The Animaniacs Revival Project, a group on Facebook devoted to trying to convince Warner Bros. to produce more episodes of the animated television show Animaniacs, have recreated the opening sequence of Animaniacs. Created using Flash 8, the sequence is re-animated in South Park’s cut-out style by UK animator “Dr. Toonhattan”. I use to love this show, but who didn’t? Watch the video embedded after the jump.

Last week, South Park aired their Inception parody episode, entitled “Insheeption”. You can watch the full episode for free, in HD, at South Park Studios. If you were planning to check it out but haven’t yet, I’d recommend doing so now, as waiting until after the article could seriously diminish your chances of enjoying it.
Although, you may not even need this article to recognize the resemblance between a scene in the recent South Park episode and a comedy sketch from College Humor called “Inception Characters Don’t Understand Inception”, which has garnered over half a million views and was even posted on this very site. The writers at College Humor certainly noticed the resemblance, and were quick to assert that South Park ripped them off.
Read their accusation, as well as Matt Stone‘s response, after the break. Read More »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.
BREAKING BAD (SEASON 2)
Season 2 of Breaking Bad opens with a disturbing but seemingly innocuous shot of a charred stuffed bear floating in a pool, and its relevance is not made clear until the season finale. When provided full context, the remains of that bear is a brutal, in-your-face emblem of the destructive consequences of Walt’s moral decay. Consider the characters we met in Season 1: Walt a mild-mannered chemistry teacher, and Jesse an obnoxious, irresponsible punk. Season 2 finds these characters reaching emotionally devastating new highs and lows, and experiencing those moments with them is as compelling as it is stressful. Between this season and its last, Breaking Bad has solidified itself as one of the greatest shows ever made. If you aren’t watching it, you are missing the best that serialized drama has to offer.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Cast & crew commentaries, deleted scenes, Inside Breaking Bad – 13 Featurettes About The Making of Each Episode, Walt’s Warning Featurette, “Negro y Azul” Music Video, “Better Call Saul” Commercial, 11 Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes, Cop Talk with Dean Norris, a gag reel, 6 Breaking Bad Original Webisodes, Season 3 Sneak Peek, and Vince Gilligan’s Photo Gallery.

Here’s to a school of dagger-propelled, orange barracuda siccing any listmeister who jumped the gun and failed to consider A Town Called Panic for his or her top ten films of 2009. Undeniably the most entertaining and energetic movie of that now-caput year, I found myself funstruck from film’s start to its fireworks-laden finish; ATCP is also 2009’s best animated film, somehow scurrying and climbing past other visionary, grand entries from the oh-nine like Wes Anderson’s fireside-classic Fantastic Mr. Fox, Pixar’s latest crown jewel Up, and Disney’s strong, under-appreciated The Princess and the Frog. This superlative—and I realize how questionable it may seem to those unimpressed by the accompanying image—is not fueled by contrarianism or ostentatious indie preferences; this Fantastic Fest Audience Award winner is simply that effing good. Seek it out.
Last night’s episode of South Park took aim at Watchmen, The Dark Knight, The Spirit and the new trend in Hollywood to produce darker superhero movies. Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns even makes a cameo. Watch a clip above or the full episode on SouthParkStudios.com.
