Didn't Droosan do some modeling on this? Yes. :) I worked mostly on the hens, the two roosters (Peck and Root), one female and one "male" cow (Bessie and Ben), as well as other background (non-speaking) critters such as goats, cats, and owls. All over a period of about 9 months. It was a ...

My best Star Wars score is 655,018 .. I must've blown up that Death Star 7 or 8 times! Those vector-laser balls will get ya in the end, though .. :lol: :P ------- Seriously, though, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK has the best themes .. (IMHO) Besides the aforementioned "Han & Leia", "Yod...

I have to agree with Sullivan -- SUPERMAN RETURNS feels like watching a 'fan-film,' what with the constant 'line-dropping' and 'homages' to Donner's films. :? All the major 'beats' of SR are equivalent to scenes from SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE. And yes, Kitty is a carbon-copy of Miss Tessmacher -- right do...

Goldblum had already been in great pictures like THE FLY, SILVERADO, and BUCKAROO BANZAI well before JURASSIC PARK. He already was a pretty well-known movie star .. though JP and INDEPENDENCE DAY gave him huge roles that turned out very well for him, no doubt. I never saw LOST WORLD, or JP3. The las...

I saw a scene from CHICKEN LITTLE on Blu-Ray (part of a 'demo disc' of upcoming titles) in a TV showroom over the weekend .. Holy cow, there were details I don't remember seeing at the theater ! :shock: .. I could see individual strands of fur on the fuzzy critters .. tiny surface scratches on Chick...

That's a shame to hear, since the 'look' of ASTERIX AND THE VIKINGS bears closer resemblance to Uderzo's lush drawing style than any of the previous ASTERIX films. Hopefully, it is at least better than the 'live-action' ASTERIX film from a few years ago .. The trailers for ASTERIX AND THE VIKINGS do...

There is some information on the english version of ASTERIX AND THE VIKINGS at Asterix New Zealand .. though, unfortunately, nothing regarding a theatrical release schedule. I'd love to be able to see this film in North American theaters .. but I suspect I will have to buy the region-2 DVD next year...

Not related to the films directly .. but I did do a 'double-take' when I saw this sign in a Toys'R'Us a few years ago:

In addition, the various television cartoon series featuring Popeye will see a DVD release, as we...

Great!! I love, love, love the Hanna-Barbera boxed sets! :) THE FLINTSTONES season 6 set is still a "go," AFAIK .. which will see the entire first series on DVD! Maybe I'm alone in this, but I wouldn't mind seeing a couple sets of THE PEBBLES AND BAMM-BAMM SHOW as a 'follow-up' .. I do hop...

Loved the aliens while I was watching, though some story points didn't make sense (they were crossing off planets they had been looking for their kid on when he was on the spaceship the whole time??) The aliens weren't searching for their kid when they first landed; they were searching for acorns ....

I answered you in a PM, Meg .. I didn't want to hi-jack this thread any further. :P ---------------- A much -underrated anime film from the 1990's is CATNAPPED! ( aka CATLAND BANIPAL WITT). If you're a fan of Ghibli/Miyazaki films or the charming Studio Toei animated features of the 1960's, I highly...

Yes, very mean-spirited stuff; reminds me why I stopped posting at JHM a couple years ago. :? Personally, I can find something to like about all the Don Bluth films I've seen .. even if it's just within a sequence, or a particular character bit, or whatever. I've never worked for him, but I've worke...

A BUG'S LIFE is still my favorite of John Lasseter's movies; at least, it's the one I watch most often. :) FERN GULLY, ROCK-A-DOODLE, ROVER DANGERFIELD, and SWAN PRINCESS are films I've yet to see .. though one day I intend to check 'em out! I did see THUMBELINA in its theatrical release .. and whil...

I took the fancy glowy effects which exited Wallace's body after he transformed back to a human to mean that the 'bunny brain-waves' had left Wallace for good (these were the same 'brain-wave effects' noted by Gromit at the time of the Bun-Vac/Mind-O-Matic accident). Of course, since we never see th...
