It's finally time to talk about the end of Equestria Girls...without really getting the chance to talk about the rest of the series, but hey, Hasbro rushed this out too.

For my first contribution to Red Ribbon Reviewers 2019, I take a look at the first standalone special from MLP season 8, and the only holiday one!

So this isn't quite a Patreon request, but as you'll see, this review would not be possible without Sophie Bergers. And it seems like the right time for it.

It's time to bid farewell to the 80's series (at least as far as my channel goes) by taking a look at the last and potentially best special.
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Unlike the last few cons I've been to, it was not a good experience.
Bonus: Kevin Conroy on inspiration.

So, with the Dailymotion purge, I've started a second Google Drive account, and one of the first things I did was reupload the first three seasons of The Cartoon Hero's Reviews (or at least the ones that already weren't on Vimeo), the unconnected videos that I had to put on Dailymotion like the Irate Gamer list, and the MLP reviews of course. But I also uploaded all the Patreon requests that you can't see anymore, and to make things more convenient for me and for you, I've decided to make an archive post where I'll keep every Patreon-requested review I've uploaded, similar to the one I did for my main series. Enjoy!

The Laikathon officially ends with Laika's future uncertain.
Also, if you haven't seen the Kubo and the Two Strings review, it's now on Vimeo.
The Laikathon ends (sort of?) with the last Laika movie (besides Missing Link) I haven't previously reviewed, The Boxtrolls!
Thursday, April 25, 2019
Wednesday, April 24, 2019
The Laikathon continues with a movie I technically already reviewed. However, that was 7 years ago and with crappy audio...we can do better.
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
The Laikathon officially begins with technically the only movie Laika made under contract for someone else, Corpse Bride!
Monday, April 22, 2019
In case you haven't heard, Laika's latest movie, Missing Link, did the worst out of all of Laika's movies in its opening weekend. I've talked favorably about this studio before, but I think it's time I did a little bit more.

Another con video so soon after the last? I know, I was surprised too.
EDIT: And of course I forget to credit Derek after mentioning him by name...the footage I used was from his Street Fighter: How The West Was Worse video.

Time for my first Patreon-requested two-parter, courtesy of The Animated Ambassador. In this review, I examine the various cuts of The Thief and the Cobbler, compare them, and talk about the movie's famously troubled history.

Well...I certainly never thought I'd be making this kind of video. But like I say in the video itself, it's too stupid to make up.
