"Pound Puppies": Cute Enough to Eat All Up

Pound Puppies is another one of Hasbro/The Hub’s relaunches of a classic toyetic title from the 1980s, right alongside its phenomenally successful My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. The show suggests two things. First, that its stablemate’s great success is no accident: someone, somewhere, seems to be doing a very good job ensuring that these […]

"The Adventures of Tintin": More Tin Than Gold

And unfortunately, that’s where my admiration ends. The film sloppily combines the plot of three of the most famous stories from the comic (“The Crab with the Golden Claws,” “The Secret of the Unicorn,” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure”). These stories were originally published over a four-year period with one other, different story coming in between […]

"Ultimate Spider-Man": Novel New Take on the Web-Slinger

While Spectacular Spider-Man hewed extremely closely to the stories and characterization in Stan and Steve’s original comics, Ultimate Spider-Man is far more willing to play with the formula in sensible ways, straying pretty far even from the newer comic book series from which it takes its title. Fury’s offer to Spider-Man makes perfect sense and […]

"Hey Arnold": The Urban Jungle Gym

Hey Arnold! is one of those “classic” Nickelodeon series that I never watched when it was on the air. It’s from what I dismissed as the network’s “goody-goody” era: when it seemed to take its mandate as a “kid network” seriously and (after the Ren and Stimpy debacle) shied away from genuinely cartoony material, favoring […]

"Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention" Blu-ray is Cracking Good Science Fun

The bad news about Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention from an animation fan’s perspective is that Aardman’s famous stop-motion duo don’t get all that much screen time in each of the six 30-minute episodes of the series. The good news is that their gags and asides are as funny and entertaining as they ever […]

"Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire" Blu-ray: Second Verse, Same as the First

The other element Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire adds to try and freshen things up is a handful of show tunes, which in turn allows them to bill this movie as the first Scooby-Doo musical ever. Unlike the musical interludes from the earlier TV shows, these are full blown musical numbers where everyone in the […]

"Adventure Time: It Came From the Nightosphere" DVD: Still Strange, Still Surreal, Still Spectacular

Adventure Time: It Came From the Nightosphere is the second Adventure Time DVD, bringing another 16 11-minute stories from the show to home video. While any Adventure Time at all is welcome on general principle and there are a number of gems to be found on this volume, I find I still have mixed feelings […]

Instead, a massively disappointed Kid Flash is taken off the mission and tasked with a simple delivery job. But a few deadly surprises await the birthday boy along the way… “Coldhearted” is the notable as the first occasion the […]
