Oscar-Nominated Animated Short Films

From my standpoint, this was not a good year in this category. However, you won’t have to sit long, as the entire presentation lasts only one hour and twenty minutes.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse

This will be a short review of an animated film that you really should take the time to see. It has a magical quality that deserves its critical praise.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Let me just say that there is a good reason that this film continues to dominate at the box office.

The Incredibles 2

What I love about Pixar is its ability to bring animated films to the big screen that both kids and adults will like.

Movie Reviews

While the demand from the holidays has kept me from reviewing films in my traditional format, let me give you a brief synopsis of five of them.

Loving Vincent

Van Gogh’s torment immediately before and after his death are vividly played out in a captivating manner.

The Boss Baby

I’ll only say that I loved Boss Baby and I predict that most of you will also.

The LEGO Batman Movie

While it will likely challenge in other areas, this endearing little film could very well win next year’s Oscar in the animated film category.

The Red Turtle

This is a tiny movie about finding love in unexpected places and eventually saying goodbye. It will touch your heart in totally unexpected ways.
