How was Dora and the Lost City of Gold one of the better films I’ve seen this year? While the high school stuff was exactly as uncomfortable and awkward as you’d expect, every other part of the movie was great. It had good jokes, good acting, and also some rather surprising anti-imperialist themes. I’d give it a B plus.

I am really curious about how they would take a preschooler's television show and turn it into a movie that is a bit mature and send it to theaters. What is the point of that? I'm sure that the young children who watch the cartoon on Nick Jr. would be a bit baffled as to why they turned their cartoon into a totally different live-action movie.

The point is (or seems to be) that studios are making massive revenues transforming cartoon worlds into physical "realitiy shows" in the movies and on stage.

Yeah but I still think it would definitely cause resentment with the age demographic of the original show since they wouldn't be able to see it. And I'm saying this as someone who DIDN'T grow up watching Nick Jr. (I grew up with the Disney Channel).

I feel like you’re over estimating how mature this movie is. There’s nothing in here that someone in the tv shows target demographic couldn’t handle.

Looking at the rating, you are probably right as around the age that the demographic for the television show is was when I first went to see my first PG movie. To be honest, all I had to go on was the commercial where someone said Dora brought a knife to school. I do hope that if any kids watch that they don't emulate it. Yeah I know I am being paranoid but with everything that has been going on recently I get to be. :|

That’s part of a joke where she brings a bunch of jungle survival gear to school, because her parents did a terrible job of preparing her for civilization after spending sixteen years in the jungle (her dad thought it was more important to try to explain rave music to her, because he’s a comedy relief character). It’s there as a fish out of water joke, and to explain why she has all her gear with her once she and her friends get kidnapped and sent back to the jungle.

I'm just sort of wondering WHY her parents and her spent 16 years in the jungle at that point unless they were trapped. I would have thought that parents would have done everything in their power to get their daughter out of a dangerous situation like that.

Saw "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood". Tom Hanks nails Fred Rogers, although at times the character comes off more like Yoda. The story's kinda pedestrian but the way they weave the sets, characters, and ambience of the show through the realities of a man and a family in crisis is clever and original as all get out. Daniel Tiger has a cameo, too.

I went to see "Frozen 2" last week and even though I didn't see the first one nor did I really like it because I thought it was way too overplayed, the movie was enjoyable.

Saw "Rise of Skywalker" and ... Um ... It was okay. Seemed like it recycled a lot of the plot from the very first movie, and it dragged in places but not bad overall. Thought more people on the forum would have commented on it.....

Just went and saw the second Jumanji movie tonight. I have to say, I wasn't really a big fan of it. Though that might be because I didn't see the first movie when they went into the game. I thought they could stand alone. Boy how wrong I was. I guess it was OK.

Saw "Little Women" last night. Very fine period piece and very touching story, familiar though it is.

There were five other folks in the theatre with me and the missus so this flick's about run its course, I guess.

Has it always had low attendance or is that a new thing that just started if you know?

Not sure if there's a trend there or not. My impression - I'm eager to be corrected - is that a theatre contracts to show a movie for a certain block of time, say three weeks. However, the number of people who go see it will eventually dwindle based on [1] the number of folks in the theatre's operational radius, [2] the appeal of and "buzz" around the movie, [3] the number of daily showings, and [4] the weather. In this case, we were probably going pretty late in the cycle.

Same with tonight. Went to see "1917", great flick, but there were maybe twenty people present.

If it is very late in the cycle that the movie stays in the theater, then like you said that would be why attendance has gone down.

Sorry. When I replied back to you I was dealing with my dying grandmother and I am always overly sensitive and perceive some replies to be an attack. <_>

Hardly a problem, friend. I figured with all you were going through, you might be feeling pretty vulnerable and hurt. Again, I'm just sorry for your grief.

Just seen Sonic The Hedgehog today. The greatest video game adaptation on the silver screen. Looking forward to Sonic The Hedgehog 2. (Guess who debut in the sequel. No spoilers but let's just say we haven't heard the last of Robotnik.)

I'm not entirely convinced that the whole thing wasn't just a marketing ploy; make a horrendous rendition of Sonic for the trailer to garner attention, while intending all the while to change Sonic's appearance for the release of the movie. If that was the plan, it worked very well.

From what I read, the guys in charge knew Sonic fans wouldn't like it, but thought it would be accepted by the general public because they liked the Transformers and Ninja Turtles with more realistic design, despite the fact that EVERYONE ELSE involved said don't do that.

Then the trailer was released, and the guys in charge learned the hard way how wrong they were. It cost an estimated $5 million extra to fix things.

So the problem was out-of-touch suits.

Moral of the story: if you are behind making a movie on a video game character and you have no clue about the game he comes from or how to make him look, talk to people who actually are fans of the game.
