    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.

    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.

    "Kung Fu Panda" is expected to screen non-competitively at this year's Cannes Film Festival as one of the few United States offerings, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.

    Members of the voice cast -- which includes Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu and Dustin Hoffman -- are expected to jet into the French resort to support the DreamWorks animated feature.

    Kung Fu Panda is scheduled for general North American release June 6.Cannes runs from May 14 through May 28.

    Just one American film, Charlie Kaufman's directorial debut Synecdoche, New York, is expected to be shown in a competitive spot, Variety reported Thursday.

    Last year, several U.S. entries figured at Cannes, including the Coen Brothers' No Country For Old Men, David Fincher's Zodiac and Gus van Sant's Paranoid Park.

    But this year's American offerings are few and far between. The shortage of U.S. material has been attributed to uncertainty over production schedules caused by the recent Writers Guild of America strike.

    Also premiering non-competitively will be Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, scheduled to be shown May 18. The fourth Indiana Jones outing is expected to be one of Cannes' biggest draws, as director Steven Spielberg, producer George Lucas, and stars Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf are likely to attend.

    Barry Levinson's film industry satire What Just Happened, starring Robert De Niro, will close the festival.

    The Cannes Film Festival will announce its lineup officially next Wednesday.
