell   Alita: Battle Angel is a sort of YA version of Ghost in the Shell, and I’m not exactly thrilled to see the same thing re-done in so short a period of time. At least this one was more enjoyable, with better humor, more likable characters, and a universe that might ...
  • Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Everything’s Not Awesome I was surprised how pleasantly musical the second official Lego movie was, with at least three, and perhaps four, really cheerily/moodily stand-out hits. The original Lego Movie only had the one notable Everything is Awesome tune. It was such an earworm that WB execs clearly decided to build on that base ...
  • The Lego Movie 2 – Super Cool Song by Beck (video and lyrics from the end credit scene) One of the fun surprises about The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is how it became a full-blown musical ensemble, unlike in the three previous Lego films, which had only the one notable song (Everything is Awesome). In Lego 2, there was a moody reprise of Everything is (Not) ...
  • The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Not Evil (by Tiffany Haddish) In a Lego Movie sequel full of big musical earworm hits, Tiffany Haddish managed to pull the house down with her showstopper Not Evil, as Queen Whatevra Wa’nabi explains that while she’s a completely totalitarian Duplo Queen, she’s honestly just sweet and loving, and completely misunderstood. (Also, her name makes meta ...
  • The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Catchy Song (This is song is gonna get stuck inside your head) One thing the Lego movies do so well is serving up fun, fantasmic, and catchy super-chipper songs, guaranteed to take over your brain for days and nights without cease. Good for them, right? That’s a good viral marketing goal for Legos…but it’s a little hard on us, the viewer, trying ...
  • Are the Four Lego Movies Sequels, Prequels, or Stand-Alone Films? As an adult, I’m surprised at how fun these Lego movies are. Are Legos considered kids’ toys? Or are Legos  nostalgic and expensive boxed kits for adults who refuse grow up? Let’s take a look at how each Lego movie fits into the series so far. They all have adult humor ...
  • Movie Review – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part   What a charming, amusing, engaging, but ultimately fluffy bit of fun The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is. It’s right up there with the enjoyment level of the original Lego film and The Lego Batman Movie, although perhaps a little less sensibly told, narratively, than either. The story rambles all over ...
  • Lego Movie 2 Holiday Short – Christmas is Awesome I somehow missed this little video treat over the holidays, and maybe you did too. On the eve of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, it’s worth taking a peek at this short Christmas one-off taking place in the apocalyptic ruins of Bricksburg and the Lego Movie crew (including ...

  • Movie Review – The Kid Who Would Be King is Charming and Sweet   This character driven movie was about a half hour too long, and that’s the only negative thing I have to say about The Boy Who Would Be King. I enjoyed this movie a lot. It has all the ingredients needed to keep the audience of children entertained: out of control roots, ...
  • Rewatch Review – Mary Poppins – The Original & Classic Film As we approach the Oscar season, I decided to rewatch the original Mary Poppins (MP). I’m certainly torn as to which one is better, considering that Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake; it’s a continuation of the Banks family drama. I love Julia Andrews and Emily Blunt as Mary ...
