Green Lantern TAS Season 1.5 episode 6: Loss

Petero's picture

This episode involves loss, though it does not revolve around dealing with Loss. It continues the story arc and even continues the Red Lantern Story Arc from last half season. It is nicely done, though somewhat ineffective due to feeling a bit cheap with the “loss” it deals with.

There Will Come Soft Rains

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 12/10/09

"There Will Come Soft Rains" is a short story by Ray Bradbury, first published in 1950 as a standalone, and later compiled into "The Martian Chronicles" as a kind of "Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch" story that's kind of achingly plaintive and sad.

There's very little Fan Film animation, and most of what is is primarily CGI. Yawn. Actual ink and pen? Nada. Actual ink and pen done by a professional animator? Double-Nada. Except here: click on through to see it, this is pretty amazing!

Chicken Little – Movie Review (**)

Republibot 1.0's picture

So it seems that the great philosophical question of my generation has become “What thinketh thou, Disney?” A lot of times this question comes paired with the popular discussion topic “The Wings of Pixar: Candle Wax or Real Feathers?” Both subjects seem to be generated by the apparent belief that Disney seems to think that Animation for Animation’s sake is all that matters. That they can slap the semblance of a story together, input the whole thing into a render farm, pop out a templatized feature length product and just by the simple fact that they epoxy their Brand name to it, it instantly should make it a quality animated film in the grand tradition of their storied past. While Pixar preaches “Story, story, story” (now whether that will continue to be true in the future is still to be seen…), Disney is all about the Brand. And that fact about Disney is nowhere more evident than in Chicken Little, the newest animated mass market twinkie from the Mouse House’s piece work animation assembly lines.

MOVIE REVIEW: “Planet 51” (2009)

I’ve got a bit of a reputation for giving unexpectedly positive reviews for movies that most everyone expected to be crap. This will not be one of those. Most everyone expected this movie to be crap, and crap it is. There are some redeeming qualities, but I’ll get to them in a bit:

SONG OF THE WEEK: "Dancing on the Moon" by The Fleisher Brothers (1935)

This is kinda' long, and mostly musical. Likely as many of you will find it charming as will find it gratingly awful, according to your tastes. Well, duh, I guess that's true of everything.
