    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    I will say, Raya and the Last Dragon was a movie that was significantly enhanced by the big screen experience. The movie does have flaws with it's dialogue and fumbling the message of "trust" but on the big screen the visuals and locations really popped out. I was swept in the spectacle of it...

    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    When do you think Disney would get to the point where they could release such a film without it significantly hurting the box office? I personally think sometime in the mid-2030s, unless the U.S. has a major rollback of LGBTQ rights in the next decade (you never can take progress as a given...

    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    Did you and your spouse see Nimona by any chance? That was an animated movie (that was ORIGINALLY going to be released by Disney before they dropped it) that I feel has far better LGBTQ representation than anything the Walt Disney Company has put out.

    Wade says "her girlfriend" which usually refers to a female gender. This goes back to my point that you would have no idea the character was nonbinary if not said so by an actor in the real world.

    A few things: 1. Elemental is an infinitely better movie than Strange World 2. No one would know the character in Elemental who has maybe one line was nonbinary if not for the voice actor confirming so, wheraz Ethan's crush on Diazo is explicitly stated numerous times in Strange World. I even...

    Well, eventually, somebody has to make the risky move to make progress happen. Even if it isn't financially rewarding in the short term, it helps pave way for future representation. I will somewhat agree, however, the way Disney has gone about LGBT inclusion has been clumsy from a business...

    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    I'm desperately hoping the Moana 2 situation turns out more like Toy Story 2 (which was originally meant to be direct-to-video) and less like Atlantis: Milo's Return (which was three episodes of an abandoned TV show hastily cobbled together in movie form). But I'm skeptical about the...

    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    Well if we absolutely MUST talk about the box office, I will say that I am happy with Inside Out 2's performance, because I love theatrical moviegoing and this is a much-needed win for theaters.

    There are many minorities that will betray their own kind because they desperately seek the approval of the bigoted society they are raised in. There are many gay or black people that could have internalized homophobia or racism, even if they are not conscious of it. I knew I was gay when I...

    Star Wars: The Acolyte

    You know what the set design of the Acolyte actually reminds me of? The Black Hole — that failed attempt by Disney in the late-70s to cash in on the Star Wars craze with their own sci fi movie. There's a very retro feel to the aesthetic of the Acolyte, although I can't tell whether it was...

    Star Wars: The Acolyte

    I do, which is why I'm surprised the Acolyte is so uniquely despised when I think it's better than a lot of the crap we've recently gotten. Although I don't think Ahsoka was "bad" as much as I think it was a huge mistake to make it a live-action show and so heavily relied upon the viewer...

    Star Wars: The Acolyte

    I personally like the Acolyte because of how different it feels from other Star Wars projects. Feels like a breath of fresh air and I've enjoyed it more than the Mandalorian season 3, Book of Boba Fett, Obi Wan and Ahsoka. But I can also understand why many fans feel it's simply "not Star...

    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    I think Lightyear and The Little Mermaid were the only Disney movies truly harmed financially by the negative publicity brought on by the anti-Disney/anti-diversity mob. Soul, Luca, Turning Red, Raya and the Last Dragon and Encanto were all harmed by the pandemic and Disney Plus. In an...

    At least with Splash Mountain, the word "splash" was enough of a warning that you might get wet.

    Tiana’s Bayou Adventure SPOILER Thread

    Is anyone annoyed by how almost every vlogger titles their video "HONEST review of Tiana's Bayou Adventure." Shouldn't honesty just be expected? And saying you are "honest" doesn't necessarily mean you are being honest. Just seems very clickbaity.

    Tiana’s Bayou Adventure SPOILER Thread

    While I am skeptical of a lot of people who seemed pre-determined to prefer the new one,I think it also just may highlight how people nowadays have much more of an emotional attachment to the Princess and the Frog characters than the Song of the South animated characters. While a lot of us...

    Inside Out 2

    It does, but I think people often overlook it because it's viewed as more of a "James Cameron" film than something Disney had an active hand in crafting. Disney distributes Avatar, but is much more hands-off with the property than they are Star Wars and Marvel.

    Inside Out 2

    I expect Turning Red will eventually get a resurgence similar to A Goofy Movie. That movie got mixed reviews critics (for reasons I absolutely do not stand, it's perfect) and didn't make that much money at the box office, but it did well on home video and is now highly regarded by the people...

    News Tiana's Bayou Adventure - latest details and construction progress

    They need to add info in the queue explaining that the bayou is cursed and has the tendency to randomly freeze all who enter. That will give the Imagineers leeway to explain away the non operating animatronics.
