Re: Live action Tom and Jerry Movie

I'll see it, in hope that this does well enough that WB will see fit to release the remaining classic M-G-M T&J cartoons on Blu-ray.

c'mon, WBHV .. or WA; either one of ya .. :mrgreen:

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

Well, I’ll say this: [the original Star Wars holiday special] was without a doubt one of the STRANGEST things I have ever seen. Almost disturbingly so! Lol. ;). I saw it as an 8-year-old kid, when it originally aired on TV. I was really excited beforehand .. but didn't like it, at all (with, perhap...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

HA2's "Merry Christmas" is a wonderful composition, IMO .. though, I'll admit my own preference is for the 'orchestral' version, rather than the chorale (which is the same opinion I have of Mr. Williams' songs composed for Hook, Harry Potter, etc). :mrgreen:

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I can take or leave Home Alone 2: Lost in New York the film. As Ben says, it's pretty much a rehash of the first movie, storywise .. though (IMO) the cartoonish violence directed at the 'bandits' is dialed a bit too high; there's at least a couple of scenes which -- by rights -- would result in deat...

Re: RIP Ken Spears Co Creator of Scooby-doo

There was an informative Cartoon Research post on that subject by Jim Korkis, several months back. Short version: yes .. though, the series pitch didn't start from that direction. Also, it seems that aspect was the result of a collaborative effort on the part of Ruby, Spears and CBS producer Fred Si...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

As for Screwey...well, they need to leave us wanting more, right? :) Despite my prediction a few pages back, it looks like they've held both Swing Shift Cinderella and Wild And Woolfy for volume 3 .. though, at least 'Red' does have random brief appearances in a few cartoons, in this volume. Anothe...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

I was just wondering a few days ago when (or whether) we might see a volume 2.

Good to know it's coming .. :)

Re: Tiny Toons Looniversity

Elmyra was 'annoying' at times .. but she was also undeniably a huge part of the 90s show.

I hope Shirley McLoon will be retained; she was my favorite .. loved her 'Val Gal' accent. :lol:

I'd also like to see Mary Melody given a larger role .. and perhaps another 'Julie Bruin' cameo, too..! :)

Re: Last Starfighter 2!

I enjoyed TLS for the cheesy 'b-movie' it was (still spin it up on Blu-ray, on occasion) .. and there's no denying it's a landmark film, in terms of its CG VFX.

Re: Charlie Brown Specials

The era of Peanuts specials on 'free' OTA broadcast television may have just come to a sudden end ..

Apple TV has just secured exclusive rights to all of the classic specials. :|

Or how about H-B's live-action movies, like C.H.O.M.P.S. ..? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcEV9VrSh3E jk; I have C.H.O.M.P.S. on dvd .. and there's really nothing about it that a 1080p transfer could 'improve'. :lol: Though it is amusing to see the iconic H-B studio building used as the filming l...

Re: Favorite And Least Favorite Studio Ghibli Movie?

I'd always kinda felt kinda bad about 'hijacking' this Studio Ghibli thread with Lupin the Third talk .. so, if you wanna repatriate the relevant stuff above to gaastra's new Lupin the Third: The First thread in the 'At The Movies' section, that's OK by me. :mrgreen:
