Review: Tumblin’ Stuart – The Minion Of A Million Laughs

Review: Tumblin’ Stuart – The Minion Of A Million Laughs
The all new film Minions, a spin-off from the phenomenally successful Despicable Me franchise, centres on the iconic Minion characters introduced in the 2010 and 2013 films. Starting at the dawn of time as a single-celled yellow organism, Minions evolved through the ages, always serving the most despicable of masters.  Having proven unsuccessful at keeping bosses from T-Rex to Napoleon, the Minions find themselves with no one to serve and fall... 

“Big Hero 7” could be on the books!

“Big Hero 7” could be on the books!
Everyone’s favourite comic book genius Stan Lee may have let it slip that Disney’s Big Hero 6 will be getting a sequel. The planned follow-up is likely to hit our screens after other upcoming superhero movies Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and Black Panther. Big Hero 6 Co-Director Chris Williams previously stated that there would not be a sequel unless there was “a story to be told”. Not much later, whilst talking to the... 

Disney Veterans “Preserve the Dying Art of 2D Animation” in Steampunk Short Hullabaloo

Disney Veterans “Preserve the Dying Art of 2D Animation” in Steampunk Short Hullabaloo
Following a concerted campaign to “preserve the dying art of 2D animation”, a group of Disney animators have successfully funded a brand new, steampunk short via crowd-funding site Indiegogo. With Walt Disney having originally made his name on innovation in animation, it’s perhaps no surprise that the company he left behind has continued to break ground in this field, having produced some of the most breathtaking 3D CGI movies...

The Lego Movie Review

The Lego Movie Review
What happens when you combine the universally loved Lego bricks with the genius of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs’ Phil Lord and Chris Miller? Something – which this movie’s catchiest song is about – that is awesome. Everything is awesome. And it really is. The Lego Movie is a tale about Emmet, an everyman in the universe of Lego, voiced by Parks and Recreation’s Chris Pratt and immortalised as a wonderfully animated...

ReBoot Gets a Reboot – Rainmaker to Re-launch Mainframe
Are you ready to feel old? Well, don’t say you weren’t warned. It just so happens that next year marks the 20th anniversary of awesome, 1990s, internet-themed TV series ReBoot. You remember – the one that was fully computer animated before anyone really did that sort of thing? Yeah, you do. Amazingly, in honour of the occasion, the series’ Vancouver-based animation company Rainmaker has announced that it will be – aptly... 

Appleseed XIII Complete Series Collection Review

Appleseed XIII Complete Series Collection Review
Appleseed XIII is a fairly unusual anime series. It’s directed by Takayuki Hamana and written by Junichi Fujisaku but the actual production of each individual episode went to a completely different studio. One studio made episode one, another made episode two, another made episode three and so on and so on. It’s a worrying approach but the result is neither terrible or amazing. Thanks to the direction and the use of standard character models,...
