The Slayers Perfect (Aug 5, 1995), Slayers: The Motion Picture
Director: Lazuo Tamazaki, Hiroshi Watanabe, Producers: Toru Suzuki
Fantasy, Comedy, Parody, Adventure,
Key Words: Time Travel, Magic,
Studio: J.C.Staff Licensed American Publisher: A.D. Vision

Time: 75 minutes

Lina and Naga take a boat trip to the magically disappearing island of Mipross for a nice relaxing hot springs relaxation. But knowing Lina and Naga, something is bound to happen, and it does. A time-traveling wizard by the name of Rowdy Gabriev asks Lina to help destroy a demon that has pretty much made Mipross his playground.

My Thoughts:This is quite an interesting show basically going along the lines of the OVA rather then the TV show. You know the one with the really scantily clad Naga the Serpent. Now though I really don’t like Naga, I do like the movies plot. This story has Lina heading to an elf town and defeating a demon. It would be no different then any other episode except this is when she is first introduced to the sword of light.

Naga is a really stupid woman who couldn’t even tell when someone is actually a bandit. Sometimes I think the only reason they brought her in is to make a reason for Lina to go the island where the story takes place. The bandits are extremely stupid, and I have to say they didn’t show any thought in creating them. All the teams seem to be families. Other enemies seem to do long winded explanations on what there diabolical plans are before they even fight Lina (Of course, I don’t understand how everyone knows her on the island as well but that’s another story). Other characters seem as though they were quickly put together and given stupid names.

Sadly, most of the show does have a rather ‘filler’ feeling about it. The ending was rather anti-climatic, only about 10 minutes of the long movie so it feels bland in that aspect. I may have loved the journey, but the finish line felt like it was lacking.

The artwork shows its age rather nicely actually. It means that the show might look rather old but it to me, it’s almost a classic. The style while slightly rough has a lot of detail in the backgrounds and even in some characters that move around. The monsters are a little generic but extremely detailed in how they move and attack. They must have put a decent amount of money into this when it was made.

The English voices are sometimes ok, though a couple of the girls voices sound like they are straining there voice, but it doesn’t get to bad. Lina really sounds whinny, Cynthia Martinez makes her sound like she is on the verge of losing her voice most of the time for how high pitched she is. Phil Ross on the other hand makes a great Rowdy and David Bell does do a really good of Young Rowdy, making them seem like they really could have been the same voice. Again, I wasn’t keen on Naga’s stupid laugh. I can give props to Kelly Manison for doing a pretty good job on the voice though, for playing a rather annoying character to begin with anyway. The script though is sometimes cheesy and sometimes rather cleaver with the jokes. It made the show stand out in that fashion. I do have some problems with the dub in that once in a while they throw a curve ball into the mix like having the demon cry out Sylvester’s saying from Looney Toons or some other parody. It may work in some extent for American watchers but for those that look for a closer dubbing, this is not one. I’m also not into the change that they did to the signature spells that Lina has.

It’s sad whenever I have to review a show that I like and it falls short. Sadly, I can’t give this a 5 star rating but it is worth watching if you like a bit of comedy or the normal TV and OVA shows of slayers. Plus, as said in the description, this does actually link to Gourry Gabriev from the TV show so its kind of funny seeing the link.

The octopus put a spell on the whole town making everyone speak their language, takogo, and making everyone have problems. Casters like Lina can't use spells then since it must be spoken in common language. If that wasn't bad enough, the octopus want to raise a demon that was sealed away long ago in order to get back at the villagers. What is Lina going to do now?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit(June 22, 1988)
Director: Robert Zemeckis Producers: Frank Marshall, Robert Watts
Action, Mystery, Comedy, Noir,
Key Words: Murder, American Movie,
Studio: Amblin Entertainment, Walt Disney Feature, Animation, Silver Screen Partners III Licensed American Publisher: Touchstone Pictures

Time: 104 minutes

Roger Rabbit is a 1947 Cartoon Character who finds that his wife has been cheating on him threw Eddie Valiant, a privet investigator hired by Roger's boss R. K. Maroon. Suddenly, the guy she was cheating with, Marvin Acme (owner of Toon Town and the Acme Corporation) ends up dead. Fingers turn to Roger and he, Valiant, and Roger's sexy wife, Jessica need to find out who framed him or the tunes hit the 'DIP', a strange liquid that can actually kill a toon. Can they find Acme's will and save Roger from death?

