An interesting schedule. I skipped a lot of these movies, but I may look some of them up if they’re worth watching. I have seen parts of Bee Movie on TV and I have no interest in seeing more of that atrocity. And today I caught Road to Eldorado on TV. Not bad, but not good. Kevin Kline was good and the animation was good, but certainly not a movie I would need to own. I liked Kung Fu Panda, and it was beautiful in HD. The Shrek films are pretty good. I am not as in love with them as most people, but I thought the first three that I saw were pretty good. The third one has several nods to other films that I enjoyed, so I give it some bonus points for that. Megamind was entertaining, but again, not something I need to see again. Madagascar kinda sucked. The best thing to come out of that is Nickelodeon’s Penguins series. And I need to finally see How To Train Your Dragon. Reviews were very glowing and I have heard some good things.
Yeah a lot of the DW spotlight I have not seen, I do like the Shrek Franchise, but I’m not “in love” with it. The others I’ll have to wait and see… Thanks 4 the support.
Looking forward to Season 2. Dreamworks has some hits, but also a lot of misses. The first Shrek is great, but has suffered for the less then stellar sequels. I do love How to Train Your Dragon. Still think its their best film. Oh and Denver the Last Dinosaur! Wow forgot all about that cartoon. Did enjoy watching it as a kid, but don’t remember much about it.
Yeah the goal is to have “set” spotlight themes, but the DT’s can literally be anything! The Delorean Times as I’ve said before allow us to cover everything that people wanted in ToonCast Classic. Yet we will still have the Seasonal topic stuff too. Season 2 will be very interesting. As I’ve only seen half the films on the schedule.
