NEW TOY? – Everyone’s favorite pull-string cowboy sheriff Woody, along with his best friends Buzz Lightyear and Jessie, are happy taking care of their kid, Bonnie, until a new toy called “Forky” arrives in her room. According to Forky, a spork-turned-craft-project, he’s not a toy at all—and he’d rather skip this big adventure completely, if only they’d let him. Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack return as the voices of Woody, Buzz and Jessie, and comedian Tony Hale lends his voice to Forky. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Review of COCO – Rated PG – 1 hr 49 mins 

COCO

COCO – Rated PG – 1 hr 49 mins 

Starring the voice talents of Benjamin Bratt, Anthony Gonzalez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Renee Victor and Ana Ofelia Murguia 

Disney and Pixar take us on an unbelievably beautiful adventure in to the culture and heritage of the Mexican people…as we meet the exceptionally talented and very head-strong Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), trying to overcome his families ban on music, as he longs for nothing more than to play his guitar every second of every day…

Drawn to his heritage, but longing to play his music too, Miguel thinks he may have found out his ancestry…and to find out the truth, he must venture into the land of the dead…

As his family searches for him, Miguel is determined to not return from the land of the dead until he knows all of the answers of why he is forbidden to play music, as it comes so natural for him…

When the tales of his ancestors unfold, and he finally meets his musical hero Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt) who has passed away, his family from the past, and here in the present, manage to give him the insight he needs to reach his true calling in life, as he makes his way back into the world of the living… 

I give COCO a rating between MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN and WAIT AND CATCH THIS DISNEY/PIXAR FILM ON DVD: In true DISNEY/PIXAR fashion, even taking an ancestral stroll into the land of the dead can become a beautiful testament to life, and our destiny within it. As you journey into this particular tale of Mexican culture, you will find moments of both sheer delight, and utter sadness, playing out on the big screen. As we have become accustomed to find within many Disney storylines as well, COCO has one of those dark and demented storylines that some children might find a little scary, and very cruel at times. But even with its darker messages throughout, COCO also is one of the most beautifully animated Pixar PIXAR creators have produced. Amongst it’s many frames are some of the most beautiful images they have created thus far. I got a sense along the way that a new ride was put to life within its images for EPCOT in the years to come as well…as this film is perfectly laid out to transition into the latest new attraction within EPCOT’s present Mexican landscape. But even with all its sentimental storylines and exceptionally created beauty of the Mexican landscape, its people, and their beliefs, I still felt that it fell short of a MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN review, because of much of its darker content. And I’m not sure either why Disney didn’t release it here in the US simultaneously with their release in Mexico at Halloween, as it might have given this film a much more palatable tale, being shared at the appropriate time of year…

“#95 is BACK…and you don’t want to miss a minute of it!”                                             Kathy Kaiser, Matinee Chat 

CARS 3 – Rated G – 1 hr. 49 mins. 

Starring the voices of Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Paul Newman, Cheech Marin, Cristela Alonzo, Chris Cooper, Nathan Fillion, Larry the Cable Guy, Armie Hammer, Lea DeLaria, Jenifer Lewis, Kerry Washington, Tony Shaloub, Margo Martindale, John Ratzenberger, Bob Costas, Kyle Petty and Jeff Gordon…and many more! 

As we venture back to the track with our favorite racer Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) for a 3rd time, it seems that his style of racing is obsolete ~ as racers like Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) are hitting the scene, with their new aerodynamic body styles and piston-packed engines.

So what’s a #1 NASCAR Racer to do, but to head back to Radiator Springs to lick his wounds ~ and to get his mojo back ~ as he reminisces about his old mentor, the Hudson Hornet (Paul Newman), and enlists the help of old pals Sally (Bonnie Hunt), Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) and the rest of the gang, to get him back in the game…

Realizing that it’s going to take everything he’s got to get back into the top spot, McQueen journeys to a high-tech, super advanced racing center, filled with everything he’ll need to become #1 again! McQueen quickly finds that even with all the high-tech training, he’s going to need the assistance of a few new friends this time around as well, including his trainer Cruz Ramirez (Crisela Alonzo) and veteran racer and crew chief Smokey (Chris Cooper) too…

I give CARS 3 a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN and in 3D too! Talk about getting your VROOM, VROOM, On – this 3rd installment is as fabulous as the 1st, bringing us back into the life of our favorite NASCAR Racer Lightning McQueen! Back too are all of his pals from the past, and some new super-awesome friends along for this joy ride too! This film will totally Rev-U-Up all along the way…from its perfectly crafted animation, to its perfectly crafted storyline by Writer and Director Brian Fee (he worked as a story board artist on CARS and CARS 2 previously, so they saw fit to put him in the Driver’s seat this time, and oh what a smart move that was!!!) – to hearing the voices of Belleville’s own Lea DeLaria and St. Louis’s own Jenifer Lewis – KACHOW!! – this film made me giddy the whole way through, and is destined to be another CLASSIC DISNEY MATERPIECE (he he) I’m certain too! And the fact that they made this film G-rated speaks volumes as well, as now everyone in the family, from the youngest to oldest, can view and enjoy this latest PIXAR /DISNEY creation. You will find that every minute of this film, from the starting gate to the finish line, is nothing shy of TOTAL PERFECTION!
