"Gundam F91" Misfires Too Often

It’s a bad time to be a Universal Century fan. Your original series bombed on television, your movie had several questionable dub errors, and your most-requested title had more delays than the average Nintendo 64 video game.

"Home on the Range": Where Seldom is Heard an Amusing Word

"Shrek 2" Still an Ugly Duckling

While it is common with live action films, the notion of theatrical sequels remains a strange one to the world of animation. Only a handful have come to pass so far, most notably Pixar’s very clever and successful Toy Story 2, which is generally considered to have improved on the original. This example was apparently […]
