    "Music is all I think about. From the moment I wake up in the morning to the time I go to sleep at night. I was born to play."

    With this film, Pixar hasn't just made the best animated film of the year, or even their best Pixar film, they may have made one of the best movies of all time.

    Soul is absolutely phenomenal. It does everything right. It follows the usual Pixar formula (which works…

    "It's all or nothing with me. It's who I am."

    When I originally saw Alita, it was on my phone, and it wasn't the best video quality. That's why I was so excited when Cinemark brought it back into theaters. Now I could see it on the big screen and see if that improved the quality. And it most certainly did.

    The visual effects in this movie are out of this world, crazy good. The…

    "Glass tables been acting weird today."

    This might be one of the best comedies I've ever seen. Talk about FINALLY updating the genre. No random naked body shots, only one dick joke (that was actually pretty funny), no token characters used solely for stereotypes, and a narrative structure that had a purpose that wasn't just sacrificed for cheap laughs.

    On top of that, what a brilliant cast. Jason Bateman is fantastic in awkward comedies. Add this to…

    "What is the meaning of life?"
    "You don't know?"
    "Nobody told me."

    How deliriously cute was this? And what a way to put the cherry on top of the Oscar win. Revisiting these characters was a great refresher of how well written they are. And the possibility for a sequel seems entirely possible.

    This was just a lot of fun and charming for a short film.

    "Who would've thought a tech company wouldn't have our best interest at heart?"

    Sony Animation's follow-up to their Academy Award winning, Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse is a delightfully humorous romp with a quirky, weirdly off-putting family on a desperate adventure to save the world from our new robot over lords.

    The animation team at Sony got some big heads after finally besting Disney out of the Oscar that they figured an awkward family adventure film with randomized…

    "I'll show them what a pawn can do to a King."

    This left me with an overwhelming feeling of *sigh*.

    The film never reaches the heights its going for. The thriller aspect is middling, the drama is underserved, and the action, while good, isn't exciting or as pervasive as it should be.

    So the film leaves you pretty underwhelmed. Michael B. Jordan is doing his best to help lift this film out of the gutter, and his performance is committed despite the screenplay and the direction not being able to hold up their end of the bargain.
