Caught it yesterday, was pleasantly surprised. Can't believe Disney went that dark with it.

It was a charming film and I liked it.  They could have fun with another.  Only criticism was insufficient Gadget.

I've met Tress MacNeille.  It was after the Animaniacs Live! proof of concept concert with the Colorado Symphony in Denver several years ago.  I'm not usually star struck, but I was a bit tongue tied, but at the same time, I'm not sure Ms. MacNeille was expecting how strong the reaction to the show was.  It was the first time they'd done it, she wasn't announced.  It was a great night, though.

I saw the trailer, and the fact that one is CG and the other is a toon is a bit jarring. The whole thing just looks like Who Framed Roger Rabbit? for a new generation. And that's okay. It seems to be getting good reviews.

I was gonna skip it, but seeing that they brought back "ugly" Sonic voiced by Tim Robinson is drawing to see it at least once.

I watched it Sunday and really enjoyed it.

I did watch the show when I was a kid, but I barely remember it. I remember the NES game much better (great game). I was pleased they did show the NES game in the movie. A 90s kid like me appreciates little touches like that.

They were obviously going for a modern Roger Rabbit (especially with the final villain's last form being extra weird), but it somehow didn't come off as impressive as Roger Rabbit's integration with "real" things. There are almost no moments of "how the fark did they do that?" in CnD.

The movie literally -- not figuratively, but literally -- equates copyright infringement with human trafficking and slave labor.

Also, why get Eric Bana to voice Monterey Jack when they had the original voice of him in the movie as other characters? I can't imagine there was one person who wasn't going to see this movie until they heard Eric Bana was in it.

100%. I saw this on twitter earlier, and it was quite the rabbit hole.

Richard Williams died a year or two back, for one, why bother figuring out practical effects when you can just use CG for the other. I don't really blame them for the latter, but Williams was farking crazy in the best kind of way

I watched this with my kids yesterday. Waaaaay darker than I thought it was going to be. I almost spat out my ginger ale when they panned over to Mr. Natural dancing around in front of a shop. Wtf!

I got a chuckle out of Dip actually showing up in the movie.

Add me to the list of those who enjoyed it. It was no Roger Rabbit, but fun anyway.

They even had an easter egg for WFRR: look for the "dip".

/Also, Senator Butthead.

It's presented in the same way that commercial years ago said that buying heroin and cocaine directly supported terrorists and criminal cartels.

I liked it though.

Classic soundtrack.

Never got much into the second game, though.

I saw the trailer for it and it looks pretty cool I liked the different graphical aspects. I'll check it out.

Probably because in the 34 years since WFRR we've gotten pretty accustomed to seeing CGI characters integrated into live action footage.

But usually it's not integrated that great. Most often, it's CGI character interacting with CGI environmental element.

Not always, though. Some of the practical effects in Ghostbusters Afterlife where CGI ghosts interact with physical objects (like the truck) are really impressive.

That was my one issue. Bit of a contrast with Roger Rabbit.

I'm basically in on everything done by The Lonely Island...and was pleasantly surprised it was this good. :)
 
2022-05-23 5:47:59 PM  
Yes, much better than it had any reason to be. Not every joke landed, and there was a bit of a Family Guy/Manatee feel to some of the references. But it was still a ton of fun.

Both Ugly Sonic and LEGO Misérables were great jokes.

So how is the Russian Gadget cult doing with this news?
 
2022-05-23 8:03:47 PM  
There were so many references, but it didn't give most of them any air to breathe, which is the perfect way to do them. Instead of being obnoxious and in the way, they are just pleasant little distractions. And good god they are everywhere. I think freeze framers will still be finding new references for a couple of years.

It was a lot of fun, but the movie just barely outlasts its premise. If they explored it any deeper than they have already, it would collapse, just like the human shenanigans in the Lego Movie 2.

If they make another one, they need to use a different Disney Afternoon show and they need to wait at least 5 years.

/neither of those things will happen
//Lego Les Mis would be so damn good.
 
2022-05-23 8:16:25 PM  
I'm disappointed that the script never mentioned Gadget's Russian cult. Talk about a wasted opportunity.

I kind of wonder if we can regard this movie to be set in the Roger Rabbitverse.

They're literally dancing with Roger Rabbit at a party.  And mention Jessica Rabbit when they're in the back of a van.

Ok, so I was caught by surprise when I saw the coverage of this movie - I had no idea it was a thing.

My true love for cartoons will always be Termite Terrace (what can I say?  Kid of the Sixties here!), but I also welcomed their descendants - Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and stuff like Earthworm Jim, Freakazoid and the like.

Of the Disney stuff, I think my favorite was Tale Spin, because, hey, I love flying.  Duck Tales was a close second, and Rescue Rangers was an even closer third.  I *really* appreciated the fact that Darkwing Duck actually did have something on the ball - I got *so* sick and tired of the trope that the 'good guys' had to be completely useless incompetents.  (Sorry, Scatman, but Hong Kong Phooey rates a big *PFUI* from me.)

Which is a too-long-winded way of telling you where I'm coming from.

I saw the news about this movie, Paul Rudd's bit drew me in, and I watched it this evening.

I liked it.

"You will believe a movie can consist of nothing but fan service and in-jokes - and still be a lot of fun!"

Yes, there were some parts I didn't like.  Yes, a few of the gags fell flat.  I don't mind - I had Fun!

And I was very happy to see that everyone got invited to this party.

That's got to be in the sequel.  Maybe even having Gadget making a passing message to it.

"Yeah, I've had my share of crazy fans, Dale.  Well, more like a cult, actually.  It got weird..."
"You got pretty big in Japan too, Gadget."
"...don't mention Japan."
