I’ve also always been a fan of these movies, the way they show Po learning about whatever it may be (about kung fu, where he came from, who his parents are etc…) is so well done The sad thing is that most people around me in real life don’t like them; it’s nice to see that you guys love them On a side note, Doug was talking about how well this movie balances comedy and philosophy, now I REALLY wanna see your reactions to Adventure time, not only does it do it, it does it A LOT in the episodes… Read more »

Zootopia’s Sloth trailer was brilliantly funny, IMHO.

Agree. Very surprised to hear the bros. Walker bash it. I get a trailer getting old or annoying after over exposure, but to say it was never funny at all? Just because you can see where a joke is going doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad one, if it’s executed perfectly. I loved it.

I did like the trailer(s) too, not sure why they hated it that much ?

Maybe there should be a NC review of Norm of the North. That would be fantastic.

Second movie better than the first? Hell no, I can’t see how it could be considered even close. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not terrible, but I think it had worse action, worse plot, worse everything really.

Are you not aware that using exclamation poitns like that make you come off as sarcastic? Even Doug’s thing at the beginning seemed sarcastic.

Glad they enjoyed the movie.

Interestingly, the movie was supposed to come out in March. but didn’t want to fight with Batman v Superman. Then it was moved to December 23rd, but they didn’t want to compete with Star Wars. And I don’t really blame them for making that decision.

I think #2 remains my favorite of the trio. Just so much tension and such a great villain. And that climax of po standing in the water doing the dewdrop trick with the cannonballs was just incredible. Although to be fair the margin between all three is so small. They are such fun and engaging movies. By far Dreamworks best work of all. This one felt a little too fast to me. Like too many things were left a little undeveloped. I would have liked to see a bit more with Po becoming the teacher. Maybe some deeper development of… Read more »

I’m pretty sure they put out the movie at this “deadzone” cause of Lunar/Chinese New Year.

Yeah, this is a series of movies that is way better than it has any right to be. A film about a fat panda learning Kung Fu in and of itself sounds like a stupid idea, and so does the idea of a Kung Fu movie starring Jack Black, and yet it works here. As someone who became a Brony after musing that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is way better than it has any right to be, I suppose I shouldn’t be so quick to judge a book by its cover anyways, but Kung Fu Panda is a… Read more »

A show was made, and it wasn’t very good to be frank with you. A lot of the characters are regressed to some odd place between the middle of the first movie and the end of it as to terms of character development, but they all seem to hate Po and they all feel Flanderized. It takes place somewhere after the first film but I would assume before the second. It isn’t awful, but has very few good qualities

There are episodes such as the hour-long “Enter the Dragon” special that indicate the show lasts past Kung Fu Panda 2, like when the villagers mention how Po defeated Lord Shen. But if you want to consider the show non-canon, take comfort in knowing that Kung Fu Panda 3 does contradict parts of the special.

I agree with you guys almost completely except that I am fine with the endings of the first two films and I really loved the villain of this one (Though you are right that Gary Oldman was better)

Also I’m glad I’m not the only one that really appreciates the use of Eastern religions in these film, though Rob has talked about that stuff in other things like Avatar. x3

The only thing i didn’t like about 3 is the ending didnt feel earned. He basically masters chi because the others believed in him really hard. 2 is easily my favorite with the villain, the team work, the back story were in top form in that one.

I haven’t seen any of the Kung Fu Panda movies in the theaters. The first one I saw in like a middle school movie night event. I remember that some of the kids in my middle school were confused and I kept having to explain it to them (I grew up in a bad neighborhood so that may be part of it). I can’t believe the franchise has been going on for that many years! The second I saw at home. I think that it was just as good as the first. The third I’ll do the same with. Also,… Read more »

Actually everybody in Brooklyn liked that Sloth Zootopia trailer at my theater whwere I live.

At the local UA Regal Cinema Multiplex theater everybody in the audience including sister except me laughed lol style during that trailer during when we watched Star Wars VII in December, I forced myself to laugh a little bit, but that scene with the Fox taking the Police She-Bunny to the Sloth Bank was funny to most people.

I actually think 3 was the weakest of the trilogy but by no means a horrible movie. The biggest criticism I have is that it started out kinda like the first one, where he was getting mocked by people for inexperience and it just didn’t fit at all. And once again the strength to defeat the villain came a little too easy and I would have liked if they tied it in more with what he learned at the end of the second one. I really liked the villain in this movie. The music cues when he was approaching the… Read more »

Yep, just saw it. I personally didn’t find it to be as good as the first two, but still nice. I still find the original to be the best. I really think it had the best villain. I was so eager to see how the two dads would interact. It did not disappoint!

I’m not sure how to feel about this movie. It’s by all means great and yet I feel like I enjoyed it the least of the three. I guess my biggest issue is that it focuses on the least interesting parts despite introducing a lot of incredible ideas. The leading issue of Po finding who he is… That was movie #2. He’s learned the lesson already. Yes, when his real father comes back the issue has the right to come back, but it shouldn’t be about Po’s identity. He has learned who he is and, comfortable with that knowledge of… Read more »

I definitely think 2 was the best, but 3 was pretty good. 3 really underused the other characters. I would really like to see more with the furious 5. I really like monkey, crane, mantis, and viper. I do not like tigress and I don’t care for all the new side characters we’re giving more importance to.
