Re: Trolls

Even the poster suggests the story will be the same second-generation DW-wannabe "They don't like us, 'cause we're not perfect! " picked-on-freak-flag theme we not only got from Trolls, but also from Sony's Emoji Movie. In case you've ever wondered all these years, folks, THIS is one of th...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

Since rumors suspect Fox needed the 21st/Christmas slot to "compete" with Sony's Spider-Verse movie, by releasing... (drumroll) ...a PG-13 re-release cut of Deadpool 2! Now kid-friendly! (All we have is an untitled Fox slot and an ambiguously ironic Ryan Reynolds Tweet to go by, but the m...

Re: Shrek reboot

My first reaction was basically :shock: , but honestly, even though I guess it still sort of exists within the framework of Universal, I’ve lost interest in DWA since JK left with the acquisition. It’s not DreamWorks anymore and never will be. From what Ben has said, it definitely seems like the po...

Re: Grinch 2018 First Look at Cindy Lou

I loved Horton, actually. Saw it in the theatre, on a plane out to the States, and again on the way home. I have Lorax on Blu but have never gotten around to watching. The more I hear about this new Grinch the more I think I’ll get the Blu. I loved Carrey back in the day but that film felt as fake ...

Re: Shrek reboot

So...what I said, then. And..."all" those Muppet movies? What, all two of them? Yep. Not counting that ABC monstrosity. Basically, think of it like when you get remarried: You might be stepdad to some kids from a previous marriage, but they still won't actually 100% be YOUR kids, unless y...

Re: Grinch 2018 First Look at Cindy Lou

(...You actually SAW "The Lorax"?? :shock: ) Why? Were we not supposed to? ;) ...Do you normally pay upwards of $10 towards things you cringe at? The Grinch does feel wholly unnecessary. I can't say I'm too jazzed to see it. The Carrey/Howard version was already enough to put me off of se...

Re: Grinch 2018 First Look at Cindy Lou

I've seen a number of billboards for The Grinch along my commute through Hollywood. All of them feature a close-up of the Grinch, along with a caption that seems wryly targeted to specific locations ... If only I actually had any desire to see the movie. :| And if only Illusion had the remotest clu...

Re: Toy Story 4

Annie Potts (Bo Peep) has also let it slip that "They threw out 3/4 of the script and completely reworked it", so looks like we're not getting "Woody loves Bo Peep", and getting something a little more in the Pixar Brain Trust tradition. https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/11/01/to...

Re: Grinch 2018 First Look at Cindy Lou

Yeah, the way Illusion's marketing was promoting "Wouldn't you love to be just like the Grinch?", and showing him as everybody's favorite party-pooping Gru from Despicable Me 3-1/2, I'm surprised Cindy Lou or the Seuss plot was still IN the movie... But this is Illusion/whatever-used-to-be...

Re: "Wreck-It Ralph"

Any chance of Disney getting Mario characters for this movie went down the toilet after Universal negotiated with Nintendo for months over getting the rights to the franchise for Illumination. Think that pretty well sums up "No"--Universal is stoking the movie-franchise fires, iron-clad C...
