Re: Space Jam 2

Thus making it the perfect theme for a Space Jam movie.

Re: Demon Slayer The Movie Hit At Overseas Box Office!

Too bad, it was good for a few laughs. (Ie. the fanboy campaign, not the movie) Too bad the Leetie-fangirls had to join in. See, this was back when both were afraid they would be "crushed" at the box office by the runaway December-competition audience juggernaut of Fantastic Beasts and Bumblebee ( :...

Re: Demon Slayer The Movie Hit At Overseas Box Office!

We knew it was only going to get Fathom screenings, in our new half-opened "Go to the theater just to SHOW the jerks!" pandemic culture where theaters have only five movies that run for months, but from the posts here, you'd think it was DC's Aquaman. (You remember, the "Warner mistreats DC comic bo...

Re: Shrek reboot

Until DreamWorks became TOO self-struck with its recognizable-pop-song soundtracks, and the "Karaoke wrap party" became a staple of self-satisfied DreamWorks CGI comedies from there on in. (Further mutating into the Far Away Idol scene from Shrek 2.) I remember on a film discussion, we were having a...

Re: Shrek reboot

Do people still laugh at a big oversold gag of Shrek using fairytale-book pages as toilet paper? Apparently.

Do they believe the "revolution has begun", and the call has gone forth to tear down Disney Burbank HQ, Jan. 6 style? Nnnnot so much, nowadays.

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

And looks like they were going with "Prequel" to get around John Lasseter's new rule against Toon Studios sequelizing any existing classic story. There was reportedly a lot of friction, even to the point of Toon Studios keeping two sets of books from Lasseter about the first Tink movie's plot, since...

Re: Disney’s Jungle Cruise

One Disney podcast/blog used to have a regular contributor who used to work his dream job as a Disneyland Skipper-- He said the guys often like to haze the new guys on the last run of the day with having the other employees create a "shipwreck" at the end of the cruise, with bodies lying about, and ...

Re: More Disney Blus...Aug 12, 2014

My mistake. I did read somewhere that the film had been restored and included The Martins And The Coys opening segment intact, as it should do. This was around or before D+ was launched, so there was first hope of a DMC release and then that it might pop up on D+ unscathed. Anyone else remember tha...

Who is Michael Eisner?
I forgot, he's somebody who's supposed to look like that Lord Farquaad guy, or whatever.

This was back in the 00's, when Disney princesses were "evil", and we all wanted that Hawaiian-movie guy to run the studio, whatever his name was.

Re: Hotel Transylvania 4

Before finding out about Brian Hull, I wondered why Sony would STILL be working with Adam Sandler, since they basically barred and locked him out of the studio, for reasons I suspect have more to do than just "Grown Ups 2". Yes, Sony keeps trotting Drac back as their "house icon" every time they thi...

Re: Shrek reboot

People still take a snarky disgruntled-employee anti-Michael Eisner movie seriously sixteen years after Eisner left in disgrace and it became okay for us to all start liking princesses again? (As I recall, the third nominee that year was the Jimmy Neutron movie--Look, I know it was '01-'02, but SHEE...

I still say there's only ONE reason we're not seeing Make Mine Music on that double-feature disc with Melody Time yet, and bring it on. :) Quite a bit of the 80's (that was once handed off to Anchor Bay, back in the day) is still missing even from DMC Exclusive, and my annual Halloween-dusted-off So...

Re: Disney's Cruella (Live-Action)

I confess I did have to look twice to confirm it was Emma Thompson, and not the late Diana Rigg.
