No, Mario Won't Be In Wreck It Ralph 2

Wreck it Ralph made a name for itself by having a multitude of video game cameos. The sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet may have Disney Princesses and other video game icons but Mario won't be there like fans hoped. Since Mario's enemy...

Teen Titans will fight Teen Titans Go! next year

Growing up in the early 2000's, Teen Titans was my jam. I distinctly remember watching it on Toonami on Saturday nights right alongside classics like Yu Yu Hakusho and Megas XLR. The action, plotlines, and comedy w...

(Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the first six episodes of Castlevania Season 2, however there will be spoilers for Season 1) The first season of Castlevania was a surprise that I'm not sure many people were expec...

NYCC: She-Ra mixes Lord of the Rings with Steven Universe

Looking back at most of the best kids shows from the 80's, I think it's safe to say that people don't remember them for their in-depth stories. They had eye-catching premises and some enjoyable characters (looking at you Starscream), ...

Review: Smallfoot

The fact that's there's a Tod Browning's Freaks reference in Smallfoot doesn't really say all that much about the movie. It's not actually crammed full of clever comedy for adults, or secretly hiding darker themes than w...

Marvel is to blame for Donald Glover's Deadpool not happening

If you recall a while back Donald Glover was working on making a Deadpool TV show for FX. It didn't get as far as it should of in that it didn't get anywhere and it should have been a hilarious show that ran for years. Glover responded with...

Review: Teen Titans GO! to the Movies

What I'm about to say may seem hypocritical. About two months ago, I came to the defence of modern cartoons not just because of their maligned against animation, but also because they're for a different generation. I, a 23-year-ol...

We got 4 hot DC Animated movies coming in 2019

Animated DC movies, officially called DC Universe Animated Original Movies (that's dumb), are DC's hidden gems. Each direct-to-DVD release is less than 90 minutes, rakes in around $5 million in sales, and  retells classic DC comic...

Screw Stevenbombs, we're getting a Steven Universe movie

I'm a huge fan of Steven Universe, so I was looking forward to their Comic-Con panel all week. After "Heart of the Crystal Gems" concluded a few weeks ago, I needed more of it ASAP. So I was hoping for any news about a possible season ...

Wonder Park trailer is clearly hiding a dark secret

We got the first trailer for Paramount's Wonder Park today and normally I'd let it slide right by but the teaser trailer is so devoid of anything even remotely hinting at a plot that I felt compelled to share it. It definitely lo...

Ranking the best Pixar movies (and Cars 2 I guess...)

I've been a fan of Pixar for most of my life. Whenever Pixar gets around to making a new movie, whether it's an original movie or a sequel, there are a few things you can be certain of. It's going to make a fortune at the box office, i...

Review: Incredibles 2

There has been early chatter that Incredibles 2 relies on nostalgia to achieve its ends. Let me be perfectly clear, I understand that (1) we’re in the middle of a nostalgia driven resurgence of a great many properties come back to lif...

Ralph Breaks the Internet trailer repairs expectations

It's not even been three months since Ready Player One whelmed at the boxed office and already someone has come along and shown how that should have been done. Love it or hate it, the crux of RPO, outside of nostalgia, was t...

The pieces come together for first LEGO Movie 2 trailer

I am hyped for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part because it looks like it's basically the first movie, but more. Most of the time when a movie is just the first movie but more things go wrong. Jokes get recycled, characters get dull, ...

The LEGO Movie sequel gets release date and name

When The LEGO Movie came out everyone was rolling their eyes at it and thinking it would suck as a weird attempt at a cash grab for kids. Well, everybody who hadn't played a LEGO video game, that is. Anyone who had was already awa...

Spoilers: Superman may die in this Death of Superman trailer!

Arguably one of the biggest events in comics was when Superman died in the 90's. I know that a lot of people tend to just shrug their shoulders at death in comic books, but Superman was one of the few characters that just didn't die. How c...

Rick and Morty scores 70 episode deal with Adult Swim

Rick and Morty, a polarizing show to say the least, has been given a massive renewal by Adult Swim. The 70 episode deal will certainly span beyond the show's fourth season and keep the series in development for an untold number of years. Fo...

Review: Batman Ninja

While the MCU has dominated theatres for the past decade, DC has been putting out a constant stream of animated movies. Most of their animated movies are adaptations of classic DC stories and if I'm being perfectly honest here, most of them...
