Movie Review: Zootopia


At its core Zootopia is about stereotypes and how unfair they can be. A "cute" rabbit wants to be a cop, but she's a rabbit and rabbits can't be cops. Well that's what everyone keeps telling Judy Hopps. In an attempt to prove her worth she takes on a case to find a missing otter. With no resources or support from her department she enlists the help of a sly fox, Nicholas P. "Nick" Wilde. He's not a willing participant and Officer Hopps has to make sure he stays motivated to help her. An unlikely friendship is formed and although they don't realize it at first, they need each other.

There are three reasons you're going to want to go watch this movie.
  1. You love talking animals. There is something interesting about seeing animals act like humans. It gives us the right to take an animal's instincts and create characters with human traits that align with those instincts.
  2. You have children. This movie is funny and there is a slow (in a funny way) sequence involving a sloth and the DMV. As a parent I appreciated the irony and the kids found the whole scenario hilarious.
  3. It's not a kid's movie. Yes it might be targeted and marketed toward kids but this movie has plenty for the adults. I'm pretty sure my 7 year old didn't catch the Godfather references.
Is this the best Disney Animated film . . . no, but it's a good cop gets hustled, needs to prove herself, decides to solve a mystery no one has made any progress on, buddy cop movie with talking animals.I can totally see this franchise becoming a series of movies where these partners in justice solve crimes while mayhem ensues around them. You won't be disappointed.

Review: Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling (PS4)

     Paper Mario but with bugs (not the technical kind). Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling makes its inspiration obvious just from looking at a screenshot. The art style pays homage to the Paper Mario series and the rest of the game follows suite. The first two Paper Mario games were traditional paper turn based rpgs, and the series has shifted away from that formula since. Bug Fables sets out to create an experience similar to those early entries in the Paper Mario series. Any fans of the classic Paper Mario games will feel at home playing Bug Fables. Besides the art style, the combat will feel familiar right away. Your party has three characters who will be with you for the entirety of the game. You take turns attacking with each character having their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Each character fares better against specific types of enemies. A unique mechanic this game offers is the ability to give your attack to another character. The penalty is that each subsequent attac
