Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 (REVIEW)

In the 90's part of my daily after-school ritual was watching Batman: The Animated Series, so I think it’s fair to say that I have a lot of nostalgia for Batman in animated form. With that in mind, I was pretty intrigued to find out about Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, which is based on a four-issue comic book that was originally published in 1986. I’ve never read anything by Frank Miller, but I think most movie fans, like myself, are familiar with the author through Sin City and The Spirit which were also based on his comics.

Attack of the Killer Hamburger

Yes, your Connoisseur of Crap has found another gem!!! I don't know too much about this: it's an animated short I found over at Fearnet.com about killer hamburgers, developed by students at the animation school "Supinfocom Arles" - and I LOVE it. It starts off as innocent as any Pixar family favorite, and quickly becomes a twisted gore fest. Sure, the story about hamburgers out for human flesh is a bit bizarre, but that's how I like it, and the animation is pretty damn amazing! Check it out.

Retro Trailer: "Evil Toons" (1992)

In this, uh, interesting horror-comedy, we get an insider's look at what happens when you mix an animated monster, porn actresses, and David Carradine... and let me tell you, it's pretty darn entertaining, in a watch with a group of friends and a ton of beer sort of way. Four girls land a job cleaning up an old abandoned house for the weekend, only to be interrupted by a creepy man (David Carradine), who shows up with an ancient book that is full of weird spells and drawings of a wolf like creature.

"Halloween" in 30 seconds re-enacted by bunnies!

The 30-Second Remakes by Bunnies internet meme is all grown up, with "seasons" on NetFlix Instant and everything. (Remember, folks - sign up for NetFlix through us!) The question remains...can they do a better Halloween remake than goth-rocker turned Hollywood egomaniac Rob Zombie? Even further, can the Bunnies do a Halloween reboot that the BGH crew will like?
I think they can!

Henry Selick on Making "Coraline"

Apparently Amazon.com asked "Coraline" director Henry Selick to write a one-off guest blog entry about the inspiration for and genesis of the film. In case you've been trapped in a pocket dimension or fighting evil sex vampires on a remote island for the past year, "Coraline" is beautiful, and definitely worth seeing for the inventive stop-motion animation.

New Theatrical Trailer for Shane Acker's "9"

If you've been to the movies any time in the last two months, you've most likely seen the trailer for the upcoming animated feature "9". Produced by Tim Burton and Directed by Shane Acker, the flick's got a distinct flavor all its own and looks like a nice little dark alternative to all of Pixar's happy bug-eyed onslaughts.

"Sebastian's Voodoo" Short Film

With all of the second-rate short films widely available on the Internet, sometimes it takes a bit of digging to uncover those hidden gems you can't wait to share with your friends. "Sebastian's Voodoo," crafted by the immensely talented folks at the UCLA Animation Workshop, is a personal favorite. It's stylish, haunting, darkly humorous, and, beyond enjoyable.

Night of the Living Dead: Reanimation

Do you play with dolls? Sure we all do, but most of us try to only do it in the privacy of our own homes or in certain underground clubs where a password is required and you normally end up in a ball gag. But now you can put your sick pastime to work for a greater good. Or if you’re more into animation or painting, that will work too.
