Review: "Beware the Batman: Season One Part Two" Blu-ray Embraces the Darkness

by Ed Liuon February 13, 2015
I am not sure what level of corporate dysfunction led to Warner Bros paying for an entire 26-episode order of Beware the Batman and then failing to air it to completion on a cable network which they also own (at least until the show returned to the air in late-nights, where it was a notable […]

Review: "Pom Poko" Blu-ray - The Tanuki are Restless

by Weathermanon February 10, 2015
I need to clear up one thing before we get too deep into things. Tanuki are not raccoons. They’re a type of dog that lives in Japan and looks kind of like a raccoon, but they are in no way related to North American raccoons, despite Disney’s insistence on calling them raccoons in the dub […]

101 Dalmatians Winter Run

Review: "101 Dalmatians" Blu-ray Hits the Spot

by Classic Speedyon February 9, 2015
Are you tired of princesses? Then adopt 101 Dalmatians! 101 Dalmatians is an interesting departure for Disney in a number of ways. Many of the previous Disney films before this were adapted from fairy tales. By contrast, 101 Dalmatians was based on a book that was written fairly recently (1956, to be exact), and was […]

Review: "Porco Rosso" Soars High on Blu-ray

by Ed Liuon February 6, 2015

The movie’s sense of magical whimsy is tempered by much more adult themes and the spectre of wars past and yet to come, all done with the same mastery of craft that we’ve come to […]

Tales from Earthsea

Review: "Tales from Earthsea" - Patronizing Boredom in Fantasy Form

by Neo Yion February 5, 2015
Tales From Earthsea has an infamous shadow hanging over it, being the directorial debut of Hayao Miyazaki’s son, Goro Miyazaki. At the height of its release, there was a nervous air as Studio Ghibli’s fans wondered if lightning can strike twice from the same family. Whether he expected it or not, there was an immense […]

by Grant Whiteon February 2, 2015
Staz Charlie Blood is the progeny of a noble vampire bloodline. Although Staz is aware of the common trappings and behaviours his heritage entails, he has no interest in such things and instead uses his power to rule as the fair boss of the Eastern territory of Demon World while building up his apartment shrine […]
