Weekly Ketchup: SNL Alumnus to Write Looney Toons Reboot

Summary

This week's Ketchup is full of news stories concerning TV show adaptations like Looney Tunes (technically a TV show), Baywatch, and yes, Manimal. There's also a new movie for director Roman Polanski, new roles for Casey Affleck and Pierce Brosnan, and an unnecessary remake of The Flamingo Kid. Back to Article

Its like Basic Programming -- if Saturday Night Live Sucks because of the writing THAN Looney Tunes will SUCK because of the writing . . ."IF" and "THAN"

That's not the logic I was using. Try this start...

IF the writer of Looney Tunes is a potty-mouthed Sarah Silverman hipster type, THEN...

Not that there's anything *wrong* with potty-mouthed Sarah Silverman types. They just might not be the best writers for LOONEY TUNES.

I really don't like that racist pot mouthing cunt who calls herself a comedien Sarah Silverman who's not even close to Don Rickles, one of her main problems is that she's one of few females who always have to cover up her hairy armpits!

They're both equally bad but Don Rickles is a veteran comic, and Silverman is just plain disgusting who can either be a man or a woman!

The Looney Tunes would have been the only good news this week if they weren't being done CGI. Making those comedic gods CGI rather than 2D is as fucking stupid as when Disney changed The Snow Queen from 2D to CGI. Nothing interesting this week, at all.

Much dumber in my opinion. At least Disney proved with Tangled that they can handle a CGI fairy tale just as well a traditional one. When has turning classic cartoon figures into CGI ever turned out good? The Smurfs? Scooby Doo?

Yes, & to this day, Tangled is still the only good CGI movie Disney has made to date.

Fritz Freleng 1905 - 1995; Mel Blanc 1908 - 1989; Chuck Jones 1912 - 2002 -- The Masters of Looney Tunes are long dead. and the HORRIBLE Space Jam was indicative of Loony Tunes' passing; with the writing of this new Loony Tunes, we may actually see/hear = perceive Bugs Bunny use the F*Bomb as it was.

Kinky Polanski . . .

since everyone is pushing the envelope, why not remake Lolita again with an actual twelve-year-old girl in the role; they did it with Thirteen starring Holly Hunter.

----
the rest of the stories are bad.

Stanley Kubrick's Lolita makes every other Lolita irrelevant; the story doesn't need to be told again and making the girl younger won't change the quality of the film or make it any less irrelevant.

I'm all in for a Polanski version of "Venus in Fur". I'm not familiar with the play, but hopefully it doesn't stray too far from the book.

That's about it. It's hard to believe there's no one else qualified to write a Looney Toons script. If you're going SNL, isn't Robert Smigel available?

Super is so bad it makes a less than mediocre movie like The Avengers look like Citizen Kane in comparison. Although I'm sure GotG will get a free pass from the critics like all of the other Marvel Studios flicks. I mean if even the likes of Thor can get a fresh meta, then something is up... $
