Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles Originally broadcast in 1985, “Robotech” was the unique and popular brainchild of Carl Macek and the company Harmony Gold.  Macek took three recent, unrelated futuristic Japanese animated television serials (“Super Dimension Fortress Macross,” “Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross,” and “Genesis Climber Mospeada”) and by cleverly rewriting the English dubbing, turned them all into a single multi-generational story, all united by the usage of the robotic technology that allows fighters to reconfigure into humanoid-appearing battle robots and creates motorcycles that convert into armored battle suits, etc.  Macek and company took references in “Macross” to “protoculture” (in the original series it referred to the first society of primitive humanoid life, from which all the rest sprung) and redefined it as a futuristic energy source that is sought by various alien cultures, with references weaved into the rest of the series.  While this ...

Madagascar DreamWorks has done it again.  Their release of "Madagascar" marks another terrific film and Blu-ray transfer from the studio.  Their previous release of "Shrek the Third" is one of the best, if not the best, animated films on Blu-ray to date. "Madagascar" brings a new type of quality to Blu-ray.  While not as advanced in animation as "Shrek the Third," "Madagascar" is very attractive.  Kids and adults alike can enjoy this film. Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller) is New York City Central Park Zoo's star attraction.  Only in an animated do you find a lion's best friends to be a hippo, giraffe, and zebra.  Marty (Chris Rock) is the zebra, a 10-year old that longs to get back to his roots and run in the wild.  Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) is the mother-like figure among the four, while Melman (David ...

Shrek the Third In what seems like a time of sequels, and even more so, trilogies, all your favorite fairytale creatures are back in “Shrek the Third”. After a so-so performance in “Shrek 2”, creator Mike Myers is back in the swing of things with the third installment. While not as ingenious as the first Shrek film, “Shrek the Third” delivers a much more coherent and laugh-filled film than number 2. In film number one our fearless Shrek (Mike Myers) went off to rescue the princess in the highest room of the tallest tower and battle the fire-breathing dragon, all to get the deed to his swamp back from the sinister Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). In the second film, the Fairy Godmother and her son Prince Charming plotted to take the princess away from Shrek and take over the kingdom of Far Far Away. ...

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Tim Burton is probably the most powerful and creative genius in the world of dark and twisted feature films.  What might not be known to some of the readers out there is that Burton began with Disney as an unaccredited animator.  It was at time that Burton created a nightmare-ish holiday poem.  He pitched it to the traditional Disney animators, but was rejected on the grounds that the story was too scary for children.  Putting the rejection aside, Burton went on to success with "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure."  He followed up that success with "Beetlejuice," "Batman," "Edward Scissorhands" and many many others. With Burton the most in demand writer, producer and director, in 1993 Disney obliged Burton by releasing "The Nightmare Before Christmas."  It was released to critical acclaim, although not so much by the children (Disney was right all along there). "The ...

Appleseed: Ex Machina “Appleseed: Ex Machina” is a sequel to 2004’s “Appleseed” feature film, both based on the manga by the pseudonymous Masamune Shirow.  It is the year 2113.  A devastating non-nuclear global war has decimated half of the world’s population.  Cutting-edge cybernetic technology has managed to save a significant number of the injured.  The population consists of three types of people: humans, cyborgs, and artificially created humans called bioroids, who have been engineered to be less prone to anger and violence.  This rebuilt society is still plagued by violence, but strives toward Utopian ideals, with the capital city of Olympus standing as a beacon of hope.  The elite police force, E.S.W.A.T., maintains order.  Two of the shining officers in E.S.W.A.T. are athletic female, Deunan Knute and Briareos, Deunan’s lover whose body was so decimated by an explosion in the war, that his ...
