Monsters University (2013 film)
Dumb me! Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb me! All summer I put my faith and hope in the big blockbuster films, the Iron Man 3's and Star Treks of the world. And from Man of Steel to Pacific Rim …

Monsters University (2013 film)
The summer of 2013 will likely be remembered as a period of sequels for the computer generated animated feature film segment.  Sure there are some original pieces sliding into the fray (Epic & …

Monsters University (2013 film)
Monsters University is an enjoyable film, a riff on the college comedy, borrowing liberally from "Revenge of the Nerds."   But the more I think about it, the more problems I detect with …

Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
The Justice League animated series had a fantastic story arc called “The Justice Lords” as far as I could remember. Alternate universes and multi-verses have always been a part of comic book …

Monsters University (2013 film)
Prequels always draw a low expectation rate for me. I believe while some prequels can be necessary, most of them are merely made to capitalize on a movie’s popularity and do little to expand on …

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
For all of my childhood, Who Framed Roger Rabbit has been one of my favorite movies. Thankfully, it's another one of those movies that still holds up really well as an adult. 1988 was quite a year …

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
In 1992, Batman The Animated Series came around and changed just about everything we knew about animated television shows.  Especially those based off comic books.  The show itself has left …

Kung Fu Panda 2
   In my opinion DreamWorks has always played second fiddle to Pixar in the computer generated feature film genre.  Their rivalry has existed for nearly as long as there has been a computer …

Kung Fu Panda 2
Was I the only one a little disturbed by the scene in the first Kung Fu Panda where Po's father told us the lineage of his noodle stand? You know, where he said he got it from his father, who got it from …

Thor (film)
**1/2 out of ****     Explosions, special effects, a sense of humor, and enthusiastic, dedicated leads. I'm getting tired of superhero movies; as 2011 seems to be a pretty big year …

Thor (film)
I wasn't expecting much when I saw this film. I was thinking that it would be worse than Daredevil. It was actually better. Asgard had been at war with the Storm Giants but a truce now prevails. Thor …

Rango
   When you think of the heavy hitters in the animated feature film realm, it’s certainly understandable if the first things that come to mind are Disney, Pixar or DreamWorks.  However …

All-Star Superman
   Allow me, for the sake of justifying my complaints about this piece from the onset, to say that I am a subscriber to the theory that the DCAU crew is responsible for the absolute best incarnations …

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse
   Talk about high expectations going in, ever since the release of Superman/ Batman Public Enemies, I have been terribly excited about this piece.  Going through absolute withdrawal of …

Thundercats
I used to occasionally watch “ThunderCats” back in the 80’s when I was a kid. I know it wasn’t exactly action-packed with an intricate storyline as I would wish it to be, but it …
