Pixar Depression

If you’ve seen Pixar‘s latest film Inside Out, then you likely felt a swell of all the feels a few times throughout the movie. And while it’s easy for some of us to get caught up in the emotions of the film (both as feelings and as characters scrambling on the big screen), there are those who may not be as moved by the struggles 11-year old Riley has in the movie.

A clever new video has surfaced online called Pixar Depression, presented as if it were a prescription commercial for some kind of anti-depressant. In reality, what it does is poke fun at the hardships presented in the movie by pointing out that Riley just has a case of first world problems. Watch Pixar Depression after the jump! Read More »

Disney Star Wars Weekend 2012 7

We all knew that Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando Florida is undergoing a major reworking. The Sorcerer’s hat has been removed, the studio tour has been shut down, The Art of Animation will be closing, and there are many rumors about what is yet to change in the movie-themed Disney-owned amusement park.

Now we hear that the Disney board may have approved a $3 billion overhaul of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which could eventually include a larger Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Pixar presence. Details after the jump.

peter pan's flight new effects

Disney has been very busy refurbishing some of their older attractions. Last year Disney added new effects to Big Thunder Mountain, Alice in Wonderland and the Indiana Jones Adventure. This year already Disney has revamped a bunch of attractions, adding the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion as well as adding new effects and an awesome new animatronic Yeti to Matterhorn (too bad the new vehicles kill your butt).

And the newest attraction to get refurbishment is Peter Pan’s Flight, one of my favorite rides in classic Fantasyland — I just love suspended dark ride vehicles, which is one of the reasons I love the Universal Studios’ ET Adventure ride.  Walt Disney Imagineering has released a video showcasing the new additions to the attraction, giving us a behind the scenes peek into the thought and work that went into the new effects. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

Rick and Morty S2 trailer

With robots, parallel universes, technology run dangerously rampant, and an excellent group of five characters to watch as things get weird, the first season of Rick and Morty was one of the best science fiction shows on TV. Created by Justin Roiland (who voices both lead characters) and Dan Harmon, the series is like a super-twisted version of Back to the Future in which Doc is drunk, cocky, and astonishingly brilliant, and Marty is a shy and cautious kid.

With all that established, I’m hoping the second season will be the best sci-fi show on TV, full stop. The first big Rick and Morty S2 trailer is here, and you can watch below to see how crazy things might get. Read More »

Sound of Inside Out

While there’s plenty of sound design, editing and recording that has to be done for live-action movies, the job seems a little more difficult when it comes to feature-length animated films. Every single sound you hear has to be manufactured for the film. And that job gets exponentially harder when you have to give sound to a location you’ve thought about, but have never been to, like the inside of an 11-year old girl’s mind.

That’s the challenge that faced director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera and supervising sound editor Shannon Mills from Skywalker Sound with Pixar’s latest film Inside Out. And now SoundWorks Collection dives into how the sounds of the movie were created, and as you would expect, it’s very fascinating. Learn about the sound of Inside Out after the jump! Read More »

Up house demolished

The first 10 minutes of Pixar Animation‘s movie Up are enough to make anyone cry, no matter what age or how tough you are. And now we have another potentially sad story with links to the Pixar movie

You might remember back in 2006 there was the real-life story of an old woman named Edith Macefield who refused a $1 million offer for her 1,000-square-foot house. An investment company was developing a 131,000-square-foot retail center in the area and wanted to tear down her house to use the entire area for their building. But since she refused to sell, they built the entire building around her house (as seen above). But now that house may end up being demolished anyway. Find out if we’ll see the Up house demolished after the jump. Read More »

bojack horseman s2 trailer

The Netflix series BoJack Horseman has a goofy comic concept: Will Arnett voices a drunk, washed-up actor who is also a horse. And while the show’s first season was often pretty goofy, it also turned out to be a brutally funny and frequently very dark evisceration of celebrity culture, media, and many other aspects of modern life. It also works well as a full season of interconnected stories — the show isn’t just a string of jokes, but a character piece that builds some involving arcs.

Now there’s a trailer for the second season. Naturally it focuses more on quick jokes than any deeper stuff, but it’s still great. Check out the BoJack Horseman S2 trailer below. Read More »
