Must watch of the day: The Assassination of Yogi Bear by that Coward BooBoo

Published at: Dec. 13, 2010, 4:11 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I have not seen Yogi Bear. Unless a member of my family is kidnapped and the ransom is that I must watch Yogi Bear in a theater I will not watch that movie, which looks to be the most horrible cash-in piece of crap made this year.

But then I saw this brilliant piece of work by Edmund Earle that actually makes me kinda want to watch Yogi Bear, even though I know there is not a projectionist in the world cool enough to replace the movie's ending with the below.

It's really something and I just had to share it. Enjoy!

    that the cartoon Yogi Bear was 3rd rate animation coupled with D minus storytelling. So why all of the rage against this movie? If it turns out to be 2nd rate animation and a D plus story, isn't that an improvement? I mean, I'm not paying the price of admission, but who am I to judge people who take kids to it?

    It's not like Yogi Bear was high art or anything. The movie looks pretty much like a CGI version of the old cartoon.

    The parody is well done, but what I don't understand is...

    by Chewtoy

    What makes "Yogi Bear" worse than, say "Marmaduke"? Or "Garfield"? Or "Alvin and the Chipmunks"? Or "Scooby Doo"? Or the forthcoming "Smurfs"? I mean, honestly, this looks to be done to the same level as those, and yet people are acting like this is some kind of new crime never before visited upon humanity. I hear this kind of thing from people with kids who actually liked some of the ones I just listed, so I'm completely at a loss here.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 7:57 p.m. CST

    I think people hate new Yogi because...

    by Chief Joseph

    ...Yogi was a baby boomer property and thus "sacred". Whereas people look down on '80s properties because "they were just made to sell toys". Not that I agree with that (I don't), but that's my take.<br><br> Perhaps also, the CGI-live hybrid novelty has finally worn off and even the unwashed masses are finally tiring of them.

  • Dec. 13, 2010, 8:09 p.m. CST

    Seems to me

    by Juggernaut125

    <p>the movie is getting about the same treatment as Marmaduke, Garfield and Alving & The Chipmunks. Scooby, I believe had a little better press because it was the first of the cartoon properties to receive the CGI treatment, so it was too new to hate on right away.</p> <p>But we learned quickly how poorly these properties translate to live action and it is a good indicator on the quality we can expect from this film.</p> <p>The people who post on these boards are not 6 year old kids (although sometimes it's hard to be sure.) So the appeal of these films is less than minimal. And from what the trailers have shown, it's painfully obvious how bad the movie will be. Unless you're a masochist, I'd be very surprised if any talkbacker who posts here would ever WANT to see Yogi Bear in the theatre.</p> <p>Loved this alternate ending though.</p>

    agreed juggernaut

    by jameskpolk

    So the question really becomes this: Why does this site post trailers and reviews of films this audience will categorically loathe? My guess is that its the only way the editors of this site think they can keep their hit count up and sell advertising. Truth is, if they spent more time researching real news, it would achieve the same effect...

    by James_Camera_On

    You had to admit. I don't know if there is a higher critical meaning here, something about the state of contemporary culture and all that, but if the movie were this imaginative I would be there.

    Yogi sucked but we love Yogi!

    by jackofhearts29

    I like. Funny thing is how a rotten, unfunny piece of limited animation from the 60s, and then a sellout cash-in piece of kiddy garbage from 2010, can come to spawn characters that people actually love, nonetheless. I would say it shows the power of character... but really, it just shows the stickiness of nostalgia. Also, it's retarded how you post at the bottom and then new posts appear at the top. Just sayin'. Why do a site redesign at all if it's gonna be a 1/4-assed redesign that doesn't change anything about the look of the site? Hope the backend is as much crap as the front-end is.

    by TylerScruggs

    For a lack of a better word, it was bearable. It's not really something that should cause too big of a ruckus. It's better than the shitty Scooby-Doo and Garfield movies. The 3D was really good. It's not post-converted. Anna Farris' tits were real nice. The plot was semi-predictable and was a completely inoffensive film that the kids loved. With that said, this video is fantastic.

    by Lenny Nero

    ...does the movie seem to be any worse than a random episode of "Yogi Bear," but with live action? I'm certainly not going to defend the movie and will likely not watch it until cable, but it's not like it took something sacred and shat all over it.

    Hey There, it's Yogi Bear.

    by mrsheldrake

    First, I have to reveal that the toy that's survived everything with me is the Huckleberry Hound plush doll (red, not blue) that I got when I was four. And my first Halloween mask was Huck. Second, this was my favorite movie when I was five, in 1964. It's a journey movie. First Hanna Barbera movie ever. Gorgeous colors. Cindy Bear. Songs. Yogi is cast out of Jellystone and finally sent to the San Diego Zoo by Ranger Smith. His gurfren Cindy Bear misses him and goes off looking for him. She's kidnapped by a circus owner. Yogi finds out she's missing and hits the road to rescue her and bring her home. BIG stuff for a five year old. Of course, the year before I'd been taken to the theater (what's that?) by my father to see my first movie ever...The Sword In The Stone! How'd ya like THAT to be your first movie in a movie theater, suckers? And then have Kennedy killed shortly after. BIG year for a four year old.

