Review: Wreck-It Ralph

Wreck-It Ralph peddles the perfect brand of retro nostalgia. Bursting at the seams with references to the golden age of gaming, it cleverly navigates the balance between childish, yelping nostalgia and an appealing sense of technological progression

Did Disney Predict the Future of the Human Race?

Lewis Shepherd | Posted 19.03.2013 | UK Tech
Lewis Shepherd

Maybe we won't end up in a spaceship hovering above the earth in the way that Wall-E foretold but sitting in isolation communicating and doing everything via an Internet connection, like the morbidly obese in the animated hit, could become a dreaded reality if we aren't careful.

The more Hollywood relies on remakes and pours money into superhero franchises that are safer bets at the box office, the more people will turn up to watch these beautifully drawn animated worlds brought to life.

The Brave People of Disney

Jack Blackburn | Posted 17.11.2012 | UK Entertainment
Jack Blackburn

There are no greater magicians in the modern age than the storytellers of Pixar, but they should not carry it alone. No-one at Pixar would claim that digital animation is the only way. They all fell in love with hand-drawn and stop motion work as children, and those mediums deserve their place still. They too can delight the child.

Review: Brave

Charlotte Skeoch | Posted 09.10.2012 | UK Entertainment
Charlotte Skeoch

The formula for Disney used to be so simple: take one porn-star proportioned, doe-eyed virgin on the brink of adulthood, screw on a magical affliction, support on brackets of dysfunctional and/or single parent family, furnish with evil hags and dashing Princes heavy on bravery and light on personality, decorate with singing balls of fluff. It was like the IKEA of children's films: bright, simple, and formulaic. But feminism and animation went and ruined it all- society grew tired of damsels in distress- the 50s housewife that Disney princesses were undoubtedly modelled on seemed ridiculously outdated, insulting even. Disney's unruly child, Pixar, introduced the world to boys toys and morals for a modern audience in Toy Story, out-stripping it's parent so quickly that less than 20 years on, it's practically gobbled all of Disney up.

There may have been concerns that Puss in Boots might have been a step to far for the character of Puss, but luckily Banderas and his co-stars are more than capable to hold the audiences attention for the full 90 minutes.
