'Animated Film Review Bits: 2010s'


Kung Fu Panda 2

Released 2011


What I have to say about Kung Fu Panda 2 I could say for any one of the three films in this creative, cultured, and clever trilogy. It's rare enough to get a sequel of this caliber let alone a trilogy this good. The voice cast lead by the captivating Jack Black as the titular Kung-Fu Panda is phenomenal and the animators capture all of Jack Black’s exuberence and manifest it into Panda form. The art direction is incredible and the animation gorgeous.


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse

Released 2018


'Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse is one of the best Marvel films outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 'Into The Spider-verse' won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2018 and rightfully so. Its unique and visually arresting art style only elevates an equally powerful dramatic script. With top notch voice acting, a flurry of humor, and genuine comic book call backs, 'Into the Spider-verse' is a must see for everyone.


Rocco's Modern Life: Static Cling

Released 2019


Rocco's Modern Life: Static Cling' is both a nostalgia trip and a no-holds-barred critique of reboots. Rocco is on top of his game packing a one two punch of sharp hilarity and emotional heft.
