Long Way North

Long Way North

Sasha’s grandfather was a Russian explorer looking for a new route to the North Pole when his ship went missing and he was presumed dead.  After losing her grandfather, Sasha slipped into the contented life that being the daughter of Russian aristocrats necessitates.  She attended balls, danced with princes, and tried to suppress anything bold […]

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

| June 7, 2016

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss of course, only wrote one feature film: a live action musical called The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T (1953). Directed by the legendary Stanley Kramer (It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World; Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner), it’s a film I’d been eager to see for […]

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed

| January 17, 2016

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed collects the first four episodes of Power Rangers’ 22nd season, and is now available on home video from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. With these episodes, Dino Charge is off to a promising start, and let me tell you, that’s an incredible relief! After all, I’ve previously posted a lot of words […]

Teen Titans Go!: Appetite for Disruption

Teen Titans Go!: Appetite for Disruption

| April 7, 2015

As a fan of the 2003-2006 Cartoon Network Teen Titans series, I approached Teen Titans Go! with enormous skepticism rather than excitement. After all, I saw Batman go from the seminal Batman: The Animated Series to the in many ways equally significant Batman Beyond, only to then get the occasionally chuckle-worthy, yet largely unimpressive Batman: The […]

Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Silver Warrior

Lionsgate’s second home video release of Power Rangers Super Megaforce collects the 5th through 8th episodes of Power Rangers’ 21st season (including “Samurai Surprise,” “Soul of the Tiger,” “Silver Lining” and “Silver Lining, Part Two”). Like the Super Megaforce release before it, the Silver Warrior DVD is presented barebones, entirely bereft of special features. However, the […]

Denver the Last Dinosaur: Complete Series

| September 18, 2014

From World Events Productions (WEP), the same studio that brought us every incarnation of Voltron, Denver the Last Dinosaur aired for two seasons, totaling 50 episodes, back in late 1988. It’s a series I recall from my youth with great fondness, one that stirred up some serious nostalgia flashbacks when I learned of its impending […]

How To Train Your Dragon 2

How To Train Your Dragon 2

| June 13, 2014

I think what I found so effective about How To Train Your Dragon was that in addition to being really fun, humorous, and a good adventure, it was thematically solid.  In the first installment of the franchise, the theme of symbiosis was incredibly powerful as we saw young Hiccup (Jay Baruchel; The is The End) […]
