I finally got around to watching Wolfwalkers today. Unfortunately I had to torrent it because I'm not gonna pay for Apple Plus or whatever it's called just to watch one movie, I'll buy a physical copy if they ever make one just to support Cartoon Saloon though. It's a fairly basic retelling of an Irish folktale and it drags on a bit towards the end but god damn it's probably the most beautiful animated film released in the past 15 years (eat your heart out Spider-verse).

Mune: Guardian of the Moon

Despite it being french I didn't hate it.
It was pretty average in most ways but I expected worse. It doesn't stand out in any regard but is a ok animated movie with a relatively unique style and several scenes that are cool. I especially like the dream sequences that are done in a more traditional style rather then the normal 3dcgi.

3D animation for an ad for Lunar New Year of the Metal Ox. Be bullish!

 No.57106

First ep impression of the dragon prince is pretty negative.
I fucking hate when CGI uses limited inconsistent 12 frames a second animation. It makes my eyes hurt and there isn't budgetary reasons to do it.
You can tell it really wants to be anime but isn't too.
And it is already off to a anti-human pro-nature hippy dippy bullshit in even the opening.

Saving graces is most of the characters are kind of likable so far and their interactions are stock but serviceable.
First season only has 9 ep so I will at least watch it that far before giving my final judgment but I am not impressed with what I have seen in the first ep. Maybe it gets better but I am not holding my breath.

Finished all that has been released so far.

I can say with all honisty that it worse then Steaven Universe.

The only saving grace and the only reason I was able to make it through it is it was well paced as there was always a feeling of progress in the story due to the cast always needing to run off somewhere in a hurry.

Just about everything else has issues and it is SJW in really stupid ways.
Actually in general it is clear that most people involved didn't know what the fuck they were doing.
Story has issues, animation hurts my eyes, dialog is cringy, every time they try to have a message/moral/lesson/point they stumble over themselves and fuck it up completely.
and the list just goes on.

I give it a 2 out of 5.
It's watchable but is annoying in it's incompetents.
All that said, I am invested now so I will watch season 4 when it comes out.
I have a bad habit of sticking with shitty show just because I want to see how badly they fuck up the end.

Amphibia suprises me more and more. The backstory for Maddie, in the Maddie and Marcy chapter was perfectly done, and the dark humour, and references to horror movies was the ice on the cake.

Does anybody here have a thing for obscure animation? Things like old stop motion shorts and soviet animation. It’s like watching cartoons from another universe. I think there’s 2 stop motion shorts of the hobbit . The first one is J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit (1966) and the other one is called Skazochnoe puteshestvie mistera Bilbo Begginsa, Khobbita. Try with “Russian Hobbit”

I just read a news report on RT about Disney rejecting scripts because they are not enough inclusive, even if the scripts are great. I don’t know is this is true, but it won’t surprise me. I wonder if CN, nickelodeon, Netflix and the other streaming platforms do the same. Political correctness is gonna kill everything, from cartoons to music, and even history and literature. Someday some people would say Shakespeare, Cervantes and almost any other writer is a white supremacist because their works are not inclusive.

 No.57854

>>57838
Other major networks (unrelated to cartoons) have been doing similar shit for years.
Like rejecting shows that are "too male focused" so threw away a sure money maker that was the show Sylvester Stallone and Doth Lundgren were pitching around like a couple years ago for that reason.
I think it will effect cartoons a little less because it is easier to superficially change characters during the pitch/writing phase unless it's based on some source material.

>wah, there aren't enough coloreds

fuck it, they are all anthro monkeys now, you happy.
>wah, that's racist
No, everybody is a monkey in the show now. It's equal monkey with no human races like planet of the apes or something.
>Are you mansplaining my own feelings?
>I feel it's racist so it is and I don't have to explain myself
I can't mansplain because I identify as a masculine presenting trans succubus.
>oh no, sorry for misgendering you
>Such a brave succubus, I guess we can give you a shot


Or something along those lines.

