Inside Out + 3D Review (No Spoilers)

Inside_Out_(2015_film)_posterPixar has been in sort of a slump lately. Even though their last outing brought back the entertainment and fun that the last two Pixar films were missing, it failed to capture the same inventiveness and heart that previous installments were able to do in spades. With Inside Out, it is Pixar’s time to recover with the story of the human brain. Continue reading Inside Out + 3D Review (No Spoilers)

LAVA Pixar Short first look

la-et-mn-first-look-pixars-lava-20140711-001jpeg-8dcfe6To be released with Pixar’s new film Inside Out coming next Fall is a short about a volcano and how it is both destructive and creative. This idea works well for a film about a bunch of emotions. From the image, you can see a happy volcano, but this won’t stay that way, as the destructive portion will soon be view able. It’s plot is creative and looks well done on the animation front. Pixar’s new film Inside Out, which is receiving high early praise. Along with it, Lava will be released. What do you guys think of Pixar’s next two original ideas? Comment below and let me know.

Big Hero 6 Trailer Review

I posted an article about Big Hero 6 yesterday to introduce characters and images from the new film and coincidentally a trailer was released this morning. This film is not Eastern in ideas after all. It seems odd to create a balloon robot, but he steals the show much like Josh Gad in Frozen. This trailer’s animation is beautiful and feels like a real environment. Such animation is probably done by what looks like Pixar animators. The characters are immediately likable from the lines that they do have, but this introduces the plot quickly without giving the audience too much. Surprisingly, the screenwriters also make this movie funny. I have not found many Disney films funny with the exception of Tangled which has multiple music numbers that are unorthodox mocking their previous films. They try to hard with Frozen to directly mock their own movies, and Wreck it Ralph is not funny, but very very interesting. However, Big Hero 6, like I said yesterday, is not your average Disney film. I will expect this to be a big hit considering it’s released right before a holiday and has massive appeal for fans of the original anime, the film’s excellent trailer and for all those Disney fans out there. TRAILER: A Comment below on what you think of the trailer.

How different is Disney’s Big Hero 6? Cast of Voices and Images Released

8dd185ba21dab49b60a5e8bace229c33318e3bbdFollowing the 2013 megahit Frozen is Big Hero 6. And Big Hero 6 is a risk. For one thing the concept is outlandish and eastern based. It’s source material is a Marvel anime which marks the first collaboration between Marvel and Disney in animated films. It is about a group of ragtag people/robots/creatures who basically become superheroes/crimefighters in San Fransokyo. Disney’s track record in the past few years has been exceptional with three hits in a row(Frozen, Wreck it Ralph and Tangled). So I have a feeling that they won’t mess up even with the odd source material. All of that aside, I keep gaining excitement for this new project. It looks fun and visually beautiful from what Disney has released. And they have released a lot. Which comes to my next news story of the casting and images. And from what it looks like, it feels like it’s getting and Incredibles-esque universe. I also love how each character has alter egos as well. Images follow:big-hero-6-hirobig-hero-6-baymax1big-hero-6-fredbig-hero-6-go-go-tomagobig-hero-6-wasabibig-hero-6-honey-lemonAs you can see by the designs, you have similar looks from other Disney universe characters. Most notably Honey Lemon as Rapunzel in Tangled. However I don’t see this being  a problem considering the film was critically adored. It’s cast includes Ryan Potter as Hiro, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Jaime Chung as Go Go Tomago, Damon Wayans Jr. as Wasabi and Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon. Other voices involved include the talented Maya Rudolph, Alan Tudyk and James Cromwell. Character descriptions were given for each member of the team as well. Hiro is an inventor and leader of the team, Baymax is a medical robot, Fred is a creature in disguise, Go Go Tomago is an adrenaline junkie, Wasabi is a smart and skillful fighter and Honey Lemon is a smarter character involved on the team. Anyway the film is scheduled for a November 7, 2014 release, check it out and let me know what you think in the comments down below.
