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
What do you get when you cross one of the most influential anime movies ever made with the most famous animated family of all time? You get Bartkira, an ongoing collaboration amongst artists across the nation with the lofty g...more
Did you hear the recent news? They’re going to make an Adventure Time movie, and honestly, that’s pretty darn rad. I love a good cartoon to movie adaption—and not just a live action adaption or remake, we ho...more
I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods was one of the funnest animated films I saw last year. Didn't give it enough credit because it was essentially an hour of a dude punching a giant...more
Isao Takahata is one of the directors out of Studio Ghibli that seems to be less discussed by fans in the west. Takahata is responsible for directing some of the most riveting and eerie films to come from the Japanese a...more
It's hard to believe that Shaun The Sheep is only Aardman's fourth stop motion feature film. The studio initially made its name in the UK with short films in the 70s and 80s such as Creature Comforts, but it was with the re...more
This past month, Laika recently wrapped up a touring gallery of original art, posters, props, and puppets from their animated features. You know, those last few critically acclaimed stop-motion films of the past few yea...more
This may come as a surprise to you, but Spongebob Squarepants is still the juggernaut of a cartoon it was when it first debuted back in 1999. Never ceasing to keep kids' attention thanks to its unique characters and ever evol...more
They're baaaaaaack! Or, rather, they're here, since Minions serves as a prequel.
Arguably the best characters in the Despicable Me franchise finally have their own film, and I couldn't be more excited. In Minions, ...more
I haven't been very silent about this, but I am actually mad hyped for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water. The cartoon has been very good the past few years (and was even entertaining at inception, too), an...more
Back when Dreamworks Animation needed to compete with Disney, they stopped making films in 2D (even if those films are some of the greats) and churned out ten Shreks to a very successful box office performance each time. Basi...more
2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it just wouldn't be fair to ignore the movies in the 11 through 15 slots.
So let's get the ball rolling...
Ever since the animated Justice League specials committed to the New 52 continuity (after The Flashpoint Paradox), they haven't been very good. I don't know what's to blame for that either. Is it the comics themselves? Is it...more
Anybody who knows me knows that seals are my favorite animal, so when I started seeing advertisements for Song of the Sea, I knew I had to check it out. Cartoon Saloon had already impressed me with its first feature film, Sec...more
