When you put it that way, it sounds like absolute garbage. Pfffft, if you have enough hope and look sad enough, things will change all around you for better or worse. Ugg, so gross!!!! I can see why it would be so hard to enjoy it, especially since they completely catered to the zombie aspect rather than the relationships of the main cast. Well, hopefully they won’t be making another abomination of a film like that, the poor books deserved better than what they got.
Haha, so there’s a song in The Princess and the Goblin? Sounds like a good use of a song, keepin’ away those goblins! :rofl:
Ahh, so you all watched Laurel and Hardy films? That’s nice to know, not many people know of them, or at least people our age! Pfffft, your bother sounds like he knew what to question. I too thought the world used to be black and white as a young kid. :rofl:
Definitely, they were nice changes of pace from Disney for sure. Haha, you liked that “In the Dark of the Night” song?! Ahh, Rock Opera! I thought that one was creepy since all of those little critters were dancin’ around. I was always a fan of the most-remembered song of that movie, “Once Upon a December.” :XD
Glad you enjoy stop-motion too! It is very difficult, consistency can be a much harder issue to fix than in regular 2D or 3D animation. Yeah, Laika’s fantastic, really paving the way for stop-motion as an industry, but keeping the bar really really high, haha. Think you’ll get to see Kubo and the Two Strings while it’s still in theaters? I actually saw it today, coincidentally. It was very beautiful. Had a lot of traditional and cultural elements to incorporate too, so that must’ve made it more difficult.
Oh yeah, cartoons for kids are short for a reason, short attention spans! :rofl: Very fascinating that you remember movies more than shows though, that’s really cool. Middle school/high school is a great time to focus on movies and films, you’ve probably seen a ton of great things! Easier to retain lengthier and more intricate plots and pick up on subtle details and character development. too
Ahh, I getcha! Sounds like a good time to marathon. Netflix is definitely great for marathoning!
Haha, so you tried Korean dramas? Yeah, I’m in the same boat as you, they’ve got an interesting plot but too much goes on, it drifts away from the plot, and the characters become very, very repetitive. I nearly spit out my drink at your description of the main protagonist girl and her encounters with love, so accurate!!! :XD But yes, that, love triangles, and giving up and then trying again are also quite common. Coffee Prince sounds like a funny one, glad you found a good K-drama. I only have seen one or two and they weren’t worth the time I spent watching them, haha.
Oh, so you’ve got a friend who likes anime? Hmm, there are a lot that have cliches, they can definitely be avoided though! I love anime actually. Hmm, it depends on what you’re looking for. Have a criteria for art styles, music, genre, characters? Some random ones off the top of my head that are great are Mononoke(not to be confused with Princess Mononoke), Monster, Usagi Drop, and Sakamichi no Apollon. These are all different genres, but all are fantastic in my opinion.
Haha, no problem! Lists are great! I just typed a long list as well! :rofl: It’s cool that you can use those shows as background music/noise as well as them helping you with focusing!
I mostly watch goofy things. Futurama/The Simpsons, Flight of the Conchords, The Addams Family, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, to name a few. Just a lot of random comedies and cartoons. :lol:
Wow, that’s really neat! An origin story to the Gods! You’ve barely scratched the tip of the iceberg! Prometheus Bound sounds fascinating!
Ah, well hopefully your class all about Greek/Roman mythology will be gettin’ better and better! Not like you can run out of material to cover! Definitely the easiest starting point, bu
