Yes, that was one of their best. Brink! was good, too (the one about the inline skating enthusiasts and their rivals who skated for money rather than for the fun of it).Speaking of the old DCOMS (if that's what they're calling them now), I loved Smart House.
You know... if it wasn't for that movie, Chip and Dale wouldn't have been the Rescue Rangers. Though, i'm starting to think that was an internet rumor... or at least the first draft of the series.The Rescuers Down Under- the Disney movie that everyone seems to forget about. True, it was a sequel to what can hardly be described as one of their most memorable films, but this movie was awesome. I remember being a little girl and watching this with my older brother every summer in the top floor of our grandma's house.
I see what you're getting at. it's not so much underrated (the aisles of toys to this day still being produced prove it) as much as under appreciated by an adult Fanbase. I have to say, it was a pleasant surprise considering I went into the film not expecting much. Pixar has never made a bad film, and Cars and Bugs Life are no where near bad or even less than decent. They've had a continuous string of gems since their first one. Very rare to see that in a film production company. But there is a few things about Cars I didn't like... the fact that all the characters were stereotypes was a turn off.Cars- I don't get why everyone seems to consider this Pixar's worst movie (to me, that dubious honor goes to A Bug's Life, but I talked about that in another thread). It really was an impressive piece. The animation was great, the characters were fun and memorable, and the story was fun.
he was the only thing REALLY enjoyable in the movie. I didn't see it until several months ago when it was on TV, but even with the commercials and previews and Kid's WB shoving it violently down our throats, I really liked the Dragon. Got the dragon bean bag from the WB store too. And I dug the Urkle the chicken axe head thingy too. Wish I got him. But other than that, it really seemed a jaded attempt at being a Disney movie (even referencing Lion King) and trying way too hard to have wacky sidekicks. I felt the movie was thrown together for the most part, and it could have been decent if they tried harder to make a movie that WASN'T like Disney films.I seem to be the only person in the world who likes that two-headed dragon.
I'll always prefer the original for it's dark and beautifully strange vibe. That's THE Gremlins movie. It's Gremlins But as for Gremlins 2, while I agree that it didn't get as much attention when it was released as Gremins did when it came out, I think most people agree with you these days and prefer 2.Gremlins 2: The New Batch, the rare Hollywood sequel that sweeps the floor with the movie that preceded it. I'd say it's Joe Dante's masterpiece and the plot is, in fact, very strong especially for such a Looney Tunes-inspired film.
