More than 30 cartoon features are slated to release in 2021. Here’s a rundown of this generation’s animated comedies that still hold up after many viewings.
The vision of ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Monsters, Inc.’ director Pete Docter, ‘Soul’ is a sometimes sublime, somewhat flawed entry into the noble Pixar canon.
When every newly released children’s movie is overstimulating, with nothing at a Miyazaki tempo, that’s a problem. Thankfully, works like these are more accessible than ever.
With its million-dollar haul, ‘Tuttle Twins’ ranks as the top crowdfunded children’s entertainment project ever.
The streaming wars are heating up, as John Krasinski’s ‘Some Good News’ signs on with CBS, ‘Hamilton’ heads to Disney Plus, and Tom Hanks’ new war movie goes straight to Apple TV.
In a time men are portrayed at best as fools and at worst as oppressors, ‘Onward’ is a breath of fresh air. The story shows the importance of fatherhood and the consequences of its absence.
Two years before the release of ‘Toy Story,’ Phil Vischer released the first computer-animated VeggieTales film. Now he’s reviving the Bible-based children’s series for a new generation.
The shape-shifting Clayface debuts in a very good yet mildly disappointing two-parter.
This family film underscores a type of love that doesn’t die after stepping aside. Instead, mundane mystery that it is, friendship becomes fulfilled and glorified when it makes way for life.
Audiences tend to like the hero’s journey, not moviemakers who bludgeon audiences over the heads with morals and forced progressivism.
The Joker turns assassin in an episode about fathers and sons — real, imagined, and lost.
In a flawed episode, Batman does not arrive until the final act. The wait is worth it, even if parts of the plot are hackneyed and overdone.
Officer Renee Montoya, a character created for the series, gets her true introduction in an episode without a super-villain.
The introduction of Poison Ivy reveals more about Bruce Wayne – and the ambitions of the series.
‘Watership Down’ is both a deeply, fantastically imagined mythology, and an epic adventure story full of thrills and hair-breadth escapes whose appeal to all ages will never stale.
The vengeful Scarecrow attacks Batman’s psyche, revealing daddy issues.
After throwing the audience a curve with Man-Bat in the series pilot, the creative team turns to the best-known member of Batman’s rogues gallery.
Instead of telling stories and developing compelling characters, children’s movies today prefer to promote boring feminist and anti-family propaganda.
I’m a former sex educator trained by Planned Parenthood, so I know the show’s portrayal of them as a clinic that helps adolescents and families is way off the mark.
Most of the films nominated for Best Picture that year justly disappeared down the memory hole, while ‘WALL-E’ remains as vibrant and striking as ever.
