After the release of Finding Dory, here is a video chronicling the evolution of Pixar. Some may think (myself included) that things all started back with Toy Story in 1995 but it actually started a lot earlier with the release of several short films including The Adventures of André and Wally B. in 1984, followed by Luxo Jr., Red’s Dream, and Tin Toy. This video really is an evolution as you can see the quality of the animation improve with the passing of time. This definitely brought back some memories and saw some things that I haven’t seen before.
Season 3 of Penny Dreadful and also the series concluded on Sunday night. There won’t be any spoilers here. If you haven’t watched any episodes this season, I have shared all my past Season 3 posts below. I’ll just say that you don’t know what you’re missing as this last season was probably the best one. Of course I wish that I could have gone longer but I can kind of understand why it ended where it did. If you would like to read the thoughts of the series creator, John Logan, on why he chose to end the series after 3 seasons, click here. The last episode did provide a serviceable finale, wrapping up most characters’ (I did say no spoilers) storylines nicely, so even if they chose to continue the series, it would be a little tricky to figure out where to go from it.
If you are unsure about the movies coming out this week on DVD/Blu-Ray, maybe my reviews can help.
