If you’ve never seen “Ted” or its sequel let me sum it up for you: a boy wishes his teddy bear will come to life and it does. The two become inseparable lazy pot heads with John not being able to grow up. Apparently, someone thought we needed to know how they got to this […]

Toys and video games became the inspiration for Saturday morning and after school cartoons pretty heavily in the 1980s. Movies based on toys have been going on since the 90s. Movies based on video games have been made for close to that amount of time. All have had different levels of “success”, but most have […]

Toys as movies. It is not something new. When Transformers, GI JOE, He-Man, and Care Bears ruled the toy shelves they also ruled the TV airwaves after school and on Saturday mornings.

When I was a kid there was a few things to look forward to during the holidays: holiday specials, lots of food and desserts, and no school. Network television didn’t offer a lot to watch during the unlike now when you can throw in a Blu Ray disc, find something on cable, or stream almost […]
