Cars 3

Review: “Cars 3” Blu-ray Reaches the Front of the Pack

by Classic Speedyon November 20, 2017
Cars 3, much like the main character in it, did some soul-searching. The first Cars, while a fairly predictable film in its storytelling, worked due to its main character’s development, the large and varied cast, the re-imagining of an ordinarily human world as a cars-only world, and its worthwhile moral. The second film went in […]
My Little Pony Equestria Girls/Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters

Review: “My Little Pony: Equestria Girls” and “Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters”

by Ed Liuon November 17, 2017
I miss the Hub. It premiered in October 2010 with an incredibly strong slate of cross-demographic animated programming. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was the breakout hit while the new Transformers and G.I. Joe shows continued existing franchises with aplomb. With the loss of the network as an avenue of release (Discovery Family Channel […]

Call of Duty: World War II – Streamlined Multiplayer, Epic Zombie Mode Highlight Best COD In Years

by James Harveyon November 13, 2017
After flinging the franchise into the future with Infinite Warfare, Activision takes Call of Duty back to familiar territory with Call of Duty: World War II. Foregoing future tech and alien landscapes, players are now flung back into the hellish landscape of World War II, and the results are fantastic. While the short single-player campaign is […]
Batman vs. Two-Face

Review: “Batman vs. Two-Face” – Fitting Capstone for a Caped Crusader

by Ed Liuon November 6, 2017
I greatly enjoyed last year’s Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders and was quite happy to learn of the impending release of the sequel Batman vs. Two-Face. I was especially keen for the second film on learning that William Shatner would be joining the cast as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, since Captain Kirk and Batman were two […]

Toonzone @ MCM London Comic Con October 2017 – “Violet Evergarden” Episode One UK Premiere Review

by Grant Whiteon November 5, 2017
Part of the reason I hold so much respect for Anime Limited as a company is that as someone who was an anime fan during the post-Pokemon 21st century anime boom I know what it’s like to live in the UK and miss out on the opportunities fans elsewhere get. Sure it’s great to have […]

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 […]