My Thoughts: This show has a little bit of nostalgia for me. The first time I watched the show, it was with my parents and we were having a fun family night together. It feels very close to the idea of Space Jam in both the good and bad aspects. Now this actually was surprising to me that it was based off a actual book by Gary K. Wolf named “Who Censored Roger Rabbit.” In the book though, Roger is the one killed instead. It is unclear why they changed the story line a bit but I actually like this new idea better, making it have a little more suspense.

When we get into the story line, it’s a little odd because of how the main character was actually created as a mixture of many different cartoons in and of themselves. Roger has the nut shaped head like Tex Avery, red swatch of hair like Droopy, Overalls like Goofy, a bow tie like Porky Pig, gloves like Mickey Mouse, and cheeks and ears like Bugs Bunny. Even his personality is like Goofy and Daffy Duck in how he always seems to mess up.

On the other hand, Eddie Valiant was a serious character, a private investigator who became a alcoholic when a toon killed his brother. There were many people who the producer wanted but I actually think that Bob Hoskins was the perfect choice in how he looks and acts. It makes him feel a bit more filled out as being the somewhat overweight and once in a while dopey looking private investigator.

The animation is alright for the time it came out, the characters still look rather plastic and its like they tried to hard to make them look 3D. The only really good part of the animation in this is that when they get into toon town, at least they didn’t op for the animated toon world rather then the flat panel that Cool World used.

The voices are pretty good, though some of the normal cartoons sound pretty off when they get on stage. I don’t think they had the right voice actors for the toons so got as close as they could.

Aladdin (1992)
Director: Ron Clements, John Musker Producers: Ron Clements, John Musker
Action-Adventure, Comedy, Low Fantasy,
Key Words: Genie, Magic, Disney,
Studio: Walt Disney Feature Animation

Time: 90 minutes ( 1 hour, 30 minutes)

The Grand Vizier to the Sultan of Agrabah, Jafar, has been trying to get his hands on the magical lamp of the Genie but everyone he sends into the cave had been deemed unworthy. In his frustration, he turns to a young street rat named Aladdin and tricks him into getting the lamp but Aladdin's friend, a small monkey named Abu, messes it up and he is plunged into the depths of the cave. When he rubbed the lamp, he meets the Genie who promises to grant him three wishes. Aladdin uses these wishes to try to win the hand of his love, the beautiful Princess Jasmine. But Jafar has another idea for him.

My Thoughts: This show has a lot of good things going for it, at least much more then the second movie. The story line follows the book and yet, it has a happier ending then that one. It’s not a real spoiler because if you haven’t seen this one, you might have never seen this, go out and watch it now. It’s a big classic.

The characters are rather filled out, the personalities fleshed out down to little details. It’s nice to get back to the classics. Aladdin is the normal Robin Hood character; he almost always looks after people who can’t really fend for themselves even if he would go home hungry. Although he’s a street rat, he dreams of being part of the world of aristocrats, not starving and able to relax. He is the opposite of Jasmine, who is only trying to get away from it all and be free. Both feel trapped in their own world. I guess in a sense, the Genie is also trapped, so it makes them all more believable. They feel each other’s pains and problems.

Jafar is one of the best Disney villains I think. He does all the right moves and yet, sometimes, it seems like he uses Iago a little too much for his ideas.

Some little things are not bothersome in the artwork, when Rasha bights the prince, he has a piece of his boxers even though they are intact when he storms away. Its little things like that that makes it not as good as it could be but when it was drawn on cells, it is easy to excuse them. When they bring in the CG though, it looks rather bad though there aren’t many times they use it.

I like some of the voices, Genie’s the most though. It's so fun and comical that even at the most drama filled times, he loosens it up. I’m not sure about the music though, it just feels so childish. I mean, it fits the show well but I would have liked a little more adult fashioned songs too.

Aladdin 2: The Return of Jafar(May 20, 1994)
Director: Tad Stones, Alan Zaslove Producers: Tad Stones, Alan Zaslove
Action-Adventure, Comedy, Low Fantasy,
Key Words: Genie, Magic, Disney, Revenge
Licensed American Publisher: Walt Disney Home Video

Time:69 minutes (1 hour 9 minutes)

The gang is back, and not a moment to soon. Jafar's lamp has been found and in the wrong hands it seems he want's revenge. Can Jasmine and Aladdin ford his plans a second time?

