Holysmokes, comments galore.
"Breath of Fire 2 actually IS an uber-quality game!!"
Mean dungeons aside, I agree.
Don't remind me of the shoe. :(
Between the show and his freaky-deaky eyes, I have trouble with the movie. "The dip" in general sounds like a dreadful way to go and it's brought up several times.
So in the end, we all have childhood traumas from the children movies we watched?
That damn horse from never ending story.... goddamn
Bambi and his mum
Last of Us's "end of summer" event. ;____;
I liked Return to Oz as well. I'm a nut for 80s fantasy like Labyrinth, NeverEnding Story, Dark Crystal...
Roger Rabbit was a great watch as a kid because it was all cartoony, but watching it again as an adult, I caught a lot of dialogue that I missed and that movie has some stellar one-liners and just incredibly written dialogue in general. Like when Delores
catches Eddie with his pants down when Jessica Rabbit visits his office, she said, "Dabbling in water colors, Eddie?"
Maybe it's nostalgia talking and/or the fact that I'm old (I turned 35 this year), but I agree with whomever said "Oz should have ended with the Muppets." I feel like though CG graphics and special effects can make the vividness of our imaginations really come to life, the "Muppet world" fantasies looked and felt more organic to me. Can you imagine Dark Crystal updated with CG effects and stuff? It would be just plain wrong. That movie is still so good even now and timeless. Tell me the Skeksis didn't creep you out a little as a kid.
I'm rarely interested in movies nowadays, except for some superhero films. That's one "genre" of film that's improved 100-fold since the "olden/golden" days of cinema.
Great post as a whole ra here.
Yes, most definitely, Roger Rabbit is a movie that can "swing" as a kid's movie, but it's definitely made for adults to get -- and I love that about it, it's almost perfect that way. It's also a movie that did the special effects better than a lot of films that came after it (I say this too about Fifth Element, the CG was years ahead of its time).
And also, yeah, I think the fact these films were much more "hand made" a large part of their charm --- CGI would almost make it too easy. Nevertheless, I am in favor of more Fantasy and Sci-Fi films given that it's easier to pull off realistically.
Best part of Roger Rabbit is Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny doing a bit together while falling off a plane. Legendary moment. Incredible movie.
No better way to involve two of the biggest animated cartoon icons. They played it well, Mickey was friendly, Bugs was Obnoxious.
Too bad Bob Hoskins career ended shortly after WFRR with that other movie he did. Sure he might have looked like a plumber but he was still a terrible choice for the role (of course the rest of the movie sucking out loud didn't help matters either).
Anyways, in regards to the movie: COME OUT AND PLAAAAY!!!
Aww, but I loved him as Smee and I'm a fan of Unleashed. :D
Hell no! Even though the Shoe was mourned for Jessica Rabbit gave me the first "special stirring" a female figure ever gave me. :D
Take the good w/ the bad.
David Bowie in Labyrinth.
