DTV Heaven: Roman (video review)

I said it would be done by today.  So here it is.  This is the kind of movie that appeals to pretty specific audiences, but I liked it, so you might too!

On a side note, I’m giving up on Pinnacle Studio, because its a flawed piece of crap that constantly crashes and fights me for control harder than an OS X Mac.  A few notes after the jump. Continue reading

DTV Heaven: Cinderella 3: A Twist in Time

“Do you remember the story of the girl who lived a life of cinders, and who found true love because she kept a beautiful dream alive in her heart?” Yeah, I do, I just reviewed the sequel last time. Oh, wait, that’s right, there’s another unnecessary sequel to that movie.

Cinderella III: A Twist in Time is one of the very last Disney Sequels to be produced, before the company decided to can the concept completely, making exceptions for the Tinkerbell movies, of course. So, perhaps it is a fantastic irony that one of the very last of these legendarily poor films happened to be not only good, but, in my honest opinion, better than the movie it was based on. Yeah, you read that right. Continue reading

Upcoming post

I apologize to anyone who actually has been coming to read the site, but it is taking some time for me to rework my upcoming reviews.  However, plans for a video supplement to some of my previous reviews are in the works, so with some effort, I should at least have the new text review up in a day or two, and the video next week.

What will the video be for?  Stay tuned to find out.

DTV Heaven: Scooby Doo and the Witch’s Ghost (text review)

Perhaps this is a strange trait to have, but I actually still enjoy Scooby Doo. Yeah, its simple and cheesy for the most part, but it was a fun kind of mystery series that was a solid show for children. I’m apparently not the only one who likes the franchise, as Hanna Barbera has repeatedly released and rebooted the franchise, with the newest production of Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated. However, in the early 2000’s, the first of what would be a series of direct-to-DVD movies was released. They eventually became tired and boring, but the first few movies actually managed to be an attempt to bring the franchise into the modern age. It may not have succeeded fantastically, but they warrant a watch even now for the things they do get right. Continue reading

DTV Heaven: AcceleRacers, Part One: World Race

It’s no secret that cartoons are often made for children, or, in the case of anything by Seth MacFarlane, man-children. But such cartoons have still managed to become pop culture icons and the source of many fond memories. Pokemon, TMNT, Transformers, HeMan, and dozens of other series from the childhoods of children throughout the modern television age have lasted in the memories of people like me, who refuse to grow up.
