I overall enjoyed the first Sing film. I thought it was really entertaining to have an animated jukebox musical film set around a theater performance and I overall enjoyed the characters. Sing 2, on the other hand, well…read on for my thoughts.
Sigh…the more I think about this film, the more I hate it! Sorry, you can already tell that this is going to be a negative review.
Pixar’s 25th film, Turning Red, was the third Pixar film in a row to be released on Disney+ instead of theaters. At first, I wasn’t supportive of this decision, but after seeing this film, I think it was the right thing to do. Without further ado, let’s take a look at Turning Red!

As one of my favorite franchises ever, you can imagine how excited I was when they announced an animated Scooby-Doo film coming to theaters! Yes, we’ve had multiple animated direct-to-video Scooby-Doo films before, but never one that was intended for theatrical release or theatrical quality. I wasn’t too fond about Dax Shepard being involved in the writing and directing, but the fact that it was intended to be the first film in a Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe completely had me stoked!
Fast-forward through COVID-19 and Scoob! would no longer be released to theaters and would instead go directly to streaming. (It would later get a brief weekend theatrical release in North America in 2021, but that was it.) Did the film live up to my expectations? Read on to find out!

I’m always excited when a new film in the animated Disney Canon is released! It’s such a grand event for me!
But it’s even a grander event when the film is a milestone number in the Disney Canon! I remember the hype when Tangled was released as it was the 50th film in the Disney Canon. Fast-forward ten films and we’ve arrived at the 60th film in the Disney Canon, Encanto! What do I think of it? Read on to find out!
It’s always exciting when a brand-new animation studio enters the market! So when the newly-founded Locksmith Animation announced their first film, Ron’s Gone Wrong, I was legitimately excited to check it out! What did I think of it? Read on to find out!

Luca would be the second Pixar film after Soul that would debut on Disney+ rather than being released theatrically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Should this have been theatrically released though? Read on for my thoughts on the film!

While I didn’t grow up with the series due to not having cable, SpongeBob SquarePants is an animated series that I quite enjoy. I love the characters, the humor, and the underwater setting of the Nickelodeon show. A major success, it wouldn’t be long before the franchise spawned theatrical feature films.
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie was released in 2004 and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water was released in 2015. I haven’t seen both recently, but I think I enjoyed them fine and especially admired the richer animation shown therein due to a higher budget!
In 2020, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (another SpongeBob movie, but this time utilizing CG animation) was released. What did I think of this third offering? Read on to find out!

Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? is the thirteenth and most current television series in the Scooby-Doo franchise. What do I think of it? Read on to find out!
Pixar’s Soul was one of the seemingly uncountable theatrical films that had to be postponed or relegated to streaming due to COVID-19. In Soul‘s case, it was the latter. Directed by Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out), the film has gotten overwhelmingly positive reviews. What are my thoughts on Pixar’s latest? Read on to find out!

Tricoast Entertainment very graciously gave me early access to the animated film, Agathe Christine: Next Door Spy. This is an English dub of the animated 2017 Danish film, Nabospionen. Read on for my thoughts on the film!
