Star Wars – The Clone Wars – Coming To An End On Cartoon Network

SWTheCloneWars1

Now this is something I really wasn’t expecting, one of the animated shows that I follow religiously and I thought was going strong. This might be the last season of Star Wars on Cartoon Network, and there is still so much to see, whats great about Star Wars is that it’s in a Universe with so many stories to tell, but it doesn’t seem like it is stopping, but they might be changing directions. Still I’m a bit shocked that a show that is doing so well might stop for now, I hope that what ever they do they will continue this amazing animated show in some form. Got to love Star Wars!

While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we’re continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content.

Black Dynamite

Like the movie, the show is predominantly a parody of and tribute to blaxploitation cinema. The show continues the story of Black Dynamite and his crew of Bullhorn, Cream Corn, and Honey Bee as they engage in dangerous and over-the-top misadventures sometimes involving African-American stars ex: Michael Jackson (back when he was part of the Jackson 5), O. J. Simpson, Richard Pryor, Mr. T and other famous people like Elvis Presley, as well as Black Dynamite’s recurring arch-nemesis President Richard Nixon (the main villain from the film). This show also makes references to the original Black Dynamite movie, such as Fiendish Dr. Wu as the leader of a group of ninjas; however, the show seems to follow its own continuity; as some characters from the film who were killed off are alive in the series.

This is one over the top ridiculous animated tv shows I have seen in a while, insults of every kind flying everywhere. They took the movie and took it to another level, with the style of 70s and some great humor they really made this show hilarious especially with Black Dynamite. This isn’t meant for kids, this is directed to adults and you can tell when you watch it. The idea of an orphanage and whorehouse being the same business is just ridiculous, its what Black Dynamite calls his Whorphanage, and it just gets more ridiculous from there, it is offensive on a lot of levels and I love that about the show. Its just over the top animated fun of the R-rated kind, its just 10 episodes but I hope they bring it back again.

DC Nation: Bat Man Of Shanghai

Produced by Chinese animation studio Wolf Smoke (also responsible for the awesome and NSFW Kung Fu Cooking Girls), this three part adventure transports Catwoman, Bane and the Caped Crusader himself back to Shanghai in 1930 for an all-out battle of thievery and mystical kung fu, and if you haven’t seen it, you’re in luck.

DC Nation Shorts are pretty cool and they came up with this, I think it would look pretty good as a full animation not just a short. I love how they brought Batman to the 1930s, and to watch these youtube shorts start from top to bottom to develop the story the right way.

Star Trek Alternate Intro

This animation is an homage to one of the most groundbreaking sci-fi television shows ever to beam down to Earth. Our goal was to try and capture the essence of what we found most enjoyable from the series for building this faux opening to this classic show.

An animated reinterpretation of the orignal Star Trek intro, I just love hearing that intro and in style of animation is very cool and retro.

G.I. Joe Renegades

Soldiers … heroes … outlaws. On the run after being accused of crimes they didn’t commit, six young G.I.s battle to clear their names — and expose the real bad guys, COBRA Industries. The world thinks this giant corporation is the good guys, but it’s really run by evil people who want to rule the planet. It’s up to these renegade Joes to stop COBRA and save the world — and themselves.

I stumbled onto this show by mistake on iTunes, I wasn’t expecting to see a new animated tv show for G.I. Joe and the moment I saw I purchased the whole season, I didn’t even think about downloading it on torrents, I just downloaded right away on my iPad iTunes. For any G.I. Joe fan this show is a new twist on the story, you have young G.I.s who are blackmailed by Cobra and fight to show Cobra’s true colors and clear their names. It has been mordernized for the today’s audience and even old fans will really enjoy it, I’m loving and especially Snake Eyes. The animation of the show is pretty good too, its done in 2D but uses 3D to give the background depth, so the characters feel drawn but certain elements are done in CGI to give it that depth of movement like helicopters or their vehicle, I like this style of animation and its making it even more enjoyable to watch. Its at 15 episodes at this point I’m enjoying every one of them, I can’t wait for the story to develop more. Hasbro is doing a good job of investing in their different productions, I just hope the quality remains as good as it is.

Review: Batman – Under the Red Hood

Batman faces his ultimate challenge as the mysterious Red Hood takes Gotham City by firestorm. One part vigilante, one part criminal kingpin, Red Hood begins cleaning up Gotham with the efficiency of Batman, but without following the same ethical code. Killing is an option. And when the Joker falls in the balance between the two, hard truths are revealed and old wounds are reopened.

It always amazes me how much depth there is to the story of Batman and those around him. Under the Red Hood is a movie I have been looking forward to for some time, a high quality movie from DC Comics. Batman now faces a different kind of foe, someone who seems to be able to keep a step ahead of him but the story slowly unravels. The story is great and the animation is fantastic, I love when they make these high quality movies. I want more of these movies, and especially the Green Lantern. For any fan of the comics this is a must see movie.

Review: Despicable Me

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon.

The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

I’m a big fan of Steve Carrel so I was looking forward to the movie, but wasn’t expecting it to be this good. Gru is trying to be the most evil genius the world, and he just can’t seem to get there. Now Gru is funny, but his minions are hilarious, I mean they are just a bunch of funny creatures who live their lives as minions and funny lives. Throw the kids into the mix and it just gets even funnier, they hit Gru where he doesn’t expect, and its a hell of an adventure. After watching this movie, everyone is going to want a minion, I want a few.
