Ferdinand

Review: “Ferdinand” – Are Those Flowers I Smell or Something Else?

by Ed Liuon December 14, 2017
The Story of Ferdinand easily earns its place in the canon of classic children’s literature, due to Munro Leaf’s gentle, unobtrusive message mated to Robert Lawson’s delightfully expressive illustrations. The book is wonderful but exceptionally short (and was already successfully adapted as an animated short film by no less than Walt Disney two years after […]
Digimon Adventure Tri Confession

Review: “Digimon Adventure Tri: Confession” is Still a Digital Delight

by Neo Yion December 5, 2017
Digimon Adventure Tri has been a standout set of films so far, able to continue from the original anime series, Digimon Adventure, and further develop its central cast. Previously children in Digimon Adventure, the original eight Digidestined are now older and prone to grown-up decisions. Tri’s reoccurring theme of change and adulthood is once again […]

Cars 3

Review: “Cars 3” Blu-ray Reaches the Front of the Pack

by Classic Speedyon November 20, 2017
Cars 3, much like the main character in it, did some soul-searching. The first Cars, while a fairly predictable film in its storytelling, worked due to its main character’s development, the large and varied cast, the re-imagining of an ordinarily human world as a cars-only world, and its worthwhile moral. The second film went in […]
My Little Pony Equestria Girls/Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters

Review: “My Little Pony: Equestria Girls” and “Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters”

by Ed Liuon November 17, 2017
I miss the Hub. It premiered in October 2010 with an incredibly strong slate of cross-demographic animated programming. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was the breakout hit while the new Transformers and G.I. Joe shows continued existing franchises with aplomb. With the loss of the network as an avenue of release (Discovery Family Channel […]

Call of Duty: World War II – Streamlined Multiplayer, Epic Zombie Mode Highlight Best COD In Years

by James Harveyon November 13, 2017
After flinging the franchise into the future with Infinite Warfare, Activision takes Call of Duty back to familiar territory with Call of Duty: World War II. Foregoing future tech and alien landscapes, players are now flung back into the hellish landscape of World War II, and the results are fantastic. While the short single-player campaign is […]
Batman vs. Two-Face

Review: “Batman vs. Two-Face” – Fitting Capstone for a Caped Crusader

by Ed Liuon November 6, 2017
I greatly enjoyed last year’s Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders and was quite happy to learn of the impending release of the sequel Batman vs. Two-Face. I was especially keen for the second film on learning that William Shatner would be joining the cast as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, since Captain Kirk and Batman were two […]

Toonzone @ MCM London Comic Con October 2017 – “Violet Evergarden” Episode One UK Premiere Review

by Grant Whiteon November 5, 2017
Part of the reason I hold so much respect for Anime Limited as a company is that as someone who was an anime fan during the post-Pokemon 21st century anime boom I know what it’s like to live in the UK and miss out on the opportunities fans elsewhere get. Sure it’s great to have […]

Star Wars Rebels The Holocrons of Fate

Review: “Star Wars Rebels” Season 3 Blu-ray – Highs, Lows, and In-Betweens

by Ed Liuon September 6, 2017
Something persistently bugged me throughout the broadcast of Star Wars Rebels Season 3. I had the sense that something was off compared to the first two seasons, but was never quite being able to put my finger on what it was. Now that I’ve been able to binge-watch the entire season on the newly released […]
Batman and Harley Quinn

Review: “Batman and Harley Quinn” – Chocolate/Peanut Butter or Oil/Water?

by Ed Liuon September 5, 2017
Batman and Harley Quinn is a movie that mixes the dark, brooding mood of Batman the Animated Series with the more comedic, ridiculous elements of Batman ’66, but in a way that keeps the two elements separate and distinct from each other. It’s a black-and-tan kind of a mix, as opposed to the fully blended […]
