Wolverine & the X-Men

What do you guys think of the show? I really enjoyed it. I think it's been a nice break since X-Men: Evolution and this puts the story right back into gear without alienating new fans. Anyone out there seen this? It just got a DVD release date set for April 21st.

I think for an arthouse movie to get nominated, it really has to be considered the best animated movie to come out that year. Most people who may have liked Bashir enough, might have just put Wall-E in the number one spot (the consensus being that Wall-E was the best animated feature of 2008). Belle...

I've been seeing several ads for it on television and I can't wait to finally see it. It looks like it will be good.

I'm old enough to remember Warner's first (and last) "Cartoon Crack-Ups"-- Oh, I remember it too, and I was almost tempted to get it at the time. However, there were/are some HB classics that I actually wanted full season/volume sets for (Flintstones, Jetsons, Scooby), but honestly there is a lot o...

I'm curious to see how they'll handle their specials like Summer Vacation and Spring Break.

Oh, I just got my copy of the first volume as well. This is one of my favorite shows on DVD. I only waited so long to purchase for financial reasons. :)

I like the idea. I think that they will serve their purpose for those of us who don't want complete sets of all these cartoons. I'd like to own some of the cartoons on there for nostalgic purposes, but I don't think I could go for full boxed sets for all of them. It gives me the option of just buyin...

Yeah, Disney has been holding on to several Marvel properties. Hopefully they'll eventually release Spider-Man as well. One thing at a time though. Disney famously gets excited about a project and then when things don't go with their excessive expectations they balk on future ones (Gargoyles V. 3, t...

I'd worry about a live-action movie. It would have to be such a high special effects movie that I don't think Warner would pay that much attention to the story. I'm skeptical, but it's a fun property to play with. If they ever do it, I hope they succeed in making a good one.

I don't think Bolt's nomination was a big surprise. Ever since this category began, they have also looked at the biggest movies for the category. I can think all the way back to the beginning when Jimmy Neutron's nomination was a surprise. It wasn't a surprise because Jimmy Neutron's quality (it was...

I'd go for a Simpsons sequel. It's a good movie, but I would be concerned about them making another original story. They took so long to make the first one and I doubt they will take as long to think about the plot for the sequel. Here's hoping they get it right.

X-Men: The Animated Series coming to DVD!

This has got to be at the top of my list of unreleased cartoons. Most of them are under the Disney banner. I can't believe they finally are doing it. Here's hoping to the complete series being released chronologically. Check the news here: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/X-Men-Volumes-Announced/11203

I thought Bolt was great. I saw it with a group of 5 adults and we were all laughing and pretty much getting emotional throughout the movie. I think pet-lovers will really like this movie as we all did. I have to say that one of my favorite characters and the one I responded with the most amount of ...

Something might qualify, but it also has to be submitted by the studios to compete. All paperwork has to be submitted on time. Anyways, I expect that Wall-E will go for the win. The other two nominees should be Kung Fu Panda and maybe either Waltz with Bashir or Tale of Despereaux (if it's good). Th...

I don't know about you guys, but I get all I want from EW online. I used to have the subscription for a long time, but didn't bother to renew it recently. I did live for their special double issues though (fall tv preview, music preview, summer movie issue, etc...). Those are good. I like lists.
