Dog’s Movie House: “Luca” Another Pixar Gem!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Pixar’s latest film. It’s another winner; a charming animated fable called “Luca” and it has the hallmarks of another Pixar classic, combining elements of mythology with a charming Italian atmosphere, along with relatable characters, stunning animation and a story that will please both children and adults.

Dog’s Movie House: “Soul” and “Wonder Woman” Entertaining Way To Start The New Year!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here back after a couple of weeks of holiday mirth-making (subdued though it may be) to jump back in to the movie swimming pool. The end of the year brought us two blockbusters that would normally be released directly into theaters but because of circumstances are getting sent to the streaming services. “Wonder Woman 1984” after several delays got released simultaneously into theaters and HBO Max and Pixar’s latest “Soul” went directly to Disney Plus. It’s a shame these two films can’t be seen on the big screen because both are fine pieces of entertainment, with “Soul” being one of Pixar’s finest in the last few years.Continue reading

Dog’s Movie House: “Coco” An Inspiring, Imaginative Concoction From Pixar!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog!

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: “Cars 3” Lovable End To Cars Trilogy!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog!
Pixar’s Cars franchise has always been considered the acclaimed studio’s red-headed stepchild. While the animation has always been top-notch, many felt the storytelling was more simplistic than classic Pixar fare like “Toy Story,” “Up,” and “Inside Out.” I find myself in that camp as well, but unlike some of my colleagues I very much enjoy the Cars films for what they are: wonderful cartoons designed primarily for kids. In the case of “Cars 3,” Pixar has decided to forget the Mater-centric “Cars 2” doesn’t exist and bring a nice, sentimental conclusion to the story of legendary racer Lightening McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson).
