I literally have no idea what Boss Baby is. I'm probably blessed

The only CGI-animations I've seen from this decade are Frozen and Toy Story 3. And I'm also half way through Gnomeo & Juliet, which sucks ass, but I have to finish it some day because it's one of the last Emily Blunt films on my list. I think there's also a sequel coming out, which is dreadful. Those kind of films are just the kind of lazy unimaginative garbage I despise when it comes to modern animation and family films.

I also still want to see Tangled and the subsequent short films, before I check if the new series on Disney Channel is worth watching

Doubt I'll see Frozen 2. But Toy Story 4, of course. As I've said before, somehow they haven't missed a beat yet, and every film has been great. Really hope the new one doesn't break the chain and become Kingdom of the Crystal Whatever of the series. Will be sad without Potato Head, but what can you do...

I would recommend the recent Disney and Pixar CGI animated films since they do have a consistent high bar of quality. Tangled is definitely the best of the bunch, and feels the most like the 90s Renaissance classics; Inside Out and Zootopia are particular standouts from the last two years. As far as DreamWorks goes, their output besides the Kung-Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon films is pretty much what you've already gathered from news like "Boss Baby 2", and since Illumination is the animation studio that brought us the Minions... I have no intention of giving them any of my money for their films.

Hmm.

What are some good animated stop motion films? I'm pretty sure these are the only ones I've seen through:

Nightmare Before Christmas (9/10)
Corpse Bride (7/10)
Frankenweenie (7/10)
Coraline (7/10)

Also in terms of Muppets movies, are there any good ones besides the Muppet Christmas Carol? That one I absolutely adore and watch every year, but besides that the only one I've seen was the 2011 reboot, or whatever it is... it was okay, but not what I'd call particularly enchanting. It was aimed more for little kids whereas the Charles Dickens adaptation had grown up feel.

I'd also recommend Wallace & Gromit, both the four television shorts and the full-length movie released by DreamWorks; The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Basically, virtually anything from Aardman Animation is sure to be entertaining.

I adored Kubo & the Two Strings, also from Laika, and it's what I consider to be an overlooked classic. Seriously though, that film was basically ignored by the film-going audience, like a lot of good or great films in 2016. I still haven't seen Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr Fox though. I still need to see Frankenweenie and Corpse Bride.

Oh yeah as kid I saw those original W&G TV specials on library VHS, but I'm pretty sure that was 20 years ago already as my memories are really vague. One of them was about going to the moon made of cheese right? I might revisit them at some point, as well as the newer feature film

Going back to Tangled, have you watched the new TV series yet?

I'm afraid not, not because it looked bad necessarily but I read a few reviews of it online from huge Tangled fans and they were pretty middling about it, so I'm not really in any urgency to watch it.

you're actually missing out quite a bit if you haven't watched some of the other CGI-animated films of recent years--Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, and Zootopia are all VERY good. but there are also alot of stinkers, so if you want to watch the quality CG-movies and avoid the bad ones you'll want to do quite a bit of research

Here's the Friday Box Office stats for Friday according to Box Office Mojo.

1. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Just under $23.4 million

2. Baywatch: $5.730 million

3. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2. : $5.322 million

4. Alien: Covenant: $3 million

Disney is going to dominate the weekend yet again, Baywatch is going to bomb, and Alien: Covenant is imploding.

I'm not a big fan of CGI, that's the reason why I only watch the (very carefully) selected ones. I don't think it's necessarily lazy form of art in comparison to traditional cartoon animation, I mean there's certainly style and effort in it, but there's something about it that bugs me. Still over 20 years after since these things started to come out, I don't like the way how they move the characters around, or how they interact with each other, you know? It's very hard for me to explain, at least in english. In traditional cartoon, or only-assisted-computer-animation this isn't a problem.

Also I don't like how they always just put on big name Hollywood or celebrity actors as voices. The magic of cartoon characters to me has always involved the best possible voice actors, with unique sounding voices, and this is still true in cartoon TV series where they don't go after big names (other than for possible guest starring roles), but rather people with actual talent. Special voices fit for specific characters. In films, most of these Hollywood names are there 100% because of the name, not talent. Some of them can do the job, but with most their voices ain't special, just mundane, because that's not why they are actors in the first place... it's kind of like when seeing porn stars trying to act Laughing

Finally, the glimpses I've seen of all these other CGI films... they try too hard with the comedy and slapstick. It becomes overload, even in something like Madagascar of which I've seen some.

Anyway. I might rewatch Bugs Life in coming days. Been a few years, great film. And much better than Antz lol

2. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2: Just under $19.9 million

3. Baywatch: $18.1 million

And Alien: Covenant is just imploding. The Monday after last weekend, it lost it's first place spot to Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. From first to second to fourth. That's embarrassing. Other the upcoming Transformers movie, it looks like another bad year for Paramount.

This was the weakest 4 day weekend (Memorial Day) for movies since 2000.

And it looks like Paramount is in bigger trouble then we thought.

Well if Wonder Woman is as good as they say I hope that director finally gets the recognition she deserves, and more work of course.

Hey now! I'm a huge Sony fan. *wags finger.

But no seriously if Sony keeps operating at their arrogant state they may be the first movie studio to win the Darwin award. It is simply unfathomable to me that Sony can find these amazing people and studios to run the PlayStation division(also an entertainment division) but have a complete lack of self awareness of what is and isn't a good decision for a movie at nearly every turn.

