"He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown" and It's Your Money, Peanuts Fans

When I reviewed the Peanuts 1960’s Collection, I guessed that several of the episodes on the set were not popular enough (or, frankly, good enough) to warrant a full-fledged standalone DVD release, and that the collection would be the only way to get these specials.

"Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" Is an Elegant Mess

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is a gigantic, overstuffed, overdone, over-the-top mess of a movie that consistently favors big punches, big explosions, and really big, dramatic proclamations over storytelling conveniences like coherence or logic.

Kirsten Lepore’s short, Bottle, is currently a finalist in the Vimeo Festival Awards. Separated by water, a sand and snow person build a friendship by exchanging bottled messages and other items.
