Re: Disney's Encanto!

Just to be clear, I don't really have a problem with LMM getting work etc. I quite enjoy his output, it's just the marketing of the films I guess that pushes the thought of 'I want an Oscar' to the front for me. Again not LMM's fault or decision. And I understand why marketing would be using his nam...

Re: Disney's Encanto!

Is it terrible that my initial thought for why this movie exists is that Lim-Manuel Miranda is desperate for his own Oscar. I feel some circles thought he would ride the Hamilton coat train to an Oscar with Moana and when that didn't happen it feels like he is everywhere, especially this year. In Th...

Re: Pixar's Luca

re: Accents. As much as I adore Beauty and the Beast it will forever be odd that Lumiere and the Feather Duster have a French accent and no one else does. So it's the same issue that Luca has, either all locals should have some form of accent relevant to the country it is set in, or no one does. Alt...

Re: Disney’s Jungle Cruise

I get very strong The Mummy (Fraser version) vibes with Jungle Cruise. And I am loving it. Loving the humour not only in the movie but also with the promotion. I'm definitely heading out to the cinema to see this (assuming Australia isn't in total lockdown by the end of the month)

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

You’ll be somewhat pleased to know that I recorded Love, Simon last night, as I saw it playing on our Film 4 channel here. Not sure when I watch, but I thought I’d catch it to see what the fuss was about. Hope it’s not as bad/hilariously bad as The Fault In Our Stars or as tedious and pretentious a...

Got your wish, Bill. ;)

Re: Jurassic World

Hold up? I need a prologue to learn how mosquitoes feed? And it was only ONE mosquito? I'll wait until it appears online cause considering I've never seen a single F&F movie, I don't know why I would start now. And please pray to whatever higher deity it require that the 7 new species are actual spe...

Re: Disney's Frozen

I remember walking out of the original Frozen thinking 'Finally a return to a true musical' and telling everybody to see it. Even if on reflection I don't think the movie has really held up that well as a musical compared to something like Beauty & The Beast (i.e. remove the songs and the plot still...

Re: Pixar's Luca

I watched Luca last night. Probably the first time I have watched a Pixar movie on the first day of its release and therefore was not spoiled on any aspect of the story. I felt the movie started a little bit slow and I was bracing myself for a male version of The Little Mermaid but thankfully that c...

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. And a part of me hopes all those people in fancy dress keep the face masks in the movie cause I just ...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Love, Simon - great movie. Totally agree, might sit down over the weekend and watch it. I never tire of it. Although I am a bit annoyed that Disney couldn't be bothered to drop at least the first episode of Love, Victor's second season for us non-Americans on Star. Not asking for the entire season ...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

Well that trailer has made me a little bit more interested in seeing the movie. In general, these types of movies (spys, assassins) don't really appeal to me but I know I will till check it out as it's MCU. Plus I have a bunch of movie gift vouchers to use so might as well pop into the cinema to see...

Re: The Black Cauldron

I will definitely be watching that video. Just maybe not this weekend, damn you work related boring stuff. But next weekend there is a long weekend so surely I will have a spare 40 minutes to chill and enjoy. Thanks for sharing Daniel
