Little Mermaid Live, The (2019)
The detail I most remember from "The Little Mermaid," was how her hair moved. If you can't establish an artistic craft to convey that, the art is lost. She flew when she needed to swim.
My treasure list:
I haven't seen so much visible invisible wire since "I Love Lucy." Decorating them might have helped
The octaves were lower than the crowd cheer. Amplification was a problem
A hologram of the improbable fish might have sufficed instead of plastic muppets
Graham Philips proved a singing alpha as Auli'i Cravalho expressed hard work
John Stamos' cook was destined to fail even if he had done it in a thong
Shaggy was feeling the beat but something spooked him and he started whispering
You shouldn't stumble. Even a shark shows grace underwater
Having the cartoon enact emotions whilst the live mostly sang is lazy
The deed was cast. The commercial for a beloved classic was born because they knew that after this, we'd flee to the original material. Magic! 08-Nov-2019
Kiss Me First (2018-)
Mental disparity, a God complex and game/life correlation. The cast broods accordingly, the art prettifies the depression but the conclusion sticks with serial tropes. It forgets to embrace fun which is why we play games to begin with. 28-Jul-2019
Love, Death & Robots (2019)
It doesn't allow you much prep time. It dives right into the action (with mixed results) but the eye is warped to the land of innovative technical wizardry and it magnetizes. 26-Mar-2019
Sometimes we need to take a trip to the land of fantastic in order for reality to sink in. The balls are unbreakable. 19-Dec-2018
A Christmas gift that explodes. 16-Dec-2018
It's high on a drug that doesn't exist. Nothing/everything makes sense. I stick with it because I want to see the child saved and because messy daddy keeps it angry and moving riotously. 27-Nov-2018
Frosty The Snowman (1969)
He was the adult our parents didn't want to be. 11-Dec-2018
The zippiest of the Christmas jingles and it fits the most story in its 25 minutes. 12-Dec-2017
Star Wars Rebels (2014 -2018)
It respected the original material, voiced it beautifully and the mythology added a punch to the Star Wars Universe. The geek points sum up "the force" where the films could only preach it. 08-Mar-2018
It delivers on the promise of throwback and mythology aside. You'll still believe. 18-Nov-2015
I can respect the progress by shifting the roles of the sexes but I can't follow the story because I'm too aware its a cartoon. Its strictly for the kiddies.
I duh’d myself. 21-Feb-2018
Mariah Carey: All I Want For Christmas Is You (2017)
I never pictured Mariah singing about a dog and the virtue in which its presented wafts of ridiculousness but the art is pretty damn cute. 26-Dec-2017
Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer (1964)
This one was specifically made for us unwanted misfit toys. 10-Dec-2017
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
The message millions of Americans will deliver but none will process.
I'm not a magic splatterer but when art transcends it, you'll believe whatever you have to believe to see peace. 01-Dec-2017
SNL: David S. Pumpkins Animated Halloween Special (2017)
If you can make us lose patience with a Tom Hanks character, you are doing it wrong.
You can't diffuse the voices of actors we like to hear, it mutes the point.
It's bad even by a 70's standard. 31-Oct-2017
Michael Jackson's Halloween (2017)
The only reason for this exploitation is to celebrate the man's legacy of talent and help us forget the tortured soul who lived by controversy. It fails.
As much as we would like to, his reputation pronounced him short of a hero. 31-Oct-2017
It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Snoopy's "Red Baron" has always seemed like an interruption to me and my feelings will never change. It's an adult's personal reference in a show devoid of any.
What still kicks in is a child's inscrutable magical belief system, when life is not offering any, that keeps him plugged in. Well served. 23-Oct-2017
Marvel: Spider-Man (2017-)
I believe I have seen almost every iteration of Spiderman animate now. This reboot has calmed the bombast, bringing it heart, cool throwback art and youthful strife. I dig. 20-Oct-2017
DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year (2016)
This is where DC usually supersedes Marvel, in the animate dept. It seems even this division needs to add refresh to their reboot. The only part that remains from the running title is the girl part. No super, no familiarity to the iconic counterpart and the heart of which anyone can stomp on. 21-Feb-2017
