    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    This would be one big thing I consider an improvement to the stage show. The original version of "America" just sucks - the movie made it exactly as it should have been in the first place. Now if they would also switch "Cool" and "Gee, Officer Krupke" to where they are in the movie, then we...

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    If the first Maleficent would have been written better and given the proper backstory with everyone in character, it could have done well as a PG-13 movie.

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    Descendants sucks. And Maleficent was horribly miscast in that film.

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    No. Disney already screwed up Maleficent super badly in what was supposed to be her own movie. I'm not going to watch them do it even more. At this point, Disney is just kicking this character while she's down.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    It's a light moment considering how upbeat the melody and Maria's mood is during the scene. To each their own. But if I had it my way, both the stage version and the movie would have this number as it is in the movie, for the reasons I listed.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    I will admit I don't feel as strongly about this as I do Cool and Gee, Officer Krupke because you really can't blame Maria for not knowing the truth yet. If Cool and Gee, Officer Krupke were in their proper places but I Feel Pretty was still after the rumble, it wouldn't bother me as much. But...

    Toy Story, The Incredibles and Up voted Pixar's best movies

    I would rank A Bug's Life higher. Much higher.

    I stand corrected.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    That's interesting, because that part of my assessment is what I feel strongest about. With "Cool" taking place before the war council, I can at least forgive it because it's not completely illogical - the worst I can say about it is that the song's atmosphere is just way too extreme for this...

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    The first attempt to make a Maleficent movie was more than bad enough. Disney can take this "sequel" and shove it.

    Cruella (2021)

    I bet I can guess the plot: The story centers around the wonderful DeVille family: a veterinarian father, an animal rights activist mother, three daughters and one son. The entire family loves animals but none more so than middle daughter, Cruella. Cruella was born with a terrible birth defect...

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    To me, it's just called being an actor.

    I figured out the problem. I didn't make sure there was a bracket at the beginning of the first /quote. LOL!

    Thank you, Malcolm.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    I wouldn't say that West Side Story is a remake of Romeo and Juliet - it's an adaptation. There's a difference between the two terms. Just like every movie version of Romeo and Juliet is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. And the adaptation was so effective that...

    Thank you! I will check all that out when I get the chance.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    When you said "Maybe to you, but thankfully not the case with the majority of classic movie fans", that to me was an implication my opinion was wrong. But now I know you didn't mean it that way. Carry on.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    So far, I've been a member on this site for 3 hours, and I've been getting error messages saying that my posts might be spam or have inappropriate content, which I know is not the case with either. So I'm already have difficulty just fixing my posts. And like I said, the /quote at the end of...

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    Okay, well guess what? I'm not going to keep stating 'it's just my opinion' everytime I say my opinion. I will just state it and anyone can take it however they want. That's really how it should be. I'm not going to have you tell me I'm wrong just because the majority 'thankfully' disagrees with...

    Isn't that a given on these forums? And thanks.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    You know, your message could have done without that part. As if my opinion is wrong just because the "majority" thinks otherwise. I really don't care either way. My opinion is my own and I'm not going to change it just because other people don't like it. By the way, does anyone know why this...

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    Thank you, Jake! I actually did enjoy 2019 Aladdin more than I thought I would when I went and saw it. I thought it actually had some pretty unique takes on the material and it was actually pretty fun to watch. But it was still pretty unnecessary, and it didn't need to be made. Like I said, I...

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    You know...I hear a lot of people say that about Beymer, and I never hear any examples on why it was a bad performance. All I see are people just bashing him every chance they get, and it's gotten out of hand. I thought he was a great Tony and he inspired me to want to play the role myself. I...

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    I know that the remake is definitely happening and nothing can be done to stop it, but I want to put in my two cents anyway. I don't have much against remakes in general - I think for the most part, they are unnecessary and cheapen the experience of the movie that got it right the first time...
