The English actor, Albert Finney, has sadly passed away at the age of 82! Mr. Finney (1936-2019) was most famous for his roles in Tom Jones, Scrooge, Annie, Big Fish, Skyfall, and my favorite performance of his in one of my favorite films, Murder on the Orient Express!
In terms of animation, he voiced the character of Mr. Everglot in Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.
He shall be missed!
Smallfoot was a film that I knew existed, but not much else. I knew it was made by Warner Animation Group, the same division that brought us The Lego Movie, and I knew that it had something to do with yetis, but other than that, I didn’t know what to expect. I can safely say that I was pleasantly surprised after viewing it.
(There will be mild spoilers below.)

It’s about time for another Top 13 list! In preparation for the February U.S. release of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, I decided to rewatch all of the DreamWorks Animation films. DreamWorks Animation, to me, is hit-or-miss, so sometimes it was quite a challenge watching these films. But other times, I quite enjoyed watching these films! Below, I have listed my top 13 favorite DreamWorks Animation films. A few points to keep in mind:
1) This is my personal list of which ones I liked best; it’s not necessarily which ones I think are the best made films. Also this is my list as of now; if you ask me again in the future, this list may change due to personal fluctuations.
2) For personal religious reasons, I haven’t seen The Prince of Egypt nor do I choose to. So don’t be surprised when you see it missing from this list! I’m sure it’s a wonderful film, but I choose not to watch it.
3) I also haven’t seen Joseph: King of Dreams both for personal religious reasons as stated above as well as because it’s a direct-to-video film and I don’t want to compare it alongside the theatrical films.
Now that that’s taken care of, here are my top 13! Hope you enjoy!

I don’t usually post personal stuff on this blog, but just wanted to let you all know that I (FINALLY) graduated college on Friday! And I celebrated at EPCOT yesterday!
Are any of you college graduates as well? What major did you study? Or if you’re not a college graduate, do you plan to be? If so, what major would you like to study? Let me know in the comments!
Pixar has announced that the title of their March 6, 2020 release will be Onward. Taking place in “a suburban fantasy world”, the film will be about two teenage elf brothers “who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.” The film will be directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and feature the voice talents of Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Octavia Spencer.

Are you excited for this film? I personally am! It’s always interesting to see a new original idea from Pixar and I’m pleased with the voice cast.
