Beetlejuice - The Animated Series Coming to DVD from the Shout! Factory

If it were possible that the people behind both the Shout! Factory and the Scream Factory could be combined into one sexy woman, I'd propose and then immediately start dry-humping her leg raw until the overall friction caused a scorching orgasmic blaze.

It’s Showtime! Beetlejuice Cartoon Headed to DVD From Shout Factory!

Just yesterday, Icons head honcho RobG wrote up a piece dedicated to children’s cartoons spawned from the most unlikeliest of films (including Robocop, The Toxic Avenger, check that out here for a nostalgia rush!), one of which included Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice! A good majority of these cartoon’s have not made the transfer over to DVD, with only a couple episodes of Beetlejuice having been included on the film’s Blu-ray release. Someone over at Shout! Factory must have read our article, because they’ve just announced that they’ve acquired the rights from Warner Bros. to release the entire series onto DVD for the first time!

I was equally terrified & fascinated with Beetlejuice growing up, and I vaguely remember catching the cartoon airing on Cartoon Network every so often. Was anyone else a fan of the series as a kid? I know I’m excited to take

"Slings and Arrows" Review | That Willful Suspension of Disbelief Which Constitutes Poetic Faith

  • Pajiba
Two things up front. One: I loathe the theatre. The self-indulgence, the ungainly intensity, the often inescapable pathos and pretentiousness, all of it. As far as I am concerned, theatre plays should be quarantined and only released into the world when supervised by Mike Nichols and/or Emma Thompson.

Two: I've been around. Enough to be frustrated that the Centauri Republic had an Emperor and deeply unsettled by how hot Ziggy Sobotka was in "Generation Kill," to know that C.J. Cregg's codename is "Flamingo" and wish I could forget ever seeing Cy Tolliver torture Veronica Mars. I'm a TV whore.

So when I tell you that a series about theatre makes most of the above, and Simon Tam, look like idiot children, I want you to understand my full meaning.

Gushing lends itself to hyperbole, but I genuinely want as many people as possible to give this gem a shot,

'Slings and Arrows' The Complete Series Coming On Blu-Ray

We all know that all the three seasons of the Canadian TV series Slings and Arrows have been on DVD for quite a while. Now, Acorn Media, a film and TV series distributor, has announced that the complete series will come on High Definition Blu-Ray in North America on October 26.

This dark comedy from The Movie Network, a Canadian premium cable network, talks about a theatre festival.

In the fictional town of New Burbage, legendary theatrical madman Geoffrey Tennant (Paul Gross) returns to the New Burbage Theatre Festival, the site of his greatest triumph and most humiliating failure, to assume the artistic directorship after the sudden death of his mentor, Oliver Welles (Stephen Ouimette). When Geoffrey arrives he finds that Oliver is still there, in spirit anyway, and with his guidance (and often in spite of it) Geoffrey attempts to reconcile with his past while wrestling the festival back from the marketing department.

Top Ten Tuesday: Animated Series Based on a Movie

Usually we see animated cartoons as a separate entity from live-action movies, or else they spawn a major movie event or franchise. This would be the case with G.I. Joe, which opens this Friday, August 7 in theaters nationwide. However, there are a select number of memorable animated television series that were based on a live-action movie. Having broke the mold in that sense, we decided to come up with our list of the Top Ten Animated Series Based on a Movie. Each of these animated series garnered various levels of success and popularity from various eras on TV nostalgia.

10. Tales From the Cryptkeeper (1993)

This early 90’s cartoon of course was based on the HBO Series and two Movies (Demon Night and Bordello of Blood). Of course the content was completely watered down, taking out the violence and other questionable material.Instead the episodes were about machines that turned people into wax,
