I think it is kind of weird Lion King is supposed to look as far from animated as possible but still gets lumped in with Animated Films.

I wonder if the creators are insulted or not.

I think it was a cheese move to put Avengers back in but oh well.

Yup, they put a lot of effort into animal motion study, and the animation turned out great.

At what point do we need to sit down and discuss Toy Story 4 as a bomb?

When we're living in an age where a film with a $859 million global take is considered a bomb, it's likely time to reevaluate things.

Saw Spider Man over the weekend, really fun movie. I enjoyed it way more than Endgame.

All Looney Tunes Shorts To Receive Epic Live-Action Remakes

Quote:
BURBANK, CA—Warner Brothers Animation announced last week that they would be following in the footsteps of Disney by remaking all of their classic Looney Tunes shorts using ultra-high-budget, hyper-realistic computer-generated graphics. With the success of The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and the hype surrounding The Lion King’s coming release, the WB decided it was time to bring back a few classics of their own.

“When we made the original Road Runner cartoons, we were extremely limited in what we could accomplish,” said Vice President of Animation, Brian Jones. “We didn’t have the resources to have a photorealistic coyote falling off of an actual high-definition cliff in Death Valley. We had to tell the whole story using childish line art with incredibly unrealistic falls and explosions. Now computers have caught up to our vision: a real-life coyote falling to the bottom of a cliff and getting crushed, then exploded in extremely realistic detail.”

Warner Bros.’ Road Runner is slated for a late 2019 release, followed by Last Turn at Albuquerque, Duck Amuck, and What’s Opera, Doc? Besides retelling the stories in gorgeous high-definition — where every single hair can be seen from the back of the largest movie theater — the shorts will also be converted to feature-length cartoons with emotionally satisfying through-lines. “Wile E. Coyote will be less about just trying to kill a bird and be more of an in-depth look at hunger, immigration, and the border through the eyes of this coyote’s struggle to find a meal,” said Jones. Warner Bros. also has a Pepe Le Pew film in the works to address the concerns of the #MeToo movement featuring music by the White Stripes titled Without Con-Scent.

Other planned releases include an H.R. Gigeresque take on Marvin the Martian and an epic Duck Dodgers film directed by James Gunn starring a real duck in green pajamas.

When asked if Warner would be producing any new, original material, Warner Brothers reps assured reporters that the age of new, original material in Hollywood was over and the age of recycled animals with ultra-crisp, high-definition animal hair was finally here.

Warner Bros. also admitted that by "live-action" remake they actually meant CGI.

I was past half of the excerpt and still tought it was going to be true. it was too horrible of an idea to be false.

I guess it is the expetation now with movie studios. Get the most awful crap as fast as possible.

Good news it was satire.

Finished season 3 of Stranger Things and the final episode nearly makes up for how boring the rest of the season has been. Better than last year but there is something off about the acting and they spend too much time telling you how powerful Eleven is and how worthless all the guys are. Dacre Montgomery as Billy was the standout. He had a younger evil Wolverine vibe going on and it worked. The main story was a little too out there. The tone was more like Big Trouble in Little China. So if you go into it expecting that and not a return to season 1’s quality you’ll have a good time.

When it comes to films aimed at children first, adults second, it did fantastic. For these kind of films anything over $150 million domestic is considered a hit. Since the film did over $370 domestically with another $500 million internationally, it was a massive success.

I think Toy Story 4 is pretty well on par with TS3 which was considered very successful.

Lion King was incredible, with no real eye roll moments. Would have been even better if I didn't know the story already. I even enjoyed the singing and usually I hate singing in kids movies (except for Sing.) My 8 year old loved it too, but he embarrassed me by screaming at me in the theater over some stupid shit during "Can you feel the love tonight". IRONIC. I showed the disrespectful backtalking brat who's boss later. At this rate I will have fistfights with him as a teenager.

If you beat him hard enough now he will never challenge your rule.

He's only eight? I think abortion would still be legal for a few more years in New York. /s

Seven weeks.
Eleven thousand miles.
Thirty states.
Too many places to list.

Best. Summer. EVER!
