Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

Oh, I found the epilogue "fine" too. It just doesn’t really belong on the end of this film!

Re: Enchanted

Enchanted was Disney's knee-jerk reaction to Shrek. As I’ve said urned out very well because it came from a place of understanding of the legacy and not just from a sniping point. Do try to keep up. And bringing Princess Tiana "back" still doesn’t make sense. How can you bring Princess Tiana "back" ...

Re: What happened with Crest Animation?

A&O and sequels also went to Splash. There is no mystery. A bunch of flops put Crest out of business and, as happens so often when films are in active production, someone else picked them up to finish them. There’s enough money in these kinds of things on home video to make a series of films viable…...

Re: J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek"

Don’t you hate, though, when a belated sequel or prequel undoes everything that was inherent about an original? I mean, why did Picard triumph over the Borg all those times if he was gone to end up the way he does in the new show? Doesn’t that poo-poo over the reason we love TNG in the first place? ...

Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

"Snyder's Justice League. Better than the 1970s TV versions of Hulk, Wonder Woman and Spider-Man"…! ;) I am glad to hear you say that the film is better without the epilogue, though. I became tempted on the Korean set that you sent me the link for, but lost that whole morning down a rabbit hole look...

Re: Oral history of Emperor’s New Groove!

If we want to continue that "mirroring" of classic Walt era films with the Renaissance period, The Emperor's New Groove is Alice In Wonderland. :)

Re: Enchanted

It’s okay, Vi. You can say heck! ;) I for one felt Enchanted was Disney actually *owning* that whole Shrek satirical edge, and doing it smartly, spoofing the genre as Shrek and its like did, but doing it from the inside and with real heart, and thus making it more authentic. The thing that always st...

Re: What happened with Crest Animation?

Because DreamWorks, financially tight or not, was always bankrolled. A much more independent studio like Crest literally is using the money it has in a drawer to keep day to day operations going, *especially* during financial strife. At that point there is no-one even around getting paid to make tho...

Animated Views. Fact-checking Eric Janssen's posts since 2007! ;)

Somewhat outrageously, I seem to have written that reply on the very day Eric joined the Forum and started posting here… :shock:
