Iron Man: The Complete 1994 Animated Television Series Now that the X-Men animated series is fully released on DVD, Buena Vista has released the complete animated series of Iron Man, also from the mid-90s.  This was a short-lived but good while it lasted animated series. Of all the cartoons from this time period, this is perhaps the most forgettable.  Chalk it up to the fact that Iron Man is not the most prevalent comic book hero when standing against Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, et al. With the release of "Iron Man 2" in theaters, it is obvious that Buena Vista timed this release to coincide. As for the series itself, it is a half-in-half cartoon.  The first half is simply terrible.  The story and animation is horrendous at times.  But then there is the second half of the series that is incredible.  Unlike the other cartoon series, Iron Man consists of many ...

X-Men: The Animated Series - Volume 5 It is finally here.  The final volume of the greatest animated X-Men cartoon.  Volume 5 contains the fifth and final season of the mid-90s cartoon.  For a while I was worried that the final volume would never come.  Season four was supposed to be the final season.  It was concluded with a 4-part episode that wrapped things up better than most cartoons. However, Fox decided to add a fifth season.  This season brings several changes.  These changes include different voices for several characters and a new animation studio.  These changes make it difficult at a glance to realize this season belongs with the first four seasons. The animation has changed quite a bit, separating it from the first part of the series, and from all the other animated cartoons of the era.  It also takes a little while to get used to ...

X-Men: The Animated Series - Volumes 3 and 4 Buena Vista is back with "X-Men" animated episodes in Volumes 3 and 4.  I can't tell you all how thankful I am that you supported the initially released two volumes.  That helped to ensure the release of these next two volumes.  So, please continue to support these volumes so we can get the final remaining DVD release to complete the series. "X-Men" is noted as being one of the first animated cartoons to have a continuing storyline from episode to episode.  However, these began to drop a about season three.  Therefore these two volumes of "X-Men" contain more one-off episodes.  Nevertheless, these episodes are terrific.  It is hard to find fault in the entire series, as it is so entertaining.  The characters are emotionally deep for a cartoon.  The only real issue is that the episodes become more loosely based on ...

X-Men: The Animated Series - Volumes 1 and 2 Finally!  That is all I can say.  For me, this is one of the most anticipated cartoon releases to home video.  While I wish it were on the Blu-ray format, I will settle for standard DVDs.  In fact, I was in the process of collecting all these episodes off of broadcast and was getting annoyed by the scrolling messages at the bottom of the screen.  I was only three episodes away from collecting all 76 episodes when I got the news about this release. Matched for same time release as the Blu-ray release of the X-Men trilogy and the theatrical release of the Wolverine movie, the X-Men cartoon is a real treat.  As will most all cartoon sets, Buena Vista Home Entertainment has released them in volumes.  As of now they have released volumes one and two.  Each volume contains two ...

Little Mermaid II, The: Return to the Sea (Special Edition) Once again, Disney feels the need to re-release a "Little Mermaid" film.  In 2000, Disney released "The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea" as a direct-to-video sequel to 1989's "The Little Mermaid."  Disney is now re-releasing the sequel as a Special Edition.  Unfortunately, the movie doesn't fair so well. First and foremost, the songs are not good at all.  They don't live up to the standard set by the original film.  The melodies are not catchy and lack pizzazz.  This was virtually Danny Troob's only attempt as a music composer.  It is in fact his last.  However, Troob has a longstanding relationship with Disney in their music department.  He has worked as an arranger and orchestrator for such legendary films as, "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin," "The Lion King," among many others.  Sadly, his work as a composer is sorely ...
