Wait, are you talking about the new movie versions of these... In which case I concur.

Thought you might be talking about the original cartoon GI Joe and Transformers movies...

In which case, if you were.... fark you.... and I mean it this time.

galactus5000: j68: It's for young kids so stop hating just to hate. The only thing that looks bad is the horrible CGI.

No. No it is not. Kids don't even remember Yogi Bear, so why introduce them to him with this abortion? Hell, why not trying to treat kids with a little respect, not some shiat CGI, Poochyfied, lump of crap that just makes anyone who remembers the character sad for everyone who has to "act" in this?


I don't know about Yogi, but my 8 yr old loves her some farkin Tom & Jerry. She discovered them on her own and she loves em.

One of the first big realizations of adulthood. You thoughts, feelings, experiences =/= others thoughts, feelings, experiences...

I took my daughter to see "Marmaduke" and she loved it. It was a pretty standard kid movie. It was nothing like the comic strip, however.

Why the Marmaduke hate?

crypticsatellite: drama

Many many moons ago in a supplement in an issue of the Tick someone
did this really twisted very bizarre post-apocalyptic Yogi Bear treatment... with the Ranger's crucified corpse as a religious Icon for a hot-air balloon traveling Yogi Bear. That I'd go see.

Yes, it looks horrible and I have zero interest.

But I have long thought that they should make a Jonny Quest movie and still do. But dammit, make it good!

This is why John Belushi dying young wasnt such a bad thing. It preserved his comic genius. Bill Murray was Garfield,Ackroyds Yogi....Imagine what depths Belushi would've sunk too with his drug habits sucking his money dry like it would have.

I used to have that and it was pretty awesome, though I don't recall it being post-apocalypse. I'll see if I can dig it up, but maybe someone was cool enough to post it on the web.

I would see a live action version of Dexter's Lab, though I would prefer a cartoon. The rest are awful though.

Hmmm, I shut it off at the 1:30 mark out of lame boredom. That was patently unfunny. However, I did find out what kind of idiot will be paying money to see Yogi Bear in theaters: YOU.

I doubt I'll go to the theater to see it, but I'll watch it at some point. Justin Timberlake makes me laugh. The commericials he did with Peyton Manning and his SNL appearances are all pretty funny to me, so I'll see what he can do with this.

I guess I could have made it clearer. The new ones. They were trash. I didn't even finish watching the "G.I. Joe" movie.

Alivin was so cool, he didn't need sunglasses.

AND, I don't see what the problem is with the Yogi Bear rehash. It didn't look any worse than Wall-E. I'll go see it.

Hell, why not trying to treat kids with a little respect, not some shiat CGI, Poochyfied, lump of crap that just makes anyone who remembers the character sad for everyone who has to "act" in this?

A couple of reasons:

The parents likely *do* know who Yogi Bear is, and they are the ones paying for the tickets. There's a reason why all of 80's properties are making a comeback in a big way -- they are ideas that were known to be successful in their time so hopefully lightning will strike twice, plus the parents will buy into it out of nostalgia.

This looks relatively harmless for a kids film -- though Yogi's voice is just aweful and way too forced.


I agree with this assessment and, to add, think Timberlake does and outstanding Boo-Boo.

What is retarded about Sponge Bob? It is a pretty straight forward cartoon.

Sienna Millar rockin' the Baroness outfit was the one saving grace of that film. I'll even give her a pass for not having an accent and the whole retarded former girlfriend of Duke/brother to Cobra Commander (who posed for 90% of the film as Dr. Mindbender) sub plot.

Well... Snake Eyes was pretty cool. But minus points for giving his mask a 'mouth' and killing off Storm Shadow in the first damn film.
 
2010-07-29 10:37:30 AM
And the plot? "Jellystone park is losing money so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell off the land. And its up to Yogi to stop it"

/did you know Yogi was given a collar so they could animate the head and keep the body still, reducing the necessary frames from 12k to 2k.
//and Yogi is used as a training device for UJCIS (a criminal record database in Utah). If you run him for warrants, it comes back with Rape, Homicide and Theft of Picnic Baskets.
 
2010-07-29 10:43:05 AM
Could be the worst voice acting since he did caddyshack 2.

and that was the worst sounding character ever. EVER.

That's comedy gold, right there. They should work it into the movie.

This...I was actually impressed by Timberlake's voice acting. Was not expecting that.

shivashakti: I feel so bad for Dan Aykroyd. If he's resorting to this, things must be very bad.

I couldn't agree more.

I'm waiting to see if he'll make a cameo in Zombieland 2 and have hte exact same line pitched to him that Bill Murray did.

"Got any regrets?"

and Akroyd's response will most likely be "Yogi Bear"
 
2010-07-29 11:26:51 AM
I actually wondered, before watching this, if they would do the cliche, "hip" dancing to some bad music.

They did.
 
2010-07-29 11:27:23 AM
If these types of movies were made for their original audiences, with a more adult approach, it could be great. Alas, none of the rights holders have balls.

I assumed all their voices were run through a digital grinder, much like his albums.

I liked the live-action Flinstones movie as a kid. I mean, maybe if I saw a preview for that now I'd think, "holy shiat, this looks retarded."

I guess the person who brought up the fact that this is, in fact, being made for five year olds, is right.

You know, I can understand the rape and homicide, but theft of pic-a-nic baskets? That's just going too far.
 
2010-07-29 11:33:55 AM
I haven't read the entire thread so I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this but..
Michael Caine said it best when commenting on Jaws 4. I'm paraphrasing, but he said something like "I've never see it and I'm sure it's bloody awful, but I have seen the house it built."

So what if Aykroyd is doing this crap. Maybe it'll buy him something nice.
 
2010-07-29 11:38:40 AM
At least it's not another super hero movie.

jbtilley: Fano: I mean, I know there's Boomerang... but why would children these days know much of anything about Hanna-Barbera characters?

I didn't even like Hanna-Barbera as a kid... of course this was in the G.I. Joe/Transformers era, so there was competition. As a kid I only watched HB cartoons because the only other options were Soul Train, the news, or going outside. My wife even has a sarcastic saying from her childhood. That's as funny as the Laff-a-Lympics.

No surprise that a modern movie based on something that wasn't all that entertaining to begin with looks even worse than the source material.

/This movie looks like it will be as entertaining as the GI Joe and Transformers movies


You sound about like me. Whippersnappers today don't know that other than saturday morning cartoons and what you could pray for before nickelodeon changed to its nick at nite programming, was that you pretty much had to watch hanna-barbera (usa cartooooon express) if you wanted to watch cartoons. Luckily at least looney tunes stayed in rotation during the 80s, but I don't know how many crappy reruns of the hanna-barbera formula I had to watch - all the iterations of wacky crime solving teenagers? Animation ghetto? Bleh.

2010-07-29 11:55:29 AM
My goodness does this look horrible. I will say that Timberlake appears to do a decent Boo-Boo voice, which is kind of shocking.

Or better yet: live-action VENTURE BROS.
