The Pod Generation entered the 2023 Sundance Film Festival as an award winner but the sci-fi film falls short in its execution. I needed over a week after the premiere to think about my feelings on the film. The more that I think about it, the more I end up not liking it.

Chiwetel Ejiofor’s performance received a few…"Kinky Boots Arrives On Blu-ray For The First Time"

The Lion King brings one of Disney’s most beloved animated films to life in visually stunning photo-realistic CGI adaptation. I’ve kept a close eye since Disney decided to update their library in a contemporary manner. I remember how impressed I was with The Jungle Book‘s Oscar-winning visual effects in 2016. Where these two Jon Favreau-directed films differ are that there is no motion-capture performances in The Lion King. It would have surely made a difference…"The Lion King Is My Favorite Film This Year"
