My favorite of Shelley Duvall's projects for the Disney Channel was her first one: Mother Goose Rock n' Rhyme.

Crazy-imaginative visuals, genuinely fun songs .. and a star-studded cast! 8)



The whole movie is also on YouTube, in varying levels of quality (most of them 'sub-VHS').

Sure would be nice to see this get a nicely-remastered DVD release ..

Where the Duvall shows, which we sporadically got over here, worked was, as with Henson's stuff of the same era, that they did elaborate, ambitious things but that never broke the TV budget. Sure, they pushed the boundaries and got maximum bang for their buck, but it always looked good because they did what they did within the confines of the medium.

And sure the folks at Disney we’re keeping an eye on , and we’re probably envious of, what their "pal" Tim was doing after he’d jumped the Mouse House, so I’m sure you’re right in Aladdin factoring in there. I’d love nice remasters of all these things!

No, meant that the 80's Duvall versions of Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty, etc., predated the 90's Renaissance versions, and may have worked out a few first-draft visual ideas.
Unless you've seriously never wondered whether Little Mermaid's Prince Eric bore an awful darn resemblance to Treat Williams from Duvall's Pam Dawber version.

On the upside, at least we got source-preserved versions of the original tales in the as-yet-uncorrupted 80's productions, and can show our kids the "alternate ending" to Mermaid, the proper plot of Snow Queen, and proof that there was no Toxic Gaston in the true version of Beauty&Beast.

This...is a cheap attempt to make a stupid movie in lockdown that has a premise so dumb and outrageous that it can’t help but be spread around, as you just have, and get noticed. That tag line is so, so wrong. "Did you see that cat movie?" This will be massive, sadly.

Well, it's Canadian and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee was in The Mandalorian. Of course it'll be a hit!

Or.... wow, what a nutty, insane premise.

Lol, this should be in our “This can’t be real!” thread. (J/K :wink:)

And yeah, it looks...reality-defying hideous. :shock:

I'll be grateful when the theaters open again, and we can tell the "real" movies apart from the made-for-digital Gravitas losers.

OK, this is an Honest Trailer...of Honest Trailers. It was written by A.I. Enjoy.

I remember in the days of Usenet, we got one of those text scramblers where you could feed in selected text phrases, and use an AI randomizer to form new paragraphs.
Every time we had an annoyingly persistent showoff-troll, we used to feed his most colorful posts into the randomizer, take the clearest thing that came out, and have "conversations" responding to those instead. Oo, they HATED that! :mrgreen:

Really cool modern trailer of A New Hope (trust me, it's good).

(For some reason YouTube embedding not working for me. Not sure why, it might be my laptop.)

Not bad. The music really needed to kick up a gear with the jump to lightspeed but otherwise it's fairly convincing. :)
