I'm in the minority here, but I absolutely adored the Dumbo remake. It took a risk by focusing on the people, but I think that was the right call since it was live action. It makes a perfect companion to the cartoon.
Didn't think of it like that. So moreso like "Maleficent"?

I didn't hate the movie .. but just certain parts of it like what I stated. I liked it but I wish some things were different.

I think it bombed because it didn't use its cast properly. Like I said MJ should of been more front and center and dancing all over the place. Its FN Micheal Jackson one of the greatest dancers and singers of our time. Put the man all over the place. Also Diana Ross another powerhouse kinda played it way to low key. One song was just her standing in front of a black background singing like she was sleeping.

You have Diana Ross and MJ, use your stars!

I am legend wasn't too bad for a 2000's Zombie movie. It wasn't 28 days later or Sean of the Dead but Will was pretty decent in it. After Earth though, dog garbage.
We are in agreement on everything you just said! Diana Ross was the weakest link, IMO! They should have gone with the first choice: the girl from the stage musical. But no... That'd be too much like right. But I'm glad they used MJ as Scarecrow.

I still hold that advertising should have been deployed better.

Still... The movie and the NBC Live show were emotionally touching to me. I still cry at certain parts.

They are doing it because in some shape or form this is getting them the most money.

So believe me when I say that Disney did their work and this road is what is getting them the most money at the end of the day. They don't give a flying fuck about being woke and even if the movie bombs at the end of the day this MUST be how they're getting the most $$$ because otherwise they would not do it. Period.
All it takes is one look at how Disney has handled the Star Wars license to know they're really not that smart. They do make mistakes, they have ruined beloved franchises and it has affected their bottom line.

We'll have to wait and see what this live action remake will end up being. I think those are all trash so I hope it fails, but it probably won't.

Not an idiot statement at all. All people of color know how habitually racist white people can be. That's not saying no other race of people can't be racist. But white people are just KNOWN to be more than any other.
Races are not more racist then one another you dipshit, the area and people you connect with depict your behavior. Skin color only has a bearing if you listen to the MSM and buy into their bullshit.

Is this why non-white wants to move to white countries?
Is this why non-white countires accept large scale immigration?
Have you ever been to Asia or Africa where people are known to live in a multicultural paradise.


Does putting KNOWN in caps make it fact?

They haven't ruined jack shit commercially so far. While fans seem to hate on TLJ it still made them tons of money - and so will Episode 9. Just bump in Palpatine and the sheep jump into the theaters again. Just wait and see. The folks at Disney are laughing their ass off.

For Prince Eric.

Don’t know who he is but he looks nothing like the original. But that seems to be the theme here. Worst of all McCarthy is in the movie so expect her usual acting.

And he's ugly. Could they not have gotten Taryn Edgerton or what's his name that played in Cloak and Dagger?

I love how you just happen to omit Solo bombing and merchandise being in the toilet.

I'm sure if they cast Bella Thorne as Princess Tiana for a live action remake of The Princess and the Frog there would be no backlash. They are just fictional characters after all. Right? ...Right? :messenger_hushed:
... you do realize the princess and the frog was based off a European tale right? Sure it's got Louisiana fluff, but the frog prince already got race swapped, and I don't recall any pearl clutching about that.

A black mermaid doesn't like what she is and changes herself to be with a white dude?

Can you imagine the outrage is she starts the movie as the black Mermaid but when she comes ashore in her human form she's a white skinned red head girl.

Edit: I mean that is pretty outrageous in fairness lol

And isn’t this the guy who said that all black women were attractive or something? I think that was in the 007 thread. He should find all people attractive, don’t discriminate against the uglies.
I didn't say ALL. But I find Lashana Lynch attractive and pretty. And this girl, Halle Bailey, is pretty.

But judging by that picture of Harry Styles... He's not what I would call an attractive man (in the face). Taryn Edgerton would be a better choice, IMO. Or Cloak from Cloak and Dagger.

My source told me that the ufc heavyweight fighter juan adams is probably gonna be the father of ariel in the live action movie.
The resemblance is astonishing



They are clearly aiming for that sexy big eyed gold fish style.
