    from Neil Gaiman's tumblr:
    I bought my niece Coraline as a gift. When I next saw her, I asked what she thought of it. She got about half-way through, then got so scared she wrapped it up in a blanket and put it in a shoe box. Then put the shobox in an empty toybox, then filled the toybox, locked it, and put it up in the attic. Which was then locked. Just thought I'd share that.
    I think that’s the most wonderfully sensible treatment of a book that scares you I’ve ever heard of.

    That sounds like something from Coraline ironically.

    I still remember everyone's reactions to Tangled before it actually came out, just based off its ad campaign. Because I saved them in a thread.

    Is Tangled a hentai movie where this girl has tentacles growing out of her head that she uses to force sex on a dude?

    The way most Pixar trailers are cut would suggest an equal level of stupidity
    It's like no one can make a dignified animated trailer, the producers have to scrounge for the most awful parts/basest jokes so they can make a compilation of the worst possible sort.

    What was that movie that came out after Madagascar but cribbed the 'zoo animals out of their comfort zone' idea?

    I didn't see it but it looked awful.

    Was it something like this?

    pDWlQ.jpg

    I actually really like this movie, if only for the scene where the squirrel drinks coffee and everything goes into slow motion

    But in general it was pretty decent for a non-Pixar animated film

    wasn't over the hedge a comic strip?


    i liked megamind, but that was largely because of Minion and Brad Pitt doing Bruce Campbell as Elvis as Superman
    i enjoyed it, but i felt it could have been a lot more fun based on the voice cast

    I don't know if I agree with this at all but I find the second Brave trailer (the one with dialog) to be pretty shitty myself. But their track record on the final product speaks for itself.

    The Pixar trailers where it's just original footage made just for the trailer (Mr. Incredible trying to get his belt on, Mike and Sully in the wrong bedroom) are usually way better than their more traditional trailers. Maybe they aren't as effective marketing for the wider audience, I dunno - I wish they'd go back to making them though.

    Yeah, I always liked when they made original footage just for the trailers.

    I thought there was some kind of rule against that though - I remember some kind of complaint that people though they were going to see that scene in the movie and complained when they didn't.

  • BedigunzBedigunz Registered User regular
    I think Pixar and Dreamworks (more DW than Pixar) feel they need to appeal to a wider audience who sees animation as "kids stuff" so they throw in the terrible jokes and in your face celebrity voice acting to gain the viewers who wouldn't normally watch an animated film

    god

    I remember that when I worked at the discount used/refurbished electronics store my stupid fucking asshole of a manager used to play DreamWork's Shark Tale on loop. He claimed we weren't allowed to bring movies in to play as demos, just in case the "Movie Inspector" came along and sued us for playing movies without a license (?). So it was Shark Tale, 4.5 times a day, every single day, for a period of about a year and a half.



    and this fucking song would play every single time and my manager would start singing and rapping along like the gigantic tool that he was

    and I would die

    Tangled is the perfect example of a movie with an incredibly misleading trailer. They should fire whoever was responsible for it because they made an amazing movie look shitty which I'm pretty sure is the opposite of their job description.

    i don't think pixar really goes for wild celebrity voice actors

    they get whoever is good for the role. and pretty much 100% of the time they're completely right about that person

    as for stupid jokes... ummmmmmm

  • DruhimDruhim Registered User, ClubPA regular
    I think all this bitching about trailers is pretty odd. I mean, you're complaining that trailers don't make films look as good as they are in some cases, but then some of you complain if a trailer makes a shitty film look compelling. Trailers are advertising. I know, this is fucking obvious. But if it's so obvious that trailers are advertising, why do you care so much about whether they make the film look good (or bad) enough? Like all advertising, you should take it with a big grain of salt. There are much better metrics for telling whether or not you might enjoy a film.

    I was worried about Larry the Cable Guy for Cars breaking that tradition, but they actually had him be their character instead of his.

    but like you said he actually did some acting instead of just "here is larry the cable guy's voice"

    and he actually did a good job, so that helps

    To me that's a major glaring difference between Dreamworks and Pixar.

    It seems that Pixar writes a character then thinks "who would fit into this voice"

    As opposed to Dreamworks who picks a mainstream actor and builds a character around that person (see Shrek and half the cast of Kung-Fu Panda)

    We already got a sort of sequel that they played before Beauty and the Beast 3D. Now that he's married Rapunzel, does that make him a prince-in-law?
