In my opinion, Pixar has only made one bad film – The Good Dinosaur (and even that one I gave three hats to). The rest of their catalog ranges from just above average to priceless gems, and 2003’s Finding Nemo is undeniably one of their better entries. Thirteen years ( o_O ) later we are presented with the next chapter. Is it a watered down cash grab, or a worthy sequel?

“Saving the world takes a little Hart and a big Johnson.” I don’t care if Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were cast solely so that the marketing team could use that genius tagline for this action comedy.

Despite lackluster reviews, 2010’s Alice in Wonderland made a boatload of money so it’s little surprise that eventually a sequel would make its way to the big screen.
Reminding us that it has been a while since we’ve seen a new installment of that other Depp powered franchise, Through The Looking Glass starts out on the high seas with a swashbuckling escape from pirates with Alice (Mia Wasikowska) at the helm.
Hatter Jack Sparrow would be proud. Unfortunately once we go from the real world to Underland, the movie gets significantly less fun and interesting. I’m pretty sure it should be the other way around. Continue reading Review – Alice Through the Looking Glass
At this point, does this movie even need an introduction?

It’s a scenario that only makes sense in movieland, or perhaps somewhere on Reddit. Two unassuming cousins – portrayed by dynamic comedy duo Key and Peele in their first big screen adventure – find themselves in the middle of a gang’s turf war, all because of a little kitten named Keanu.
