    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

    Lately I've been noticing alot of cartoons in the background of movies, like Kill Bill Vol. 2, Ghost Dawg, but I don't know the toon titles, so maybe we could start a thread to name the toons that grace movies? To narrow down the criteria, let's just do non-animated movies to keep it simple. Here's a few to get it started:

    Close Encounters - Drip-Along Daffy
    Lethal Weapon - Bugs Christmas Special
    Ghost Dawg - Woody Woodpecker shorts
    The Professional - Natalie Portman is watching The Transformers

    Who's got more?

    Final Destination 4 AKA The Final Destination
    A (re-dubbed) clip from "Red Hot Rangers" plays in the background shortly after the racist jerk is killed.

    Cloverfield

    When one of the main characters goes to an electronics store to replace a dead battery an episode of "Spongebob Squarepants" is playing on one of the T.V.s inside.

    I recall "Chow Hound" being watched by the little boy in "Cats and Dogs."

    In the first live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie-- Donatello and Michael Angelo are watching the Aesop and Son(from Rocky and Bullwinkle) fable "The Tortoise and the Hare" in which the turtle is a slow but loyal delivery boy and the hare loves food. "Go! Move it, will ya? Aw, you're letting him blow right by ya! Can you believe this guy? Come on! Don't just...! Ninja-kick the damn rabbit! Do something!"[rolling]

    The Island (or remake of Logun's Run) - I think it's Tex Avery's Doggone Tired?
    Gremlins - in the Theater the gremlin's are watching Snow White
    JFK - Drip Along Daffy

    In "Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders" during the second story of the film-- which is actually a reedited version of "The Devil's Gift" an earlier film made by the same director, the young boy who receives the deadly cymbal clashing monkey is seen watching Ib Irwek's ComiColor Cartoon "Balloon Land." I like the MST3K version which includes remarks upon seeing the short cartoon. When the opening is seen "Brought to you by LSD." Also when the Pincushion Man first appears "Okay, now we're in Hell. Finally happened." :giggle:

    ~ Howdy, Folks!

    “The Comic” is a 1969 comedy film co-written, co-produced and directed by Carl Reiner. It stars Dick Van Dyke as Billy Bright – the original title of the film – and Michele Lee as Bright's love interest, Reiner himself and Mickey Rooney as Bright's friend and work colleagues. Reiner wrote the screenplay with Aaron Rueben, which was inspired by the end of silent film era, and in part, by the life of silent film superstar Buster Keaton.

    After Billy Bright's film career is all washed up he is living in a crummy litttle apartment counting down his final days. He wakes at 4:30am in the morning and sits down to watch tv. He watches the end of an unidentified Columbia Scrappy cartoon when suddenly one of his old Billy Bright comidie, "Forget-Me-Not", comes on as the movie ends.

    I'll post what I posted in the old thread. I bet it stumps everybody a second time! I'n the AWESOME Beat Club Video version of "I'm Eighteen" by The Alice Cooper Group, there are several cartoon characters that appear in the bizarre style that backgrounds appeared in in those videos. Those images aren't cartoons technically, but this gem belongs imo.

    Since I'm a fan of MST3K, there's a movie that Mike Nelson and the robots Servo and Crow riff called Kitten with a Whip.

    One scene, the TV is playing the Sylvester cartoon Canned Feud!
