Review: Newest "Transformers: Rescue Bots," "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," "Doc McStuffins" DVDs

thumb-tfrescuebotsmlpfimdocmcs

In the span of the past two weeks, three of my favorite shows have gotten new DVD releases, and they form an interesting cross-section of modern kids cartoons. All three are excellent shows with surprising cross-demographic appeal, and all three get a selection of good-to-great episodes on these newest DVDs. The Hub’s Transformers Rescue Bots […]

Review: "The Jungle Book 2" Blu-ray - What a Bear

thumb-junglebook2

Oh my, did this one hurt. The Jungle Book is one of my favorite Disney films, so this sequel (which arrived almost forty years after the first film!) had its work cut out for it right from the start. Let it be known that I have nothing against sequels, if a worthwhile story can be […]

Review: "Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning (UK Edition)" - The Super Not-So-Much Friends

TigerBunnyBeginThumb

Now don’t kill me, but I’ve yet to watch Tiger & Bunny. I know it’s a very popular show, and like a lot of people I enjoy superhero stories, but I just haven’t got around to it yet. However, that does make me an apt choice to look at the semi-compilation movie Tiger & Bunny: […]

Review: "Frozen" Blu-ray Warms My Heart

thumb-frozenreview

With over a billion dollars made, tons of merchandise, and lots of little girls replaying “Let it Go” incessantly (much to the annoyance of their parents), Disney’s Frozen is a phenomenon now.  It almost feels pointless to review a movie that virtually everybody has seen, but I know some of you are interested in my […]

Review: "The Venture Bros Season 5" Blu-ray - Walk Don't Run

thumb-venturebross5review

It hasn’t really been three years since the last release of The Venture Bros on home video, has it? That’s long enough that The Venture Bros Season 5 lands in a slightly weird space where it’s highly familiar and clearly building on older material, but my memories of that older material have decayed enough by […]

Review: "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" Probably Won't Stand the Test of Time

thumb-mrpeabodyshermanreview

DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman marks the studio’s first attempt at updating the now 50+ year old material of The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, drawing on the variety program’s “Peabody’s Improbable History” segments where a young boy and his adoptive parent, an exceedingly intellectual talking dog, travel back in time and interact with notable […]

Review: "Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground" - Best Slugs Yet

Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground Thumbnail

After a disappointing installment in Slug Power, Slugterra returns to form with its newest DVD from Shout! Factory, Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground. By now, I suppose it’s pointless to complain that Slugterra is a show that would be much better served by season sets, or at least a few more episodes per disc than […]

Review: Does "Bakemonogatari" Deserve Your Time (and Money) Investment?

thumb-bakemonogatari

Possessed by a sexually-charged cat demon. Painfully wrapped by an invisible snake. Slowly turning into a rampaging gorilla. These are just a few of the supernatural elements that Araragi must face off against to keep sanity in the city and his school. Why him? Beyond all these afflictions happening to people he interacts with, he’s […]

Review: "The Wind Rises" - Miyazaki's Solemn Tribute to Invention

TheWindrises3

Reasonable people can disagree about whether Hayao Miyazaki’s retirement from directing feature films will stick, but I think it is impossible to walk away from The Wind Rises without a lasting impression that it was created and directed as though it were this auteur’s final project. This film of exquisite beauty is ostensibly a biopic […]
