Ideas/ Commentary


Welcome the Ideas/ Commentary Section!  This is where you can read my Archive of past posts regarding my thoughts about Animation and Film Industry.  Just like my Film Reviews Archives, keep in mind again that I have changed quite a bit since the older articles I’ve posted.  Regarding some of the more angry and hostile commentaries I’ve written about, I stand by much of what I say, although much of the anger I felt at the time has subsided.  If you wish post comments and talk about these topics, I am happy to oblige and engage in discussion about them, but please don’t get too wrapped up in the heat of my articles.  It’s a place for discussion, not to start a fight.  If you feel the need to get hostile and overly antagonistic about my commentaries… guess what…unlike other websites I will approve your comment, but be prepared, because I will write a rebuttal, and it won’t be pretty on your end.  So my simple advice…is play nice.

Other than that, I hope you find my editorials insightful and illuminating.  Enjoy!
