"The Cat and the Canary": Brutality Was Never This Beautiful

I’ve long since given up trying to figure out how and why Cartoon Network decides to schedule its “seasons”; one week after the premiere of the two-part “season finale” to Justice League Unlimited, the network is kicking off season two with “The Cat and the Canary.” There’s nothing very special about the premiere to the […]

"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.

The last two Batman films sucked! Didn’t he see them? What is he […]

The Dark Knight Returns With Another Delightful DVD

Batman: The Animated Series is the best television adaptation any comic book superhero has ever received. A perfect blend of action, drama and character, all realized through beautiful animation, it is the gold standard against which all action adventure animation must be compared. It was daring and bold, not just for its time but for […]
