Bronies. If you follow cartoons and aren’t already a brony yourself, you’re probably sick of hearing about them, but let me indulge everyone else. A brony is an adult male fan of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. I guess I’m one. I’m 36, I like the show, and I started a brony group here […]

Review: "Cat Planet Cuties" Scratches Playfully

catplanetcuties-4

They’re coming to visit us! The Catians are Earth’s first contact with an alien species, and they look a lot like us. Except for the cat ears. And cat tails. And apparently predominantly females that can go into heat. They’ve fallen into the lap of Kio Kakazu, a guy who just likes to make films […]

Review: "Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand" Stands Above the Live Action Movies

tfprime-6

I felt a little bit of trepidation when I first saw the box of Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand. The character designs looked like the characters in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Bayformers. The first Bayformers movie is the only movie that I’ve ever walked out in the middle of, and seeing the rest later on cable […]

Some adventures are grand, sweeping affairs featuring hundreds of characters in massive worlds full of daring escapes, massive armies and all the other fun stuff: See Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, etc. etc. etc.¬† Others are more intimate adventures where a few people achieve a personal triumph on a much smaller scale: more Niea_7 […]

Review: "Twinkle Toes" Movie Has Little Flash, Less Substance

Twinkle Toes Thumbnail

I can’t say I was optimistic on hearing that Skechers shoes were going to be expanding their animated TV ads into feature-length direct-to-video movies. I’m not reflexively against merchandise-based cartoons, but shoes just don’t seem to spark the imagination in the same way that dolls, action figures, or even board games can. Consequently, it’s not […]

heyarnolds2v2-cover

Hey Arnold Season 2, Part 2, released just last week, collects ten more episodes of the classic Nickelodeon series. Whatever else one might say about the show, it is remarkably consistent in both tone and quality. The merits of any of the show’s particular compilation sets depend upon the episodes collected. Hey Arnold is a […]
