Hi Bryan Here….

We wrote about Pixar’s new film ‘Brave a while ago which you can find here and see some screen shots.  The teaser trailer should be in front of ‘Cars 2’.  Poster looks great.  What do you think?

EW describes the film as:

Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest — and serving as comic relief — are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).”

Here’s A Peak At Pixar’s New Film, “Brave”!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 28th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

While I love every Pixar film thus far, I find myself having a hard time getting really amped up for Cars 2.  Don’t get me wrong, I am excited for Cars 2, but I am not that enthused about it.  But for Pixar’s next film which is called “Brave”, I am whole heartedly excited and much thrilled about their new story of a dark fairy tale.

Hi Bryan Here…

I have said it before and I will say it again.  Pixar is such a magical place and one of the best film companies on the planet.  Everything they have done is GOLD.  Their ability to mix humor and drama and all emotions is perfect.  They have done time and time again which so many filmmakers have strived to do but have failed.  Which is make fils that appeal to everyone of all race, color, and creed.  Now this short film from Pixar features many of the talented people who work at Pixar who  are gay.  They are reaching out to the young kids out in the world about the tremendous pressures about their sexual identity with the simple message of “It Gets Better!”

Pixar’s New Film “Cars 2” Has A Trailer….

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2010

I love all of the Pixar films.  While I was hoping for a new original movie, a sequel to Cars isn’t bad either.  This is my least favorite of all the Pixar films, but that said it is top notch.  None of the Pixar films are bad, this is just the one that is last on my list.

The trailer looks good though, and looks like it will be hilarious.  Looking forward as always to seeing work from PIXAR.

Enjoy the trailer.

Toy Story 4 – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 20th, 2019

The film that started it all was Toy Story. Pixar became a household name in 1995 with the release of their first feature film and changed the way animated movies were made and told. Pixar has since become a box office cash cow almost every year with each animated release. Their sequels even do well and dare I say some are even better than their predecessor, including Toy Story 2 and the incredible Toy Story 3, which looked to come to a conclusion in the Toy universe. It was a wide range of emotion, both happy and truly emotional on how the filmmakers ended Toy Story 3. It was like the perfect ending. Well of course, Pixar and Hollywood are a business and money talks. Since that’s the case, we now have Toy Story 4, which does nothing new and makes every thing worse in their own little universe. This is a blatant unnecessary sequel, but only succeeds on the tails of its already lovable characters and their superb voice actors.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2019

THE FILM

(Film Review Portion Written By Audrey Evans)

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back, but this time he has a fellowship of web-warriors from other dimensions to save the day. In a market currently flooded with Marvel, one might scoff at the idea that ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘ has anything new to offer, but prepare for a fresh spin on this radioactive world. This ‘Spider-Man‘ is hilarious, bold and inclusive. It not only reflects diversity in its artistic approach, but also in its cast of characters – and above anything else, the animation is absolutely unparalleled!

“The third installment caps off an incredible franchise with the most emotionally resonant chapter that gives all involved a fitting end.”

The How To Train Your Dragon trilogy has always rivaled Pixar movies for me. The animation is great, the voice acting is top-notch, the story and themes are full realized, and the emotional beats are earned. The third installment caps off an incredible franchise with the most emotionally resonant chapter that gives all involved a fitting end.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the best animated movie of 2018. It is funny, charming, exciting, and carries an emotional weight I didn’t expect. Even in a year with Incredibles 2Spider-Verse manages to reach higher highs in action and storytelling.
