Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015)

Aardman's Shaun the Sheep Movie is a miraculous thing. It's an animated movie that embraces true physical humor, as the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton once did. It is, in essence, a silent movie, with no spoken words. Characters grunt and mumble and make verbal noises, and these noises often indicate intent or emotion, and there are a few pop songs, but not one actual word is spoken. read more...

Paddington 2 (2018)

Paul King's Paddington (2015) was so surprisingly wonderful and such an unlikely hit that it seemed nearly impossible for a sequel to be any good. Yet Paddington 2 currently holds a Rotten Tomatoes record, with a perfect 100% rating based on 172 reviews. (Now it will be 173; in full confession, my son and I skipped the press screening of Paddington 2 and we only caught up with it later after we saw the reviews.) read more...

Mary Poppins (1964)

At her most startlingly beautiful here, Julie Andrews does not play the chipper, loving nanny people might expect or remember. She carefully layers a distantly dangerous and even spooky side to her character, similar to Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka role five years later. The story is about super-nanny Mary Poppins (Andrews), who turns up to take care of a young girl and her younger brother in turn-of-the-century England. read more...

Minions (2015)

It was a good idea to make spinoff films of Puss in Boots (2011) and Penguins of Madagascar (2014), because those characters were the only funny things in the Shrek and Madagascar movies. But this is not the case with the Minions in the terrific Despicable Me movies. Funny stuff is happening everywhere in those movies, and the Minions are sort of left to their own devices, doing silly little things in the midst of the bigger picture. Making them the big picture and giving them their own story stretches things a little thin, and Minions only sporadically works. It traces their existence on earth since the beginning of time, always looking for an evil master to serve. (This idea alone is pretty weak.) By the 1960s, they are living in a cave and have lost sight of their goal, until Stuart, Kevin and Bob go looking for a new boss. Their travels take them to a villain convention in Florida, where they meet Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). She agrees to give them the job if they'll steal the Queen of England's crown. Weirdly, Bob manages to pull the sword from the legendary stone and becomes king himself. The humor here feels forced, and not even Bullock seems to settle on just how to play the villainous Scarlet. But the animation is solid, and there are a couple of giggles here and there. Despite the shaky foundation for the movie, Minions paid off well, becoming one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time. read more...

Chicken Run (2000)

On the Internet Movie Database's Top 250 List are two films called The Wrong Trousers (1993) and A Close Shave (1995). They've both been there for years, while other movies come and go. For the uneducated, they're Oscar-winning animated shorts starring claymation superstars, Wallace and Gromit. But though they only run half an hour each, they both have a Hollywood big-screen sensibility to them. They build suspense, they're funny and clever, and they culminate in slam-bang chase/action sequences. read more...
