Re: X-Men Movies Thread

Well by no means do I accept that in terms of Marvel. Feige has everything mapped out and knows the direction of the MCU for the next decade, no matter what marketing will have us believe for Endgame. It’s Star Wars that had no plan after ripping up the Lucas playboook and...um...not replacing it wi...

Re: YouTube Goodness

Almost as scary as the film (and its weird remake!) is the fact you brought this up just as one of our movie nights this week is...Psycho! The original, natch.

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

You know...Apocalypse really didn’t do the series any favors. It’s a shame this didn’t happen in its place and maybe finish that run off properly. (Then again, I’m pleased with Logan basically ending the original line, frankly. The closer the First Class cast came to catching the OT cast up the less...

Re: Article on all the Disney live action remakes of animated classics

I think the thing with Beauty was that it was quaint enough to see a "cartoon come to life" on stage back then, but by the time of Lion King they knew they couldn’t just replicate the movie every time. I’ve seen LK on Broadway, Rand, but am eager to see what the London version is like. Or ...

I actually love how every single Tim Burton movie has Michael Keaton in it.

Re: Article on all the Disney live action remakes of animated classics

Said it before and will say it again... These remakes are the modern equivalent of the old reissue scheme. It’s as simple as that. When was the last time Dumbo got any love? This spring and summer he’ll be everywhere...he’ll be the big gift at Christmas, and a major part of why people will pick up a...

Re: Disney's Christopher Robin

We loved this at our screening last Friday evening, it was sweet as Pooh's Hunny! Such a shame they didn’t get behind this more as it was so much better than A Wrinkle In Time, or other "lesser A pictures". Indeed, I just saw Wrinkle, too, and couldn’t believe how amateur it felt as a movi...

Re: Scooby-Doo! Theatrical animated movie just announced

What’s nmost bizarre is that he was already in the previous live action films and was well known outside of those already! It’s not like he was "just" the character's current voice...he had a career before Shaggy. It’s just plain that they want newer, bigger "names" on a poster r...

Re: Scooby-Doo! Theatrical animated movie just announced

I have next to zero interest in this other than a passing curiosity if the trailers look okay, but this whole voice cast issue really sucks! Reminds me of the Yogi movie where Aykroyd and Timberlake had to be in there even tho all they did was not-bad-but-not-great impersonations. And not to tell th...

Re: Gremlins Cartoon series coming for WB's Streaming service

Sony actually has a bunch of franchises that I don’t think it really even knows it has! Outside of GB, the early-mid 80s were good to them in setting up a number of titles that could be mined with franchise potential. With Spidey currently going great guns and MIB:I coming this summer, they’re actua...

Re: Gremlins Cartoon series coming for WB's Streaming service

Of course, if Ghostbusters III is a hit (and a big one) then we’ll also get that "proper" Gremlins threequel movie too.
