Re: The Twilight Zone

Because of the new reboot, SyFy aired an all day marathon this past Saturday! It was nice surprise. They gave the usual common ones like the Hitchhiker, It's Good Life etc. I just wish the quality on SyFy was better. It totally feels like the eppys are sped up which makes them feel fake. Very distr...

Re: The DOCTOR WHO Thread

I have been enjoying the recovered and newly animated episodes. Nice to see more coming out soon, too. Which others are coming out? I saw "Power of the Daleks" in its Fathom run a year or two ago, and it wasn't too bad--It's all about restoration, not animation quality, and more Troughton in the re...

Re: The Lion King Remake

That last bit with Timon and Pumbaa; Timon comes off uhh.. a little fruity. Especially with his paw raised up at first. Not to say that's inherently bad, it just doesn't *feel* like Timon. Well, that's just it: The gay community latched onto Timon & Pumbaa because the Southern Baptists did, because...

I loved the Pegacorn-raccoons! This looks so great, count me in!
Which brings up the question--If Pega-racorns are pests, why would anyone paint them on the side of their van?
Or maybe that's just more of the Chris Pratt character's delusion of "cool" fantasy?

Re: Disney Pixar's Onward

See, that was the problem with that "Heaven" April-Fool's joke:
It didn't sound so bad either, knowing that Pixar could find original gags in just about any premise, and make it look audience-appealing (at least in their independently-generated non-sequels).

Re: Cinderella: Platinum Edition Discussion

Thanks for sharing the various covers. My favorite would probably have to be the Target edition, very beautiful! It is very nice--I should know, I bought it back in 2012. They also had Target-exclusive books for Peter Pan, Aladdin, and Little Mermaid, but I'd already bought the 3D version of the la...

The sequel now has a title, Minions: The Rise of Gru. I like it!
Since DM3 tanked, I'm guessing Illuminations is putting its affairs in order and doing the penultimate "Origin prequel" entry, following on the "Before Gru" plot from the first Minions.
The finale movie should be interesting.

A funny article from The Hollywood Reporter floating around the ridiculous, or maybe not so ridiculous, notion of a shared universe between the live-action films. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/aladdin-will-disney-make-a-live-action-frozen-1213619 \ So far, only Alice’s sequel, Alice...

Here's hoping a Quickdraw McGraw set is in the works, as well..! :) After having finally looked up Quick-Draw and the undisked Huckleberry Hounds on bootleg sites, I'm guessing Warner's "Too poor condition to restore" alibi is just that-- Fact is, John Seely's library-music (most of which is owned ...

Re: Lady and the Tramp (Live-Action)

So it’s becoming clear that Disney+'s originals won’t exactly have the same budgets and status as theatricals. If this was destined for theatres, this casting would have been an Anjelica Huston or Olivia Davis. As it is, I can’t decide if Disney+ originals will just be Disney Channel-level TV movie...

Jasmine's newly created BFF. ;)
Which pretty much destroys the whole "Trapped at the palace" idea that put her relationship with Aladdin into motion in the first place.
Or was CGI'ing Rajah too much trouble?

Re: Primal

So, apart from Sony still pimping its "Hotel Transylvania" franchise for a house brand, is anyone still taking Tartakovsky seriously as an "emerging artistic talent" anymore, like they were back in the 90s' when nobody knew what to make of Samurai Jack? Y'know, like Lucas with that first "Clone Wars...
