  • In my opinion, Slaughterhouse, too, could have made a great musical. In the right hands, of course. Not sure if anyone would or even would be allowed to try their hands on it now, but it'd be interesting to see how they'd structure it.
  • Hi again! Lots have happened here since I popped in last, but I feel like I don't have too much to contribute to the new discussions. A lot of good reads to catch up on, at least.
  • I got tickets!! For the July 2nd show, to be precise. Figured it'd be easier to go on a Thursday. Glad they're doing two evenings.
  • I'm bumping this because Aladdin is doing so well... The Tony Awards. The Drama Desk Awards. Both of those have Aladdin for Best Musical AND score/music/lyrics and it's just really really amazing to me. :) Fingers crossed for some wins! I've heard o…

  • ^ I surprisingly find a lot of people don't care about film editing when it comes to shows. A lot of people are satisfied with awful bootleg quality from a handheld camera taped in the audience, after all. The archives can't be worse than a lot of …
  • ^ Burton's Sweeney Todd is a part of what made me not want him to do it so it's interesting that you should say that. I like the Sweeney Todd-movie well enough, but I don't love it. Though I'm not sure if Burton or John Logan (the screenwriter) is t…
  • I don't have special memories of this one, either. I can't remember ever watching it as a child... With that said: I enjoy it an awful lot, it's one of my favourites even with all the time related-plot holes in it. ;) Belle is an awesome character a…
  • I remember loaning the movie on VHS from the library all the time. I really loved it. I remember sitting and rewinding Part of Your World so I could write down all the lyrics because I loved that song. (In Norwegian, my mother tongue.) I remember p…
  • Oh god, I can't stand Pinocchio. Then again, I haven't watched since I was a child, and I was absolutely traumatized by every single bit of anything in it. Even the thought of watching it scares the hell out of me. :P I also don't really care for t…
  • "Strong as ten regular men, down on one knee" doesn't even make that much sense and I haven't heard that rumour ever, so I'm glad to hear it's probably fake. ;) -- As for Disney changing lyrics... I don't mind the changes at all when it comes to "…
  • Hah, I wish! I'm already doubting that my bank account will allow for a NYC trip... Transatlantic flights are really more expensive than they should be. ;)

  • I saw NChick's review of The Little Mermaid, but in general Paw doesn't seem to mind if other people have reviewed x movie before or not for his reviews. I don't think overlapping is a very big deal, several people on there did The Room, for one. So…
  • So... Broadway? http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/07/mary-poppins-to-fly-off-as-aladdin-lands-on-broadway/ I mean, it might just be a rumour still, but as far as I've heard all performances so far of the show as is have been pretty success…
  • I was just about to post a thread about Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast (also, Aladdin) in the Disney Parks, but luckily I decided to look through the existing threads before I did so since this mostly seem to fit! :) -- I recently visit…
  • I'm a big fan of Paw so I really enjoyed watching those reviews as he's posted them. He always seems to have done research on what he's talking about, and I can totally appreciate that. I'm hoping he'll cover The Little Mermaid at one point too. I…
  • As I said, I mostly know Stamatopoulous from his work on Community, but he did write one of the best episodes ("Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas", which was also made in stop-motion). I really need to check out that show, though, I've never heard of …
  • @TeenageFan - Yeah, I love Brave too. @Tacowiz - I think Trousdale and Wise would be a good choice. I was surprised to find out that they've been working on an upcoming Dreamworks live action/animation hybrid film. Maybe it's time for a career com…
  • I'm not a fan of either MacFarlane or Parker/Stone's shows, to be honest, but I also don't know enough about either of them to argue against them. Another person I know I wouldn't want to do it who I wouldn't be surprised if other suggested is Tim…
  • ^ That actually sounds pretty cool to me. I'd love to hear songs cut from the film and play recorded by a cast. Though I don't see it as something that would be likely to happen, I'd love it if it did. I went to Walt Disney World this month for th…
  • Wow. I really love seeing that. I'm in the "I don't care that it's not in the Director's Cut version, but damn I wish they included it as bonus material on the Blu-Ray"-camp, though. It's awesome finally seeing it, but I can also see why most of it …
  • Yeah, I was thinking of both The Incredibles and The Iron Giant, plus he also did Ratatouille. I don't know if his Pixar work can be considered particularly "dark", but it does have an emotional edge that makes me think he might pull it off. And I…
  • I love all of those Directors you mentioned. I'm surprised you brought up Stamatopoulos, I wouldn't have thought of him as a director initially. (I mostly know him for his work on Community as writer/producer/consultant. Well, and acting.) But yes, …
  • "Did anyone else notice in the making-of featurette on the blu-ray (and previously on the old DVD release) they interview David Geffen who talks about that the idea for Little Shop on paper is a horrible idea. Then the narrator says "Well, Geffen tu…
  • I have this weird idea that Arthur Darvill might make a decent Seymour in a film adaptation. I'm not sure if anyone knows him; He's mostly known as Rory from Doctor Who, and he's also a singer (he had a band called edmund a while back). I mean, he…
  • I'm going to be introducing my friends who haven't seen LSoH yet to the movie/play with the Director's Cut and it'll be interesting seeing a first viewer's reaction to the Director's Cut-ending, since I saw the other ending first myself and then lat…
  • Yeah, I definitively understand WHY they didn't do it and I don't really blame them, I just think it's sad that it means we probably won't ever see those scenes. I can't say for sure since I don't have the new one yet, but the DVD seems to have th…
  • ^ I also feel that way. On one hand, it's really fantastic that they managed to dig up and give us the original ending and they restored it. On the other, there's so much more we also want to see that didn't make the final cut or that they simply di…
  • Sorry for the double post, but does anyone know if this is a US only release? I've failed to find it on any non-US websites and even the UK Amazon-website says that the Blu-Ray is a US-import. Imports are more expensive, obviously, but I wouldn'…
  • I'm glad you liked that! :) I think it has a great flow, but it's a bit more straight-forward then I had expected and that put me off a bit. Listening to "Suddenly Seymour" a few more times, I realise I actually like it. And I'm not usually a fan o…
  • Obviously his incredible manliness. I seem to recall once hearing a song dedicated to that. ;)
