Movie Review Flashback: ‘Toy Story 4’

With Toy Story 4 becoming available to watch on Disney Plus I figured it’d be best to revisit my review of the film. Enjoy!

If you’ve checked to see what Toy Story 4‘s rating among critics has been and glimpsed the 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes or the 7.9 out of 10 scores on IMDb let me assure you, it deserves those ratings.

Toy Story 3 was supposedly the end of the franchise that had started in 1995 and it was a great story as it transitioned little Andy from childhood to adulthood and the imminent but bittersweet breakup between Andy and his favorite toys. It was a tear-inducing “finale” that ended up not only winning Best Animated Film but was only the second animated movie to also be nominated for Best Picture.

It was perfectly written, it told a concise story, and it left people happy. No one was clamoring for a sequel like we wished for a sequel to The Incredibles but we were given one anyway and it was worth the wait. Continue reading Movie Review Flashback: ‘Toy Story 4’

Movie Trailer Flashback: Here’s the Teaser Trailer for ‘Soul’

Every year Disney/Pixar releases a new movie for children (and adults) to obsess over. In a few weeks, the highly-anticipated Frozen II will be hitting theaters and making a killing at the box-office. The film has been eagerly awaited for six years since its predecessor, Frozen, blew the minds of nearly everyone who watched it. And just a few months ago, we got to see the “final” installment in the Toy Story franchise with Toy Story 4, a heartfelt film that’s designed to pluck at your heartstrings. However, next year there are three more Disney/Pixar movies to look forward to. OnwardSoul, and Raya and the Last Dragon. A few days ago the teaser trailer for Soul was released and of course, I watched it. Here it is.

Soul is heavily reminding me of Inside Out but I have hope that it will be better than Inside Out was. I don’t know, I just wasn’t a fan of the film, Inside Out. When I get Disney+ next week I’ll definitely give it another chance because maybe there was something that I was missing last time that I’ll get this time but one thing’s for certain, Soul is going to be good (and will very likely bring many tears to viewers’ eyes.)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a remarkable day.

‘Ratatouille’ Is Actually Pretty Good!

A little over a decade ago my sister and I watched Ratatouille for the first time. We didn’t like it that much. And yet, thanks to Disney+, we got to watch it and I was pleasantly surprised.

As a child, some of the film’s themes were a bit too mature for me to understand and I ended up not being able to follow the story that well or feel any emotional connection to it. But, as a young adult, the movie shined in ways I wasn’t expecting.

No, this isn’t one of those Pixar movies that’ll make you cry your eyes out (well, at least it didn’t make me cry) but it did touch my heart with a touching storyline that left me laughing and riveted through its entirety.

Unsurprisingly, this is yet another Pixar hit.

I’m giving this movie 91 out of 100 4 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Watching ‘A Bug’s Life’ For the First Time

One of the best things about Disney+ is discovering new movies or television shows to enjoy. As a child, one of my favorite films was Antz so A Bug’s Life has always been a film I’ve wanted to see. My sister and I finally watched it the other evening and I LOVED it.

I’m a Pixar fan. This movie reiterated why.

It was so funny, so full of life, packed full of lovable and sometimes terrifying characters, and by the conclusion, I was beaming with joy.

A Bug’s Life was far better than I expected and a true testament to great and engaging storytelling.

I’m giving this movie 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It’s not perfect but it’s darn-near close to being an impeccable movie.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
