Review: Your Name photo

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 ...

Poster for new Ducktales series full of ducks and tails

Ducktales is coming back because there's nothing original anymore. In fairness, if there is any Disney property I'd like to see back in from the heyday of their Saturday morning cartoon glory it's probably Ducktales, and from this post...

Review: The Peanuts Movie

Thanks to my mom, I've been following Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang for as long as I can remember. Like Charlie, I too am a sad sack who's life the universe sees fit to ruin at all cost. So when I first heard 20th Century bringing the ...

Review: Jem and the Holograms

I have memories of the 80s cartoon Jem and the Holograms. They aren't fond and they aren't bad, they just are. A movie based on the show didn't really get me excited in that way that most nostalgia does, but I could see how it could be done...

Steven Universe's extended opening theme is the best

Over the last year, Steven Universe has blown up to magnificent proportions on Cartoon Network. It was confident enough in its long game to build a literal "universe" of well rounded characters, strong and more adult themes (as it fights ag...

 
 
 
Jem Movie photo

Listen to the Jem movie's first original song "Youngblood"

I'm rooting for Jem and the Holograms. Firstly because there's a good chance this film will inspire other films like it, and we need more girl power band films, and secondly, I don't feel like we've got a good look at the film until now. T...
