Video Show: Cartoon Palooza

VIDEO: ParaNorman (2012)

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.

VIDEO: Eight Crazy Nights (2002)

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?

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.

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.

VIDEO: Doggy Poo (2004)

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
