Star Wars Rebels The Holocrons of Fate

Review: “Star Wars Rebels” Season 3 Blu-ray – Highs, Lows, and In-Betweens

by Ed Liuon September 6, 2017
Something persistently bugged me throughout the broadcast of Star Wars Rebels Season 3. I had the sense that something was off compared to the first two seasons, but was never quite being able to put my finger on what it was. Now that I’ve been able to binge-watch the entire season on the newly released […]
Batman and Harley Quinn

Review: “Batman and Harley Quinn” – Chocolate/Peanut Butter or Oil/Water?

by Ed Liuon September 5, 2017
Batman and Harley Quinn is a movie that mixes the dark, brooding mood of Batman the Animated Series with the more comedic, ridiculous elements of Batman ’66, but in a way that keeps the two elements separate and distinct from each other. It’s a black-and-tan kind of a mix, as opposed to the fully blended […]

Digimon Adventure Tri Determination

Review: “Digimon Adventure Tri: Determination” Digivolves To Mega Level

by Neo Yion August 29, 2017
The Digimon franchise has been running for fifteen years and none is so beloved than that of its first anime series: Digimon Adventure. Recognizing its nostalgic value, Bandai and Toei Animation teamed up once again to create a six-movie sequel series that takes place six years after the original. I stated in my last review […]
Powerpuff Girls The Last Donnycorn

Review: “The Powerpuff Girls: The Last Donnycorn” – Less of What You Liked, More of What You Don’t

by Ed Liuon August 29, 2017
I found the first DVD of the new Powerpuff Girls revival to be more polished and less quirky than the original series, finally coming to question the value of this new reboot if even its best efforts fall short in comparison to the original. Unfortunately, the second DVD The Last Donnycorn seems even less willing […]

Review: “Your Name” UK IMAX Theatrical Release: Simply Unforgettable

by Grant Whiteon August 21, 2017
I’m a bit late to the party on Your Name.  Lauded the world over, the Makoto Shinkai film received a limited run here in the UK last year but sadly not in any venues local to me. Though I may seem lazy in the face of an associate who went up and down the country […]

Review: “Napping Princess” UK Theatrical Release: Like A Dream

by Grant Whiteon August 15, 2017
Ancien is the princess of a mystical land, whose king is obsessed with cars and locked his daughter away out of fear of her magical ability to bring technology to life. But in reality she’s Kokone, a Japanese teenager who lives with her prodigy mechanic father, her only battles being against bouts of narcolepsy in […]

My Little Pony Equestria Girls Magical Movie Night

Review: “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Equestria Girls: Magical Movie Night” – Real Fun

by Classic Speedyon August 10, 2017
If you’ve been bit by the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic bug, then you’re always up for more adventures starring the ponies. DHX and Hasbro haven’t let this call go unheeded: a few years ago, they started a spin-off video series called Equestria Girls, which put the ponies, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie […]

Review: New Leadership Refreshes “Voltron Legendary Defender” Season 3

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison August 4, 2017
Following a grand battle that left neither side undamaged, season 3 of Voltron Legendary Defender has the feel of starting a new book in an ongoing saga. The “Paladins” of Voltron are no longer green and ready to take the fight to the Galra Empire, which is itself left uncertain by Emperor Zarkon incapacitation from […]

Lost in Oz Season 1

Review: “Lost in Oz” Season 1 – Great Way to Get Lost

by Ed Liuon August 4, 2017
When Lost in Oz premiered as a pilot, I said, “The very best thing I can say about Lost in Oz is that I really, really hope Amazon picks it up for a full season because I’m absolutely dying to find out what happens next.” Fortunately, someone was listening, since Lost in Oz was picked […]

by Weathermanon July 27, 2017
This is gonna sound really bizarre, but in the old old ooolllddd days of anime, you couldn’t watch something by clicking on a mouse button or putting a disc into a player or even really buying it. In the way way back of long long ago you had to get a tape, and frequently that […]
