Review: "The Transformers: The Japanese Collection" Not in Mint Condition

transformersjapan-v1

Three series, found deep within the back closets of Japan, have never before aired in America. Three series offer three widely-different takes on the eras of machine versus machine. Three series, each focusing on successive battles of Autobots and Decepticons, starring three different leaders, three different bad guys, three different gimmicks. The Transformers: The Japanese […]

Review: "Shakugan no Shana" Season 2 + OAV: More Moody Melancholia

shakuganS2-5

Let it be known that I’m a generous guy. I originally reviewed Shakugan no Shana‘s first season and didn’t have a favorable reaction. Naturally, I wasn’t exactly chomping at the bit to review the second season. But, when asked nicely if I’d be so kind as to take up that burden (partially because a different […]

Review: "Rocko's Modern Life": Complete Series: Not a Very Dangerous DVD

rockov4-5

Rocko’s Modern Life has been a fun nostalgia trip, but luckily many episodes still manage to hold up for various reasons. Unfortunately, the ratio of good to forgettable episodes isn’t as weighted towards the former in the final season. This is a common trend with TV shows; very few manage to remain fresh all the way […]

Review: "Wizards" Proves Itself Experimental to a Fault

Wizards1

Perhaps the most impressive thing about Ralph Bakshi’s Wizards is that it was ever created in the first place. The director once described it as “my homage to Tolkien in the American idiom” and a “fantasy for American kids,” yet ultimately Bakshi’s 1978 take on The Lord of the Rings would represent his best attempt […]

Review: "Adventures in Zambezia" Offers Well-Worn But Enjoyable Family Fun

thumb-zambezia

If Adventures in Zambezia had been released by a major Hollywood studio, it would be solid and enjoyable but largely unremarkable fare. The fact that it is the first animated feature film by South Africa’s Triggerfish Animation Studios and was made for a fraction of what most animated features cost today makes it much more […]

Review: "Tenchi Muyo! Movie Collection" Breaks the Muyo! Mold

tenchimovies2-1

Tenchi’s disappearing! Tenchi has a daughter! Tenchi disappeared! In the Tenchi Muyo! franchise’s three cinematic movies, the gang travels back in time, deals with daughters from the future (!?), and explores the world of restaurant work. Can the girls save Tenchi, save Tenchi, and save Tenchi? In these three movies, does Tenchi actually matter, or […]

Review: "The Croods" Isn't as Evolved as It Could Be

thumb-croods

If titles were always entirely accurate, The Croods would be called Grug and Eep. At heart it’s not truly about the adventures and welfare of the titular stone age family, but rather the tale of a strained relationship between a father and his teenage daughter who yearns to break free of her family’s constraining lifestyle.
