Justice League (2001)
Good, but Bats original and beyond are better
Seen the "Batman" series by WB in the 90's. Skipped the "Superman" series I didn't like his design it looked like Bats with super powers and the endless "Lois & Clark the new adventures of superman" reruns in my head the WB Supe didn't impress me.
I initially skipped the show but slowly I watched bits and pieces, then a whole episode and other one and other one.
I liked the pairing of Batman and Superman (which mixed with other heroes is not so bad), I don't read the comics. Justice League has good stories. It has character development, something that seems rare in today's TV cartoons. Animation is 2D fluid not some CGI crap toons are becoming more and more. Good voice cast on both good(Batman/Marsian) and the bad(Joker!!!!) characters.
Cats & Dogs (2001)
It's funny, silly beyond words. Enjoy it!
Cats and Dogs is one of those films that are to silly for words, if I had a dog with doghouse I would check for a secret button. Makes you wonder what are dogs barking at each other when they meet in the park or is that to much spotted dogs? Though the whole underground transport system to dog HQ went a bit far to believe. It reminded me of Bond. Hightech dog house, how did they think of it. Hilarious.
Saw it again on TV this week it wasn't as funny as the first time and probably would be even less funnier the third time. Favorite part: the house maid pampering Mr. Wiskers the I want to rule the world cat boss.
I've to agree that some of CGI effects where unrealistic and that's why I skipped on Garfield this year. Jurrasic Park Jeff Goldblum didn't have much of a role other then being inventor of the cure. I think that can be said of the whole Brody family though I enjoyed the scenes in the garden with the kid playing with the dog. The voice cast went pass me, didn't recognize one of the 'famous' actors.
See it, laugh and have a good time!
The Care Bears (1985)
After 20 years it's still good
Like most kids I watched every toon in the 80's. I enjoyed unique characters, the simple stories and fuzzy feeling of this series. It didn't appeal to me like the action series in the time. Unlike for example Transformers I've never seen a Care Bears rerun until last month.
One morning I stumbled on the series opening just having heard the theme song again recently I decided to watch for old time sake. The episode goes like this: It was the annual holiday or something cause a selected group of bears where to compete in a marathon. Some sort of villain, can't recall who exactly tried to sabotage the race and eventually the slowest, Lotsa Heart Elephant, won from the fasted Care Bear, Swift Heart Rabbit.
It still holds up today. Actually I had to check the credits to make sure it was the 80's series and not some 21th century remake.
Brother Bear (2003)
I haven't enjoyed a Disney so much in years. The art is breathtaking beautiful setting the mood in for the rest of the movie.
Ever since Phil did Tarzan I've been a fan of his music. With Brother Bear he again wrote, together with Mark Mancina a strong soundtrack with memorable songs like the upbeat "On My Way" or the sad "No Way Out" the latter is carried with some of the best animation Disney has done in recent years.
I'm glad Disney choose for less celeb voices with only the Moses being celeberty leaving the rest open for lesserknown/unknown (voice)actors.
Most of the film is animated to use the full length of the silver screen only supports the breathtaking art.
Not the DVD
Don't wait for the DVD you'll miss allot. No large 3 meter with DTS can make up for the theater experience.
The only minor point is that it was predictable that Kenai killed Koda's mom and the end, the battle between Kenai and Denahi was over to quick.
Anyway to make it a rap, go and see this movie. It's one of Disney's last 2D movies you'll get to see from WD Pictures for a decade or so. After Home on the Rage you'll get sick of 3D movies soon enough and you grab your BB DVD for a trip down memory lane of the quality Disney used to put into their old fashioned films.
Justice League of America (1997)
I didn't give this movie a 1 because..
.. there must be a movie out there that's even worse. Lame characters even lamer acting. Lots of voice actors even the great David Ogden "Cogsworth" Stiers himself couldn't turn this movie into something decent. I haven't seen any acting of the man but he is by far a wonderful voice actor. Then there's John Kassir who did Meeko in Pocahontas. Not much of a speaking role. Anyway back to Justice League... really bad costumes, like the 60's Batman series which was good for it's time. And weak SFX this movie isn't worth my time. Maybe just maybe with a different cast, a different director and a much bigger bag of money this could've become something. Maybe an idea for the crew behind Spiderman or X-men when they run out of sequel ideas.
Perhaps in 1980 but not in 2003
I'm likely one of the few people that doesn't die of laughter watching this movie. I think it's hardly funny at all it's dumb even. Perhaps that in 1980 I would've liked it but I was 2 at the time so I think not. This will be the lowest rating I've given a movie at IMDB. 2/10
I give it a too because there must be a movie out there that deserves a 1.
A Christmas Carol (1997)
A boring version
Despite the famous cast this animated version of Dickens tale is the borest I've seen. Enough that I zapped away in he first commercial break. The characters didn't appeal to me at all and the animation is looking cheap.
I'll give this movie a very low rating. Give me the Disney version anytime.
Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983)
Lovely but to short
After seeing the impressing TV movie A Christmas Carol from Clive Donner with George C. Scott as Scrooge I wish Disney made their version into a full classic. With today's DTV releases there's a market for it. Because this version is so wonderful, Scrooge McDuck is Ebenezer Scrooge and Mickey makes a fine Bob Cratchit. The spirits are good chooses casting Willie the Giant as Ghost of Christmas Present, Ghost of Christmas Past (Jiminy Cricket) and Pete as Ghost of Christmas Future
With animation by people as Mark Henn, Glen Keane, Randy Cartwright. It's my opinion that this short deserves a remake into a full DTV sequel.
Mickey's House of Villains (2001)
Not that good
2001's Snowed in at the House of Mouse was better put together. It made more sense. To many short cartoons in the House of Villains, to little club scenes. Jafar says that he's taking over at the start of the film, good opening by the way. Then the shorts, couple more snipplets of the House but nothing gets the story moving. Then at the end Jafar and the villains take over, kick the Fav Five and Co out of the club only to be taken back after another cartoon or two.
The collections of shorts in a HoM shell have the potential to be good if Disney decides to cut down with the cartoons and put more story in the House itself. Next year... Valentines Day, 2004... Eastern. There enough potential themes for future movies.
It's an ok movie
Most of the movie is ok for a hot summer evening with nothing better to do but I feel that the setup isn't scoring. Why does Matthew agree to be a girl and play as Martha instead of assisting Coach Chester. And why do they lie about it to Bess? The jokes are alright too with a few that are to much. The acting of Jonathan Brandis was good, best know from this role in Seaquest DSV. I have seen movies of Rodney Dangerfield before and ain't impressed, the eye balls gig is near scary. Vinessa Shaw does some nice acting but didn't get much screentime. The rest of the cast are one timers or unknown (to me) actors/Actresses with exceptions of Blake Clark (Coach Bull) who had a regular guest roll in Tim Tayor's Home Improvement. Another worth mentioning is Chuck McCann (the Bartender of the bar Chester is drinking) he had regular voice acting roles in famous Disney TV Animated Series as Ducktales and Tale Spin.
Anyway, when it's on tv and you've nothing better to do Ladybirds is a good way to kill time.
