My Little Pony Equestria Girls Legend of Everfree

Review: “My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree” Shows Cracks in the Facade

by Ed Liuon November 3, 2016
Longevity in a franchise is a mixed blessing. When it’s done well, plot and character arcs can build on what’s been done before and expand in new and interesting directions. However, even if the franchise is successful at this, it’s all too easy to repeat yourself while becoming accessible to newcomers. The mixed blessings of […]

by Chad Boninon October 14, 2016
Rusty Venture needs a new outlook, and the skyline of New York City is the perfect spot for a former boy scientist to recreate himself in and see a new light. He doesn’t have to be shackled by the impressive life of his twin brother or live in the shadow of his father; he can […]

Review: “Adventure Time” Season 6 – Moves Forward, Stays Fun

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison October 13, 2016
Season 6 of Adventure Time carries things forward from its eventful and experimental fifth season, and no good show gets this far without being very comfortable with itself and what it’s all about. With its world and characters all thoroughly established and a well-honed creative sense for weirdness, with this set fans get more of […]
We Bare Bears Burrito

Review: “We Bare Bears: Viral Video” DVD – Quietly Surprising

by Ed Liuon October 4, 2016
I’m at a bit of a loss in trying to review the We Bare Bears: Viral Video DVD, the first home video release of Cartoon Network’s new series that contains a dozen episodes of the show. To a degree, it’s the same difficulty I’ve always had in articulating exactly what it is about the show […]

Beauty and the Beast

Review: “Beauty and the Beast” 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Edition Is Beautifully Timeless

by Neo Yion September 27, 2016
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is the kind of film that comes once in a blue moon: a piece of cinema that is not only flawless, but influential. Playing a major part in the revolutionary Disney Renaissance of the 90’s, Beauty and the Beast proved its predecessor, The Little Mermaid, was not just a fluke […]
The Lion Guard Never Judge a Hyena from Its Spots

Review: “The Lion Guard: Unleash the Power” – Teen Titans of the African Veldt

by Ed Liuon September 26, 2016
True confessions time: I’ve never been much of a fan on The Lion King. I think it’s a good movie that’s beautifully animated, but it never resonated with me the way I felt like it was trying to. It’s also plagued with a series of extraordinarily irritating songs that constantly interrupt the plot for a […]

Transformers: The Movie

Review: “Transformers: The Movie” Blu-ray Dares To Be Stupid and That’s Alright

by Neo Yion September 12, 2016
I love the cheesy aesthetic of 80’s media because they are often shamelessly dumb and driven by the Rule of Cool. Transformers could not have come out at any point before then. The high concept — giant alien robots that transform into vehicles, forever locked in an eternal war between two factions — is mind-blowing to […]

by Ed Liuon September 2, 2016
Kate and Jim McMullan launched a kids book franchise with I Stink, a delightfully illustrated ode to a New York City garbage truck as it makes its rounds throughout the city. The first follow-up was I’m Dirty, centering on a backhoe loader. Amazon Studios has picked up the property and launched The Stinky and Dirty […]
