Hades all the way, a fantastically funny character and so original.
You'll be saying the exact same thing, when you watch part 2. Wink
But seriously, not evil enough?
I'll have to watch it soon....
I dunno Dan, it just seemed to me like his character had been more evil before and that the whole story started out much darker (just a feeling I get, plus rumors we've heard) and that not to frighten the kiddies they threw in those Gargoyle sidekicks (not putting them down
) and made Frollo kind of...pathetic.
Like when he tells his soldiers to attack the gypsies and burn their houses, etc....he never does
anything himself, not even when Quasi's mom is pursued....he's always like "Oh, kill her..." or "Kill them..." but HE never really does anything. (Not that this makes him any less guilty...but definitely less scary.)
You never see him personally, physically threaten anyone except Esmeralda, and he has a thing for her anyway so...
He tells the soldiers to let Quasi get humiliated or beaten (can't quite remember the scene exactly, haven't watched it in a while) but never beats Quasi himself....**
He's dour, humorless and often....boring. He needed some charisma and presence (like Scar, Jafar and Hades) to really make the character stand out and be, well, scary....he just isn't, for the most part. Then that whole end when he's about to die and looks scared of the "demon" in his mind---interesting...but makes him even less
He just needed to be...more. I don't know more what, exactly. I think Tony Jay was wonderful and in no way am I trying to disrespect his memory, but I really feel that someone like James Woods, Jack Nicholson, Jonathan Winters (Jafar) or Jermey Irons would have been better.
You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!
