Why You and Your Kids Should See Pixar's 'UP'

Last week, my three oldest kids and I had a date night. We went to a 50s style diner, had hamburgers, fries and milkshakes, and headed to the 7:30 PM show. Not having read any reviews prior, I purchased tickets for Pixar's "Up" fully expecting that I...

Wall-E Comes to DVD

Next Tuesday, the latest Pixar film, Wall-E, comes to DVD. In our house, Lightning McQueen is still beloved, but I think Wall-E is getting more playtime these days. In case you haven't seen the film, Wall-E is a waste management robot left on earth...

WALL-E: Cute robot or liberal propaganda?

While I had my issues with WALL-E, I wouldn't have considered leftist brain-washing to be one of them (although, I suppose some might argue that I'm so far gone I wouldn't notice it in the first place). It seems, however, that some of the more...

Take the quiz: Pixar

A lot of people love Pixar. The amazing animation studio, with incredible artists like John Lasseter and Pete Docter, has a knack for infusing life and soul into normally inanimate objects. With hits like the Toy Story movies, Monsters, Inc, Finding...

WALL-E: The little robot that could

All the television with none of the guilt

Television was and still is a huge part of my life. When I say huge, I most certainly do not mean mystery meat tinfoil dinners on top of butterfly painted metal trays as the four of us sit down and watch our shows. What I do mean is that when the...

Pixar's new film: Wall-E

I love Pixar. There, I said it. I would have John Lasseter's baby, if I could. I loved both Toy Story movies, Monsters Inc., and The Incredibles. And, of course, I can't say enough good things about Cars -- it's one of my all time favorite animated...

Buzz and Woody's worst nightmare nearly comes true

For the past six months or so we have had a daily feature of Toy Story or Toy Story 2 at our house. My three year-old, Devon, loves the Toy Story gang and one movie per day enables me to get some work or laundry done. Devon has Woody and Buzz dolls...

Shrek 3, not quite what I thought it would be

Over the weekend I packed up my 10 year-old daughter and 2 /12 year-old son into the car and took them to see Shrek the Third. This has been a long anticipated event in our home. Devon, the wee one in our house, has seen both Shrek I and II more...

Finding Eating Nemo

My daughter is a huge fan of Finding Nemo, which I like, because it's one of the few kids' movies focused on a less-traditional family -- specifically, a single father and his child. Unfortunately, it appears Pixar has no plans for a sequel, but...

The glut of talking animal movies

This morning I ran across a catty link about one father's dismay at Hollywood's insistence on continually releasing the same sort of animated movies. It seems lately that the animated movies have the same sort of animal characters battling the same...
