Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

This sounds like a lot of bull. From the way Daniel 's linked story is worded (especially with Disney's decline to comment on it), it could also be a 'trial balloon' by Disney+ to gauge whether there'd be any public pushback to selective censorship of its offerings. If there is sufficient outcry, t...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Yeah; I'm just gonna hold on to my massive DVD & Blu-ray collection, Disney (which already constitutes a healthy percentage of what I'd probably wanna watch on the Disney+ service, anyway). I've no intention of rewarding this type of corporate behavior with a recurring subscription. :| I had wondere...

Re: Forum Update 2019

I'm still seeing some spam posts, FWIW (but they always seem to get deleted, pretty quickly). I just posted in the Missing Link thread, and used the 'hide' feature to keep some spoiler details hidden from view. However (at least on my end), clicking the "click to reveal content" text does not seem t...

Re: Missing Link, Laika's new adventure

Nearly all of the movie theater chains in the Los Angeles area switched to a 'reserve your own seat in advance' business model, about a year ago .. and it kinda killed the spontaneity of heading out for a night at the movies, for me. :roll: I did want to see Missing Link , though .. and finally took...

Re: Into the Spider-Verse

And this is the most progressive (art-wise) major animated film of the year! And, overall, the best. I will gag if Incredibles 2 wins. I was pretty darn impressed by the art style & innovative storytelling of the GKIDS anime release M*F*K*Z , which was in theaters about a month before Into the Spid...

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

I've never understood the appeal of these, either. :| To this day, the only one I've seen was Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland (which itself really came across as more of a live-action 'sequel' to the original story). As Ben has said elsewhere , these live-action adaptations seem to function more as...

Re: Wreck-It Ralph 2

Good review. I enjoyed Ralph Breaks the Internet well enough, but the initial excitement that my three very favorite characters from the first film -- Fix-It Felix, Sergeant Calhoun and Taffyta Muttonfudge -- were squeezed into a sub-plot together was dimmed by the fact that they were then not seen ...

Coming on December 11th; just in time for Christmas! :D And , the cartoons will be available on either DVD or Blu-ray (as separate...

Re: Grinch 2018 First Look at Cindy Lou

I've seen a number of billboards for The Grinch along my commute through Hollywood. All of them feature a close-up of the Grinch, along with a caption that seems wryly targeted to specific locations ... On a congested stretch of Fairfax Avenue: (Grinch with fiendish grin) "I could watch you crawl th...

super short, but very nicely-done. :lol:

Re: Laika

I got to meet Mr. Vinton briefly, at an animation festival in Hollywood in the early-2000s. Even at that time -- pretty much immediately after being pushed out of the studio he'd founded -- he came across as an affable and cheerful person, with a passion for animated films (of all types) and a posit...
