by Alex Beanon February 25, 2013
The 85th version of the Academy Awards – that annual self-congratulatory show business industry shindig where industry executives and mucky-mucks show up in their limos to pat themselves on the back in front of a live television viewing audience – is over for another year and, as usual, nobody in Hollywood is ever completely happy […]

Review: “Slugterra: Return of the Shane Gang”: Saddle Up With This Posse

by Ed Liuon February 20, 2013
I can enjoy the latest incarnations of DC or Marvel superheroes or revivals like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or G.I.

Unlike most American productions, which even at their most challenging often trot out the same few very familiar character types and situations, anime series aren’t always afraid of baffling viewers […]
