Re: Avengers and the MCU

Those tweets are such old news. Disney/Marvel knew what they were getting with Gunn. I kind of understand their decision, given how they canned Roseanne, and maybe don't want to look two-faced, but... I wish they'd kept Gunn, who has acknowledged and apologized for the remarks made a while ago.

Re: Criterion Collection

TT has several Sony/Columbia titles coming out now and in the near future: Genghis Khan, New Centurians, Auto Focus... Naturally, the original list they were working from will have a dwindling number of titles, but they're still in the Sony business. TT has said, though, that they will do no more re...

Re: Criterion Collection

Still.. I might be tempted to pick up PB anyhow, as it does look like a nice edition. But the real prize of that month is Ashby's Shampoo, which I've been curious to see for a while. I just picked up the Arrow edition of Sisters, but might be tempted by Criterion's alternate bonus features. Though, ...

Re: Criterion Collection

PB has been re-released so often, with the same plentiful bonus features all the time, that I can't believe that Criterion is bothering with it. It's a head-scratcher. I guess fans will enjoy seeing it get the CC treatment, but it's really not necessary. There's only access to public domain or MGM/U...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Supergirl in HD is a must for this super-fan. I'm looking forward to what else gets revealed at the Comic-Con panel this year, as they're promising more "genre" stuff.

Re: The John Lasseter saga

Even aside from the allegations, it might be good that JL moves on at this point. Keep things fresh. Pixar and Disney have lots of good people to take over. Fresh visions are good--- we don't need a Cars 4 anyway. ;)

Re: The John Lasseter saga

"Hate?" Well, repulsed maybe. The dude behaved badly, by the sound of things (way past the notion of being "just a big kid;" I'd come down hard on my kid if he was that disrespectful towards women). Unfortunately, there's a lot of that going around, and those players are paying t...

Re: The John Lasseter saga

The "shots" at the Pixar films were fair. They were intended to illuminate how women were treated or ignored in Pixar's output. She didn't pan the films, she only pointed out how the masculine POV showed itself in the Pixar films. And though she did not drive the point home, it's notable t...

The John Lasseter saga

It seemed appropriate to create a thread for this subject, to keep from sullying other threads. So, here's a nasty look behind the scenes from someone brave enough to pen an insider's article: https://byrslf.co/pixars-sexist-boys-club-9d621567fdc9 Or, summarized here: https://www.cartoonbrew.com/art...

Re: Legend of the Three Caballeros Cartoon coming soon!

As this was stealthily produced a while ago, and they apparently only have 13 episodes, I'd say that syndication is unlikely. This will likely stick to streaming, or maybe show up on DVD.

The scoop:

I figured maybe this was airing first in Latin America, but nope. It's only in The Philippines! And yes, it's on a streaming app, Disneylife.

Re: Legend of the Three Caballeros Cartoon coming soon!

My son and I watched the first couple eps on YouTube last night. Pretty good. Nice use of the characters. It has potential for sure.

Re: YouTube Goodness

That is one of the greatest things I've ever seen.

Okay, that's maybe an exaggeration. But it's pretty cool.

I love the mixing of eras, and Man-Bat's wings are nicely realized.

Re: Legend of the Three Caballeros Cartoon coming soon!

:shock:

Hey, I like it! Mucho likey!


I'm a BIG fan of these characters, and of course Carl Barks. (The 3 Cabs sequels that Don Rosa did in the comics are wonderful, too.) Yes, this may be held back for the proposed streaming service, which I can only hope will be available in Canada.

Re: Marvel teases power Pack Movie!

Well, in terms of concept, Power Pack is only siblings, with no parents. I would think that would differentiate it well enough. After all, there are tons of adult heroes already, and Incredibles has a full family unit, so kids-only heroes should stand out. Tone could be an issue, though--- tough to ...
