Review: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Season 3)

It's been a hot few months, so it must be time for a new season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. It feels weird that I've become as obsessed about this show as I've had, but ever since the series debuted last November on Netflix, it's...

Review: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

I've been trying to hard not to demean the merit of computer animation, so hopefully this won't come across as a backhanded compliment—with the How to Train Your Dragon series, I truly felt like I was watching films, rather ...

First Trailer for Green Book is out

There have only been a handful of thoughtful dramas in 2018 so far. This genre, once home to countless Oscar-bait films, has downsized significantly in recent years as audiences change. However, Green Book's first trailer shows that, at lea...

First Trailer for How To Train Your Dragon 3 premieres

I don't know why the marketing run for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World seems so slow to me but for some reason, it feels like we've been waiting on this trailer for ages. But it's here now and that's all that matters right? Ta...

What's the point of pop culture references?

Like a huge percentage of people, I went to go see Black Panther last weekend. It's a pretty damn good movie and I had a ton of fun watching it. It's probably up there in my Top 5 favorite Marvel movies if only because it had a great c...

How to Train Your Dragon 3 delayed yet again

Remember when we were all supposed to have already seen How to Train Your Dragon 3 in June of this year? Yea, that didn't happen. Then we were supposed to get in sometime in 2017. Then 2018. Now, and hopefully finally, the movie has be...

First trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 brings the thunder

I've got quite a fondness for the Kung Fu Panda series. It's a competent cartoon that's as funny as it is endearing. It's also got some really good classic kung fu sensibility, and since that's so rare these days, it's nice to see it execut...

Jason Reitman to write and direct animated Beekle

Joason Reitman has not been doing so well recently with Labor Day and Men, Women & Children both flopping hard so a dramatic shift sounds in order. That shift is taking on an animated film for Dreamworks in the form of Beekle. ...

Dreamworks Animation cuts 500 jobs, reveals new release slate

Back when Dreamworks Animation needed to compete with Disney, they stopped making films in 2D (even if those films are some of the greats) and churned out ten Shreks to a very successful box office performance each time. Basically when Drea...

Final Penguins of Madagascar trailer is more funny business

This final trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar shows off a bit of the footage Matt checked out during New York Comic Con. He said it was surprisingly entertaining and I can't blame him. I found myself laughing quite a bit (WERNER HERZOG...

Trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar is all funny business

The Madagascar films never really stuck with me. They're okay to watch in passing, or to occupy the kids for a few minutes, but they're nothing special. That's why I'm surprised I laughed as much as I did with this trailer for The Penguins...

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...

Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2

Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon was refreshing. Setting new standards for book adaptations and animated films, Dragon somehow was everything you look for in an entertaining kid's movie. It had a tight hero's journey story (that was nua...

First trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar movie

  If you had told me in 2005 that Dreamworks was launching a massive franchise with its admittedly entertaining Madagascar I would have pointed you towards the door marked "Wrong." Clearly I should have been leading myself there ...

Second How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer spoils dragons

Much like the first full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2, this second trailer continues to spoil a lot of the movie. But rather than spoil the entirety of the film's plot, we only get a bit of it. It's a shame because this happens t...

Review: Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Second Peabody and Sherman trailer is Valedogtorian

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated films of the year. I wasn't too impressed by the film's first trailer, but I've come around thanks to this second one. The focus is rightly on Mr. Peabody (instead of...

First full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2

Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon was a nice surprise. It was dark, adorable, and had a nice heart at the center of it. It's also really really good looking. Thankfully by the looks of this first trailer, the sequel seeks to follow...

First poster for How to Train Your Dragon 2 soars in

How to Train Your Dragon is easily one of the closest contender in years to actually have a chance at toppling Pixar from the animated movie throne. It was breathtakingly stunning and one of the few early 3D movies that actually l...

First Peabody & Sherman trailer has some little girl too

Peabody's Improbable History was one of my favorite segments from when I caught reruns of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show at three in the morning on Cartoon Network. I loved its nonchalant history lessons, but most of all, I loved its smart ...

Review: Turbo

When you see a trailer for yet another anthropomorphic children's movie you get a little suspicious, especially when that movie isn't made by Pixar. When the things being anthrpomorphized are snails you become even more skeptical. And when ...

Review: The Croods

Trailer: The Croods

For those of you who may not have seen, Dreamworks' Rise of the Guardians hasn't been doing so hot at the box office. In fact, it sorta bombed. Hard. Like, could lose $50 mil hard. What does this have to do with The Croods? Nothing pa...

Dreamworks to lose $50M for Rise of the Guardians failure

Regardless of having to only compete with Wreck It-Ralph for children's attention, Rise of the Guardians had a weak opening weekend, losing out to Twilight 5. This paltry performance apparently didn't get any better since, according to The ...
