My first ever “Should I Toon In” video. I think it’s only fitting that I look at a Pixar movie for this medium shift: (Warniung: I do talk spoilers in this review, but I give you warning to click off before I get to them)
Everybody was all excited about the deal that Sony Pictures and Disney brokered, which allowed Spider-man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are promises for more movies with Peter, and that is nice, but not great. Here’s the reason it is not great…
Spider-man is built for TV series, not movies…
…and that debut should be on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Daddy is writing his first column in ages. Even moreso than even Star Wars, I am SUPER highly anticipating the 2015 Dragon Ball Z theatrical film. 2 hours long, the biggest dick in the Universe is back, new costumes for Goku, the return of Beerus and Whis, Kuririn is bald again, and who knows what else; that movie poster’s got me hard.
It’s time for a new Should I Toon In. Animated shows come in a variety of flavors. There are plentiful comedies like Animaniacs or Tiny Toons. Sci Fi and Action are also highly represented in animation as well. One genre however that is often over looked is horror. Oh, I’m not talking about stuff like Ghostbusters, I’m talking real horror. It’s a shame too because everyone loves a ghost story and animation is a great medium for delivering one. Don’t believe me? Well check out the show we’re talking about this week: Yamishibai.
It’s time once again for another edition of “Should I Toon In?” Teen Titans on Cartoon Network was honestly one of my favorite cartoons of that era. It had strong likeable characters, great humor and great action. Sadly after 5 seasons the show came to a close but at least it left with one amazing two-part climax. However this episode isn’t about THAT Teen Titans. If it was I’d tell you to go out and watch it right now. Nope, this episode is about the new spinoff/reimagining of Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go. How does this one compare to it’s original? Let’s find out shall we?
Here’s a couple educational videos about spiders and turtles, presented in the form of Spider-Man and TMNT. Educational, funny, and full of NOPE.
Welcome to a very special edition of “Should I Toon In?”. Yes, Japanuary may be over but I would be remiss that I didn’t honor it’s memory by looking at one of the wackiest animes I ever watched back in the day. Today I look at Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi.
Should I Toon In? Gravity Falls
Greetings all, make sure you have your rucksacks packed with disposible cameras, garlic, and magnifying glasses because we’re going to be taking a trip out to Gravity Falls, Oregon. Why would we want to go to Gravity Falls you might ask? Because that’s the setting of the newest cartoon on the Disney Channel and that’s also the show I’ll be taking a look at on this edition of Should I Toon In!
Okay – why am I busy posting Simpsons videos (albeit CLASSIC ones) instead of working on my Green Lantern review?
FOX announced today that Seth MacFarlane (creator of Family Guy), after years of negotiations, has acquired the rights to The Flintstones and will be rebooting the franchise as a TV and film property beginning in 2013.
