Review: "Robin Hood" Blu-ray - A Slight But Enjoyable Effort

thumb-robinhoodbluray

Robin Hood isn’t often lumped in with the great Disney animated films, and while I wouldn’t pretend to claim it’s one of my all-time favorites, I genuinely like it and think it deserves some credit. I say this because when you consider much of the competition in the ’70s, it looks amazing. Sure, Ralph Bakshi […]

Review: "Slugterra: Return of the Shane Gang": Saddle Up With This Posse

thumb-slugterrarev

I can enjoy the latest incarnations of DC or Marvel superheroes or revivals like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or G.I. Joe, but shows that strike out in new directions and create new properties are going to get a bit more critical slack just because they are creating something new. Disney TV animation has been […]

Review: "Peter Pan Diamond Edition" - More Faith, Trust, and High-Definition Pixie Dust

thumb-peterpanreview

In rewatching Disney’s Peter Pan on Blu-ray, I find I have little to add about the movie itself from I may be ever-so-slightly less inclined to be charitable to the “redface” depiction of the Native Americans in the movie now, but the difference is pretty negligible. It also strikes me how well-tailored the movie is […]

Review: "Frankenweenie" Is a Very Tim Burtony Kind of Film

thumb-frankenweeniebr

Victor Frankensteinn (that’s Frahnkunshteen! … No, no it isn’t) is a lonely young boy. He lives in a colorless world, in a faceless suburb called New Holland filled with bland adults and weird children. His parents are mostly oblivious, and his next door neighbor, Mr. Bergermeister, the town’s mayor, just plain doesn’t like Victor or […]

Review: "Finding Nemo" Blu-Ray: Mission Accomplished

thumb-findingnemobr

If you don’t know what Finding Nemo is, what are you doing at an animation website? It’s only one of the most popular animated movies of all time, responsible for every “Hey, it’s Nemo! Look, Dorys! Hey Mom! Hey Mom! It’s Dory!” at every aquarium on earth for the last decade. It’s also the movie […]

Review: "Pixar Short Films Collection Vol. 2" - More Little Gifts from Planet Pixar

thumb-pixarshorts2

Way back in 2007, when I reviewed the Pixar Short Films Collection Vol. 1, our own staffer Duke asked: “Does Pixar even have enough short films for a second volume? Or will that second volume come out in 2011?” Duke, wherever you are, you were only off by a year. The second collection of Pixar […]

Review: Disney Delivers Delight With "Wreck-It Ralph"

Wreck-It Ralph Logo

If The Princess and the Frog and Tangled were earnest attempts by Walt Disney Animation Studios to invoke the past virtue of the “Disney Renaissance” of the late 80s and the 90s, Wreck-It Ralph represents its own take on the current trend of reimagining some element of pop culture for a family comedy. Few will […]

Review: "Secret of the Wings" is Genuine Magic for the "Tinker Bell" Series

thumb-tbsotw

I’m sure that Teenaged Ed would be horrified to learn that Adult Ed would actively look forward to Disney’s Tinker Bell direct-to-video movies. However, Teenaged Ed was an idiot about a lot of things and this would be one of them. While the latest installment, Secret of the Wings comes a year behind schedule, the […]