I just want more action shows with good animation regardless of the politics of the people or companies involved, but SJW types tend to dislike such shows because they appeal to boys, who they hate and require talent which they don't have.

I always liked the cartoons or comics were the main character travels to another world, but the only thing I don’t like about amphibia is how the world, at least the town where the characters live, is a little bit generic. The show should be more exotic, like the books of Jack Vance or like Morrowind. To Anne, everything should be new for her; she should be amazed just for being in another world. The same goes for The Owl House. Those worlds don’t need talent shows, food criticism, prom nights or their own version of instagram.

Great news.
The Venture Bros., Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Metalocalypse are all getting new movies that pick things up where they left off.

Something similar to additional references included with character bibles.

I read in Wikipedia about a sequel of Labyrinth who is going to be made by Marvel Studios. I wonder if they will use puppets or if Brian Froud is going to do the designs, and who is gonna write it. I really hope Trevor Jones will do the ost again. Jareth will not be the same without David Bowie, is really a shame he died without acting the character again. Neil Gaiman in The View from the Cheap Seats says, there’s a version of Labyrinth of 3 hours of length, I wonder if the Jim Henson Company will release that version for the 40 anniversary in 2026.

I wouldnt expect too much from it, I watched their castlevania series and it started out ok, following the real events, but quickly went out the window. They basically rushed through the entire main story of castlevania 3 so that they could start doing OC shit, which was unsurprisingly, shit. They even fucked up the Bloody Tears cover in the battle with dracula and made it feel so weak and dramatic when the original was deliberately powerful and energetic. They portrayed dracula as some washed up fool when in reality it should have been like Jojo vs Dio tier levels of epic. I can't forgive netflix for fucking up so bad.

If you want more action cartoons, give it a try to the ones in pics related. I highly recommend the Spawn cartoon of HBO, is the only Adult cartoon that deserves the name.

Not that I even care. I was into he-man when I was 4 and 5 but by the time I was 8 I lost interest in anything to do with he-man. Had too much dead air and the world never felt all that interesting. It wasn't a place I could imagine adventuring in. So once I got over
>Cool sword makes guy strong when catchphrase is said
I was over the whole franchise.

Maybe if they really do something special with the world building and fix the pacing problems that the series has always had then I might get invested. A pretty art style isn't enough to convince me that it won't be lame.

At least from the trailer it looks they’re gonna focus on the fight scenes, which I think could be a good direction considering the original’s combat was basically he-man transforms and smacks skeleton upside the head and that’s it.

I remember enjoying some of the episodes on late night [as], but then it got a pretentious "ironic fandom", similar to 12 Oz. PFFR's current cartoon, The Shivering Truth, is pretty cool though. Real stop motion that isn't stylized CG is really rare these days, and the fact that it's experimental claymation makes me appreciate the sentiment even more. ShadowMachine's stuff is usually pretty crappy looking, aside from season 2-3 of Moral Orel & Frankenhole, but TST is really well made.

Had a interesting plot and premise, even ok writing overall. The story is good.
The main problem is the execution. It looks really bad. The animation is amateurish and stilted, the models are mediocre and the texturing is offensive in how bad it is. The lighting is simplistic, just every visual aspect is mediocre or worse.
Ashamed because the voice work of most of the characters makes it almost tolerable. Even for a low budget small studio project this poor level of execution isn't really acceptable.

In fact I would say that the overall whole thing is interesting ideas executed poorly. Oh, and all of the spliced creatures including the boy are annoying and ugly. Just saying.

Legend of Deification also know as Jiang Ziya

The writing was a bit weak but the studios involved pulled out all the stops to make it one of the most visually stunning animated features I have seen from 2020.
It really is a treat to behold. Just wish the story and concept was a bit better fleshed out.
It is refreshing to see something recent out of China that isn't blatantly propaganda and instead stand on their own as a work of art and expression.

I recommend it if you want to look at something pretty and/or have some background knowledge in Chinese folklore.

