Not as bad as everyone says it is. It's great.
I first saw this movie on YouTube and I was really impressed. And, you know what? I still am! The story, animation, songs and characters are great, especially their human counterpart designs. It's too bad this has very mixed reviews, but, hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. The movie is a treat to watch, however, I don't get why it was released to theaters in June 2013 when it clearly feels like a made-for-television film. It doesn't matter, this is such a wonderful piece following "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," regardless if it's a theatrical feature that's like a TV presentation.
In conclusion, "Equestria Girls" is an absolutely fantastic movie. I highly recommend it to everybody!
The Master of Disguise (2002)
Even the trailer shows its stupidity.
I don't need to watch this whole "thing" to see and know it's an unfunny mess. Dana Carvey, who I have never seen or heard of before in my life, puts very little effort into his "performance" as Pistachio Disguisey, (Oh, man, what an idiotic name!), and that is seen in the trailer. I just saw the Nostalgia Critic's review of this a minute ago and I do not blame him at all for bashing it. Just to let you know, I am not, nor will I ever see this crap after watching the Critic's review and the trailer. Carvey's so called Italian accent was so freaking annoying, I could not stand it! "I'm going-a to be a master of disguise! I'm going-a to be a master of disguise!" Aaagh! Thank goodness, Harold Gould, who was playing Pistachio's grandfather, shut him up for me by slapping the idiot! If you want to see a good comedy, see Steve Martin's "The Pink Panther," "Finding Nemo" or "Shrek." Stay away from this and never see it. I know some people already have, but I will never be one of those people after what I witnessed. I can't believe I wanted to see this trash when I was younger in 2002.
What in the living Sam Hill is this?!
Horrible isn't enough to describe how bad this piece of crap is. It's atrocious. Don't believe me? I actually saw it when the sneak peek came on Cartoon Network, and have watched the original YouTube series, but that show is like a two minute, tolerable short film compared to this! The characters are so one-dimensional, that they're painful to watch. Orange is a character that will make a person want to rip his or her ears out and scream. His puns are terrible and his laugh makes you want to bash your head into a ten story wall. The animation and CGI absolutely suck. It is the worst animation I have ever seen on a television program, next to "Chowder" and "Flapjack." Also, might I point out that the human in this show, called, "Nerville" or whatever the heck his name is, is worthless as a bunch of rocks?! Cartoon Network, do the world a favor and cancel this pathetic excuse of a show. You have lost the magic of what your channel truly used to be, and it hurts. Really, physically hurts.
Sam & Cat (2013)
Better Than I Expected it to Be
I just saw the premiere of "Sam and Cat" last night, and when I saw the trailers and previews for it before it came out, I was afraid it was going to be as horrible as the disgrace to comedy that is "Victorious." I was really wrong. From what I saw in the pilot episode, "Sam and Cat" didn't disappoint me at all. This show is very funny with the most adorable moments. Jennette McCurdy shines again as Sam Puckett, Carly Shay's best friend, only this time, she meets Cat Valentine and they become roommates, while starting a babysitting service in Cat's grandmother's home in L.A.
While she isn't as dumb in here like she was in "Victorious," Cat seems to have a few "slow in the head" moments, but she makes up for it quickly by being a sweet, charming character. Sam, on a good note, hasn't changed her personality at all. She is still the same hilarious, rough, aggressive teenager I loved on "iCarly." You do not even know how happy that makes me. She steals the show completely, with Cat helping her, of course.
Overall, "Sam and Cat" has amazed me. Its humor is cute and charming. It's better than I expected it to be. I am already in love with this show, and I just saw the first episode! Is it better than "iCarly?" No, it's up there with it on the scale! Is it funnier than "Victorious?" Oh, heck, yeah! Let's just cross our fingers that "Sam and Cat" gets better as time goes on.
THE FINAL VERDICT AND RATING: 10/10.
Daisy-Head Mayzie (1995)
A wonderful and entertaining movie, but it's not without its flaws.
I remember having "Daisy-Head Mayzie" on videocassette when I was around three or four years old, and I loved it, mainly because the Cat in the Hat was in it. Now, in 2013 of this year, I was so happy to find it on YouTube last night. It felt great to see a lost piece of my early childhood once again.
