    (Trailer) Yesterday. Anyone see this?

    This looks to be an interesting idea, with a solid pedigree (Director Danny Boyle, writer Richard Curtis). Does it count as plagiarism if the original artists never existed?

    Prompted by the trailer for HTTYD 3: Magic-free Fantasy

    The new trailer for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World dropped recently, and it got me to thinking. HTTYD has become one of my favorite animated franchises in recent years, with its distinct combination of well-rounded lead characters, detailed world-building and stories that combine...

    Every song from Disney's Animated Canon (almost) ranked from worst to best

    I found this article on consequenceofsound.net and thought it would be good meat for discussion on the forums. Ranking: Every Disney Song From Worst To Best Caveats up front: - It's rather time-consuming, as not all but most of the songs come with working embedded YouTube files. - It only...

    Holy 70s Nostalgia! Electra Woman and Dyna Girl are back!

    So this, evidently, is a thing that is happening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtkPbA3J510 I have some strange childhood memories of Sid and Marty Krofft (seriously, who needs drugs when you have H. R. Pufnstuf?) but this looks like an interesting take on the theme: amatuer superheroes...

    Peter Jackson and Doctor Who? It may be happening.

    According to rumor, Peter Jackson has expressed interest in directing an episode of Doctor Who, and the BBC has expressed interest in letting him. Thus far, it hasn't gotten past the 'expressed interest' stage. That may have changed. This video has appeared on YouTube...

And then you try a sample and it's one of the best things you ever...

    Michael Moorcock--Where to Start?

    So I had a 50% off coupon for Borders, and I ended up buying a new Doctor Who novel, "The Coming of the Terraphiles", written by Michael Moorcock. My previous exposure to Moorcock was mainly from the DC/Vertigo Michael Moorcock's Multiverse TPB(which I bought mainly for the Walt Simonson art)...

    (Music) Since When is This a Christmas Song?

    Okay, let me set the scene here. Every year I put together a CD of favorite Christmas songs as gifts for family and friends, and this year I got a pretty respectable haul; Ok Go's cover of the Kinks' "Father Christmas", "Come Thou Font of Every Blessing" by Sufjan Stevens, "Star of Wonder" by...

    ISTTKO...Christmas Music

    I've been trying to find a version of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer that I heard the other day. It was released several years ago, has a sort of swing-rock tempo, and at one point the line "You'll go down in history" is replaced by "Play your saxophone for me". Can anyone tell me who recorded...

    And Another Thing? Really?

    So there I was at my local Barnes and Noble, checking out what new books I may wish to purchase with my next paycheck(leaning heavily toward Unseen Academicals, the new Discworld book), when I noticed a display of new trade paperback editions of the Hitchhikers Guide novels. Well and good, I...

    I want to talk about live theater

    I haven't seen this as a subject in a thread before, so forgive me if a thread like this exists. Once in a great while I like to watch a live play. In recent years I've seen and enjoyed performances of Phantom of the Opera, The Reduced Shakespeare Company and The Capital Steps. Last week I...

    Have yourself a YouTube little Christmas.

    Merry Christmas one and all. Just for kicks, I thought I'd link some vintage Christmas cartoons that don't get a lot of TV play, if any at all, from those nice people at YouTube. So, for your perusal; One Ham's Family. Tex Avery for MGM. Funny take on the Three Little Pigs with the wolf...

    [Appaloosa]So, whaddya think? (J. Harper, you out there?)

    I'm thinking of seeing this new Ed Harris/Viggo Mortenson western Appaloosa. Has anyone seen it yet? If you're out there, J. Harper, I'm especially interested in your opinion, seeing as how it's based on a novel by one of your favorite writers, Robert Parker(writer of the Spencer novels).

    Time article: New Miyazaki movie

    I did a Google search of the forum and didn't find anything so I guess I'm first to report. I found an article on Time.com about a new anime by the Man, the Myth, the Legend, Hayao Miyazaki. Ponyo On the Cliff By the Sea will be released by Disney next year in the States.

    [Late to the Party] Hairspray

    This weekend I finally watched the movie musical "Hairspray". I guess that makes me late to the party. And a rockin' party it was! I had a sustained smile on my face from beginning to end, with some solid laughs throughout! Unlike most modern 'feel-good' movies, I actually ended up feeling...
