Even among all the fantastical characters and settings of the Pixar canon, the Cars franchise is an odd duck. Cars and its sequel are widely regarded as the weak links in an otherwise sterling filmography (at least they were, until The Good Dinosaur happened), set in a parallel universe that didn’t make a single goddamn lick of sense. Sure, the cars were used to make a statement about moving too fast to enjoy the sweeter things in life, but that message got drowned out in a chorus of “What is this car-populated world and how the hell does it work?!” Read more
Hello & welcome back to On The Case, where I look at the various TV adaptations of The Hardy Boys. And… this is a weird one. I came into the Filmation Hardy Boys expecting to hate it but I’m more confused by it. And trying to find information on this animated series has proven just as hard as our last review. Going by Saturday Mornings Forever, they explain that Filmation had found success with The Archie show, one year prior to the debut of this cartoon.
A more fully realized attempt came in 1969 when Filmation acquired the rights to the franchise. Having struck a major hit with The Archie Show the year before on both television and the radio, Filmation sought to duplicate that success with the Hardys. As a result, Filmation took some liberties with the source material. Gone were the clean-cut teens as described in the books; instead Frank (Dallas McKennon) and Joe (Byron Kane) were given long hair and the latest mod styling to complement their new vocation as members of a band
The Beast sought to kill with kindness, and take the eyes of children, to eat their souls. And The BELDAM was its name.
But if it has a name, We can Kill it! To this end, I toiled, not once, not twice, but Thrice. And Twice I was met with the copyright Minions of the Beldam itself.
But now, in the new age, its victory is short-lived. BEHOLD!

Here is my review of Usagi Drop. (For Father’s Day)
Special thanks to SusanLucarioFan16 for the lines 🙂
Now onto the Questions.
1)What is with the border?
A video of mine got Content ID’d, so I wanted to see if this would work.
2) Did that proposal happen in real life?
No! That did not happen in real life, these are just two characters in a fictional world getting engaged.
3)What is the map/music you used?
Suburb House: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=140464844
As for the music, I used the following:
Asgore Theme~ Undertale
Shenmue Orchestra~ Shenhua Sedge Flower

Hello & welcome back to A Look at Disney and today, our investigation comes to a close as we look at the 2016 Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature as we look at what I have come to consider one of, if not the most mature features from the Walt Disney Animation Studios. I recall, when I left the theater after watching this movie, I came out thinking that this was a Disney movie less for kids and more for adults. Now yes, it is a film that can be enjoyed by all ages and that is a good thing but considering the climate of the world that we currently live in with this guy as our president….

*heavy sigh* I’m trying to catch up this weekend, but I’m burned out on summer tentpoles. I want to try something a little further off the beaten path. Something smaller, that’s maybe gotten drowned out with all the other hoopla going on. And along comes a little film called Megan Leavey, which somehow flew in completely under the radar and turned out to be one of the better-received films out right now. Yes, this will do nicely.

Does anybody else remember Dracula Untold? I do. Not the film itself, of course — it was so drab, grey, and deliberately uninspired that there really wasn’t anything worth remembering. But I do distinctly recall that Dracula Untold was supposed to be the beginning of a massive Universal Monsters superfranchise before it failed to get the numbers it needed. Luckily, that movie was so unmemorable and did so little world-building that it could be swept under the rug very easily.
So it was that Universal took the Mummy film in development at the time and rejiggered it to be the true beginning of the Universal Monsters superfranchise. And this time, they went all-out. They hired such A-list stars as Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe for the inaugural outing, while tapping Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man and Javier Bardem as Frankenstein’s Monster for future installments. Word has it that Universal is going after Angelina Jolie and Dwayne Johnson to respectively play Frankenstein’s Bride and The Wolfman.
And for the cherry on top, Universal commissioned a new pre-credits bumper scored by none other than Danny Elfman himself, marking all films under the newly christened “Dark Universe.” Read more
