I can't believe my phone went out on the inaugural episode! Oh well, we were running out of time to talk about Scooby-Doo anyway :) We'll cover that, as well as Disney's Rapunzel, Cartoon Network's acquiring of "MAD" and "Regular Show" to their roster of "dude" humor shows and how they, along with their other… Continue

One of my previous articles talked about how Marvel was putting out smaller and smaller Omnibus’ while slowly increasing the cost. Well, yesterday, word has spread around comic book forums that Marvel is going to release their biggest Omnibus yet. The complete run of Walt…
As a member of the generation that grew up with the Disney Renaissance, I can honestly say that it was one of the high points,m if not the highest point of the iconic studio’s long history. During that ten year period between The Little Mermaid and Tarzan,
some of Disney’s most technically innovative, beautifully drawn, and
overall greatest films came to their fruition. From masterpieces…
In case you thought you weren't going to see any new products come out of the Disney buy-out of Marvel, it appears that they made their first move at this year's Comic Con with the release of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes trailer.
See that? At the very end? It says the show will be airring on DisneyXD. What is that, you may ask? Well, DisneyXD is essentially the Toonami block for Toon Disney. However, since Disney also owns ABC, there… Continue

Despite it’s classic name and high reputation within both animation and film in general, Walt Disney Pictures is a studio that has been notorious in the past for simply recycling the same formula from film to film. Sure, there may be great songs, good animation, and even cool
characters but more often that not, Disney is quick to pull out its
obvious pick of used-up tricks: damsels in distress, idyllic…
This is being made into a movie, and could be the first Marvel film released by Disney. Although early speculation (before the Disney buyout of Marvel) had Neil Gaiman writing the plot, and directing the picture, Marvel recently revealed that Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly were currently set to write the script. These two have had success before by writing the film adaptation to Clive Cussler's Sahara, a Dirk Pitt…Continue

As any comic fan knows, there are a vast amount of characters in any given fictional universe that the general public is unaware of. While some of these characters could have a solid, unique, or awesome concept at their core, the lack of recognition by the general public means that they’ll probably never get the full length motion picture that may…
Nope, this isn't a new and controversial episode that Disney has been power marketing. It's an actual law suit.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, series creators Barry O'Brian and Richard Correll are suing Disney for profit royalties that they claim the mouse owes them. Their foundation for the suit is based on WGA compensation for their "created by" credits as well… Continue
One of the strangest stories I discovered, which may or may not be true, is that Japan didn’t know about the commercial version of Halloween until Disney introduced the concept to them via their theme park in Tokyo.
Apparently, history is repeating itself, as Disney is introducing an Easter event in their Tokyo property for the first time. Video below.…
Not since the first Mortal Kombat movie (whether you chose to believe it or not), has a videogame property been made into a faithful and successful film. True, the Resident Evil series has had financial successes in the box-office but fans of the videogame franchise have left unsatisfied and wanting.
For the sake of getting a headache, I am not going to post, write, or even mention the slew of films Uwe Boll produced (for obvious reason). And I think the Street Fighter…
Ponyo has been announced in the states to be Studio Ghibli's first Blu-Ray release. Naturally, this is old news in the Land of the Rising Sun, but it does beg the question: Will the other films be re-relased in Blu-Ray?
Currently, the only re-releases scheduled are for My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Laputa/Castle in the Sky. Amazon.com is reporting that these three films will be in DVD format only and… Continue
