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:

Home Video will be releasing all 231 POPEYE theatrical shorts (from both the Fleischer and Famous Studios) on DVD, starting next year! 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...

BALTO was actually quite good. :) THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER holds up as the 'anti-formula' Disney movie; an action-adventure with no songs or goofy sidekicks, despite being made during Disney's 'Broadway' era .. And I definitely agree with the earlier mentions of CATS DON'T DANCE, THE IRON GIANT, and ...

No QUICKDRAW McGRAW or WALLY GATOR on DVD..? :-(

.. bummer :( I've really enjoyed the Hanna-Barbera Golden Collection thus far; especially the recent HUCKLEBERRY HOUND and YOGI BEAR collections .. I was looking forward to QUICKDRAW, since he's one of my favorite characters. Here's hoping THE FLINTSTONES season sets will continue, at least. I'd als...

I highly recommend Randy Newman's score for THE NATURAL. That was the first time I'd ever seen a movie, then proceeded directly to a record store to buy the soundtrack. :) I do consider Newman's Pixar scores to be a bit better than his songs (I've never been able to listen to that MONSTERS, INC song...

DIE HARD. :lol: (j/k) -------------- RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, and THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS are my favorites, as animation goes. A film that has 'grown' on me the last couple years, though, is LOVE ACTUALLY. Definitely feels like it could be a 'perennial' class...

another 1990's Mickey film ..

There was also a Mickey Mouse 'featurette' titled THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER, released in 1990. It has the distinction of being the last Mickey Mouse cartoon to be fully produced in the Burbank studio .. RUNAWAY BRAIN was produced mostly at the Paris studio, while THE THREE MUSKETEERS was made mainly...
