There's something really sexy about Scrooge McDuck. I love Uncle Scrooge.

It is hilarious how much more "cinematic" the tv show is compared to the movie. Like using a prison in the middle of the ocean as a setting or turning the moon red after someone kills the moon spirit or including a map to give context to a sprawling adventure.

Oh something else, the show had actual levity and humor in it. The movie as we know is dire and depressing and gray

i think the problem with making a movie based on a property aimed at kids is time.

You basically have a year, maybe two tops before the kids age out and move onto something else.

So whatever you make has to be made fast, and preferable cheap. So no going out of your way to hire a martial artist to teach a bunch of middle grade actors how to throw a convincing punch on screen.

But you have the Harry Potters which they took there time with and they got the investment back. The Last Airbender franchise was alive from 2005 to 2014, so its not like it was just a flash in the pan.

The movie somehow removes all the character and personality from our three heroes and gives us no reason to care about any of them. I don't understand how you watch a second of that show and decide that Sokka needs to be mopey and whiny or that Aang should be depressed.

I just listened to the SWAT episode again today and I think that Eric's story about going to watch In Bruges might be the funniest moment of the whole series.

Moreover, it's not like it's impossible to make a film based on an existing property from the past that was well-liked and have it be successful. Hell, a good portion of Hollywood these days is based on doing exactly that. "Hubris" is my go-to explanation for the movie falling apart so spectacularly, but it really does boggle the mind when you have a director making what is clearly a martial arts film without a single recognizable martial art in it.

No Korra's okay too and that guy is an rear end in a top hat. Korra's just not as good.

But that guy is once again an idiot and I turned it off when he talked about NICK EXECUTIVES. To be clear, The Legend of Korra is a heavily serialized steampunk series with characters who are exclusively Asian or Native American in appearance and features intense violence. One of the biggest plot threads in the show is that the hero of the previous show turned out to be kind of a lovely dad who has left his middle aged children still trying to come to terms with where they stand with their no deceased father. Like even if you don't like the show, it's kind of hard to argue that it's the product of EXECUTIVES.

Prior to this episode, if you had put a gun to my head and asked me to tell you the name of Mario Van Peebles' character in Highlander III, I would have closed my eyes and accepted death. And I've seen it at least 5 times. I can remember the Kurgen, Kitana, and even Jacob freaking Kell (Huh, lots of K's), but not MVP.

I don't think a lot of people really appreciate how well versed in cinema these four guys are. They will always bring up some oft forgotten film or character actor randomly in any episode and mention every movie they've ever been in better than the IMDB Tribune ever could and I always took it for granted. But what blew my mind was that in this latest mailbag episode Cabin remembers, off the top of his head, the year Adam Sandler's Click was released. Why would you waste precious space in your brain for such incredibly useless information unless it's a byproduct of your deep love and appreciation for the art of cinema and its history.

I liked how the WHM guys were brainstorming about how to make the prison escape better, and they ended up describing exactly how it was set in the show.
