Review – Incredibles 2

Fourteen years is a long time between installments within a film franchise and, for most, it would be too much to overcome.  Audiences have relatively short memories and many once-bankable intellectual properties have been met with apathy and disinterest after waiting too long to return to theaters.  Scream, Terminator, and Alien all struggled and ultimately...

#ThrowbackThursday – Finding Nemo

Original US release date: May 30, 2003 Production budget: $94,000,000 Worldwide gross: $940,335,536 I've been a Pixar fan as long as most everyone else has been: since the beginning.  Still, in spite of that, I somehow missed seeing Finding Nemo in the theaters upon its original release.  I still don't really recall how that happened.  I've...
