Mania Review: The Secret World of Arrietty (Article) - 2/21/2012 2:31:15 PM

Has anyone gone to see this film besides my best friend and I?.Gang,you are missing out on something special.I mst admit I had doubts,and was reluctant to see it,but my friend bought the Roman Album for "Arietty"and there was a shot of a single frame (in pencil)involving the title character and a grasshopper."Now I'm convinced!" I said.My friend shook his head sadly,with a "you-only-now-figured-it-out?"look on his face.Personally,I would rank it with "Pompoko" "Whisper Of The Heart" or "The Cat Returns".A great time.

The Top 16 Most Important Video Games of All Time (Article) - 9/7/2011 12:31:23 PM

Two of my personal favorite non-shoot-the-enemy-but-run-away-from-him games are Major Havok & Marble Madness.Sinistar,Robotron 2084 & Berzerk kick ass as well!.

WonderCon Moves South (Article) - 9/3/2011 9:56:58 AM

Maybe someone can help me out,as I'm a little confused.Does this mean the Wondercon 2012 move is just till the renovations are done or is it a permanent move?.Any info would be great.Thanks!

Good call on Animal Farm,momitchell17! H&B were at the top of their game with that one.Well done!

10 Overlooked Animated Features (Article) - 8/10/2011 12:31:50 PM

Great list!.Some truly obscure entries here.Some others would include Rock & Rule (1983) Gandahar a.k.a. Light Years (1985) Memories (1995) Plague Dogs (1981)? Time Masters (1987)? Cats Don't Dance (1997) Renaissance (2005)? Steamboy (2006)?,Interestingly,Time Masters & Gandahar were produced by Rene Laloux and Roland Topor,both creators of Fantastic Planet,meaning their work is not as widely seen here as in France.Plague Dogs was the follow-up from Watership Down for director Martin Rosen.One final choice would be When The Wind Blows (1985),England's Graveyard Of Fireflies.These all I highly recommend!

Mania Review: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (Article) - 8/8/2011 9:32:15 AM

Saw it opening day.Beautiful way to set up the series proper.Despite what Fox said about remaking the fourth (and in my opinion the most underrated of the bunch)film,this is NOT a remake.I don't want to discuss details from the original series to spoil it for those who haven't seen them,but I'm sure careful-eyed viewers will know what I'm talking about.I say again,this is NOT a remake.9 out of 10 rating!

10 Best Star Trek Moments (Article) - 8/1/2011 12:50:35 PM

My personal favorite moment:

 

KIRK:"My god,Bones...what have I done?"

BONES:"What you had to do..what you always do..turn death into a fighting chance to live"

Combine this with the fiery streak across the sky & James Horners' music makes me choke up every time.

And the Kelvin should be there instead of Vulcan.Great list though!

Mania Review: Cowboys and Aliens (Article) - 7/31/2011 10:26:31 AM

Sorry ,got my director's mixed up!.Last Iheard,Ridley Scott was supposed to direct this potential travesty.My apologies Mr. Scott shouldn't have doubted you!

Mania Review: Cowboys and Aliens (Article) - 7/31/2011 10:18:41 AM

Saw it on Friday,and loved it!.Craig & Ford are a great pair and as for Wilde,she played her part appropriatly.I give C&A a 7.5-8 out of 10.The trailer for Battleship is attached to C&A,and my god it looks horrible,I mean Battlefield Earth/Independence Day horrible.Ridley Scott has lost his mind.

Mania Review: Captain America (Article) - 7/23/2011 11:04:43 AM

Saw it yesterday,and I must say this movie ranks just below Superman (1978) as one of the best super-hero movies yet.Some details I liked(WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD!):1)Loved the reference to the original Human Torch at the World's Fair 2)Cap's USO outfit matching the 40's serial version albiet in color.3)"The Star-Spangled Man With a Plan"song made me misty-eyed.4)Parallels:CA-Peggy:"Go get him".Steve puts Peggy's photo on his altimeter.ROCKETEER-Valentine:"Go get 'em kid.Cliff puts Jenny's Photo on his altimeter.END SPOILERS.There were many other details I loved.The sepia-toned color palette was gorgeous as was Alan Silvestris' score.Joe Johnston' calling his friends from the old days at Disney over to help in the production was a joy.Plan to see this again on Monday.Don't miss it!
