Spoiler alert: The first Space Jam wasn't that great.

thatguyoverthere70: Spoiler alert: The first Space Jam wasn't that great.


Spoiler alert:  my kids are already guessing the first Space Jam will be better than the new one, not terribly mad about the Cinema Sins video of the first film, still in shock that Michael Jordan is real.

I've never even watched the first..

I was Born in 86, was a huge bball kid and still, nope..

I guess it's time to release another Air Bud sequel.

This one looks less like it was shot on pro-sumer equipment than the first one did, and the animation of the Tunes looks to be pretty well done, but YIKES have the trailers been bad. Also: why does Bugs Bunny sound more like Yakko Warner than Bugs Bunny now?

Obvious tag got cut during preseason camp?

That's why critic reviews for this one are useless.
If you were a kid when the first movie came out, guess what? You're not the target audience for this one.
And you're not going to feel the same way about this movie at 35 that you did about the first one when you were 10. Nostalgia makes things seem better than they really were (see Star Wars for reference).

Will Lebron give China a shoutout?

So, your hatred of Warner Brothers cartoons runs that deep, eh?

Jordan would have shot it himself, LeBron passed it to Malcolm D. Lee

A movie starring basketball players and marketed for children isn't Oscar-worthy?  Shocking.  It's not supposed to be.  It's like critiquing the lyrics of a club song.  That's not the point.
 
2021-07-15 4:52:47 PM  
It looks like basketball Ready Player One.

I owned a T-shirt with Taz on it because, I liked the Tasmanian devil. Yet, I saw it twice because, we taped it off of HBO and my younger brother loved it. Yet, couldn't stand it then and can't stand it now. Same for this . Yet, it is not for me. The thing that annoys me more about this product though is you have a full I.P. catalogue of WB characters in the background "reacting" to the game.
/again not for me.

"A New Legacy is the long-awaited sequel to 1996 hit Space Jam"

No one was waiting for this.

LOL, do rural kids these days still hang out and drink in their cars as much as we did do you think? I spent many an evening polishing off cases of big mouth in the back seat of a Camaro or Mustang.

Space Jam was a feature length commercial, and felt exactly like it. What the hell were people expecting here?

Bron's teammates have no clue how to shoot the ball and he gives up to go sulk in the locker room at one point in the middle of the big game?

How exactly is this movie fictional?
 
2021-07-15 7:24:00 PM  
It's a 25 year late cash grab reboot of a movie that wasn't a big hit to start with. No shiat that it is falling flat.

They've been doing commercials (I forget for what) with that guy doing the voice and yeah, it's horrendous.

Eric Bauza, who does it for the Looney Tunes show on HBO MAX is wonderful at it.  I have no idea why they didn't have him do bugs for the movie.  He voices a bunch of other characters though...

Especially when HBO max has a production budget of $50 per show.

Not really a fan of critic takes but it's at 38% in critic consensus on Rotten Tomatoes; original sits at 44% critic score. I don't have any fond memories of watching the first one but I'll probably watch this one as well.

He doesn't know the producers of this one.

As will I, with my kids.  My idea was to watch it in a marathon with the first one, but they said, "Dad, we've seen the first one six thousand times."  They also know just from the trailer that this is not going to be as good.

Uh, the original one was wildly successful.

And this article is a pre-release review so there's no falling flat (yet).
