So, two dorks go to a convention and… talk about qualifying voice actors into the Oscars and the general stigma of animation as its own medium. Those two self-admitted dorks are Joey and our own Joshua the Anarchist, who have a conversation in this vlog style video filmed at MAGFest.
Video Show: Cartoon Palooza
It’s a Cartoon Palooza Slider, where Joey takes more in-depth looks at movies. In the first edition, it’s ParaNorman, one of Joey’s favorite animated films of the year. A small town is attacked by zombies, and their only hope is a misunderstood local boy named Norman who can talk to the dead.
Joey looks at the Hanukkah musical comedy Eight Crazy Nights, the first animated feature starring Adam Sandler, of all people, and asks the age-old question: Does being able to do two impressions give you enough range to be considered a voice actor?
Joey takes a look at the un-appropriately titled Regular Show, the Cartoon Network series about a blue jay and a raccoon and their wacky, surreal misadventures, and its special 2012 Christmas episode, creatively titled “The Christmas Special”.
How about we forget about this crap, and get going with a Danny Phantom movie? The made-for-TV A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! (a live action update of The Fairly OddParents) stars Drake Bell (AKA the guy who killed Spider-Man) as a boy who refuses to grow up in order to keep his fairy godparents.
In another short review, Joey looks at all the nautical nonsense in the first SpongeBob SquarePants stop-motion animated holiday special, It’s a SpongeBob Christmas! But is it worth the 10 bucks at Walmart?
Joey takes a look-
at a beloved book-
made into a movie-
that smells like dookie!
You see, this rhyming business is easy!
Joey lays out the top five reasons you should see the underrated Dr. Seuss gem Horton Hears a Who! This video is in the same vein as his Cat in the Hat review, except that movie sucked!
With Hotel Transylvania director Genndy Tartakovsky onboard to direct a new CGI adaptation of the popular sailor man, Joey takes a look at how it should be done!
Due to the recent hurricane, Joey presents a shorter review of a recent movie. The things he does for you people! Disney’s latest flick Wreck-It Ralph features good animation, licensed characters, and candy puns. Lots of candy puns.
Joey finds out if this is really Disney’s worst animated film! With a reputation of being made when Disney was at its lowest point, The Black Cauldron is a fantasy adventure with obnoxious characters, cop-out endings, and archetypes we’ve seen done to death.
It’s the final installment of The Final Celebration, where Joey discusses why Final Destination 5 redeems the series after the tedious The Final Destination. This includes watching Champ from the Ron Burgundy movie melting in molten tar!
It promised to be “not your little brother’s animation”, but instead, we got Tim Burton-style action figures acting out The Terminator.
Yeah… The Final Destination. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite as final as Final Destination 5. But in terms of quality, it is the lowest point in the franchise (so far)!
It’s Joey’s latest Halloween review, Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, starring everyone’s favorite talking canine and those meddling kids who ride around in a hippie van solving mysteries. This time, however, the monsters are real, because what kids really want to see is the Mystery Gang dealing with voodoo mysticism.
Joey’s Final Celebration continues with a review of Final Destination 3, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead. In this installment, two beautiful ladies go tanning, but then get burned alive! And then there’s the infamous roller-coaster scene. How can you go wrong?
Let’s see if we can still spot Ali Larter’s navel, as well as those iconic Logs of Doom that even Quentin Tarantino idolizes (no joke!). This is the second installment in Joey’s Final Destination retrospective!
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.
