    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Please, I beg you, go watch this short at www.youtube.com/watch?1&v=AZS5cgybKcI right now. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

    Kitbull is one of the best shorts ever to be associated with Pixar without a doubt. Its stylized animation is creative and adorable, its two lead characters are incredibly likable, the story is easy to follow and engaging without a single line of dialogue in sight, and the short itself is incredibly gutsy. It covers animal abuse in a way that…

    K-12

    ★★

    This is going to be a really weird movie to review because of the fact that this film also contains the entirety of the K-12 album, so I think this review is going to be a combination review of both the album and the movie. Also, as you can see from the rating, I'm not going to cut this movie slack just because it's made by an artist I really love. Just like Guava Island, if this film is trying…

    Saving Grace

    ★★★★

    It feels good to be back reviewing a movie again. I'm currently reviewing this film on September 7. I didn't get the chance to write my review for this movie yesterday, so here I am talking about it now.

    I'm gonna be completely honest, when I saw the title and the trailer, I thought this movie was going to primarily focus on the main character dealing with grief and how her experiences with it shape her as a person. That's…

    ★★★★★

    Along with watching Cendrillon, RowanHarper recommended that I watch this short film of Georges Melies, and I am so glad I did. This short's only a minute long, but it's a truly incredible minute spent and still holds up remarkably well for being almost 125 years old. This is the perfect example of a concept film; it doesn't have a specific storyline, it just wants to play around with a short concept and execute it as uniquely as possible. This…

    Cinderella

    ★★★★

    Well, I'm finally back with a review. It's not a full-on film review, but hopefully this will tide you over until I finally get the chance to watch another movie. There seem to be a couple different versions of this short on YouTube alone, including a 24 minute one with no music, but if you want to watch the version I watched, you can find it at www.youtube.com/watch?v=0caKk_42n7A.

    After watching Hugo thanks to the request of my friend and fellow…

    The Lion King

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I'm honestly really not sure how to rate this movie. If you take it as a film on its own merit without having seen the original film, it's fine, I suppose. The CGI is legitimately impressive, almost photorealistic, and almost guaranteed to win an Oscar for Best Visual Effects, which I personally have mixed feelings about. The voice acting is good, for the most part, but the dialogue is incredibly clunky. A lot of it feels really one-note and expositional,…

    The Lion King

    ★★★★½

    Yes, I am, in fact, planning on seeing the "live-action" remake later today, so I wanted to watch the original film once again before doing that. This film has a really important nostalgic connection with me. This, Finding Nemo, and Shrek are the first films I remember ever watching, and I remember really enjoying this film as a kid. I think at about 8 years old, I stopped watching it for a couple of years, and when I saw it…

  • Hugo

    Hugo

    ★★★★★

    I think this is going to be my final film review of the summer. If I watch another film tonight, great, but if not, this is my final film of what is pretty much my final summer vacation. Because school is starting up again, I will not be watching movies as frequently as I have been, but don't you worry. I am still going to be reviewing every single movie I watch, I just won't be able to watch as…

    Bring the Soul: The Movie

    ★★★★

    I saw this movie as a birthday favor for my best friend. I wouldn't have normally seen it, but she absolutely adores BTS and wanted to see this movie, preferably with someone else. I've never really been a big fan of BTS, mostly because this friend in question constantly talks about them and praises their music, their dancing, and their work ethic all the time. I've acknowledged they are a very talented group, but I think I just heard about…

    The fact that buying Toy Story 3 on Blu-ray also allows me to own this gem of a short film is just an added bonus to me. Seeing this on YouTube for the first time felt slightly dirty to me, so the fact that I now own it just feels incredible. I think this is the best combination of short film to film I've seen from Pixar, to be completely honest, because of how close both of these are in…

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The only reason I decided to check this film out at all was because of this video-- www.youtube.com/watch?v=APwyKS9dRk4-- that mentioned that this short was actually nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. This film... was nominated... for an Academy Award. I immediately had to check this film out, and to be completely honest, if there were any short on the Internet with this kind of humor in it that should be nominated for an Academy Award, I…

  • Deadpool: No Good Deed

    Deadpool: No Good Deed

    ★★★★½

    Am I overpraising this? Possibly. But do I think this short delivered in about the best way it possibly could? You betcha. Yes, this is an advertisement for Deadpool 2, but I don't think the creators of this short half-assed this one. The black comedy in this short is executed perfectly and Ryan Reynolds proves once again that he is the perfect choice for the character of Deadpool. I'm gonna be completely honest and say that I haven't seen the…
