Has there been a theatrical Seuss project that didn't crass it up? I walked out of the live-action Grinch movie because it felt like watching someone defecate on a copy of the TV special. The Cat in the Hat with Mike Meyers. I don't think I need to say anything beyond mentioning that that movie exists.

People praised Horton Hears a Who, which was kinda sweet I guess (the fact that it gets trotted out by conservatives as an anti-abortion parable taints it for me). But I don't remember it being full of fart and pop culture jokes or crass marketing moves that completely undermined the intention of the original story.

The prolife subtext of Horton is unfortunate but really not the movies fault. Suess hated the fact that his book was being co-opted by the prolife movement but if you're gonna do make an accurate portrayal of the work, it's hard to get that interpretation out of there.

Even that had a lot of "hip" humor that didn't really feel true to the Seuss style. It's a good movie if you can get past that, but I still wish a lot of these studios could resist the urge to turn everything into Shrek. (Ironically, Dreamworks is doing a pretty good job of that at the moment.) It's annoying that every animated movie has to try to be the smartest kid on the block.

The Japanese trailer is fascinating - it could illustrate what aspects of a movie appeal to different cultures. The North American trailer emphasizes the archetypal "oppressed protagonist wants their freedom" plot and the cheap jokes (men are naked under their kilts, har har). The Japanese trailer emphasizes the fantasy/fairy tale elements of the story in addition to the archetype, and there isn't much humour in the trailer at all.

The strange thing is, the NA trailer made me think, "Well, that was boring, but Pixar trailers usually are terrible.." and the Japanese trailer made me think, "Holy poo poo I need to see this movie now."

Well, this could be a good thing, as it could mean more animated Seuss. On the other hand, it could be a bad thing, because it could mean more clumsily handled, irony-creating animated Seuss movies.

These Seuss movies are like a godsend to animation studios. They have a trusted name to reel in the parents, and pre-written, pre-designed, colourful wacky characters for the kids. Cuts a hell of a lot of time out of preproduction, I'd imagine.

Yeah, it looks like for the English ads they're definitely following the same line of marketing thought that was behind HTTYD and Tangled's ridiculous advertising campaigns. This is a lot more what I was expecting from Brave, and I feel a lot better about it now that I know my hopes weren't misplaced.

Link had high spirits, but lost his bottle of gin after drinking to the pint of no return. Dis-spirited over his ale-ment and at Lagerheads, he sought brew-prints for beer.

Speaking of DWA and their improving quality, I re-watched KFP2 last night and realized something else that I never noticed before: when Mr. Ping is telling Po about when he found him and decided to start raising him, not one bathroom/diaper joke is told or even alluded to. Even when it looked like they would, they diverted and went for better: "...and then I tried to put some pants on you!"

And that was legitimately funny

Well, there was that random anime sequence in the middle.

In context without the pop-sub-culture underpinnings, it kind-of-sort-of works, since it's clear by that point that Horton is the village daydreamer with sugar-rush energy. Granted if they dumped the exaggerated anime stuff and made it a sequence with several styles (pulp sci-fi, surreal, high-fantasy, AND anime at the end) it probably would've worked a bit better.

Very late to this party, but I think Burton has made a career off biting Edward Gorey's style, and adding stripes and bug-eyes. Not that I'm knocking him for it, just wanted to put in my two cents on the topic.


The Japanese trailer for Brave is so much better than the other one, I actually want to watch it in Japanese now, with subtitles. Sadly, the mouths wouldn't go along with the words, so I'll probably just shelve the idea.

I was at an Archery store over the weekend and I mentioned to the owner that I thought his sales would start to rise and more girls would be taking up the sport, after so many movies featuring young female leads who are archers. Brave and the Hunger Games, obviously, but I suppose Hanna could be added as well.

Since it's CGI couldn't they easily change the lips so that they match the dialogue? Honest question, I'm curious if animation studios do that. I remember in high school we watched foreign language-versions of Pixar movies and they really seemed to go out of their way to localize the movies; the only thing I remember off the top of my head is that in Monsters Inc. they changed the gag where the crosswalk signs say DON'T STALK/STALK to a gag with a a two-headed pictogram since the wordplay didn't carry over.

Plus I know that they do that in videogames, like in those TF2 videos.

They probably COULD, but there would be a lot of re-animating, re-rendering, and re-compositing to do. I don't know if it would be worth the time and expense to have it done, but it would probably be doable.

The TF2 thing probably isn't as big a deal since that's rendered on the fly. You still need to re-animate the lips but I think that's about as much as goes into the production of those videos, as far as rendering and compositing goes. I think they just record the output of the TF2 engine at that point.

I'm just talking out my rear end though.

Fun-time is over.

Japanese voice actors almost invariably voice OVER, recording their lines after the animation is done (rather than "under", as in the west, where animation is created after the vocal track) so they probably have more experience matching lip flaps well.

