When you hear that a movie has been on the shelf for an extended period, you’d be forgiven for having some doubts regarding its quality.

“Animal Crackers,” an animated film from Blue Dream Studios, might raise some of those questions. The movie – adapted from a graphic novel by Scott Christian Sava – was a collaborative effort between American and Chinese companies and was actually released in China a couple of years ago. However, numerous attempts at domestic distribution fell through in the subsequent years, with Netflix finally taking the reins and releasing it on their service.

It’s too bad, because this film doesn’t deserve the stigma that comes with its lengthy remove. It might not be great, but it’s plenty good enough to have received a theatrical release here. There are a lot of quality pieces here – an exceptional cast, some great music – and while the animation is a bit low-rent and the story is meh, I’ve sat through much worse films that received far more attention.

First installment of trilogy strong in spots, but overlong

Certain films, by their very nature, are doomed to be disappointments.

Director Peter Jackson is once again taking audiences on a lengthy journey through the lands of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth. The director of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy has brought us the eagerly-anticipated first installment of 'The Hobbit.' This film, subtitled 'An Unexpected Journey,' leads off a brand new trilogy based on Tolkien's novel.
