Views Cinderella

The animated classic gets a magical live-action retelling that should please audiences both young and old, while Frozen Fever proves to be a delightful follow-up to the Disney blockbuster.

Views Animation Addicts Podcast #91: Kung Fu Panda 2 – Kaboom of Doom

Views Tinker Bell And The Legend Of The Neverbeast

The Disney Fairy series gets a little darker with this tale of a monster-like creature, but the movie stays true to the messages of friendship and learning positive life lessons.

Views Animation Addicts Podcast #90: Kung Fu Panda – How to Train Your Dragon Warrior

It’s back to back DreamWorks films for the Rotoscopers! This episode we tackle the 2008 CGI film Kung Fu Panda.

Views Gladiators Of Rome

Lazy storytelling, uneven comedy and questionable subject matter combine in this Italian animation; somehow both bizarre and generic at the same time. Zero extras and mediocre audio tempt a big thumbs down.

Views Big Hero 6

It’s Frozen for the boys as Disney strikes back with their take on lesser-known characters from the pages of Marvel Comics for another, freshly Academy Award-winning blockbuster!

Views One Hundred And One Dalmatians: Diamond Edition

Walt Disney’s fantastic animated thriller makes a solid return to disc, here in an HD transfer that hits the spot and with a fairly robust package of old and new extras.

Views The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

While Sponge has the humor and style kids expect, it never reaches the amazing highs the show achieved in its glory days — this is one sponge who should’ve stayed underwater.

Views The Kingdom Of Dreams And Madness

This wonderful documentary grants a fascinating glimpse at how Studio Ghibli functioned in its final year with master director Hayao Miyazaki.

Views The Boxtrolls

Laika returns with another slightly oddball release, where the film’s strong villain isn’t quite matched by such a solid storyline, even if the hand-crafted animation is as exquisite as ever.

Views Uncle Grandpa: Tiger Trails

This fairly new Cartoon Network series gets its first DVD, without any special features to speak of. But the show itself ends up being hilarious, with a cast of fun, wacky characters and an enjoyably zany nature behind it all.

BOM projects a tight race for the weekend box with Home barely being edged out of first place with $33 million.
