Taika Waititi's "THOR:RAGNAROK" relies on it humour as a crutch. Taika has as much said that it's a comedy. It's not supposed to be the next Space Opera ala 'Guardians of the Galaxy' which one could assume it could be emulating and it's not a stretch to say Guardians success brought about this type of film. It's not the usual fare into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with some heart and attempted pathos of 'Homecoming' or 'Thor', or even the blusterous…
Imagine how much stronger those acceptance themes would have been if they'd cast an amputee as the live action child. Now take that misfire and triple it into a vat of writing aimed at emulating being written by a six-year-old. Yes, the cathartic point of being yourself isn't missed but when the script is this poor, the editing so strange and with the animation performing fits and start, it's difficult to appreciate the nuance half attempted

I was very lucky and privileged to see Zootopia as part of the Animex Festival, with guest speaker Renato Des Anjos who is the Head of Animation for the "Zootopia" project and it's production. With that, I got to see the finished film with animation students, all of whom were excited and passionate about what they were witnessing. It was also a very intriguing watch due…
I laughed, I cried, I laughed again.
Zootopia is one of, if not the downright funniest animated movie that I have ever seen, with such a clever, if convenient script and themes that are so relevant for this modern society.
Universally loveable, the ENTIRE family will love this film, from pop culture references to its gorgeous animation.
Oh, and you've not seen anything of the Sloth from the trailer yet!
