when retro becomes current-o

see, the most recent [teen girl squad] makes a great refrence to an [old cartoon i grew up on] that most people of this generation would not likely get, except that now said old cartoon is going to be made into a [live action movie] based on the box office success of another [film adaptation of a cartoon classic] that in my opinion was so wrteched that it made me want to [poke my eyes out].

the rest of the teen girl squad is pretty great too, but i don't know if it tops the genius that was the valentine's day edition.

tag cloud:

The original voltron was good but not the shit they made a couple years later that was good awful 3D computer generated bullshit.

I didn't see transformers because I knew it was going to suck ass and my expectations for this movie are just as high

the lion series was good. the one after that, which i think is what you're referring to involved all of the fleets of space cars and whatnot, and that didn't engage me as much as the lion series did.

There was one that took place even after that was all computer generated animation, it was really really bad. It was called Voltron: The Third Dimension

the valentine's day one is my favorite for being so damned surreal and awesome. that pushed the TGSs up to a new level for me. the past few have been great.

I am not looking forward to the live action Voltron.

I loved the animated series as a kid :(

Transformers (live). Haven't heard much about Voltron, buti'll reserve judgement until i hear if they retain original sotry etc

Well they f'ed up transformer nicely so I seriously doubt they can do voltron justice.

They're making voltron into a live action now? Sheesh! *forehead slap* fingers crossed that if they .must. touch it, they don't turn it into a huge steaming pile of crap. I know, I ask too much....

In the meantime, I'll have to get to a 'puter and look up the TGS bits you mentioned. Did ya have to make this entry so much darn work? Gosh! ;)

apparently a live-action robotech movie is in the works too.

That one I didn't watch so much. Still I say: shenannigans!! Are they so out of movie material that they feel the need to screw with and in some cases ruin staple 70s and 80s cartoonage? What's up with *that* mess, man?
