Gargoyles: Shadows of the Past – Episode Review

When Avalon sends the skiff – and Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx – to the original site of Castle Wyvern in Scotland, Goliath is excited. He wants to show off his old home. But a storm is brewing, and not just the thunder-and-lightning kind. Strange things are happening; Goliath is hallucinating. Is it just old, painful memories surfacing, or are there other powers at work? This is the site of many deaths, after all, not the least of which are Hakon’s and the Captain of the Guard’s. Does the residue of this destruction and despair pollute the region? Maybe the locals have good reason to call the place haunted…

Gargoyles: The Mirror – Episode Review Continued

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the trickiest of them all? Puck! Demona is about to get more than she bargained for. You’d think after 1000+ years of life she’d know better than to trust a fae.

The Many Faces of Disney Villains – Pictures!

Sleeping Beauty - Maleficent - dragon rising

Disney is known for its beautiful artwork and fluid character designs. There are few cinematic experiences as impressive to the eyes as a Disney production. The Disney villains are no exception. Black, red, purple, green, blue – it’s like a rainbow of evil! I thought it would be interesting to take a peek at other artists’ renderings of these iconic villains. These artists appreciate villains as much as we do, and that in itself is a beautiful thing.

Consider this Disney Villain Art Appreciation.

Shoutout to Disney Villain Henchmen

Cruella De Vil 101 Dalmatians mad at henchmen

The spotlight’s normally on the Big, Bad Villain, and rightly so. They’re the one the hero fights and fears. They’re the brains behind the operation. But who executes those evil schemes? Few villains do their own dirty work. That’s right, the work falls to the henchmen. The cronies’ competence can range from insta-fail to impressive, though usually they’re a mix of incompetence and comedic relief. The majority of the time, it’s thanks to their mistakes that the hero stands a chance. Only after facing down the assorted henchmen is the protagonist ready for the Boss Battle.
It’s about time the henchman received a bit of appreciation.
