Happy Halloween! Skeleton Dance, 8 Bit Army of Darkness

Normally I do music on Saturday night’s, but normally Saturday is not Halloween. So this time around, a couple of classics in honor of the holiday. To make up for the schedule, music will be along very shortly, in honor of the new Abney Park album. The first Halloween video: This is part of Disney’s [...]


The short animation Descendants is a wonderful and touching piece of work, but thanks to the CG Society publishing of the article it is even more than that; it is an excellent tutorial in animation production. When you read the Making Of, you get an understanding of what some of the challenges are in the [...]


This short but quality animation is called No-A and pronounced Noah, and it has a lot of heart for having a robotic protagonist. The team that put it together was lead by Director Liam Murphy, Producer Chloe Mortensen, and Executive Producer Xeon Xai. It has won some awards, and you can get some more details [...]

Something to Do: Movies

There are several interesting choices this week. The Last Witch Hunter is an action fantasy about an immortal witch hunter and his reincarnated most powerful opponent, battling it out in modern times to determine if the human race gets to survive or not.

Something to Watch: Discs

Movies brings the Disney treat Tomorrowland, about the future I always wanted to be a part of, and why we didn’t get it after all. It includes some excellent Tesla references and associations from a secret history of the world, and some great special effects delivered in a non-stop roller coaster ride of a movie. [...]

Something to Do: Movies

This week we get the animated silliness of Hotel Transylvania 2, with an all star voice cast that includes Adam Sandler as Dracula and Mel Brooks as his father, Vlad. There is another comedy worth noting; Intern has Robert De Niro as Anne Hathaway’s Intern in a very interesting movie. As far as I know [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

In Movies I have to consider Big Game a fantasy, even though I don’t think that was the intention of the film makers. The plot has a thirteen-year-old boy armed with a bow and arrows who has to save the President (Samuel L. Jackson) from a group of kidnappers while fleeing across Finland. The trailer [...]
