Pixar’s first prequel is Monsters University, but where does it stack up against the rest of its catalog; most importantly Monsters, Inc.?Read more "Film Review: Monsters University"
Though Rango has some of the best animation I’ve seen in a while, the quirky characters are not enough to keep the familiar story from being subpar to better films of the genre. The film opens on a chameleon named Lars during his daily routine of putting on productions with his fellow tankmates (AKA non-living […]Read more "Now Playing Review – Rango"

The brief backstory of this incarnation of the Sands of Time story starts […]Read more "Now Playing Review – Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time"
This could be the best video game adaptation yet, certainly the best looking, but it still feels all too clichéd and familiar even though the action is pretty exciting at times and there is a lot of it.
