Inside Out 2: Riley’s Mind Gets Crowded As Teen Years Begin

Riley’s mind becomes crowded when additional emotions take the controls in Pixar’s Inside Out 2, a sequel to their 2015 Oscar winner. There is a scene after the credits. Pete Docter has a way of making Pixar magic. However, he is not directing the sequel–instead, Kelsey Mann is directing. With Mann helming, Anxiety (Maya Hawke) is about to be front and center in Riley Andersen’s (Kensington Tallman) mind. After all, adolescence brings on its whole…

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem Is Pure TMNT Joy

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem might be another reboot but the film is pure TMNT joy for any fan of the franchise. My apologies for being way too late to watching the new film.

Anyway, it is now available to buy and rent on digital and streaming on Paramount+.…

Theater Camp – Sundance 2023

Theater Camp uses a mockumentary approach as its means of storytelling in this very hysterical music-driven comedy. I love a good mockumentary. There’s nothing like the intertitles drawing laughs almost as much as the rest of the film. It’s been a while since we had a really good mockumentary on the big screen. Is Christopher Guest still making them? Theater Camp could rival any of his mockumentary comedies! In all honesty, they made the film…

How It Ends is the existential comedy-drama (mostly comedy) filmed during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic that I didn’t know I needed.
