    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.

The critics' history with Warner bros.

    Hello everyone,,
    From 2001-2011, the thought of paying of critics was not in anyone's mind. Therefore, all of the harry potter films got good reviews at least.

    In the years since, disney came up with the idea of offering bribes to critics for certain films (mostly the animated films and live action films released by marvel and lucasfilm). This idea later extended into bribing sites for negative reviews to the films by their competitors.

    In 2016, disney let Warner bros know that if they didn't pay disney a certain amount of blackmail, they would attack the reputation of fantastic beasts 1 in numerous ways. Not wanting to be wrongfully attacked after the brutal beatdown of BVS and suicide squad (caused by Disney's tactics), they gave in and the reviews continued to be positive as a result.

    In 2018, disney let Warner bros know of their intentions again. Since then though, the management changed at Warner bros (caused by the at&t merger) and they refused to back down. As a result, disney used numerous tactics to attacks fantastic beast's 2 reputation.

    Some critics were bribed directly to give it negative reviews while for other sites, disney bribed the management to replace a chosen critic with one that had been always unfavorable towards the wizarding world.

    Also, disney planted shills on forums like reddit to hijack subreddits like this one to speak against fantastic beasts and praise disney. This movie is actually amazing by the way.

    Well, Disney is no stranger to mudslinging tactics, as there's a pitch package for the Disney Afternoon cartoons that vilifies the Looney Tunes. But outright bribery is a serious charge, if true. Can you site any sources for these claims, such as FCC complaints or Snopes.Com?
