Re: Jurassic World

I loved Fallen Kingdom and the gripping, where the heck is this going rollercoaster ride, but is it me or is that new short film posted on our front page...uh...terrible!? I'm almost going to theorize that Universal had given Fallen Kingdom up for dead, until some bean-counter thought, "Wait--Maybe...

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

Come on Disney, pick someone! ;) Am I mistaken, or does there seem to be more fan interest in what name gets attached to the project if one gets made, than to whether the project gets made at ALL? That can get very confusing for the studio, you know, and lead them into thinking we want to see the m...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

And that's before it even "officially" launches... Safe to assume more will likely be added. Good selection. Love "The Wise Little Hen", and "Chef Donald" is a riot! "Pluto's Christmas Tree" is a classic and a must watch during the holiday. Safe, but not guaranteed. The fact that "Three Little Pigs...

If it's after Labor Day, Memorial Day is "Last summer". :lol: Okay, "Last May", it wasn't Memorial yet.

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Also, weren't the 60's Jetsons/Jonny Quest (and hopefully Flintstones, if they ever get around to it :mrgreen: ) produced on film stock before airing? Blu-ray is still working out the bugs on remastering video source, and hasn't gotten it quite right yet, but early film-sourced series are the first ...

Re: John Carter of Mars

Even Cutthroat Island, as cheesy and often misguided as it was, is more entertaining than most huge hits. I mean, look how bad Lion King looks compared to what it’s hauled in. I've seen Cutthroat Island, and it was a mess. :shock: Here's where we get the "Flop vs. Disappointment" ethic at work. It ...

Re: John Carter of Mars

Exactly. What is the definition of "bomb" anyhow? Please do not answer that. It was rhetorical. I'll answer it anyway: There's an overlooked debate about how a "Bomb" or a "Flop" differs from a "Box-office disappointment"-- Short answer, a "Disappointment" disappoints you because it had enough basi...

Check out the restoration on Jetsons: Yes, imagine the future, when we'd have 3D-TV? :lol: (And then everyone would claim it was a "conspiracy" by "greedy studios" because they'd just bought a new set two years earlier, gamers would think it was a waste of time because they're weren't any games for...

Re: Official Star Wars Thread

"You must face Sidious as I faced Vader!" So, we're basically forgetting that she already faced Snoke as Luke faced Sidious? (And...pretty much EXACTLY like Luke faced Sidious?) Good--Then that means that we essentially are forgetting everything that happened in Last Jedi. All's as it should be. :)

Re: Disney Movie Rewards

I miss the exclusives, the one of a kind trinkets. "Free" DVDs and Blu's are all well and good, I would rather spend my hard earned points on something that not everyone can get. That's what pushed me into signing up! Those free coins were sweet, as was the stuff I got afterwards. I miss the exclus...

Re: Charlie Brown Specials

And unfortunately, Warner's script says that the "Decade" Complete 60's and 70's DVD collections of the non-holiday specials "flopped", so we'll never see those on Blu-ray in our lifetime. Even just to break up the variety. Not that we've learned to expect Warner retail physical-disk releases WITHOU...

Hmm.. so a redhead before she goes full on Cruella. Interesting. Think she looks great. Now to wonder how and why the hair color change. A simple dye job or maybe some type of electric accident...? Well, just like the Joker had to be poor, struggling lil' "Arnold Fleck" before his new socially-expr...

Re: The Lion King Remake

Also, that’s ridiculous about the Beauty reference!! In the ‘94 version they were able to get away with Zazu singing “It’s a Small World” because it was such a general referral to Disney culture but referencing story elements from a specific (and relatively recent) animated film??? That’s nuts! :sh...

Re: France sets rule?: Movies must be three years old to go on streaming sites!

As for streaming vs dvd I do both myself. Most blu-rays come with digital copies and vudu has the $2 disk to digital program. See, THIS is what I was talking about.
