AS ANTZ WAS to BUG'S LIFE, SO IS THE WILD to MADAGASCAR -- A BLATANT KNOCK-OFF. THE BIG DIFFERENCE? THIS TIME IT'S DISNEY DOING THE KNOCKING-OFF...

Who sez you can't make money without having an original idea? Certainly not Hollywood studio execs. This film (and its astounding resemblance to MADAGASCAR) perfectly personifies the dearth (and death?) of originality in Tinsel Town.

So, your two cents, please...

Apparently, they must think it's original because instead of the animals going from the city zoo to the jungle, it's from the jungle to the city zoo. Yeah, great logic there.

Let's see.  We have movies that are:
  • cheap knock-offs of other movies.  (most recent remakes and this movie)
  • cheap knock-offs of TV shows.  (Note to Hollywood:  If it wasn't good enough for movie theaters when they were first made, it's not good enough now.  Knock it off.)
  • cheap knock-offs of video games.  ("Doom."  Excellent game, bad movie)
And Hollywood wonders why box office sales are flat?

Give the TV-to-movie people a break. They have to do SOMETHING to make people buy their "Complete Season" boxsets.

WOW! So far, as of April 12, it's 20% at Rotten Tomatoes. And judging
that this looks 1/10 as interesting as Madagascar, this would be an
interesting time to pull out a special category to mention to the G.R.A.F.:
Worst Animated Feature.

Look no further than to Disney to have gone sinking down, just when
they've announced to re-establish their 2D animation department, AND
pick up the acquistion of Pixar in the process.

But this small helpful turnaround does not make a good move on already
bad movie buzz make.

C'mon, it's not THAT bad. If you want to know what the worst animated feature of all time was, it's The Tale of Tillie's Dragon which I saw in 1996. It's available on DVD, not that you would want to rent it it's so rank.

Trust me, Shark Tale wasn't nearly as bad asTillie Lawsuits were threatend over this, and top experts consulted over the rankness that was The Tale of Tillie's Dragon and my opinion was vindicated.

Of course that was ten years ago, but my opinion on the subject still stands.

Saw it, hated it. It stunk from start to finish. I was bored to tears and so were my kids. Madagascar was so much better.

Other than Dreamworks asking for thier movie back, The only enjoyable character in the whole movie was the nut job waterbeast voiced by William Shatner. I agree with Turkeyman, I think you will have a new catagory for the 2006 Razzies with The Wild as the Winner.

Beware of the Disney Direct to Video Move.

 

A bad omen when Disney skips theater release and goes direct to video.

Too Late for that, scatcatpdx...The movie already had a very lackluster release back in April of this year. However, since hardly anybody saw it domestically, it just feels like a Direct to Video movie!

Hopefully these things are simply the last pieces of the Eisner era being thrown out of the vault, and Iger's just biding his time (or if not him, Steve Jobs and John Lasseter) till they can bring something better into the world.
