LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS is too epic for its own good (review)

Rating:  (Mediocre)

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole intends to be an epic, like Lord of the Rings for families. On paper, it has enough slow-mo shots, big fights, evil villainny, and travel to be such a story. On film, it falls short. While beautifully animated and intimately detailed, this adventure tries so hard to be epic that it's kind of a bore. And don't even get me started on the science of it all, or lack thereof.

Is TOY STORY 3 about the Holocaust? Existentialism? Marxism? Maybe it's all about sexual inadequacy?

Everyone's abuzz about Toy Story 3. It's Pixar's best reviewed film yet (98% on RT) and earned a hefty $109 million in its opening weekend, beating out Pixar's previous launch record of $71 million with The Incredibles. If you haven't seen it yet, get to the theater. I recommend IMAX 3D (regular 3D isn't as good), but see it on a big screen either way. It's fantastic. That said, some people have conjured up some unique interpretations of the series. Spoilers ahead!
