Well Walter Peck is supposed to be back in it and he was clearly the highlight of the first one…so…
I mean, of course he is, they have flogged every other last ounce of nostalgia out of everything else. Might as well dredge up William Atherton and see if he is willing to work for scale.
I mean Walter Peck was right. I didn’t need a second, third, fourth and now fifth feature length film to prove that to me, he gets more right the more films they make.
They still have to do Ron Jeremy.
Well, the second one was at least good, arguably better than the first depending on how you look at it. Then, they wisely let it go. Every attempt since then had been nostalgic cash-grabs, mixed with poor attempts at social messaging.
This week: David Zaslav makes another idiotic decision for greed.
Also this week (today) David Zaslav makes less of an idiotic decision for greed.
Really hope this sees the light of day… from within my living room at least.
If any of y’all have seen the leaked crew video, it’s an impressively large production with well-made sets and effects, and is equally heartbreaking to see it all nearly vanish without a trace…
Chris Pratt is voicing Garfield in this movie so I guess with the Chris Pratt tradition of having most of the characters he voices be in Lego sets there will be Lego Garfield soon won’t complain I need more orange Lego bricks https://youtu.be/IeFWNtMo1Fs?si=KCQKpXYMTYnZmiIZ
I’ll be honest, I think Pratt’s voice kind of works for Garfield. That being said it’s really weird to try to make a feature length film based on Garfield.
Honestly agree I haven’t watched every film with him in it but the ones I have watched the Lego movies the guardians of the galaxy films and the Mario movie he has actually done better then I expected for the lego movie he fits the role of generic man in a not generic world for guardians of the galaxy he does a good job at being as annoying as star lord in the comics and for the Mario movie and this Garfield movie just a New Yorkers accent
Why do they keep making these Garfield movies and not use the guy who voiced him in the 90s cartoon? The guy who sounded like Stu Pickles on the Rugrats (wasn’t actually that guy, though)? That guy is Garfield. That voice is perfect to fit the lazy, snarky cat. Murray and Pratt are good voice actors, but they are not Garfield. You need someone with a lazy voice. If you won’t get the original guy, at least use Jim Gaffigan for goodness sake!
Lorenzo Music has been dead for 22 years my dude.
Ok, if that’s the guy I’m talking about, that’s a good reason to at least not get him, but I know there’s people who sound like him, including, indeed, the guy who voiced Stu pickles, assuming he’s alive. And still, anyway, they keep getting actors that don’t sound like Garfield to do it.
One might say it’s the best reason…
I got bad news for you.
Jim Gaffigan it should be then.
Eh, I’ve heard better ones.
I found a video comparing Garfield voices and going from these to Chris Pratt I think if he did his lines in the film at like 4am it would sound at least a bit closer to the other Garfield’s voices https://youtu.be/-4yko3m2e8s?si=ClZIKp2nFWLmdqy5
Scream 7, the holiday slasher sequel to Scream 6 is dead in the water after the two leads from the previous two aren’t returning for their third outing.
Originally this movie was suppose to take place around the Christmas time and focus once again on the Carpenter Sisters from the previous two entires after Legacy Characters passed the reigns over to a younger generation. Of course outside factors played a role in this with Arquette’s Character being axed off, payment disputes with Neve Campbell, and Cox’s character taking a back seat, but regardless the production of Scream 7 has been nothing more than troubled since it started shortly after Scream 6’s release.
With Radio Silence not returning and the two main leads of the current trilogy as-well. It seems the heavy script revisions and studio will have to pivot just to earn the goodwill back from audiences since excitement and enthusiasm for this sequel is now gone.
Okay, so, turns out there’s quite a few Musical Movies that aren’t putting any emphasis in their marketing that they are musicals.
I knew of Wonka and Mean Girls surprisingly being musicals despite no indication in their trailers, but also the upcoming The Colour Purple does this too, as well as some previously released movies like Netflix’s movie adaptation of the animated kids’ series Miraculous Ladybug or the Adam Sandler animated film Leo…
Which, of course, raises another question: If studios don’t want to tell potential customers that a movie is a musical because they think audiences might not see it as a result… why are they making musicals in the first place? It would seem there is a rather large disconnect between the people who make the movies and the people who market the movies that needs to be resolved.
Edit: I totally messed up the first sentence and said “aren’t” instead of “are” musicals oops
They don’t do it because a lot of people (including me) hate musicals and would be turned off from a product being a musical.
I have Tickets to see Godzilla: Minus One this Friday evening, i can’t wait to see it!
