Re: Disney's Raya And The Last Dragon

Raya and the Last Dragon review up! https://animatedviews.com/2021/raya-and-the-last-dragon-film/ Long story short: so much wasted potential. I can completely imagine higher-ups at Disney having a similar conversation as The Itchy & Scratchy producers! “Today’s girls want a princess with attitude. ...

Re: Space Jam 2

We were going to get just as many cheap deconstructionist jokes in a proposed CGI-hybrid Pepe LePew movie a few years back, but A) Yogi Bear eventually killed the trend at Warner overnight, and B) Director Max Landis was reportedly a little too life-imitates-art on the set. Still listed as in limbo,...

Re: Space Jam 2

I mean, they wouldn't be making Space Jam 2 if there weren't people who liked the first one... ...OH, YOU POOR SWEET SUMMER CHILD!!!! :lol: Of course not, Warner would never be that desperate to flog the one association they think they can still make with their Looney franchise, in the starving sea...

Re: Disney's Raya And The Last Dragon

No, that was referring to the "Mean establishment people are picking on the poor, innocent misunderstood OUTCASTS!" Katzenberg-era bully-persecution-complex plots of post-Renaissance 90's Disney, which teetered off a cliff in Pocahontas, and plummeted rapidly toward melodramatic soapbox kitsch in th...

Re: Godzilla vs. Kong

Believe me, the second movie will clinch the decision. Saw that one in theaters, lord help me. -_-

Re: Space Jam 2

Chuck Jones named it Gossamer. Good enough for me. I don't consider "Duck Dodgers & the Return of the 24th-1/2th Century" good enough for anyone , but I'm not sure if I'm alone on that. :? If you consider post-retirement Chuck and his sudden 80's-00's burst of self-referencing narcissism, to be "re...

Re: Disney's Raya And The Last Dragon

I have no idea what Hunchback or Lilo have to do with it :? , but to graciously answer your question, no: I have never, ever, ever, EVER entertained the ideas that Hunchback, Lilo and Frozen were not bad movies. I can't recall a single instance of that occurring since leaving the theaters. :lol: (Oo...

Re: Disney's Raya And The Last Dragon

Well, yes. (Oh, wait, "Cars 2", so this is a bad thing, right?)

But since we're talking about the movies Lee is studio-mogul producing, Lasseter's would be more like Bolt, Tangled and Meet the Robinsons.

Re: Disney's Raya And The Last Dragon

Well, the jury of the future is still weighing in on how well the Nature-Goddess Elsa movie (another symptom of the same disease) outlives its Record-Breaking Front-Loaded Opening, but I won't begrudge. Wasn't a bad movie, and if "Asian Moana With a Plot" also seems to be getting a current surfeit o...

What was the other, the WandaVision finale, the Mandalorian premiere, or Hamilton? :roll:

Now to see if Raya proves leggy.
Or whether Disney's new heroines-over-plot empowerment push gives its movies the same lack of longterm shelf-life as Moana.

Sure, pal. Just like the big red monster with the sneakers is named "Gossamer".
Whatever Warner says. :lol:

Re: Space Jam 2

But, hey-ho, like I said, I’m not actually "against" it, either way. To be honest I never really noticed Lola that much: she was never as attractive as when Bugs Bunny put on a dress and played a girl bunny... ;) On appearance, I'd put her on par with Bugs as a Daisy-Mae in "Hillbilly Hare", but fo...

Re: Space Jam 2

Causing every online telephone-gamer who read only half the story to think one editorial is now "legislation", and that "Warner is CANCELLING Pepe!"

UWN. (Uh, What? No.) :roll:

Re: Demon Slayer The Movie Hit At Overseas Box Office!

Completely off-topic, but as long as we're discussing anime features: Thanks to their connections with whatever Discotek digs up out of the archive for Blu-ray, Crunchyroll's streaming site just added dubs and subs of the five Urusei Yatsura movies (fans don't count the wretched "sixth" one), free-w...
