I'd just guess they were cheap import toys that came with a cheap import-- The road to licensing is still long. :( (And Doraemon is hysterical if you can find the fansubs, but it's such a mix of preschool and proto-anime crayon-drawn, fans lose hopes of it ever getting that big mainstream break exce...

Read my review and all will be revealed... And yeah, it was never one of my favorites either-- Mowgli always seemed the least sympathetic hero since "Sword in the Stone"'s Wart...And we can assume that Walt was just in a cranky mood when he decided to throw out the old book-related storyboards and ...

So you have to see this particular movie, and it has to be IMAX? What if you don't have an IMAX theater where you are? :? Why couldn't it just be a regular trailer? Or couldn't they put it on the Intenet as well? :roll: As most Warner movies now sell themselves with IMAX-only 3-D scenes (Superman, ...

"among the last films to bear the personal touch of Walt Disney" I really hope they don't leave that on the cover synopsis. Dalmatians was done and over WAY before there was any question of Walt even being ill! Ah, fooled by the "Among", were we? At least "Jungle Book" gets to wear its official "La...

Isn't that American Dog?.... (looks at YouTube) No, it's a mo-capped Timon! :P (Seriously, wouldn't take the Disney label too seriously-- They've been trying to invest in overseas animation companies for the "charitable" purpose of getting international industries started, but that doesn't mean the...

I dunno, I see the animation in the ads and think, "...Shouldn't he have a French accent and be talking about allergy spray?" :P

And don't know whether I'd already mentioned it in the CindyIII thread, but LM3 looks like it was greenlit as the official "apology" for LM2, in the same way that C3 was the apology to people who thought C2:the Series was a movie... LM2 was officially the first cheapquel ("Return of Jafar" was a TV ...

(NOTE: I haven't seen the show, but this is what I understand from what I've read. The ratings decline are indisputable.) Also, because "purists" think this isn't THE Jamie Summers of the 70's, and not just because the rights to the original "Six Million" book, name and characters are tied up in le...

How? Family Guy is and always has been a show that pokes fun of everybody. (Pop culture, etc.) That's the problem: SP and (although to a much lesser degree these days) Simpsons choose their targets-- Granted, both series wimp out and have their characters make pompous "Can't we all just get along?"...

Thought RTN-L was the best argument for "You can dress Disney videoquels up, but you can't take them out in public." ;) Ie., for all the "nice" looking animation, and Corey Burton's imitation of Hans Conried, the plot simply recycled LM2's "Daughter of franchise character disgruntled enough to fall ...

I'm kind of hoping for a fun little film along the lines of Mr Bug Goes To Town. I don't think Bee Movie is going to have the commercialism streak that Shark Tale ultimately stank of. Unfortunately, commercialism (and Dreamworks gushing over how big a name deal they could make) seems to be the enti...

...Yeah, it's been, what, six years since "Atlantis"? :P

(Or does Atlantean origin not count, even when the character has a black voice actress?)

Cool. Thus far, I've really enjoyed all the new specials, so here's hoping the next ones don't dissapoint! :) Think the series may have burned itself out trying to do the Saturday-morning series (which also just transcripted four-panel shorts). The new comic-transcript specials are.... okay , but t...
