‘Minions’ Review: Starring Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm & Allison Janney

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

It’s been five years since we were first introduced to super villain Gru (Steve Carell), the lovely three girls he adopted and his adorable yellow minions who can only speak in minion talk, yet have assisted Gru in stealing the moon and capturing other villains for the Anti-Villain League. But how did these little yellow […]

‘Inside Out’ Review: Starring Amy Poehler, Bill Hader & Mindy Kaling

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The world of Disney Pixar has brought us glorious short and feature length films including the classic Toy Story trilogy, the sweet and touching Finding Nemo, my personal favorite WALL-E, the memorable UP and the adorable prequel Monsters University. Very much like Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar has a wonderful quality of making films that appeal […]

‘Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D’ Review: Sermon-Free Sequel Squanders Game Cast

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

It’s really a shame when an original, family-friendly film is followed by multiple disappointing sequels. A movie should only be made when the story is absolutely necessary to tell, otherwise we get three “Ice Age” sequels and don’t remember why we enjoyed the original animated film in the first place. “Ice Age” debuted in 2002, […]

‘ParaNorman’ Review: Spooky Fun For Kids and Adults

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

If you love “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Coraline” or Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride,” you’ll love Focus Feature’s stop-motion animation film, “ParaNorman.” Laika Entertainment, who brought us 2009’s wondrous “Coraline,” has produced the best animation film I’ve seen in years. Although I don’t think “ParaNorman” is as frightening as “Coraline,” it is full of zombies, ghosts […]

‘Finding Nemo 3D’ Review: Pixar’s Classic Still Looks Amazing

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“Finding Nemo” could be Pixar’s most enchanting film ever made. It brings us an amazing story of love and adventure, it’s colorful and has fantastic voice performances, especially from Alberts Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres. Director and screenwriter Andrew Stanton (“Wall-E,” “John Carter“) and voice talent, Brooks and DeGeneres, are signed on for the sequel set […]

‘Hotel Transylvania’ Review: Cute Family Fun For Halloween Time

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

It’s no question that director Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Hotel Transylvania” is equipped with a talented voice cast including Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Fran Drescher and David Spade (who doesn’t love “The Emperor’s New Groove?”). Dracula (Adam Sandler) runs a luxury hotel for all types of supernatural beings including ghosts, werewolves, skeletons and mummies. His daughter, Mavis […]

‘Frankenweenie’ Review: Tim Burton is Back!

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

“Frankenweenie” is one of the best films of the year for three main reasons: 1.) The story is emotional, funny and relatable 2.) The stop-motion animation is creative and visually perfect and 3.) director and visionary storyteller Tim Burton is back in full form. In 1984, Burton wrote and directed a live-action, black and white […]
