"Samurai Horror Tales: Goblin Cat" is Spooky, Stylish, and Psychedelic

I’m a sucker for animation that mimics the style of an artist in another medium. The most common examples are cartoons based on comics, with the best known being the Peanuts animated adaptations, which vividly brought Charles Schulz’s children to the screen completely intact visually. Other, less well-known examples include the SciFi Channel’s adaptation of […]

"Avatar: The Day of Black Sun" Burns Bright and Hits Hard

Fans of Nickelodeon’s Avatar the Last Airbender have been a bit puzzled by the first half of the show’s third season. The end of the second season left Avatar Aang and his friends on their own after a crushing Fire Nation victory that nearly took Aang’s life. Their last remaining hope was the Day of […]

"Futurama: Bender's Big Score" Still a Winner for Casual Fans

I always enjoyed Futurama, but I never managed to get into the habit of watching it. I guess that means it’s all my damn fault it was canceled for disappointing ratings, so maybe this is an incredibly bad way to start off a review of the direct-to-video movie Futurama: Bender’s Big Score. I have ALWAYS […]

"Beowulf" Presents Beautiful Solutions to Non-Existent Problems

I must confess that I walked into Robert Zemeckis’ Beowulf with several pre-conceptions and biases. On the one hand, I have never been too impressed with Zemeckis’ baby technology of motion-captured animation. The Polar Express plummeted straight down the “Uncanny Valley” with its creepy mannequins, and Monster House was solid entertainment with animation that was […]
