Trailer Tuesday - Planes, blimps and monstermobiles

This first one looks like your traditional action movie fodder, but there are heaps of famous people in there! Olympus has Fallen I hadn’t heard of this spin off from Cars that Disney are making, called Planes (or if I had heard of it, I’d forgotten!). It does what it says on the tin, and even has a bonus appearance from one David Croft! Lofty Crofty, the blimp! Amazing.

Monsters University - a prequel that might be good!

Monsters University - a prequel that might be good!

I turned my nose up when I heard about the Monsters Inc sequel idea. Not a sequel at all, but a prequel looking back at the monsters when they were at university together. Bah! What nonsense. What cashing in. But a teaser trailer is out, and I laughed out loud. Twice! I forgot how much I love Mike.

The Incredibles

The Incredibles

In preparation for watching The Incredibles 2, I realised I had to watch this one again. I had zero recollection of what had happened in the first movie, and as my initial summary says, this wasn’t a Pixar movie that I felt had rewatchable qualities. I still think that. To be honest, I just don’t know what all the fuss is about. It’s good, and entertaining enough, and Edna is still one of the best things in it. The concept is intriguing, but is the world of superheroes one we need more of at the moment?

I’ve seen this before but it was even better the second time round - whether that has to do with watching along with many others I don’t. Pixar movies are always so finely crafted, they are a real treat.

Monsters, Inc.

Monsters, Inc.

For some reason I feel like I should make excuses for watching this film, but hey, it’s not just for kids. Who doesn’t love a good bit of Pixar? Perhaps this film isn’t AS much fun as it was the last time I watched it, but it’s still a perfectly acceptable way to spend an hour and a half, Pixar certainly know what they’re doing creating multi-level films, especially with all the little things you only notice on multiple viewings.

WALL•E trailer The newest film from Disney Pixar… to be honest, it doesn’t grab me as much as I’d hoped. Showbiz - News - Beckhams preferred to Brown in Downing St - Digital Spy I pray that this isn’t true.

DVD Day #8

DVD Day #8

I was expecting Secret Window to be a slasher horror type, which is why I didn’t watch it with Mr C, and I was mystified as to why Johnny Depp would star in such a film. But of course, this is no such film. It’s actually a really intense, clever, psychological thriller with a huge twist at the end. I did not see it coming. Followed by The Incredibles which was up to Pixar’s usual brilliant standard and doesn’t really need me to sing it’s praises, it does that by itself.

Branching out

Branching out

There’s some very interesting work going on at Pixar: The Incredibles looks very good, and the cute lamb in Bounding is especially sweet. I’m glad that Pixar are splitting from Disney after the next couple of films, because it seems completely unfair that Disney get to do whatever they like - as long as they pay the right money. The right to make sequel after sequel even if Pixar don’t want them to is pushing their luck a bit.
