Partly due to being experimental I think -- they hadn't done a live-action remake exactly yet, but saw how much money could be minted doing a loose pair of sequels to Alice in Wonderland (of all things).

What boggles my mind is why there's even a sequel to this coming out. I thought they told the story the way they wanted (badly) in the first film! -- is this going to be a straight remake now?

This reminds me that I never figured out why the 70s Gemini Man series was about an invisible man secret agent (somewhat on the Six Million Dollar plan)...

Today it's time for a little classic horror pitch meeting:


Quote from: Silent Disapproval Robot
If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

"Isn't Netflix ten billion dollars in debt?" "Twelve billion actually." "Well, I hate debt, but I love gambling, so sounds interesting!"

It made me read about Netflix being in debt, and then getting even more in debt so it can fund more crap content instead of just letting viewers outside the U.S
watch all the content Netflix paid billions of dollars for its exclusive rights.  :tickedoff: :uglystupid2:

Frozen was supposed to be a one-shot movie with a "they lived happily ever after."
But then money happened.
Yes, then money happened.

How is that any different than any other Disney movie?
Aladdin, Lion King, Little Mermaid and others were all supposed to be one-shots as well.

"Well, I do refuse to learn from others' mistakes!" "That's what I love about you, sir!"

My parents by the way adore this movie.
