It’s alliteration a gogo for the announcement of the 40th Annual Annie Awards.
Brave, Wreck-It Ralph and Rise Of The Guardians lead the nominations, with Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman not too far behind. It’s a strong set of nominations for Disney, with John Carter and The Avengers also lurking on the sidelines.
As for who to put your money on in regards to the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, well, I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s a two-horse race between Brave and Wreck-It Ralph.
Check out the full list of nominations (minus anything TV-related) below: Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) is living an easier existence with a steady girlfriend (Huntington-Whiteley) and no Decepticon disruptions. But when a colleague (Jeong) at his new job tells him about the secrets of the Moon Landing to coverup a Cybertronian spacecraft, Sam finds himself in the middle of a race between his Autobot friends and Decepticon enemies to reach it first.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon does exactly what you’d expect. It gives you Shia LaBeouf accompanied by another ridiculously beautiful girlfriend on another crazy adventure with best mate Bumblebee and friends. If you’re looking for mindless action, hot girls and shiny metalwork then you already know this film’s for you. If you’re looking for more, you won’t find it here. Summer blockbuster it is, in-depth and philosophical it ain’t. But hey, why break with tradition. Continue reading
