Quite possibly the most scathing indictment of any movie I have ever heard

It's exactly the same story, almost told in the exact same way (almost down to the same shots and dialogue).

There are a few surprises here and there; a song that's sung in a totally different style, a few gags that you're expecting that take a different turn.

The animation is quite stunning, though I felt like there was some magic lost in the use of more realistic animation that the cartoon one had.

For me, it was a trip down memory lane. Maybe like playing the remastered version of a game you like that you've played a lot of. The animation is new but you're still going down familiar territory.

My 5 year old niece fell asleep during it. Not sure if it was because she thought it was boring, or because she'd had a late one the night before (she was on school holidays). She said after that she would have rather have gone to Pets 2.

Hmmm...guess I'll give it a whirl and see. I liked the original. Always get a bit doubtful when Hollywood "re-does" and old movie I like. Just not the same.

Jon Favreau is also the creator and head writer for the new Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. He hasn't directed any of the episodes but he has indicated that he's interested in doing that if there's a season 2.

The trailer looks bad ass, though it doesn't really hint at a story beyond "Look at this bounty hunter": https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7heq19

I've heard it's not bad. apparently the new Scar is more malevolent, and yet somehow better.

Side note, new Aladdin wasn't bad. new Jafar was the standout for me, a believeable motivation, and consistent to the end, to his downfall. Even Will Smith as the Genie wasn't terrible, coming at it from an open mind, remembering that he is very distinctly NOT Robin Williams. He let it down in a few spots, but that's more his limitations as an actor, than any real lack of effort.

I Wish they had made Ender's Game much better. Disappointed with that movie. Loved the book.

What film became, in August 2019, the highest-grossing film domestically (USA) of all time with an MPAA rating of G?

nah endgame is global gross record and domestic gross is force awakens.

also: movie studios don't normally break out domestic(US) box office. they break out the domestic market.

Enders Shadow would have made a better film IMO. Biggest loved book to movie blunder for me was Eragon.
