One of the reasons why I and so many other people love documentaries is that they inform and engross us with stories about subjects we never would have given attention to.

Animated Anarchy: Ratchet and Clank

Animated Anarchy tries to work out Ratchet and Clank’s killer kinks in this study of multimedia marketing gone haywire. So Ratchet and Clank took a rather decimating hit in the name of video game films, making only $4.8 million according to an article on Cartoon Brew. To put that into perspective, this promising, “for the fans” feature was beaten by Continue Reading...
