Bringing old films back remastered or in 3D is becoming the new in thing. Easy money and milking that cow. Something we should all say no to in hopes of great new ideas which will become the new Jurassic Parks and Back To The Futures. But when you see it is a film you just simply adore, it is hard to resist. A tactic which works as far as I’ve seen. The Lion King is the next in line and they’ve brought it back with new 3D effects. Nothing else has changed, Simba still learns about the stars in the sky and experiences life, death and responsibility. Timon and Pumbaa are still simply hilarious and the final battle still holds great power for the viewers. Just now you can see the foreground and background split with added depth. It looks nice, it was fun seeing it on the big screen. Still great at 22. There is nothing so wrong about re-releases really… just wonder what happens when they run out of the classics. Super Mario Bros The Movie in 3D? Hakuna Matata.
All the toys under one collection! With Toy Story 3 appearing in cinemas last year I expected a trilogy box set and here it is. Three classic films I’m sure everyone loves about toys coming to life, no wonder mine always went missing. Hundred words (ish) a piece I will share my thoughts on this amazing trilogy of cgi animated films. Continue reading
Never growing up and remaining a child sounds like a great thing, such a great thing that Michael Jackson took this up and look what happened to him. At least Peter Pan portrays a largely positive idea of living young in a world of adventure and imagination with little downers for doing so. You’re so irresponsible Peter! Continue reading
It has been a long time coming but the toy’s are back… in town… that phrase for the franchise seems pretty old hat, it was even used in the adverts back when the original came out. But it just rolls off the tongue! Toy Story 3 continues the excellent franchise and delivers a film which won’t disappoint. Better. Continue reading
Tim Burton, his style is Marmite for most. But I think it is alright at times, I mean Nightmare Before Christmas was a neat little world and Edward Scissorhands was brilliantly bizarre. Alice In Wonderland is a re-imaging of a classic Disney movie and we all know what happened when Tim got his hands on Charlie And The Chocolate Factory… dear god what a pointless sterile movie that was. Is Alice In Wonderful land any different? Continue reading
Toy Story! 3D! The end. Wait what? You want to know more? Well Toy Story in 3D is just Toy Story with some 3D effects thrown in, it has no extra scenes and I don’t think anything has been rerecorded, just 3D. The 3D isn’t that special either, a few times it stands out but for me it just feels like watching a film with two pairs of glasses on (I wear glasses normally for screens and stuff) which isn’t very comfortable. It probably wasn’t worth the charge for seeing the film in 3D might as well have been 2D but then they wouldn’t have filled a screening. 3D to me is still a gimmick which isn’t delivering all that.
