Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

"pure bollocks" Aw, now I'll never know what I missed... Ben still personally doesn't believe that the "Bartok's Boat" attraction at Sea World Orlando was a product of the Great Fox Tantrum of '98 (the studio freakin' ANNOUNCED they were going to throw it!) after Disney deliberately tried to "sabot...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

What's getting me suspicious, is that if it is an obvious fan-fakie rumor--"Disney+ wants to do a SW 'Chewie' spinoff series for streaming!"--okay: Just say, "Fan-fakie rumor", and leave it at that. We're used to them, by now. :lol: But ever since that Disney Cap/Spidey "Okay, Ix-nay on the Itch-bay...

Re: Disney Renaissance 2/Disney Revival

That didn't stop Pixar, or its fans, from wondering Who Was Minding the Store.

https://attractionsmagazine.com/disney-plus-day-one-list/ Mr boogedy, black hole, the gods must be crazy! (really??!!!) Yes, REALLY. That's one of the good family titles Disney inherited from Fox. :lol: Don't bother with Crazy Pt. 2, though, where N!xau, apparently thinking it was the third movie, ...

Re: Disney Renaissance 2/Disney Revival

And just TRY and tell audiences grown up on 90's Disney movies on disc when they were kids--who now literally believe Lion King is next to Shawshank Redemption as one of the 10 Greatest Movies of the Decade--how Hercules was originally the flop that nearly destroyed the studio in '97, as Jobs believ...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

What would be the point? Captain Marvel made a billion, they aren't worried about that franchise at all. There's really no need to add Spidey magic... Well, yes, there was a "need", a big fat studio-rescuing need that yes, they may have been worried about, and that sort of brings things full circle...

(Also The Simps parody is so brilliant!) Aliens: We have every possible TV channel in the known universe! Bart: Do you have HBO? Aliens: No, that costs extra.

Re: Avengers and the MCU

Mighty impressive roster. Sure feels like Marvel has a plan. And...what "plan" would that be, precisely? (When Thanos' minion in the first Avengers says "To attack the earth would be to court Death", and Thanos replies " :mrgreen: ", every old-school print-Marvel fan KNEW what was coming, six films...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

I think that Marvel has not told us every detail of their next 10 year plan, so that we can, you know, be surprised. Which is good. The Infinity storyline, case in point, was allowed to sneak up on us. I think they have earned our trust at this point. And I sure don't see them floundering. One's pe...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

B-but...MONEY!! And Marvel (the studio, not the character) is showing no signs of being in any form of financial danger, and I'm very curious as to why you're so certain that their future movies will bomb now because...reasons? Because...they don't really seem to have any game plan at the moment, a...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

....which is why Captain Marvel made $425 million stateside and a billion worldwide. You know, because everyone hated it. You don't hate a movie when you pay your ten bucks to walk INTO it... :roll: (And oo, tell us more about the worldwide grosses!...Did China like it?) More to the point, some at ...

Re: The NEW Muppet Movie

I think, as with Star Wars, that it’s time to switch the music, and time to dim the lights...and shine them away from the original gang and onto the new guys. The Muppets are not The Muppets, anymore (in best Bambi's Dad voice). And truth be told they haven’t been since Jim died (wow, 1990 feels a ...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

There's been a frequently-denied (but too plausible) fan rumor that MCU had been HOPING to have Captain Marvel be the new humorless hard-ass mentor to funny young foil Peter Parker after Tony/Nick, and team them up in their next two sequels...And that Sony taking their Spidey and going home was the ...

Re: Godzilla vs. Kong

Take with a grain of salt, a trailer description may have been leaked ! If true, it will debut in front of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker . I'm thinking it's a fake. Would be cool, though. What, the collection of clips from the past films (since they haven't finished enough VFX to show from the final cut)...
