COCO (2017) 3D

It’s irrelevant to speak about the animation quality of Pixar. We know every Pixar film is meticulously animated and they have over the years bordered on turning the animated visuals so life like that we mistake them for the real things. Pixar is also known for its varied color palate. Finding Nemo was one film…

GHOST IN THE SHELL (1995)

Ghost in the Shell is the first film of this franchise and is based on the acclaimed manga by Shirow Masamune. As I watched this film over and over again, I dived into a magical world of science fiction that is just as cerebral as it is psychedelic. When I watched this film for the…

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE (2017) 3D

The Lego Batman movie is brimming with energy and sarcasm from start to finish. It is in fact so fast paced that I was having a nightmare trying to keep up with it. The film is also one of the most sarcastic movies to have come out in a long long time. Essentially it is…

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS (2016)

Laika over the years has been making some terrific stop motion animation films like Paranorman, Coraline and even The Boxtrolls. However, with Kubo and the Two Strings they have left their body of work far behind. This is a film of incredible beauty and magic. A film so sweet and yet so powerful that you…

BATMAN : THE KILLING JOKE (2016)

I am a huge fan of the Batman animated movies. I feel that “The Dark Knight Returns” is the seminal masterpiece when we speak of animated Batman films. However, when I heard that “The Killing Joke” was being made into an animated film, my hopes rose. The proposition looked even more tasty when the film…

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE (2016) 3D

I had absolutely no plans of watching this film but many of my friends recommended it. They told me that it was a very intelligent film that imaginatively struck a perfect balance between the game and the story that the film has to tell. I finally watched it today and here is my review for…

ZOOTOPIA (2016) 3D

I have been hearing great things about Zootopia ever since its release but unfortunately didn’t get a chance to watch it. Months later having finally seen it, now I know how well placed those praises were. It is a smashing story disguised as another run of the mills animated fun and frolic flick. The story…

BIG HERO 6(2014) [3D]

Off all the animated films that I saw last year and trust me I saw many, Big Hero 6 is the first and probably the only one of the only two which harped on my heart. A story well told with a lot of action and heart and above all some serious swagger. The initial…

THE WIND RISES(2013)

Hayao Miyazaki has been weaving dreams for years now and with every film he just gets one better. His body of work may not be as big as some other directors but his work is path breaking in terms of content and sheer beauty. Before the release of The Wind Rises, he candidly stated that…
