Sterling Holloway is one of my favorite character actors

"Wreck it" is our youth?
 
2013-04-05 08:26:15 PM
"Hiss! Stop hissing in my ear!"

One of my favorites.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: "Wreck it" is our youth?


Youth is a state of mind, not a number!

Fails without Paul Winchell as Dick Dastardly and John Byner as the Aardvark.
 
2013-04-05 09:34:07 PM
Sterling Holloway was also Winnie the Pooh

//also about the only one from my youth. subby must be 12

I need to watch Robin Hood again. That movie is so awesome.

Headline is a train wreck.

Sterling Holloway was great.

And this:

I just watched 'The Incredibles' the other night and was thinking that Syndrome was voiced by Steve Zahn.


Also: Paul Winchell as 'Tigger'.

very bad secret - Disney modeled their characters features after the voice actors, to make facial movements line up with vocal characteristics

Wash was King Candy? This must be what going mad feels like.

#22 fits well to and is not a Disney character. Evidently they don't have a monopoly on it.
 
2013-04-05 10:04:26 PM
Also: Jim Cummings. He is your childhood.

Darkwing Duck. Monteray Jack. The Shredder. Pete. Winnie the Pooh (and he's also taken over Tigger). Bonkers. Fuzzy Lumpkins. Don Karnage. Lurch. Morroco Mole. Sat-Am Sonic's Robotnik (I.e., the actually EVIL Robotnik), Taz. Razoul. Psycrow.Bob The Killer Goldfish. THE MASTER (from fallout), Beowulf (from mighty max)

MINSC THE BARBARIAN.
(GO FOR THE EYES BOO, GO FOR THE EYEEEESSS!!!)

And.. so, so much more.

He also apparently calls sick kids in children's hospitals using his Winnie The Pooh voice. He's not paid to do this, he just does it.

I swear, if certain friends of mine ever become very ill, I'm going to see if I can get him to call them as Minsc.

the dizzle: Wash was King Candy? This must be what going mad feels like.


That was such an amazingly good movie. Even without the videogame references, just... the foreshadowing alone was actually masterfully done. They laid everything out for you to figure things out in advance (I think you even got full views of the Sugar Rush arcade cabinet!), but didn't necessarily point flashing arrows at anything. Everything was foreshadowed, almost nothing was asspulled, just.. REALLY well done.
 
2013-04-05 10:08:39 PM
16. Madame Medusa from The Rescuers, Geraldine Page .. I'm not going to lie, I barely remember that movie.

(Now, the sequel? That was goddamn amazing. =) )

Exactly how I feel.

Again, exactly how I feel. What is amusing is the childish appearance of the film lead me to be genuinely surprised all the way until the reveal, which on second view is ridiculous cause latter in the movie had some obvious indicators.

Yeah, the reveal was definately an "Oh. fark!" Moment for me.

This, I'm almost 30 and when I saw it in the theatre with my then girlfriend, we both mimicked Ralph and Felix's "NO WAI!" at the big reveal.

And we weren't the only ones in the theatre that did this. Almost everyone who reacted verbally was over the age of 20.

James Woods was the perfect Hades

/Disney Hades at least
//probably some mythological problems
 
2013-04-05 10:29:17 PM
Most of those were movies where I took the sons and daughters of my nefewes and neices to see them.

Yep, second generation of being the "cool" uncle.

Ensuring there will be a song and some dancing when I croak.

Well, they hit my fave three: Robin Hood, Jungle Book, Sword in the Stone.
 
2013-04-05 10:51:42 PM
The Great Mouse Detective was always my favorite (I have always loved Sherlock Holmes). Ratigan was the best- how many other Disney villains order their minions to be viciously eaten? That will always be my favorite Vincent Price role.

Agarista: Well, they hit my fave three: Robin Hood, Jungle Book, Sword in the Stone.


Phil Harris was by far my favorite, particularly in Jungle book.
It was Phil Harris who said "I can't die until the government finds a safe place to bury my liver."

The Emperor's New Groove is one of my favorite Disney movies.  It's also one of the most underrated. And Eartha Kitt was just delightfully evil in it.

Hunchback of Notredame bad guy scared the crap out of me and I was in my late 20's.

I know he's supposed to be drawn differently, but every time I saw Hades in that movie my brain reinterpreted it to be James Woods with pointy teeth and blue fire for hair.  I don't mean looked like, I mean literally just James Woods.  Like the real Hades retired and James Woods' agent was like "Jamie, bubbelah, do I have a gig for you.  Long engagement, great benefits, and the perks, oy..."

King Candy is a leaf on the wind?
 
2013-04-06 12:01:49 AM
Wreck It Ralph is a fantastic movie. One of the ones you know will be a classic and not because of the kids.  It's nostalgia wrapped around a leaf in the wind with a couple of damned fine life lessons.
 
2013-04-06 12:20:37 AM
I wish Ken Page would do more voice acting, while I love all of A Nightmare Before Christmas, his voice and particularly the Oogie Boogie song stand out.

Darkwing Duck. Monteray Jack. The Shredder. Pete. Winnie the Pooh (and he's also taken over Tigger). Bonkers. Fuzzy Lumpkins. Don Karnage. Lurch. Morroco Mole. Sat-Am Sonic's Robotnik (I.e., the actually EVIL Robotnik), Taz. Razoul. Psycrow.Bob The Killer Goldfish. THE MASTER (from fallout), Beowulf (from mighty max)


I can't speak for any of those others, but Shredder was voiced by James Avery, the uncle from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

I'm doing a playthrough of Kingdom Hearts II at the moment, and every time I hear Hades, I keep flashing back to being told to steal a plane off of an aircraft carrier in San Fierro.
