Re: Condorito

Did. Not. See. That. Coming. I jumped in given Droo's exuberance, and was half expecting a Ratatouille/Turbo rip-off about a little bird making his mark in a different world, when the aliens arrived and everything went wacko! I actually enjoyed Storks a lot (certainly more than any of the Lego movie...

Re: DuckTales: The Movie "Widescreen" question

Is it not the Disney Exclusive disc you have?

If not, don’t worry...the later wider retail disc uses the exact same transfer. There’s only one widescreen version of DTTM out on DVD. :)

Re: DuckTales: The Movie "Widescreen" question

Okay... Firstly, DTTM wasn’t ever a bunch of episodes: it was developed and animated by a new division, Disney MovieToons, in France, intended to be the first in a series of lower budget films that would utilise the classic Disney characters and fill in the gaps between the bigger Feature Animation ...

Re: AV Readers' Choice Poll of 2017 Animated Films

Proving how memorable it was!

I do notice Rock Dog is now in the poll.Discounting Dacey's vote aside ( ;) ) I wonder if it will get any genuine (as in, no joke) votes anyway! Maybe from the director or home video distributor!?

It’s actually my bet for the outsider spot at the Oscars! ;)

Re: Disney Removes Louis C.K. from Gravity Falls

To be fair, it’s just a couple of guest spots on a couple of TV episodes, not like a major recurring character or anything. The bigger obstacle is Spacey in Bug's Life, but then again that film seems to have faded from view anyhoo. I’d expect them not to play it up too much except for when they do a...

Re: AV Readers' Choice Poll of 2017 Animated Films

Wow...so not a banner year. :(

A couple to admire, and one or two clear commercial pleasers, but nothing that has proven zeitgeisty or will probably go down as a classic in years to come.

Re: DISNEY BUYS 20TH CENTURY FOX

Well, Disney didn’t just buy Fox, and they don’t own it yet. The deal has been agreed but it’ll be six months to a year and a half before Disney owns all and starts making any changes. Besides, while I’m no fan of the Murdochs getting in at the Mouse House, I would rather Disney keep buying and expa...

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

One question...if Ben/Kylo spent all that time looking for Luke, why didn’t he just go back to the Jedi island that he had been training with him on? :roll:

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

Just wanted to point out that what I said above isn’t necessarily *bad*...! I enjoyed the film a great deal - it’s MUCH funnier than expected - but that there are a lot of odd choices in there and ultimately it left something of a sour taste in my mouth. There is, however, one truly awesome moment (...

Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

I thought the Harley movie had been recently sucked into the new Joker film, which also isn’t represented on that list...? As Dan said, "in no real particular order", which is both half the problem and shows that WB doesn’t have a firm plan, but they like to announce a whole slate when we ...
