State of the Cinema: June 4 to June 11, 2012

In this new weekly post, I'll tell you everything you need to know about the world of Cinema Won in one simple post.

Extra News (While there isn't any for this week, this is where new stories I didn't talk about earlier will go)

Bonus Movie Reviews (Here I will review movies I saw this past week won't get a full review)
- The Emperor's New Groove- In this mostly forgotten 2000 Disney film, Emperor Kuzco (David Spade) is turned into a llama by evil assistant Yzma (Eartha Kitt) so she can take over the kingdom. Kuzco teams with villager Pacha (John Goodman) and attempts to travel back home and become human again. I remember really liking this one as a kid, so I was a bit disappointed when I re-watched this one. The film is likable enough, but the main style of humor is an odd meta-style. The film often breaks the fourth wall and it rarely ever works. The humor might mostly be a miss, but the characters are good and the kids will love it. The Emperor's New Groove gets 3 and a half stars out of 6.

Upcoming Posts (These I post I plan to, but MAY NOT write in this upcoming week)
- Safe House Review
