Re: Enchanted

So based on those photos. I'm gonna going out on a limb and say the story will involve around people from Andalasia (that's the animated world right?) crossing over into our world and causing chaos. Yep, we were already a long way from the Eisner-era "Punish stupid princesses, and make them marry a...

Re: Disney's Christopher Robin

So, Disney doesn't have a lock on animated Pooh anymore? Or did it expire after the '11 movie?

Re: Live Action Little Nemo

I remember, back in the 80's silver-ball "educational" days of Nickelodeon, their old "Lights, Camera, Action!" series would run behind-the-scenes making-of featurettes (until those started to dry up in the cineplex era, and seemed like they showed the one from "The Keep" twice a month)-- One of the...

Re: SPIDEY 4 becomes AMAZING becomes Marvel's SPIDER-MAN

(Uh, Michael Keaton is supposed to be cleaning up salvaged alien technology from the NYC Avengers/Endgame battles, and that's the "new" MCU reason why he calls himself the Vulture. Good luck writing that into the Garfield-verse, Sony, but how....oh, never mind, it's Sony, they're gonna bluff their w...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Fortuosity and Let's Have a Drink on It are two great Disney songs from the 60's/70's Shermans, and the fact that they're at the beginning and end of the movie let you skip most of the dire middle. I tried watching the Roadshow version, and counting the minutes of actual dialogue between Sherman num...

Ooh, I kinda like it that the Venoms take place in the Garfield-verse, but how does that explain the Keaton cameo...!?
Where he's using technology taken from the Whedon-verse, and retcon-naming himself after that?

Re: Is the future of animation hopeless?

Sad to say, but it's time to finally get out of the 00's. (You remember, when the wave of 90's Disney-renaissance Wannabes became the cable-network Rugrats Bubble, and when that imploded, nobody knew why Shrek was suddenly so popular?) DreamWorks "made it look so easy" for pumping out sitcom-CGI, be...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

Still tremendous underwhelmed for this. It’s all too Salt and Red Sparrow-ish, Yeah, Red Sparrow didn't sound ANYTHING like "Black Widow", did it? Good thing they avoided confusion by using the exact same "ballet school" cover story for the KGB assassin program! (If more people had read actual Marv...

Re: Krypto and the superpets (legion of superpets) Teaser.

So, is this an extension of that Cartoon Network kiddie series, or is it Warner, trying to attach DC to every marketable demographic, trying to get a piece of Secret Life of Pets?

Re: Pixar's Luca

DreamWorks is still around, Eric. Nice try, though. Leaving aside the re-animated zombie corpse of "Croods: a New Age", now that Katzenberg's evil spirit no longer gives it life... :lol: (Nice neurotically obsessive nitpicking, though.) In Luca, we've got "Setting", and we've got "Gag plot", but I'...

Re: Pixar's Luca

At least the ads are giving more of an idea of the plot (Pixar remains closed-mouth in their marketing, even though DreamWorks is no more).
Although said plot they're showing seems to be "The Shape of Water meets Ranma 1/2".

(Or "Splash meets Cinema Paradiso", I dunno...)

Re: Peter Rabbit 2 Trailer

Again, we’ve been here before with the "only on theatres' blurb that used to grace any family film trailer. Time was, as is again, that they *are* only in theatres...until the inevitable home vid and steaming release. The 90's "Only in theaters" was because the family-film market was so dominated b...
