Re: New Disney Streaming Service (Disney Play)

God, I sure hope so. If we even get a facsimile of what the Disney Channel was like in the 80’s I’d definitely be on board. :). However, I can’t help but have doubts since so much of Classic Dis has been practically “missing” from the company’s offerings for a very long time now. I guess the excepti...

Re: Back to the Future

Yeah, you’re so right Ben, he was most definitely, as you said, “a major jerk.” :? Marty Mcfly would never have given him the time of day. “You think I’m stupid enough to talk to that *******?” Lol. Also, here’s a quite interesting short interview with Crispin Glover from 2014. He basically discusse...

New Disney Streaming Service (Disney Play)

Will be made available at the end of 2019. Supposedly will be cheaper than the base price of Netflix, although no number has been announced as of yet. Here’s some more details: http://fortune.com/2018/08/27/disney-streaming-service-netflix-2/ My thoughts: Rip off, rip off, and more rip off. I don’t ...

Re: Back to the Future

Ok, I realize I am wayyyyyyyyyyy late here, but I finally got around to at least starting to watch the Netflix doc “Back in Time.” I had to stop it after 15 minutes. I’ll definitely get back to watching it soon, but something someone who is supposedly some kind of authority on film said was so jaw-d...

Re: New Popular Film Oscar

We may love and adore all the visual spectacle of Infinity War and the like, but when Thanos snaps his fingers, do we really feel that emotional wallop one does at the end of Lion when we find out what has become of one of the main character's relatives (and, indeed, where he got his name from)? In...

Re: "Wreck-It Ralph"

So cool that Gal Gadot is joining the cast! Can’t wait to see what “Shank” is like! :). Sounds awesome!

(Although it being a racing game character, I’d love for her to have maybe played Princess Peach in Mario Kart! Lol. :P )

Re: The DOCTOR WHO Thread

These were just astonishing: I really can’t adequately describe how well-written they all were: (Virgin Dr. Who New Adventures, not to be confused with the Target novelizations which were much shorter and only based on actual televised episodes.)* https://www.ithoughtitoldyoutowaitinthecar.com/blog/...

Re: New Popular Film Oscar

Lol...yeah imagine the Oscars with no Best Animated Film! ;) I guess there’d be less “talk” every year about this animated film vs. that animated film, but hey, that way the media might have actually been comparing Inside Out with Room! Or Moana with La La Land! Imagine the possibilities! (Totally s...

New Popular Film Oscar

So interesting about the new Best Popular Film category. Shows how much the Oscars have changed over the decades. I mean back in 1986 Jeff Goldblum didn’t even get an Oscar nom for The Fly because horror movies were considered very lowbrow. It would have been like nominating Robert England for Fredd...

Re: The Simpsons

Still can’t believe they actually got away with this, for so many reasons...(Just FYI not trying to start a debate about Walt Disney being this or that...just thought it was a funny clip. :) )

Re: How our society is becoming more like the one in WALL-E

Basically a pic of the floating-chair WALL-E humans staring at individual screens without seeing the world around them; next to another pic of a real person in a comfy chair/bed looking up at a tablet affixed just above him so that he can watch whatever’s on there without any distractions. “IT’S STA...

Weird thinking of The Simpsons as possibly Disney characters. :shock: I mean Spider-Man or Luke Skywalker is one thing, but...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

Should be taken with a grain of salt, but apparently there’s been strong rumors that Dark Phoenix—as well as other Fox/Marvel projects like Gambit and New Mutants—have all been effectively cancelled. According to the source, Disney wants a “clean slate” before integrating the newly-acquired characte...