However, I now realize this movie is not without a couple of flaws. The rhyming isn't all that perfect, and there is almost no explanation for some of the scenes. I understand why people are saying it's not the best "Dr. Seuss" special in the world, but I still love it, nonetheless. The animation is excellent and really lives up to Theodore Geisel's illustrations.
Overall, if you or your kids are Dr. Seuss fans, I highly recommend this special, regardless of its flaws.
Dexter's Laboratory: Rude Removal (1998)
Offensive, Disgusting and Painful to Watch
Just because this is a "Dexter's Laboratory" episode, do not let it fool you. This is a disgusting, foul-mouthed, offensive disgrace disguised as it and I am shocked that Genndy Tartakovsky had the nerve to even make this thing. It feels like a horrible "Robot Chicken" skit, (don't get me started on THAT show), and "Family Guy" rolled into one. Don't get me started on "that" show, either. I know that this was an in-house project created as a gag for the real "Dexter's Lab," but I'm not giving this piece of garbage any excuses. It is absolutely terrible. Even its title card is revolting to look at. When I first saw the title card while watching it on YouTube, I was beyond outraged. The whole short is a complete, utter mess, with stereotypical, unfunny jokes, and a ridiculous amount of swearing. Thank goodness, it is bleeped out. Leonardo DiCaprio's "Titanic" is more child-friendly than this.
I don't care if "Rude Removal" is a "Dexter" short. In my personal opinion, it should have never been made or brought to television. It should have been thrown into the garbage where it belongs.
Rating: 1/10. (Like "Fritz the Cat," it doesn't deserve a chance).
Back at the Barnyard (2007)
Next time, Nickelodeon, leave the movies you make alone.
I loved "Barnyard: The Original Party Animals" when it first came out. It was a funny and cute movie with action and a lesson for kids who were too selfish to be responsible, "A strong man stands up for himself, a stronger man stands up for others." That obviously meant for you to look out for your friends instead of thinking of yourself. When you turn such a great movie into a television show, what could possibly go wrong? "Back at the Barnyard" is your pitiful answer.
This show is so insipid and dumb, it makes Homer Simpson look smart. There is hardly any mention of Otis' lost father or Daisy and her calf, Ben. Most of the episodes consist, (I have seen a few), of the animals being stupid and messing around with the humans. We saw that once in the original film, Nickelodeon, why would you wanna make us see it again? One of the characters, Nora Beady, is a big example of "Back at the Barnyard's" cheesy and pointless jokes. I will admit that she was funny in "The Original Party Animals," but in this cartoon, she is so obsessed with trying to prove that Otis and his friends aren't normal, that it's just plain ridiculous.
And, might I point out, what is the purpose of Abby's character? She was never in the film, so why did they replace Daisy with her? It's completely useless and deserves an explanation.
Overall, "Back at the Barnyard" is a worthless cartoon that does nothing, but become terrible in every way possible. In my mind, there is only one "Barnyard," and that's the movie. All I have to say about this poor excuse for a cartoon is, thank goodness it is now gone.
This cartoon came on Cartoon Network's sister channel, Boomerang early this morning. I had decided to watch something on it to help wake me up, and "Puppy in My Pocket" was the only thing that was airing. I was expecting a cute and endearing show about dogs since I love them so much, but no. This is not what I wanted. What I experienced was a poorly animated, cheesy, unsatisfying and stupid excuse for a cartoon about animals.
I noticed that "Puppy in My Pocket: Adventures in Pocketville" was made by the Italian animation company, Mondo TV, the same people who created two, atrocious movies about the R. M. S. Titanic; "The Legend of the Titanic" and its sequel, "Tentacolino." When I saw the advertisement for this show on Boomerang, I was thinking it would be fun to watch. Wow, was I ever wrong!
The animation and character designs are awful, and I saw that most of their mouths were out of sync with the actors' lines. I'm not kidding. The humans and dogs' lips move with their speaking patterns so fast, that you cannot understand what they're saying at all.
Besides the animation, the whole thing was absolutely ridiculous. I mean, really, puppies on a magical island, and living together in a large, luxurious, castle-like home? What is this, a dog version of "The Wizard of Oz?"
