Bolt (2008) "Bolt" is an adorable film, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that it is the "best Disney since 'The Incredibles'" as the box and promos say.  "The Incredibles" was flawless, whereas "Bolt" has issues.  Still, that did not stop the film from grossing nearly $115 million at the US box office.  Home video sales are surely to soar.  Who wouldn't want to watch a cute, lovable puppy search for his way home? Bolt is a cute and cuddly puppy that gets adopted from a pet store by Penny.  The film jumps to five years in the future when Bolt is battling the evil one green-eyed man and protecting Penny from harm.  Of course, all this is a television show.  The catch is, Bolt doesn't know it.  He believes everything is real.  After every show Bolt is kept in ...

Pinocchio (70th Anniversary Edition) (1940) In 1940, Disney pioneered animation with "Pinocchio."  While the film is not up to the standards of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" or "Dumbo," "Pinocchio possesses a unique charm.  There is rarely a person out there that hasn't heard of the wooden boy who was transformed by a fairy into a real boy.  "When I Wish Upon A Star" has been remade on several occasions, most notably by Billy Joel. Disney releases "Pinocchio" in this 70th Anniversary edition, odd as it has only been 69 years since its release.  Oopsy. Geppetto, Pinoccho, Figaro and Jiminy Cricket are all memorable characters.  Jiminy has been used by Disney in several short story animations as well as in promotional material.  Clips from the film have been used for more than 60 years. Geppetto is a toymaker that has just finished building a wooden puppet.  He ...

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa I absolutely loved “Madagascar,” so I was thrilled when I learned that they were releasing a sequel.  Like “Finding Nemo,” “Madagascar” is one of those animated films that has a bunch of memorable lines, characters and story.  The sequel, “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” is a bit of an enigma in terms of making of my mind on its quality.  Audiences seemed to take to the film as it grossed $180 million at the box offices in the US.  Still, this is not one of those sequels that lives up to the original, mainly because the story is unoriginal. All the lovable characters from the original return in this sequel, along with all the original voice cast members, which the only way the sequel of an animated feature will work.  Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer, Sascha Baron Cohen ...

Wall•E Pixar may be the only company that’s kind of boring because its movies are always—ALWAYS—terrific. Long or short, they’ve all been winners, and “WALL•E” is hardly an exception.  It’s wise, touching, funny and exciting. Writer-Director Andrew Stanton, a Pixar veteran, has taken on formidable task: creating an animated movie mostly about robots—hard, inflexible metal—and told almost without dialogue. Nonetheless, the robots are expressive, the story is clear and involving. At times, it’s even exciting, especially when our little hero WALL•E reaches the spaceship carrying some human beings. There’s a brief recap of the future history of Earth, briskly related to us by megacorporation BNL’s CEO Shelby Forthright (Fred Willard, in live-action footage). Pollution and population increase have made the Earth inhabitable, so humankind boards a fleet of luxury-craft spaceships, which head out on what’s intended to be a five-year cruise. During ...

Kung Fu Panda For better and for worse, “Kung Fu Panda” is exactly the movie the trailers suggest it is, neither less nor (unfortunately) more. It’s lots of fun to watch, but for the most part, you won’t take much away with you. There’s nothing innovative about the CGI animation, nor about the story. A dork unexpectedly enlisted as a hero saves the day and makes some friends. Bob Hope based the middle half of his career on pretty much this storyline, and many another comic actor has taken a stab at it, too. Of course, it’s also a pretty sure-fire formula if it’s handled by the right craftsmen. Furthermore, this kind of upbeat ending is often exactly what audiences want. The fun of it all is seeing how our dorky hero—here, a big fat panda named Po (voice of Jack Black)—gains confidence and ...
