"Race": Fast Ride to No Place Special

by Maxie Zeuson September 10, 2010
What exactly is the point of independent cinema? Put this question to any lover of art movies and you’ll likely get a dismissive nose sigh and a thin-pitched, whiny little screed about the freedom to make Important, Serious, Thought-Provoking and Experimental films without the grubby interference of low-brow Hollywood types who are only out to […]

"Titan A.E.": "Drej" Is A Pretty Good Description

by darkdetectiveon September 7, 2010
Titan A.E. had everything going for it. It was written by Joss Whedon, the guy who gave us Firefly and Serenity. It was directed by Don Bluth, who gave us The Secret of NIMH. With talent like that, it should have been an excellent animated sci-fi film. Instead, it isn’t. The story starts off with […]

"TRON": Shiny Graphics on a Rattle-Trap Game Engine

by Ed Liuon September 6, 2010
I’m a computer programmer by training, and have resigned myself to the fact that my chosen profession is probably never going to get an accurate screen presentation in Hollywood. Frankly, the act of programming a computer is completely boring to anybody who’s not doing it, which has forced Hollywood to some creative flights of fancy […]

by darkdetectiveon August 29, 2010
Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 are coming to Blu-ray and DVD November 30th. Although the films were originally going to be released under Disney’s Diamond Edition line, it would seem those plans have been scrapped along with the advertised Fantasia World that was believed to contain recent unavailable Disney shorts.

"G.I. Joe - The Rise of Cobra": An Action Film That's Actually Fun

by Dukeon August 26, 2010
Licensed action movies this year have not had the best of times. X-Men Origins: Wolverine was merely decent at best (though I liked it), Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li had about as much in common with its namesake as the Super Mario Bros. movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was just a mess […]

Disney Withdraws from ASIFA and the Annie Awards

by Ed Liuon August 25, 2010
Variety reports that the Walt Disney Company and Pixar have decided to withdraw from ASIFA-Hollywood over concerns on the way the Annie Awards are judged. According to the report, one major issue between Disney and the ASIFA board is that anyone can buy a membership to ASIFA, while other awards-granting boards like the Academy of […]

"Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes": How Addition Becomes Subtraction

by Ed Liuon August 25, 2010
Contemporary media conglomerates do love their franchises. They almost never produce mass-market entertainment without keeping an eye cocked at the potential for sequels, tie-in products, merchandising, and all those other wonderful ancillary sources of revenue. Today, even if a franchise peters out and dies, it’s more likely than ever to return from the dead in […]
