Finally saw the Peanuts movie, and I found it was just 100% perfect. Can we have a Peanuts thread?
What did all of you think about it?
Completely agree, OP. I went into it almost out of obligation, just because I loved Peanuts when I was a kid and felt like I owed this movie a try. I walked out absolutely loving it and remembering WHY Peanuts was so awesome. They did a wonderful job of capturing the spirit of the characters while still making it fresh and fun.
>Sequel made and released in a few years.
>Picks up immediately after the first film ends.
>The world collapses around Charlie Brown the second the film starts.
>Happiness is only fleeting.
That seems about right really.
I'm actually kinda glad it was. That ending gave the franchise a sense of closure that the strip's last year never quite had. And seeing as Fox only got a deal to make one movie and the Schulz estate's protectiveness, it's unlikely to get a sequel any time soon.
That reminds me, anyone kind of pissed with the lack of Peanuts merch to promote the movie?
Fuck, I went into Wal-Mart and they had like ONE Peanuts book (a Christmas storybook) in stock. None of the Fantagraphic hardcovers or any new them centric reprints in stock
Have fun waiting 8 years at the fastest...
Target's got most of the Peanuts Movie merch. Toyline of plush and figures. Seen a couple more books. Paramount's put all four of the original movies on DVD.
IT WAS FUCKING WHOLESOME SHIT, I HATE THIS UNFUNNY CONSERVATIVE FILTH FRANCHISE, AND ANYONE WHO FINDS ENJOYMENT FROM THIS CULTURAL SHIT SHOULD BE BOILED ALIVE IN ACID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
McDonalds has the Snoopy Black Burger which is a thing apparently
only in Thailandand it even has its own animated ad.
I thought the NAACP stood for "Niggas Angry About Caucasian People"
Perhaps Major League Baseball should replace all their staff members with retards
Then players like Joshua Hamilton wouldn't feel so alone
At least they didn't actually pair Chuck and the Little Red Haired Girl up for real. Her being away but being his pen pal seems like a good compromise while still keeping her out of his daily life.
Every character was perfect. Peppermint Patty and Marcie were standouts, but IMO every character had at least one great moment.
>"A little dirt never hurt anyone"
I thought the Snoopy parts dragged on a bit but I guess you needing something to break up the Charlie Brown story. I'm not really sure what you could replace Snoopy's story with that would have made the film better.
Movie was awesome, I loved it. Didn't like Peppermint Patty's voice, and she wasn't in it enough, but otherwise I couldn't be happier. The Red Baron scenes were beautiful.
Just went out and bought Bon Voyage Charlie Brown and Race for Your Life Charlie Brown and watched them over Thanksgiving break. Capitalism is alive and well, folks.
I loved the movie. It felt nice giving Charlie Brown traits other than "oh the world hates me, im depressed, blah blah blah" I liked it when he confessed that
the test wasn't hisand helping Sally with the talent show. The cherry on the top was the little red head girl telling him what a good person he was. It really gave me hope that all good things come to those who stay true. 8.5/10 would watch again
I really really liked it. The only thing I didn't like was the 2nd pop song they used. The first one honestly fit more than I thought it would but that second one...It just kinda stuck out like a sore thumb. I did think the ending was a little too happy but let's be honest, several Charlie brown specials/movies have had happy endings. It's not as if this is breaking the mold in that regard.
Movie was charming as fuck. I missed the classic jazz music, though. Linus & Lucy is the only jazz track they used. The Red Baron scenes started to drag a little bit too. Otherwise it played like a Greatest Hits of Peanuts. Great choices for the voice casting.
Why do people think Patty's a lesbian when it's obvious she wants Charlie Brown's blockhead?
I'm up for doing some Peanuts art if anyone has a request.
Because most people didn't really pay attention. And most others just follow the stereotypes. Pep Patty wore pants and sandals and did sports. Marcy called her sir so obviously Patty must be a lesbian. Nevermind that she's the most boy crazy girl in the series. That would take you to look at her character instead of looking at her objectively.
Because Marcie's a little weirdo that follows her around and calls her "Sir."
>mfw a little strawberry blonde tomboy used to chase me around when I was a kid
Good news is the movie has made over 116 million worldwide sense release.
