Hold on to your Edison balls, because Rock & Rule is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: An oddball mixture of rock music and half a dozen different animation styles, Rock & Rule is hampered by technically difficulties that have little to do with the amount of talent that was poured into its production. At the time of this writing, you can catch a free, legitimate stream of the film from the official Nelvana Retro Rerun Youtube channel, but the quality is not ideal.

Review in a Nutshell: A genuine oddity, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a seamless mixture of live-action and animation in service to a Neo-Noir plot featuring conspiracy, blackmail, adultery, and gruesome, gruesome murder…all in a film ostensibly aimed at children. Seriously, folks, who was this movie for?
The latest GME! Anime Fun Time is a double-feature in which Tom, Violence Jill, and I explore the 2012 TV series Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine (directed by Sayo Yamamoto) and the 2014 short theatrical film Lupin the Third: Jigen’s Gravestone (directed by Takeshi Koike).
Topics of discussion include feminism, the influence of Gothic Romantic literature, how Lupin means different things to different people, and Tom and Jill’s inherent revulsion to moe anime involving school idols and alpaca. CLICK HERE or on the Bluray covers above to download the show.
Review in a Nutshell: Appleseed: Alpha has excellent visual design and some good character moments, but a weak antagonist, a derivative plot, and far too little action. Still, it has cyborgs driving things, so A+ / 5 Stars / Would Buy from Again.

Review in a Nutshell: Starchaser is an oddity. A 3D film with rotoscoped animation, Starchaser is also a blatant Star Wars knockoff filled with weird religious symbolism and uncomfortable subtext. Watch it at your peril.
One moment we’re saving the kingdom, the next moment we’re the sports ball coach. It’s time for some more bonus content, as we dive deep into the show-in-transition that is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 3.

Review in a Nutshell: Discussion includes an uber-nerdy argument about free will vs predetermination, the nature of heroes, speculation about where the show is going, reflections on where the show has been, opinions about the visibility of the fanbase, and numerous other topics.
We’re being sent back to Magic Kindergarten to take a look at My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 2.
Guest hosts include Clarissa and Gerald from AnimeWorldOrder and celebrity translator Neil Nadelman. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the show.
Review in a Nutshell: We didn’t go as deep or as esoteric this time around, but we did manage to mention the concept of the Doppelganger, Derpy-gate, the highs and lows of the fandom, and why we think the show has managed to remain fresh despite the loss of certain key talents.
Hold onto your broadswords, because Fire and Ice is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: With an uninspiring storyline and an odd visual aesthetic, Fire and Ice skates by on the strengths of Frank Frazetta’s design. Be warned: negative stereotypes and gratuitous booty abound.
CLICK HERE or on the image above to download a bonus episode in which Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and I gush all over Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Review in a Nutshell:Avengers is one of only a handful of Marvel animated properties that does justice to the source material. It’s a great animated series that can be enjoyed by children of all ages, with sharp writing and strong characterization.
Everybody loves kung fu fighting, and Kung Fu Panda is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Combining humor, heart, and heroism, Kung Fu Panda is a great kung fu movie with a positive message. Don’t let the advertising fool you; there’s plenty of action, character development, and hilarity to be found here.
