Blue Sky Studios’ “Epic” opens up to a less than epic domestic box office opening at #4! Grossing $32 million, the film made about as much as was predicted by most “experts”. In terms of worldwide gross, the film has made about $77 million, so it may have potential to be a hit after all! Have you seen it? If so, did you like it? If not, do you plan on seeing it?
Well, we’ve left the glorious age of the Disney Renaissance
and are now in what I like to call, “The…Post-Disney Renaissance/Modern Age”. During this era, the animated Disney features would stop being nigh unanimous critical and commercial hits and would be like they were in the ’70s-’80s, i.e. some would be hits and others wouldn’t.
When I started this blog, I never thought that I would have much followers, much less 50! So today’s post is all about you lovely people who make my blog what it is!
When I hit “25 followers”, I did a post thanking each one of them and giving each a shout-out with a description of them as well as a link to their blog. So I’ll be doing the same thing here continuing from #26!
So, once again, I’d like to thank the following people for following and reading my blog! If it weren’t for you all, my blog would be pointless. So without further ado, here are the names: Continue reading “I’ve Got 50 Followers!”
Ray Harryhausen has died today at the age of 92! Mr. Harryhausen (1920-2013) was known best for his work creating stop-motion animation for various live-action films including “Jason and the Argonauts”, “The 7th Voyage of Sinbad”, “The Golden Voyage of Sinbad”, and “Clash of the Titans” amongst others. His visual effects as well as himself will be greatly missed!
Today’s review is the first one that has ever been requested of me.
The name of the requester is Jegsy Scarr, an often viewer of my blog. She is an ardent fan of “The Phantom of the Opera”, so much so as to even compose FanFiction about it. And being a fan of “The Phantom of the Opera”, she suggested that I review either “A Monster in Paris” or an animated version of “The Phantom of the Opera”.
The extremely smart people of IBM have created what the Guinness Book of World Records verifies as the smallest movie ever made! I don’t mean small as in, low-budget, but physically small! The film, “A Boy and his Atom” is made from…ATOMS! This stop-motion animated film was made using carbon atoms and moved around with a scanning tunneling microscope! I love it and think it’s super cool! What do you all think?
