F16 - A Death In The Family by jbwarner86 F16 - A Death In The Family by jbwarner86
I knew I had to do a story about that stupid live-action Yogi Bear movie, but I also knew there was no way in hell I'd ever willingly sit down and watch the damn thing. So instead, I chose to focus on the after effects of the experience. I don't need to see any more than the trailer to know that this movie hurts.

I heard from Spill.com compare to other films like Alvin and the Chimpmunk, its not that bad

Besides Yogi Bear was a pretty crappy cartoon in the first place, all Hanna Barbara cartoon are not that great

Now The Last Airbender on the other hand, was a complete rape of an actual good cartoon on the level of Batman and Robin

Believe it or not, the Yogi Bear movie wasn't bad. Sure it wasn't great or something I would watch over and over. but it was still better then Alvin and the Chipmunks and Underdog movies. However I didn't grow up with Yogi bear (I was always a Hong Kong Phooey and Jabberjaw fan) so that's probably why I didn't hate it. Plus there would be a lot of things you'd hate about it, like this films version of Ranger Smith, So I'd still say steer clear of it. At least it wasn't drowned in modern pop culture references nor did it have anything that the young people call "music" from this year.

These CGI/live-action films based from cartoons get more and more pointless each time.

Luckily, we have the first Yogi movie to drown out the horror.

Ooh, geez. I heard it was bad. How did you know from the trailer, though?

Either way, I DESPISE this recent trend of taking cartoons & remaking them into terrible live-action movies. I mean, it's been happening for a while, but there have been a LOT more coming out than normal. I hope that trend gets laid to rest for good.

I think the only reason we're getting elevendy-eight-bazillion live-action cartoon updates now is because Alvin and the Chipmunks was a surprise blockbuster three years ago. Everyone's trying to replicate that success.

Ugh, just catching a glimpse of that trailer, we all knew that movie was gonna suck so badly. Can't Hollywood EVER learn from their mistakes of doing live-action takes on childhood favorites, like "Scooby-Doo" or "Garfield"? It's like they've completely forgotten about the other way around doing a cartoon movie: a pencil and paper- sheesh! :XD:

I saw the previews for it and I think it's all spot on aside from the fact that it's CG. I don't know what everyone is complaining about. I grew up to the cartoon myself and don't feel my "childhood is dying".

There were only like 3 good cartoons that I watched in this past year: Chowder, Flapjack, and Adventure Time. I dunno about Sym-Bionic Titan, because I've never seen it, but I also like Regular Show!

That's what really pisses me off!!!
Why does Hollywood need to make a shitty live-action version of an already great cartoon?

What they don't know is that they are KILLING OUR CHILDHOOD!!!

To be honest if I were directing "Cats & Dogs" along with the second, I would've chosen both films to be strictly "Hand-Drawn" cuz' they all act and look like cartoons.

If they made a live-action movie out of my future films, I would go to those self-proclaimed directors and BEAT THE TALENTLESS SHIT OUT OF EM'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry if I overeacted...

The trailer was a prime example of how NOT to use 3D. I mean, Dreamworks may be somewhat obnoxious in their usage of it, but Yogi Bear manages top EVERYTHING.

Likewise - it'll save us all a lot of heartache and Internet Rage if we pretend it never happened and focus more on the original 'toons. They're no works of Disney either....but at least they were blessed with Daws Butler and Don Messick among other greats :)

That's rough, because that means that after the shitty adaptations of shitty cartoons, we have to suffer through shitty movies based on classic characters.

Because Yogi Bear is an old classic cartoon and a title that people will immediately recognize and remember. If a project already has a popular name then it doesn't have to make one on its own while competing with other films.
