"Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom": Bleakness in Three Acts

Ever got to the end of a story and wondered what the point of it all was? That’s exactly the thought I had after watching Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom. That’s not to say the series is badly made, of course. But the story it tells is so utterly nihilistic that there really doesn’t seem […]

"Invader Zim: Operation Doom": Support Zim! Zim Commands It, Filthy Human PigSmelly!

I cannot help but grin from ear to ear as I watch this show. From the fantastic voice work, the gorgeous, original (if occasionally wonderfully grotesque) character designs never before seen in animation, it’s brilliant writing and odd yet hilarious humor, this show is nigh perfect, and in my opinion is the greatest show to […]

Sky's No Limit for "One Piece" Third Season!

One Piece Third Season has the show reaching for the sky, which was a relief for both myself and you, the dear reader; with any luck it will save you from another One Piece review filled with the usual load of half-baked sea-faring puns. This time you’ve got half-baked sky puns instead. How lucky are […]

NY Times Interviews Gore Verbinski on "Rango"

The New York Times has interviewed director Gore Verbinski on his upcoming animated movie Rango, starring Johnny Depp as a chameleon who thinks he’s a Old West hero. Among other topics, Verbinski discusses why he went from the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy to a movie about a wild west lizard, why he didn’t […]

"Megamind" Is a Mega-Disappointment

There are people who think they can harpoon the lunacies and ludicrousness of superhero stories just by pointing out Spider-Man should be shooting webs out of his butt. This is a joke that’s kind of funny when heard for the first time, but any humor value it has drops off dramatically upon repetition, and it […]

"All-Star Superman": This Star Burns Twice as Bright

Conventional wisdom says that Superman isn’t as popular as Batman because he’s too powerful and too perfect, and thus audiences can’t sympathize or identify with him the same way they can identify with the definitively human Batman. I think this argument is a big steaming load. If one accepts the conventional criticism that superhero comics […]

On February 17, Toonzone News was invited to the All-Star Superman animated movie premiere at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, CA. We were also given the opportunity to speak with the late Dwayne McDuffie who tragically passed away on Tuesday, February 22. From my personal experience with Dwayne McDuffie, you could tell […]
