    Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

    ★★★★

    I cannot stop swooning over this gem. A beautiful reincarnation of an enchanting childhood staple which takes the wild imagination of the books and lovingly transfers it to a spectacularly animated feature. The film zips between genres and styles with unparalleled, high-octane enthusiasm. This is a true joy and if it's not nominated at the Oscars for best animated feature I will burst yet another blood vessel.

    And you know what? Ed Helms gives one of my favourite voice performances here. You couldn't find a better fit for conveying the dichotomy between Mr. Krupp and Captain Underpants.

Mystifying to all upon first inspection, the film was never intended for lethargic audiences. It was intended for the analytical and inquisitive who constantly and passionately congregate the clues in an attempt to solve the bamboozling riddle. I, myself, may not have unlocked…

    Noah

    ★★★★

    The arresting fashion in which Darren Aronofsky injects profundity into a predominantly superficial genre may be the most impressive accomplishment of the resplendent and epic Noah. Aronofsky, a filmmaker with the incessant purpose to innovate and redefine, puts forth one of his most divergent motion pictures but simultaneously one of his most mainstream with this re-imagining of Noah's ark. A true blockbuster on the surface, the sweeping temperament of Noah is uncommonly matched with intelligence and a bonafide, gravitating narrative…
