Is this about the new not-sexy animated bunny again?
 
2021-07-16 5:45:58 PM  
I read that as "Go see the movie". Thanks!

I saw the trailer, saw them go from 2D to 3D animated characters and said nope.

He is a mouthpiece for Communist China so he can fark right off.

Now everyone will want to see it, because someone from the other tribe hates it.  Smart marketing!

My 9yo son loved it, for whatever that's worth.

Only someone who supports a low-life, moronic, ideology would consider this movie an "abomination".

That's who is supposed to like it.

Guys, it doesn't matter if you were 9 when the Michael Jordan version came out. Kids are the target audience, not you.

What's bizarre is that the character was so blatantly sexualized by the original animators in the first place. It's like they hired Ralph Bakshi to do the character design.

They must have decided that the world needed more Furries, and Cheetara just wasn't doing enough to recruit for the cause.

Fair enough. I stand corrected.

I was 9 when the original came out, and I loved it.

It doesn't age well, but the appeal for a young audience with bright colors and animated characters can still get the young crowd.

[YouTube video: The Lola Bunny Controversy (and why people need to chill)]


I admit, I skipped around in that video because I don't care nearly enough to listen to some nerd talk about a cartoon rabbit for twenty minutes. But he acknowledges that the original design was intentionally sexed up, she gets literally howled at like she's a Tex Avery pinup girl, and the animation examples show her strutting and posing in ways very similar to a different bunny's girlfriend, Jessica Rabbit. The director of the new Space Jam had said early on that the character was uncomfortably oversexualized, and one of his goals in taking the project was to dial that way down. Which is a smart impulse for toy sales, because if I remember right, I think McDonalds refused to include Lola in the Happy Meals because they thought she looked too young and too hot to be hanging around with the elder Bugs.

Personally I think the "controversy" over that, like many of these supposed widespread outrages over a movie, has been greatly exaggerated by the media. Millions of people aren't wailing and screaming because her look was changed, because it's doubtful that millions of people were all that excited by the prospect of a Space Jam sequel to begin with. This smacks of entertainment reporters cherrypicking a handful of ramblings off of Twitter and blowing it up into national news.

* I meant the original 90s era Happy Meals, of course. I'm sure McDs will have no problem with the redesigned character.

Imagine if your crowning journalistic achievement was dunking on Space Jam 2, ironically a basketball movie best known for the great sexy bunny debate.

Rewatching it as a teenager I just kinda thought she was a callback to crossdressin' femme fatale Bugs.

Don't plan on watching the new version. Mostly because I don't like LeBron or his bullshiat.

Funnily enough, WB wanted her drawn more curvy in the original because her initial design did just look like Bugs in drag. They just took it too far into Red Hot Riding Hood territory.

I never saw the first one, but would consider seeing this new one. Reviews from critics are completely useless in a case like this. The movie kind of depends on the mood of the audience at the time that they saw it.
 
2021-07-17 8:51:07 AM  
I tried to watch it last night got about half way and turned it off. I don't watch basketball but James was just not making this movie work. He has zero charisma and maybe it was supposed to be made this way but he seemed pissed at his family for existing even though they say he was a family man. Maybe I'd I could have jerked it to a rabbit it would have been better but I barely made it to him meeting bugs.

More like we don't need the reviews because we've seen the trailers, and the humor on display is not good. The cringeworthy Porky Pig rap scene, aka "some crusty old out-of-touch guy's idea of what the kids today think is cool", told me all I needed to know about this one.

That and being reminded that Cleveland has won something in the last fifty years were the two worst parts of this movie.

I don't think college is necessary for the majority of today's population but Lebron could've really used further education.
 
2021-07-17 10:37:46 AM  
Just finished it. While I don't think it is an abomination it is still garbage. None of the charm from the original is here. And while I didn't care that much for the first one at least it had its moments. This one I will NEVER watch again.

Have you suffered a brain injury recently?

Thread is about a movie. I said I don't plan on seeing it because I don't really care for LeBron. Then you insinuated I'm ok with cops killing black people.

Just watched it. I went in fairly blind and knew I'd already be watching this anyways good or bad. I knew it had LeBron but I'm indifferent to him. I like this more than I liked the original but I don't think I'd ever throw it back on to watch again as another home movie night.

/Don't expect this movie to be one that's going to make you laugh
