    I'd guess the reason Walt Disney didn't include Maleficent's backstory in the original Sleeping Beau... read morety is that it's just boring. Maleficent gets high marks for special effects, cinematography and Jolie's strong performance. But the rest of the film may as well have been cast through the Los Angeles area phone book -- there's not another performance better than "adequate". Also, one cannot escape the feeling that the movie is essentially a 15-minute story stretched out over 90 minutes with a lot of tedious filler that really just does not seem to matter very much. All in all, it is a snoozer of a film.

    If 2010's "How to Train Your Dragon" helped put DreamWorks Animation on the map as a legitimate cont... read moreender to the Pixar throne, then "How to Train Your Dragon 2" is visually one of the most impressive animation experiences ever. Created as the first DreamWorks animated film to use the new "Premo" and "Torch" lighting software throughout and with the assistance of some excellent direction from Dean DeBlois, "How to Train Your Dragon 2" is technically a visual masterpiece.

    Final Thought: Lack of a memorable plot notwithstanding, and aside from the fact that, in my opinion, it was a strange production choice to have a movie with such a particular plot twist open on Father's Day weekend, I GUARANTEE (judging from the lackluster Disney "Big Hero 6" teaser trailer) "How to Train Your Dragon 2" will win the Oscar for best animated film, based solely on its technical merits. Go ahead and quote me on that.

  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 (PG, 2014)

    As a continuation of the original film, this is a very well thought out and enjoyable sequel. As a s... read moretandalone it also entertains, but it has a couple of missteps that the original wouldn't dare make. These films will be a trilogy, as stated by writer/director Dean DeBlois, reminiscent of the "Star Wars" original trilogy, and in that vein this film does a genuinely great job of expanding our main character and showing him changing into a chief. There is also amazing technology in the making of this film, and that really shows in the various dragons, the landscapes, and the flying scenes. The main problems with the film stem mostly from the mother character, voiced by Cate Blanchett. As a character she is amazing, being learned on everything to do with dragons, and being a fearless, masked warrior shows her strength and agility, but when it comes to battle she is utterly useless. She has to be saved twice, and all her skills seemingly evaporate. The film also struggles with certain key plot points, trying to meld together some clichéd conventions in order to frame a great narrative. Though it sometimes struggles, and will probably be the weakest in the trilogy, it's very funny, very playful, and really entertaining.
  • Jimmy's Hall (Unrated, )

    I saw Jimmy's Hall at my favorite local Cinema (100 year old Phoenix) and was lucky enough to go to ... read morea screening that was followed by a Q&A session with legendary director Ken Loach. It was fascinating to hear him talk about the film and the politics at that point in time in rural Ireland. He didn't need to explain the obvious similarities between the social atrocities committed then to those that exist now, those are clear, but to hear the true and simple story of Jimmy Gralton and his community Hall truly inspires to act against it. Ken Loach asked at the end of the film that we remember Jimmy now 80 odd years after his death and a member of the audience added that sometimes art wins out and 80 years after the records of Jimmy's story, life and death were purposely destroyed, he can now finally be remembered and will indeed have the last laugh. To dismiss the film as just a load of socialist propaganda would be to show how ignorant the right really are (still). Even the Pope can't deny the injustices made by the Church, although he already kind of has. This film is about people and people's freedom (real freedom, not the imitation of that the neoconservatives and republicans harp on about). Watch with an open mind and judge for yourself but remember, it's all true. Another brilliant film from one of the best directors of all time.

    Visually speaking it's obviously great to look at, what 3D animated films these days aren't? (Disney, Pixar, BlueSky, Dreamworks etc. all doing it right.) but there's a lot of really, really great cinematography and visual development art to appreciate here. Like when his mother reveals herself for the first time, as the dragons illuminate the cave with the fire in their mouths, the giant ice fortress, the gathering of wild dragons reminiscent of tropical birds.... it's all very impressive stuff!

    Premise wise the second film has a seemingly dull story of an big evil man gathering a dragon army to take over the world and our young heroes attempts to thwart it, but anyone who's seen the movie will tell you the plot revolves much, much more around the character/family drama of Hiccup than anything.

    Between rekindling his relationship with his mother, finding himself, his place in the world and suffering a great loss on a couple of fronts, it's a very rapid emotional ride that resonates with what the protagonist is going through. Every scene is a shot to your heart and why wouldn't it be? They're incredibly well directed with an impressive musical score to really back up that melodrama.

    But as with any character driven film often times the rest of the cast plays a fairly two dimensional role and little complexities are given. Unfortunately this held true, other than Hiccup every single character played out like a cliché or stereotype.

    So if you love the protagonists, the film is kind of perfect. I only wish that Dreamworks tried a little harder to develop their robust cast instead of writing them off as either comic relief or shallow positions to facilitate Hiccup's progression. The strong father figure, the activist mother who regrets leaving her child, the supportive girlfriend, the villain's side-kick who wasn't actually bad but caught in a difficult situation, the many, many comic reliefs etc. it all looks a little lazy.

The most fatal thing that I cannot tolerate is how Michael turns the whole movie into a commercial by turning all the robots into Chevrolet, make a promo for Beats, and gave some spot for fashion commercial such as Victoria's Secret, Armani, or Tom Ford to make a short appearance.. I mean what the hell is he thinking? Not only the movie itself kinda flat because of the nonstop battle between robots, but how weak the main story is.. This time, I definitely think Bay should stop..
