Re: J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek"

It took you a full minute? Well, since I generally associate him with his written reviews, and have been discovering a wealth of vintage 70's-80's Sneak Previews clips on YouTube....yyyyeah. It was sort of farther down on my list of free associations. Used to frequent his blog for a while near the ...

Please...no-one make the obvious joke here. It really wouldn’t be funny.
I spent a full minute trying to think what was so "obvious" you were referring to, and then found it tasteless that YOU were the first one to think it. :?

This trailer may help prepare you for the movie.

Re: Farmageddon going straight to Netflix?

Maybe I'm old school, but I think at least for now the calendar app should be reserved for "normal" theatrical releases? Well, that's just it--They ALL think they're going to be theatrical releases. (At first .... :twisted: ) And like the old 80's/90's, some even get the one-week April/February-dum...

Re: Disney's Frozen

Why did we get F/2K? Home video sales and Roy Disney. Simple as that. Nooooo.....Read the question again, and backtrack the Cause & Effect: - We got the standalone F2K in 2000 because of successful '90 VHS sales and new Roy Disney interest, - Because everyone was buying the '90 release in a panic, ...

Re: Disney's Frozen

It was Fantasia Continued, Eric. And the rest of what you say is wrong. Okay, then, YOU explain why we got Fantasia Continued, considering that before '82, the movie had been reduced to playing college/grindhouse "trip movie" double bills with the then equally-throwaway Alice in Wonderland. Another...

Re: Disney's Frozen

Review is up! https://animatedviews.com/2019/frozen-ii-film/ During the studios’ first 60 years there was only one: The Rescuers Down Under in 1990. (An odd choice that’d I’d love to learn the reasoning behind! ) AIUI, the same reason we eventually got "Mary Poppins Returns" after thirty years of t...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Granted, I have access to Disney+ for 'free' (for the first year, thanks to Verizon) .. but I agree it is an 'added value' to my own large Disney home video collection; not a 'replacement' for it. I'm pleased to finally be able to watch many of the spin-off TV shows that I hadn't bothered to collec...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I can attest with TinkerBell improving. ;) "Great Fairy Rescue" is definitely the If-you-have-to-see-only-one title, but they basically peaked with "The Pirate Fairy". (Which was supposed to be a completely different story, in the early previews, which suggested the series was running to an end of ...

Interesting since they’re all done now anyway.

It’s the same thing, though. You’re really only paying each month to *rent* a library of content options.
Not for EVERY movie, though.
That's why some people go to a la carte restaurants, and some go to all-you-can-eat buffets.

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

So that’s me in a nutshell (yeah, yeah, "no, this is me in a nutshell! Help! I’m in a nutshell!"). Streaming will be perfect for basically catching up with rare stuff (and more legit that other nefarious means) and new offerings, but I’ll continue to buy and own discs for those special titles that ...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

In fact, I'm questioning a few of my recent disc purchases. Why did I buy George of the Jungle (another DMC exclusive) recently? It's all on D+ anyhow! This is...
