11 Comments

Once again, it’s time to take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Many of us felt that 2017 wasn’t a great year for animation (at least, not for mainstream animation), so we’re hoping that 2018 can make up for it!

Check out my list below of the upcoming theatrical animated films set for release next year! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US/Canada release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
Cars 3
Coco
Despicable Me 3
The Boss Baby

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE-INDEPENDENT

In This Corner of the World
Loving Vincent
Napping Princess
The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales
The Breadwinner

BEST ANIMATED SHORT SUBJECT

Dear Basketball
Hedgehog’s Home

Nick Kroll (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie)
Anthony Gonzalez (Coco)
Saara Chaudry (The Breadwinner)
Laara Sadiq (The Breadwinner)
Zach Galifianakis (The LEGO Batman Movie)

What do you all think of the nominees? I’m really surprised that The LEGO Batman Movie didn’t get a nomination for Best Animated Feature whilst The Boss Baby did! Also, was Zach Galifianakis’ voicework as the Joker really THAT good to warrant a Best Voice Acting nomination? Glad to see The Breadwinner, The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales, and Dear Basketball getting love though!

My Thoughts: THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS (2016)

12 Comments

thesecretlifeofpets

When the trailer for Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets was released, I was honestly surprised as to how positive/optimistic many people seemed to be towards it. Almost everyone I knew said that the film looked cute or funny or had an interesting premise or was a film that they were looking forward to seeing. I, on the other hand, seemed to be in the minority opinion!

I thought the trailer seemed kinda stupid. It seemed to be pushing the ubiquitous “funny jokes for kids” trope that we see in a lot of animation and I didn’t really find any of the jokes funny. The plot seemed very reminiscent of past films such as Toy Story and it seemed that the only reason Kevin Hart, Louis C.K. and Eric Stonestreet were cast as voices were just to have popular celebrities’ names attached to the film. Heck, I’m not even a “pets” person, so I couldn’t even identify with that aspect of the film that many pet owners seemed to readily identify with! I was much more looking forward to Illumination Entertainment’s Sing than this film.

74%? Really? This movie was THAT good?

Eventually, I ended up watching this film. Was I as disappointed as I thought I was going to be? Or was I surprisingly impressed? Read on to find out what I thought of The Secret Life of Pets.

By the way, there will be some SPOILERS!

‘Despicable Me 3’ Trailer Debuts!

6 Comments

Regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of the Despicable Me franchise, Illumination Entertainment is making a 3rd film! And the first trailer for Despicable Me 3 has recently debuted!

From what I see in the trailer, I feel that this film will be….okay, at best, something along the lines of Despicable Me 2 quality. The villain seems quite annoying and I know I’m alone in this, but I miss the Minions’ presence in the trailer. (Oh, and I love Gru’s singing voice!) Hopefully the film (which is set to be released on June 30, 2017) will exceed my expectations!

What do you all think of the trailer? Are you interested in a 3rd Despicable Me film? Let me know in the comments below!
