Tangled (2010)
It's a typical Disney film and you can expect all that you can expect out of a Disney film.    Tangled is the 21st century Rapunzel and if you've not read the outline of the story, …

Movie: Fantastic Mr. Fox

A Christmas Story
This is one movie that you can never get tired of seeing. This was made in 1983 and depicted the 1940's, and every time that I watch this it makes me take a step back in time. Ralphie (played by Peter …

Toy Story 3
After watching this film I have to admit that the Toys are my favorite Disney characters ever! In this one, Andy has grown up and is preparing for college. The toys are worried that they will be thrown …

   I might as well come right out with it:  Any attempts to discount Pixar’s absolute mastery of the craft of computer animated features are absolutely futile from this critic from …

Tangled (2010)
In the late 80's Disney put out The Little Mermaid.  The film more or less established a formula for Disney that they pretty much kept running with through the 90's.  You take a simple …

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
I should get my biases out of the way:  I am a big 'Narnia' fan, both of the books, and, so far, of the movies.  The best measuring stick that the latter is up to par as a medium …

Coraline (movie)
Coraline is in my opinion one of the best kids films of the 2000's and one of the best kids movies I have ever seen. It is made by Henry Selick, the mastermind behind Nightmare Before Christmas and …

Despicable Me
It’s good entertainment this week, if animation could be wicked, that is!      Gru reminds me of Michael J. Fox in Family Ties; arrogant but lovable. Then there are also moments …