A friend of mine pointed out that he liked that they didn't try to "update" Peanuts by having the kids use cell phones and computers. I honestly didn't think about it until he said it. Imagine Charlie Brown stalking the Little Red-Haired Girl on Facebook.
Millennial Charlie Brown movie would probably be called "Why Don't You Kill Yourself, Charlie Brown?"
The football is just a metaphor for trying to be good at something but no matter how hard he tries he may never achieve that goal. But oh well, who gives a fuck. He at least knows the little red head girl likes him. In the end, "love" is all that matters, not something petty like never winning a ballgame.
Like being stuck in a dead end job, but you always have that love one waiting for you at night.
>A friend of mine pointed out that he liked that they didn't try to "update" Peanuts by having the kids use cell phones and computers. I honestly didn't think about it until he said it.
I noticed that. They wrote their book reports with pen and paper and used corded phones. It's subtle but it gives the whole movie a more timeless quality.
...which makes the licensed music even more conspicuous. Seriously, why?
>Marcy making a trio of perfect omelettes while wearing Charlie's shirt and a contented smile
>Patty and Chuck kissing on the couch a few feet behind her
well at least he got to kick it once
neat, although I think he wanted something happier and less strife filled
>tfw Peanuts would be better if Lucy was on the back of a milk carton
It may not be your Peanuts but it's definitely you're grandpa's Peanuts.
I disturbed by the lack of Rerun. But other than that, it was hunky dory/
He's like Sally and Linus offspring.
>Confessions of a Fussbudget
She already coined the "Diary of a Fussbudget"
The responsibilities of a Fussbudget are endless and thankless.
>Did you notice that they set up a reason to explain who the Red Baron was
Come on, do you think even back in the 60s-70s, that the average 10 year old would know that and not wonder whodafug is this Red Baron nigger that Snoopy is chasing after?
Do you think all the cartoons would be different if Snoopy had internal dialog?
Of all the reruns in the world, Rerun was the rerunniest.
>Cold mother fucker Charlie
That's best Charlie.
You got me Shultz.
Why did you have to leave so soon?
Peppermint Patty or Patty Patty? Peppermint Patty is a qt because she was more fleshed out than most characters since Schultz made her to be the star of her own strip, but when he realized he didn't have time for two strips just threw her in with the Peanuts gang.
For Patty Patty it's because she likes it filthy.
this is their last appearance one week before Schulz died
I guessed as much, hit the essential beats and get some closure.
Also it was good that Snoopy didn't steal the show like he has to the merch, it started and ended with Charlie Brown. I kind of dread sequels.
>We're having fun, aren't we Chuck?
>It's still your ball..
>What are you gonna do, Chuck?
>You gonna run or pass?
I don't need this shit right now.
>those shaky-ass lines
Fuck, I've seen old people take 5 minutes or more just making out a check.
Imagining some little old man trying to painstakingly draw a comic like that just makes the tears start.
I wouldn't say perfect. The ending zoomed ahead too fast and made the sudden moral reveal at the end just a random dump. Shoulda cut some of the time outta that way overly long red baron fight at the end and maybe cut the chase down a bit for a bit more time on Charlie after the reveal that he didn't score that perfect score.
Just a bit of nitpicking but the ending is the only regard I didn't really like the movie in. Snoopy takes up 90% of the ending after the test reveal and it bugs me as a waste. Still a great movie and passed my expectations.
>He was suffering from tremors due to strokes caused by the advanced cancer.
Don't do this to me anon.
The last time I felt this sad was when I read the author blurb at the end of The Little Prince.
This thread got sad, let's cheer it up.
Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH magician Snoopy? Let alone defeat him. And I’m not talking about Easter Beagle Snoopy. I’m not talking about Flashbeagle Snoopy either. Hell, I’m not even talking about World War I flying ace Snoopy.
I have done exactly this before. Living three states away from your dog most of the year makes everything harder, guys.
Fucking hell. This got to me. I was, and still am, never able to relate to >>77796810 as I'm a confident guy; hell, I outright flirt with a number of my classmates from time to time.
However, Marcie right here definitely struck close to home with me. I definitely can do it, as I even made the NHS. Still, mess up even one time they start getting antsy with you and believe you don't take your stuff seriously.
It's a matter of perspective.
If you look at a single day in a person's life, it can be funny. If you look at the totality of their life, it is depressing. If you look at the lives and deaths of several people, they can be funny or depressing.
