Hey folks, Harry here... our Licensing Show spy god, Pitdoc, who last year brought us our first look at HELLBOY has gone picture crazy. This set is the future of animation, minus THE CORPSE BRIDE which we brought you yesterday... and other than that film, only the WALLACE & GROMIT movie fills me with glee. The rest... well are frankly kinda colorfully lame. Check it out!

    Charlotte's Web

    by Niloc

    Urg... sickly sweet, reminds me of the Simpsons episode where they visit a petting zoo and each lamb is disgustingly cuter than the last. Caught a bit of "Charlotte's Web 2" on cable, on Starz I think, and that had the same horrible "art" style as these pics, couldn't stand it for more than 10 minutes but the art was bad, animation was bad and it had no where near the charm or heart of the old animated version (or of course the book).

    Wallace and Gromit feature title

    by Tar Heel

    Doesn't the Wallace and Gromit movie have a title: "Curse of the Wererabbit" or something like that? Thank God for Pixar, Aardman and other shops that still know how to put out quality animated pictures. (Cough, Disney sucks, cough).

    Fans of 'Wallace and Gromit'...

    by workshed

    ...hope you've all seen 'Dougal and the Blue Cat' - the feature film of the 'Magic Roundabout' series from the sixties - as it's obvious that this was the inspiration for much of the style evolved later by Nick Park and is an acknowledged influence. It's in my top ten kids films EVER; no question about it. It's never been available on DVD (just VHS) but I have a sweet transfer should anyone want one. A cult classic and one which, in terms of story depth, will hopefully be emulated by W&G. My fave Aardmann animation is 'The Wrong Trousers' - it's up there with 'The General'(1927).

    Charlotte's Web

    by godric

    Okay, so Charlotte's Web looks kind of sweet and the artwork isn't anything groundbreaking, but c'mon, it's Charlotte's Web--a kids' story. You don't want some sort of new out-there style with hip characters spewing slang and pop-culture references. Save that for Dreamworks drivel. It's arguable that a new Charlotte's Web movie is needed, but if they're going to do it, simple and straightforward is the way to go.

    Charlotte's Web

    by Joey Jojo

    wasn't there supposed to be a live-action Charlotte's Web, done Babe style? That I can see. Redoing the story as a cheesy animation has already been done.

    That's actually a still from "Charlotte's Web 2"

    by Anna Valerious

    Charlotte's daughters and cardigan the lamb are both there...and the movie is already on video. And yes, they are making a live-action one. Now when are we going to see a live-action "U.S. Acres"? It'll be like "Babe" on crack!

  • Fuck Dreamworks. Shrek and Shrek 2 were good. Antz and this Shark Tale are fucking ripoffs of Pixar. Maybe they should stick to original ideas instead of ripping Pixar off a second time.

    "shrek blows goats"

    by Big_Kahuna

    way overrated film, with none of the attitude or satire it likes to think it has.

    by Alan Eagle

    Dreamworks has been, to the best of my knowledge, been working on Sharktale for longer than Nemo was in production. Its been like 4 years or something I think. Anyway, my point is that Dreamworks is not trying to replicate Nemo, as their project has been in development for as long as Pixar's film. As a memeber of the animation world myself, I find that word about productions travels fast, and no doubt both studios were aware of what was going on at the other. Sometimes creativity can be influenced by others ideas and thats part of the process (sometimes sadly)but the fact is both films are VASTLY different. Sharkslayer was supposed to be like an underwater Shrek, skewering Mob movies instead of fairy tales, but sadly i think the same censors that made them change the title have also ruined whatever edge this once promising film had. I hope for the best out of Sharktale, sometimes good movies just have bad trailers. We'll have to wait and see. Just please, no more "Cashing in on Nemo" comments"
