Duck Dodgers in the 24th and 1/2 Century

I'm a sucker for a great title song and title sequence to any TV show, be it live action or animated.  I ran across this great HD version of the Duck Dodgers animated series titles from Funny Garbage (who did an awesome job on this sequence).  Having Tom Jones singing the title song with the Flaming Lips doesn't hurt either.  Click the link, explore the still images, click over to the video and enjoy:

Tokyo Disneyland Ad

A friend turned me onto this beautiful anime-style ad for Tokyo Disneyland.  Unlike most of the state-side commercials for Disneyland and Disney World, this nice little slice of anime isn't overstuff with treacle.  The Tokyo Disneyland ad feels more honest about the Disney experience and what it means to most families.  Enjoy...

Pixar's "Brave" - trailer

I'm probably a little late with this, but I hadn't seen this trailer for Pixar's upcoming Animated Feature.  I've felt that the recent Pixar efforts (while astoundingly well animated) haven't really lived up to the best of Pixar.  I absolutely hated Toy Story 3, and thought Cars 2 was a mess--- but griping about them is for a different post.  Brave looks breathtakingly beautiful, I hope Pixar can revive its old story-telling magic and not feel the need to kick me in the gut, want to reconnect with my father, regret my choices in life, or question my role in the universe-- I just hope it's fun... like Pixar movies used to be.
