Trailer here

I... can't decide if this looks awesome or stupid.

I'm leaning towards awesome, though. Swashbuckling Russian Santa!

Badass Russian Santa has his naughty list tattooed on one arm, and the nice list on the other.

AWESOME.

And Liege, you're words really have had an effect on me. It made me relise I've shouldn't care about what others think of me, I should only care about what I think of myself.

Liege is a small dude with a lot of wisdom.

Well one of those descriptive words is accurate I suppose!

Who's the bad guy meant to be?

Part of me would be completely on board for a movie like this, but on the other hand, Dreamworks. On the other other hand, How to Train Your Dragon.

Apparently the bad guy is called Pitch (as in pitch black), the Boogeyman. It seems so obvious.

I'm torn. On the one hand, badass Russian Santa.

On the other hand, this is exactly the kind of thing that DeviantArt eats up.

I... I don't know what to think. I feel guilty kinda wanting to see it. But still.... Santa with Swords?

I am confused.

Well to be fair, Dreamworks has seriously stepped up their game in the past few years. The two Kung Fu Panda's and How to Train Your Dragon were fantastic films - films actually able to run alongside Disney/Pixar fair and, while maybe not being quite as masterful, certainly were around the same level. And even their lesser works - Megamind, Monsters Vs Aliens, were at the very least entertaining and fun parodies. After that many wins in a row, it's hard to just dismiss Dreamworks as 'crap' anymore.

This right here is where my sense of wonderment failed...



Dreamworks has to get over their addiction to names...ESPECIALLY flavor of the month's like Chris Pine...because he's shown any level of acting that makes him the choice for a voice role? Anything distinctive about him? Anything that makes him better than a professional voice actor?

It makes sense in some cases....Jay Brushell in Dragon..1) he's got a pretty distinctive voice pattern and manner, and 2) that's a role he'd play in a live action version...same with Jack Black in panda.

Yeah, Dreamworks feels the need to make a big deal out of the names in their movies.


Pixar does not. In fact, most of the time they just use people from around the office....and John Ratzenberger.

I'm digging this star power or not. It sounded a bit ridiculous but they kinda flipped my expectations (remember The Santa Clause 3) after the trailer.

Yes, because Tim Allen (back in the 90's), Tom Hanks, Ed Asner, Owen Wilson, and Larry the Cable Guy are "guys that happened to be in the office."

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

How many of those guys were HUGE films stars back then?

Tom Hanks.

And even then they were hardly promoted (or mentioned) in most promos.

Pixar casts actors who'd you'd cast if the film was a live action version.

Ed Asner played an animated Ed Asner. You could easily see Cars remade live with Owen Wilson and Larry.

Tom & Tim aren't as personally connect to their rolls as in others, but Dave Foley and Julia Louis Dryfus? Monsters Inc works just as well if you point a camera at John Goodman and Billy Crystal.

What did America Ferrara, Jonah Hill or Kristin Wiig bring of themselves to Dragon?

Or generic voiced Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogan, or Rain Wilson to Monsters vs Alien. Colbert played an exagerated version of his own character, and at least Hugh Laurie went nuts with the role to justify his casting.


(and yes, Resse Withspoon would actually play that part in a live action..as would Amy Adams, Rachel McAdams, and Jennifer Aniston. IE. Generic leading lady, so you might as well have cast Tara Strong, and save some money to be used for the script (and get a better voice performance))

Colbert's actually done a lot of voice work and he's pretty damn good.

Yeah Colbert has a great classic cartoon voice. Tek Janson FTW.
