    good grief, the special effects look atrocious

    like the Prince Ali parade shot, the shot of Aladdin on the pillar in the Cave of Wonders, and the Will Smith genie effects seriously look like 90s made for tv movie level.

    I mean they already had brown faced extras so it was already pretty fucked even before that

    I keep forgetting about this, which is fucked up in and of itself!

    I know people deeply love Farscape, and I wish i could put myself in whatever headspace I needed to be to get there

    but my god every time ive watched it it feels like the fake sci fi show theyd be obsessed with in big bang or something

    it's very hit or miss even when it is good, and the first season is mostly abysmal, but every now and again it just works in this way that just has never been replicated.

    the answer to this is "yes" if you have any favorite disney movie, yeah

    Jungle Book is one of my favorite Disney movies and I thought the live action version was great!

    Aladdin is one of my favorites too though and yikes.

    I thought jungle book was fine.

    Even without the brownface, Aladdin looks dire. I wonder if they are using unfinished effects for whatever reason.

    Just watched Thunder Road. The short is a favourite of mine, and I love a lot of Jim Cummings’ other shorts, but the feature didn’t blow me away. A really great central performance, and the big scenes that really need to work all land, but it didn’t quite add up to me. Still, I’m looking forward to whatever he makes next, because when he’s on, he’s really on.

    If you haven’t seen the short, I really recommend it. It’s basically a perfect movie.

    It's utterly uncool, the article I read it was mostly stunt-people and animal specialists. Disney could have found people they wanted on that side of the camera, but didn't. It's all a bunch of bullshit.

    I was just thinking about Happy Death Day, what with the new one coming out soon. The structure of that flick lets it do a really cool, really clever thing

    A character gets to go from being a "first dead in a slasher" archetype to a final girl. That's pretty neat.

    i was thinking i hope it did because maybe disney would pump the breaks on these god awful live action remakes but... honestly i know that won't happen and you're right they probably will blame that.

    bad all around i guess.

    Even if Aladdin flops, that Lion King remake is going to make all the money in the world.

    Polar is an extremely frustrating movie.

    It has some decent action scenes smashed in amongst the most 00s garbage of a story.

    Movie, you had one job. Mads as Big Boss.

    HOW DID YOU SCREW THAT UP?

    Farscape isn't popular enough to be referenced on Big Bang Theory.

    I figure the more obscure it is (if it is), the higher the chance it'd be referenced in the Big Bang Theory.

    I don't watch Big Bang but have they referenced: Non racist Buck Rogers? 40k? Firefly? Starship troopers? Conan? Many others since I don't feel like vaguely going on

    Farscape is Sheldon's favorite tv show of all time. Numerous episodes revolve around his quest for merch from the show. In fact, I believe most of America knows Farscape only through the lens of the hit sitcom, the Big Bang Theory.