My Thoughts: So… wow… what should I really talk about here? It’s bad, so it’s hard to center on just one thing. The characters are choppy, the story line is unexplained for the most part, and the voices make me cringe most of the time especially Iago. I mean, It was fine when he had very little screen time but this feels like its catering to him. I mean, Iago’s singing voice is so freaken bad! IT HURTS MY EARS! More on that in the voices part.

According to Genie, he is supposed to have less power now that he’s free but we see him doing all the things he used to before he was free. There is also the fact Aladdin hasn’t married Jasmine and yet even though they are engaged, he does a lot of stupid stuff in order to get money and give it to the poor. What is he? Robin Hood of the desert? The Personalities of all the characters might have been good in the first, but they should have grown by now. Also, the Genie is way to annoying.

Seriously, they just milked this series for all it was worth. Even the ‘new villian’ feels off and I don’t even know if we can consider him a villain. He seems to be too dopey to be a villain.

The animation is cheep and unappealing for most of the time. Most of the wonderful styles seem under played and I think part of it was the long gap between the two movies. There is also a lot of inconsistencies in the artwork.

There are way too many singing in this show again. And it has to be Iago’s singing it looks like it. Again, I HATE THE SINGING! I don’t see anime doing this all the time… and please don’t try to tell me about an anime they did like this.

As Lewis turns on his invention, it backfires and sends the room into chaos. Upset, he leaves as a Bowler Hat Guy and his robotic Bowler hat named Doris steals and repairs the scanner. Wilbur goes to Lewis and proves he is from the future, bringing him forward in time to his home and he ends up meeting the Robinsons.

My Thoughts: The story is actually a very creative and wonderful idea for a show. Pretty much, it’s about a kid trying to find a place where he belongs, but keeps getting told he doesn’t until going back in time. It pretty much is full of characters but very little actually make a difference in the story line.

Wilbur is interesting, almost a opposite of Lewis in some smarts and how easy he is to act a bit crazy… alright, so maybe not opposite. I wish they had talked more about the family characters since they seem really interesting. The Bowler hat guy is rather odd although he was well put together in his reasoning for doing what he does and without Doris, he wouldn’t be able to do anything.

The animation is perfect and the comedy is so funny! I can’t believe some of the funny games that they do. Character designs make them all stand out even if they don’t have much of a presence. It is very well done in the textures and modeling although most things look like they were done with nurbs instead of polys. For those that don’t know animation, that’s when everything has soft edges and look like its squishy all the time. (Ya, I know that makes little sense but just go with it, I’m a 3D artist…)

The voices are actually really well done and perfect for what its worth, yet I don’t really have anything to compare it to like anime shows. Unfortunately, when its good like this, there really isn’t much that I can pick out that isn’t good. It just pretty good.

Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic (Fep 9, 2010)
Director: Shukou Murase, Yasuomi Umetsu, Mike Disa, Victor Cook, Jong-Sik Nam, Sang-Jin Kim, Lee Seung-Gyu
Fantasy, Philosophical, Romance,
Key Words: Gore, Religion, Sex, Torture, Betrayal, nudity,
Studio: Production I.G.; Film Roman; Dong Woo Animation; Manglobe; JM Animation; Moi Animation; Digital eMation; BigStar

Time: 100 minutes (1 hour 40 min)

During the Third Crusade, Dante was a Crusader General who despite his faith, committed numerous acts against God during the act of war. At Acre, he was entrusted to keep a group of Saracen prisoners safe so that King Richard could obtain the holy relic from Saladin. Unfortunately, the prisoners were brutally slaughtered and Dante was given orders to take the relic but during the attack, he was stabbed in the back by an assassin. Death appears before him and despite being led to believe his sins were absolved, Death condemns him to be everlasting damnation for his sins. Dante refuses to accept and in his rage at being lied to by the Bishop, fights death and wins, taking his scythe. When he leaves Acre, he stitches a cross shaped red tapestry onto his torso, showing the sins he committed and returns to Florence where he finds his lover, Beatrice Portinari, and his father, Alighiero, murdered. Beatrice’s soul comes back to see him, only to be stolen by Lucifer into hell. Dante follows, going threw the seven gates of hell to save her from his grasp.

My Thoughts: The story line is a little different then the actual game and the language is a bit forced. They used old time language which means its heavy in old English. But the voices are perfect and don’t change from what they should be.

