Get Smart by way of […]

Cool Stuff: The Nature of Battle

Here’s a short from Emily Carr University of Art and Design graduate, Nat Dart. So far as environmental propaganda goes, this one was fairly enjoyable.

"The Princess and the Frog": Acceptable But Familiar

The Princess and the Frog is safe territory for Disney’s return to 2D animation. It feature princesses, handsome princes, evil baddies who bring temptations of riches (and ulterior motives!), “clock strikes midnight” deadlines, and lavish musical numbers that are all throwbacks to not only their earliest work, but to their late ’80s/early ’90s blockbusters. In […]
