My girlfriend's sister hooks us up with their login, and she uses it to watch Snow Dogs.

The best part is proving to be all those 90s movies. Inner child made outer adult appreciate that FBI agent in Blank Check.

Second the want of shorts. I really like what they have but I would like as many as they can cram onto the service. Need my Donald fix. Also, Mickey's Christmas Carol is on there and still really good.

I've started my MCU watch through.  These movies have been talked to death but it has to be reiterated how bad Iron Man 2 is.  It reminded me way too much of Spider Man 3 in the scattershot plot, unlikable main character (but at least you could understand why Stark is acting that way) and multiple uninteresting villains.  I checked out about an hour in.

I have a soft spot for IM2. Even if it's not good, I still enjoy it on rewatch. The only MCU movie that I haven't been able to enjoy on rewatch is The Incredible Hulk, but that mostly has to do with my inability to see Ed Norton as any character other than Derek Vinyard, no matter what role he's playing.

I am pretty surprised that the shorts were not included initially. I don't think they need to do like the WWE Network and release these a few months later to garner interest or keep people purchasing it. This is the VOD model that is almost fool proof. I bought it for my four nieces as a Christmas gift, but I'm almost positive that the movie archives are going to be enough to keep people rolling over month to month for years as long as they have kids.

Forky asking "What Is Love" is probably my favorite thing on the whole platform.
A Horrible Premise - Episode 48: TEN CORGIS TAPED TOGETHER - an improv comedy game show podcast about creating 'horrible' tv shows.

Opposite Attractions - a comedy design podcast where two idiots design their very own theme parks. SEASON 7 IS HERE!


Buy my novel, Accounting For Glory, now in paperback!

I made a silly Disney Parks RPG. You should check it out here!

My daughter loves Forky, so we've been watching all of them. They're so cute, only about 5 minutes long, and well worth watching. We have to watch this one, but I loved What is Art.

Just watched Brink! and it is so wonderfully 90s. After watching The Luck of the Irish, I have Smart House to wrap things up but being able to re-live those 3 movies when I was right in that 12-15 pocket made Disney+ so worth it.

For those of you waiting for Turner and Hooch to be rebooted as a TV show, Josh Peck was just cast in the lead

Did they ever fix the aspect ratio on the Simpsons, by chance?

Apparently I watched Blank Check and the Lion King (animated real version) last night in a bit of a chemical haze. Wrong one got the praise, I can tell you that.

You're right, Lion King didn't deserve its praise. A kid named Macintosh living in a mansion in a pure 90s movie named Blank Check? Genius! Blank Check was one of the more memorable movies of my early 90s kid movies when I was a kid.

Today brought the announcement of a Mighty Ducks TV show where the Mighty Ducks are the bad guys when one of the Good Boys gets cut, him and his Gilmore Girls mom start a team to fight youth sports culture.

https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/the-mighty-ducks-sequel-series-lauren-graham-disney-plus-1203502197/

"The new “Mighty Ducks” is set in present day Minnesota, where the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan (Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex (Graham) set out to build their own ragtag team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of competitive youth sports."

Sounds like Evan and his Mom are dicks who can't handle not being talented enough to be on the Ducks team. Also why make the Ducks the bad guys? Just have Evan be on the Hawks like the original movie and get cut. You're telling me the Ducks stayed a powerhouse pee-wee team after Bombay moved on and the original group all left?

Turn it into a Breaking Bad type crime show and have Greg Goldberg as the meth ring leader.

Man, the old mugshot of Goldberg was sad.  The new one from a week or two back is even more frightening.

This is 2020, they have to fight the establishment and the Ducks as winners can no longer be the outcasts.

Tying to earlier discussions, I can only hope for a Blank Check reboot as a series where the 11-year old is a cryptocurrency hacker.

Blank Check had the hot FBI agent and the late Miguel Ferrer, plus that limo driver doing fake John Candy shit. Easy choice.

I'm planning on Camp Nowhere later. Then finish whatever wrestling show it was I was talking about. But Camp Nowhere can't be worse than it was when I was a kid.

Camp Nowhere didn't hold up well at all when I re-watched it a few years ago but stuff like Little Giants and House Arrest fared better for me.

A show based in the world of Love, Simon, a movie where a teenager comes out of the closet, was developed for this service.  The show was about a new kid facing similar challenges and called Love, Victor.  The studio was happy enough with the show they are working on Season 2 but it was not deemed family-friendly enough and has been moved to Hulu.

Following this news, it came out that the Lizzie McGuire reboot filmed row episodes and production went on hold.  Sounds like Hillary Duff and the show runner both are hoping for a move to Hulu.  I would assume the franchise being a true Disney project, the studio would want to reign it in but now I am curious what kind of content is in this grown up Lizzie McGuire that those involved feel family-friendly requests compromise it.