The worst parts that they changed the facts of who sowed the cross on Dante’s chest. It meant more when Dante was the one that placed it on him self. It showed he was willing to look at his sins where when it was placed on by some supernatural creature, then it shows he is forced to look at what has happened. It is a little bothersome that they had to change the whole reasoning for that.

The art style changes a bit threw the show like each circle was drawn by a different person, and I think it’s because there were way too many people working on this one movie. Each director pretty much got a piece of hell to work with and I guess they never shared the design of the main character with one another because Dante and Virgil really do not look the same though out the show. The only style that feels like it belongs is the first one, mostly the reason why I had kept watching. The first one shows a style much like a American Comic Book character. Normally I didn’t like that style, but I like it for this one. It has a rather nice idea of a hero who had to overcome everything for the one he loved.

As the story keeps going, sadly, some of the circles seem to be cut short and its sad because some of the areas could of just excluded a bit to give them equal time.

How Virgil acts, it seems that he is trying to make Dante destroy Hell. Take it as you will on that but it’s what it feels like to me. For all it’s worth, It is a good one even if the art style changes.

Sailor Moon and the 7 Ballz
Hentai, Parody,
Key Words: Futanari,
Studio: MMG

Time: 60 minutes

Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask are about to get married and they have invited a couple different characters from other Animes. When the characters from Dragonball come in and a dragonball leaves them and goes into Sailor Moon’s pussy and gives her a dick.

My Thoughts: WHAT THE CRAP? First off, this is poorly done and the storyline is a load of crap. It’s pretty much a way of getting the characters together to pretty much rape our childhood. I will never get this out of my mind I think sadly. Shoot me now… The characters don’t have any type of personality behind them except for being a 2D sex mock up.

The animation is really bad, the characters do not look like the characters they are supposed to and I don’t think the makers of this even cared to know what the other shows were about. They just wanted to make a quick buck by creating something they thought would get a lot of fan people (mostly men) to by this crap. It’s all pretty much blocky moving characters and comedic relief style gags that aren’t funny. I think the funnier thing about this is someone actually made it!

The voice acting is so freaking bad! This is like worse then the worst normal dub. It partly sounds like the damn Sims when they talk and there are so many bad sounds in this that I don’t know why I even let someone ask me to review this! The music sounds like a bad case of a game engine going off with little in the name of actual scores. Trust me guys… I don’t think you should watch it…

Rating: Not even a half star. This is bad and I mean BAD!

Cool World(July 10, 1992)
Director: Ralph Bakshi Producers: Frank Mancuso, Jr.
Black Comedy, Romance, Action,
Key Words: Cartoons, Live Action, Parallel Worlds, Mature Content,
Studio: Paramount Pictures Licensed American Publisher: Paramount Pictures

Time: 102 minutes

In 1945, a World War II veteran, Frank Harris, returned to his mother with a beautiful motorcycle that he won in Italy during his tour. On a joyride with his mother, they were struck by a drunk driver and his mother dies on impact. As he was about to be taken away, Frank is teleported to the ‘Cool World’ by a scientist called Doc Whiskers. Frank stays in the world and becomes a cop, taking care of things.
On the other side of the spectrum, 47-year-old cartoonist Jack Deebs was detained after police found a murdered man was in bed with his wife. To pass time, he created a series of comic books called ‘Cool World’ which became a large hit. Soon, he is summoned to the Cool World itself by a woman a doodle named Holli Would who wishes to become a real woman. Unfortunately, Frank has other plans to stop Jack from doing so.

My Thoughts: This, like ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, has a mixture of live action and cartoons. Unlike Roger Rabbit, this is clearly not a show for children. The story line pretty much brings a man from our world, a convict actually who draws a cartoon comic book called “Cool World.” In his loneliness, he created a rather interesting stripper girl who gets a life of her own kind of. Women are highly sexualized and some of the animations are really scandalized. Think Jessica Rabbit to the extreme although she is pretty much of a badass. I like how they created her as a girl that will take what she wants without any problems.

I actually couldn’t get into the show. It’s pretty much stylized for the time it came out without really anything that would probably relate to this time. It was ok if you like this type of thing and did talk about love breaking boundaries but otherwise, it really didn’t have much of a reason for being besides a trip down sexual cartoons.

