Despite it falling just short of making our most anticipated 2020 animated films list, The Willoughbys had our interest thanks to its affiliation with streaming giants Netflix. Thanks in part to them we got the masterful Klaus last year so, any new animated films with their involvement deserve some attention. So, does Netflix have another gem on their hands? Here are the critics' views:
Crunchyroll's much advertized 'Originals' (A series of eight anime projects funded by the streaming service) has been off to a great start. The first two releases anime series -In/Spectre and Tower of God- have both been a great watch so far, but, finally, finally the one I personally was most anticipating, The God of High School, is releasing next. Crunchyroll made the announcement yesterday and revealed a new teaser trailer as well:
Next to perhaps the Mortal Kombat series, Grand Theft Auto is arguably the most controversial gaming franchise in history. It is also one gaming most lucrative as the last game in the series GTA 5, still somehow manages to find itself in the top 10 monthly sales chart today despite releasing back in 2013. So, it is no surprise we will be getting a sixth entry in the series.
From big triple-A games like The Last of Us 2 to mega-blockbuster movies like Fast & Furious 9, major creative projects are falling victim to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The world of Animation didn't escape its wrath either as major 2020 animated films such as Scoob!, Minions and The Spongebob Movie all got hit with delays. Now, we can add two more to this unfortunate list as Disney has confirmed that both Pixar's Soul and Raya and the Last Dragon are the latest delayed films.
First up, I won't lie...I had zero interest in this movie. Trolls World Tour is done by wonder studio Dreamworks, which produced some of my favourite animated projects over the years but, the original Trolls movie and this sequel just never grabbed my attention. Well, until now, since the presence of the COVID-19 is forcing me to be at home (for the entire Easter Holiday weekend even), I suddenly have the time to try out new things. So, I am will give the film a chance when it releases this weekend but, is it worth my interest? Here's what the critics had to say in our latest Review Roundup:
Adventure Time made its debut on Cartoon Network during what could be considered as their modern golden era of outstanding shows. By the time its final episode aired, the show had already etched its way into pop culture. Once more, despite it cutesy aesthetics and characters names (like bubble gum princess), many believed that the show had several adult undertones that was meant for a much older audience than the apparent target audience. In step The Midnight Gospel, a new animated show from Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, which based on its first trailer, it's clear that this show is for adults.
