    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Disney To Feast In France

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

    I just went to the movies today and managed to catch the sequel to Despicable Me, i will tell you my thoughts about it.......

    Personally it was a good enough movie, and a tracker from the first movie, the storytelling was instantly developed from the first, Groo is now a friendly devoted family man good guy hero, and this film introduced Lucy, Groo's sidekick and eventual mother for the girls (the youngest girl's pretending of a proper mom came TRUE for real!), and the villain in this one was El-Macho, who's appearance defiantly echoes the Hispanic/Hot Mexican Mario to the Pizzano/Canadian default Mario, and they are actually improving the 3D this time around, making a standard turned old trend fad an effective device (though we still have to wait for an effective 8+ years for it to become the Spongebob 4D ride effective), and the animation is pretty fluid for a computer animated movie, defiantly better than a huge chunk of the crap that is Dreamworks Animation (Ugh, i'm glad i missed out on the Croods, and i defiantly will not bother with Turbo), and the difference with El Macho to Mario is that El-Macho is evil and Mario is always the good guy!, enough said here.......

    The story to this one is very complex and detailed, to the point where i can't explain, only see and parts of it were pretty funny indeed, like El-Macho's dance in the party especially!

    And the Chicken is pretty evil, no doubt [​IMG]!

    So, what do YOU all think of this one, huh?

    Not as funny as the first one, but it did have it's moments. There was even some genuine emotion involved as well. But some scenes seemed "by the numbers." So, for me it is entertaining enough, but no classic.

    I enjoyed the movie, and liked how the minions were used more. Overall, I liked the first movie more, but this one is still really cute.
