11/12/2018
More
They say MARS NEEDS MOMS, but what it got was a disaster. This motion-capture animated film cost $150 million, grossed less than $39 million, collapsed a studio, set an entire animation medium back years, and earned a bunch of terrible reviews in the process! Why is it such a dud, and is it really as bad as its reputation? And why is it the perfect double feature with Hayao Miyazaki’s beloved, Oscar-winning classic SPIRITED AWAY?