    Nobody ever gave a shit about Yogi Bear, which is why this movie actually looks... somewhat alright? I have this feeling in my gut that it will be better than, say, Garfield or Marmaduke or Smurfs. Plus it's nice to see Dan Arkanoid getting work.

    Yogi's way before my time so I can't comment if he sucked or not (in relation to other TV cartoons at the time). I vaguely recall seeing his Christmas special as a kid and there was an attempted revivals in the '80s, Yogi's Treasure Hunt.

    by archer1949

    was one of the most underrated masterpieces of the past decade. A beautiful work of art dumped by the idiot studio only to be ignored by cave dwelling mouth breathers distracted by 'splosions. If you can't see it for the greatness it was, you should have no say in criticizing film at all. You're the same people who slobbered over Cameron's knob for the hollow, pre-digested pap that was fucking Avatar. Now, THAT shit was "drunk on self-importance".

    I will never tire of saying this...

    by HansBubi

    ...The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is one of the best movies of the past however many years (5 years? 10 years?). Watching this fan-made short was a surreal experience for me because, in my opinion, Jesse James was such an unseen, underrated movie that it never became part of our pop culture at all. I still know people that have never heard of the movie. It's interesting that the same year There Will Be Blood was released, which is also meticulously acted and directed, and also has an unhurried pace, yet by the end of the year I knew mainstream movie fans who were saying how "awesome" the movie was. Everyone was quoting the "milkshake" scene. Now, Paul Thomas Anderson is an incredible filmmaker, and There Will Be Blood is an impressive film, yet my point here is that Jesse James didn't and still doesn't seem to exist. To watch this short is like the first time seeing a Matrix parody, before it's been done a million times.

    the internet has moved on, people's attention spans are even shorter. they aren't going to have patience to wait for AICN to fix what must have been the most basic of codes to begin with. if you guys can't handle this site, how will you ever adapt? i'm hoping you'll launch with some slick, new effective format, but i doubt it. i've been checking back, and what is up to read isn't even comfortable to look at, so i pass by. it took me some trouble to even log in again and post this. it'll probably be my last until the 'reveal' (fingers crossed) of the new site. this is just poor form, fellas. it's embarrassing. i hope the site lives through it.

    Dominik's The Assassination of Jesse James

    by Knuckleduster

    One of the Best Films of the past decade. Right up there with Malick's The New World and Anderson's There Will Be Blood.

    Here's a good example of a blog post

    by reagon

    Devin put this video on Badass Digest yesterday with a much better explanation: ---------------------------------- Has a video ever gone viral so fast? This parody of Yogi Bear, which apes the ending of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, went online a couple of hours ago. There’s now an interview with the creator on the Wall Street Journal. Edmund Earle is an animator who saw the Yogi Bear trailer and thought it was ripe for parody. Now he’s finally gotten it done and it’s taken off in a huge way. Earle has no connection to the film, despite some internet reports. That said, I expect this to get the guy some work ASAP. Click here to check out Earle’s site. ---------------------------------- Sums it up doesn't it?

    Fuck all you mamby pamby's criticizing this.

    Obviously, whoever did this spent a lot of time on the characterizations, movements, camera angles--eyes, etc. It's not the typical "steal Charlie Brown Christmas Special and re-dub with profanities". And it's not like this is posted on You Tube.

    That's a Pro Job...

    by zinc_chameleon

    They're using Maya/Lightwave for the mesh modeling and texturing that's for sure; the compositing is first rate. Check out the 'moose head' blood splatter/shadow on the wall after Yogi drops. Very funny Easter Egg for Christmas.

    I have great empathy towards most movies but I was just bored out of my skull watching Jesse James; can't even remember much of it except that scene.

    Great Parody/Homage: Original is SUPERB

    by chromedome

    Finally got around to watching the blu-ray of the film: consistently superb from moment to moment. Dialog, performances, music, cinematography--all superb.<p>I like this parody, too, on many levels: one of those is it symbolically represents what this new film has done to the original Yogi Bear: brutal, pointless destruction.

    Smurfs are not the same as Yogi Bear

    by SithMenace

    There's a huge difference in the quality and storytelling for those cartoons. A cgi Smurfs movie set in the enchanted forest could have been incredibly well done. Just picture the movie done by Pixar, and you get an idea of how good it could have been. Instead, we get Enchanted starring the Smurfs, and a remixed theme song.<p>All I'm saying is that these kids movies don't have to shoot at the lcd. Again, look at Pixar or Disney or even (to a lesser degree) Dreamworks Animation, and you can see how a children's movie can resonate with adults without being a charmless cash in.

    Do the geeks (Quint included) who are in an uproar about the

    by Chance Farber

    3D CGI Yogi Bear movie not realize that praising and spreading this parody is going to make said movie a shit ton of extra money?? You're just enabling more movie studios to create more terrible bastardizations of classic properties. And the guy who created this "egdy" parody is going to get offered (if he's not on the studio payroll already) and accept a sweet plum job on Yogi Bear 2 & 3

    by mrsheldrake

    Gotta be true to your school. When I was 2-4, Huck and Yogi were my guys. That's all there is to it. Besides, I've done my due diligence lately, including a recent screening of jean Luc Godard's King Lear. I deserve some dumb yuks. I only hope there are no jokes about that dumb whore Sarah Palin.