The animations are out side the box, going between good and really bad. It’s pretty equal to the acting actually. Lots of characters are off and full of profanity. Everything is flat when it comes to the cartoon world, but it would be so much better if it was more like toon world from Roger Rabbit and just drew it all in. It would have felt so much more consistent if it was. The only character that was drawn rather well was Holli and Frank’s girlfriend Lanet, the stripper girl. I did like the dark look and feel of the surreal cartoon world. Threwout the whole show, they never once actually showed the naked female figure although they hinted at it and showed what they called ‘mating’ (pretty much they have sex).

When they get to a point where Animated characters interact with the real world characters, things get really choppy. When a real world character picks something up, many times, the hand seems to glide on the object and they can’t really touch the animated characters without making it look like they are all in the characters head. I wish they would at least use a green screen for those parts. You can tell the animation was done after they filmed the live action stuff and it looks pretty much like crap in those areas talking in today’s standard. I don’t know enough to say if it was in their time as well.

The voices could be so much better then this. I have seen much better stuff voices for this date and time. Now I am mostly talking about the animated characters.

Plague Dogs(Dec 3, 1982)
Director: Martin Rosen, Tony Guy Producers: Martin Rosen
Drama, Adventure,
Key Words: Animals, survival, animal testing,
Studio: Nepenthe Productions Licensed American Publisher: Embassy Pictures

Time: 103 minutes

Rowf (a Labrador-mix) and Snitter (A Smooth Fox Terrier) are part of a strange experimental research laboratory that uses a number of animals for strange experiments. Rowf has been drowned repeatedly and resuscitated and Snitter had a vivisection (A live surgery done on his brain to see the central nervous system) done. The two end up escaping from the lab into the harsh wilderness of England where they fight to survive. Soon, knowledge escapes that the two might have been carrying the bubonic plague from the actual lab. Will the dogs be able to survive or will the lab find them and destroy them?

My Thoughts: Um… This is a really really odd show. Rather silent and made my skin crawl just a bit, especially how they show a dog being killed by downing in an experimental room. I’m not spoiling anything there since the show starts out with that.

This show is so depressing, so sad that it made me want to curl into a ball and cry. It’s about dogs who want to find masters that will not torture them with tests. It turns darker as they don’t find a master and become wild dogs pretty much and do as they need. A little bit of surreal stuff does seem to come up because one of the dogs seems to have had work done to his brain. I think its also interesting to note that we see a lot of what happens when someone has the plague since both of them show signs as the days go on.

The story actually felt rather boring for the most part, and it felt like it was going way to slow without really any reason for it. The only thing somewhat entertaining was watching the dogs try to catch frogs in desperation to have something to eat.

The art style is rather odd, very dark and detailed. When you do see the people, you can see almost every line in the face. The animals all look pretty real and add to how scary the show really is. They really watched how dogs really act because everything they do isn’t humanoid. The animation is pretty fluid, and works well with the story.

The voices are hard to hear a lot, they talk rather softly and then the music would blar when I had my volume up. Their British voices also are a bit hard to tell what is being said. They sometimes also talk a bit scatter brained and mix up. Now also, even when we do not see the humans, we do hear them talking about the dogs escape.

Now, this show was written because of the problems with testing animals and also working with illnesses and bioweapons that could become a national problem if they get out. This show was a creation from a book by Richard Adams that wrote a lot of different sad books about animals in bad conditions.

Space Jam(Nov 15, 1996)
Director: Joe Pytka Producers: Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck, Daniel Goldberg
Sports, Action, Adventure, Comedy
Key Words: Basketball, Looney Tunes,
Studio: Warner Bros. Family Entertainment

Time: 88 minutes

In the real world, Michael Jordan’s life has slowly changed for the former NBA player, now going into retirement. He picked up baseball, not that he’s any good, and has decided family life to be wonderful. The only odd thing is having a strange publicist who is supposed to make sure no one bothers him.
Same time, the Looney Tunes are invaded by little aliens who want to make them slaves of an amusement park. When the tunes challenge them to a basketball game, the aliens steal the talents of the NBA players in order to win. That’s when Bugs brings Michael into their world and asks him to play on their team. Can the tunes keep their freedom or will they be forced to live out the rest of their lives as slaves?

My Thoughts: Well this was a really fun show to actually watch. I guess part of it was because of the fact that it had Michael Jordan in the show. I used the live in Chicago so the Chicago Bulls were a bit nostalgic for me. This has an interesting show because it had a lot of the same idea’s as Cool World and Who framed Roger Rabbit. The whole idea that toons live in another dimension then the real world.