Both, actually! It didn't sound like something a Concerned Mother of The Jungle of Nool-type would actually say, and the atheist perspective is so rarely presented in pop culture, I would've preferred it if they'd excised that line, in favor of more grousing about how the over- or "improper" use of the imagination leads to nonconformity, rebellion, contempt for authority, whatever whatever.

Well, and it would've allowed the movie's message to become even more generalized and universal, since most fascist-types and crazy ideologues tend to get up in arms about people thinking the "wrong" thoughts.

They could, theoretically, but animating lip sync is incredibly tedious and slow. Ok, well all animation is incredibly tedious and slow, but lip sync especially. Re-animating the entire film's lip sync by hand for even just one different language would involve a ton of man hours (and rendering hours), so I don't see them going that far.

Echoing the above -- it's technologically possible for sure. But presumably, they want to exercise more artistic control over the characters' faces during dialogue than merely having their lips match the words.

For such a major production, where everything goes through a million phases before being committed to a final print, it's very unlikely.

Yes, as far as the "Since it's CGI couldn't they easily change the lips so that they match the dialogue?" goes, it's not even remotely easy.

It would waste a ton of manhours, rendering hours, not to mention a shitload of disk space to redo renders.

Rendering a full animated feature takes a lot more overhead than one-off renders of videogame characters in videogame environments. And by a 'lot' more, think petabytes.

I know on the Toy Story 2 special features they show one edit they made for the international audience. Buzz is giving a speech about something or other, and it fades to an American flag behind him while giving the speech, and then it fades to the flag on the TV while Al is asleep, and it's the "broadcast end" clip. For the international markets they redid it so he was giving the speech in front of a spinning globe, which also later appeared on the TV. I didn't see if they tried to redo the lip sync, but I doubt it.

For no real reason, here's the Tweety short from Happy Feet Two animated around the Mel Blanc novelty record. (Thanks to YouTube's newfangled system, you can even watch it in 3D if you have glasses- or cross your eyes.) The other Blanc recordings that they used for additional dialogue seem out of place, but if it's been said before I have to say it again: it's awesome that June Foray still sounds like Granny at 94.

As for The Lorax, I saw it and liked it (except for that whole chase sequence in the third act). The unintentionally funniest part to me was the "How Bad Can I Be" song, since it could just have easily have been sung by the marketers of the film (there's even a shot of the Lorax being thrown a thneed just to get a "Lorax approved!" billboard, which is so unintentionally close to the "Truffala-tree-friendly" Mazda you'd think it was planned).

Last night I saw a Arrietty/Princess Mononoke double feature, having never seen a Studio Ghibli film before.

Arrietty felt like an experiment in making the quietest and most innocuous film possible while still being engaging. In that sense it succeeded - it kept my attention the whole time. But it wasn't exactly what I'd call compelling - it felt like the slow beginning of a much more epic story. The father in particular was incredibly bland.

The ending would have been a lot better without the last 2 sentences or so. Some things don't need to be said out loud. I tear up at movies really easily (I think it's the emotional music), but something about how the ending was slightly misplayed meant I didn't here. Overall I liked it ok, and the art was very nice.

Mononoke was heavier on the action, but still fairly slow paced. I found the weird Japanese nature god stuff kind of cool. Someone a few pages ago mentioned how we see this grand background story from the narrower perspective of the prince, and I think that worked well, as did the relative lack of black-and-whiteness in the characters. The eponymous character actually felt kind of irrelevant aside from being a love interest for the prince - clearly this was his story. I also found the simplistic environmental message a little grating. Hurf durf humans are bad because they cut down trees. It felt a bit like Arrietty overall in that it was engaging throughout but didn't leave much of a lasting emotional or intellectual impact.

Just got back from the Lorax!

The CG was gorgeous, of course--especially in the marshmallow scene--but the songs really made the movie for me. They were unexpected, they were memorable, and they helped to move the story along, and I only wish there had been more of them!

Also appreciated the comedy, especially the slapstick. The fish and that big fat Barb-a-loot stole every scene they were in.

Naturally, this was the role DeVito was born to play. He was pitch-perfect.

I'm not sure the film was exactly Dr. Seuss' the Lorax, but it was an enjoyable interpretation of the story, at least. After that infuriating Mazda ad, I went in with very low expectations, and I have to admit the movie had some authentic heart to it.

And yes, some scenes were a tad anvilicious, but hey, anyone over the age of three who goes to see the Lorax should know what they're in for.

That Mazda ad still makes my blood simmer, though.

Such a weird movie. I spent most of it wondering whether I'd been slipped a drug before watching it and the other part wondering who on earth thought this movie up.

Good on them for making something a lot more original than previous movies, and the less pop culture-y, more original jokes were definitely noticed, but I really didn't like the result.
