"Aladdin and the King of Thieves" Makes a Rich Haul of Laughs

Rejoice! Rejoice! Robin Williams returns to the fold in Disney’s Aladdin III: Aladdin and the King of Thieves. Yes, sometimes even the mighty Mouse learns from its mistakes, and, following the Return of Jafar debacle, Disney managed to lure the venerable Genie back for this 1996 direct-to-video finale to the Aladdin saga. It’s got Genie, […]

"Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence": Androids Dream of Electric Sci-fi

Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence comes to DVD with high expectations, and it doesn’t disappoint. An elegant treatise less on man versus machine than man in machine, this sophisticated sci-fi thriller explores the human relationship to robots. And automatic weapons. It would be a disservice to take the reader too far into the film’s […]

"Burn-Up Scramble" Vol. 1: Fourth Time's Not the Charm

The year is 2005, Atlanta. Due to globalization and market expansion, animé has evolved. But so has its darker elements.

"Neon Genesis Evangelion" Platinum Edition Vol. 4: Now Nearly Action-Free!

Everyone should know the basic premise of Neon Genesis Evangelion by this point whether you’ve seen the entire series, just caught the quick Toonami run, or heard the legions of fanboys screaming like little girls over it. Giant robots battle giant monsters, all while a whiny kid named Shinji gives viewers giant headaches. And it’s […]

"Mezzo" Vol. 1: The DSA is On The Job!

The Danger Service Agency will handle any job for a price. It doesn’t matter if it’s tracking down a missing person (especially if your favorite weather woman is involved) or following a would-be adulterer (do robot duplicates count?), Mikura, her pals, and her orange spandex will get any job done right. But should you engage […]

Great "Beginnings" for "Power Rangers S.P.D."

In the year 2020, Earth has opened its doors to alien life forms from throughout the universe. Ninety-nine percent of them are good and decent people. One percent are criminals. And then there’s Emperor Gruumm. Guess where he fits in. Luckily, there’s Space Patrol Delta to guard against Gruumm and his Troobian forces. Everyone looks […]

"Power Rangers": The Best Cartoon the 1980's Ever Produced

Power Rangers is the perfect 1980′s cartoon. Look, never mind the fact that it is not animated and that it didn’t even air in the 1980′s (it reached American shores in 1993). Just bear with me. By “1980′s cartoon,” I mean a cartoon that mostly ignores atmosphere, character and even plot, but instead just kicks […]
