Review: Disney Charms and Thrills With "Big Hero 6"

by Todd DuBoison November 7, 2014
Big Hero 6 might be the first time Walt Disney Animation Studios has handled a property from Marvel Comics, but there’s no question that the studio has taken the concept and made it its own, just as it has independently gone its own way when adapting the fairy tales and literature of yore. The movie’s […]

Review: "Ranma 1/2 Vol. 1 & 2" A Double Knock-Out, or Forfeit?

by Chad Boninon November 6, 2014
Ranma Saotome is a youthful martial artist, pedigree of the Anything Goes School of Martial Arts. Akane Tendo is the inevitable heir of the Tendo Dojo, and a strong and focused martial artist in her own right. Their parents have conspired to get the two to wed, leading to a unification of the Anything Goes […]

Planes: Fire and Rescue - Dusty and Blade Ranger

Review: Flying High with "Planes: Fire and Rescue" Blu-ray

by Ed Liuon November 4, 2014
Way back in the 1970’s, I was one of many kids who wanted to be a firefighter thanks to Emergency, an hour-long drama about Los Angeles County Fire Dept. Station 51 that aired on NBC from 1972 to 1977. Lots of kids are fascinated by firefighters and firefighting equipment, of course, but if something will […]

Review: "My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks" - Keeps on Rockin' in the Pony World

by Ed Liuon October 30, 2014
I wasn’t impressed by the first My Little Pony Equestria Girls movie, and the decision to elevate Twilight Sparkle to an alicorn Princess with her own kingdom left me equally non-plussed. So I was quite pleasantly surprised to find how much I enjoyed My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, and that this latest My […]

Skylanders Trap Team Review - Fun and Engaging

by James Harveyon October 28, 2014
Skylanders Trap Team is the latest installment of Activision’s epic toy-meets-game series, promising to push the franchise to the next level with new characters, powers, and all that we hear whenever a new game in a long-running series hits. As with previous iterations, expect to plunk down quite a few bucks in order to get the […]

Review: "Hal DVD/Blu-ray Combi (UK Edition)": Do Androids Dream Of Human Girlfriends?

by Grant Whiteon October 26, 2014
I first became aware of Wit Studio’s Hal last year, shortly after its Japanese premiere. Just a few months later I got a chance to talk to director Ryotaro Makihara, which only whet my curiosity about the film further. Just shy of a year later I am finally able to sample the film itself. Was […]

Review: "Adventure Time Season 4" Blu-ray Keeps Up the Quality

by Todd DuBoison October 22, 2014
If Adventure Time hit a high point in its third season, season 4 coasts along on the show’s momentum as it goes about gleefully playing in the sandbox built by its predecessors. This is also where the show touches on some substantive continuity in the wake of season 3 pioneering new and serious territory, but […]

Review: "Gurren Lagann Ultimate Edition Blu-ray (UK Edition)": Well met, fellows!

by Grant Whiteon October 21, 2014
Ah, Gurren Lagann. Arguably the jewel of the 2007 anime schedule and a show that seven years on still receives a lot of love and converts. It seemed that when the show was originally airing you couldn’t stop people from praising it. If you’re familiar with my reviews, you’ll know I often talk about the […]

Review: "Sleeping Beauty" Diamond Edition

by Todd DuBoison October 20, 2014
It is fitting that the last film of Disney’s early golden era should also be its crown jewel and so it is with 1959’s Sleeping Beauty, a late but ideal choice for Disney’s Diamond Edition line. These days a lot of digital ink gets spilled about Disney’s “princess movies” as if they were a genre onto […]

Review - Destiny Succeeds, But Doesn't Reach It's Full Potential (PS4)

by James Harveyon October 17, 2014
Sitting down to play Destiny, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. The hype has completely died down, as has the initial blowback. Reviews were, overall, pretty mediocre. There was a fair amount of disappointment to go around that, still, didn’t really stop anyone from playing the game. People are still plugging hour after hour […]
