Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Netflix is continuing to show off its series adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf.

We first saw a teaser featuring Snicket, the pen name of the author of the books the series is based on, Daniel Handler, who’s played on the show by Patrick Warburton. Then came a teaser trailer introducing Harris’s version of the Olaf character, a tough role to take on after Jim Carrey famously played him in the 2004 feature film adaptation. More recently Netflix has gotten to the good stuff, releasing a full trailer last month and now a second full trailer today. You can watch both of the full trailers below.

30-Minute Pixar Halloween Special ‘Toy Story Of Terror’ Set To Air On ABC This Fall

Toy Story of Terror Image

Fans of Pixar’s Toy Story franchise have been somewhat spoiled not only by three wonderful movies, but by a collection of shorts that also feature the voices of all of the movies’ main stars.

Most of those shorts are only a few minutes long, but that will not be the case with Toy Story of Terror, and upcoming Halloween special once again featuring all of your favorite living toys.

The special will run 30 minutes in length, and will once again feature Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Rex (Wallace Shawn), Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton), and Trixie (Kristen Schaal). Also, a toy you might remember being blown up by Sid in the original movie, Combat Carl (to be voiced by Carl Weathers in the special)—also thought to be the first “death” in a Pixar film—will also make an appearance.

Toy Story 2Toy Story 2
Blu-Ray 3D Combo
Directed by John Lasseter, Ash Brannon, and Lee Unkrich
Starring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kelsey Grammer, Don Rickles
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: November 1, 2011

I am a sucker for animation. From Saturday morning cartoons to epic feature films, I have always been drawn to the medium. Disney movies were staples in my household, and we owned a ton of them. In fact, my current DVD/Blu-Ray collection probably has its roots in how I felt when bringing home a new Disney movie on video. Not only did the package contain the film that I loved, but the glossy, white-rimmed boxes were different from all the other VHS cassettes we had. They were a sight to behold, and though the format has changed over the years, Disney has never disappointed in their home video releases. Always at the forefront of trends, Disney/Pixar’s release of Toy Story 2‘s 3D Combo Pack is a beautiful one.

Chicken Little 3D Blu-rayChicken Little
3D Blu-ray/DVD Combo
Directed by Mark Dindal
Starring Zach Braff, Garry Marshall, Joan Cusack, Steve Zahn, Amy Sedaris, Don Knotts, Patrick Stewart
Walt Disney Video
Release Date: November 8, 2011

Is the Chicken Little 3D Blu-ray the end of the world, as we know it?

Chicken Little falls into that same mediocre Disney animated film category as Meet The Robinsons and Bolt and the more recent Mars Needs Moms. The movie proves that good animation can only get you so far. Without a compelling story, enjoyable characters, or good jokes, the film ultimately falls flat. The heart and storytelling of Pixar are sorely missed in Chicken Little, which relies too much on outdated references and animal gags that don’t entirely make sense in the world they’ve built.

Mars Needs Moms Four-Disc Combo

Mars Needs Moms
4–Disc Blu/3D/DVD/Digital Combo I 2–Disc Blu/DVD Combo I DVD
DIRECTOR: Simon Wells
WRITER: Simon Wells, Wendy Wells
STARRING: Seth Green, Seth Robert Dusky, Dan Fogler, Joan Cusack, Elisabeth Harnois, Mindy Sterling, Tom Everett Scott, Kevin Cahoon
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: August 9, 2011

Having the very unfortunate disposition of costing $150 million to make, and only bringing back $38 million worldwide in return, Walt Disney’s Mars Needs Moms can be considered one of the biggest flops of all time…and that, my friends, is not a good thing to have hovering over you. But is the movie really as bad as this monumental flop indicates, or are there redeeming qualities worth seeking out?

The movie follows Milo, (performance captured by Seth Green, voiced by Seth Robert Dusky), a normal everyday boy who has a bit of an argument with his mother (Joan Cusack). As most boys would, he feels badly about snapping at her with some very unkind words, and proceeds to go and apologize. But when he reaches her bedroom, a strange bright light is making its way through the bottom of the door, and he goes in to check out what it is. When he enters, he sees some sort of craft zooming away, and, realizing his mom is gone, runs after it only to find a spaceship, which he sees has taken his mother.

Mars Needs Moms

A new trailer for Mars Needs Moms is now online. Check it out here below.

The film is one of Disney’s upcoming non-Pixar animated films. It tells the story of Milo, a 9-year-old whose mother gets abducted by aliens so that they can rob her of her “mom-ness” to use with their own young. The film stars Seth Green, Joan Cusack, Dan Fogler, Elisabeth Harnois, Mindy Sterling, and Kevin Cahoon. It’s directed by Simon Wells who brought us the remake of The Time Machine. The film is produced by Robert Zemeckis who brought us Cast Away and The Polar Express. Yes, he also directed Back to the Future.

Mars Needs Moms is based on a critically acclaimed book from Berkeley Breathed, the Pulitzer Prize winning author and illustrator of the comic strip Bloom County. He based the book on a disagreement he had with his son also named Milo.

Movie Review: Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 – ***1/2
Directed by Lee Unkrich
Starring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Ned Beatty
Release date: June 18, 2010

It is wonderful to capture memories. We all do it one way or another. Video recorders are typically used for it, be it either for capturing celebrations, parties, talent shows, sporting events, or even sorrowful ones that cause us to be emotionally saddened. Years go by when we return to them again finding bliss and a moment out of time that is impossible to explain; an unfathomable remembrance of things past.

Toy Story 3 begins magnificently with old videos of Andy playing with his toys — a time when he kept reality at bay and possessed nothing but joy, caring very little from what was transpiring outside of his fantasy world abundantly full of train robberies and spacemen saving the day from evil. We all have to move on, and Toy Story 3 finds grievance in this stark realization and employs it throughout the movie within characters like Andy who is now going away to college, his mother struggling to deal with that, and his entire chest of toys who are facing being either shipped to the attic, donated to Sunnyside daycare, or thrown in the trash because Andy has grown up.

toy story 2Toy Story 2
Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo
Directed by John Lasseter
Starring Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Joan Cusack, Kelsey Grammer, Don Rickles
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: March 23, 2010

Toy Story 2 had a lot to live up to. The original Toy Story was an instant hit both critically and commercially. It’s success started PIxar down the path of awesomeness that would eventually lead to nine other formidable films that I still cherish. So the question is, how would they follow up such a massive hit? With more of the same, as it turns out.

Where the first film focused on Buzz Lightyear more and was really his story, the sequel gives a similar treatment for our favorite cowboy, Woody. Woody’s friend and owner Andy heads off to cowboy camp leaving his toys to their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector named Al McWhiggin (owner of Al’s Toy Barn) kidnaps Woody. At Al’s apartment, Woody discovers that he is a highly valued collectible from a 1950s TV show called Woody’s Roundup, and he meets the other prized toys from that show, Jessie the Cowgirl, Bullseye the Horse, and Stinky Pete the Prospector. Back at the scene of the crime, Buzz Lightyear and the other toys from Andy’s room — Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Rex, and Hamm — spring into action to rescue their pal from winding up as a museum piece. The toys get into one predicament after another in their daring race to get Woody before Andy returns.
