Jay Ward and Bill Scott.
Those were magic names of my childhood, names responsible for Crusader Rabbit, Fractured Flickers, Hoppity Hooper, George of the Jungle, Super Chicken, Dudley Do-Right, Aesop & Son, Fractured Fairy Tales, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and…Mr. Peabody & Sherman. There have been movie attempts to recapture that magical style in the past (George came close), but now it’s time for Mr. Peabody & Sherman, a CGI-animated feature (also available in 3-D), directed by Rob (The Lion King) Minkoff.

The Lego Movie: Movie Review

IN THE February 10 ISSUE

FROM THE 2014 Articles,
andMovies
SECTIONS

by Roy Runnels



When I first saw the trailer for The Lego Movie, all I saw was a cheap cash grab to sell more Lego sets. The idea of a movie about Lego’s just didn’t really work to me. As time went on and more info (and trailers) started coming out, the better and better the idea became. All of the sudden we had an all star cast and trailers that were really funny. It may not be a cash grab, but I guarantee that this movie will sell Lego sets.

With the rising popularity of Adventure Time, cartoons have become mainstream among the people they were popular with 20-something years ago. Since those people are “all grown up,” it’s become necessary to cater them toward adults and that is exactly what Pendleton Ward, the creator of Adventure Time seeks to do with his newest and quite popular, series: The Bravest Warriors.
