Review: Norm of the North: Keys to the Kingdom

Why? Why why why? Why? Why why why why? WHY? Why are we here? Why do we live in the universe that not only gave us the original Norm of the North, a film so terrible that for a time it had a perfect zero on Rotten Tomatoes, but punished us ...

Review: Dragon Ball Super: Broly

I don't think I'm being hyperbolic when I say that Dragon Ball Z is one of the most important anime to ever exist. For many, Dragon Ball Z was how we became diehard anime fans in the first place. I remember watching Toonami as a kid and bei...

Deadpool cartoon may still be happening but no Donald Glover

Donald Glover's Deadpool cartoon would have been amazing. Sure, we didn't see anything of it aside from a test and Glover's hilarious takedown of its cancellation but I can guarantee it would have been the best. Sadly, we don't get nice thi...

I'm happy John Lasseter is leaving Disney

I've always had very conflicting feelings about Disney's former Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. This was even before the frequent sexual harassment claims, which led him to take a six-month sabbatical last year before announ...
