My Thoughts: PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH (2022)

I enjoyed the first Puss in Boots film. It wasn’t anything amazing, but it was definitely my favorite film in the Shrek universe as I’m not really a fan of the Shrek films.

And I had known that a sequel to the film had been in development for a while. I remember when it was going to be called Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves. Having not heard anything for a while, I thought the film would just be cancelled altogether. But somewhat out of nowhere, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish was scheduled to be released in 2022.

I knew that I wanted to see it, but was in no rush to until critic reviews started coming in. Multiple film reviewers I follow listed this as not just their favorite animated film of the year, but also one of their favorite films of the year! My curiosities were piqued, so I decided to check this film out in the theaters (something I don’t do often) and…I’m so glad that I did!

Upcoming Animated Films in 2022

2022 already? I think we can all agree that while 2020 never seemed that it would end, 2021 just zoomed by us! Maybe it was a better year than 2020, maybe it was more of the same, but whatever the case may be, it’s nearing its end.

We hope that 2022 will be an even better year for us and hopefully we can be free of this pandemic that we’re in! Good thing we have films (animated films, in particular) to keep us occupied. Let’s take a look at the upcoming animated films set to be released in 2022.

Keep in mind that I’ll only be mentioning films with set (US) release dates and that I won’t be mentioning any live-action/animated hybrid films. Also because the pandemic has shown us that streaming is pretty much a reality that’s not going away anytime soon, I will be including animated films debuting on streaming services as well.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy this list with me!

My Top 13 Favorite DreamWorks Animation Films

It’s about time for another Top 13 list! In preparation for the February U.S. release of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, I decided to rewatch all of the DreamWorks Animation films. DreamWorks Animation, to me, is hit-or-miss, so sometimes it was quite a challenge watching these films. But other times, I quite enjoyed watching these films! Below, I have listed my top 13 favorite DreamWorks Animation films. A few points to keep in mind:

1) This is my personal list of which ones I liked best; it’s not necessarily which ones I think are the best made films. Also this is my list as of now; if you ask me again in the future, this list may change due to personal fluctuations.

2) For personal religious reasons, I haven’t seen The Prince of Egypt nor do I choose to. So don’t be surprised when you see it missing from this list! I’m sure it’s a wonderful film, but I choose not to watch it.

3) I also haven’t seen Joseph: King of Dreams both for personal religious reasons as stated above as well as because it’s a direct-to-video film and I don’t want to compare it alongside the theatrical films.

Now that that’s taken care of, here are my top 13! Hope you enjoy!
