Perhaps it says something about the nihilistic perspective of modern society, but the post-apocalyptic story is becoming a popular genre; not since the height of the Cold War have movies been so obsessed with the end of civilization. No longer res...

Adventures of Tintin, The

Had The Adventures of Tintin been a live motion picture rather than a motion capture-driven animated endeavor, it would have been compared to Raiders of the Lost Ark and Pirates of the Caribbean. As it is, however, with the cartoonish characters se...

Aladdin

One wonders what Disney is going to come up with next, and whether they'll be able to continue at the high level of quality attained by their recent batch of films. 1989's The Little Mermaid is nothing short of delightful, and Beauty and the Bea...

Anastasia

Finally, there's a legitimate challenge to Disney. And, while it's unlikely that Twentieth Century Fox's Anastasia will break the Mouse's stranglehold on animated films, it's a good place to start. Anastasia is easily the best non-Disney anim...

Angry Birds Movie 2, The

Put The Angry Birds Movie 2 into the basket of sequels that no one was asking for. Three years ago, it made (business) sense to release The Angry Birds Movie. That film helped boost the Angry Birds brand, which had already infiltrated almost e...

Angry Birds Movie, The

Calling The Angry Birds Movie an “animated film” is giving it airs. It’s a cartoon. Deal with it. Family-friendly motion pictures, whether live action or computer-drawn (the hand-drawn versions are no longer being made), fall into one of sev...

Anomalisa

Anomalisa offers evidence that animated films are not necessarily the sole province of children. In fact, this one isn’t even designed for all adults. Charlie Kaufman has always been something of an acquired taste. Anomalisa highlights Kaufman at h...

Ant Bully, The

The Ant Bully is a sore disappointment to anyone hoping for a turnaround to the recent downward quality spiral of animated films. In fact, this movie may represent a new nadir for 3D animation. Although it's pretty enough to look at (although now...

Antz

In the Magic Kingdom, they must be getting nervous. For years, Disney has had a death grip on the animated market, but, as we enter the latter years of the 1990s, the corporation that gave us Bambi and Snow White is finding their dominance cha...
