Like for serious you guys if Wreck-It Ralph turns out to be terrible despite all of its awesome allusions to gaming culture and actual (actual!) vidyagame characters, then I lose all faith in humanity and nerdom and will never get excited about anything ever again.
In a surprise to very few, Disney is apparently hard at work on a sequel to 2012's phenomenal Wreck-It Ralph.
In an interview with Collider, Wreck-It Ralph composer Henry Jackson said, "I can’t tell you more, not becaus...more
This week's biggest release by far is Wreck-It-Ralph, Disney's CG animated offering chockablock with retro gaming references. (Wreck-It-Ralph was also the title of my unproduced sequel to King Ralph.) Also new and notable thi...more
I have never really cared too much about animation. I like animated films for the most part, but I rarely seek them out. I don't actually know why that is, and it's very possible that that will change in 2013. Why? Because 20...more
With Wreck-It Ralph's home video release only a few more weeks away, IGN grabbed this deleted scene from the film featured on the Blu-ray. In the scene, Ralph finds himself in a prison, and Felix is a guard...somehow. I can ...more
So, you've finally landed a date with that cutie you've had a crush on for a while, but he/she just wants to hang out and have a chill night-in? All your fears start rushing into your mind - what do you watch together, do you...more
In recent years, a lot of animated movies have been formulaic and underwhelming, but 2012 brought us the variety and quality that has been missing in the genre for a while. Sure, Disney brought back Beauty and the Beast, Find...more
Almost immediately, there's a weird dissonance in Wreck-it Ralph, Disney's love-letter to the 80s/90s age of arcades. From frame one, where the film begins at the arcade that is home to all the characters and games we're abou...more
Fair warning before you watch the international trailer for Wreck-It Ralph, one of our most anticipated films of the upcoming months. If you wanted to go in blind (and not know any of the plot details), then you shouldn't wa...more
While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently overturtlepowering the box office, let's not forget another anthropomorphic comic book hero, Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo. Usagi, a rabbit samurai, once hung out with the turtles...more
The Madagascar films never really stuck with me. They're okay to watch in passing, or to occupy the kids for a few minutes, but they're nothing special. That's why I'm surprised I laughed as much as I did with this trailer f...more
The Book of Life, produced by Guillermo Del Toro and directed by Jorge Gutierrez (who once created one of my favorite cartoons ever, El Tigre), looks absolutely stunning. I've completely fallen for this Die de Muertos film s...more
With The LEGO Movie being awesome and also destroying the box office WB was quick to announce a sequel and a spin-off based on their Ninjago line of LEGO. Two upcoming movies should be enough, but the want more. THR...more
It's astonishing that Spongebob Squarepants has made it this long and still has a crazy fandom surrounding it. I remember when it first started as part of the new wave of Nicktoons as Rugrats and the like were growing up. Bu...more
Studio Ghibli's films are so damn pretty, I don't even need to understand what anyone is saying. That's why this Japanese trailer for their latest film, When Marnie Was There, is perfect for me. In much better quality than t...more
If you aren't excited about The Boxtrolls, you should be. Laika, the animation studio that's brought us stop-motion gems like Coraline and Paranorman, is currently working on The Boxtrolls, a movie set in the fictional Cheese...more
While I may only like a small selection of Studio Ghibli's films, there's no mistaking their quality. Based on the Japanese tale "The Tale of Bamboo Cutter" and directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies), Princess Kag...more
Although you may not know Glen Keane, chances are you recognize his work. He designed characters from famous Disney Animated films like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast. Although traditional 2D anim...more
When I posted the teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 some time ago, I loved how cute the whole thing was. Yet, this first full trailer rings kind of hollow. As it completely relies on that cuteness, more cracks ar...more
Based on Joan G. Robinson's novel of the same name, When Marnie is There is about a lonely little girl who befriends a ghost. I've never read the book myself, but if it's being adapted by Studio Ghibli, I'm sure it's equal p...more
Presenting: Butter Ya'Self, a stop-motion animation of food rapping about food. You're welcome.
Butter Ya'Self was created by a bunch of people at CalArts, but specifically by Julian Petschek. The characters are all voiced b...more
Felix the Cat is a bit of an oddball. Not just character-wise within the various incarnations of his television shows and movies, but also his iconic status. I feel like most people can recognize the character, even if they h...more
