There are a few things you can expect when it comes to Laika: Uniqueness in their story, creepiness in their whimsy, and straightforward excellence in their craft. The American masters of stop motion animation have stayed true to form with their latest feature, The Boxtrolls, a story about an orphaned boy being raised by box wearing trolls based on the novel “Here be Monsters” by Alan Snow. I heard about this film over a year ago and, after a misunderstanding that led me to believe it had come out already, I’ve been looking forward to it ever since. Now that it’s finally out, I can’t wait to share it with you.

Reel Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Donald Glover said it best: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sounds like a homeless person’s fever dream… They’re all named after renaissance artist’s and they’re father’s a big rat!” It sounds crazy but it’s amazing! People love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles despite how absolutely ridiculous it sounds to put those four words together. They also get very defensive when someone says they’re making a movie about them, and that’s exactly what happened during every step of development. With fury sprouting all over the Internet about the script, it seemed like we couldn’t go a week before some new outcry would pop up. By the time it actually hit theaters on August 8th, many people including myself were so convinced of the film’s treachery that they decided not to even bother. However, one friend of mine watched it and, after assuring me that it wouldn’t cost me any money, convinced me to go see it with her, that it might actually be okay. I wish I could say she was right.

A note from Ted Geisel, AKA Dr. Seuss, to Chuck Jones, circa early 1980s. 

It’s so interesting to see the difference between Ted Geisel’s drawn lines and his written ones

Being good to each other is so important, guys.

This starts off in a good way and then goes in the BEST POSSIBLE DIRECTION

Reel Review: Earth to Echo

When I first saw the trailer for Earth to Echo, I was admittedly underwhelmed. The 30-second TV spot framed it up to look like an E.T. knock-off with a group of conveniently diverse kids trying to help a stranded alien get back home while avoiding the spooky government agency who want to experiment on their new found friend. OH! But this time the alien is a robot that’s not a robot so it’s totally different. However, after actually seeing it I’ve realized that just because both films can be reduced to the same sentence doesn’t mean they’re going to be the same story.

"Are you going to see amazing camera shots? Not really. Are you going to see great acting? They’re not half bad. Are you going to see a movie your kids will enjoy that may bring up some E.T. nostalgia? Most definitely."
