Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

Why, when I read "old, biased DC fanboy", did I hear Gene Hackman...? ;)

Re: 2017 Best Animated Feature

Of course, since it's Pixar! ;) Surely it's gotta be Cars 3, though, right? ;) ;) I'm glad to see a the very sweet, charming and touching Ethel & Ernest in there, though, and would hope to see Loving Vincent in the shortlist just because of its extraordinary production techniques. Personally, I ...

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

Um...I don't think so. Ford isn't in this one for one thing, and Solo's Game as a script title would have come well after Ender was done and on home video. The feeling I got from it was that it was more of a Ripley's Game approach anyway, but the title wold have been picked after Ender. The choice t...

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

Nope, but it's close. I don't know when it changed, or if the one I heard was the original script title, if it was the previous directors' name, or if it was being discussed when Howard came in, but I think it was a slightly better title. Solo's Game: A Star Wars Story. I guess I can post that now t...

Re: Upcoming animated films calendar and date changes

I'm up for another Trolls. With our new home theater up and runnng, we've started going back over the last few years of animated films I've bought but never watched, last night's being Penguins Of Madagascar. Yeah, it was a slice of fun, but not anything DWA needs to make another sequel to. When wil...

Re: The Star

Ouch.

Even the Henson Co, which initiated this project, doesn't bother to have its logo on the front. And I love how Sony's back credit contribution is limited to Cloudy, possibly as a way to offer some kind of explanation for the cartoony visuals.

As said before...just poor. :(

Re: Sing

Ah...what was the title that you didn't read the review on because you wanted to see it? Thought it was that one (or some others)? I just thought it was amusing that (most) people all found it to be the same: something quite lovely and brilliant but that was totally unexpected from how how it was ma...

Re: Upcoming animated films calendar and date changes

Maybe they should just release Peter on that date and let it die a quick and painless death, or just not release it at all? ;)

Re: The Lego Ninjago Movie

Doesn't look like this new Ninjago (awkward word!) Movie is going to change my mind about the franchise in general, going by James' review. Perhaps the inevitable case of saturation and diminishing returns will wake WB up to the fact that they need a proper animation unit capable of more than just m...

Re: Upcoming animated films calendar and date changes

If it was anywhere near ready for its release date then it would have been in animation by now, most likely with the Ferdinand team. My guess is that it's either been recorded but continues to be rejigged (hence being pushed once already) or that it's privately never got past the story reels and the...

Re: Peter Rabbit (2018)

I think the estate of Beatrix Potter has made it clear that they don't care about the quality of her legacy with that awful Nickelodeon series they licensed a while back. At least Peter is actually English this time, even if it is bland man-of-the-moment and zero-nuance voice "talent" Cord...
