Review: Early Man

You know, I remember watching my first Wallace & Gromit movie very clearly. It was Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Now, I didn’t know what or who Wallace and Gromit were, but the unique animation alongside the ec...

The first Incredibles 2 trailer is here

We've all had to wait wait a long time for this, but it's finally here. Incredibles 2 has a full trailer full of incredible sequel things. Well, mostly just parenting. Of course that's what made the The Incredibles so g...

See Early Man early and free

February likes to pump out kids movies because that helps the box office survive, and Early Man is one of those movies. But it's also from Aardman Animation so it's actually kind of exciting. Their work isn't always the best, but it's alway...

Review: GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

Netflix's anime feature, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters,  is a mixture of fantasy and science fiction elements with some play at political intrigue, which makes this familiar tale somewhat fresh and enjoyable, but it doesn't ex...

Animaniacs is getting 2 new Seasons courtesy of Hulu

Well, I was wrong. Back in May, we heard that Animaniacs was looking to make a comeback, with both Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation on board for its revival. I was sure they would pick Netflix, but it looks like Animaniacs is be...

Review: Coco

A litany of Disney animated films have explored various cultures. Whether or not they were entirely respectful of those cultures is up for debate, but the one constant up until recently was that neither Disney nor Pixar tackled any aspects ...

Disney scraps animated feature Gigantic

I'd been pretty excited about Gigantic since Disney announced it on their release slate. It would have been the next in the currently sterling line of Disney animated features, and had the age-old Disney trick of adapting a fairy tale ...

Batman: The Animated Series coming to Blu-ray in 2018

At New York Comic Con this weekend Warner Bros. announced that they were moving forward with plans to release a remastered version of their classic animated series Batman: The Animated Series on Blu-ray in 2018. Not many details are known b...

Review: My Little Pony: The Movie

June 28, Hasbro has just released the trailer for My Little Pony: The Movie. I’m mildly impressed. It’s fun. Zany. Action-packed. It has great animation and it appears to have references designed for people over the age of ...

Bob's Burgers serving up a movie for 2020

Bob's Burgers is one of those shows I never expected to love as much as I do now. It started a bit slowly, but once it really steered into its grounded absurdity (an oxymoronic nature Bob's Burgers balances so well) it took off and some of ...

Review: The Emoji Movie

You know, for the longest time I thought that this movie was a joke. Something invented by film producers to have a laugh. A prank that writers bounced around, but never dared to seriously consider, lest their career be stamped with a black...

'The Incredibles 2' picks up where the first left off

The Incredibles ended on a high note, with the Parr family jumping into action to defeat The Underminer, and then a cut to black implying that their adventures would continue one day. Today we know that there is indeed a second Incredibles ...

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature has a trailer

With a title like The Nut Job 2 being tossed about, my expectations were unusually high. So, it's not a Mel Gibson biopic. Big deal. And no, it's not a cleverly veiled marketing ploy for Charlie Sheen's 9/11 movie--whatever the hell th...

BoJack Horseman returns September 8th

The last season of BoJack Horseman was by far the best yet. Each season has been good, but BoJack is the kind of show that only gets better as its concepts are explored further, and Season 3 was quite an achievement for this funny, yet depr...

Netflix's Castlevania series renewed for season 2

We're pretty used to movies getting sequels before they're even released (hell, some get them before they even begin shooting), but television has been slower to pick up on the trend. Probably because they want to avoid awkward situations l...

Review: Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me was a revelation when it first hit theaters. A villain choosing fatherhood over his proclivity for evil deeds was a novel idea, and it was much more than the minion flavored marketing would have you believe. Then those minions...

'Ricky and Morty' Season 3 drops July 30th, new trailer out

Let's wind the clock back for just a moment. It's 2015. You're watching the Season 2 finale of Rick and Morty. There's a big cliffhanger that sets up the next season, and all of the sudden, you're face to face with an old friend, Mr. Poopy ...

Review: Cars 3

Pixar has made a name for itself these past few decades by delivering quality kids films that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Yet among those films, the Cars series is rarely included, and for good reason. The storytelling and jokes ...

New DuckTales opening is surprising in a few ways

I don't know if I'm going to be heavily invested in the new DuckTales cartoon like I was the original. That's mostly because I'm not a kid anymore, and I sadly don't have Saturday mornings to plop down and watch all the cartoons I want...

Tom and Jerry defile Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

To begin: Tom and Jerry are still a thing. Not like a retro thing, but, evidently, an actual, current thing that is created here and now.  What form are they taking now that they've exhausted every plot line of cat and mouse that ever ...

New Carmen Sandiego animated series coming to Netflix in 2019

If you're a person of a certain age (i.e., you're old), you probably have some fond memories of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? There were the computer games in the 80s and 90s, which spun off into a children's game show and an anima...

Review: My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea

There are so many possibilities in My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, the directorial debut of indie comics artist Dash Shaw. There's the image of an entire high school building adrift on the ocean and sinking. Think Lord of the Fl...
