    Shenyongo's Movie Quickies
    STAR WARS: The Phantom Menace

    In retrospect, this is ironically the best entry of the Star Wars Prequels Trilogy.

    Revenge of the Sith does not hold up in retrospective, in fact it actually shares a lot of the same problems as Attack of the Clones (including in being boring and lifeless through a majority of the runtime).

    Phantom Menace on the other hand, while being cinematic autism (hold your horses, I have Aspergers syndrome myself), at least has some of that adventurous feel from previous Star Wars films.

    STRIKE THREE!

    YOU'RE OUT!!

    I vented a lot of rage in my review of ALIEN Resurrection, so tonight I want to discuss a certain special movie from my childhood

    Disney's ATLANTIS: The Lost Empire

    After the Disney Renaissance of the 90s, the Disney brand was beginning to struggle as numerous formulaic copycats made audiences weary of the classic Disney-animated-musical style and the rise of CGI animation with Dreamworks' Shrek during the 2000s.
