    Dude

    ★½

    I checked this one out because of Alexandra Shipp and Awkwafina and I'm happy for those girls that they got a job...but it's a really bad one. "Dude" is a DUD. It has nothing to say, no depth to the characters, no real purpose to the story which is told. We never feel the pain because of an early death in the movie and we never feel the friendship between the four main girls. It could've been a Netflix-version of…

    Saludos Amigos

    ★★

    It's fun to see how some of the storys here had ideas that manifested in later films. "Saludos Amigos" is basically a "trip to Mexico" by the animators of the studio sold as a documentary accentuated with some animated short films. We follow a little plane (with eyes) delivering the mail, a early form of "Cars" or rather the Spin-Off "Planes". The Llama which Donald meets at Lake Titicaca could be interpreted as an influence for "The Emperor's New Groove". It's a fun movie even if it's a big step back from the previous feature length animated movies.

The parade of the elephants - which Dumbo and Timothy Mouse are…

    Foreboding

    ½

    Foreboding was the worst. Non actors try to sell a non story. With 140 min 130 min too long. It‘s a shortfilm idea as painfully written and directed feature film. Never got the atmosphere of a moment right. So bad!!!
