Everyone's Hero Trailer - Which Everyone Here Hates!

Postby tfactor on Sun Aug 20, 2006 4:34 pm

trailer here

I just saw this and thought it looked really cute and I noticed Mandy Patinkin's voice as the father (which is cool because he's just feaking awesome) and then I noticed Rob Reiner's voice as well and I realized this is probably the first thing they've done together since The Princess Bride.

But as spectacular as that is .. wait that's not all!

On IMDB the directors listed are:
Colin Brady - Animation supervisor for; Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate events, Hulk, E. T., and he also worked on Toy Story 1&2 and A Bug's Life. This guy hasn't done anything I haven't liked so thats a bonus.

Dan St. Pierre - who also has worked on some really good movies like; The Lion King, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid etc
&
Christopher Reeve - yes THE christopher reeve, it doesn't say what his involvement was (other than listing him as one of the directors) but his wife Dana Reeve is also in this movie, she plays the voice of Emily, and I realized this was perhaps one of the last movies these two extraorginary people worked on together ... think about that for a minute.

Plus the movie also stars Whoopi Goldberg, Ed Helms, Richard Kind and William H Macy! All amazingly talented or extremely funny actors!

I'm seriously impressed and I can't wait to see this!

That's a disturbingly attractive bat...

I'm waiting for a movie about an enchanted hockey puck myself. ;)

I still do not undestand why the bat and ball have eyes and talk...

And it looks so bland. Did not get excited at all.

Yeh - like the court order allows you to wield a bat. It said "Any weapon....".

All you DZAS are on double secret probation - effective immediately!!

Yeah lets watch a match between those two teams.

I wonder how many balls will be switched for collision explosives or a rocket launcher bat.

This looks like a whole lot of dull all in one place.

Has that 'phoned-in' feel that made Chicken Little so disappointing.

And honestly, as long as we're going to be sticking Hollywood stars in voice-roles over the Billy Wests of the world, we the public can certainly judge based on 'who's the big names' - and Whoopi Goldberg stopped being relevant over fifteen years ago...and it's not Reiner as director, it's Reiner as creepy anamorphic baseball. Pass. Now, if that was Denis Leary, I'm there.

Huzzah! The Oilers will be pleased with me. Of course, you know Tanguay was traded to Calgary and an Oiler fan hates Calgary, so you're going to have to start hating Tanguay.

The people making this movie should go and darken up the villain's skin tone in this movie. Then re-render the whole thing and make him a Cuban. This movie would make tons if they did that. Americans would go in droves to watch this movie and see that evil greedy Cuban get his. They can rename him to Alfred Diego Escobar DeSalvador and further infuriate the American public at having to try and retain such a complicated name into memory.

LS, you know your Avalanche lust still dwells within you. Admit it! Surrender to the DARK SIDE!

Lorne Michaels did a short film back in the early '70s about the year of the great puck famine, when the hockey puck crop failed. Wish I could see that.

Based on the trailer, this movie looks pretty sad. What do you suppose The Babe did with that talking bat in between trips to the whorehouse?

Oh...if only that bat could talk....

What?!? It does! AND IT SOUNDS LIKE WHOOPI GOLDBERG?!?

Y'know Dennis, I think you just hit upon a fantastically better idea for an animated film...and SOMEBODY has to be the first to take what Pixar hath wrought into the R-rated 'adult themes, sexual situations, several scenes of intense graphic violence, one disturbing scene at an all-you-can-eat Vegas buffet' territory.

RIDICULOUS. As in, "able to be held up to RIDICULE." Makes The Ant Bully look like Akira.

Now we know the truth. Dana Reeve died from extreme nausea, due to her involvement with Everyone's Hero.

Laughably bad. This is the kind of dogshit that sets children's films back by about thirty years. I can't wait to see it flop on a grand scale.

I can't wait to see the looks on my friends' faces when they see this trailer. I have this one friend who does a dynamite "what-the-fuck-that-is-so-stupid" face. He doesn't even have to say a word to convey the violent disgust and outright revulsion in the pit of his soul. He will surely uncork that face for a steamy turd like Everyone's Hero.

:o :shock: :o :shock: :o :shock:
alright fine, baseball is not the patriotic pass time for all countries, and clearly some of you down right hate the sport, I get it, and yes the movie has a talking baseball and baseball bat, but fuck me freddy did you guys really need to be so damn cruel about not having any interest in the movie? Jesus Christ I haven't seen everyone attack one person or idea as a group like that in ... well really only about 3 days but that's not the point, what the hell is up with this place and the brutality toward your fellow zoners? Should harry just go ahead and rename the zone "the evil fucking bastard center of self pity and despair!" with a sign up front when you enter that says "enter at own risk, probability of; being insulted, made fun of, called names, laughed at, kicked in the crouch, ignored, lit on fire, slapped by random dinks, rubbed the wrong way, rubbed the inappropriate way, given a wedgy, or kicked in the head with an iron boot are all HIGHLY LIKELY!!!"

