DuckTales is back and better than ever!

It was considered the best of the Disney Afternoon line-up that also included great shows like: Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck and The Gummy Bears.

Binary System Podcast #70 – The Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts

This week Binary System is joined by Captain Slack (aka the official BSP photographer, aka Kathryn’s husband Nathan) and Jada Scarbrough (Georgia Peach, math wiz, and card-carrying Cumberbabe…no really, she has a card) to recap the hell out of this year’s Oscar-nominated animated shorts, because we love us some cartoons.

Nobody can quite agree on which one is the absolute best or worst (you’d think we could all agree on westerns and space golf) but we’re pretty sure which one will win.

Special Two-Disc Blu-ray™ and DVD Arrive in Stores Everywhere

September 13, 2016 From Shout! Factory

Good grief, has it really been thirty years since The Transformers – The Movie came out? I still have vivid memories of watching this for the first time in the theater, crying, laughing, cheering, and practically getting up in the aisle and dancing (have I mentioned how much I love the soundtrack?). If you’ve ever wondered why I feel personally betrayed by the Michael Bay Transformers films, it’s because what I really wanted out of those was a live-action version of this movie.

Now longtime fans can rejoice, because this September Shout! Factory is releasing a newly remastered copy of the film in both DVD and Blu-Ray, with lots of fun extras. Click the jump for the full press release on this 30th Anniversary Edition.

Review – Batman: Bad Blood

While I’m not the only one that enjoys a solid Batman story, there is something to be said about over saturation of any one character. I understand the choice as a business decision; Batman is the most popular DC characters and he sells well. I’m just at the point where I might need a bit of a Bat-Break. No, DC, stop now – I’m not asking for a Nightfall DC Animated story. Perhaps focus on the other characters of Gotham. Oh wait that’s another TV Show currently on Fox…. Maybe the Bat Family?

Which, to commend DC Animation, is exactly who they focused on in Batman: Bad Blood – the other characters that make up the Bat Family. So where does this film rest in the overall DC Animation collection? Is it going to prepare you for the upcoming Bat-Fleck?

Review – Justice League: Gods and Monsters

To say DC Animation has and continues to have a huge impact on my life would be a bit of an understatement. While I may have made a bit of departure from the DC Comics Universe during its New 52 tenure, the TV and Animation departments have certainly picked up the slack. That’s not saying that the last couple of DC Animated films (Suicide Squad: Assault on Arkam and Batman Vs Robin) didn’t have their flaws.

I was more than relieved to see a departure from the New 52 and a focus on what really for me made the DC Animated universe what it is today: Bruce Timm. When I heard that he was working on an animated film, which would be something of an Else World’s tale, I was more than excited. Is DC Animation back in full force? Or is this just another diamond in the rough.