I want all heads at Sony film to roll and have a complete reform while they can capitalize off Spider man for now. It just hurts me to know that SONY could be a great movie studio with the right people in charge.

Scott said it's because of how Japanese companies have a hand-off policy when it comes to foreign branches or something like that. Given how bad the American movie branch is doing and how the overall Sony boss is starting to take more notice, I wouldn't be surprised if Sony makes a big move concerning that branch. I see Sony's planned Spider-Man universe with the Venom movie and the Silver Sable/Black Cat movie as their last stand. If those movies bomb or make a profit yet still underperform, then it's game over.

I loved District 9, and personally enjoyed Elysium but really disliked Chappie. But I am hopeful that Blomkamp can return to his old creative juices, and am very curious about his new studio and its projects.

Considering that Sony has the rights to Ghostbusters, my favorite franchise of all time, I really hope they don't go under, and can pull something off to bring it back in a better attempt than last time. And I say that as someone who liked the reboot, despite finding it far lower than the original films (or the video game, which if they don't do a CGI film in the future, I wish they'd do. The 2009 game, and not that top-down shooter trash they've tried and failed with twice now.)

Eh.....I'm not of the mindset that Disney will purchase everything, nor do they need to. Same on that discussion of if the Jurassic Park rights revert.

Sony is now offering a ridiculous "clean version" of their films for families.

http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2017/06/06/sony-now-offering-clean-versions-of-their-films-for-especially-lame-childre

Movies like Step brothers are on the list but also movies like Spider-Man and goosebumps(how much more clean can those get?).

So the reviews for The Book of Henry are in and... they are so much less than I was hoping. I like Trevorrow, I am still rooting for him to succeed but this is his last directorial effort before Star Wars: Episode IX and it's not the display of storytelling finesse that would assuage one's fears before being handled one of (if not the most) prestigious film franchises ever.

And just to rub further salt in the wounds, it only validates everyone who hated on the film and its director, squandering a perfect chance to SHUT THEM UP. This could have been the movie that turned the tide and it only fuels every reason for certain groups of fans who want Trevorrow kicked off Episode IX and are content to keep dumping on Jurassic World. As if we needed more of their kind.

ScreenRant's 2/5 Star Review for The Book of Henry

I know I'm not exactly feeling disposed to playing nice on this one, but that's because I wanted to see The Book of Henry and the majority of reviews wither paint it in a very negative light or they're only slight recommendations. Even Chris Stuckmann's review on it, calling it Trevorrow's "best", felt very... forced, like he didn't really believe what he was saying. In those immortally damning words; I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

You know, given how Trevorrow was 'coached' by Spielberg, most likly due to how he didn't do much for JP3 (which CLEARLY showed in bad it is) and how he didn't want to make that mistake again, I can't help but wonder if Spielberg was really the one making the movie as Executive Producer the same way that Ben Affleck is the one who's really making Justice League by being the Executive Producer.

I'm sure he wanted to avoid another failed attempt at a nostalgic franchise revival like many had come before, and the franchise almost dying thanks to Jurassic Park III probably gave him some further motivation to guide the production to a good end. I don't think the results were as extreme as the Ben Affleck/Zack Snyder Justice League scenario, because the film doesn't feel like it was as "Spielbergian" as it could have been. And there's video evidence of Colin shooting many key scene and sequences. But he probably had a lot of influence on the finished product.

On the other hand, there is no doubt that Jurassic World, despite it's less than perfect reception, basically saved Trevorrow from torpedoing his career prematurely with a film that's this strongly disliked/hated and caused him to fade back into obscurity. The phrase "no such thing as bad publicity" has always had a bit of a cynical ring to me, but one I could sort of see why it's as frequently used as it is.

I'm putting money down on two things right now: either Trevorrow is coached like with Spielberg on IX, or all these terrible reviews give Disney cold feet and remove him from the project.

This might be BS but I got an interesting opinion on why Colin why hired to do JW. Read through these two replies.

I love Colin. Colin is a great person. It's obvious the man has his heart in the right place. But I'm not sure he's that good of a director and I'm worried he's still writing JW and doing SW.

The critics may be bashing The Book of Henry but audiences seem to like it.

Haven't seen the film myself and I probably won't until it's out on Blu-ray.

Looks like WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES is great, early reactions are great so far. June 19 Fox will hold a special screening for the general audience so I'm almost sure by their level of confidence that this movie will rock.

As I fan, I really can't wait 1 month, I need this now!

So how bad or good is Pirates 5? Anyone seen it or plan to see it?

I know this is a pretty late reply here, but I did see PotC5, and I generally enjoyed it. It could have been more original at times, and some plot elements seemed kind of rushed and/or unexplained, but I liked it considerably more than the 4th movie, which was more like a spin-off starring Jack Sparrow.

I think it captured the "fun" feeling of the original more than some of the other sequels did. Then again, I also liked PotC3 despite its almost unintelligible plot (it did have a killer soundtrack, though), so I might be in the minority here Razz

I think I saw the final minutes of Pirates 5...maybe it was one of the other movies thought, I dunno. It was a pretty sad ending. And the Squid Man was in it as well. I thought it was a descent film from the tiny bit I saw.
