    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.

    Until fairly recently the two Disney animated feature-length films not yet released on DVD were the underrated Black Cauldron, and the un-PC Song of the South. I always thought that BC was unfairly underrated. Most critics panned it, and apparently so did most of the audience, which surpirsed me becasue I remmebered kids squealing with excitement in the theater back when it was released. One critic even said it was "inconceivable" that anyone would actaully want to own it in Entertainment weekly. In a move I now very much regret, I sent a letter of disagreement to the magazine(a polite letter, just a stupid one, as I didn't realize that MOuse Detective cost much less than Cauldorn did). I'd say that the recent Treasure Planet is underratted in the same way.
    As for Song of the South, it remains the only feature left. The folks in charge of Disney are just too Politically Correct to release it, and it shows since a lot of what the studio does produce noways seems to contain PC messages, and entertainment is secondary. Does ayone else think Song of the South SHOULD be released?

    I think so. I wonder if people aren't judging "Song of the South" too harshly.

    Song of the South SHOULD be released for history purposes...The Deep South was different back then.

    Look at Gone With The Wind...It's talked about now but it's a part of American History we can learn from.
