Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

:shock: I .. did not know this.

But after a quick dash to eBay, I have one on its way to me, now. :mrgreen:

Thanks, gaastra!

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

One thing I really like is, even when I have something on DVD already, so much of what's on D+ is in HD (or even 4K). While I'd still be tempted on a nice Shaggy Dog Blu-ray, I can be quite satisfied with seeing That Darn Cat (either version) in HD on D+. I just watched The Black Hole in HD, on my ...

Re: Snip - Animated Short Film

It's a fun little piece. :)

I'd thought, at first, that some foley/sound effects might've been nice .. but IMO, it does rather work as (essentially) a 'silent' film.

Thanks for sharing it here! :mrgreen:

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I set up my 'free' Disney+ account via Verizon .. and was pleasantly surprised to discover that I can access it from my desktop/laptop, in addition to my phone. I had been under the impression that I'd be restricted to streaming via my 'Verizon account' devices only -- now I know I can use my 55" LE...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I'm one of the lucky (?) Verizon customers who will have access to Disney+ for 'free', via an unlimited data plan (which is mostly used by my younger brother -- but which I pay for, and share) .. however, I'm in no hurry to check it out. :| I've no doubt the service will have 'growing pains' .. part...

Re: Soul

Storytelling, in terms of how these characters are not just walking/standing/sitting .. but doing so with purpose; that you can surmise what they are thinking/feeling, even in just those brief moments. Also in terms of their environment: little hints of the personality(ies) who inhabit these rooms, ...

Re: Soul

The 'funny cowboy dance' gag is okay ; it just doesn't really gel with the tone of the rest of this teaser .. there's so much storytelling in those brief snippets we see of the policeman, the doctor, the tailor, the barber .. wow. :o This is the first Pixar teaser to bring a tear to my eye, because ...

Re: Criterion Collection

(Even though our B&N...no longer has a Blu/DVD section, after converting it to a boardgames/Funko cult-collectible section. :evil: ) The Barnes & Noble in Burbank has never had a DVD section (it's crammed into a smaller retail space than most B&Ns). They do manage to fit a 'boardgames & collectible...

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

I'm among the very few who actually enjoyed The Last Jedi a tiny bit more than The Force Awakens , and thought the Solo movie was just fine (and I'd love to see a follow-up 'solo' Lando film). However, I've learned that these are rather unpopular opinions which invite criticism of my cinematic taste...

Re: Missing Link, Laika's new adventure

I'm glad to hear your family enjoyed Missing Link . I certainly did, when I saw it in theaters (twice, thankfully!) .. though, I only got around to buying the Blu-ray just yesterday. :arrow: Out of curiosity, I just clicked the 'quote' button for my earlier post, in this thread .. and discovered tha...

Re: Disney’s Jungle Cruise

There's still some theme park IP left to mine, for movie adaptations. Perhaps .. Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room , starring Mena Massoud Disney's Golden Horseshoe Revue , starring Zendaya Disney's Monorail: The Movie , with an all-star cast of dozens Maybe they'll even make a movie based on Splash Moun...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

(Although, with Disney airing Fox Family Films now, will this make the "Disney's Anastasia & Ferngully" confusion even worse? It was already annoying enough with the 90's VHS generation.) Oh, how Don Bluth must love the irony... . Yep; Disney now owns not just one, but two Don Bluth films: Anastasi...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

Sorta off-topic, since I realize this wasn't an official MCU release .. but if there are any fans of the 1986 Howard the Duck movie (or fans of John Barry, or Thomas Dolby) reading this, you may be interested to know that Intrada is releasing a newly-remastered and expanded 3-CD Howard The Duck soun...
