jurassic-world

In a January article by Gabbing Geek’s own Ryan Garcia, he predicted the 2015 Top Ten Grossing films (domestic).  Rule of thumb says that to crack the top ten,  a film will need to surpass $200M+. Some of Ryan’s picks were right.  Some were wrong.    Where will we wind up and what could spoil Ryan’s top ten list?

How Inside Out Should Have Ended

We here at Gabbing Geek loved Inside Out.  It was a creative, fun, and occasionally heartbreaking take on growing up.  Poor Jenny still gets a little misty if the name “Bing Bong” comes up in conversation.

But what if the movie went differently, especially for Bing Bong?  The folks at “How It Should Have Ended” took a shot at that.  Video behind the cut, and it does have SPOILERS for the movie if you haven’t seen it, so you’ve been warned.

Trailer Time: The Good Dinosaur

Pixar hit the jackpot recently with Inside Out.  The studio had been doing a movie a year, but took last year off to fix a couple things, which means we’re getting another Pixar film for Thanksgiving!  Will The Good Dinosaur be as good as Inside Out?

Well, probably not.  Inside Out was just about perfect.  But there’s a trailer after the cut.

Why Inside Out Is Not A Kids Movie!

Inside Out returns Pixar to a place it hasn’t been in a long time in terms of sheer quality.  The originality and character design, in the service of a great story, can remind viewers what quality craftsmanship for family entertainment can be.  There’s material in there that is appropriate for children, while being sophisticated enough to entertain the adults stuck watching it with them.

Can’t say that about The Smurfs, can you?

But after seeing the movie, I have to say, I don’t think this movie is aimed much at children.  Children can certainly enjoy it, but the real core of the movie is for their parents.  SPOILERS and explanations after the cut.
