Toy Story 4 – Teaser Trailer

Pixar’s Toy Story movies have been consistently good, which is really difficult to do. Though they’re not typically movies I’m drawn to, I do understand that they’re oftentimes pretty remarkable and definitely have their audience. Toy Story 4 is the latest in the series, though having just watched the trailer…it looks fine, but hints at […]

Streaming Innovation?

Anyone else think that Walt Disney, a company, based on the movies they produce (keep in mind this is the company that produced 1982’s Tron and animated features like Toy Story and The Incredibles among many, many others) might be running out of steam?

The Incredibles 2 – Official Trailer #1

The trailer for Brad Bird’s The Incredibles 2 dropped a few hours ago and oddly enough the best joke of the trailer happens in the last few seconds with Frozone (Sam Jackson) and his heretofore invisible wife (not because–as far as anyone knows–any superpower than she’s just never appeared in the same room as Frozone […]

I am a huge fan of Disney, not because of their characters–which for the most part I find cloying and treacly–than the business acumen of Bob Iger, who had the sense to see the value in LucasFilm, Marvel Studios, and Pixar, all of which he purchased; each of which are virtually licenses to purchase money. Captain America: […]

Finding Dory – Trailer 2

Before watching the latest trailer for Pixar’s Finding Dory I was prepared to not like it. After all, I find Ellen DeGeneres’ voice irritatingly ingratiating and in this particular context so saccharine cute that if I were diabetic I’d be worried about falling into a coma. That being said, the trailer is pretty captivating. The […]

Finding Dory – Trailer

The quote “What goes up, must come down,” has been attributed to Issac Newton, though apparently no one told Bob Iger over at Walt Disney because two of his studios, Pixar and Marvel Studios, spend most of them time defying gravity, with releases that consistently break box office records. Though maybe Newton got it right […]
