Pixar’s Brave has just been released in the States and is receiving mixed reviews among certain critics, which is unusual for a Pixar film. It seems that Merida’s tale might play it a little too safe. Accusing fingers have pointed to Disney’s (meddling) influence as Brave is the first film to be produced entirely since their buy-out/amalgamation of Pixar. And speaking of which, Pixar’s next feature is Monsters University, a prequel to Monsters Inc. Playing it safe? Continue reading

You don’t need me to tell you The Avengers has been HUGE. A billion dollars box office in NINETEEN days. To put that in to perspective, it took Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight six months to reach the billion dollar mark. Marvel/Disney are dancing all the way to the bank, but what happens now? It’ll be three years until Avengers 2 if we’re lucky, what shall we do in the meantime? Worry not, Marvel has some plans (apparently)… Continue reading

News: New Poster And Clip From Pixar’s Brave

Cars aside, it’s an almost stone-cold guarantee that Pixar’s output will be of the utmost quality and the highest standard of storytelling. I have no doubt in my mind that Brave will carry on that fine tradition. The poster is intriguing (check out the big ol’ bear hiding behind the ‘R’), but if that doesn’t sell it to you, we have a brief clip down below. Have a look. Continue reading
