I’m so happy to be writing about Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time right now because– full disclosure– I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! I contend that it’s one of the most irreverent and brilliantly-plotted family-friendly cartoons ever produced. What’s more, not only can anything happen at any given moment in the series, but it does, and as such, […]

Director Richard Raaphorst gained a lot of attention with his trailer for Worst Case Scenario, a Nazi zombie movie he was developing as far back as 2005.

If you haven’t heard by now, beloved director Hayao Miyazaki is retiring from filmmaking following the completion of his upcoming animated feature, The Wind Rises. And that’s it folks.
