Oswald Reviews: Inside Out


Okay. Before I go ahead, I highly recommend that if you haven’t seen this film, go watch it before reading this. I won’t be spoiling anything, I just want you to go into this film like I did. I didn’t know much beside the premise and some of the clips released on the Pixar YouTube channel. Go watch it now. Thank you.

Oswald Reviews: The Super Mario Brothers Super Show


Unlike Bubsy and Battletoads, The Super Mario Brothers Super Show actually was picked up for a full cartoon. I actually remember watching this as a kid. I actually really liked to pick up a copy of the show from Blockbuster. It was something I really enjoyed as a kid. Does it hold up? Well, let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: Battletoads (Television Pilot)


Battletoads is known by many gamers as a fun co-operative beat-em-up. I actually have never played it, as I didn’t get a Nintendo Entertainment System until I was twelve. I only own a couple games on the system, Battletoads not being one of them. Thus, I am not exactly familiar with the classic game.

Just like Bubsy, Battletoads had a cartoon television pilot that never aired. Could this one be as bad as Bubsy, or have I finally found something worth watching? Let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: The Spongebob Movie 2: Sponge Out of Water


I love Spongebob. I really do. I remember watching it when I was younger, and I still have so many cherished memories from this show. It is possibly the television show I quote the most. (ARE YOU FEELING IT NOW, MR. KRABS?)

I also watched the first Spongebob movie when it came out on DVD, and I loved it. When I first heard of rumors that a sequel was surfacing (no pun intended), I was hyped as heck. What would it be about? Would it continue from the first film? Will it finally explain where the freaking heck The Krusty Krab 2 is? When the first trailer was released, I was even more hyped. It’s exactly like I remember it! I was happy to see Stephen Hillenburg back in the writer’s chair. I had to see this.

I did end up seeing the film soon after it was released. What did I think of it? Well…let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: The Road to El Dorado


One of the lesser known Dreamworks films, this film came out in 2000. It may not be known that well, but it still has a good group of followers.

The Road to El Dorado is a film that I wanted to see for a long time. I’e heard decent reviews about it, and it’s only now that I got a chance to sit down and watch it. Is it as good as some people say or something that should remain forgotten? Let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: The Christmas Tree


I love Christmas!┬áThere’s nothing better than drinking hot cocoa in front of the warm fire during a cold winter’s night. The season of giving and, of course, Christmas specials!

I thoroughly enjoy watching a good dose of The Grinch and Charlie Brown. They are just such classics. But then there are the other ones, the ones that everyone forgets about. The ones that make your stomach churn the minute you hear their name. I’m talking about the Christmas catastrophe, “The Christmas Tree.”

But let’s be a bit more forgiving here. Can this not be as bad as it looks? Or is it truly the worst Christmas special of all time? I mean, how could such a seemingly innocent tale be so bad? Let’s see.
