THE BEST Animated

NotLD: Reanimated

NotLD: Reanimated

A Romero version of Star Wars: Uncut, Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is an ongoing collaborative project; artists reinvent scenes from the 1968 cult classic in their own style.

Seth MacFarlane’s Secret

Seth MacFarlane’s Secret

So much for hush-hush, as Seth MacFarlane’s Secret is out: Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show are less about equal rights and more about equal nights (on Fox).

Short: Pigeon Impossible

Short: Pigeon Impossible

We’re surprised that Pigeon Impossible isn’t a Pixar film: this high flying short was created by Lucas Martell and shows that a bird in the case is worth about a billion in the bush.

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

This Vitruvian Voltron tee may seem anachronistic, but we are talking Da Vinci here: we think a flying fortress made out of robotic lions would be right up the renaissance man’s alley.

The Astronomer’s Dream

The Astronomer’s Dream

To call The Astronomer’s Dream trippy is a galactic understatement, but we’re slack-jawed over its amazing details; you can support indie director Malcolm Sutherland by buying the DVD.

Trailer: Train Your Dragon

Trailer: Train Your Dragon

In theaters 3/26/10, Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon is every child (and child at heart’s) dream come true: it features Vikings, misunderstood lizards, and all-you-can-eat sheep.

Video: Island of Horrors

Video: Island of Horrors

The Seafarers return for a Halloween visit to the Island of Horrors; it’s creepy, jarring, and a bit disjointed, but we couldn’t resist the chance to sample zombie pizzas and mummy wraps.

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Best product tie-in ever: Eddie Riggs makes a cameo on Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, moonlighting (of course) as a totally metal roadie for Dethklok — well, everyone but Murderface.

Trailer: Cup of Tears

Trailer: Cup of Tears

Sci-fi/martial arts flick The Cup Of Tears is extremely low-budget, but we couldn’t tell from this trailer: it’s a hybrid CGI/Live Action film by Gary Short that’s shot using a RED camera.

Video: Klingon Propaganda

Video: Klingon Propaganda

You’d have to be a targ to not love this Klingon Propaganda video, secretly released (aka viral) to recruit new sons of Kahless; the uniforms and D7 cruisers have a distinct ToS flavor.

Funny: Pixar Intro Parody

Funny: Pixar Intro Parody

The lamp serves time for his crimes: this Pixar Intro Parody begins with a media frenzy and jail time, but unlike most of the Hollywood elite, its story ends with electrifying results.

Family Guy: SSSDS

Family Guy: SSSDS

Available 12/22/09, Family Guy: Something, Something, Something, Darkside is Seth MacFarlane’s latest faithful Star Wars retelling, this time parodying The Empire Strikes Back.

Video: Cardboard

Astro Boy v. Peacekeeper

Astro Boy v. Peacekeeper

We enjoyed the Arena Battle clip, but this Astro Boy vs. Peacekeeper video gives us exactly what we want: a giant robot on not-so-giant robot, city-leveling slugfest (with butt guns).

Short Film: Yellow Cake

Short Film: Yellow Cake

Yellow Cake starts off innocently enough, but this mid-century style cartoon quickly morphs into something far more post-modern and disturbing with inequality, unrest and war.

Arena Clip: Astro Boy

Arena Clip: Astro Boy

This latest Arena Clip from Astro Boy isn’t quite as exciting as the Metro City clip, but it gives us a taste of robot-on-robot combat (Little Stinker FTW!); the movie hits theaters 10/23.

UAF Hockey Opening

UAF Hockey Opening

We’re used to crazy sports animations, but this Alaska Nanooks opening features the most awesome polar bear ever: it destroys a solar system, obliterates our moon and nukes Anchorage.

Superman/Batman: PE

Superman/Batman: PE

Now available: Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is a buddy cop film with our two favorite caped crusaders battling seemingly insurmountable odds: Lex Luthor is the US president.

Movie Trailer: Metropia

Movie Trailer: Metropia

It’s a pity it’ll only be released in Sweden, because this full trailer for Metropia has us looking over our shoulders in a good way: the animated film is a paranoiac’s worst nightmare.

Funny: Technology

Funny: Technology

Mark Fiore’s Technology is an animated short film that dares to ask (and rhyme) what happens when technophiles fully unplug from Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. Thanks, Chris!

Funny: Jetsons Extended

Funny: Jetsons Extended

Meet George Jetson: the overly optimistic future-utopia gets a postmodern makeover with alimony, divorce hearings and secret robot mistresses in the Jetsons Theme Song Extended.

Trailer: First Squad

Trailer: First Squad

Debuting today at the Alamo Drafthouse and opening in Russia 10/15, we don’t get a word of this First Squad anime trailer–but what we see rocks: WW2, zombie knights and Nazis.

Metro City: Astro Boy

Metro City: Astro Boy

It’s got adventure, it’s got comedy, it’s got giant hovercraft called The Spirit of Freedom: we promise this Escape from Metro City clip for Astro Boy will rock your rocket-powered socks.

Short Film: The Cat Piano

Short Film: The Cat Piano

Winner at numerous Australian film festivals, The Cat Piano is a stylish take on film noir by The People’s Republic of Animation with sensuous poetry and a graphic 2D look.

La Nueva Yma Sumac

La Nueva Yma Sumac

Created by Cocoe Studios for Spanish band La Casa Azul, you don’t need to know Spanish for La Nueva Yma Sumac; it’s a catchy retro homage to video games and superheroes.

Video: Mundo de Papel

Video: Mundo de Papel

Created by Mexico-based Cru de Ladies, Mundo de Papel (“Paper World”) envisions a a life of college-ruled margins; it was made in 2 weeks using 3DS Max, After Effects, and Photoshop.
