Mad Magazine!!

:o In the new issue of Mad they have the Incredibles on the cover. They make fun of all the stuff going on behind the scenes with Pixar, DW, Disney, etc..on the inside. Plus they have a section with Eisner doing a powerpoint demonstration on how to improve Disney.

It is a very good issue. :P

Katzenberg

I've really enjoyed DW films over the years, and I know that Katzenberg has a lot to do with them, so I admire him...I know this is all steeped in all these political issues, but I try not to think about them. I don't think Katzenberg is on a mission to destroy animation, I'll say that much. After a...

DW

I know Katzenberg really wanted to negotiate a deal with Pixar...for some reason it didn't work out. :cry:

No worries...I get your point. It's just that I've SEEN House of Mouse, where they brought back the original characters, and it's absolutely awful. The gags are dumb, the stories boring, and trust me about 75% of the "new" cartoons' plots are borrowed from the older cartoons. Mickey's Christmas migh...

Studio Ghibli

When Spirited Away was released by Disney, they wrote "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" not only because they handled the distribution costs but because Pixar produced the dubbing version of SA. Many have said that the translation from Japanese to English was very well done because the dubbing was dir...

Pixar

I went to a Disney College presentation two years ago and there was this whole thing about how many companies Disney owns. Someone asked: "Does Disney own Pixar?" and the lady was like: No, we partner with them, we share the profits. Something like that. She didn't say anything on WHAT Disney does t...

movie

Yeah because originally HOTR was called "Sweatin' Bullets", about a horse named Bullets. (I think). There were too many similarities so that's why they made the film about cows instead.

It does make you wonder.... :roll:

All in all though, I think Incredibles will win.
They BETTER win.
BECAUSE IF NOT

Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas

I read the review on DVD toons. I haven't seen the...special or whatever it is, but I totally agree. It's disgusting to see these characters watered down, marketed, and mutated almost beyond recognition. (I thought that's what they did at House of Mouse :twisted: ) All I have to say is SCREW SHOWING...

Roger Rabbit

And if BZ's Roger Rabbit came out in 2004 instead of 1988, I would say the same thing about that film: animation was an aid, a special effect, but it wasn't an animated film.

(*BTW I love RR so don't get me wrong! :wink: )

Polar Express

I haven't seen PE yet but I'm not sure anymore if it should be counted as animation. I only recently "got" how it was done (Mocap and all that) and it kind of seems like the entire film is one HUGE special effect. Nothing wrong with that, the motion-capture is an aid, but should it really be counted...

Bob Zemeckis

Oh right, I forgot BZ is Jewish! :oops:

Spielberg might also have been an interesting choice to direct PE. :P

Polar Express

PE's special effects and big names like Tom Hanks will have EVERYONE wanting to see it. It doesn't matter if you're Jewish or don't celebrate Christmas, it makes no difference as far as I know. Jews are like anyone else and want to see entertaining films, period. Only very religious Jews would proba...
