Re: John Carter of Mars

The very first feature film on which I contributed VFX -- Warner Bros' Red Planet -- is among the all-time biggest box office losers. :oops: But I also later did some pre-viz work on James Cameron's Avatar .. so, it all balanced out. :lol: ----------------- And I very much enjoyed John Carter (of Ma...

Not only that: but WA is also reissuing the 2008 b&w Fleischer Popeye The Sailor Volume 2 &...

Re: Toy Story 4

Yeah; I had to post a few TS4 spoilers in the open, a couple of pages back, and ended-up doing a similar thing: prefaced it with a clearly-labeled "SPOILERS AHEAD" warning. The 'hide' tag code has been broken since the forum upgraded to the newest version, a few months back. You can use the tag .. b...

Re: Roger Rabbit Sequel?

I'm not familiar with the publisher; I was just speculating as to possible reasons for the higher price. :oops:

It would seem it is a mystery.

The book's title brings to mind a rather different cartoon, though ..

Re: Roger Rabbit Sequel?

It's published by The University Press of Mississippi; hardly a mass-market publisher. So, the hardcover edition likely is a smaller run (as Daniel posits) .. and is probably mainly intended for sale to public/school libraries. If it is like some other "university press" hardcover animation history ...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

It's the complete original 1962 prime-time TV series. When I was a little kid (and for years before that), there were only 24 episodes of The Jetsons . They'd get shown as reruns on local stations, occasionally (mostly just during the summer, though). When syndication became the rage in the early da...

Re: Criterion Collection

Destroy All Monsters is absolutely my favorite of the series .. followed closely by both 1970s 'MechaGodzilla' films. I'm also fond of Rodan . :mrgreen: I'm pretty happy with my standard-def DVD collection of the entire Godzilla franchise .. which took me many years to assemble -- piecemeal -- from...

Re: Favorite 80's Cartoon?

The only cartoons on that list that I don't recall having seen are Visionaries , MoonDreamers and Inhumanoids . I actually dug Bravestarr more than He-Man , at the time. Galtar and Blackstar were pretty fun, too. Thundarr the Barbarian (not on the list) was probably my favorite of that 'sci-fi/sword...

Re: Disney's The Little Mermaid (Live-Action)

AFAIK, every single Ariel in The Little Mermaid Broadway show portrayed her with red hair .. and I'm pretty sure a majority of them either dyed their hair red, or wore a wig. We can thank Glen Keane for the red hair; Eisner & Katzenberg apparently wanted to make Ariel a blonde, citing the popularity...

Re: Toy Story 4

Of course, I do know of Gabby from Gulliver's Travels .. but he's a guy. :P :lol: Also, 'Debra' or 'Deborah' are often shortened to 'Debbie' .. with two 'b's, in spite of there being only one 'b' in the longer name. Ditto with 'Abigail' to 'Abby'. So, yes .. I agree; it's interesting that I've inter...
