Meet The Robinsons travels to far from other Pixar films

Meet The Robinsons (Directed by Stephen J. Anderson) is slightly better than I expected but not by much. This movie was extremely predictable. There were no surprises whatsoever. However there are a few scenes that were cute but still most of it was meh.

Lewis is a brilliant inventor who meets a mysterious stranger named Wilbur Robinson, that whisks Lewis away in a time machine and together they team up to track down the Bowler Hat Guy in a showdown that ends with an unexpected twist of fate. The lines are cheesy. Nothing in this film was really that memorable. The only part that I kind of liked was the T-Rex squealing "'I can't. Cause I have a big head and little arms."

This film was ok. They tried to throw in a few twists but they were completely obvious. If you want to see some really great Disney 3D animations watch Finding Nemo or Monster's Inc.

Twists: C+ Nothing that great

Overall: C A few moments here and there but overall not that great.


I just wanted to let you know that my reviews can be commented on. So you can tell me what I'm doing well on and what I need to improve on. So please feel free to comment.

Enchanted enchants your heart

Enchanted is a cute film that is fun for children and people of all ages. The story of Enchanted is about how an innocent and bubbly princess, Giselle (Amy Adams), falls in to a world that is far more dangerous and obscure than any other universe. NEW YORK! Giselle must somehow find her way back to her kingdom to marry her Prince Edward (James Marsden). Of course having no home to go to, she finds herself staying with a single father and his daughter.

The Movie Enchanted has a lot of parodies from past Disney princess films (Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc.) but somehow finds it way to create an original story. Some jokes though are age appropriate and may offend some parents but overall stays very close to its PG rating. The jokes mostly consist of the weirdness of fairy tale characters blending in with New York which works well for the movie.

Once again Alan Menken was able to produce some excellent original scores plus three Oscar Nominations. The songs are catchy and probably will get your kids to beg you to buy the soundtracks.

Overall, I found Enchanted to be quite enjoyable. At first I thought it'd be Disney trying to rip-off its past success with all the other Disney films but it has it's own way to add its own flavour. Amy Adams performance as the typical Disney princess was absolutely wonderful. I think we can all agree that we will see great things from her in the future.

Cast: B+
All did a good job.

Music: A
Come on it is Disney.

Overall: B
Fun enjoyable to watch and great for a family night.


This is my first blog so I am still new to this. What I plan to do in the future is to write reviews on different movies whether it'd be a classic or a new release. I plan on sticking to videos that are already released rather than a movie that is in theatres. Personally I feel that there are so many other sites that have reviews on new movies. I hope to one day become a professional critic but for now I hope you enjoy my reviews.
