Ant Man and Wasp had me rolling. Michael Pena is the best sidekick ever.

Michael Pena absolutely deserves his rise. I hope he gets a great leading role at some point.

Will Smith is too old to be anymore relevant on this planet.


Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

So is remake of Disney cartoons but with humans the new superhero comic adaptation? Will I have to expand my latitude of loathing? I don't want to spread it too thin and wide, because if things keep going this direction I might yet need it. A lot of it.   :getlost:

Quality of live action Disney movies aren't even close to Super-Hero adaptations so the answer is NO.

 

Unless of course you consider Mowgli's Story and Kim Possible in the same league as The Avengers ;)

 

 

Anyways, I welcome them because I know one in ten will interest me, someone else will be interested in what I don't like and I'm sure there are people who will live all Disney live action movies for all the right reasons - it's not like they have put one out yet that is truly bad but there's always purists. It's not rare for a live action adaptation to be better than the cartoons, but it's a matter if making the audience convinced enough to agree - that's the trick. It's no different from people whining about a remake when the remake is actually better, really.

 

I, for one, hated the new Alice movies because the overuse of terrible cgi but LOVED the original live action Alice In Wonderland movie from the 80's which was better than the cartoon. I suppose, mire than anything, it's just a matter of timing for each individual and how relative the casting is. Some people won't go see a movie if it has one person casted that they don't like. Sounds extreme but it happens abd I don't think this is any different, same is true for the opposite though. I will go see Dumbo just because it has Eva Green (who I follow for years), before that I didn't care for seeing it at all.

The 1985 Irwin Allen produced Alice in Wonderland is not a public domain film. Link removed to youtube upload.

I had no idea they were making a live-action Aladdin. *looks up trailer* Bwahaha, that trailer is so bad. Well, it could still be ok/decent in the full film, who knows. But that trailer. Bwahaha. They should have just gone with all animation/different looking genie and just Smith's voice or something.

I half-expected a bio-pic to be the last cash cow in the herd, but then, "Silmarillion" and other genre stuff prolly would be a harder sell to general audience than tried and true biopic. Which could also serve as an Oscar bait, the Academy of old farts seem to love em, no matter how cheesy and glossed over they are.  :getlost:

Not sure why people are laughing, that's nice simplistic web design!

Josh Brolin is Gurney Halleck.

It's still going to suck. :p

"It won't be long til we get a live action Toy Story, then all will be lost"

 

We already did, it's called Indian In The Cupboard and it ended up being better than Toy Story. Where were you? Oh right, you got lost ;)
