    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 saw a trailer of American Pop and...even though it was made in 1981...should it be redone for the genres since 1981?

    Should it? Either way, it'll be a very subjective answer. As a practical matter, Ralph Bakshi is old and mostly retired. He no longer has the staff, the studios, the capital or any of the real creative energy an animated film requires. Someone else could pick it up, but this'd be an indie project; Hollywood is too much of a closed shop to make a sequel to American Pop. In fact, I'd say Bakshi is a non-person by the Hollywood movie industry's regard.

    Okay...the only person that could do this is maybe Jon K.

    Only because he worked with Bakshi...however...his genre is more adult slapstick and surrealism.
