Pixar elite director Pete Doctor returns with another colourful yet human experience with Inside Out.

Review: Big Hero 6 (2D)

Big Hero 6‘s poster boy, the robotic Baymax, is the sole reason you need to see this film! Young tech prodigy Hiro Hamada and his brother build robots, one of which is called Baymax, designed to be the best in the field of medical care. But disaster hits the city of San Fransokyo when a…

Review: How to Train your Dragon 2 (3D)

Four years in the making and this sequel does what few ever manage; soaring as high as its predecessor! Life on the island of Berk has improved since Hiccup proved to the viking people that the native dragons could be friends, even pets. We see Hiccup’s impression on the village with everyone using gadgets and…

Review: How to Train your Dragon

2010 was a tough, tough year to rate films; so many excellent films, it remains the most memorable year for me. Inception won out, but even with Tron Legacy and Toy Story 3, How to Train your Dragon came a very, very tight second behind Christopher Nolan’s mind-warping thriller. Even now… I question that choice:…

Review: Sleeping Beauty

Possibly the definition of style-over-substance, I can barely explain why I love this film above all other Disney films… It almost ditches everything narrative to provide one of the greatest villains of all time. For me the film is hardwired: I love it. The story is as simple as they come. When Princess Aurora is…

Review: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

I really enjoyed the first Cloudy movie, and was sad that I never got around to seeing this sequel in the cinema. Now I can say that while it doesn’t quite live up to the quirky original, it is full of some of the most silly, most adorable food animals! Following on directly from the…

Review: The Lego Movie (3D)

Utter lunacy! As if progressing from such experiences as Scott Pilgrim and Wreck-It Ralph, The Lego Movie fully embraces its decision to simple exist that what we get is magical, insane, inspiring, childish and so unbelievably happy. I had a stupid, stupid grin on my face constantly. Emmett is a construction worker living in a…

Review: Frozen

There’s a lot to be said about Disney’s latest offering, some people saying it is the beginning of a new golden age for the studios, others saying its awful. But everyone agrees, the trailers are not to be trusted! Elsa, a princess of a far away kingdom, has the power to control and create snow…

Review: Vexille

From the creators of Appleseed comes an anime movie that has a lot of squandered potential. Ready for a strange way to find out about a movie? Some time ago, I discovered one of my favourite video games had a song by The Prodigy (one of my favourite bands), but I had trouble finding the…

Review: Monsters University

Monsters University provides fun and some unexpected moments, but it doesn’t feel like one Pixar’s best, more like one of their safer bets. As the animation studio’s first prequel, the film goes back to see the humble beginnings of Mike and Sully’s friendship from 2001’s Monsters Inc. (yes, it was twelve years ago) as they…
