A Couple Animated Beauties From The Brilliant Glen Keane

Y’all remember Glen Keane, right?

Leroy Anderson The (Underappreciatedly) Great

View image | gettyimages.com So, I’m not entirely sure “underappreciatedly” is an actual word, but it’s the right word for the job, because I’m just going to come out and say it: Leroy Anderson’s fantastic. Really great, actually. In fact, were it not for the inescapable, ear-boring “Sleigh Ride”, I suspect he’d be far more recognized [Read More…]

SSF: “The World’s Most Relaxing Film”

There are few things as tense (and genuinely unpleasant) as watching a stomach bug rampage through one’s family. I’m sure we’ve all been there, watching that first child and wondering if their sickness just might turn out to be a one-off incident rather than a “Canary In The Coal Mine” moment. I myself tend to fall [Read More…]

Pay As Much Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain As Possible

The man, in this particular case, is Emmy Award-winning Bear McCreary. And he’s the musical mastermind behind a whole slew of TV shows whose names you’ll surely recognize, even if you don’t recognize Bear’s name. (Yet.) His impressive telivisiography shows off not just his mind-boggling work ethic — Seriously. Writing music for TV is insane — but [Read More…]

Kite Fighting Is Cool. And Terrifying.

“I think everyone should have wings… …just like the birds.” Here’s a brief (but great) little video on Soltar Pipas, or kite fighting, which is one of Brazil’s most popular sports — after football, that is…er, by which I mean “futbol”.  In the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, flying the pipa is more than a leisurely escape [Read More…]

SSF: “Wire Cutters”

A chance encounter proves fateful for 2 robots mining on a desolate planet. This one was making the InterWeb rounds last week, and it’s not hard to see why. Both technically expert and thematically memorable. Sure, it’s got a bit of a surface WALL·E vibe to it, but its protagonist is less chirpy (and less cheery). [Read More…]

Today’s “SVS?” My (Almost) Favorite Dean Jones Film

Most of the obituaries and testimonials regarding recently-departed Disney legend Dean Jones have focused on what many consider his most-beloved (or at least best-known) work, The Love Bug. Followed, in most cases, by references to That Darn Cat! and (sometimes) The Shaggy DA. The first and third are available on Amazon Instant HERE($) and HERE($), and while they’re [Read More…]

SSF: “Paraphernalia”

Another charming, hand-drawn film from a CalArts/Gobelins student. (I’m starting to sound like a bit of a broken record, I know. But if this is what a broken record looks/sounds like, then I’m all for them.) Some very nice little touches in this one, from the way the characters have lines that run down the middle [Read More…]

SVS: “Chef”

Steven Greydanus is right in saying that the film is (perhaps) a little too eager to please, he’s even more right in saying that “I watched pretty much the whole second half of this movie with a smile on my face.” [Read more…]
