    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.

    What is your favourite Studio Ghibli film and why.

    Mine still has to be My Neighbour Totoro. Only because it was the first film I saw. I still love the scene where they make the acorns grow and the scene with the umbrella and frog.

    There are a lot, but my current Fave is the current release in the United States "Up On Poppy Hill" directed by Miyazaki's son Goro. It is a charming tale set in late 1950's Japan. I have not yet had a chance to see "The Wind Also Rises" which has released in Japan, but in not yet in release here. Nato. Salt Lake,, Utah.

    Spirited Away, which may be an obvious choice, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, which might also be an obvious choice. Thanks to an old penpal I have the Fox DVD of My Neighbor Totoro.

    I think mine is either Mononike Hime or Laputa Castle in the Sky. But I also like Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro quite a bit, although that is technically not a Ghibli movie.

    I hate to go with an obvious one, but Spirited Away, with Mononike Hime, and Grave of the Fireflies as very close runners up. Although once you get down to it all of the Studio Ghibli Films are amazing works of art.
