WALL-E: A Spiritual Cousin of Idiocracy

WALL-E, a spiritual cousin of Idiocracy, was one of the best films of 2008 and feels more current some twelve years after its theatrical release. At a time when Disney Animation was still getting back in order, Pixar was churning out some of the best animated films ever.  This film is certainly no exception.  While WALL-E managed to take home an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, it could certainly have crossed over into Best Picture…

Toy Story 4 arrives on Blu-ray

Fans of Toy Story 4 are now able to bring home the fourth chapter of the longest-running Pixar franchise on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. This film could very well mark the end of an era.  One thing that is almost for sure, Woody’s story is likely at an end.  Whether Disney-Pixar Animation decide to go forward remains to be determined.  Your guess is as good as mine at this point.

Toy Story 4 Could Be A Satisfying Conclusion

Toy Story 4 could very well be a satisfying conclusion and the end of the line for the 24-year-old Disney-Pixar franchise. The opening prologue starts out some nine years ago when the team comes together to save a toy.  Unbeknownst to them, Bo Peep (Annie Potts) is set to be given away.  It’s not an easy farewell for Woody (Tom Hanks) after all they’ve been through but all one can do is move forward in…

The Walt Disney Company Will Own The 2019 Box Office

Films under the Disney umbrella earned over $3 billion at the box office in 2018 but the company is looking to exceed expectations in 2019.

The Incredibles 2 May Be The Best Pixar Sequel

Taking place almost immediately after the first film, The Incredibles 2 may just be the best Pixar sequel ever. When The Incredibles first came out in November 2004, the superhero genre was not as saturated as it is now.  To bring the family of superheroes back some fourteen years later meant that writer-director Brad Bird had to deliver, what with the current market being what it is.  This is a good problem to have.  It…
