    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.

    Shout! Factory, a leading multi-platform entertainment company, has acquired from EuropaCorp the United States distribution rights to Bibo Bergeron's CG-animated feature A Monster in Paris, produced by EuropaCorp.

    The announcement was made by Shout! Factory founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos, and Cécile Fouché, international sales manager of EuropaCorp.

    In this deal, Shout! Factory has secured U.S. rights to the movie, including home entertainment, digital distribution and broadcast for cross-platform releases. Shout! Factory plans a strategic rollout of these films on all packaged media, electronic-sell-through (EST), video-on-demand (VOD), subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) and television. A Monster in Paris is set to hit the U.S. home entertainment marketplace and a variety of digital entertainment platforms in early 2013.

    "We are incredibly excited about this new relationship with EuropaCorp, an internationally renowned studio recognized for its fantastic film productions. We look forward to presenting these films that deliver captivating cinematic experiences for families of all ages," stated Shout! Factory's founders. "We hope that this is just the start of a mutually beneficial relationship."

    Directed by and based on an original story by Bergeron (Shark Tale), A Monster in Paris boasts an impressive international voice cast of Vanessa Paradis (Café de Flore), singer/songwriter Sean Lennon, Adam Goldberg (A Beautiful Mind), Danny Huston (Hitchcock), Bob Balaban (For Your Consideration), Catherine O'Hara (Penelope) and Jay Harrington (Private Practice). This animated family adventure also features enchanting vocals by Vanessa Paradis and Sean Lennon, with music score by popular French singer/songwriter Matthieu Chedid (aka M) and Patrice Renson.

    A wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a massive mistake when let loose in a mad scientist's laboratory. With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally creates Franc, the product of a reaction between a common flea and one of the scientist's mystery concoctions. What they fail to realize, however, is that this "monster" is actually a soft-centered soul with a spooky talent for music.

    With the help of an enchanting nightclub singer, Franc becomes the talk of the town, just as stories of Paris's newest monster attract the attention of the egotistical police commissioner, hell-bent on securing a big prize to help his battle to become mayor. The unwitting scientists and the singer must team up to protect Franc, a monster with more than a musical career to protect!

    A Monster in Paris is a production of EuropaCorp, Bibo Films, France 3 Cinema and Walking The Dog. The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