"Puppy in My Pocket" is a terribly executed show. It makes no sense, the animation is horrid and it almost rips off fantasy styled movies or television programs. It is just a sugarcoated, large piece of garbage. If you have a young child who loves this show, that is perfectly fine. As for fans of classic cartoons about cute animals, don't bother with this one. Watch "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" instead.
At Jesus' Side (2008)
Not All That Good
Being a Christian, I love the Lord with all my heart, the things He has done for us, and everything about Him. One of my friends, who is a Mormon, told me to check this movie out. At first, I was excited to see it, but after viewing the film on YouTube, I was a little disappointed.
Jesus Christ is barely even involved in the plot, instead, it's Jericho and his friends that get the screen time. The only seconds Jesus ever has in this are the moments with Him and Jericho to the Crucifixion. Some of the characters aren't that interesting, either. Miguel, for instance, is supposed to be a chameleon with charm and cuteness, but he comes off looking like an obnoxious idiot. And, if he's supposed to be a Spanish speaking animal, why does his voice keep changing to plain English, Irish, and who knows what else? Another problem I have with "At Jesus' Side" is the lack of explaining to the viewers what's going on. Where did Psychosis come from, why does he hate and want to kill dogs, and how did the animals journey miles to Jerusalem? We don't know. The movie never explains it.
The animation, I'll admit, is nice. It can be a bit mediocre at times, but it's decent.
Even though it is supposed to be a film based on the Bible, "At Jesus' Side" is a movie you'll only want to watch once. The acting is... eh, there are no explanations for most of the scenes, and it becomes sugarcoated throughout half of the film.
If you want to see a good animated movie about the story of Jesus, I recommend, "Jesus: He Lived Among Us" or "The Miracles of Jesus" from 1989. As for "At Jesus' Side," it's not the movie I expected to see.
Fritz the Cat (1972)
My Eyes! My Poor Eyes!
Why, why, why would anyone, in the name of Lucy, want to even SEE a movie as stupid and low as "Fritz the Cat?!" I just... This movie is about as fun as watching paint dry for hours. That is how bad this film is, and I would be happy to discuss the grudge I have with it!
First off, the voice acting is terrible. The characters' voices are either too high or not suitable for them at all. There is one pig cop in this movie, whose voice sounds like it was done by Patrick the Starfish from "SpongeBob." I know the actor was trying to do his best to make this character sound dumb, but that voice just doesn't cut it. I'm really starting to not care at this point. The only exception out of the voice cast was Skip Hinnant, the voice of Fritz. He actually sounded like a teenager, and Hinnant managed to pull the voice off.
Second of all, the animation is wretched and downright obnoxious. Sometimes, it looks almost like something from Disney, other times, it looks like a cartoon that Warner Bros. would create, and finally, the colors, in four scenes, blend in with the background; when the characters are smoking, to Fritz's pointless hallucinations, when Bertha the Crow shoves joints into his mouth, the scene where he goes back to his dorm and sets his exam notes on fire, and a random sequence with a bird who was snapping his fingers to '60's music. The coloring is beyond ugly, and you can't make out what is going on. I know this is a cartoon from the 1970's, but it doesn't put the least bit of effort into itself whatsoever. It's not even trying, I swear.
But the hugest grudge I have with this movie is the title character, himself. Sweet mother of Pearl, I hate, no, despise Fritz with a passion! He is a complete idiot to everyone, he doesn't give rat's hat about anything, and he makes out with female animals for his own freaking amusement! My poor eyes!
It is so clear that this movie has neither smarts, explanations, consistency nor decency to save its life. It makes "Family Guy," another cartoon I hate, look like Shakespeare, and it has no plot or effort put into it.
I refuse to give this stupid, utterly disgusting motion picture the satisfaction to be appreciated, watched or mentioned in a future reference! "Fritz the Cat" is garbage! No, uh, uh, I shouldn't say that, it's garbage of garbage!
You want my verdict of your film, Ralph Bakshi? Well, here ya go, I hope you're happy!
THE FINAL VERDICT AND RATING: 1/10 (It doesn't even deserve it.)
