Just when you thought you knew what was going on in your child’s brain, up pops Inside Out a funny little film from Disney/PIXAR. The animation is PIXAR flawless, the direction pin point and the voice acting, well “pitch perfect”. The family film however is not without a downside as I feel it’s a bit too depressing. This little adventure is amusing, but let’s hope the sequel is a little more cheerful, adventurous, filled with fasciation and kindhearted next time. “Just saying.” Read more

Strange Magic, a Cool Animated Film

STRANGE MAGIC boxart

Although the film Strange Magic, now on DVD, did not receive a huge theatrical box-office like most animated films, for me it’s a fun filled, artistically beautiful film that just missed its audience. The film actually works for most children 3 to 13, but should get more attention from females. I like the superb animation, very good voice acting and enjoyable soundtrack.

WOLFY BOXART best

 

Disturbing, mostly violent, dark, spooky, use of rude language and very few redeeming qualities, the animated film Wolfy, The Incredible Secret is NOT for kids. The foreign made movie from France does a fair job aesthetically, provides some adventure yet loses the moral values that most animated family films in the United States are a mainstay. This is not Disney folks! And due to the elementary story should not even appeal to those that fit into the coming of age audience of over 13. Read more
