An Animated Portrait of Life with the Ghosts of Children

In the countryside of China’s Anhui Province, where Weijia Ma’s father grew up, much of life centered on the ponds. There, women washed vegetables and did laundry; little kids played in the water, swimming and catching fish. Ma grew up in a small nearby city and returned every year for the Chinese New Year and the Qingming Festival, a spring day when people honor their dead loved ones, to see her family and to sweep the graves of their ancestors. The water was also where life disappeared: old villagers told her stories about unwanted little girls being abandoned by rivers and ponds.

Stream On: Super superhero presentations—Superman and Batman

As well as Christopher Nolan did with Batman Begins (IMO the only Batman or Superman film worth the celluloid, save Hollywoodland, a film about an actor who played Superman), I say the Dave Fleischer animated “Superman” shorts of the 1940’s, and the “Batman” animated series of 1992 are the way to go. And notwithstanding the casting and special effects problems avoided, these beautiful series approached High Art.

REVIEW: Injustice (2021)

Every so often there is a story within comics that comes along and blows people’s minds, leaving a lasting impression on the reader that makes us beg for more. In 2013, writer Tom Taylor gave us just such a story with DC’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, which was a prequel comic series to the video game of the same name. Since its release there have been 6 volumes in total for the comic series (Year One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Zero) as well as a sequel to the video game (Injustice 2), which was released four years later in 2017. There was even a comic mini-series called Injustice vs. Masters of the Universe which was released in 2017 and followed on from the alternative ending of the Injustice 2 video game where Superman wins.

Creepshow Ep. 305 – Unsettlingly Horrific Animation/Outta Time [Review]

It’s not too often that Creepshow legitimately unsettles you. The show has scary moments or frightening ones but this week’s stories both do a little bit of unsettling. One half is “Time Out”, directed by Jeffrey F. January, written by Barrington Smith & Paul Seetachitt. This story follows a traditional anthology horror path with someone overusing a magical item to their own personal gain. We’ll start off with this story because the animated section following it, is truly some of the best the show has ever offered.
