    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.

Anyone seeing the live-action reboots?

    I'm not a fan of remakes or sequels, but...since Disney is on a roll with the live-action versions of Disney movies like Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King...anyone have interest in these films?

    Not me. Disney built itself on animated films and on theme parks. I get that making movies is usually a profitable venture, and Disney has satellite studios such as Touchstone Pictures that churn them out. But these live action remakes seem like brand dilution: they're losing focus on what makes Disney magical.

    I only saw Beauty and the Beast. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. After that, I've been weary about seeing remakes. Especially Dumbo. They just added stuff to make the movie longer and from what I heard, I'm glad I missed it.
    I rather see them do something original. These remakes are really getting old.

    I completely agree...these films are basically saying "let's make a quick buck and forget creativity"!
