Another superb addition to the Spider-Man franchise thanks to providing a focus on his personal life while also delivering another excellent villain. Tom Holland continues his brilliant performance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, still the best live-action depiction to date, as he this time just wants to take a quiet vacation with his friends, only for his super hero life to keep getting in the way. The supporting cast remains wonderful, with Zendaya infinitely appealing as MJ while new addition Jake Gyenhall give a great take on Mysterio. Behind the camera, director Jon Watts crafts another fun adventure dealing with the classic balance of Peter Parker's personal and superhero life, while also adapting Mysterio for the modern age. While its hard to get into the character without spoilers, lets saw the film updates the character wonderfully while staying true to his nature. The action and effects remain top notch as well. Simply put, a great close out to Phase 3 of the MCU, and will definitely have you aching for Phase 4.
Another superb animated movie that, while not to the level of "Mask of the Phantasm", is another example that Batman may be best animated. The vocal cast remains superb, the standout being Michael Ansara's chilling performance as Mr. Freeze, notably in weaving in brief glimpses of humanity. Behind the camera, writer/director Boyd Kirkland crafts an action packed but emotional story, with some understandable motivations for the villains (Freeze is just trying to save his wife, after all). The mixing of the Bat family is nicely done as well, with Barbara Gordon being targeted with no one the wiser she is Batgirl, while the animation is gorgeous. Despite that, the film doesn't quite carry the punch of Batman films and sometimes feels like an overblown episode over an actual movie. Nevertheless, a great film to watch and another great edition in the Batman animated library.
Superb comic book film that adds new wrinkles to the Batman origin while also making the case for being the best Batman film ever. The vocal cast is superb from the TV show, with both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill giving the definitive takes on Batman and the Joker, while new comer Dana Delaney makes an intriguing love interest with Andrea Beaumount. Behind the camera, directors Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski craft an intriguing mystery with the new villain, the Phantasm, while also expertly working in both Batman and the Joker. The animation is gorgeous along with Shirley Walker's score, building to a tragic ending that shows just how the Dark Knight was born. Arguably the greatest Batman film ever.
Another brilliant addition to this classic animated franchise that still manages to find more fun and heartwarming adventure in its simple premise. The vocal cast is superb, as usual, with the returning members delivering their excellent performances. Tom Hanks as Woody gets to show extra layers of pathos as a toy trying to help another toy realize his job, while Annie Potts is a welcome return as BooPeep. The new additions are equally great, with Key & Peele stealing the show Ducky & Bunny (their mind trips are some of the funniest moments in all of "Toy Story"), while Keanu Reeves continues his current brilliant career streak as Duke Caboom (you will be quoting, 'I Canada!" after this). Behind the camera, director Josh Cooley delivers another hilarious yet heartwarming story, while also exploring just what a toy can be (Forky is a brilliant creation). The plot takes some nice twists too, especially with Gabby Gabby (beautifully voiced by Christina Hendricks) who originally seems like a villain but takes layered turned. Simply put, Pixar does it again, and while it ends on such a perfect note you think "Toy Story" should end with this film, but we've said that about every film, so Pixar should just keep making them till their done, because they are all brilliant.
Disney classic that still holds up as one of its very best, thanks to a powerful story and beautiful animation. The vocal cast is superb across the board, with James Earl Jones giving much needed gravitas as Musfasa, while Jeremy Irons makes Scar into one of Disney's great villains. The animation is gorgeous, rivaling "Bambi" is its accuracy and beautiful, along with a solid musical track (Hans Zimmer's score remains one of his best, while Tim Rice & Elton John provide some memorable songs, though the loss of Howard Ashman is already felt). The highlight is the story, a mix of Hamlet, Old Testament and Kimba the White Lion, is powerful, dealing with death and accepting responsibility. Overall, a true classic and next to "Beauty and the Beast" as the best films of the Disney Renaissance..
