Re: New Popular Film Oscar

We may love and adore all the visual spectacle of Infinity War and the like, but when Thanos snaps his fingers, do we really feel that emotional wallop one does at the end of Lion when we find out what has become of one of the main character's relatives (and, indeed, where he got his name from)? In...

Re: "Wreck-It Ralph"

So cool that Gal Gadot is joining the cast! Can’t wait to see what “Shank” is like! :). Sounds awesome!

(Although it being a racing game character, I’d love for her to have maybe played Princess Peach in Mario Kart! Lol. :P )

Re: The DOCTOR WHO Thread

These were just astonishing: I really can’t adequately describe how well-written they all were: (Virgin Dr. Who New Adventures, not to be confused with the Target novelizations which were much shorter and only based on actual televised episodes.)* https://www.ithoughtitoldyoutowaitinthecar.com/blog/...

Re: New Popular Film Oscar

Lol...yeah imagine the Oscars with no Best Animated Film! ;) I guess there’d be less “talk” every year about this animated film vs. that animated film, but hey, that way the media might have actually been comparing Inside Out with Room! Or Moana with La La Land! Imagine the possibilities! (Totally s...

New Popular Film Oscar

So interesting about the new Best Popular Film category. Shows how much the Oscars have changed over the decades. I mean back in 1986 Jeff Goldblum didn’t even get an Oscar nom for The Fly because horror movies were considered very lowbrow. It would have been like nominating Robert England for Fredd...

Re: The Simpsons

Still can’t believe they actually got away with this, for so many reasons...(Just FYI not trying to start a debate about Walt Disney being this or that...just thought it was a funny clip. :) )

Re: How our society is becoming more like the one in WALL-E

Basically a pic of the floating-chair WALL-E humans staring at individual screens without seeing the world around them; next to another pic of a real person in a comfy chair/bed looking up at a tablet affixed just above him so that he can watch whatever’s on there without any distractions. “IT’S STA...

Re: The Simpsons

Weird thinking of The Simpsons as possibly Disney characters. :shock: I mean Spider-Man or Luke Skywalker is one thing, but... (Guess Bob Iger/Disney execs never saw that Itchy and Scratchy Land episode from season 6. Lol.) Homer: But Marge, I was a political prisoner! Marge: How were you a politica...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

Should be taken with a grain of salt, but apparently there’s been strong rumors that Dark Phoenix—as well as other Fox/Marvel projects like Gambit and New Mutants—have all been effectively cancelled. According to the source, Disney wants a “clean slate” before integrating the newly-acquired characte...

Re: YouTube Goodness

Very cool montage of all three Nolan Bat-films with a voiceover of Gary Oldman’s speech from the end of DK. https://youtu.be/_qmK3lpkgVo Interesting how this video showcases all the unique angles Nolan adds to the Batman mythos while at the same time clearly displaying the utter lack of restraint wh...

Re: The NEW Muppet Movie

Great news about Fraggle Rock on Blu-Ray. That was such a wonderful show. I’m pretty sure I saw it in its first run, when it started on HBO I think. Made a huge impression on me. (Opening theme) https://youtu.be/KLQS6xo40kI I remember the cartoon coming a few years later, on NBC I think. (God it fee...

Re: The John Lasseter saga

I really don’t have much to add here, just wanted to say that, again, I’m glad that Disney did the right thing and let Lasseter go. Behavior like that, even if it’s not on the level of Weinstein or Cosby, should not be tolerated. But I also completely agree with Ben that his many contributions shoul...

OK, I’m not that crazy about this Honest Trailer for Burton’s Batman (As fun and charismatic as Caesar Romero was, I really don’t see how you could possibly say that Nicholson was simply doing an impression of him; as far as I know Romero never did any scenes roasting someone with a hand buzzer or i...
