Re: Manga & Anime THREAD

Granted .. Mazinger-Z is a bit of an acquired taste; the original TV show is rather infamous for its cheap 're-used' animation, repetitive 'fight-of-the-week' stories & over-the-top cheesiness. I saw bits & pieces of the show when I was a kid (my father was stationed in Japan while in the US...

Coming to theaters in Japan in January 2018 .. and, presumably, to (japanese) Blu-ray & DVD by mid-Spring.

Re: YouTube Goodness

A very short (but nifty!) experimental animation, juxtaposing forced-perspective drawings with a moving mounted camera .. the first half offers a time-lapse overview of the process; the second half features the combined effect:

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

According to Animation Scoop (see the paragraph directly beneath the cover art), pre-orders of Porky 101 direct from Warner Archive should be pressed discs, rather than DVD-Rs.

I dunno if the same applies to orders placed via Amazon or other retailers, though. :|

Re: Disney Parks

Toy Story Mania is still at DCA .. but it was 'out-of-commission' during my visit, last week. :( At least I can look forward to seeing it next time I go! The Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland was likewise closed -- but had a sign out front saying "The Adventure Continues: Spring 2017." Luck...

Re: Disney Parks

I revisited Disneyland & California Adventure earlier this week, for the first time in many years. There is some obvious construction going on at the moment on Tom Sawyer Island, which I presume will be the home of the upcoming Star Wars Land. However, not content to wait that long, it seems Dis...

Re: Disney Pixar's Cars

I visited Disney's California Adventure Park earlier this week, for the first time in several years .. and I was blown away by Cars Land (which was still under construction, during my last visit). Though Cars is not my favorite Pixar title, I cannot deny that Imagineering has managed to perfectly re...

Re: YouTube Goodness

Eh; I'm an O.G. fan .. but I find myself empathizing with Dustin's dad (in the comic strip above) : "There's a Star Wars Day? But why..? It's not like there's a Batman Day, or a James Bond Day. Is that only because you can't make a pun referencing one of their catchphrases on a specific date..?...

Re: Upcoming animated films calendar and date changes

Leap!: September 1st (Or straight to DVD at the rate it's going) Ballerina is due on DVD & Blu in France, next week .. I'm kinda tempted to just go the import route, with this one. The delays for Leap! have me convinced the Weinsteins are tinkering at ' Doogal ' levels .. I skipped that one in ...

Buddy Thunderstruck (Netflix)

This 12-episode stop-motion series premiered on Netflix last week. It's a lot of fun! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtvkFv7igno As the trailer implies, the show is a mixture of Talladega Nights , Smokey & The Bandit and The Dukes Of Hazzard .. with a liberal dash of Homestar Runner , for hu...

Re: Woody Woodpecker Live Action Movie!

This Brazilian film has been discussed a couple of times on Cartoon Brew .. but not yet, here (at least on the forum). Apparently, this film was shot simultaneously in both english & portuguese, so it will presumably end-up on R1 DVD, eventually. Illumination had been developing a 'live-action' ...

Re: DreamWorks Animations Larrkins Has Been Cancelled

FWIW, the TV/Netflix wing of DWA has been pretty busy, for the past year.

I'm not sure if that correlates to 'profitable' or 'successful' for DWA at-large, though. :|
