    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.

    Looking at those first Mickey Mouse cartoons, you have to be astonished by how far animation has come in 90 years. There was no color, and even sound was still a novelty.

    Speaking of which: the early Mickey Mouse from Plane Crazy borrows heavily from the playful rogue archetype of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who was wrested from Walt Disney when Charles Mintz lured co-animator Ub Iwerks away. In Plane Crazy, Mickey is an opportunist and a daredevil, and even lures Minnie aboard to steal kisses, knowing she can't escape at altitude. Later, once Mickey caught on with the public, Walt Disney realized that Mickey was poised to become the figurehead of the studio. Walt duly gave Mickey the enema of a lifetime, flushing all the Satan juice out of him. All further villainy would be handled by designated villains for Mickey to thwart, earning his Smooch Of Victory.
