Emotional Story Draws Director Marc Forster to Disney's “CHRISTOPHER ROBIN”

Marc Forster, the acclaimed director known for his eclectic range of films—including “Finding Neverland,” “Quantum of Solace” and “The Kite Runner”—now returns to direct Disney’s heartwarming live-action adventure “Christopher Robin” starring Ewan McGregor and Haley Atwell. Foster grew up loving Disney live-action films and was immediately drawn to the story of “Christopher Robin.” It had a sense of magic realism, and he believed it had the potential to become an artistic, emotional, funny and timeless film.   Disney’s “Christopher Robin” brings the timeless charm and nostalgia of A.A. Milne’s stories and characters to the big screen in an imaginative tale about the joy and purity of youth. Speaking to the child in all of us, the film is a gentle reminder to let some of those qualities infuse our adult lives. “ Translating a lovely, simple story with an uncomplicated, targeted message into a feature film can make one’s own life a better experience for the effort,”

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara Robin (voiced by Scott Menville) is being tired of being labeled as a side-kick and calling his team as a complete joke. In order to gain a respectable reputation, Robin wants to have a movie of their own. However, he must convince Director Jade Wilson (Kristen Bell) that he deserves to have their own movie franchise and in order to do that, they need to find an arch-nemesis. Soon, the group crossed their path with Slade (Will Arnett) who has a dark diabolical plan of his own and thinking he could be the answer to their problem, Robin and his friends try to stop him and save the day.  Honestly, I haven't watched a single episode, but I was surprised that this turned out pretty good from start to finish. The humor was just spread out neatly throughout, and I can't help myself from enjoying the entire thing while enjoying a tub of popcorn. It clearly has a lot of cylinders to entertain, and obviously they succeeded in all aspects. It is hard to st
