We all have dreams growing up as children. For me, I always wanted to be a major league baseball player. However, our life’s purpose eventually collides with our dreams. Sometimes, children’s dreams mesh with life’s purpose. But for most people (like myself), our lives take another direction as we grow up. This isn’t a bad thing however, as we are meant to live every minute by making the most of it. That, among other things, is the purpose of life and the message Pixar’s Soul gives audiences. Dealing with thematic elements for people of all ages, Soul takes us on a spiritual journey that is both beautiful and touching, which makes for one of the year’s best movies. The end results will differ for kids and adults, but Pixar veteran director Pete Doctor delivers another movie that is in the top half of Pixar’s entire catalogue.
2017 certainly has been a down year for animated movies. While there have been a number of animated movies released throughout the year, quantity has far outweighed quality. As such, it’s certainly shown in diminishing box office numbers for almost all the animated movies released this year (minus Despicable Me 3). Luckily however, as far as animated movies are concerned, 2017 is going out on a high note with Coco, the latest offering from Pixar Studios. After three straight lower caliber movies (The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, Cars 3) from the well-respected animation studio, Coco is more of what we’ve come to expect from Pixar over the years. Thanks to the movie’s uniquely told story, respect to culture, beautiful animation, and catchy, original music, Coco is another noteworthy winner from Pixar.
The 73rd Annual Golden Globes will take place January 10th, 8 PM ET live on NBC. I’ve decided to try and predict this year’s winners…. Check out my predictions right here. Please note: I’m probably wrong. Big time.
What a year it’s been for movies. I’ve always given my opinion on movies, to anyone who’ll listen, but this year I’ve seen more movies than ever before. I think the very fact that I saw so many made me change the way I look at them. I’d like to give you what I think was the most remarkable movies of 2015.
Think of it as my very own award show. Only movies I’ve reviewed are eligible for this. That way I know what I’m talking about and also if you’re curious you can go see what I thought in depth. I’ll give you a small list of movies in each category, you see if you can guess which one I think wins.
I cannot say enough good things about this movie. I knew going in that I was going to like it, of course – all a movie has to do for my approval is make it funny, dial the colors up to 11 and I’m anyone’s. But I was surprised by how much I liked it, mostly because it felt like my story.
