Critically Acclaimed: Mars Needs Moms and Spirited Away

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? You'll find out on this week's CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED! Plus, we've got new reviews of THE GRINCH, OVERLORD, THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB, OUTLAW KING and THE NEW ROMANTIC!
