People like lists. They like items to be ranked in order of quality. However, this system does not apply to everything, such as: listing one’s own children, Cold Stone Ice Cream combinations and Pixar films. There are no “bad” Pixar movies, but I can use maybe a finger or two to count the lesser ones.
That’s right, the legendary magazine that filled so many childhoods with outrageous pranks, innovative humor and a reporting dog is producing new content. If this isn’t sparking any memories, Buzzfeed is here to remind us why we loved Nick Mag. Thanks, Buzz.
Nick Mag made its first splash in 1993 and enjoyed 13 years old publication before it quietly disappeared from newsstands in 2009.
This movie looks very stylized and abstract, yet not so abstract that it is jarring to look at (unlike Studio 4°C’s Mind Game). The first thing that I noticed watching the trailer is how fluid and aesthetically pleasing the animation is.
The courtroom can be a cold place, as both Disney and The Snowman creator Kelly Wilson know. In March of 2014, Wilson sued Disney after noticing substantial similarities between his aforementioned short film and a trailer for Frozen. Now, the suit has been settled.
Watch this comparison video and see if you notice any similarities:
Okay, so there’s a snowman in each video who’s being harassed by an animal, resulting in nose difficulties. Also, it seems the concept is nearly identical. What do you think? Any other major similarities that you see? Did Disney actually steal Wilson’s storyline for their Frozen trailer?
Maybe we should just let it all melt, and then there won’t be any snowmen to worry about.
Anime News Network recently published an article called “How to Conquer One Piece” and I had to laugh. One Piece is an anime series about a pirate exploring basically everywhere on Earth’s oceans. It is around 700 episodes long–and not over yet.
700 episodes… Take that in for a second. To catch up, you would have to watch 10 straight days of this show. No sleep, no work, no whatever. If anyone has ever done this, my goodness. You, sir or madame, need a a medal; rather, a hunk of gold.
Inside Out did not disappoint. The Animation Curation team checked out the film today to see what all the hype was about and came to the conclusion that Inside Out is a one of Pixar’s best works due to its imagination world-making, excellent symbolism in each scene, relatability and lasting impact.
In the world of Inside Out, each person is controlled by a range of emotions (Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust) in characterized form, living in that person’s head. The actions of these emotions are commanded by a control panel, operated by the emotions themselves. If Joy controls a situation, then the person will respond positively to a situation. If Fear controls, the person will be cautious toward a situation. Not only is this system wildly creative, it is very believable.
