Today we are enjoying a Rankin|Bass production, The Last Unicorn. This is a movie that I have seen on a few occasions, but apparently I’ve never really paid attention to it. The classic cell animation style is a joy to behold, much of the music is provided by America, and the voice talent is perfect. At times there are a few cringe worthy moments, yet on the whole it’s a wonderful film. You can view it for yourself on Netflix.
This is a wonderful documentary on the full history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s a great, and informative, watch. You can’t beat the rental price of $2.99 either. I was onboard the TMNT train back in 84, when I discovered the 2nd printing of issue number one at my favorite comic book shop, Comics & Comix, in Citrus Heights, California.

Oliver Harper, being his usual thorough self, goes in deep on 1994’s “The Shadow”. This film is a favorite of mine along with “The Phantom”. Yes, apparently I enjoy critically crapped on pulp hero films. I won’t apologize for that. I recently went on a rant on geeks who feel entitled to shit on anything and everything when it doesn’t conform to their own vision as to what a property should be. This is just a fun film and is a great popcorn flick that should simply be enjoyed and not picked apart. The visuals are stunning, the story is simple yet interesting, and the acting is very retro-dramatic.
If you have not watched this one, give it a shot. Don’t expect a life changing experience. Just sit back and expect to have some fun.
Until next time…
Live long, Prosper, and may the Force be with you.
We all remember this… Just going to plop this down for everybody to think about, but I think we have already seen the “new” planet where Thor and Hulk are going.
The Kree Monolith was a gateway to a planet. Which planet? Hmmm… Perhaps Kree? More than likely. We’ve had a few Kree connections in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”. Ragnarok is, traditionally, a tale of the end of the world, in which (Thousand plus year old Spoiler) Thor dies.
I am pretty positive that this won’t be a “Planet Hulk”, but it should be a buddy flick, full of fun, laughs and incredible battles. Oh, also, I don’t think that they will actually kill off the Son of Odin but there will probably be a huge change in his world.
