Blu-ray
Views Batman Vs. Robin: Exclusive Figure Edition

The script tries hard to make a sophisticated story of father-son conflict, but the movie’s action-fueled direction brings it closer to being just another fight-filled exercise in excess.

The Rotoscopers
Views Animation Addicts Podcast #93: Pinocchio – Now That’s How You Do a Sidekick

When you wish upon a podcast, you get the Rotoscopers reviewing Walt Disney’s 2nd masterpiece, the 1940 classic Pinocchio.

DVD
Views More Cartoons For Victory!

More Thunderbean greatness! Foreign propaganda, rare Private Snafu Quick Facts, footage from the First Motion Picture Unit, and rarities from Disney and UPA make this an outstanding collection of wartime shorts.

DVD
Views Noveltoons: Original Classics

Thunderbean shows us how Famous Studios lived up to the Fleischer name, at least in the 1940s, with this collection of wonderful cartoons. Those that thought Famous meant “second rate” are in for a surprise.

The Rotoscopers
Views Animation Addicts Podcast #92: Watership Down – Complete with Criterion Snobbery

The Rotoscopers go across the pond to review the highly requested cult classic 1978 British film Watership Down.

Book
Views Frozen: The Poster Collection

Disney keeps the Frozen merchandising wheel a-turning with an oversized print presentation of 40 pull-out-and-frame poster images. Most collectors will likely keep the book intact – if they can fit it onto their shelves!

Film
Views Home

Home is a lackluster and innocuous affair that will, at best, be forgotten about the day after you see it, or at worst, make you ask if you can has those ninety minutes back.

Film
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.

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

We just love kung fu! Last episode the Rotoscopers reviewed Kung Fu Panda and we just couldn’t get enough. This episode, they review the 2011 sequel Kung Fu Panda 2!

Blu-ray
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.

AV Interactive
Views AV Interactive #5: DreamWorks Disorder

To celebrate the release of DreamWorks’ 31st feature, Home, show off how familiar you are with their history! Arrange these twelve films into the order they were released.

The Rotoscopers
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.

DVD
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.

Blu-ray
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!

The Rotoscopers
Views Animation Addicts Podcast #88: Shrek – The Anti-Fairytale

The Rotoscopers review DreamWorks’ second CGI animated film–the amazing, hilarious, irreverent Shrek.

Tooning In
Views Oscar Night 2015

The biggest night in movies is here…even if none of the movies themselves are that big! Come be part of our 11th Oscar event, with live show chat, our contest winners, and the consensus picks from our readers!

The Rotoscopers
Views Animation Addicts Podcast #87: The Secret of NIMH – Too Many “J” Names

All good things must come to a close–it’s the final film in the Mice & Rats podcast series, Don Bluth’s debut film The Secret of NIMH.

Blu-ray
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.

Film
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.

DVD
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.

Blu-ray
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.

AV Interactive
Views Animated Views’ 2015 Oscar Contest

Film
Views Strange Magic

Want a head start to making a great movie? It’s no secret. You just need a good solid story. Otherwise you’ll have to resort to cheap tricks and strange magic.

The Rotoscopers
Views Animation Addicts Podcast #86: Once Upon a Forest – How Alvin and the Chipmunks Save the Forest

The fans voted and the Rotoscopers delivered! Chelsea, Morgan and Mason’s Rats and Mice Series on Once Upon a Forest!