When you look at the old looney tunes and the newer idea of them, a lot of things stand out. First, the personalities of the characters had actually been altered to make them a bit more rounded. Characters actually care for each other even though they still fight between themselves. One that seemed a bit forced though was the new character, Lola. She didn’t have much story line and served as a love interest for Bugs as well as the only female in a mass of male characters.

I love how they pretty much brought Michael’s family life into it. It made it really relatable because we saw how he was just like everyone else. He has a loving wife, a couple beautiful kids, and a wonderful house with all that he really needed to be happy. He has friends as well (Although many of them are rather famous like Bill Murray.) and does many things that we would normally do. Unfortunately, Michael is many things, but not an actor. He is alright but he doesn’t seem to show much emotion when it came to the tunes and destroy some of the emotions in it.

One thing that bugged me was that in the start of the show, Michael has turned into a ball and thrown around by the Nerdlucks. There is a point at the end of the show that Michael actually asks if he can do toon physics to win the game. If he was turned into a ball and thrown around, wouldn’t he know that he can? Not only that, but he never uses it except for those two times.

The animation is rather good though the characters seem more 3D then they have any business being I think. It just feels a little out of what we are used to. It’s not all bad, but does throw the show off when they go from old cartoons to the newer CG stuff. When cartoon physics kick in with the live action characters, it looks rather off as well, and you can actually tell that it was pretty strange photoshoping rather then CG. It’s ok for the time I guess but it’s still really easy to tell it’s off.

There really were no problems with the voices. They were really good and had the same feeling as the older version of the characters. The Nerdlucks were done well, each having there own personality and some stand out better then others.

The Tale of Despereaux(Dec 19, 2008)
Director: Sam Fell, Rob Stevenhagen Producers: Gary Ross, Allison Thomas
Action, Adventure,
Key Words: Mice, Rats, Children,
Studio: Relativity Media, Framestore Feature Animation, Universal Animation Studios Licensed American Publisher: Universal Pictures

Time: 93 minutes

One day, during a special Royal Soup Day, a rat named Roscuro gets lost from his owner and ends up scaring the Queen of the land, making her faint into her soup and drowns. In the Kings sadness, he forbids the land from having soup and to kill the rats if ever they saw one. This turns the land into a sorrowful place, gray and despairing.
A few years later, a young mouse named Despereaux was born, and yet, he was unlike the other mice. He would not be fearful of anything and even liked to get into dangerous places. He becomes friends with Princess Pea and even speaks with her. To save her, he decides to help her lose her gloom.

My Thoughts: This is a hard show to talk about. It was done rather well although it feels a bit off. The sad thing is, I don’t know why. You can definitely tell it was created for children in how they react too many different things. In fact, the main story line seems a bit forced in my mind about little creatures doing big things is found throughout the whole story.

I’m not really fond of the way they show the rats and the mice, rats being lowlifes and mice looking like they are higher up in the chain. It also seems a bit to ironic that a rat becomes the bad guy. It just feels a bit too used in a lot of different shows. I understand that it’s for kids, but it would be really nice to see something new. The ending, though I will not spoil it, just feels really odd, pretty much putting way too much into the thought that if you just say sorry, it would be alright thing. It just seems really forced again.

Just a little thing I do need to say, the side character, Boldo, feels a lot like Don Quixote. The way he acts and talks is pretty much alike.

The characters are interesting looking with large heads and even bigger eyes. The animals look a bit more human then the actual humans in fact. The world around them is really gray, even before the bad stuff started. I have to say though; the textures are really really well done. They look wonderful and the bump maps don’t seem to be overwhelming even when they do close ups to the mice. Unfortunately, it is a little to much considering the look of the characters.

The voices are pretty good though it’s sometimes hard to understand one or two of them with how heavy the accent is. It is a little bothersome and makes my head hurt. Princess Pea and Despereaux are the only ones that actually sound pretty good on the accent.

The human’s try to send them to Kenya but as they went, the ship was taken over by penguins and runs a ground in Madagascar where they meet many lemurs lead by King Julien XIII.

