    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.

    Walt Disney Animation has its newest animated feature, Zootopia, tentatively scheduled for a Friday 4 March 2016 release. It's certainly not the first anthropomorphic production by Disney, but it does take the antagonists-become-allies mechanism from Bolt and The Emperor's New Groove, and puts a new spin on it. Disney's been on a roll lately, so I'm getting good vibes about this. Anyone else?

    I saw the trailer just the other day, and it does look interesting.

    The directors for the film, Rich Moore and Byron Howard, gave an interview about Zootopia's development and milieu at the Annecy Animation Festival. Note how they steer clear of divulging plot points; it's all world-building and character chemistry.

    I viewed it on premiere weekend. Full theatre. Some scary moments for the kiddies but a nice adventure with many clever sight gags and dialogue. The parallels with animal species and human race relations were well thought out.

    One more in agreement here, plus this one's been lighting up the board over at TV Tropes and on Rotten Tomatoes. I've seen it once with ticklings of spoilers in my head, and I want to see it again just to catch many more of the nuances and subtler clues. I'm seeing some parallels with Cats Don't Dance, in that a pie-eyed optimist comes to the Big City, and has their hopes and dreams smashed to pieces by Grim Reality. And in both cases, it was an engineered disaster. I don't care that Zootopia is "troperrific" or not, it's still mighty fine story-building. Disney has got its groove back.
