Re: Oscar Contest 2019 - 15th Anniversary!

You need to see Judy Garland and James Mason, Dacey. Like, desperately. :)

Re: Disney's Frozen

Anna could still get her fire powers (or, at least, control over the wind, er, or something like that? Anyone else think that leaf was going to rest in the middle of the O in the title? Might’ve been cool if it turns out to be a plot point). They have to keep SOMEthing back for surprises!

Trolls was a fun surprise. I’ll catch Lego 2 down the line sometime.

Re: Disney's Frozen

Was it me or did they have her running into the ocean at least one or two too many times. It got repetitive and verged on boring, without her really developing in those moments.

I know this is, but I hope it doesn’t come over as a cash-grab.

Re: New Popular Film Oscar

Just a heads up that if cutting 4 awards from the show sticks, they will alternate every year. So 4 different awards would be cut next year. Yeah, this was the excuse, er, explanation back when this awful idea was first broached. BUT... Personally, I can’t wait for the year when Best Actor, Best Ac...

Re: New Popular Film Oscar

As an editor myself, I’m appalled. The two most important people to a director on a movie are the cinematographer during production and the editor in post. And they cut BOTH those awards...!!?? Basically, nothing should be cut, except for any comedy bits that use up the time these awards could be gi...

Re: Into the Spider-Verse

Just won the BAFTA on top of everything else. I’d say it was a shoo-in for the Oscars now, if it wasn’t already. I’ve even got the disc ordered too, and can’t wait to see it (we’re running I2 next week, but as excited as I am to see that, I’m more pumped to se Spidey-Verse overall). Sony was always ...

Re: The John Lasseter saga

We only had one genuine Lasseter-led project in the first few years of Disney's 00's Renaissance, but the '11 "Winnie the Pooh" probably wouldn't have caught fire, Harry Potter or not. You’re still forgetting that Princess And The Frog was not a rescue job...that was the first "Lasse...

Re: The John Lasseter saga

No, it’s the same Skydance that sometimes co-finances Paramount's slate, including the last two Missions, but they are basically a silent funding partner: any director and casting choices are made by producer Tom Cruise on those films. The relatively new Skydance Animation is a self-funded, independ...

Re: YouTube Goodness

Actually, it was marketed long before that. 16mm and, more generally, 8mm film print collecting was alive and well in the late 60s and boom days of the 1970s, when screen sizes could easily be 8' or more and stereophonic sound (and even 'Scope anamorphic lenses!) was available to those with the real...

Re: Abrams Live action remake of "Your Name"

Saw this a couple of years ago...the only way I can see it working for broad American audiences is to make it a sci-fi comedy, which would kind of kill what worked about it...

Re: Disney Movie Rewards

Yeah, I’ve been checking back each day and adding the new codes without any problems, usually at five points each. Didn’t get the roundup DMR email yet though. Note that as of last night you could still redeem some Crimbo discs for half points. Not much there, but if you feel a need to get the Zemec...
