Why do these guys go out of their way to avoid reviewing animated films? They watch every superhero film but then skip Big Hero 6. They've admitted they're tired of big blockbusters but then don't go see stuff like Lego Movie or Inside Out. I get that maybe Disney musicals wouldn't be there thing, but there are other just solid films overall. I'm sure their audience watches them, why ignore them?
They may not think it's their medium. They're filmlovers, and animated films are a different kind of beast. Animated films can be completely created, the only limitations being money and time. Money can buy skill, and time can allow it to come to fruition. Whereas with liveaction, they understand that everything onscreen, especially actors, are real, and the equipment you use with your layout and execution dictates how everything will look. Animated films you can do all of that yourself. So they stay in...

Movies like Inside Out are marketed towards kids but still follow all the rules of film making, including actor performance, composition, timing, camera placement, lighting, narrative, tone, etc. They're films that advertise to kids but are still just solid films to watch for anyone. They aren't movies like Home or Minions whose writing is so low tier, it feels like it's for children.
Anyone else think an Alpha Flight movie would be a good idea?
>Star Wars Kanan just finished
>Starbrand & Nightmask is cancelled after issue six
>Audioplay Kickstarter was successful but didn't raise awareness in his novels like he hoped for
>relegated to writing for Shimmer & Shine and World of Warcraft YA novels
How the mighty have fallen.
No. He can't talk about it because he signed an NDA. He'll probably mention it years later, just like he did with the Green Lantern and Space Ghost shows he did before working on Young Justice.
What's your opinion on writers doing shit like this?
it's shitty internet humour. I expect better from professionals than aping a gaggle of morons
I want to say that's why I've enjoyed recent parodies less than older ones (Hot Shot, Airplane!, Spaceballs)
Robots are underutilized in animation.
There I said it.
We're entering an age of actual real life robots in this world and no one in animation at all has so much as even RECOGNIZED them.
And I think that's bullshit.
>The Iron Giant
>that maid robot from the Jetsons
>BEN from Treasure Planet
>the ENTIRETY of the Transformers franchise and all its cartoons
I don't know about you OP, but I think there are plenty of robots in animation at the moment, and that's only to name a few.
When are they gonna stop cramming Damien down our throats?
One of the things I really like about DC shit is that they make up their cities for their heroes.
Damn near everything takes place in New York in Marvel and it's ridiculous. In just the MCU New York is worse than fucking Detroit and has multiple super heroes and villains practically on the same block. Whenever I realize They are supposed to be in New York it takes me out of it.
In Gotham, Starling City, Central City or Metropolis you can make the city as grand, dangerous, shitty, huge or futuristic as you want with no worries and the stories are far better for it.
>In Gotham, Starling City, Central City or Metropolis you can make the city as grand, dangerous, shitty, huge or futuristic as you want with no worries and the stories are far better for it.
Not really, since the only place DC bothers to make in anyway distinct is Gotham, and that's only in the sense that it's grimdark. Otherwise, the setting is every bit as generic as Marvel's.
>Marvel fails to make the West Coast Avengers successful
>attempts to open the west coast back up again with Runaways
>California is now supposed to be a wild west of superheroes with the Pride vanquished
>Marvel literally adds zero new west coast heroes after Runaways
What went wrong?
Can we have an Invader Zim Thread? I've been watching it on Kiss Cartoon and I think it really fucking holds up. Ignoring the "teh cupcake of d00m x3" crowd, I think it's one of the better Nicktoons.
Can someone give me some good Thunder recs? like specifically the run in pic related? or other good ones? [sp] obscure character thread? [/sp]
The best thing thunder has been in was those DC shorts.
>Plastic Man movie turned down by Warner
Why are we stuck with Snyder when we could have had this?
Why is WB so utterly shit?
>we live in a world where a Gunn-produced Plastic Man movie never will exist
Well I'm fucking depressed now.
ITT: we figure out the
worstepisode of Samurai Jack.
Also Samurai Jack thread. How do you think the new show will do without the old voice actor for Aku?
So, new episode "Don't Look" airs tonight at 7/6c. Expectations?
So why is Daisy the singular exception to Disney's dress code?
are they setting up Injustice?
No. This is a Superman who has lost Lois/Martha and lost hope, leaving him vulnerable to the anti-life equation and Darkseid's control.
The fact he works with a bunch of parademons as well as human soldiers and the giant fucking omega symbol burned onto the face of the earth is a clue.
