Well, we’re now on volume 2 of fan favorite and deconstructionist magical girl anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Cat in the Hat SE Thumbnail

Back in June, I had many kind words for the program and few for the Blu-ray of Green Eggs and Ham. The situation is somewhat reversed for the latest Dr. Seuss Deluxe Edition for The Cat in the Hat: my major gripe that the earlier disc was far too short has been addressed quite nicely […]

thumb-paranormanreview

If there is justice in the world, LAIKA’s newest movie ParaNorman will make the studio a star in the league of Pixar. A self-styled zombie movie for kids, ParaNorman may ultimately be much more conventional than 2009′s Coraline, but this also means it’s far more accessible. It has the same stubbornly independent streak as a […]

TransformAndRollOutThree6

Optimus must decide between giving up the Allspark or the lives of Detroit when Starscream challenges the Autobots.
