THE BEST Animated

Ghost in the Shell 2.0

Ghost in the Shell 2.0

Mamoru Oshii’s anime classic goes Blu-ray with Ghost in the Shell 2.0, which features new CG scenes and a remixed soundtrack; purists, breathe easy: the original version is also included.

George and AJ (Short Film)

George and AJ (Short Film)

If you ever wondered what happened post-Carl in Up, Pixar explains all; the short film George and AJ shows things going downhill, underground, and interplanetary. Thanks, Thorir!

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

Video: Cardboard

Save your shipping boxes: Sjors Vervoort’s Cardboard is a stop motion/CG film making use of over 800 cutouts, with animations composited into the film frame by frame; film stills here.

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.
