Titan A.E. - Treasure Planet

In the early 2000s these films tackled the space epic in animation with surprisingly similar elements. Though both were box office failures, they found a cult following with some teens at the time, so we take a look to see how they hold up and consider what might have been. If you haven't seen them, then nows the time to rediscover Titan A.E. and Treasure Planet

The Last Shark

With Special Guest: Paul Dederick!

This was no boating accident, Jellyheads! This was Italians making their own version of yet another blockbuster. This time it's JAWS! With zero regard for copyright the underwater mechanized menace is redone, but not to bore you with the action you already know the Italians, as they always seem to do, spice things up with their own creative/mind boggling/cheesy effects. As far as we're concerned, this is The Last Shark!
