Moana

Over the years Disney has produced some of the greatest animated films ever. And this year they may have given us one of their best. A heartfelt and fun family film. The music is incredible, and the story is awesome.

Moana tells the story of an island “princess” named Moana, voiced by Auli’i Cravalho, who is destined to be more than just her village’s Chief as her father wants her to be. Her grandmother supports her and with her motivation she sails off to find the great Demi God Maui, voiced by The Rock, and force him to set the world right. Along their adventure they are forced to deal with pirates, and having to learn to work together to restore the world.

The cast is absolutely phenomenal! Auli’i Cravalho is a new comer whose name I cannot pronounce, however we all better learn it, and learn it well. Because she is a star. Not only an incredible singing voice, but she brings this character to life through her personality. She had a pretty big task ahead of her. For this movie rest on her shoulders, and her ability to go toe to toe with The Rock. The Rock is one the biggest forces in the world right now. And he truly shines as the Demi God Maui. While when he first comes on scene you hear The Rock, by the time his musical number concludes, he is Maui. These two are incredible together.

The story is pretty paint by numbers, however they do such a good job with the characters that you don’t really notice the usual Disney Tropes. The journey through the story is so well done, that it doesn’t truly hurt the film. The musical numbers are used in such a way to push the story forward and give you great exposition that could’ve come off as unwanted. But because they are so well written they make the story work.

Speaking of the music, it is absolutely incredible. While the film came out awhile back and I am a little late to the party, I am surprised we did not get “Let It Go-ed” with a few of these different musical numbers. I came out loving nearly every song. Immediately YouTubing the songs they are some of the catchiest numbers Disney has ever given us.

The visuals are absolutely stunning! Some of the shots on the ocean I could not believe that they were animated. It was beautiful. Made me want to go to a beach and forget this crazy city life I live. The characters were all done with great detail and fit to their voices so well.

I had a few issues with the film, most of them being a random musical number done by a giant sparling crab voiced by Jermaine Clement. The number and scene just did not seem to fit in the film and I was kind of taken out of it. Another issue I had was with I felt to be a random pointless character. Heihei, Moana’s pet rooster, who even director Ron Clements described as “the dumbest character in the history of Disney animation.” I really feel the film wouldn’t be missing a thing if that character had just been taken out altogether. Or maybe replaced by Moana’s other pet, a little pig.

Other than that the film is so much fun, and I truly enjoyed the music and story. I am giving Moana a score of 3.9 with a .4 bonus for the music. That gives it a Jeebus Score of 4.3! Now I ask you Jackass Nation, have you seen Moana yet? What is your favorite Disney song! Sound off in the comments below! And remember, It Is What It Is!

The Jeebus Score explained

The Jeebus score is out of a possible 5 points with a .5 bonus. Films are giving a max of 1 point each for Entertainment Value, Story/Writing, Performance, Direction, and Production. There is also a possible bonus up to .5. Any film between 2.5 and 4 is considered a good film. 4-5 is a great film. Anything over 5 is an incredibly amazing film. To get a perfect score of 5.5 a film will pretty much have to be The Empire Strikes Back or The Godfather.

The London Sanctorum has fallen, I am here to Bargain

Well Marvel is back at it again. In 2008 they launched Iron Man. At the time a little known B Character to the majority of movie going audiences. And it was a massive hit. In 2011 they brought us Thor. Another unknown hero that once again was a hit. The in 2012 they did something none of us ever thought we would see. They brought together Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye on the big screen in a live action vision of The Avengers. But it did not end there. They made Ant Man a house hold name. And now they look to do the same with another of their long lived, but relative unknown, Doctor Strange.

The new film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton. It is directed by Scott Derrickson. The story follows world renowned neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch). After a tragic car accident he loses the use of his hands. He depletes all his options, until he is shown a new way. A way through the mystical Arts. Strange begins a journey to be the Sorcerer Supreme, but is confronted with an even more powerful being that threatens the fabric of reality.

First off, Marvel has done it again. They have done such a good job at bringing another character to life and into his public eye in a way that the majority of the movie going audiences will be able to get behind! While the history and story behind Doctor Strange is not easy to grasp, the film does very well at bringing it together pretty easy and pretty quickly.

First off the cast is all very functional. No that’s not a bad thing. They all do a great job. They bring the characters to life. What I mean by functional goes along with my thoughts of Thor and Iron Man, when I see RDJ, I see Tony Stark, when I see Hemsworth, I see Thor. I refer to them as those characters. When I see Cumberbatch, I’m still going to refer to him as Cumberbatch. And that is not a knock on him or the film. He is really good in this movie. It’s just not an iconic performance that he disappears into.

There was a lot of controversy behind the casting of Tilda Swinton, and I will say she was great in the role, but again, it was not an iconic performance. You could have casted someone closer to the characters Asian descent. But she was still good in the role. Rachel McAdams was also a good edition to the cast, but my favorite was Benedict Wong. Now he didn’t do anything special, he was just a fun character to have.

Mads Mikkelsen suffers from Marvel Villain disorder. Aside from Loki Marvel villains don’t historically live up to the hype. And Mads’ character suffers from it. He is fine in the role, and it builds to someone else, who I will talk about in my spoiler review on the Jackass Nation Podcast Channel. But the mark out, is Chiwetel Ejiofor. His take on Mordo could be the first and only, villain since Loki to really build on itself. I am excited for where this character goes.

The best thing about this film is the visuals. They are off the chain. It was absolutely stunning. It was really cool in IMAX 3D, and you guys know me; I’m not a fan of 3D. Now I hope to see it again before I record my spoiler review in normal, because I don’t know if it NEEDS to be seen in 3D. But I will say that I enjoyed it. The cinematography, whether it be the fight choreography, or the inceptionish like feel to it, is incredible.

Derrickson was obviously the perfect director for this film. You really feel his touch on it, and has the perfect hint of horror, mixed in with Marvel humor. Marvel does such a good job bringing the right directors in for each of their films. And Derrickson is once again an example of Marvel’s perfection.

While it is definitely not my favorite film in Marvel, it would probably wind up in the lower half, I still really enjoyed. There is no Jeebus Bonus for it, so it’s final Jeebus score is 3.5. But what say you Jackass Nation? Are you excited for Doctor Strange? What is your favorite MCU film? Sound off in the comments below! And remember, It Is What It Is!

The Jeebus Score explained

The Jeebus score is out of a possible 5 points with a .5 bonus. Films are giving a max of 1 point each for Entertainment Value, Story/Writing, Performance, Direction, and Production. There is also a possible bonus up to .5. Any film between 2.5 and 4 is considered a good film. 4-5 is a great film. Anything over 5 is an incredibly amazing film. To get a perfect score of 5.5 a film will pretty much have to be The Empire Strikes Back or The Godfather.
