Good ol’ Charlie Brown and his loyal pal Snoopy return to our screens in Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie, with calamity still hot on Chuck’s hapless heels in this fresh adaptation of Charles M. Schulz’s beloved comic strip. The perennial underdog (voiced by Noah Schnapp) embarks on his biggest quest yet, endeavouring to overcome his fears in order to pluck up the courage to win the affections of his crush, The Little Red-Haired Girl (Fransesca Capaldi). At the same time, Snoopy (Bill Melendez) launches into his own adventure, writing a book detailing his encounters with arch-nemesis, The Red Baron and his own battle for love, vying for the attentions of the feisty Fifi (Kristin Chenoweth). Facing abundant misfortune along the way but nevertheless succeeding in style, both Charlie and Snoopy convey the importance of daring to dream big and never, ever giving up. For, in his own words, Charlie Brown is no quitter!

snoopy_and_charlie_brown_the_peanuts_movie_ver3Enchanting from beginning to end, director Steve Martino collaborated with Schulz’s son and grandson, Craig and Bryan Schulz, to revitalise the cherished classic while retaining its emblematic wholesome charm. Enhancing the magic of The Peanuts Movie, which marks the 65th anniversary of the comic strip, is the fact that archive recordings allowed for the original voice of Snoopy and Woodstock, Bill Melendez, to posthumously retain his role in the Peanuts family.

Regardless of how many times he falls down, Charlie always picks himself up, dusts himself off and tries again, showing himself to be a true unsung hero. Mirroring Charlie’s charming modesty is the minimalist animation of the film, which was adapted for the pixel-precision of CGI but stays true to the warmth of the original hand-drawn artwork.

The Good Dinosaur

Pixar seem intent on turning full theatres of people to blubbering messes this year, first with Inside Out in the summer and now with the beautiful The Good Dinosaur. An emotive story all about the power of love and the importance of family, this latest offering asks the question what if the asteroid that forever altered life on Earth had missed, allowing the Jurassic era to continue. Well, apparently one very cute Apatosaurus called Arlo (Raymond Ochoa) would have popped up with little arms but big attitude to make his mark in the world.

Following Arlo, the tiny but tough dino who after being separated from his family, battles against the odds to make his way home, Steve Martino’s adventure story teaches that you have to look through your fear to see the beauty on the other side. Arlo and his adorably feisty companion, a feral boy who he names Spot, capture our hearts as they embark on a spiritual journey, discovering that if you aint got fear you aint alive.

The Good Dinosaur reflects a lot of other Disney/Pixar films in a number of ways, such as The Lion King and Finding Nemo. Firstly and most obviously, all of these focus on anthropomorphised worlds, which of course boost their cute charm instantaneously; secondly, all three revolve around father-son relationships; and thirdly, each one centres on families who have been all but torn asunder by tragedy and yet still manage to survive and thrive as a loving unit. The fact that these story elements are time and again repeated and do not detract from the success of these movies is a testament to the animation studios flair for crafting touching tales that speak to audiences on an emotional level , keeping them coming back for more time and again.

Bringing this captivating coming-of-age story to life on the screen is the stunning photorealistic imagery and dazzling CG backdrops. Brimming with the characteristic blend of heart and comedy that the animation studio is beloved for, The Good Dinosaur is sure to touch hearts and tickle ribs as it illustrates how a single moment can change everything.

5/5.

 

Inside Out Movie in SGC Dungarvan

From Friday, July 24th – Find Out More

Inside OutInside the head of each and every one of us live five emotions: Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. These figures see us through every new situation that comes our way; in Riley’s case, this means the big move from her home in the Midwest over to San Francisco. She’s struggling to adapt to her new environment, and neither she nor her parents can figure out what she’s feeling.

Cue the five emotions, who spend their time in Headquarters: the part of Riley’s brain that governs her moods. Joy is usually the one in charge, but with so much going on all around her, it seems that keeping Riley’s spirits up might prove more difficult than they all imagined. Can Joy and the team see Riley through this traumatic time?

From the brains behind such hits as Monsters, Inc. and Up comes this innovative and moving animation about the stuff that goes on within our heads. Starring Amy Poehler, Bill Hader and Kyle MacLachlan, Inside Out is a very special cinematic experience that is a treat for all the family.

From Friday, July 10th – Find Out More

Song of the SeaYears after the death of their mother, Ben and his little sister Saoirse live with their dad in a lighthouse by the coast. Saoirse is a quiet child – in fact, she has never spoken a word, and Ben finds her incredibly frustrating. One night, she goes exploring in the beautiful white coat that used to belong to her mother, and when she approaches the sea, she discovers the mystical secret at the heart of who she is.

Ben and Saoirse’s grandmother becomes worried about the children, and takes them to live with her in the city. But Saoirse’s emotional connection to the sea proves difficult to overcome. Can she stay true to who she really is, or will the distance keep her from herself, and the mother she never knew?

This enchanting film has been nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards, and has received a lot of positive praise since its premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. With a really entrancing soundtrack that captures the spirit of this legend, Song of the Sea is utterly charming, and a real treat for cinema-goers.

AMHRÁN NA MARA
Ag Oscailt 10 Iuil 2015 – Tuilleadh A Fháil Amach

Blianta tar éis bás a mháthair, bíonn Ben agus a dheirfiúir beag Saoirse ina chónaí lena n-athair i dteach solais in aice an chósta. Is páiste ciúin í Saoirse. I ndáiríre, níl sí tar éis focal a rá ariamh, agus bíonn frustrachas ar Bhen faoi seo. Oíche amháin, téann sí ag féachaint thart, agus cóta álainn bán a mháthair uirthi. Nuair a thagann sí cois farraige, tagann sí ar an rúndiamhair a thugann míniú di faoi cé hí féin.
Tagann imní ar Mamó Ben agus Saoirse fúthu, agus tógann sí iad chun cónaí léi sa chathair. Ach ní féidir dlúthcheangal Saoirse leis an bhfarraige a shárú. An féidir léi fanacht dílis di féin, nó an scarfaidh an fhad í uaithí féin agus an máthair nach raibh aithne aici uirthi ariamh?
Bhí an scannán aoibhinn seo ainmnithe don scannán beochana is fearr ag Gradaim an Acadamh, agus tá neart moladh dearfach faighte ag an scannán ó bhí sé léirithe don chéad uair ag Féile Scannáin Idirnáisiúnta Toronto 2014. Le fuaimrian draíochtach a léiríonn go maith spiorad an finscéal, tá Amhrán na Mara íontach mealltach agus mar phléisiúir mór do dhaoine a théann chuig an bpictiúrlann.
