My Little Pony: The Movie

The surprisingly action-packed My Little Pony: The Movie should delight fans of the series, while newcomers can appreciate the splashy animation and great songs.


The Powerpuff Girls: The Last Donnycorn

The Powerpuff Girls come dangerously close to not saving the day in this disappointingly underwhelming collection of episodes.


DuckTales

Woo-hoo!


Rick And Morty: Rickmancing The Stone

Adult Swim’s brilliant series is back for its third season, possibly more hilarious and twisted than ever. If you’re not already watching it, now’s the time to start.


The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie is a stupid idea for an animated movie which is also probably better than it deserves to be.


Despicable Me 3

Though it’s elevated by plenty of laughs and a fun new bad guy, Despicable Me 3 would’ve benefited from a little more focus…and, dare we say it, more Minions.


Mickey And The Roadster Racers

This Mickey Mouse Clubhouse spin-off offers plenty of slapstick-heavy action for kids, even as some adults wonder how much mileage Disney can get out of it.


The Powerpuff Girls: Tiara Trouble

Though it may not capture the absurd magic of the original series, the new Powerpuff Girls still provides plenty of laughs for both kids and adults.


Trolls: Party Edition

The delightful DreamWorks musical hit looks great on disc, even if the number of extras included isn’t exactly hair-raising.


Trolls

Its hairy heroes and pop tunes won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those in the mood for cheery fun, Trolls provides plenty of charms.


DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year

Cute, spunky, and light on its feet, DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year should be super fun for its target audience.


Alice Through The Looking Glass

Spectacular visuals and a wonderful performance from Sasha Baron Cohen make this a Trip Through the Looking Glass worth taking.


Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Holy letdown! The cast is great and the action is cool, but Dawn of Justice is bat-frustrating and not quite super enough.


Open Season: Scared Silly

Despite some laughs, Open Season: Scared Silly lacks the oddball charm–and heart–that made the original so much fun.


Kung Fu Panda 3

The martial arts trilogy has a satisfying conclusion, warm, funny, and with a heart as big as its panda hero’s tummy.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Even with a somewhat uneven tone, J.J. Abrams crafts a truly magical and nostalgic trip back to a galaxy far, far away. Our review is (mostly) spoiler-free.


The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar

The story may not be king, but terrific animation and catchy songs make The Lion Guard a worthy adventure for its target audience. Kids will adore it.


Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles

The Force is fun with this one, providing cheeky Robot Chicken-style humor that Star Wars fans of all ages should find hilarious.


The Seventh Dwarf

Lazy, unfunny, and annoying, this German Disney knock-off offers very little to like. In fact, it will probably leave you feeling very “Grumpy” when it’s over.


Miles From Tomorrowland: Let’s Rocket!

“Blastastic!” Slick animation, likable characters, and engaging plots make Miles From Tomorrowland an unexpectedly smart children’s show.


Turbo: F.A.S.T.

Turbo: F.A.S.T. is a surprisingly entertaining treat. With zippy plots and a genuine sense of fun, these snails should be fast enough to please both kids and adults.


Dinotrux

DreamWorks’ latest series may not offer much for adults, but it’s harmless for little kids, and painless enough for parents to not wish for it to become extinct.


Ant-Man

While no where near being one of Marvel’s best, Ant-Man is still perfectly decent summer entertainment…albeit on a smaller scale.


Rick & Morty

“Wuba-luba-dub-dub!” Smart, twisted, and very funny, Rick & Morty continues to be one of the best cartoon shows on television for adults.


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.


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.


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.


Toy Story That Time Forgot

The latest adventure starring everyone’s favorite toys proves to be a fun one, with cool new characters and great jokes. Just don’t expect it to feel like a Christmas special.
