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 ...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. Its a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its deli...

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...

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...

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...

 
 
 
Invader Zim TV movie photo

Invader Zim will return in TV movie form, meatbags!

Jhonen Vasquez was an important cultish part of my teenage years, and I can still find his creative fingerprints in my sense of humor. I loved his comics Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee (these days especially the latter); there w...

 
 
Review: Your Name photo

Review: Your Name

Makoto Shinkai's Your Name is the highest-grossing anime film of all-time, and it hasn't even come out in the United States yet. It beat Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away; give it a few more months and Your Name may beat Spirited Away as the h...

Review: My Life as a Zucchini

There's this pervasive idea that children are resilient, that they're able to cope well even in dire circumstances. In stories about forlorn kids, a combination of optimistic pluck and boundless imagination helps them through their troubled...

Diehard fans and casual observers of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim will likely be familiar with Samurai Jack. I'm not sure if the show, created by Genndy Tartakovsky, was breakthrough material or just incredibly unique. Either way, it was a ...

Review: Pokemon: The First Movie

One weekend, too many years ago, I spent a night over at my aunt's place. She didn't have cable, but she had a VCR. Which meant I could watch any movie I brought with me when I was bored of doing dumb kid stuff. Not thinking ahead, the only...

Aardman says a Shaun the Sheep Movie sequel is in the works

Two of my favorite films last year reminded me of great comedies of the past. There's Mad Max: Fury Road, which owes a lot to Buster Keaton's The General. And then there's Shaun the Sheep Movie, which seems to offer several nods to Jacques ...
