Emma: A Victorian Romance – Season Two

Emma: A Victorian Romance – Season Two

| April 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Emma: A Victorian Romance season two seems to be almost an entirely different show than its previous season. The plot, while still languid, seems to be quicker and fuller. This may come from the fact that there is more conflict inherent in the story lines. Emma and William have gotten to know each other during […]

Sweet Blue Flowers

Sweet Blue Flowers

| April 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

Admittedly, Sweet Blue Flowers (Aoi Hana) is not the sort of show I‘d normally go out of my way to see. Adapted from the even still ongoing manga by Takako Shimura, this 2009 “Girls’ Love” anime is a slice-of-life story about a group of Japanese high school girls, some of whom, including our protagonist, Fumi, […]

Strange Frame, by directors GB Hajim and Shelly Dotty, may make some feel like they are on the bad-side of an acid trip, with its hallucinogenic, cut-out animation style. However, the film possesses such an […]

Street Sharks: The Complete Series

| February 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Street Sharks ran for but two seasons (three if you consider the three-episode mini-series that started it all a season unto itself) in 1994 and 1995. It didn’t have the overwhelming cultural impact that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to which it owes its entire existence, had, and the merchandise it was intended to market wasn’t […]

Disney’s Peter Pan: Diamond Edition

Disney’s Peter Pan: Diamond Edition

| February 5, 2013 | 0 Comments

Today’s Diamond Edition release of Peter Pan marks the Blu-ray debut of this 1953 animated feature from Walt Disney Studios. Now, I must admit before delving too deep the picture that, while considered a classic by many, Peter Pan isn’t really one of Disney’s best pictures. However, the reasons for this frankly aren’t as interesting […]

The Simpsons – Season 15

I was thrilled to get this fifteenth season of The Simpsons by mistake because it would give me an opportunity to discuss the downward trajectory of the series.  Previous reviews of The Simpsons that I’ve seen on our site as well as others seem to come from Simpsons loyalists, who defend the series more now […]