Oh god is it a stinker. Cheap, ugly, stupid, and paced poorly to be boring.
Worst yet it is even more in your face with it's dumb eco/political message then FernGully. Very obnoxious.
You can probably also tell it's one of those thing made for children by someone who bearly interacts with children kind of thing from the writing and overall structure.
Just dreadful in every regard.
1 out of 5. Don't waste your time.

It somehow wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Still bad.
Still a 1 out of 5
but I have seen worse and it isn't boring so that is something. Plus it's short so it is over before it gets too annoying. Seen reviews saying it is a dumpster fire, can confirm is indeed a dumpster fire.

I found this Don Quixote cartoon made in Spain. The animation is really bad and the cartoon only adapts chapters from the first’s part, but, I think it was a nice attempt to produce a cartoon based in one of the classics of literature, because no network or streaming service in these times would even think in producing something that has real culture in it. Is there any cartoon or animated short that do the same with Shakespeare or Goethe?

I had skimmed over a Family Guy episode called "Brian's Play", and honestly, a bunch of missed opportunities.

Brian makes a play, it actually goes well so Stewie makes a play in a day, Brian reads it, gets real jealous, tells Stewie the play's bad and eventually tries to destroy it. Stewie finds out, tells him off spectacularly. In another rendition of Brian's play (where everything is still going well), Stewie rubs his success in Brian's face by saying he's going to Hollywood. They both go, some playwrights or something insult Brian's play without knowing he was the playwright, Stewie gives up on his play to make Brian feel bad, end.

So many missed lessons here and so many missed character growth opportunities. I feel like Brain was kind of an idiot lying to Stewie and trying to destroy the play but Stewie rubbing it in made him a dick. Him giving up on the play doesn't make him any less talented or a bad friend.

So many different lessons like how Brian's play was actually a huge success compared to his book, "Faster than the Speed of Love" ever was. No readers vs a huge crowd of people. A huge improvement and that affection he said he wanted. Brian's play was also praised very highly by critics. Him getting jealous is totally reasonable if not for Stewie being a genius already. As for those people who insulted his play, just ignore them. The lesson could be to focus on improvements instead of what you want to be in the future. So sad he let other people get in the way of his dream. By the way, obviously he was letting the reviews get to his head. Still, it's just another opportunity to tone down Brian's crappy personality traits and develop him as a better writer and person. In the end, it was one development and a bunch of take downs on his character. I wish he could have accepted his dream coming true and finally coming to peace with his writing or something. He's been a drunkard because of his "inability" to write for a while.

Any y'all like Infinity Train? I thought it was pretty cool and interesting. Especially first season, since the workings of the train were still pretty mysterious. While the series did focus on morals, it never got preachy. I also really liked that each season was so much different than the others. It kept things fresh. On the other hand, some episodes were pretty cringey. I guess what drew me in most was the memorable setting and characters. What did y'all think?

Why. It’s not only Netflix, is every network now. Why every cartoon needs to has his own gay or dike character? Those people exist, but it seems forced that almost every show has its own gay couple. The most forced one I know is Luz and Amity from the owl house. Amity develops a crush on Luz only in a few episodes, even if she hated her before. Also, I can´t stop noticing Amity dyes his hair just the same color Dana Terrace used to dye his own hair. Maybe is a coincidence.
I don’t care if a character is gay; the thing I can’t understand is this

>X character develops a crush on another character of the same Gender


>Y character also has a crush on the X character. Even if he/she used to have a crush for a character of the opposite sex.


>Now they are a couple.


The only thing I know where one of the characters shows anger or disgust for being kissed by a character of his same sex is the last issue of Miracleman written by Neil Gaiman. I know this thread is for cartoons, but this was the only example I know

The Willoughbys was alright.
Probably the silliest thing I have seen in months. Just a fun movie. Story is a bit weak and it's all over the place but it is very oddly satisfying by the end.

