TV Review: GOOD VIBES – Season 1 premiere – “Pilot”

Network: MTV, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 With so many animated series vying for audience attention on network and cable television, GOOD VIBES feels like it’s come a little too late to the party. It’s MTV’s companion piece of the return of BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD and it’s a nice fit – it has  similar scatological humor, but it also doesn’t break any new ground either. The premiere episode introduces us to the overweight Mondo (voice of Josh Gad). He’s just moved to the Sunny California beach town of Playa Del Toro with his hot mom Babs (Debi […]Read On »

Now that Fox has announced all of its new Fall 2011 series, it’s time to get a sneak peak first look at them. ALLEN GREGORY is a new animated series that follows a pretentious 7-year old voiced by Jonah Hill. The show will air Sunday nights at 8:30 . Check out the trailer below. When he looks in the mirror, ALLEN GREGORY DE LONGPRE (Jonah Hill, “Superbad,” “Get Him to the Greek”) doesn’t see a child. He sees a young man who is intelligent, sophisticated, worldly, artistic and romantic – characteristics he inherited from his doting father, RICHARD (French Stewart, […]Read On »


CD Review: HOP original soundtrack

Composer Christopher Lennertz could open up a pet store for wiseacre talking animals based on how many of these critters he’s given speedy energy to, but amidst cages filled with chipmunks, dogs, birds and cats, it’s the bunny who’s got the best pedigree. For in a genre that often turns out to be a dragged-along parents’ equivalent to cleaning up after a hyper puppy, HOP is a pleasingly seditious all-ages delight in every department, its Easter bill paid in style by Lennertz’s rambunctious stylings. His thematic melodies run like a mad dervish through HOP’s double-entendres and slapstick gags instead of […]Read On »

CD Review: GNOMEO AND JULIET soundtrack

Gnomeo and Juliet soundtrack | ©2011 Walt Disney Records

There might not be a kitschier combination than the pairing of garden gnomes and Elton John, or in the case of GNOMEO AND JULIET, a more unexpectedly winning one. For when you add up the soothing, soulful sound of the 70’s pop-rock icon with the orchestral bells and whistles that composer James Newton Howard is duty-bound to deliver for the plaster faerie figures, you end up with a musical confection only slightly less eccentric than the classic song mash-ups of MOULIN ROUGE– made far less maddening here by the fact that it’s only Elton John’s immortal tunes that are being […]Read On »

Profile: Elton John brings the beat to GNOMEO & JULIET

Elton John considers life an extraordinarily unpredictable adventure with no necessary time line of events to meet. You just take it as it comes to you. For example, he was in his mid forties when he assumed a new career in composing and producing songs for such musicals as THE LION KING and BILLY ELLIOT. And now at the ripe old age of 63 he and his long time partner David Furnish just adopted twin boys. The proud papa couldn’t be more excited to share his newest venture. “It’s fantastic,” he admits. “I love the smell of nappies and diapers. […]Read On »

Rating: G Stars (voices): James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Jason Statham Writers: Andy Riley & Kevin Cecil and Mark Burton, additional writing by Emily Cook and Kathy Greenberg, based on an original screenplay by Rob Sprackling and John Smith Director: Kelly Asbury Distributor: Touchstone Pictures What would it look like if a bunch of 3D animated garden gnomes danced to famous Elton John/Bernie Taupin songs? If this seems like a strange question, rest assured that the answer is equally loopy in GNOMEO & JULIET. Adapted very, very loosely from William Shakespeare’s similarly-titled tragedy, GNOMEO takes us into a world […]Read On »

With Super Bowl Sunday here, ASSIGNMENT X has decided to review the movie trailer commercials in between the game to see how well the studios are using their mega-dollars they’re spending to draw people into theaters. RIO Release Date: April 15, 2011 Stars: Voices weren’t promoted on the commercial What Is it? An animated movie set in Rio about a bird who needs to find his rhythm. It’s “From the creators of ICE AGE.” Want To See Factor: The trailer is not very funny even though the visuals look somewhat impressive. They should have went the RANGO route and tried […]Read On »
