13 modern TV comedies set in the 80s and 90s

Louisa Mellor Feb 16, 2018

To mark the release of Netflix’s 90s-set Everything Sucks!, here are a dozen more recommended nostalgic comedies…

The 90s felt so good that some of us never left. We’re still there, wearing Converse All-Stars, drinking blackcurrant Hooch and listening to Natalie Imbruglia. When we zone out in the monthly budgetary planning meeting, we’re doodling band logos and daydreaming about Alicia Silverstone in that Aerosmith video.

Song of the Sea review – beautiful and entrancing animation

This magical, exquisite feature about a boy living on a remote Irish island uses bravura design and storytelling to convey a subtle and meaningful story

Like The Secret of Kells, director Tomm Moore’s first feature, Song of the Sea blends Celtic legends, bravura design and animation, and intelligent storytelling that understands but never patronises young viewers, to create an exquisite and rewarding work. In a vaguely 20th-century Ireland, pugnacious young Ben (voiced by David Rawle of Moone Boy) lives on a remote island with his lonely lighthouse-keeper father (Brendan Gleeson) and six-year-old kid sister Saoirse, a mute who, like the children’s lost mother, is a half-human, half-seal selkie.

Film Review: Breathless Beauty Within Animated Wonder ‘Song of the Sea’

Chicago – Just in time for its potential win of the “Best Animated Feature” Oscar this Sunday, the Irish animated film “Song of the Sea” opens this weekend at Chicago’s Music Box Theater. A grab-bag myth come to storytelling life, this film is vitalized by its gorgeous animation as much as the heart within its narrative.

An accomplishment that would make the likes of Hayao Miyazaki proud, “Song of the Sea” is a gift to fans of animation.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

This animated treasure from the “Secret of Kells” director Tomm Moore is an original story, but based on the Irish folklore of Selkies, creatures that live as seals in the sea, but humans on land. Moore angles his Selkie tale to focus on themes of humans dealing with burrowed grief. In “Song of the Sea,” a father (Conor, voiced by Brendan Gleeson) cares for his children, his pre-teen Ben (David Rawle

‘Song of the Sea’ Review: Another Breathtaking, Folkloric Triumph

Song of the Sea is a film as light as the wind, and as swift. As airy as the Gaelic song which rides above its plot like a mystical zephyr visiting from another world, it’s a unique fairy tale even among the many supernaturally inclined animated features that have entranced us this year. The Boxtrolls is more aggressively outrageous, The Tale of Princess Kaguya more overtly theosophical. Tomm Moore’s Irish rhapsody of shape-shifting and age-old lore is special because of both its narrative restraint and its visual ambition, an occasionally overwhelming object of color and light with a deceptively modest plot. The film begins with a beautiful family and a sudden tragedy. Moore presents the young Ben (David Rawle), his father (Brendan Gleeson) and his mother (Lisa Hannigan) as the only family in the world. As they await the arrival of their second child, their idyllic lives are painted by Moore with the sort of

Song of the Sea Is a Beautifully Rendered Children's Tale

Tomm Moore's touching Song of the Sea is not anime, but it shares elements with some of the best anime films of recent years, particularly Mamoru Hosoda's Wolf Children. Then again, certain kinds of legends pop up in every culture. In this iteration, young Saoirse (Lucy O'Connell) was born on the night her mother, Broanch (Lisa Hannigan), disappeared into the waves surrounding their lighthouse home. After their father, Conor (Brendan Gleeson), sends the seemingly mute Saoirse and her brother Ben (David Rawle) away for getting too close to the mystery — Saoirse is half-Selkie, a woman who's human on land but a seal in the ocean — the brother and sister must travel back to the ocean to save Saoirse's life and possibly all of humanity, discoverin...
