    Normally your trailers are region locked so I can't view them, but I can see this?? <P> <P> Go to Hell and die!

  • June 30, 2009, 12:11 p.m. CST

    As execrable as this movie will be, the first one knew

    by CreasyBear

    how to market itself. I teach 4th graders, and before the first movie came out, they all repeated ad nauseum the trailer joke of the chipmunk doing the "Boom chika-bow-wow", not getting the porno reference (I hope) but still thinking it was pure comedy gold. I'm telling you, that was the funniest thing they had ever heard in their entire lives, all nine years of it. Even if you aren't Pixar, all you need to do to get tickets for a stupid kids' movie is one memorable trailer line for the kids to repeat endlessly.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:14 p.m. CST

    Hasn't Been the Same


    Since they changed the quality of the animation back in the 80s. Ever since then, it just hasn't been the Chipmunks for me. The original is still the best.<br><br>Although I use to love the Chipmunk Rocks album, with covers of things like Bette Davis Eyes, back in the 80s. Kinda glad to see the Chipmunks have transitioned to the next generation, given so many of the classics of my childhood haven't made the leap . . . my kids don't know nothin' about no Peabody and Sherman or Rocky and Bullwinkle, and are barely aware of The Flintsone and the Jetsons. So, kudos, Chipmunks. Job well done.

    by PacmanFever

    I've been saying kind of the same thing recently. I wonder if today's kids even really know of what, for whatever reason, I'm going to refer to as the Mickey/Bugs axis of classic cartoon characters. It looks like my generation (I was born in the last month of 86) is going to be the last that really grew up on the oft-cited "classic" characters (Rocky and Bullwinkle are pretty obscure here in the UK, so I'm not really talking about them); I haven't seen a classic animated short on TV for about twelve years. I think Tom & Jerry are hanging in there, I think kids still know them. The Pink Panther (my fav) I guess is still about thanks partly to the Steve Martin movies. But the Looney Tunes? I'm not so sure. The Joe Dante movie bombed (and that was six years ago) and so did that Loonatics thing as far as I can tell, which was a bastardisation anyway. It seems unimaginable but I'm not even sure kids would know Mickey and the Disney gang these days. Disney is too busy whoring the High School Musical/Hannah Montana/Joanas axis of evil, with their version of Whinnie the Pooh (for some reason) and the Pixar movies as their other main priorities. As for the classic Hannah-Barbera characters, maybe The Flintstones are still recognisable but other than that, forget it. I suppose a comeback in the future is possible, but I find it kind of sad there might be a genaration growing up now that will be the first in however long not to know or care about these characters. Having said that, I hear there's a live action Yogi Bear movie in the works, and a Tom and Jerry movie which explains how they met for fuck's sake, so be careful what you wish for!

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    ... I am going to be ALL OVER this movie when it comes out, and will likely see it ON Christmas Day, for pete's sake.<p><p>Yeah, I'm a freak, but the chipmunks rule. I am a little concerned about this footage because the fur detail is off from the 1st one and the little behavioral tics that made the animation work seem to be missing. However, that same thing happened in the first trailer - and it was fixed by the time the final movie was released.

    When my daughter was a preschooler (all of about 15 years ago), I had purchased a laserdisc player and started a collection of Disney and kids titles. What did she watch on a daily basis? Pinnochio, The Indian In The Cupboard, The Jungle Book, hell, she was obssessed with Hocus Pocus for a while. And I'd take that for a second over what's being served to children nowadays. Thank God for Pixar for keeping the quality in childrens films.

    First one was fun

    Remember all movies aren't made for one particular demographic. The first Chipmunks was a great flick for parents with kids who wanted something a parent could sit through without being bored to death. My kids will love this.

    And if you're a chipmunk fan, like me, then you're also well-served. Believe it or not, there are fanboys for everything. And they really kept the personalities of the characters and the integrity of their "world" mostly intact, so I was thankful for that. My only gripe was Jason Lee - his Dave lacked -any- of the understated anger that Dave needs. Dave is short-tempered and easily pissed-off. I would've gone for Luke Wilson.

    A) It was done by Pixar B) It respected the 80's material. and C) Animated, not that CGI load.
