Top 25 Animated Films of the Decade: Part 1

8 Dec

 December 8th, 2009–

The list-athon continues here at Cinematropolis, as we get closer and closer to year’s end. Last week I took a look at the top 15 Asian films of the decade, and today I’ve got animation on the roster. One of the things I learned from the last list, is that 15 is just too brief a number to really capture some of the decade’s best in a given category. I’m a HUGE animation fan and to even suggest that the achievements of the last decade can be distilled into even just 25 choices, let alone 15, is difficult. As it has to be limited, I have settled for a two-part list: one for the first ten, and one for the second, with 5 choices for honorable mention. Altogether that’s 25, and the honorable mentions and numbers 20-11 are up first. Enjoy! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment of Trailer Round-Up. This one is gonna be short and sweet but not lacking in content. Here are some of the latest and greatest trailers buzzing out there on the net.

Of most notice right now is the sneak peak at Sly Stallone’s 80s-charged action flick that brings the Italian Stallon into the orbit of action mainstays like Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and then throws in colorful faces like Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts, Terry Crewes and a hinted at Ahnuld cameo. The trailer itself looks like what you would expect, and chances are it will be all that the fanbase hopes for and everything those waiting for Stallone ‘s return to his indie  roots (ala Rocky)  feared it would be.

Live in Baltimore County and want to catch a free screening of Up! in 3D tonight?

26 May


If you live in Baltimore, or close enough to make it down to the Whitemarsh Theater tonight, then you can follow this link, provided by the Facebook club “I love Free Movie Tickets!’ ( join it, as they offer free screenings all the time) and sign up for yourself and one guest. Then, when you show up at the theater, let the Disney reps know who you are, and you are in. The trick is coming early enough to make sure you will get a seat. I’d suggest showing up at least 40 minutes before showtime, but in this case an hour certainly couldn’t hurt.

If you are interested, follow the link  HERE. It will tell you everything you need to know. Sorry it’s so last minute, but I just found out about this myself.
