Something to Stream: Flip Flappers

Flip Flappers is the most visually interesting anime of the new season, as well as being more than a little surreal. It compares favorably with Gurren-Lagann, FLCL (pronounced Fooly Cooly), and Paprika, at least so far. We will have to see if the story can grow as amazing as the visuals, like the other three […]

Trollhunters trailer

The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters project is out, and it is tasty. The animation work is by Dreamworks, so you know it is good, and the voice cast is world class, and includes Kelsey Grammer and Ron Perlman. The main character Jim was voiced by the late Anton Yelchin, at least for […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The re-imaging of Ghostbusters becomes available this week, starring four very gifted and funny women. Approaching the Unknown is a story about the first mission to Mars, which in this version has a single expedition member. The most recent iteration of The Legend of Tarzan was a solid example of the franchise, but it just […]

Something to Stream: RWBY Volume 4

RWBY Volume 4 premieres October 22nd, with the reconstituted Team Ruby up to their necks in monster mayhem and the original team members scattered across the land. Volume 3 ended in a serious cliffhanger, with a lot of mental, physical, and emotional trauma, and unresolved plot threads out the wazoo. It seems like I have […]

Ghibli Does Zelda

This could be what it would look like if Studio Ghibli made a version of Legend of Zelda, and if that ever happened I would be in the theater on opening day! It was created by fan artist/animator/gamer Matt Vince in the UK. Thanks to Tor Online for the heads up on this one.

New Moana trailer

The teaser had me promising to be in the theaters for this one, now that I have seen the third full trailer of Moana there is no doubt where I will be this Thanksgiving. Both the artwork and the CG animation look excellent, and I have already seen enough just from the trailers to know […]

Beauty and the Beast As Told By Emoji

Disney has been having a lot of fun redoing various classic tales of theirs As Told By Emoji, so just for grins and giggles I thought I would post one here. Posted just 2 days ago, it already has more than 350,000 views.

Max Steel

Max Steel has Max McGrath getting together with the alien cyborg/robot Steel to combine into a superhero. The human doesn’t have a clue, the Borg’s awareness is unresolved, but when they combine good things happen. Yes, this all is based on a game from the last century, but it has some serious amusement value.

Something to Do: Movies

The animated feature film The Wild Life is the story of Robinson Crusoe as told by the Parrot and other animals who were living on the deserted island at the time. It looks quite amusing, and I expect to be in the theater for it. The other film this week is Demon, about a bridegroom […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Movies have the live action version of The Jungle Book hits the shelves this week, bringing home the latest incarnation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic story. TV’s Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Two really ramps up the action in the animated battle for the fate of the galaxy. Anime did better this week with When Supernatural […]
