"Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness" - Only Half a Loaf of Kung Fu

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing, and there may be no animation studio in Hollywood who embraces that maxim more thoroughly than DreamWorks Animation. If one takes their chief executive at face value, they never work on any projects that aren’t destined from the outset for three- to four-movie sagas with spinoffs and TV specials […]

Young Justice - "Failsafe" Recap

During an alien invasion, the team faces the ultimate challenge when they are forced to replace the fallen Justice League! Young Justice is still a relatively young series, but I’ll venture to predict that “Failsafe” will ultimately go down as its most divisive episode. The opening act is certainly an effective hook; in a very […]

"Tom & Jerry" Golden Collection Vol. 1: Not Purr-Fect, But Pretty Good

Do I really need to describe Tom & Jerry? I don’t think I do. Aside from the fact that the premise of their cartoons (cat chases mouse) is so simple to describe, I think most everyone knows these iconic characters. Plus, I’ve described the series in previous Toonzone reviews, so I won’t waste your time. […]

Cool Stuff: The Backwater Gospel

A local guitar-playing vagrant announces the coming of the Undertaker to the God-fearing congregation of the church in a backwater 1930′s Dust Bowl town. While the Undertaker waits patiently at the town square, the Minister riles the townspeople up and convinces them the tramp is the source of their distress and that his death will […]

"Happiness Is ... Peanuts Snow Days": It's Not a Bad DVD, Charlie Brown!

A few years ago, Happiness Is … Peanuts Snow Days would have been released as a deluxe edition DVD titled She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown, with an episode of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show as the bonus feature. However, I am convinced that Warner Home Video’s Peanuts DVD release strategy has been specifically […]

"Winnie the Pooh" (2011): A Sweet Little Smackerel of a Movie on Blu-ray

Most of the praise and criticism I have for Winnie the Pooh is nearly identical to that of the original Disney film, at least plot-wise. Stating that the movie meanders around somewhat aimlessly and without much strong narrative drive isn’t a criticism, since that’s apparently exactly what the Disney Animation Studios were aiming for both […]
