DreamWorks Animation keeps bouncing around between quality animated features, and total dreck (looking at you, sequels, threequels, and Monsters vs Aliens). The latest offering, How to Train Your Dragon, thankfully falls into the former category, in large part due to how totally fucking awesome dragons are, right?

At long last, after many years of mystery, wondering, and deliberate obfuscation, we get a glimpse into the strange past of the enigmatic Richard Alpert. And, as it turns out, he’s gotten more of the shaft than Miles O’Brien after he transferred over to Deep Space Nine.
The seemingly unrelated storylines of the main timeline and the alternate timeline are rapidly coming to a head. In fact, it looks like all the pieces in both stories are nearly in place for a triggering incident that will set the fires that burn and rage for the rest of the season. And our very own James “Sawyer” Ford is posed to sit and watch it all burn, with that smarmy smile on his face all the while.
Voting for the 2009 Ursa Major Awards starts today, and the nominee list has been officially released (though many of you already saw the leaked list yesterday). The entire nomination list can be seen on the Ursa Major website. I’m not going over everything, just being snarky about a few of them.
It can be argued that Lost is always at its best when it’s focusing on its key mysteries. It can also be argued that it’s at its best when it really hits into the core of a character. This week’s episode, focusing on the enigmatic and weaselly Benjamin Linus, fires both barrels, and the result is something that fans are already hailing as one of the series’ finest hours.
According to MTV’s Multiplayer Blog next week will see four playable Rock Band tracks from everyone favorite maybe-tranny pop superstar.
Disney’s 1951 animated classic Alice in Wonderland has been the definitive film adaptation for decades. Though it’s no wonder that it’s better than the made for TV version from the ‘80s. Or the made for TV version from the ‘90s. Or that made for TV abortion from last year. So it makes sense that Disney would be the one to do a sequel, one that progresses the story by using elements of Carroll’s story that were left out originally. Plus it has not one, but two, hot bunnies (ha you thought this was going to be a serious and poignant review).
This week on Lost: tensions rise. Lines are drawn. Sides are chosen. And shit gets real.
It’s obvious that Seth MacFarlane is aware of the furry fandom, and he’s even gone so far as to have an episode of American Dad go to a furcon, but lately it seems like he’s revisiting the idea a lot. Like he’s making furry jokes more than black jokes, and he has an entire show that is one stupid black joke.
