Re: Bedrock: A Sequel to The Flintstones

I'd make the joke about Warner's franchise-marketing department needing a new idea to jumpstart one of their few "good" H-B titles, and getting that Pebbles violin-rub "sudden bad-idea" vibration, but think I did that one already for Twitter. :lol:

Ringo: “Hey...Would you believe me if I said I was being tempted by a girl water spirit from a yellow submarine?”
Policeman: “Uh...No, no, I would not.”
Ringo: “I, er, didn’t think you would.”

Re: YouTube Goodness

So, THIS just turned up-- Apparently, various surviving pencil tests and animatics from that legendary Robert Zemeckis 3D CGI "Yellow Submarine" remake that Disney might have subjected us to, had Mars not been in such dire need of Moms: (Apparently, Pepperland has flying pegasi, and Blue Meanies com...

Re: Bedrock: A Sequel to The Flintstones

Eric has often made jokes like "Seth who? Oh, that guy....He's still alive??" and then had people "correct" him before, so as long as that continues he might as well add "disclaimers" for the overly serious. And by "overly serious", we mean "Those who leap at the starting bit to find something to c...

Re: Bedrock: A Sequel to The Flintstones

And literally no one at WB sits around going "what property did we not teach people to hate on Cartoon Network?" and uses that as the reasoning to invest in a multi-million dollar primetime series for television. (You realize you could say that exact same thing about that live-action Powerpuff Girl...

Seth who? Oh, that guy....He's still alive?? :lol: [Dacey Irony-Deficiency Disclaimer: Yes. I know he is. Stand down.] It's basically Warner in Doctor Sleep/Blade Runner 2049 mode, wondering what other house-brand properties they can bring back for 20th-30th high-school reunions, AND trying to jumps...

Re: Oscar Chat 2021

I haven't seen a new (non-Disney+) movie since Onward played theaters, so I'll sit this year out. I'm only tuning in to see the "movie-style" awards, and get previews for which missed movie I should rent...Pretty much what I've done for the last twelve years, only this time, I have to find out which...

Re: Haunted Mansion Movie Reboot!

So, I'm guessing they think this still has to be a "black" film, or Eddie Murphy nostalgists would be disappointed?

Re: The NEW Muppet Movie

With Disney putting their own franchise name in the title, I think they want to put this on the Saving Mr. Banks/Mary Poppins Returns assembly line, for more stories about how adults couldn't get their life together until they learned to embrace their inner Disney character.
Or, in Jim's case, Kermit.

Re: Space Invaders the movie!

Mortal Kombat writer Greg Russo says Space Invaders is still alive at Warner Bros. and reveals his adaptation won't be a classic alien invasion story. Ohh, I see, because New Line tried to 90's-nostalgia jumpstart their Mortal Kombat franchise for a brand name, so now "Videogame movies aren't dead"...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

Looks like our hero is the son of... a bad oriental dude. (That was actually Fu Manchu in the comics, of course, but obviously not for the film.) He tries to resist his destiny/father's wishes, and will either submit or chart his own path. That's a pretty standard set-up, but whatchagonnado? Curiou...

Re: Avengers and the MCU

Trailer looks kind of meh though. I have no clear idea of who he is, why I should care (or be excited), and don’t have enough insight to identify or be interested in him. You shouldn't, shouldn't, and...don't feel bad. It was literally Marvel's ONLY excuse for an entry into China-mania to go with D...
