  • Disney must die

    I have been looking for a way to vent about something inconsiquential for quite some time, and I think I have found the perfect outlet. It's Walt Disney and his Mickey Mouse outfit. Look, I understand remakes. I understand that the world really needs a "Princess Diaries 2" or a "Little Mermaid" prequal. But there are some things in life that are sacred. Some things that should never be touched. And those ****ers just touched them. They touched my favorite childhood movie.

    If you told me The Rock was staring in a chase movie about aliens, I might have said "Sweet, bring it on!" After all, it's got to have lots of bangs and muscle flexing and maybe some hot alien babes. But wait... no, it's alien kids. Ooooookay. Could still be interesting... no, wait. It's a DISNEY movie about alien kids with The Rock. Oh lord, this can't be good. Then we see the title and my jaw drops. "Race to Witch Mountain" flashes on the screen, and I almost throw my remote through it. You bastards. You terrible, hideous, pestulant bastards. You took the coolest movie of my child hood (Escape to Witch Mountain) and you did this to it. I hate you all.

    Now, I know what you're thinking... "Really Paul, THAT is the coolest movie of your childhood?" And my answer is an unequivecal "Hell yes!" Mr. Winky the cat! Eddie Albert in the flying saucer! What could be better??? Sure, you might choose "Star Wars" but does it have Mr. Winky? No, it just has a stupid wooky. Is nothing sacred anymore? Does no one care? Is this what we've come to as a society, that we have to remake Witch Mountain movies? God help us all. Next thing you know they're going to remake "Watcher in the Woods" and "Lady in White", the two scariest movies I have ever seen in my life.

    If I could dig Walt up and spit on him I would.

        RUN to the video store and get it on VHS tape (since I doubt it's on DVD!).

            I rarely post over here but I have to come out of hiding for a "Escape to Witch Mountain" reference. Tony and Tia rocked my childhood. My brother, sister and I loved those movies ("Return from Witch Mountain", too). Thanks for the memories. :clapper:

                While I am not the biggest fan here by far, I will say this - They couldn't even get the name right.

                  I was also a fan of the Witch Mountain shows.

                  Here's some more fuel for your fire, poet... how come in the animated Disney films, there are no mothers, there is some issue with the mothers or the mothers always die?

                    BTW, I do HIGHLY recommend "Lady in White" and "Watcher in the Woods". Both are great flicks :)

                      Ah yes, Lady in White - parts of it were filmed near my hometown in Upstate NY - always cool to see Canandaigua Lake in the background of the cemetery scene.

                        Actually, you made me think of the coolest movies from when I was a kid. The Cat From Outer Space. I **** you not, I loved and still love that movie.

                          I LOVED that movie :) But then I was also a big fan of Andre Norton's Star Kayats books.

                            I'm not familiar with those books. As for the other movies you mentioned, I added them to my Netflix queue.

                              LOVED those movies too, saw the preview last night and couldn't believe it. My wife, never heard of the movies. Really sad remake ...
