We don’t deserve dogs. Lovable, loyal companions that want nothing more than to be by our side (and eat our food), dogs are too good for this cruel, stupid world. While we don’t deserve dogs, dogs definitely don’t deserve movies like A Dog’s Journey, the weepy, manipulative, upsetting sequel to the surprise hit A Dog’s Purpose. Once again, audiences will be forced to watch dog after dog roll over and play dead, all in the name of telling some sort of half-assed spiritual story about reincarnation. Are the pups on screen cute? They sure are. Is that enough to make this movie worth seeing? Absolutely not.

The titular birds and their pig enemies discover an icy island, which we became very well acquainted with in the teaser trailer that introduced us to Leslie Jones as a purple-feathered fowl who is sick of her chilly surroundings. Somehow her dissatisfaction with home has led to threatening the nearby angry birds and the dastardly green pigs with a frigid weapon that could destroy their own islands. Can the birds and pigs overcome their differences in order to survive? Read More »
Hollywood has been sleeping on a Rip Van Winkle movie, but it looks like they’re about to get a wake up call.

After being off the air for 17 years, The Muppets attempted a television comeback on ABC in 2015. The series, titled The Muppets, was a documentary-style workplace comedy along the lines of The Office about the Muppets working on a late night program starring Miss Piggy.

Nearly a full year ago, we learned that Disney was interested in reviving The Muppets for a new series on the upcoming streaming service Disney+. Now some details on who’s developing the show have come to light, and it’s a crew who already has a comfortable relationship with The House of Mouse. Could this be the big 2019 surprise that Kermit was teasing recently? Read More »

There’s an endless number of zombie movies out there. So if you’re going to tackle this particular horror subgenre, you better have something unique to bring to the table.

But it’s blended it with a 1980s-inspired zombie invasion, and the result is a bloody laugh riot called Little Monsters. Read More »
A boy genius is on his way to fill the hole that a certain boy wizard left seven years ago. Though Artemis Fowl, based on the popular series of the same name by Eoin Colfer, has long deserved a big-screen adaptation in its own right.
The newest live-action film from Disney and Murder on the Orient Express director Kenneth Branagh, Artemis Fowl is a magical urban fantasy that follows a 12-year-old Irish boy genius who hatches an impossible scheme: to kidnap a fairy and ransom it for gold. But this is more than just a childish flight of fancy, the titular Artemis has discovered a sprawling world of fairies, leprechauns (or rather, LEPrecons), and tech-savvy centaurs that could aid him in his grand scheme for wealth and family.
