Tarzan

Posted By on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 12:00 AM

There’s no doubt about it, Disney animated features have particular formulas, and Tarzan features them all.

Posted By on Wed, Jun 30, 1999 at 12:00 AM

For grown-up animaniacs, South Park is an antidote to both Disney’s creatively gutted attempts at realism and the one-size-fits-all happy ending. But that doesn’t mean it’s an easy pill to swallow. Contrary to ad promises, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were forced to cut scenes from...