Key Words: 3D Animation, Anthro, Animals, Slapstick
Studio: DreamWorks Animation, Pacific Data Images Licensed American Publisher: DreamWorks

Time: 89 minutes

Alex has been having flashbacks about when he was young. As he is, they repair the airplane to fly back to New York only to end up crashing the plane in Africa. They become fascinated when they find more of there kind and decide to separate for the time being. Alex learns that he was stolen from his family by poachers and finds his father, Zuba. But things seem to be turning out oddly; will Alex actually be able to get back in touch with his roots?

My Thoughts:Wow… this is actually pretty good. There are only a couple things that aren’t really good. First off, why is it called Madagascar? The first show has barely anything happening on Madagascar and now they are in Africa… what next, Europe? (*Head smacks desk hard*) FINE! How about you just call it Gallivanting New York Animal’s or something? Just don’t give us false hope that they are still on the island. There is also the little matter that they could of just ended it with the first and I would have been really satisfied with the ending. And now? Well, I think they could of ended it here and had everyone happy in Africa, wonder how they will work that into the next one.

So, Alex has a mark on his hand that shows he’s the son of the chief of in a lion group… When did he get this mark because he sure didn’t have it in New York. It seems they just added it for the sake of making this movie. You know, I think the story would have been better if they didn’t try to force the story to keep going. They probably could have done tons of things in Madagascar instead of coming onto the main land. Alex seemed happy there, so did the rest. They had shelter, food, and got along pretty well with the natives. Why did they still want to go back? I have no clue.

I’m a little surprised that King Julian, instead of being a annoying prick, actually was able to have a bigger role in the show and give special characters a small push to keep the character arc going. Actually, a lot have a bit more info on each of the characters.

The textures and everything are pretty much the same as the first, though one or two textures have changed like the small hand print thing on Alex’s hand.

Again, voices are pretty much the same as the first so not sure what to say here.

Surprisingly though, this was better then the first movie and so I have good hopes for the next.

Powerpuff Girls: The Movie(July 3, 2002)
Director: Craig McCarcken Producers: Donna Castricone
Sci-fi, Hero,
Key Words: Magical Girls, Superpowers,
Studio: Cartoon Network Studios, Rough Draft Studios, W!LDBRAIN Licensed American Publisher: Warner Bros. Pictures

Time: 72 minutes

In the city of Townsville, crime runs on a spree and the citizens cower in terror. That is, until Professor Utonium created three little girls and accidently mixed Chemical X into the batch. As they learn to live with normal people, they find that they have a lot of powers others don’t. It seems not everyone is alright with these powers as the girls try to find a place in this messed up world they live in.

My Thoughts: This is actually an interesting first movie showing how the Powerpuff girls and Mojo Jojo was born. It’s actually rather touching to see how much the 4 actually get along on the first day. It shows they are pretty normal except for the powers. They just want to have fun and be loved. They have trouble finding acceptance in a world that doesn’t really want them.

I have no idea how the mayor has even been elected because he is really stupid. Nothing he does really makes any sense. When the town is being destroyed, he goes and gets a pickle instead of wanting to figure out how to stop it. And even after worlds, all he is worried about is how they ‘killed’ the pickles.

Mojo Jojo is really odd. First off, 2 days after he is given his ‘special powers,’ he said that he was discriminated for too long. 2 days is not a long time.

The art style is perfect to the actual TV show. I really don’t see much difference between the two. Everyone has a very black large outline that makes them stand out from the background which is normally diluted tones of gray or pink. Some characters are overly round where others are exaggerated angles. In fact, the Professor is all angles, and even his shoulders don’t move when he is stretching out his neck. The girls are rather chibi looking even though this is an American made cartoon. The whole show is rather stylized in itself.

The voices are alright, it is an American Cartoon so you don’t have the choice of hearing two different voices for the characters. Sometimes they do have problems in the script though. I can’t stand how Mojo Jojo talks, mostly in third person and has a rather rapid fire monolog with a lot of pauses. Actually, it’s like the old Godzilla shows where they were dubbed over in English. He also seems to use really really bad puns too.

Spirited Away(July 27, 2001)
Director: Hayao Miyazaki Producers: Toshio Suzuki
Fantasy, Adventure,
Key Words: Spirits,
Studio: Studio Ghibli Licensed American Publisher: Walt Disney Pictures

Time: 123 minutes

Chihiro Ogino is a very troubled 10-year-old girl. As her parents move her to another town, they take a wrong turn and find what they thought to be an abandoned amusement park. As her family starts eating some food there, Chihiro goes exploring and when she comes back, she finds that they have been turned into pigs. She finds this is a land for spirits and soon is forced to work in the bath house to protect her self. But can she really save herself and her family from the land of spirits?

