  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.
    August 27, 2018, 03:19:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.
    August 27, 2018, 03:09:15 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

What Cartoon Would Be A Good Live Action Movie?
« on: July 21, 2016, 08:46:10 am »
Setting aside Archie (if they ever did it right), I'd go for Archer, or better yet, The Herculoids. The CGI alone could be cool. Zok, Igoo, Tundro, and the biggest challenge, Gloop and Gleep, would be awesome. Get a great script, of course. Space Ghost and (not Harvey) Birdman could have potential. Mightor? Possible. Jonny Quest should have been had a movie a while back. Discuss! :)

There's so many.

Just for scope, characters, and actions, I'll go Robotech.

Yeah! Why hasn't there been a Jonny Quest movie? That cartoon with Sherman and Peabody would be pretty cool as a movie.  I guess you could give the dog peanut butter to make its mouth move.  Sorry Peta.

I have to go with Clutch Cargo.

There were some great stories with Clutch, Spinner and Paddlefoot. The strange Syncro-Vox system gave the limited animation efforts a unique look with the inserted film of their lips moving. Strange stuff, but fun stuff. it would be a very interesting live action movie. Maybe the lips could be animated!

Second choice: anyone remember Colonel Bleep?

There already was a Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie (and a Dudley Do-Right movie, an Adventures of Bullwinkle & Rocky movie, and even a Boris & Natasha movie). Mr. Peabody & Sherman was all-CGI, Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle was live-action with CGI characters, and the others strictly live-action. Be careful what you wish for, though -- let's not forget they turned Speed Racer into a live-action movie (I actually saw that one in a theater, and it felt like being trapped inside a pinball game). I can't help but think Hollywood would completely mess up something like Jonny Quest, losing absolutely everything that made it cool as a cartoon in the first place. The Scooby-Doo movies weren't bad (for what they were), but for the most part that's more the exception than the rule. Most movies based on cartoons seem to turn out really badly. I guess if I had to pick one, I'd say Dynomutt.

Ok, sorry.  Not a movie person.  Didn't know Sherman and Peabody were already a movie.  What about that Penguin and walrus? How about that old dude who spins a globe and tells tall tales of his adventures? I think he might be a tippler.  :)

Tennessee Tuxedo & Chumly (Tennessee, the penguin, was voiced by Don Adams of "Get Smart" fame), and The World of Commander McBragg was the old dude who spins a globe -- "In his world, he's a king! He can do anything! Or so says the brag of McBragg". I think the only "insert" cartoons you missed were Klondike Kat ("I'll make mince-meat out of that mouse!") and the Go-Go Gophers, all of which have remained untouched by feature films. The exception to that bunch was the live-action UNDERDOG feature (made by Disney no less), which apart from filching some of the original character names (Polly Purebread and Simon Bar Sinister), had little to do with the cartoon. All of those original cartoons (along with The King Leonardo and Odie Show, which had as insert cartoons The Hunter and Tudor Turtle) were Total Television productions, and often get confused with the Jay Ward productions like Rocky & Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, and George of the Jungle (who also had a live action movie) -- chiefly because both companies used the same Mexican animation studio to do the actual animation (scripts, storyboards, character design, music and voice acting were all handled by Jay Ward and Total Television, respectively).
