    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.

    With the Notre Dame fire I was wondering the cartoons set in France and Paris.

    There can be cartoon episodes where someone goes to France, we can include The Rugrats in Paris or The Hunchback of Notre Dame, or even Pepe le Pew.

    Right off the bat, there's the award-winning Les Triplettes du Belleville. Oh, and of course, there's Pixar's Ratatouille.

    Oh! Another Academy Award winner: La Maison en Petits Cubes by Kunio Kato from 2008. The Japanese director made a touching film,but his grasp of French is off. Properly, the title should be La Maison des Petits Cubes. It's the story of worldwide flooding that compels French people to build new structures atop existing ones before the lower level is completely submerged. One old French widower drops his smoking pipe down a floor hatch, and dons a pressure suit to retrieve it.

    Let's not forget "The Great Pussycat Chase" which began and ended in Paris, with Josie and The Pussycats trying to prevent the Shadow from stealing a black box that had been entrusted to them. Also, there was an episode of The Osmonds set in Paris. Finally, there was the Yogi Bear episode in which he and Boo-Boo went to Paris after winning a contest, and Yogi infamously asked for ketchup to put on a filet mignon. Oh, I almost forgot The Man Called Flintstone had the gang traveling to Paris, then Rome.

    Not the whole film, but one critical part of it: Looney Tunes: Back In Action necessitates a tour of the Louvre; in particular, to view La Joconde through a filter. Beneath the enigmatic lady lies a map of Africa, with an X marking the site of the Blue Monkey diamond. The villain's elite mook Bob kidnaps humorless Kate Houghton, and brings her to the upper tier of the Eiffel Tower.

    Of course, how can I forget! There is also Beauty and the Beast that takes place in France.

    Going all the way back to 1934, there's La Joie de Vivre by Anthony Gross and Hector Hoppin at Animat Studio. Two nubile nymphs go for a walk, and somehow traverse the electric wires of a transformer substation without getting fried. After that, they encounter a river, and immediately fling off their clothes and swim nude. In France, at that time, going topless was no big deal, and skinny-dipping was perfectly acceptable.