My Thoughts: This show is very beautiful in both its art style and its story. I love Miyazaki’s work and this was one of the very first I watched. The storyline feels as though it is a tale of growing up, facing your fears and learning how to take care of yourself. We start out with a girl sheltered by her parents slightly who doesn’t want to move. She’s grumpy, thinking that no one cares about her own feelings about the move and has some fears about going to a new place. Because of her father’s stupidity (in a sense), they end up at an old abandoned gate in the middle of nowhere and go on in. Turns out this place is a gateway to the spiritual world and the family is swept away into a rather enchanting world where only Chihiro will remember. She is separated from her parents, forced to work in a bathhouse and learn what her own strength is.

In one of the reviewer’s videos that I watch sometimes, JesuOtaku brought up the idea of the value of ones name. It is shown in many anime like xxxHOLiC and most importantly here. Chihiro’s name is pretty much taken from her and she tries hard to remember it as the story goes on. There is a belief that your name is what makes you and weather you believe it or not, it’s a belief I have. My real name is different then my name online and if anyone knew me in the real world, I am a little different then I am online. It is the thought that people do not know who exactly you are and as Chihiro seems to find out, she is a different person as
Sen. She is a bathhouse attendant as Sen instead of the child Chihiro. When she becomes Chihiro again, she never really stops being Sen, showing the strength that she gained from her other side. It’s a little heard to understand but I believe that we all have different personalities, though it depends on who we are around. When we are with friends, we are much different then when we are with family. When we are with older people like grandparent age, we are different then when we are with children. If you look at it this way, Sen was someone already within Chihiro. It just needed different people to show that it was there.

The artwork is astounding and you can really feel the love and attention that was given to this show. Even the detail of Chihiro putting her shoe on is done down to the small taps to make sure it’s on well enough. When people say how beautiful this movie is, they don’t exaggerate. I actually couldn’t find any problems with it in consistencies or loops. It is what it is and its nothing more or less then what you would expect in a well made film. The character designs feel like they are out of a Japanese picture of demons but scaled back slightly for the children as none of the monsters have blood dripping from their fangs or wanting to kill anyone.

The voices are wonderful except for Chihiro, she just sounds a bit too whiny even when she grows up a little. She yells a lot and it pretty much throws me off when she is supposed to be gentler and thought full. I actually love how Haku sounds pretty young and gentle instead of harsh. Again, all the voices are the dubbed version since I have not seen the sub but they were still exceptional.

Ben 10: Destroy all Aliens(March 11, 2012), Ben 10: Alien Dimensions
Director: Victor Cook Producers: Silas Hickey
Key Words: Magical Girl, Aliens,
Licensed American Publisher: Cartoon Network

Time: 70 minutes

As Ben’s summer is coming to a end, he has one last chance to be a hero and fight against a strange tank but a fight between Gwen and him leads to Gewn dismantling a tank that Ben’s alien body, Upgrade, was attached to. It leads to his Omnitrix starting to malfunction.
After the summer with Grandpa Max, Ben is having trouble coping with normal school life. After being grounded by his parents, he is forced to sit in his room and do his homework but the Omnitrix is doing something else. When he leaves with Tetrax Shards against his grounding, he ends up having a fight of a lifetime.

My Thoughts: Ok... wow… where did all the money go exactly in this show? They decided to create the show in 3D and really, it takes away from it a lot. The story line is pretty off, and all together, this just doesn’t see m like there was much thought put into it. It was just made to make money.

The storyline pretty much brings Ben into a lot of different countries and try to make sense of the landmarks that some think aliens had a hand in, though all of them are really outrageous. I’m sorry, but I really don’t understand why this was even created except for a money

There was a good lesson in the end but that’s all I can really say for it. Its really not worth sitting threw it for the ending.

The characters all seem like they are from the sims, moving oddly to the point they don’t look human. Every movement feels clunky and robotic. They try to do the same faces that they do in the 2D version but it doesn’t look at all well. They even have a strange transformation thing like a magical girl and it looks so bad. The show was never made to be 3D.

The voices have the same actors as in the actual show and I can tell they did try hard to make it entertaining although the script feels off. The fights between Ben and Gwen feel very forced. They do fight in the TV show but nothing like what they did in this one.
