    Still plenty of clueless parents/grandparents' wallets keeping this series afloat.

    Oh, and also, I thought this would be of interest to you guys:

    I thought the filmmakers would finally stop at the one with the dinosaurs, but I guess not. Before we know it, there will be more Alpha and Omega movies than Land Before Time movies. Heck, I'm surprised there isn't an A&O TV (or at least Netflix) series yet.

    I thought I should bring this to the chat's attention:

    This looks... so bad.

    Yet another reason for me to hate geese. :grouchy:

    This movie's getting released April of next year. I hope it gets sucked into a jet turbine.

    And if you think that's bad, in the "dump month" before that, Open Road will have yet another CG film in theaters.

    So, another off-brand CGI movie about someone who wishes to be something she's not and goes on a personal journey to make that dream a reality.

    Visually, I will say the movie does, actually, look nice, and the animation does, actually, look decent . . . but with a plot like this, it's totally predictable what's going to happen: this girl will eventually become the ballerina she always wanted to be, all the while learning that she doesn't have to pretend to be someone she isn't and that it's okay to just be yourself.

    Oh, and Carly Rae Jepsen is part of the cast? No thanks.

    , or Ballerina as it's known everywhere else, can rightfully be considered a flop here at around $5 million this weekend, even though it already made back almost double its $30 million budget in the foreign market.


    Doesn't look too bad compared to off-brand animated films; just average.

    Why do some movies always have to have a different title in North America? Like the movie known as PIRATE RADIO in North America and THE BOAT THAT ROCKED everywhere else.

    In the case of that, perhaps they thought Americans would be too stupid to understand that punny title. And market-based titles go the other way, too. Zootopia is called Zootropolis in Britain, for some reason. And let's not forget UHF becoming The Vidiot from UHF, which Weird Al hated.

    Though I will say, Leap! is a more creative and unambiguous name compared to Ballerina.

    I saw the trailer for the Emoji Movie when I saw Planets of the Apes at the theater a while back. Long story short:The movie looked like one big steaming pile of

    My friend told me that there is going to be a Fidget Spinner movie yesterday. PLEASE TELL ME THAT ISN'T TRUE! I almost lost my faith in humanity when I heard that. That sounds like a parody you'd see on Robot Chicken making fun of the whole "everything popular needs a movie" philosophy that Hollywood seems to have nowadays.

    On Rotten Tomatoes:

    Oogieloves: 27%
    Emoji Movie: 7%

    WOW. You know a movie sucks when Oogieloves has better reviews.

    That's amazing, especially since it's the third lowest-rated movie on there after Mulan II and the first Yu-Gi-Oh film, The Pyramid of Light (yes, you read that correctly. Yu-Gi-Oh has a 5% on there).
    Also, my sister found this TV pilot called Back To The Drawing Board that seems to have a cute premise. But wait until you look at HOW it's animated:

    Wow. That looks like cutscenes from a 2000's videogame mixed with Video Brinquedo movies. And did I mention this project began last year? There is no way in heck this is probably going to get greenlit by ANY network with such atrocious animation.

    "Third lowest-rated movie" Ummm, what do you mean by that? There's plenty of movies on there with 0% scores.

    But about that pilot, I recognize that squirrel. The studio behind that pilot must also be the same studio that makes these phone games I've seen on the Google Play Store, like "Talking James Squirrel". Same squirrel, same low-quality CGI animation.

    It's not CGI, but I've never liked Mulan II either. It just didn't have the feel of the original movie at all. Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies of all time and I felt that the second one was a bit too sequel-ish, if you know what I mean. It wasn't poorly made or anything, it just lacked the original movie's tone in my opinion. Mushu not being voiced by Eddie Murphy was an early indicator that it would be changed too much. But not only did they do that, also Mushu's personality was changed completely. He went from helping Mulan and sticking by her side to being a complete jerk who wanted to break up her and Shang just because of his own selfish desires. I'm sorry, but that's not the same Mushu who, as we found out in the first movie, actually cares about Mulan.

    Oh, it appears that the heads of Original Force stepped down from their positions...
    ...before Duck Duck Goose has even been released.

    Will Alpha and Omega be the next Land Before Time or something? lol

    No, because Land Before Time was actually good.