The visual style is pretty intresting too.
Not the greatest thing ever or some sort of instant classic but it is just a fun silly movie with a good spirit and a slightly dark edge.
Would highly recommend to actual children. As for adult animation fans, it's not bad but I think enjoyment strongly depends on mood.
I liked it, but I was in the mood for what it was.

I hear it's good but still haven't got around to watching it.
I also heard it got canceled, so that means while it was popular with adult/older animation fans actually children probably weren't wild about it and it underpreformed in the numbers or in merch sells. Shame since streaming in theory should open the way to shows with a older audience should still be able to find their place and get funded.

Maybe tech will keep progressing so that it will get even cheaper and easier for small teams to make quality animation on really small budgets.

Watched the animated adaptation of Mimi and the Mountain Dragon that the BBC came out with a few years ago.

It was interesting that rather then sound effects they instead made uses of a full orchestra for everything but human voices.
It was around 25 minutes so long enough to tell the full story without sticking around to the point of being boring. The art is a interesting take, as it isn't quite like the story book, it's more doing it's own thing, but it still looks nice and the animation is alright for what it is. Nothing masterful but fluid and gets the job done.
Overall I think it is a good animated adaptation. I recommenced giving it a watch if you got a half hour to kill. It at the very least sounds nice and is pretty relaxing due to the music focus.

Waltz with Bashir

I am shocked I never heard of this movie before now.
Was a mild pain to find, and the subtitled version sucks ass because the subs are timed wrong (at least in the ones I could find) but the dub is serviceable.

Anyway, the way I would describe the movie is mature. Not in the way it is normally used when referring to media, but as in the way it handles such difficult and fucked up subject matter in a way that is personal, accurate, and yet in a way somehow respectful and with just enough restraint to prevent any portion of it from being tasteless. Coupled with the tone and thematic device of memories and stories of the past, just gives it the feel of mature men recollections of some of the worst times of their lives. Men with years and whole other lives to reflect on those events and gain perspective.

It's one of those good movies that make you feel like shit. I like it, I respect as a work of art, but I probably wont watch it again.

Finally got around to watching Fire and Ice by Ralph Bakshi.
Holy shit does it look great. While the plot is a bit thin everything else makes up for it. It is also the best use of rotoscoping I have ever seen, and proof that it can work if you have a talented team that knows what the hell they are doing, even if some of the action felt "floaty" at times.
Also Teegra is painfully hot, even blowing most anime succubi out of the water. Bonk me with the horny stick all you want but "god damn she fine" is all I got to say on the subject.

Anyway it is a great looking film and overall a good action/adventure/fantasy film all be it a bit on the simple side.
I highly recommend it.

How is We bare bears, Centaur world,Craig of the Creek, Big City Greens, or Amphibia calarts exactly?
The only thing visually similar about them is related to color use, which may have more to do with the tools used then style.
And as far as I can tell most/all the people involved in the production of those shows didn't actually go to California Institute of the Arts, nor is the typical "calarts style" employed. It would be great if you could actually define exactly what you mean by "calarts".

I just seems to me to be a useless term for whatever trend in American animation someone personally doesn't like. So the meaning changes as taste and trends change, but it's always a generic insult and it rarely has much to do with California Institute of the Arts in any way.

There isn't at all
How do any of these look even remotely the same?
All are called calarts and none of them are stylistically similar enough to make whatever the fuck you can't seem to explain obvious.
The term is pointless and you don't know what you are talking about. You just expect people to somehow just know what your personal definition of a non-word is and act like it has ever had descriptive qualities that anyone has ever agreed on.
And for what reason?

Even if calarts had a coherent and agreed upon meaning, which it doesn't, it doesn't seem to mean much if things can vary so wildly in apparent and it isn't a indication of quality, labor, or talent on the part of the creators.

So in the end you can functionally swap out the word calarts and change the meaning of >>59712
to
>Will stuff I don't like but can't explain why still be a thing in this decade? I wonder if stuff I don't like will be the style of this decade. Or maybe ways of doing a face I don't like will be here forever?
