For over a decade, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation have been releasing original animated films. Some of them have been fantastic, a few better than any of the live action movies if you ask me.
What can I say? To me, the eighties was the last true decade of cinema. Studios were more willing to take risks back then, we’re talking about a time where they made kids toys for horror movies. Now , it seems like everything has to be based on an existing IP. Not that remakes are always bad, in fact, that’s another thing the eighties seemed to do right.
If you’re a fan of Kevin Smith and have been following him on social media, then I’m sure you’ve heard the news about his recent heart attack. Luckily, he is currently making his recovery, but this made me think about how much of an impact both Smith and his work have had on me.
So, last week I was looking for something to watch and came across DOGMA. It had been awhile since I had seen it, but I was instantly reminded why this is one of my favorite movies, and probably my favorite Kevin Smith film.
You may recall that during our Hellraiser episode, we mentioned that a new installment of the franchise was in production. At that time, details were very vague about Hellraiser Judgement and it was only a month ago that we got an official trailer. My initial thought was that it looked halfway decent, at best. Now, after seeing it, I can say that was a pretty fair assessment.
