Re: Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Live-Action)

You should be, Ben. Just re-read it and I can totally see how so many were fooled: it’s so imaginative and the details/tone of the “inside story/news scoop” template are pitch-perfect! :) (I also once wrote fake news stories for an April Fool’s edition of a college newspaper, and it’s not anywhere N...

Re: Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Live-Action)

O....K. :shock: Yes, the film that young Walt Disney risked everything for (including his studio) because he TRULY BELIEVED that animated shorts could be enhanced and have their own majesty and deep human emotion, is now being remade probably shot-for-shot in live action. (And this isn’t like a TRUE...

Re: Addams Family CG Movie

Oh yeah, don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film! So many amazing lines:


“Children, why do you hate the baby?”
“We don’t hate him. We just want to play with him. Especially his head.”

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

Even though I definitely appreciate much of it, there are two things that I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND about Insurrection: (actually they’re probably related on some level) 1.). There’s a very interesting book by script writer Michael Piller (“Fade In: The Making of Star Trek: Insurrection”) that gives a...

Re: Mulan (Live-action remake)

Love the Chinese poster and that photo actually looks all kinds of awesome...I think Mulan is, without a doubt, the only Disney animated film that might actually be enhanced through a live-action adaptation. EDIT: Trailer was very beautiful...I love the animated version of course, but the live-actio...

Re: The Twilight Zone

Interesting, although I still do kind of like the “mute” idea. The big problem was that even with a very atmospheric feel, the episode basically has nowhere to go, so a very stale “twist” is almost hurriedly tacked on. It might be better with an elderly couple who can actually give voice to their th...

Re: Addams Family CG Movie

Trailer for original 1991 film. For some reason I’ve always preferred it over the ‘93 sequel (not that I don’t enjoy that one too). :). Love the very, um, subtle Tombstone Pizza plug right at the end. Ha. https://youtu.be/y3Vni14-xC0 Raul and Anjelica were both fantastic. They both had amazing chari...

Re: Wonder Showzen

Yeah, seen that. Pretty pointless of Rogen to film an “ironic” spot like that since they all drop F-bombs in it anyway... :roll: I really don’t want to come off like a prude (as I’ve mentioned other times, I am, almost against my will, a huge watcher of Family Guy) and this statement might shock, bu...

Short Iger portrait from NPR: https://www.npr.org/2019/09/26/764329165/disney-ceo-bob-iger-has-lessons-on-fostering-creativity-and-acquiring-it I find this passage particularly interesting: In his book, Iger writes that managing the creative process requires both empathy and resilience.

Wow, very interesting, but I’m not completely surprised. Don’t get me wrong, Steve Jobs was a BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT man and we really owe him a lot; but yeah, no surprise that originally he wanted to completely shut WDFA down after the merger. https://www.slashfilm.com/walt-disney-animation-almost-sh...

Re: The Twilight Zone

Love that book title cover joke too. :). Plus I think James Earl Jones played “Zerach the preparer” who helped cook the dinner and was crying because the Simps didn’t like it. :cry: (At least I think so....been SO LONG since I’ve watched that ep.) That same Halloween ep also did “It’s a Good Life” w...

Re: The NEW Muppet Movie

Rizzo is still very much around! I've seen him pop up on Muppet Babies ... he's a favorite of mine, too! Oh wow that’s great to hear, Dan! :) I do remember him making a very brief cameo at the end of the 2011 movie (also didn’t he have a small part in Most Wanted?). He’s so adorable! I even had his...
