    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.

When did Ra's Al Ghul become one of Batman's greatest villains?

    When I go on a list of Batman's greatest villains, I'm surprised that Ra's Al Ghul is frequently placed as number 2. Usually, he's only second to the Joker as Batman's greatest villain and a contender for archenemy. In terms of scope, it seems he's considered even more dangerous than Joker since his plans affect the entire world.

    Yet when I think of Batman, I tend to think of the more colorful villains and odd villains like Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, Penguin, and Two Face. Ra's Al Ghul does have prominence in TAS and the Dark Knight Trilogy but I'm wondering when he started establishing his reputation as one of, if not the greatest villain of the Batman's rogues gallery.

    While I'd leave the ranking to others (probably based on personal taste anyway),Ra's does have a lot going for him as a formidable Bat-villain.His immense wealth,his League of Assassins (tougher than your everyday henchmen),along with the fact he is one of,if not the only foe to figure out Batman's dual identity.Another interesting wrinkle is his daughter Talia,who loves Batman.Ra's probably wouldn't mind having Batman as a son-in-law,provided Bruce would let go of his pesky sense of morality.
