It's where Fassbender's reputation was built!

Shame seems like a horrible movie and it doesn't help by the allegations of abuse against Fassbender.

I did like him as Magneto and in Prometheus.

It's official. Finding Nemo will have a sequel, Finding Dory, released on November 15, 2015. After Cars 2 I'm very wary of this. Andrew Stanton is directing. The good news is that Stanton directed the first one and he's my personal favourite Pixar director. The bad news is that Stanton pretty much admitted that he made a deal with Disney, allowing him to do more live action films (after John Carter flopped) as long as he made a sequel to Finding Nemo. The composer Thomas Newman is also returning (Finding Nemo had one of my favourite movie scores... goosebumps).

I'm cautiously hopeful. The last time Pixar gave the sidekick the spotlight resulted in much pain, but since Dory is such a better character than Mater, I'm gonna give it a chance.

Ugh, I can't stand Dory... I'm betting the sequel will suck because it's very forced.

If any Pixar movie warranted a sequel (besides Toy Story), it would be the Incredibles. We won't see Brad Bird return to animation for a while though.

Yeah, I heard about Finding Dory. Thing is, I never really give any movie sequel rumors credence until I see an official trailer. Call me strange, but it's just the way I am. *shrug*

Was it worth seeing?

I love Dory, but she isn't a protagonist. I'm hoping Pixar learned their lesson from Cars 2 and won't make her the protagonist. Trouble is, I don't know where else to take Marlin... unless they went with a completely new character.

I don't know if I'm cautiously optomistic or cautiously pessimnistic on this one (kind of like Episode VII Wink ). I am excited to see the Finding Nemo world again (especially knowing that Thomas Newman and Andrew Stanton are returning), because it is one of my favourite Pixar movies. However, I can no longer say "Hey, it's Pixar. What could happen?". Cars 2 was bad and although I liked Brave, it wasn't up to Pixar's usual standards. I don't what to think about Monsters University either.

It explored some interesting concepts and had a couple of decent twists. I enjoyed it but I noticed a few glaring inconsistencies which irritated me slightly and raised a few questions. I'd love to hear what anyone else thought of it.

I'll be seeing it when it opens for the US on Friday.

Watched Hunchback of Notre Dame and Atlantis: The Lost Empire last night.

Hunchback is one Disney animated classic that I've seen only two or three times since it came out in theaters in '96. I finally ordered the DVD; it arrived last Wednesday and I've already watched it twice.

It took guts for Disney to do Hunchback since it is a pretty dark film, though not as dark as Black Cauldron. On watching it this time around, I was able to pick up of some of the themes that I completely missed before like

The lighthearted moments throughout keep the film from becoming too dark. The songs are great, particularly "God Help the Outcasts" and the opening "The Bells of Notre Dame." And, of course, the afore mentioned

Among the best lines of dialogue were Esmeralda's "Justice!" after cutting Quasimodo free and Phoebus' short speech after he frees himself from the cage - "He has declared war on Notre Dame herself!" sent chills down my spine, as did Quasimodo's "Sanctuary!" on the balcony after rescuing Esmeralda from the pyre. All in all, Hunchback is a brillant film and now one of my favorites.

Atlantis is another favorite. Yes, the concept may seem cheesy and the animation style a little clunky, but so what? I still think it's a good movie. My favorite scenes included the one in the crystal chamber were Kida is bonded to the Heart of Atlantis: the music there is quite intense. I absolutely love the converstaion between Milo and the King just before he dies; I didn't realize until I looked up the cast list that Leonard Nimoy voiced the King. He is quite simply one of the greatest actors ever.

For those Hellboy fans, Mike Mignola worked on the art design for Disney's Atlantis.
