The box office might be struggling this year, but the horror genre is alive and well https://nbcnews.trib.al/yWB8pf3

In 2018 and 2019, Disney and Pixar combined will release 4 feature animation sequels and zero original animated films.

-but there ARE many original foreign & independent animated films that just aren't getting distribution here,, so no one gets to see them

:(

 

How many Herbie movies did the Disney Co. do after Walt's death in 1966?

We both enjoyed Victoria and Abdul, well-made, with excellent sets, costumes, cinematography (Danny Cohen), and location shooting in Scotland. Capable and blissfully unflashy direction by Stephen Frears, fine performances by all. An obvious recommendation for Judi Dench fans. Like almost all films that trend to an older demographic, it will receive some patronizing reviews.

Critics are hailing 'Blade Runner 2049' as incredible and somehow even better than the original.

This is a bit of a turn-around. the original has come to be beloved, but back in 1982, they were not so kind.....

actually sounds intruiging, but probably NOT for everyone

;)

 

I read a spoiler over on another site, and it's definitely not for everyone. Or maybe even very many at all. But it sounds right up my alley! I think the presence of Jennifer Lawrence may have fooled a lot of people into thinking it would be more mainstream and accessible.
