FrankenweenieIf you were like me and missed the movie in the theater (I am still kicking myself over that), you will be happy to hear that the arrival of this zombie doggy at your door is only weeks away.

Disney & Tim Burton have announced the Blu-ray & DVD release of the film on January 8th.

Again if you are like me, you will be adding this to your calendar to run out and pick it up on release date to save a few bucks and of course be able to finally get to see this film.

I love Tim Burton, his stop-motion animation and even his live motion short of Frankenweenie. What? You did not know Frankenweenie was originally a live action short film? Yep it was. In fact it appeared on the Nightmare Before Christmas DVD, but now you will be able to own it on the 4 disc Blu-ray set (which also includes the 3D version of the film)….Santa better remember to bring me my LG 3D TV I asked for.

Order your copy of [amazon_link id=”B005LAIIA8″ target=”_blank” ]Frankenweenie[/amazon_link] today and avoid the rush to the store 🙂

A few years ago I first wrote about the possibility of an animated version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over at ScifiSlacker.com and much like the ill-fated animated Star Trek they teased me with as well was never to be.

BtVS AnimatedAfter fours year one gives up hope that anything will ever happen. The one day you stumble on a tiny little blip in the TV Guide telling you that just this month someone leaked the 3 minute pilot for the BtVS animated series and your little heart starts a pumping. Hell, with the success of the BtVS Season 8 comics (gosh those are good) maybe they could see fit to bring about this once shelved project and breath life back into the Vampire Slayer franchise on the small screen.

 The clip is very nicely done and done in a style of animation that I really like similar to the Batman The Animated Series cartoon. Very cool (if this does ever come into being I hope they stick with this style and don’t screw it up by making it pseudo anime).

 Now this little pilot does have all our favorite characters doing their own voices except Sarah Michelle Gellar who apparently is too good to go back to doing anything Buffy related (what has she done lately besides the voice of Bufy on Robot Chicken?), but the girl doing Buffy’s voice (Giselle Loren) is most excellent and you would never even miss that other actress (what’s-her-face).

So to read more about Buffy the Vampire Slayer the Animated series or sign the petition to bring it on (maybe a DVD movie like the resurrection of Futurama) head over to BuffyAnimated.com. Watch and enjoy while you can (I am sure this will be yanked from YouTube at some point).

Star Wars Clone WarsWell the reviews are starting to come in for the new Star Wars animated film and they are not all that great. Personally, I was none too impressed by the trailers. This animation is doing nothing for me. It looks like the video clips in the video games but not quite as good. Not sure why Lucas decided to go with this choppy new look (the cartoon networks mini mini-series was done better than this feature film). An article in the Reading Eagle dared to compare this style to anime. I don’t think they could have been more wrong. Maybe they just don’t know what the anime style of animation really is or not. But this is not anime; it is video game animation.

Yes I will be going to see it. The geek in me propels me to do so, but I am not expecting too much especially now that I am reading reviews, which are pretty much telling the things I was already feeling about it. I hate to say it but as for the sci-fi animated films coming out this summer, Fly Me to the Moon might be the best of the bunch. And if I am going to spend the money to go to the new IMAX Theater here in Reading it might as well be for the 3D flick. I’ll hit one of the other theaters for a matinee for Star Wars Clone Wars.

Will the animated series due out this fall on the Cartoon Network be the same crappy animation?
