A few months ago I posted five episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that I wanted to see in season three. The main crux of the post was that I wanted to see more of the same quality the writers had delivered in the first two seasons, and that I wanted them to [...]
It was called… uh… Something Something Madoka Magica, and it was recommended to me by a dude whose tastes I generally trust. The recommendation came with a foreboding disclaimer: I was to reserve judgment until I’d seen three full episodes. No other information was presented, presumably because my friend didn’t want to ruin the surprise. [...]
I try to leave politics off the ol’ blog. I sort of assume you dudes would rather read about NetHack ascensions and broken Xboxes than listen to me bitch and/or gloat about elections. But seeing as how we just had a big one, and seeing as how my guy won, I feel like I should [...]
This post contains spoilers for the season one finale of The Legend of Korra.
Back when The Legend of Korra first aired, I wrote up a post that served to give my first impressions of the series, and to give a decent encapsulation of my thoguhts on The Last Airbender, which I’d just finished watching. [...]
The downtime between seasons of your favorite show is bittersweet, isn’t it? On one hand you aren’t getting your weekly fix of Don Draper or Walter White. Oh, you can go back and re-watch what you’ve already seen, but that doesn’t scratch the same itch as discovering each new plot development for the first time. [...]
Robin Hood – (1973)
It’s weird to think of Disney in terms of anything other than a world-devouring mega-multi-billion dollar cartoon industry, isn’t it? Of course, I think it’s weird because I’m only thirty, and have never known a time when they weren’t in the business of marketing blockbusters. History speaks for itself, though: [...]
Atlantis: The Lost Empire – (2001)
According to Rotten Tomatoes, Atlantis: The Lost Empire is the fourth-worst movie in Disney’s Animated Classics series. Trawling around the internet, love for the film is hard to come by — and that’s when people even remember it at all. It is, in a lot of ways, the [...]
By the way, this is just a cartoons blog now. I don’t read or play video games anymore. I gave all my systems to orphans and now I just watch cartoons all day, forever.
Having just shotgunned the entire back half of Avatar: The Last Airbender in the past week, I was entirely prepared to [...]
The Little Mermaid – (1989)
The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie. I don’t mean to say it’s the most technically impressive; that would doubtlessly be The Lion King. Nor do I mean it’s the most fun to watch; it’s hard to beat Lilo & Stitch. It’s not the funniest (The Emperor’s New [...]
Hercules – (1997)
Before we talk about Hercules, can we talk about how terrible this video cover is? I don’t know if this is what was on the original VHS release or just something they whipped together for the re-issue, but my goodness is it awful. For one, if you’re going to make your [...]
