In part one, I looked at the various film and print logos for Walt Disney's first two animated features: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio.

I post this because I don't want to upset others, but I want to speak up about it, and … Continue reading An Anxiety Post…

An animated Mad Max movie is something I'd really love to see... An animated Mad Max movie would also be something rather unprecedented in the mainstream film market... A mostly live-action film franchise going animated... When does that usually ever happen? When I say a live-action series going animated, I mean a series that's going … Continue reading Animad Max
