DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #10: The Chameleon Stenographer

7 Comments

In 2005, DreamWorks Animation released the first film of what would be their next big franchise, Madagascar. I’ve made it clear before that I’m not a fan of these films (with the exception of the third one) and after re-watching this one, my opinion is still the same.

Dreamworks Animation’s 3rd film of 2014, Penguins of Madagascar, opened in 2nd place in the weekend box office. Grossing a quite sub-par 5-day amount of $36 million, I wonder if the film will end up being even a minor hit.

Have you seen the film? If so, what did you think of it?

My Thoughts: MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE’S MOST WANTED (2012)

So I’ve finally seen this film that (hopefully) ends the “Madagascar” franchise with a trilogy! I was never a fan of the “Madagascar” franchise and never thought much of the other two movies! So the fact that I actually LIKE this movie is somewhat of a shocker! And although I do like it, I also think that it’s not a great movie nor is it perfect. So with that in mind, let’s take a deeper look into this movie and my thoughts regarding it. More

21 Animated Films Submitted for Oscars Consideration

2 Comments

The Oscars time is soon to come upon us! The 85th Academy Awards are scheduled to be held on February 24, 2013. So, naturally it’s only likely that films are soon to be submitted for consideration and voting by the Academy to be included in the hallowed nominations list.

And one category to have its contenders decided is the “Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.” 21 animated feature films from around the world have been submitted and with that amount, we may have up to 5 of them battling for the trophy. We’ll have to wait until January 10, 2013 to discover which 5 they’ll be, but let’s take a look at the 21 films submitted. Just to let you know, I have not yet seen many of these films, so my descriptions will be based on available plot summaries:

1) Adventures in Zambezia

Also known as Zambezia, we see that this computer-animated film was made in South Africa; actually we’ll see that a few of these films are from outside the USA. In this film, a young falcon leaves his home in the desert to discover action and adventure in the city of Zambezia.

2) Brave

Of course we have Disney-Pixar’s entry in the competition in which a young Scottish princess defies a custom and brings upon her kingdom a curse; one that she’ll have to muster up her bravery to undo. 

3) Delhi Safari

We get to one of India’s 2 entries in this category, this one being the first Indian stereoscopic 3D animated film. In this film, a monkey, bear, leopards, and other forest animals decide to go to the Indian Parliament and protest against the people’s destruction of their habitats and homes.
