Cinema du Sanity: the summer-of-despair issue

Not available on newsstands anywhere:

Cinema du Sanity Aug 1 2013 Disney’s Planes: Really? This is what we’ve come to? Christ Almighty. *sigh* Plus: What next? Bikes? Boats? just kill us now. Special Investigation: Planes, Cars, Turbo: all the same film? we look at the evid-- oh, fuck it, what’s the point?

easter eggs
  • Let me take a wild guess: there will be exactly one female-coded plane with a name.

  • I think there’s two, actually. One of them is pink!

  • RogerBW

    Goodness, I think the second one’s meant to be a DH.88. Heresy!

  • Matt Clayton

    Turbo is about racing snails, not cars. But I can see where it would blur with the other two.

  • LaSargenta

    With eyelashes, amirite?

  • to be fair, Cars and Cars II made money…

  • Good movies make money too.

  • And Planes is about planes, not cars. So, totally different, then.

  • RogerBW

    Well, obviously. Whole different type of fuel and everything.

    Oh, and here’s something perverse: one of the characters is getting a paint job localised to each area where the film’s being shown.
    And the sequel already has a release date.

  • Not… always. (thinks back to Out of Sight in 1998 barely making 30 million during its release… shoulda been raking in Pulp Fiction level of moolah)

    I saw a car with long, rubbery eyelashes on its headlights in real life, at my local library. It had a male driver and the car was not pink, but a black beater.

    I see a VW with eyelashes around my neighborhood at least once a week. It looks a lot like this:

    I like to assume the driver is a large man with tattoos.

    “By the same company that bought you: Toy Story, The Incredibles and……”

    Holy crap, that burns

  • Well, no, not always. But not all bad movies make money, either. So, all other things being equal, why not make good movies?
