    Bob Iger Discusses Disney History vs. Innovation

    I don't think Iger hates the classics at all. He enjoys them just as much as we do, but he is liable to be led astray by certain people, especially if an idea seems like "the next evolutional step."

    Bob Iger Discusses Disney History vs. Innovation

    Fans who accept Iger's Disney are still Disney fans, just as much as other fans. You have to experiment in order to stay relevant and alive, and that includes going against the grain. Iger was was in this regard. Of course, like anything, there's the potential to go too far with it, and there is...

    News Lasseter taking leave of absence

    Who are you referring to, Billy Bob Thornton? If so, what's he done?

    Surprise, surprise! The Nutcracker movie stinks.

    Oz was actually really good, and it was quite profitable. But none of those other films really matched it, and it shows. Will Disney ever give up coming up with new stories and new takes on stories that aren't associated with them? Of course not, but they certainly are having a far more...

    Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story

    Actually, I am discussing. I just happen to be blunt about it and am willing to call a spade a spade.

    Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story

    The OT are the first films I saw. I remember the special editions when they came out in 1997. Everyone was cheering and had a great time. The same held true when I saw the prequels, and it continued in the current era. The general public, by and large, has accepted these films with open arms and...

    Surprise, surprise! The Nutcracker movie stinks.

    Another sign Alan Horn's leadership is utterly failing. Given that the live-action division has favored nation status because of Horn running that division while simultaneously being the chairman, it really shows. The successful films in that umbrella are ones he has virtually no say on, and the...

    Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story

    Star Wars is doing just fine, thank you. They are not "chasing the Michael Bay method," they care very much about the narrative and how it builds together. Those of you who are complaining, saying "Star Wars is ruined" and "SJW libtards are suck the joy of everything" can't see it because you...

    Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story

    Personally, I feel Kurtz's role wasn't as big as many have posited. Many have just taken comments from the interviews he gave and inflated his role in their minds, while additionally bludgeoning Lucas. This isn't to take away from what Kurtz did, of course, but to call him "the white knight that...

    Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story

    You know, the massive irony is that the sequel trilogy is, in a lot of respects, following what Gary Kurtz wanted Return of the Jedi to be. With Han dead, Leia basically thrust in a major position of leadership and picking up the pieces, and a solitary Luke, broken and lonely, and yet quite...

    James Cameron, Avatar, Alien 5 and more

    Sigourney Weaver was recently interviewed. During it, she commented on the upcoming Avatar sequels and the shuttering of Neill Blomkamp's planned Alien film by Fox. https://screenrant.com/alien-5-blomkamp-james-cameron-sigourney-weaver/ It's fair to say that when the acquisition is finished...

    Blast From The Past-Could Port Charles Have Succeeded?

    During its run from June 1997 to October 2003, the 30-minute General Hospital spinoff series Port Charles was a favorite of the critics, but never was the breakaway hit that ABC had longed for. In its attempt to fill the slot that belonged to The City and compete directly with The Young & the...

    James Gunn - Suicide Squad

    If they reversed course and apologized, that would actually help. Clearly, much of the reaction they had dealt with worries about being called hypocrites by people conflating the situation with Roseanne, treating it as the same when it isn't. But they've already lost that battle, because...

    James Gunn - Suicide Squad

    Still feeling comfortable with your decision, Mr. Horn? Think you did the right thing in not simply having a temporary suspension and investigating, or just saying "we believed him then, and we believe him now?" And do you truly feel that you were right in letting this stand, Mr. Iger? That you...

    Original Epcot In 2018

    I agree very much. Things that are exciting are needed to keep things alive and the blood flowing. That said, I also fully understand where the purists are coming from. I think that if Epcot has a foot in both worlds, to expand and return to some educational content, while adding more thrill...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Ep 8). SPOILERS. Plot points revealed and discussed.

    Plinkett and Red Letter Media should depart from the corners of the Internet from whence they came. There is nothing remotely resembling analysis in any of their reviews, even when they actually like what they're talking about. Vacuous, superficial looks with misinformation, inventing problems...

    Super Early Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Thread

    Yeah, well I have no respect for Alan Horn. Why does he get to head the live action films, and why is he the superior to Kevin Feige, Kathleen Kennedy, Pete Docter and Jennifer Lee? Shouldn't they and Horn have autonomy and only report to Iger and the board?

    Super Early Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Thread

    Well, I hope this will give them all a chance to actually assess options and the movement to rehire Gunn grows in strength to a point that it can't be ignored. Likewise, I think there simply is no place for Alan Horn at Disney any longer, given how much he has botched crisis after crisis in the...

    Ground fires for Disney's next investors call?

    Of course the big question is whether new films would be made? I think, for example, that it's high time for a new Alien film, that isn't AvP or part of Ridley Scott's plan to continue the story from Alien: Covenant. For example, Disney would do well reviving Neill Blomkamp's planned film and...
