‘The Boxtrolls’ Opens At #3!

LAIKA’s latest offering (after Caroline and ParaNorman), The Boxtrolls, has opened up in the #3 spot in the weekend box office. The film about a boy who grows up with a bunch of trolls named the Boxtrolls, opened up with a $17 million gross in the US/Canada box office. Against a $60 million budget, the film may prove to be financially successful in the weeks to come. And with the reviews slightly leaning towards the positive side, that may happen sooner than later.

Have you seen the film? What did you think of it? If not, do you plan to see it?

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #4: The Lady with the Kids

Monsters, Inc. is my favorite Pixar film! I feel that the premise is super creative and nigh every aspect of the film is perfect!

Released in 2001, the film was about a fictional monster world in which the energy of the world was powered by human children’s screams. In the energy company, Monsters, Inc., trained scarer monsters would travel through scientifically advanced doors that allowed them to enter the human world and scare kids. The screams from the kids would generate power for the company and the monster world.

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #3: Mr. Konishi

Sigh…I really regret doing this Forgotten/Minor Characters project with Pixar films, not because it’s a task I find boring. On the contrary, it’s wonderful to re-watch these Pixar films as I’m personally a Disney fan, hence the Disney movies are the ones that I’ve seen over and over multiple times whereas most Pixar films I’ve only seen once or twice.

No, the reason I regret doing this project with the Pixar films is that it’s so hard finding forgotten/minor characters in these films. Pixar has mastered a way of creating a plethora of characters in their films while still making each character distinct, unique, and above all, memorable. This is an admirable quality except when you’re doing a project like this. But, that’s the way the cookie crumbles and the show must go on and (insert any other figure of speech/idiom/phrase that you deem fit).
