This week on Corona Cartoons Bryan is joined by Alex Orona from Super GG Radio and friend Katherine Cliff to discuss the the Macaulay Culkin movie The Pagemaster. If you’ve ever seen those posters in the library with celebrities that say “READ,” this movie is essentially that. Come for the Macaulay Culkin trivia, stay for the fun animated film that has a love for film and that really wants kids to read.
Note: Bryan also gives some updates about the show at the top of the episode and what to expect before the upcoming Frisky Dingo season.
This week on Corona Cartoons we’re discussing the Don Bluth film The Secret of NIMH, which marks his departure from Disney and the beginning of quite the interesting pivot in his filmography. If the name doesn’t sound familiar to you, the films might. From here he went on to do An American Tail, Land Before Time, Rock-A-Doodle, as well as the video games Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace. This movie is also maybe linked to our love of rats in general. A great episode and a fun discussion. We also give an update to the status of Corona Cartoons and the upcoming Frisky Dingo podcast.
Bryan’s life is slowly returning to normal, but still no new episode of Corona Cartoons this week. We bring to you in its place, After the Hype’s episode on the totally insane Batman Ninja! Enjoy! Regular episodes to return next week!
This week on Corona Cartoons we’ve brought on Johnny Recher and Samantha Garrison to talk about Cowboy Bebop, perhaps one of the greatest anime series of all time. It’s the one show that has the ability to appeal to people from vastly different walks of life, even 20+ years on. If you haven’t had a chance to rewatch, you probably should…and then listen to us take a deep dive on why the show has the staying power it does.
This week on the podcast we talk about one of DC’s wildest experiments – Batman Ninja. Witness all of your favorite Gotham characters re-contextualized for Feudal Japan, and witness the sheer bonkers-ville that ensues. We recommend going into this experience as blind as a bat.
This week on the podcast we all switch bodies! Just kidding. Actually, we talk about the wonderful, fantastical, body-switching, and time-traveling movie Your Name – a cinematic treat with a great story and even greater animation. Special thanks to friend of the show Paul Krueger for joining us and giving some great insight on the film.
This week Graham Mason joins us to battle it out for BEST ANIME FILM. We’ve got quite an awesome selection of films this week and it’s going to be extremely difficult to pick the best one. Ryan is the judge this week.
