Top Ten: Films Of 2020

Well well well, what can one possibly say about 2020 that hasn’t already been said? This has been a year to forget societally, medically, and to a certain extent, cinematically. Many of the year’s big movies were postponed, and from a personal standpoint, many of the big movies that did go ahead proved to be…

Soul (2020)

Happy Holidays everybody. To those who celebrate at this time of year, I hope you were able to have as merry a time as possible even if your original plans were curtailed. With so much unexpected and unusual free time around the bust Christmas period, I carved out a couple of hours last night to…

Onward (2020)

Is it just me, or has this latest Pixar release surfaced with absolutely no fanfare whatsoever? When I say I had absolutely no idea what I was in for with Onward, I mean I hadn’t even seen a trailer, I’d barely seen a poster, and until I was physically at the cinema, I thought there…

Toy Story 4 (2019)

If this blog had existed in 2010, you would have no doubt come along to read how I thought Toy Story 3 was the perfect end to a pretty much perfect trilogy of Pixar movies that felt like they were specifically made with my generation in mind. Six years old with the first, ten years…

Top Ten: Films Of 2018

Here we are again folks, we made it! Another year passed and another year of films to assess. I managed to see a record high 74 films at the cinema this year, and if I say so myself, 2018 was a bit of a banger in terms of great releases. It’s been harder to whittle…

Incredibles 2 (2018)

For some reason, the hype and love for the original Incredibles film was something that kind of passed me by. Don’t get me wrong, I laughed along in the cinema with the rest of you those fourteen years ago, and I can’t profess to being ‘too cool’ for kid’s movies as a 15 year old…

Coco (2017)

If there were ever such a thing as a Pixar dip in form, then in my opinion, it has taken place over the last two years. Looking back, the last time I was really bowled over by a feature from the famed animation studio was 2015’s masterpiece Inside Out,¬†with both The Good Dinosaur and Finding…

Finding Dory (2016)

I’m just going to begin by putting it out there. 2003’s Finding Nemo is probably my favourite Pixar movie of all time (with¬†Wall-E a very, very close second). Funnily enough, for a film that has such close ties to my all time studio favourite, I came to Finding Dory with very little anticipation, perhaps because…

Top Ten: Films Of 2015

Well, as another year in cinema comes to a close, it’s once again to throw my list making two cents in to the hat and present you with my top ten movies of the year. It really feels as though 2015 has been a mega year for movies, with the return of some much loved…

The Good Dinosaur (2015)

2015 marks the first time in history that animation powerhouse Pixar have chosen to release two feature length films in one year. It’s fair to say that that their first effort, Inside Out, achieved almost unprecedented success and acclaim for such an outside of the box premise, with the film about the living and talking…
