Movie Review: HOME. Unmemorable & Generic

Home is cute and cuddly, sure, it's quirky and very bubbly. It's bathed pastels and has a shiny plastic feel. The quick laughs and familiar story should make it easy for the film to endear itself, but its that familiarity that makes it unmemorable and generic. The story of a pair of misfits from different worlds coming together is nothing new, and unfortunately Home doesn't bring anything to the table that would set it apart from its predecessors which were much better done. After a hive-minded alien race called the Boov conquer the Earth, they relocate the planet's human population -- all except for a little girl named Tip (Rihanna), who's managed to hide from the aliens. When Tip meets a fugitive Boov called Oh (Jim Parsons), there's mutual distrust. However, Oh is not like his comrades; he craves friendship and fun. After a potentially fatal mistake, Oh finds himself on the run from his own people. As their distrust fades, the pair set out together

DreamWorks Animation Posts Massive Loss

The studio reports a crushing fourth quarter loss. Story by Matt Cummings Apparently, not everyone loved DreamWorks Animation's Penguins of Madagascar and Mr. Peabody and Sherman as much as we at SJF did. Although both films made nearly $300 million each, it apparently wasn't enough to offset costs related to their production and distribution, prompting the company to take fairly drastic action to stay afloat. On Tuesday, DWA announced not only a fourth quarter loss of $247 million, but also plans to sell/lease their Glendale, CA office, lay off 500 employees, and make changes to their film release strategy. The writing seemed to be on the wall early in 2014, when Mr. Peabody and Sherman opened to lackluster numbers and reviews, something that surprised us but ultimately made some sense. With zero connection to younger audiences, Peabody seemed like a gamble that parents weren't willing to take, even though CinemaScore gave it a very favorable A. When

DreamWorks Animation Hits Hard Times

How Bad Are The Financial Troubles? Story by David Clark Ever since movies like Toy Story invaded theaters around the nation animation films have been a staple of the entertainment industry. They are the type of films that an entire family can sit down and enjoy together. They are often funny, clever, well written, and offer a little something for everybody. Names like Pixar, DreamWorks Animation, and Illumination Entertainment have been at the forefront of the animated style. This past week it has become apparent that one of the staple studios named Dreamworks Animation has fallen on difficult financial times. Do not tell the children, but the studio that brought the world Shrek and How to Train Your Dragon might be a distant memory in the next few years. Due to a series of box office disappointments DreamWorks Animation announced a downsizing operation that will see at least 500 employees laid off from all levels of the company. It was also announced that the c

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Review

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Review By: Matt Cummings Mr. Peabody & Sherman satisfies everyone's need for heartwarming animated fare.  Among the early entries into American animated television, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show represented the closest thing to high-brow entertainment. A trio of weekly animated shorts, the show began airing in the late 1950's, and followed the adventures of an oddly-paired squirrel and moose. Nestled somewhere between that and Boris and Natasha was the time-travel historical skit Mr. Peabody & Sherman , which arrives this week into theaters. The result is a welcomed relief from the explosion-filled manliness of late Winter, and might even tug at your heartstrings. The smartest person in the world is no human, but the dog Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell ), a canine of industry, adviser to heads of state, accomplished musician and a top chef. His adopted son Sherman (voiced by Max Charles ) forms a duo that travels th
