Re: Space Jam 2

Exactly. Pepe was never held up as an example of how to treat women. He was the butt of the joke! Not just that he didn't know when to quit, but that his "pickup lines" were increasingly ridiculous: Like when the two each go sailing off a ski jump and flying through the air, Pepe catches up with Pe...

Re: Space Jam 2

Or by having him do something like hit on Lola, get beat up by her, and Lebron is like "Dude, where the heck you think you're from?" and he mutters, through pain, "a different era." Assuming the... kind of people who want to symbolically beat up on the "social implications" of movie and cartoon cha...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Added today: Squanto: A Warrior's Tale I was going to make a joke about "Well, at least they... finally got around to the fan requests for it...in April?? :? " But given the fact that 60's-90's live-action catalog doesn't show up on D+ unless it's either gotten a DMC Exclusive remastering or readie...

Re: Hanna-Barbera Studios returns!

(Metaphors don't go over Dacey's head...His reflexes are fast!) :roll:

That's not to say Warner still ISN'T trying to save their old CN brands from cultural extinction, selling the CW series along with putting Jabberjaw in a Space Jam 2 cameo.

Re: Live Action Little Nemo

And, along with the wannabe Pan's Labyrinth character, I'm guessing the character peeking out of the closet is the new PC Version of Flip, who DOESN'T look like a minstrel-show character from the original comic strip? At this point, you have to ask, why are they still even claiming it's a version of...

Re: Space Jam 2

but the singing violent rapists from A Clockwork Orange are. Okay, THIS is Warner's official cry for help. :shock: Any chance we can get a class-action lawsuit from the Anthony Burgess/Stanley Kubrick estates, along with Tolkien's, Stephen King, Bob Kane/Bill Finger's, and whoever else's cultural p...

Re: Peeps: The Movie

Oh, you don't have those over there? Over here, Peeps has been merchandising its brand name as THE "Easter candy", and March/April is "all Peeps" for product tie-ins the way October/November is Pumpkin Spice. (And just as nonsensically tied in to every imaginable product, food or otherwise.) Given t...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Will people ever learn? Will Disney ever learn that those are the exact same arguments, word for word, Warner used ten years ago to convince us that deep down we all secretly "hated" our discs, and it...didn't quite work out for them as well as they'd hoped? :lol: (Oh, wait, no, Warner also used "D...

If you were a 70's-80's kid, you watched the originals faithfully on Saturday morning, and couldn't be fooled.

You know the drill: If there's a goofy overexposed movie you're unsure might stink to high heaven...let Honest Trailers handle it, and safely get the low-lights out of the way first:

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I watched both movies (they're supposed to be connected) on a back-of-the-shelf library double-feature DVD, and...yeah, they're not prime. Like Phantom Menace, Lucas wanted "the little kid" audience, with a cute Drew Barrymore-clone 80's-tot and her hotheaded Jedi-wannabe big brother, who was droppe...

Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

Not to worry. That seems to be everyone's most hated thing about the film. Haven't watched--Is it still the "Legion of Doom" scene (mixed with Warner's stubbornness to make a Deathstroke movie once and for all), that reminds us that no DC fan ever truly got over "Challenge of the Superfriends", no ...

Re: The Twilight Zone

And "Nick of Time"'s a much better episode than the other one he's been culturally stuck with by people who don't watch the series. (Just saw a preview for Shatner doing one of those "Old-folks" comedies that Robert DeNiro or Diane Keaton usually do, only here it was Shatner and an equally old Chris...
