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 cra...

Re: YouTube Goodness

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



(there's also a fun sting, after the breakdown of the animation passes)

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...

A Wizard's Tale (Here Comes The Grump)

This may be a 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' theatrical release .. but A Wizard's Tale is opening in the US on September 14th (a little over a week from now). Apparently, it will also be available for VOD streaming on the same date. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RmkGNe1cXc This is a remake/adaptation...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service (Disney Play)

It may just be childhood nostalgia, on my part .. but I've always preferred " Walt Disney Productions ". ----------------------- 1980s-era Disney Channel was incredible .. and well-worth paying for. I don't currently subscribe to any streaming services .. but might consider Disney's, if th...

Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

I still think Shazam! looks like fun, and was careful to state that its ' Big with a superhero' tone seems 'appropriate' to the source material (as opposed to 'faithful' to the source material). Various creators have written differing 'takes' over the years, anyway .. some (like Jeff Smith) treat Ca...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Super-Secret Secret Squirrel was actually pretty cool; a worthy follow-up to the original TV series, IMO. The main difference being that all of the characters are animals .. and the addition of the 'Agent 99-esque' character, Penny. 2 Stupid Dogs is just dumb fun. :) Though, it could be 'repetitive...
