||Animated Views’ 2017 Animated Movie Guide
It’s our first ever Movie Guide, looking at every major animated movie coming your way in 2017. Get set for Lego Batman, more Cars, Gru, and Alec Baldwin as a talking baby!
One of Disney’s biggest surprises of the year is this wonderfully good-natured gem, a mighty fine family film that stands out from all the other talking animals and fish currently out there. Just lovely.
Spielberg directs a rare misfire that draws on Roald Dahl’s book, Amblin production values and Disney magic, but disappointingly fails to deliver on all lackluster counts.
||The Secret Life Of Pets
Illumination’s latest finally breaks away from those Minions, with a less distinctive movie that still delivers laughs even if it gets close to being lost in the animal comedy fray.
||Kubo And The Two Strings
Laika steps up stop-motion, and largely western animation in general, with this beautiful and deeply heartfelt tale, nicely showcased on this disc.
Disney knows their way around princess movies. But while Moana is very beautiful and very entertaining, who knows how far they could have gone if they’d taken a few more risks instead of playing it safe.
||2016 CTN Animation Expo Exclusive
An exclusive look at one of the biggest animation conventions, featuring live demonstrations from animators Andreas Deja, James Lopez, and Russ Edmonds.
Pixar’s Nemo sequel is a movie in search of a plot and, despite huge audience approval, one just doesn’t get the feeling the filmmakers were really invested in what amounts to being a major creative disappointment.
||2016 Los Angeles Comic Con Exclusive
An exclusive recap of the Stan Lee-sponsored Con, highlighting 75 years of Wonder Woman, 25 years of Darkwing Duck, and a celebration of Pinky and the Brain.
Its hairy heroes and pop tunes won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those in the mood for cheery fun, Trolls provides plenty of charms.
||Adventure Time: The Complete Sixth Season
Finn finds his newly found father to be a crushing disappointment, Gunter gets an origin, and lots of crazy stuff happens in the latest run of Cartoon Network’s insane hit.
||Back In Time
Back In Time strives to entertain with stories of making Back To The Future and the fan community that has built up around the trilogy, but you’ll end up using your remote to travel forward and save a few minutes.
Storks is the kind of movie you’ll want to watch over and over. With great animation, top-notch voice talent, an engaging story, and incredible humor, this film delivers.
||The Walt Disney Studios: A Lot To Remember
Becky Cline and Steven Clark prove there is a lot to remember about the Walt Disney Studios, and all of it worthy of discovering or revisiting in this lavish new book.
||The Jungle Book
A terrific audio-visual presentation, commentary and documentary bolster this disc debut for Disney’s triumphant re-do, though it feels more might come in a promised 3D edition.
