On the other hand, Walt was a merchandising genius. Games in general were very popular with his characters.

FWIW, Coraline is a deserving contender for the Best Animated Feature Oscar, as well. IMHO, Coraline 's story-telling is actually a bit stronger than Up 's (though, both movies are excellent). I can't comment on The Princess and the Frog , since I haven't yet seen it .. but the trailer does look sp...

I'm not such a fan of Pooh that I rush out when new movies are made, but these have been pretty decent. This is good news to me.

I just saw Up last night and both my wife and I loved it. I teared up at the two appropriate moments. Overall, it was an excellent movie and a heartwarming adventure story. The dog is really the comedic highlight of the movie and provided most of the laughs. The comedic timing of the gangs was perfe...

I think the difference between R and PG-13 has to do with blood. However, a horror movie can still be horrific and scary without blood. It just needs to be scary.

I watched it this week and I enjoyed it. I didn't love is as much as say, Terminator 2, but it was definitely miles better than Terminator 3. I would go see a sequel. Fans of actions and sci-fi should enjoy it. It was cool to have the plot advance to the future.

Although from what I can tell, the name would rhyme. Isn't toad being translated as Rana in Spanish? Tiana/Rana has a nice ring to it.

I thought the first one was cute. I watched it with my nephew and he really enjoyed it. I wouldn't mind a sequel.

So, would it be worth seeing in 3D? I sometimes get a little dizzy watching 3D movies, but I trust Pixar. I'm sure it's perfectly fine in 2D, but would I miss anything?

Not bad. It looks good, but am I the only one afraid this will be campy? I hope they play it seriously, but with the right amount of humor that is in the series. I don't want an Aang that is too serious.

I agree. It's a great movie. I watched it on DVD for the first time, so I've never seen it on widescreen. Still good though. :)

Anytime they do an adult film, it's under their other labels - Touchstone, Hollywood, Miramax, etc... All that is Disney as well, technically. They will keep their "Disney" brand strictly for family fare.

I watched A&D this weekend. It was definitely better than the first movie. I always preferred A&D over TDVC mainly because I just liked the story better. The new movie has a much quicker pace than TDVC which was appreciated.
