Bill -

Oh gosh, how could I have forgotten that film?

Who Framed

Roger Rabbit
has to be one of my favorite animated cross-overs of all time. I remember when I

first saw that as I kid I thought, "Woah". The thing had to be the most astonishing film I'd ever seen

in my life at that time, and it still is...come to think of it. It had me absolutely convinced that toons were

real -- scariest, yet coolest, thing in the universe.

To this day, I'm still scared of it. And yet,

it's one of those movies that you just can't stop watching.... My dad almost got

to work on it actually, but something came up and he didn't get to assist in the animation. You can imagine how

much we all regret that now. (snigger) :P

Mitch - Your dad got a chance to work on it but didn't ? I am amazed!!! Yeah, that has to be my

favorite movie of all time. It thrilled me as a kid (even though I'm 15 right now) and is one of the reasons

I've decided on a career in animation. I absolutely love it!!!!! :D

Bill - Yep -- he came this close to working on the

thing, but alas!...it didn't happen. It sucks. Well, actually...he did do some rough animation on Jessica Rabbit

before-hand, but that stuff never made the cut.

And awesome -- good for you! That makes two of us who

will go into the animation field. ;)

Another film I love is Watership Down.

It has to be the most depressing little feature I've ever seen in my life, but it sure is beautifully done. I

had a chance to (finally) read the book only a few weeks back, and it was just lovely. The film makes it seem ten

times more violent, though. Heh.

Oooh! Sorry Mitch, but

Watership Down was maybe the freakiest movie I think I've ever seen!

The

book was preety good though...

Mitch- Here's my favorite line from Roger Rabbit...

Roger: Yeah, check the

probait. Why, my uncle Thumper had a problem with his probait, and he had to take these big pills and drink lots

of water.

Gasduude - Haha -- I agree. It was pretty frightening in

parts....

Bill -

Not prostate, you idiot.

Probait!
- Eddie

:lol:

Yeah, I love all those lines. The whole thing with Mickey

Mouse was just classic.

I have only seen the end of the Roger Rabbit movie. I still don't understand it. Maybe next

time, I'll watch the whole thing through.

What's your favorite action movie?

CountSolo: Hitchcock films RULE! You

must see at least one.. no.. FIVE before you die, lol. Psycho is definitely his most popular, but there are

others that are wonderful as well. Vertigo took my breath away, and Rear Window was great as well.

North

by Northwest was awesome... great music, and what was great were the scenes without ANY music. I recently saw

Torn Curtain, which was cool for Paul Newman and Julie Andrews, but not his best work. Oooh, I need to watch more

of Hitchcock!

I saw Last Mimzy recently. Was good, but I think I had

the giggles or something, either that or the parts I thought were supposed to be serious were actually supposed

to be funny and that was okay that I laughed ... I dunno.

I've got '24 Hour Party People' coming in the

mail, and I should be getting Eragon this weekend. Should be. =P

Well, aside from the

Incredibles? I have a few. But when you say action, do you mean just straight on action, or is action/adventure a

possibility?

It can be any type of action or

action/adventure movie.

Well, there is a long list. If the Incredibles

doesn't count, I love Pirates, First Knight, James Bond, National Treasure, Heroic movies, Tomb Raider, the list

keeps going.

Favorite action/adventure films:

Indiana Jones

series
The Lord of the Rings (more of a drama, action/adventure mix)


Jurassic Park series
Star Wars series

I

like pretty much any action/adventure film, as long as the story is well-constructed and "solid".
