You're telling me you don't remember three solid years of THIS??
Yes, CN had its little tantrum, and got all the bad old reruns off its network, now it's time to repair the cultural damage it inflicted on an entire generation of cartoon watchers that grew up believing that the new millennium needed to "avenge" the fact that the Wonder Twins ever appeared on television, as well as the Guy Who Talks to Fish.

Kinda random but with all the talk of remakes I couldn't help but think of these two films:
Psycho, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1960.
Psycho, dir. Gus Van Sant, 1998.
Both clips are from the "A Boy's Best Friend is his mother" monologue. I'm not trying to attack Vaughn or Heche; both of them do an adequate job, (although in my opinion Vaughn was completely miscast). Sort of interesting to see the two scenes side by side.
OK, just want to say right off the bat that this is NOT a real movie. But it's d*** convincing, at first I was definitely fooled by it! (Fresh Prince of Bel Air as a gritty coming-of-age drama called "Bel Air".)
This might seem a bit insane but for some reason I've always loved the last scene of Batman and Robin (well, except the VERY last part LOL). Everything feels so much more natural and the actors actually seem to have a bit of chemistry together. Plus Michael Gough could NEVER give a bad performance, (even in the scene where he's basically Max Headroom talking to Barbara on the computer).
Plus the funniest thing happened when I watched this in the theater (opening night, completely packed); during the scene where Bruce is pacing nervously and Barbara's sleeping on the couch, someone from the front row actually yelled out: "Oh, won't this EVER end?" And EVERYONE laughed.
Existed, past tense:
Sadly, the Brazilian studio of "What's Up" and "Ratatoing" is no longer around, and the mantle of horrendous-looking Because-We-Can Pixar and DreamWorks knockoffs has now been picked up by...the Asylum. Yes, THAT one.
Because they feel a noble duty that their "fans" expect it from them:
What's different about this one is that they literally just use Roddy and Verne, rather than create their own rip-off characters. I suspect that's why this one never came to the states, as they wanted to avoid DreamWorks pursuing a lawsuit (which, of course, several studios ended up doing anyway).
