"A Scanner Darkly": What Does a Scanner See? Confusion and Delight.

When I first saw the trailer for A Scanner Darkly, my perception of the story, characters and director was thrown out the window. All I cared about was this animation style that they had chosen to use for this film and I knew I had to see it for that alone. The only drawback to […]

Paniponi Dash! is one of those shows that pretty much requires multiple viewings to fully appreciate. I can guarantee that you won’t be able to catch every joke on initial viewing, especially when so many of them deal with extremely obscure Japanese references that fly by at lightning fast rates. Not only that, but much […]
