Film
Views The Angry Birds Movie

Angry Birds does a good job of taking the video game and creating a new, fuller world, giving the lifeless characters personalities. But they don’t sustain it and by the end all we get is a bonus level of the old game.

Retrospectives

Take a look back at the history of DreamWorks Animation with the first of a four-part series exploring its early years as a division in a new Hollywood studio.

Views Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War is fun, exciting, and a compelling drama, making it arguably one of best superhero films to date.

Video game movies may be the next big thing in Hollywood, but Ratchet & Clank is an inauspicious start. This will be a trend that will soon run out of lives if the studios don’t figure out a winning strategy.

Artists

The creators of The Dam Keeper found new challenges in adapting a Japanese book for their latest project.

Film
Views Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Holy letdown! The cast is great and the action is cool, but Dawn of Justice is bat-frustrating and not quite super enough.

Film
Views Only Yesterday

After 25 years, the beautiful and dramatic Only Yesterday finally gets a well-deserved English dub and North American release.

Blu-ray
Views Open Season: Scared Silly

Despite some laughs, Open Season: Scared Silly lacks the oddball charm–and heart–that made the original so much fun.

Composers
Views Into The Forest Of Enchantement – A Disney Musical Adventure at Disneyland Paris

Our exclusive interview with the creatives behind Disneyland Paris’ new show sheds light on creating entertainment for the parks!
