cool, it's harkening a bit back to Good Dinosaur discussion in that I'm way more interested in watching Spiderverse or The Book Of Kells than something angling for photorealism. I want my animation to use every aspect of the medium it can to do things that are gonzo and amazing.

while we are talking about animated films that have no pretentions about being photorealistic, everyone in this thread should go out and watch Ruben Brandt, Collector. it isn't as polished as Into the Spiderverse, but it's just as committed to be an animated film first and foremost instead of a slightly more colourful live-action film.

it's available on Netflix too, so you have no excuse.

Yo, nankeen, if you're looking for another idiosyncratic animation feature to break things up between Bakshis, you could do a lot worse than Bill Plympton's Hair High.

If any of y'all like Lupin III (and if you don't you're a loving monster), go watch Takeshi Koike's Lupin movies right now

I've only seen Gravestone of Daisuke Jigen and Goemon Ishikawa's Spray of Blood out of the three (haven't gotten around to Fujiko Mine's Lie yet), but Gravestone is pretty good, and Goemon's Spray of Blood is loving amazing

Overall it's exactly as good as "the Redline guy making Lupin III movies" should reasonably be, and that's a pretty loving high bar to meet

e: fair warning, though, while Gravestone of Daisuke Jigen is basically at typical Lupin levels of violence, Goemon Ishikawa's Spray of Blood is disturbingly gory at times. Goemon gets basically Green Room'd with a hatchet in the final fight between him and the villain. and it looks loving nasty as hell.

The funniest, most interesting thing about Toy Story 4 is the laser precision on how ethnic Pixar thought they could or should make Bonnie and her parents.

Hmmmm, very normal observation that definitely doesn't say more about you than Pixar!

Anyway, Toy Story 4 was... fine? Largely a pretty good movie, although they absolutely had no clue what to do with Buzz and the ending, while pretty emotional, was also absurdly rushed. I'm not, like, mad that it exists, but I wish they hadn't undone the ending of 3 and had just kept making more shorts and specials with the characters instead.

I've seen Frozen 2 twice now and I just want to say that despite being an objectively good song, gently caress Into The Unknown because it's a far far more difficult song to sing (there's a video somewhere about Idina Menzel talking about having trouble with it) and when children sing it over and over and over again like they did with Let It Go it makes me want to jump into traffic.

I've seen frozen 2 with my daughter 3 times now and it's really hard to tell at the end of show yourself when Iduna is singing. It's even more confusing because she sings one of the last lines of the song and when her face is on screen the lips aren't moving. But the first line she sings her lips are moving so its not that her vision isn't actually singing. I wonder if Disney changed the song last minute?

There are so many awkward cuts, I think a lot of scenes perhaps didn't have time to be re-animated or re-rendered. It's very choppy.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

On reflection with Spies in Disguise I feel it's point would have been stronger if the villain had been a civilian that got caught in one of Will Smith's explosions, rather than an embittered injured goon. Someone who wasn't in the circle of violence until Will put him there. I actually thought that that was where they were going in the first place.

There is an arc of James Tynion IV's Detective Comics run that does something like this called The Victim Syndicate.

Yeah, the song kinda feels like the most difficult parts of Let It Go but for the entire bit. I do like this cover of it by Brendon Urie.

It is so conspicuous that I actually think this is a change from the original script. I think they just thought that would be a bit much.

The entire film focuses so much on collateral damage and how it's overlooked that this was the really obvious conclusion.

My kids have moved on to The Little Mermaid, and I'm happy to say that drat, those songs really hold up. It's easy to see why this was such a big deal.

The description they give it on the Disney+ page is weirdly low-key though:

So I finally watched Castle of Caligistrato - dunno why it took me so long. - though it's the Streamline dub writing around the trademarks.

It's definitely very Miyazaki, though it's weird as hell seeing Fujiko being outright helpful and Lupin being so nice... though it sounds like the intention was this was a Lupin near the end of his career and being a little more somber and reflective. But yeah, I can definitely see where TGMD's clocktower fight came from.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Moon's castle design is straight up Castle Cagliostro. You even have to insert a couple of rings in the giant clock face to get to the true ending.

Edit: I don't know what TGMD is.

Also, there's an episode of BTAS where Batman has a wrench fight with Clock King on spinning clock tower gears. No way that wasn't a reference.

god I remember watching the reruns on cartoon network and even as a kid noticing how abrupt it seemed to have 'ended' (and the joke Q&A ad that CN ran at the time implying there was more but it got taped over). It really was a neat adventure show and had some amazing setpieces, a pirate ship made from the bones of a great leviathan? Fantastic.

doesn't Mighty Max end on a time loop? That would definitely be open to a sequel.

Pirates of Dark Water *very hastily* resolved the issue of the titular dark water (as they were alerted to being cancelled early due to how expensive the series was), though given how hasty it was, it can easily be amended.

I meant Mighty Max.

I had both a Mighty Max (the shark playset) and Polly Pocket as a kid. I'm pretty sure they were compatible.

Reminds me of those Micro Machines playsets that were basically self-contained stories on their own. I think it's out of fashion to make toys on such an easily lost/swallowed scale nowadays though, Lego aside.
