Zootopia reviews

Walt Disney Animation Studios has been on a roll in recent years, with a list of films that includes Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, Big Hero 6, Frozen and the short films Feast and Paperman. Many people would say that the Burbank-based animation studio has been turning out more consistently great films than their Emmerville brother Pixar. Their latest film Zootopia from directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore (Bolt, Tangled) is set to hit theaters in the US in March 2016, and the first trade reviews have begun to hit online as the film is being released early in international markets.

Does Disney Animation have another hit on their hands or will this be their Good Dinosaur? Find out as we take a look at the early Zootopia reviews through spoiler-free excerpts, after the jump.

xxx 3 donnie yen

At first, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage seemed like a pipe dream, a thing Vin Diesel would bring up in interviews as part of a desperate ploy to have a wingless angel assigned to his case. And now it’s actually filming with director D.J. Caruso at the helm and a genuinely bizarre ensemble of actors filling out the space not taken up by Diesel-bulk. However, it look like one of the previously announced actors won’t be in the film after all.

Jet Li has apparently dropped out of the latest XXX film, but Donnie Yen has quickly taken his place. Let’s get really honest for a second: the production has traded up here.

The Boss Red-Band Trailer

Melissa McCarthy may not be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, to the endless disappointment of Gilmore Girls fans, but don’t worry — she’s got plenty of other stuff to keep her busy in the coming months. Not only will she appear as one of the new fab four in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, she’s also starring in The Boss, which reunites her with her Tammy director (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone.

McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a hotshot CEO whose extravagant lifestyle comes crashing down when she’s arrested for insider trading. She emerges from prison disgraced and discouraged, but finds an unlikely path back to the top in the form of Girl Scout cookies. Or rather, “Darnell’s Darlings Brownies.” Kristen Bell plays Michelle’s reluctant business partner, and Peter Dinklage shows up as… unclear, but the role involves him wielding a sword. Watch The Boss red-band trailer after the jump.  Read More »

New Powerpuff Girls

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girl. But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction: CHEMICAL X. Thus The Powerpuff Girls were… reborn!

You can have your Fuller House and your Gilmore Girls revival, but personally, I’m way more excited about seeing the return of the pint-sized, animated superheroes known as the Powerpuff Girls. The animated series gets a bit of a reboot this April on Cartoon Network, but when you see the first footage from this new Powerpuff Girls series, you’ll see that not much has changed, and that’s a good thing. Check it out! Read More »

Roadies Trailer

It’s no secret that pretty much the entire /Film crew has undying love for Almost Famous. Maybe it’s because of the similarities between covering the world of music and covering the world of film and television, or maybe it’s just because it’s a damn good coming-of-age tale. No matter what the reason, I love it. Therefore, I’m happy to see director Cameron Crowe‘s first television endeavor taking him back behind the scenes of rock and roll with a new Showtime series called Roadies.

Not unlike Almost Famous, the show follows around a fictional band, but it’s the crew who gets the concerts ready that takes the spotlight. They tour around the United States, creating an unconventional family-like bond with all the good and bad that comes with living each other on the road for months at a time. Get a taste of what you can expect with the first Roadies trailer below. Read More »

master of none season 2

Netflix has the habit of renewing their shows as fast as possible, announcing new seasons the Monday after a new batch of episodes has dropped. In the case of House of Cards, they renewed their flagship series for a fifth season weeks before season four dropped. Since Netflix is in the business of you watching their original content as fast as possible, they have developed the habit of letting everyone know as soon as possible that yes, there will soon be new episodes for you to binge.

So it’s a little weird that it took this long Master of None season 2 to officially get put in the pipeline, which makes you wonder if series star, co-creator, and occasional writer/director Aziz Ansari deliberately pushed pause to recharge his batteries. In any case, Ansari has revealed that a new season will arrive in 2017, which is excellent news for anyone who likes good things.
