Halloween is coming soon, so Joey’s doing a very special Final Destination retrospective called The Final Celebration! In this first review, he looks at the movie that started it all, where Stifler gets decapitated, a teacher plays a fatal game of Mouse Trap, and Ali Larter has trouble finding shirts that cover her belly button.

Brendan Fraser plays a cartoonist (basically, a thinly veiled takeoff on R. Crumb) who gets sent to the afterlife and/or Cool World while one of his creations, a cartoon monkey (voiced, oddly enough, by John Turturro) takes control of his comatose body and runs amok.
While a lot of movies might be pieces of crap thrown up on a screen, Doggy Poo takes it to the next (literal) level. It’s a 2003 stop-motion animated Korean short about mortality and the meaning of existence… starring a talking dog turd.
Watch as Joey explains why he likes everything about it: Eric Bana’s performance, the references to the comics, the exploration of Bruce Banner’s psyche, and yes, even the giant poodle.
Watch as Joey has a hard time distinguishing this movie from Pixar’s latest movie (and big disappointment) Brave. Both have main characters that transform into bears and need to go on journeys of self-enlightenment, or some bull crap like that. Oh, but this one has two Canadian bull moose, with one played by Rick Moranis, which is a clever bit of casting, eehhh?
In this prequel to the 1994 Flintstones movie, we get a smoking hot Betty, a dumbass villain with an even dumber motivation, Stephen Baldwin in the role he was born to play, and worst of all, a pointless and unintentionally creepy appearance by the Great Gazoo!
Here’s Joey’s latest countdown, in which he selected ten of his favorite cartoon theme songs and had members of a couple of forums vote on them. The five with the most votes made the cut (with Joey breaking any ties himself), including TaleSpin, The Powerpuff Girls, and more!
Joey reviews both a guilty pleasure and a popular show he can’t get into, in this Nicktoon double feature!
Joey teams up with Sofie for one of the biggest superhero movie disappointments in recent memory. Watch the review and relive all the singing, dancing, omelet-making, Twist-doing, amnesia-getting, and emo strutting!
Joey watches Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, starring the voice of Johnny Depp (who else?) as a shy groom who practices his wedding vows near a grave and ends up married to a murdered bride, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter (who else?). This is one of Joey’s favorite Burton films, and he explains why it’s basically the grown-up version of Burton’s other famous stop motion film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
It’s the last installment of The Batman Chronicles, where Joey reviews a more lighthearted, fanciful Batman series that features team-ups with mostly B-list heroes from the DC universe.
It’s Joey’s hate-filled review of The Return of Jafar, a lazy, badly animated cash-in on Aladdin, and the first (and probably worst) Disney direct-to-video sequel!
Joey’s setting the record straight. He doesn’t want you to watch this movie. Here are five good reasons why you should stay away from The Cat in the Hat.
It’s Part Two of the Batman Chronicles! This time around, Joey looks at Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, the feature-length film from the team behind Batman: The Animated Series.
Joey brings us the first installment in a special series called Crossing the Line, where he examines live action movies based on cartoons. First up is M. Night Shyamalan’s take on the popular Nicktoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. Here’s the twist: It sucks!
In this episode, we find out why the Academy would even consider Tinkerbell sequels for Oscars these days. It’s a review of the computer-animated Nicktoon that was one of the very first nominees for Best Animated Feature!
As part of a special series of reviews, Joey looks at three generations of animated Batman media. First up is the hilariously lame The Adventures of Batman, featuring the voices of Casey Kasem and Ted Knight, and brought to you by the same studio that gave you He-Man!
For his first episode, Joey judges this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Animated Feature! Well, three out of five, anyway.
