The coming of age story is a common plot in cinema, and in the works of Hayao Miyazaki in particular. The coming of age can be literal, as in Kiki’s Delivery Service, where the plot revolves around the title character reaching the age when she must strike out into the world and find her own […]

"Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths": One Plus One Equals Two-and-a-Half

Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is a nifty little gem of a movie, an unpretentious but thoroughly entertaining story that, probably, would have more appropriately been titled Justice League: When Archetypes Collide.

Cool Stuff: Old Fangs

Old Fangs is a nice, moody short in which a young wolf decides to confront his violent father. The animation is appropriate to the character designs, which are simple and angular. There’s a point in the story at which you might find yourself thinking, “But, wait. That’s what wolves do!”, making plot the weakest point […]

The short was created by Henrik Sønniksen and Benjamin Nielson. The music was cute. The characters themselves were not very original or distinct. The style in which is was drawn, however, […]

"Kick Buttowski": Lame Ass

Dear Walt Disney Television, In consulting the internet, I find that Thesaurus.com provides only thirty-three direct synonyms for the word “mediocre.” Is it your intention to churn out animated series that are … deep breath … “characterless, colorless, indifferent, inferior, insignificant, mean, of poor quality, pedestrian, undistinguished, uninspired” and “vanilla” until I have exhausted the […]
