The Kenblog: “Disneyland” During A Simpler Time!

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

 

I have a deep and abiding love for all thing Disney.  I am especially fond of Disneyland and all of the classic attractions I remember enjoying as a kid, when my grandparents and my parents first let me experience “The Happiest Place On Earth.”  That said, Disneyland was going strong by the time I visited for the first time.  My mother and her folks actually went the year it opened and I still remember Mom’s recollections of her first theme park experience.  Now, thanks to my brother’s intrepid searching of YouTube, I have for you celebrity coverage of the opening day of Disneyland in 1955 in glorious, non-HD black and white!   Enjoy and feel free to comment below!  So Sayeth The Kendog!  Continue reading

The Trailer Dog Park: “Avengers: Infinity War” Is Here!

 

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

 

 

Well after a whole lot of hype Marvel Studios “Avengers: Infinity War” has finally dropped its first trailer.  It’s broken records and you’ve probably seen it already, but I’m including it here because I think it’s a well-done teaser for one of the most anticipated movies next year.  For my two cents I believe the trailer to be the perfect sort of teaser showing just enough to stoke anticipation without giving the whole damn story away.  “Infinity War” is shaping up to be the total tent-pole event “Justice League” tried to be.  WB Studios should take note: the Marvel formula may have a few hiccups involved but there is something to be said for every filmmaker having a unified vision while still being able to push some of the creative boundaries of the comic book film.  If Warner Brother’s wants to compete with Marvel with their DC license, then they need to take the reigns off their filmmakers and concentrate on letting them make good movies.  Then, only then, can the studio start to construct a proper shared universe.  Enjoy the trailer and feel free to comment below!  So Sayeth The Kendog!

Dog’s Movie House: “Coco” An Inspiring, Imaginative Concoction From Pixar!

Inhabitants of The Land Of The Dead In Pixar’s “Coco”

 

 

 

I’ve been told on more than one occasion by colleagues that the bloom is officially off the rose at Pixar.  While it’s true that some of their offerings haven’t been as bold and originally as some of their earlier films (I’m looking at you “Cars 3”) the studio continues to put out solid, wonderful entertainment with only the occasional misfire (“The Good Dinosaur).  It’s a record any studio, animated or otherwise, would be proud to have.   That said, Pixar has always been at it’s best when pushing original material and in “Coco” Pixar proves once again that it’s the best in the business when it comes to multilayered animated films.

Dog’s Movie House: “Justice League” Sloppy, But A Lot Of Fun!

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman leads “The Justice League”

 

 

After the runaway success of “Wonder Woman” DC fans were optimistic about the state of their cinematic universe.  Released to near universal acclaim and wonderful box office, and Amazonian superhero served as a shot in the arm for the divisive DC extended universe.  Now director Zach Snyder is back (with an assist from “Avengers” helmer Joss Whedon) for his third go-round in the cinematic arena he created with “Man Of Steel.”  This time we get “Justice League,” a team-up of superhero icons such as Superman, Batman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman.  The bad news: the film is a narrative mess, with some dodgy effects and the fingerprints of studio interference all over it.  The good news:  there is enough Snyder, Whedon, and company get right the most of crap doesn’t matter, making “Justice League” a highly entertaining film.

The Kenblog: “How Do You Watch Films With Disgraced Stars?”

 

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

Disgraced Producer Harvey Weinstein

 

 

 

 

It seems like every since Harvey Weinstein was revealed to be a first class sexual assaulter that the floodgates have opened.  Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Jeffrey Tambor, and even Sylvester Stallone have been placed solidly in the crosshairs of the social justice machine with an explosion of women (and men) coming forward to accuse these people of various degrees of sexual assault.  And let’s not even get started with the politicians (Judge Moore and Al Franken, I’m looking at you.).