So you know what fine, I admit that I probably wanted the film to be very cool because of those involved and what I personally associated in my mind with everyone in this movie, and I will accept that your opinions are yours to have and I just have to be cool with that, so all I have to say to everyone who's posted on this thread so far and bashed that which I tried to share and BTW I say this and do so with a very light heart, a smile on my face and seriously (no seriously) not trying to genuinely insult or be cruel to any of you but:








































fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, and fuck you, I'm out!

I just did not get why the items talk. That was never explained in the trailer. Or I missed it. I feel it would make more sense if they said the kid had an overactive imagination or something. Randomly talking inanimate objects just do not make good sense to me. He showed surprise in the trailer that they did talk but they never stated why they talk. That is my beef with the movie.

I like baseball and I would watch a good baseball animated movie. I am just afraid that this movie is not it...

Hopefully we will get a better trailer that will explain this better and I will be more interested.

I love how Raven Symone's name is thrown in there with all the other actors even though her character isn't featured at all in the main storyline--and likely not much in the movie itself. Smells like a negotiated contract to me.

The movie does look a bit underwhelming, but I bet it was pretty cheap to produce. It'll make its money back in theaters and on DVD, and at the end of the day, that's what a thing like this is about.

And mark me down for hating that the trailer tells us the ENTIRE story.

Ok then. So is it just baseball related items that talk or does everything have a voice?

I understand that strange things talk in cartoons, but most have reasons for it.

Beauty and the Beast they all talk cause they are really humans and they are cursed.

Pagemaster the books talk cause its a dream and he is the freaking pagemaster (Oh and spoilers)

I am just saying it just does not connect with me as to why they talk.

Having just watched the trailer, here is my first impression:


Pure kiddie stuff. There doesn't seem to be anything in this movie that would appeal to the kid in me, let alone the 30-something in me. And they touted all these big names, but there wasn't one witty line between them.

I appreciate your enthusiasm, tfactor, but I simply don't see where it's warranted.

Should Grande Rojo just go ahead and rename the zone "the evil fucking bastard center of self pity and despair!" with a sign up front when you enter that says "enter at own risk, probability of; being insulted, made fun of, called names, laughed at, kicked in the crouch, ignored, lit on fire, slapped by random dinks, rubbed the wrong way, rubbed the inappropriate way, given a wedgy, or kicked in the head with an iron boot are all HIGHLY LIKELY!!!"

So you know what fine, I admit that I probably wanted the film to be very cool because of those involved and what I personally associated in my mind with everyone in this movie, and I will accept that your opinions are yours to have and I just have to be cool with that, so all I have to say to everyone who's posted on this thread so far and bashed that which I tried to share and BTW I say this and do so with a very light heart, a smile on my face and seriously (no seriously) not trying to genuinely insult or be cruel to any of you but:

fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, and fuck you, I'm out!

:D


Whoa, whoa, I didn't see any posts that attacked you, bro! You didn't have anything to do with the making of Everyone's Hero. We were shooting at the message, not the messenger.

Are we supposed to believe that Babe Ruth's bat -- a strong black woman -- broke MLB's color barrier years before Jackie Robinson? That is not likely.

In the film's defense, at least they weren't using Ty Cobb's bat.

Then again, the film would've been much funnier if they had.

I know you guys weren't bashing me, come on now, don't make me out to be someone looking for pity or something. tbh I did kind of over reacted a bit upon looking into this movie, but again I took no serious offense to anything anyone said. I just thought it would be funny to quote Scarface from Half Baked in response to you guys not liking the trailer.

Please don't think I was being serious, it was just me trying unsuccessfully (yet again) to be funny.

So would this be a bad time to point out that I liked Hudson Hawk? :roll:

It honestly wasn't that bad until I realized that Rob Reiner and Whoopi Goldberg were voicing the ball and bat. There might not be another two people in Hollywood that I hate more than those two. So, while I think many of you were a little too harsh, it does look very kid-oriented and not that exciting, and the voice cast is pretty shitty. Still, I could see this sort of working as a 75 minute flick, but any longer would be painful.

The 'Wood is cranking out animated films now without regard to whether or not they suck bilge spittle.
Chicken Little?
Crap.
Monster House?
Nice background animation. Otherwise, crap.
Barnyard?
Male cows do not have udders. I'm fuzzy on some things, but last time Havoc was down there he didn't mention any udders.
oops.

Its too bad we have to wait until next summer for Brad Bird to remind these goddam putzs how its done.

Get fuzzy on this...

And the reason that I never mentioned any udders, is because I was always taught to not talk with my mouth full...
