"Frosty’s Winter Wonderland: Deluxe Remastered Edition" Leaves Me Cold

by Radical Ravenon December 26, 2011
Frosty the Snowman is one of Rankin-Bass’s most enduring and successful Christmas specials, so it’s not surprising that someone saw fit to make a sequel. In fact, it happened twice: Frosty’s Winter Wonderland was released by Rankin-Bass in 1976, while CBS produced another special, Frosty Returns, in 1992, without the collaboration of Rankin-Bass.

"T’was the Night Before Christmas": Spirit Trumps Intellect

by Todd DuBoison December 23, 2011
Rankin/Bass’ 1974 holiday special T’was the Night Before Christmas has got the characteristic charm present in much of the studio’s other work, though this loose take on Clement Moore’s famous poem is about as simple as it gets.

"Kung Fu Panda 2" Blu-ray: Inner Peace Through a Great Set of Bonuses

by Ed Liuon December 19, 2011
I don’t have very much more to say about Kung Fu Panda 2 from my review of the theatrical release, even after watching the film a few more times on Blu-ray. Sequels are almost never as good as the original films, and while that’s still true of Kung Fu Panda 2, it’s still quite close […]

by Dr. Daedaluson December 19, 2011
Ah, what a powerful thing peer pressure can be. This is especially true when it comes to The Simpsons. If you want to be part of the “cool” crowd, will say that there are literally no good moments after a certain point in the series (usually season 8 or 9, depending on the individual), and […]
