Film
Views World of Tomorrow

A fascinating short film about life that is both simple and complex.

Views Kung Fu Panda 3

The martial arts trilogy has a satisfying conclusion, warm, funny, and with a heart as big as its panda hero’s tummy.

The Rotoscopers

Simply unbearable.

The Rotoscopers

Artists
Views Inside Animation Supervisor Victor Navone’s mind

Our exclusive interview spotlights one of the key talents behind Pixar’s masterpiece Inside Out.

Film
Views The Good Dinosaur

There is nothing terribly wrong with The Good Dinosaur — if you consider it a children’s movie. But for the rest of us expecting something meteor meatier from Pixar, the story here is just too ordinary and uninspired.

Blu-ray
Views Toy Story That Time Forgot

The traditions of Toy Story are put aside for what is essentially an overlong imaginary sequence (without anyone imagining). It’s fun while it lasts but may easily end up being forgotten.

The Rotoscopers
Views Animation Addicts Podcast #108: The Peanuts Movie – Are There Peanuts Brand Peanuts?

The Rotoscopers jump into the world of Charles Schulz for Blue Sky Studios’ 2015 animated film The Peanuts Movie.

Film
Views Hotel Transylvania 2

While not as original or surprising as the first film, Hotel Transylvania 2 still touches the heart-strings and tickles the funny-bone. Kids will love it and adults won’t die of boredom either.

DVD
Views Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles

The Force is fun with this one, providing cheeky Robot Chicken-style humor that Star Wars fans of all ages should find hilarious.

Blu-ray
Views Star Wars – Rebels: Complete Season One

Bridging the gap between the film trilogies, Rebels’ initial season inches its way towards being epic, setting up what promises to be an even stronger second season.

News

DreamWorks' Kung Fu Panda 3 opens today in 3,955 theatres according to Box Office Mojo. The film is doing well with the critics, with a 79% at Rotten Tomatoes. Their critical consensus: "Kung Fu Panda 3 boasts the requisite visual splendor, but like its rotund protagonist, this sequel's narrative is also surprisingly nimble, adding up to animated fun for the whole family". It should easily take the weekend crown, with BOM projecting a $52.4 million take, while Box Office Prophets predicts a lower but still weekend topping $38.4 million.
