Review: “Summer Wars” Is a Digital Delight

by Neo Yion February 3, 2017
One of my fondest memories from my youth were the annual family reunions. As I stood and watched the nearly¬†30 – 40 people I was related to – whether through blood or marriage – I was overcome with a powerful sense of pride; “The Yi Clan” as I affectionately would say to myself. I haven’t […]

Review: Disney’s “Pinocchio” Signature Edition Brings Back a Timeless Tale

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison February 2, 2017
Today, the Walt Disney company has a well-established tradition of taking literary work and reinterpreting it for popular consumption with its own amicably creative twist, and the precedent for all of that began in 1940 with its second feature film Pinocchio.

Voltron Legendary Defender

Review: Grander Adventure Awaits in “Voltron Legendary Defender” Season 2

The first thing to understand about season 2 of Voltron Legendary Defender is that it’s really a second season in name only.

Long Way North

Review: “Long Way North” – Short Version: Terrific
