Animation: a Risky Business

Animation is a risky business, a company will spend 4-5 years on a film and if it doesn't have the Disney, Pixar, or Dreamworks logo, it normally fails in box office. So it may be even riskier to spend money to display these films in the Cannes Film Festival, with many being advertised throughout the market and in apartments and offices*. There may be cause for alarm as many animated movies start to fight for the market of family friendly. This field of film will always be looking fo...

Blackklansmen An Okay Undercover Story

  When the first scene begins to roll in Blackklansmen, I was surprised when, showing a scene from classic movie Gone With the Wind, a man comes in spouting out a white power message, but bloopers included. Then the title shows up after it with a specially funny subtitle that solidifies the fact that this was in fact going to be a comedy. Not that this wasn't told ahead of time, but I didn't know and it made for an interesting movie watching experience.  The tone was re...
