But you can hardly swallow your fears and pain
Yes, I decided to make a follow-up to the Shopping Cart strip. I am a sick, sick person.
You might have heard that Disney, in their infinite corporate wisdom, has decided to stop making new traditionally animated movies. But if you'd like to be reminded of why this is not necessarily a bad thing, why not rent Stitch: The Movie. This 55-minute commercial for the inevitable Lilo and Stitch television series manages to mutate the franchise into a Pokemon knockoff.
In the last few years, while Disney has managed to 'produce' fantastic movies from Pixar and, more recently, Studio Ghibli, their own in-house productions have been in a total mess -- not because they were in 2D, but because they sucked. It was a complete miracle that a great movie like Lilo and Stitch made it out of the same home that produced the utter garbage that was Atlantis and Treasure Planet. Now, they've managed to ruin the only good thing they had going for them.
Disney President Michael Eisner says that American 2D-animation is dead. Well, Mike, you're right. And you killed it yourselves, your stupid bastards.
