    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.

    French actress Perrette Pradier, nicknamed the "Queen" or "High Priestess" of dubbing for her voice work, died overnight Tuesday at her Rueil-Malmaison, France home, where she had been convalescing following a heart attack. She was 75.

    Pradier had been operated on for an aneurysm a month ago.

    She was the voice of Sarafina in the French version of the 1994 Walt Disney Studios animated feature film The Lion King. As well, she was Medusa in the French dub of Disney's The Rescuers (1977), and provided the singing voice of old gargoyle Laverne in the studio's The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) and The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2.

    She dubbed evil Ursula of The Little Mermaid in Mickey's House of Villains (2002). As well, she was Orddu in The Black Cauldron, the Queen in A Bug's Life, Eema in Dinosaur, the Mouse Queen in The Great Mouse Detective, Atropos the Fate in Hercules, and the Matchmaker in Mulan II.

    Other American cartoon films included An American Tail (1986).

    In French productions, she voiced Ma Dalton in the 1984 TV series Lucky Luke. She was Milady in the 1974 cartoon movie Les trois mousquetaires and Massmédia in the 1985-87 animated TV series Les mondes engloutis (The Engulfed Worlds).

    She was also in the voice casts of the TV special Les Dalton en cavale (1983) and Le Big Bang (1987).

    She was born Perrette Marie Mathilde Chevau on April 17, 1938 in Hanoi, Vietnam. Eventually, she appeared in about 30 films, beginning in 1961. Two years after her debut, she won the Prix Suzanne Bianchetti as most promising new actress in France for her performance as Amenita in the Sacha Guitry film Stop Thief.

    Pradier also had roles in live theatre, including the longest-running French play ever produced, Boeing Boeing.
