That should read 'thankfully not involved'...

I don't know what the concept is, but I have always enjoyed the look of Día de los Muertos celebrations. Plus I like sugar skulls.

So, Grim Fandango gets a movie?

I'm there.

Can it at least have Danny Elfman's ponderous circus music?

fark, I was hoping subby was talking about a Dawn of the Dead sequel/Day of the Dead remake (yes I know there are many terrible knock off sequals already).

Me too.

Day of the dead had a lot they could improve on.

Hey, everybody! Look at how cool subby and his followers are! They don't like popular things! Isn't that awesome?

Depp and Tim Burton are to busy riding the "remake" train to do something original.

I think even the most devout fans of Burton have to be getting bored with Johnny Depp-Tim Burton-Helena Bonham Carter hashes.

Yup. Hell, just take the plot from Grim Fandango. That game was soooooo good.

Oh. Still,I would have LOVED an interpretation.

Subby didn't mention disliking Burton or Depp, only surprise they weren't involved, the Weeners was what mentioned their lack involvement being a good thing.

I guess you could say that the headline implies that, but that's a pretty quick kneejerk defense you've got. I don't think Depp or Burton need anyone to defend them from possible insults, they probably can't hear any insults from on top of the pile of money they've made.

that's too bad that we'll never get The Nightmare Before the Day of the Dead...

We'll both be long dead before Pixar does an R rated movie. It would be cool, 'resident evil: degeneration' was entertaining.

This is actually quite offensive to people familiar with Mexican Halloween as a sexual position.

I'd love a sequel, but I've also got to respect Bird for flat out saying that he wouldn't make one without a story worth making.

If only Pixar would make a horror movie.

Me too. This game was imaginative, interesting and had a really cool artistic sense to it. I still have it and now, dammit, I will have to try and play it again.

I play it through once every couple years, and every time I forget how to solve it.

They made a movie with realistic water (nemo), realistic fur (Monsters Inc), realistic food (Ratatouieeiklleieeork) etc.. but have they made a movie with realistic CG skin that reacts realisticly to another's skin? Hey Pixar, you know what to do... bow chicka bow wow
