"Loonatics Unleashed": As Bad as You Feared

Don’t see it. That was the short review. Now to the real stuff. I just saw twenty and a half minutes of this new show called Loonatics Unleashed, and I am still scratching my head. Its premise has futuristic versions of classic Looney Tunes characters fighting evil in the year 2772. I suppose that if […]

"Loonatics Unleashed": A Fine Concept Marred by Poor Execution

You play with a universally loved property at your peril, since any fiddling will usually send fanboys into a frenzy. Loonatics Unleashed did just that when it was first announced six months ago. Now that the premiere is upon us, animation fans all over the Internet will be asking the same question: “Is it any […]

Put 'Em Back: "Loonatics Unleashed" Is Just Mediocre

Six months after it was announced—six months after massive mainstream news coverage; anguished message board and blog posts; Internet petitions; scatological animated parodies; collisions with sex-toy manufacturers and Dutch character designers—six months after a near-riot, in other words, Loonatics Unleashed finally sees the light of day and reveals itself as… just another lousy action cartoon. […]

"Galaxy Railways" Vol. 2: Half Steam Ahead

We all slow down eventually, even in the world of entertainment. Kevin Costner, for example, has gone from battling vicious gangsters to canoodling with frumpy housewives. In a less drastic manner, Galaxy Railways lowers the pressure heading into its second volume, “His Father’s Son.” In my review of the first volume, I compared Galaxy Railways […]

The Los Angeles Times briefly notes the importance that the Walt Disney Company is placing on Chicken Little, the CGI-animated feature film scheduled for release on November 4. The studio is placing particular importance on the film in the face of their recent animated film flops and the possible ending of the Disney-Pixar partnership.

"Gad Guard" Vol. 7: Space, A Very Lonely Place

Any good series that dabbles in giant robots needs some part of the story to be about space. Whether it’s fighting in space or exploring other planets or just trying to reach this vast frontier, space is a must. And Gad Guard finally gets around to that very plot point. Last disc, there was a […]

"Gad Guard" Vol. 3: Small-Town Giant Robots

Giant Robots. Who wouldn’t want one? A robot the size of a skyscraper would be cool, but a ten-foot tall robot would be nice too. For one thing, it would be easier to take care of and hide in case you’re ever chased by the police all over the city. Plus, it wouldn’t talk much, […]
