Pumped to see this. Really was that good?
"Swingin' the chain, swingin' the chain, swingin' the chain..."
"People who don't punch their ponies make me SICK!"
I'm beginning to think that I'm one of the only people on Earth who doesn't despise this movie.
I really want to know where the guy who voiced the puma is now and, more importantly, if he's still depressed.
One of the most fun movie experiences I've had in a long time. You seriously haven't lived until you've seen elderly people swearing and firing machine guns, zombies getting run over by a double-decker bus and a guy kicking a zombified baby into a billboard a mile away.
This has made it onto Mubi and yet "Pooh's Grand Adventure" hasn't? Bullshit!
It's truly amazing how even when the Ice Age franchise is getting more and more ridiculous, the Scrat segments and shorts are still full of hilarious, creative situations and animation. It just goes to show how Scrat is truly one of the greatest characters ever made.
Anybody remember "Life In Hell"? Hysterical stuff! Definitely one the greatest comic strips of all time.
"Bill was born late Tuesday morning into a world of orange and red. He likes the way the aquamarine rug feels across his hands. He likes sunbeams and rockets and the smell of the backyard in the early morning. He likes tigers and trees and melted chocolate ice cream and watching the lights while falling asleep in the back seat. Someone sits on the shore and tells him how the waves have been there long before Bill existed and that they'd still be there long after he's gone. Bill looks out at the water and thinks of all the wonderful things he'll do with his life."
One of the most criminally underrated directors/cartoonists of all time.
Good film, but, oh my God, I realised how utterly racist Marty's subplot was, Jesus Christ.
Quite possibly the darkest, most fucked up Christmas special ever made. And also one of the greatest. Though, I can't help but wonder if this short is what inspired the idea of The Great Mushroom War from "Adventure Time". Just a theory, anyway.
"If you've seen Willard, you've seen Mr. Popper's Penguins. Instead of rats, just add some penguins! It's the exact same movie!"
When this comes out on Blu-Ray, I'll watch it once to enjoy the film itself and then twice in slow motion to savour every single last gloriously cartoony frame.
Well, I certainly liked it. The story and humor may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it was still very entertaining. The animation is just as good as I'm making it sound. Honestly, even if you don't end up liking the film, you'll at least appreciate how much effort they put into making it look as amazing as it is. It's got "Tartakovsky" written all over it.
"Yeah, uh, I'm gonna need to see those TPS reports soon...did you GET the memo?"
If they ever made a biopic on this guy, I wouldn't be surprised if turned out to be one of the most depressing movies ever made. I mean, jeez.
As a representation of a real historical event, it fails. But as a film on it's own, it works very, very well and unlike most other Disney knock-offs from the '90s, I was actually invested in the plot and characters. Plus, it has some of the best songs I've ever heard in a musical, animated or not. I'm not fond of the watering down of Rasputin, but he's not in this for very long, so whatever. Decent worthwhile stuff.
A very refreshing family film with a surprisingly King Kong-esque story. As well as being both funny and emotional, it also features some of the most subversive dialogue I've ever heard in a modern-day kid's movie, which makes me love it all the more. I actually wish that more films would as many risks as this did. Sure to become a Halloween classic.
His books were what first introduced me to the concept of not just black comedy, but EXTREMELY black comedy and, for that, I thank him.
My mum put this on one night and turned it off after the first five minutes or so, saying it was "too corny", without knowing that it was a spoof that only came out three years ago. She thought it was actually a serious film from the '70s. That's how fucking well this movie parodied the blaxploitation genre. Only a spoof/homage this detailed and well-directed could fool something into thinking it was the real deal.
"Oh, my dear Bartholemew...I'm afraid you've gone and upset me!"
Emotionally stunning, an underrated masterpiece.
Enthralling adaptation of one of the greatest love stories ever told.
"He's a real Nowhere Man / Sitting in his Nowhere Land / Making all his Nowhere plans for nobody.../ Doesn't have a point of view / Knows not where he's going to / Isn't he a bit like you and me?" Absolute poetry.
The defining moment in Seth MacFarlane's career. Aside from the at-times pointless 80's referencing (as well as directly stealing the entire "Stayin' Alive" sequence from "Airplane!"), this is a hilarious, touching movie with excellent writing, acting and characters, with a surprisingly realistic tone to it. Of course, there's plenty of ridiculous jokes about celebrities and fart jokes to go around. The way they worked "Flash Gordon" into the plot was just perfect. "FLASH JUMP!"
This could be considered a landmark in film history, in that it contains the first and only instance of a character in a CG animated kid's movie actually taking a shit onscreen, uncensored. They literally show each turd falling out of it's ass and nobody comments on it. For that reason alone, this movie should watched and remembered by future generations as a true original.
Cute, simple adaptation of one of my most loved childhood books.
