Snarcasm: This WALL-E Theory Makes So Much Sense That It Doesn’t

wall-e theory

Snarcasm is an editorial column I do when I read something so upsetting, I have to publish something snarky and sarcastic about it. Thanks for indulging, and definitely take everything you’re about to read incredibly seriously.

Hi. Fan theories are both the best and the worst. Kind of like people! But you can’t say the same about Pixar’s WALL-E, a triumph of animated cinema about the reckless, capitalist dangers of mankind passively wreaking havoc on the environ—

“Sinister WALL-E fan theory will change the way you watch the sweet Pixar film forever”

Oh, OK. I forgot we were watching this “sweet Pixar film” all wrong. How, exactly, was WALL-E some sort of overtly nice and go-lucky tale, considering all the dystopian apocalyptic subject matter?

Cinemaholics Review: Christopher Robin and The Spy Who Dumped Me

Christopher Robin

Big episode this week. I’m joined by Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to review Christopher Robin, Disney’s latest live-action reimagining of a classic tale. Like most of you, I have fond memories of the Winnie the Pooh characters, so I’ve been quite curious about this new film since it was first announced. The reviews are definitely mixed so far, and I think you’ll hear some of that in this episode. Regardless, we had a great conversation about the film, plus some others like The Spy Who Dumped Me and BlacKkKlansman.

Ask us questions! Our Q&A episode is coming up soon, and we’re keeping track of all your questions. Comment below or send us an email to have your voice heard.

All Three of Pixar’s Billion-Dollar Movies Are Sequels. Now What?

Pixar

From Animation World Network:

Incredibles 2 became just the seventh animated film to cross the $1 billion mark at the global box office. It is Disney’s fifth animated and 18th-ever billion-dollar release and joins Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War as Disney’s third release to reach the $1 billion milestone this year.

Egregious success for Disney in 2018 aside, Pixar is now the first animated studio to release three films with $1 billion worldwide box office. And all three of these films are sequels: Toy Story 3Finding Dory, and now Incredibles 2. And yet people wonder why Pixar continues to make sequels in the first place. Money speaks louder than critics, I suppose.

Special guest Aaron Dicer of SiftPop and CinemaSins joins the show this week to talk about Skyscraper, the latest Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson blockbuster. We also found time to discuss some recent indie releases doing good box office in their own right. There’s the new A24 film Eighth Grade, directed by standup comedian Bo Burnham, and Sorry to Bother You, directed by musician-turned-filmmaker Boots Riley.

Two directorial debuts from two unlikely media personalities. Next week, you can probably expect BILL ACTION’s feature directorial debut.

Question for you: what was your initial reaction after seeing Sorry to Bother You? And if you haven’t seen it, do you plan on checking this one out?
