Re: The John Lasseter saga

We only had one genuine Lasseter-led project in the first few years of Disney's 00's Renaissance, but the '11 "Winnie the Pooh" probably wouldn't have caught fire, Harry Potter or not. You’re still forgetting that Princess And The Frog was not a rescue job...that was the first "Lasse...

Oh, thanks--FIVE stalled Stainton projects that Lasseter had to salvage, silly me.

Re: The John Lasseter saga

It’s certainly a come-down for him, though, what with now working on two ex-DreamWorks directors' projects already instigated by the previous head that he’ll have to basically have minimal input over (though he’ll take Exec Prod credit as per usual), so it’ll be a while before we see any really new...

Re: The John Lasseter saga

I don't think Skydance actually has an animation studio. I believe they outsource the actual animation. Is that going to change I wonder? Seems like Lasseter is the type of guy to want that in-house. Is this the same Skydance that hired Brad Bird to direct one of their Tom Cruise Mission:Impossible...

Re: YouTube Goodness

You're welcome... (Yes, I hate Warner/DC too, but has Cartoon Network's pathological loathing of Hanna-Barbera so psychologically indoctrinated an early-00's generation to consider Aquaman a crime against humanity, by mandatory law? You've got Aquaman jokes coming from people too young to have ever...

Re: Abrams Live action remake of "Your Name"

Just got the Blu-ray, after hearing all the hype. Lord knows when I'll get around to watching it... The original? It's..... okay , but seems to have done most of its business on the fact that most adult mainstream Japanese don't want to be seen watching anime series (that's for nasty otaku , who si...

You don’t *have* to do the "because joke". In fact, I think that’s the first time I ever saw it...? :? You didn't see it back in the thread where James asked "WHYYY+21 ??+8" about Universal doing an Illumination-owned Shrek reboot? (To which the answer was also 'HOUSE FRANCHIIII...

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! It's the only major theatrically-released property the independent animation company OOOOOWWWWWNNNS!! (Which is why we also got Nut Job 2.) Also we'll also accept "LIONSGAAAAAAAATE!" as an answer, the only studio more desperate than Sony to develop a "house brand&q...

Re: Gi joe Snake eyes solo movie in the works!

Looks like someone at Paramount/Hasbro is counting all the "solo franchise spinoff" money "Bumblebee" hasn't made yet--
They're off the Transformers (and space-toys) for the moment, but there's still that Plan B of GI Joe & M.A.S.K. to try and pull Hasbro Films out of the fire.

Re: YouTube Goodness

Vi...was quite impressed how they did kind of know most of those songs, even the earliest ones; the scores didn’t always tally with what they knew even if they couldn’t name it. Kind of does show how the reissue and remake plan does make those old films new again...but I’ll bet most knew Bare Neces...

I will bet they’re hoping Aquaman will deliver THIS December. Why would they wait until next December...!? (Are these nitpicks actually funny? Because on this end, they're sort of like conversational road-bumps, like King Arthur having to listen about swallows or autonomous collectives.) :lol: Basi...
