What’s the best way to escape the summer heat? Going to the movies! Seriously. It’s dark, they’ve got the AC cranked up to subzero temperatures, and there’s all sorts of cold drinks and ice cream. What’s not to love!? With that in mind, it’s no wonder that studios save their heavy hitters for these hot ‘n’ humid months, thus creating a movie sub-type all its own: The Summer Blockbuster.
Steven Spielberg is widely credited for spawning the genre, with the success of Jaws in 1975. Since then, the biggest flicks and franchises of all time tend to come out around this season. Harrison Ford is arguably the Summer Blockbuster king, with lead roles in both the Star Wars and the Indiana Jones series! We’ve got superheros like Batman and Spiderman, and family friendly animation classics like Finding Nemo and The Lion King. Yup, pretty »

It’s hard to think of a studio more singularly adored than Pixar Animation Studios, the creators of “Wall-e,” “Toy Story” and “Finding Nemo.” Of course, they weren’t always everybody’s favorite. The studio started out as an experimental, computer-based component to George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic effects house, one that Lucas had so little faith in that he promptly sold the team to Apple founder Steve Jobs, who looked at Pixar as a well to sell sophisticated graphics processors (the initial short films that created so much buzz and attention were supposed to serve as mere tech demonstrations). The artists at Pixar, however always had one clear goal in mind: a feature-length animated movie, groundbreaking in the same ways Walt Disney’s “Snow Whit and the Seven Dwarfs” was way back in 1937. Pixar accomplished this (with Disney’s help) in 1995 with “Toy Story” and since then have gone »

The trouble with tackling mental illness in film (or television) is that mental illness itself is a serious, often debilitating issue. Film can be a great medium to broaden awareness of a disorder but it can also be damaging or down right ridiculous. It’s very tempting for film makers to latch on to a mental health disorder to give characters depth or add drama to a situation but either it turns out as a beautiful portrayal or downright stupid.
Hey this character has gone a bit crazy, does not a good drama make.
In my opinion, television is the medium that often nails this, as it allows the opportunity to take the time establishing the situation and lets the audience devote the time they need to observe the character(s) and their situation. For me, one of the best portrayals at present would be Claire Danes performance in Homeland »

5- Finding Nemo (2003)
A heartbreaking and heartwarming movie about clownfish, 2003’s Finding Nemo had audiences glued to the screen. A story about a son taken from his father, and the lengths a dad would go to save his only child, Finding Nemo was a fast favorite. Exploring both life under water, and unlikely relationships, this film still had fans begging for a sequel ten years later. Much to everyone’s excitement, Disney and Pixar have finally listened to our plea and a Finding Dory is slated to come out in 2015.
4- Monsters Inc. (2001)
Who doesn’t remember being afraid of the monster in the closet when they were a kid? Worried that just as you were about to fall asleep, it would pop its gruesome head out and come for you in the night. Well according to 2001’s Monsters Inc. that’s exactly what happens.

Hard to believe it's been a full 10 years since Disney and Pixar released "Finding Nemo" (on May 30, 2003). That means that you and your kids (or you and your parents) have watched it on DVD approximately, oh, seven bazillion times. Even among Pixar's stellar slate of movies, the underwater adventure has been a standout, an instant classic, and one of the most popular animated features ever made.
Still, there may be a lot you don't know about "Nemo," like where the idea for the film came from, or how some of the stranger underwater sound effects were generated, or who some of the surprising cast members are (and aren't). Read on for these and other revelations from the deep.
1. Writer/director Andrew Stanton's inspirations for "Finding Nemo" were a childhood memory of a fish tank in a dentist's office and a visit to the Six Flags Marine World park with his five-year-old son. »

Planes started out as a direct-to-dvd release but, much like how Pixar's John Lasseter once rescued Toy Story 2 from that fate, it will be getting a full theatrical release. You can see the latest trailer below.
The film takes place in the same cinematic universe as Cars, this time following their airborne cousins. It follows the aptly named Dusty (he's a cropdusting aeroplane) who must overcome his fear of heights to compete in a famous aerial race. A good ol' underdog story, as one of the trailer's characters says.
Planes is directed by Klay Hall and written by Jeffrey M. Howard, with the voice talents of Val Kilmer (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld), Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives), John Cleese (A Fish Called Wanda), Dane Cook (Dan In Real Life), Brad Garrett (Finding Nemo) and Cedric the Entertainer (Ice Age).

Tinseltown’s love of all things prehistoric continues to romp forward. Twenty years since Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park advanced cinema technology and brought the terrifying creatures to the big screen, we still can’t get enough as this latest domestic trailer for Walking With Dinosaurs 3D is here to keep audiences poised for further dinosauric action.
Following on from last month’s international trailer, Fox have crafted a new preview for U.S. audiences. Adding on a voiceover appears to be an attempt to make the film more palatable. It spoon feeds the film to viewers. Fair play to Fox. They’re keen to capture a youthful audience who force their parents to watch all four Ice Age movies incessantly on repeat.

Pixar’s return to the world of monsters this summer is pretty much guaranteed to be a big hit, among newcomers to the franchise and old fans alike. It’s one we’ve been waiting for for a while now, and Monsters University has definitely been shaping up nicely in the past year or so.
The studio recently announced that they will continue their tradition of opening their latest animated hit in the UK at the Edinburgh International Film Festival as the Family Gala, where it is sure to go down a treat amongst festivalgoers. And with just under a month to go before its release on the other side of the Atlantic, the first clip has debuted over at Yahoo Movies, giving us a great little look at the banter we can expect between future best friends, Mike and Sulley.

It's a big week for blue characters in TV and film. On Monday, "X-Men" director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Jennifer Lawrence in her full blue glory, done up for her role of Mystique in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and this weekend, "Arrested Development" character Tobias Fünke who famously "blue" himself returns with Netflix's release of new "Arrested Development" episodes.
Blue-hued characters have held a special place in pop culture for decades, inexplicably appearing far more often than their counterparts from the rest of the color wheel. Take a spin through a brief history of blue characters below.
The Smurfs may be the most famous blue characters, making their mark in their comic strip, television series, and film.
