This month, the box set of Hey Arnold! : The Complete Series came out thanks to Shout! Factory and it is literally the best thing you could buy. Of course, it’s great if you grew up with the show and you want a nostalgic look back at your childhood. But it’s also a great buy if you love poignant storytelling and fun animation.
I’m extending my reach in an effort to make COLOR more accessible to those on the interwebs!
For better or worse, I am a huge fan of Disney’s original 1950s animated classic, Cinderella. It’s a masterpiece of simple, effective animation, natural humor, and a lack of time-specific fashion (this story is set sometime in the 1800s, I assume, yet Cinderella and other characters have silhouettes and hairstyles specific to the ’50s).
Say it ain’t so! The Queen Latifah Show has been cancelled by CBS! Apparently, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the show wasn’t the ratings tycoon CBS expected it would be. But even still, I thought it was doing well. I mean, they had former President Bill Clinton on, for goodness’ sakes! Whenever I watched, the show seemed lively, the audience receptive, and Queen Latifah her ever-likable self.
Well, well, well…THAT’S the way to end a winter finale!
Don Lemon strikes again.
In the post about Moana, I write that hearing the film will be computer animated is a bit of a bummer since I can already see the 2D animated film in my head. I just like 2D animation better. The only way I can watch 3D animation is if its used in a non-boring fashion or has a unique look to it, like The Book of Life (wooden puppets), Toy Story (using the technology to enhance toys’ already fragile and fabric-plastic existence), or the upcoming film, Peanuts.
Earlier in the Fall 2014 television season, I wrote about Jane the Virgin, but since I started my new site, I thought it pertinent to republish my initial thoughts on this fun CW show based on the popular telenovela Juana la Virgen.
Disney is adding to their POC film collection with their upcoming film Moana. The film revels in Polynesian lore and culture and features female protagonist who goes off in search of a mysterious land.
