Just a quick little check in this week, here are two animated flicks from the 80s for free on YouTube: Shintaro Tsuji’s classic anime film The Sea Prince and the Fire Child and Clive A. Smith’s rock roll fantasy musical Rock & Rule. The first is family friendly, the second is not. Both are products of their time and the culture that birthed them. So, if you are interested in a Japanese fable with a Romeo & Juliet flair or more interested a Canadian animated musical about metal music, ancient rock Gods, and demons, you’re bound to find at least one fun and free film for your weekend enjoyment.
Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
