"DC Showcase Animated Original Shorts": Ants in Your Pants

by Maxie Zeuson November 9, 2010
I wish I could say nicer things about Warner/DC’s line of shorts programs. I don’t mean there aren’t nice things to be said about them; there are many nice things to be said. But they scratch a bad itch without quite making it go away, which is an unhappy place to put a viewer with […]

Fortunately, The Venture Bros Season 4: Volume 1 has largely restored by faith in the series. The eight episodes on this disc form the first half of the […]

"Toy Story 3" Blu-ray: I'm Not Toying Around; This is a Good Wrap-Up

by Dr. Daedaluson November 2, 2010
