FW MOVIE PICK: GHOST IN THE SHELL

Clearly Hollywood hasn’t learned their lesson with Dragon Ball Evolution (which still pisses me off!), but on the other this anime adaptation of a beloved sci-fi animated/manga source material at least tries! The premise and its characters are just not as compelling or interesting as their anime counterparts. They even try to inject japan culture […]

FW MOVIE PICK: DESPICABLE ME 3

After the Minion overload we had gotten from the spin-off movie, it really doesn’t come as much as a surprise the characters have taken the backseat with this third entry! The a story centered on a 1980’s themed villain and finding out you have a long lost brother (also played by Steve Carell), this installment […]

FW MOVIE PICK: SING

You know its odd that we ended up with two anthropomorphic talking animal animated movies in the same year, but the distinction with this one is the singing! The movie really lives up to its title treating us o an amazing voice cast and stellar musical numbers centering different characters. I wouldn’t really rank it […]

FW MOVIE PICK: MINIONS

With the breakout characters from the Despicable Me franchise practically taking over everything from merchandise to billboards, giving them their own spin-off comes to no surprise! The craziness that is the Minions can be hilarious at times, but you can’t help but feel like they can’t carry their own movie very well. And the villain […]

FW MOVIE PICK: DESPICABLE ME 2

With Despicable Me being a huge hit, a sequel would be a no-brainer and the question remains on how to continue the franchise!? By giving Gru a partner named Lucy played by the always infectious Kirsten Wiig. Also giving the same laugh out loud thrills we’d come to expect from the Minions and giving the […]

FW MOVIE PICK: HOP

You know there is a reason why nobody has ever made a holiday movie centered on Easter and this live-action/animated movie is further proof of that! I can’t help but feel like gorgeous movie should have been completely animated. Basically a tale about the Easter Bunny wanting to be a Drummer is hardly anything special, […]

FW MOVIE PICK: DESPICABLE ME

Well here it is the movie that launched the successful Illumination Entertainment Animation Company and they surely didn’t disappoint! Aside from giving us this century new animated icons that are the hysterical Minions, it also provides us a heartfelt story about a villain finding redemption after adopting three girls. Steve Carell shines as Gru and […]

FW MOVIE PICK: ELEKTRA

Honestly I didn’t even think this movie would even exist at all, but considering the Marvel Anti-Heroine’s colorful history and the fact she was killed off at the end of Daredevil (2003), I guess this spin-off wouldn’t come as a surprise. Whitewashing aside, Jennifer Garner does give it her all in this role and changing […]
