Wow, I really wasn't expecting the description to be an actual quote.

god I lost zillions of quarters in this and dragons lair back in the day

KnowFuture - 2008-12-07

Lost maybe 2 dollars to this game, total lifetime...at age 8 I figured out the formula for this and Dragon's Lair:

1. insert coin
2. move joystick around and watch awesome animation,
which is completely unaffected by your manipulation
of said joystick
3. die
4. insert another coin

Some of the most beautiful animation ever... Why the fuck isn't Don Bluth ruling over the film world??

B. Weed - 2008-12-06

His taste in scripts is lacking?

Ask Rat Porn lady!

Because he hates children and wants to fill their minds with nightmares

Also Don Bluth's humans move around like big weightless floppy bags of douche. And they have stupid hair

He had pretty bad experiences with Titan AE and working with Fox who became increasingly hostile to his control of the Fox Animation Studios because he wanted to spend money on untested, original stuff rather than more sequels/continuations of other shit, so they just shut him down. I personally thought the movie was pretty damn good (despite the fucking Lit songs). Last I heard, he is currently trying to get things together to produce a full-length Dragon's Lair movie based on the original game.

To be fair, as great as I think Bluth's work was for Disney and then in the years after, let's be honest that a lot of stuff from the late 80s onward was pretty terrible. I mean, A Troll In Central Park? Thumbellina? Rock A Doodle?

This does have surprisingly good animation. It has 80s written all over it.

Caminante Nocturno - 2008-12-06

Because anime is better.

Jeff Fries - 2008-12-06

Rock-a-Doodle is great, I don't now what the hell you are saying

Bluth's biggest problem was trying to take the Disney formula with him to other studios, at the same time that Disney was about to have its second golden age.

So almost all of his movies (excepting The Secret of NIMH) ended up looking like Disney knockoffs. Pixar eventually taught the industry that the key to beating Disney wasn't to beat them at their own game, but to change the game entirely.

Jeff Fries - 2008-12-30

That is a meaningless statement. The problem with Bluth's movies is that they're too dark. He knows that the key to Disney's success with children is to bring in some of the upsetting facts of life, the problem is he doesn't know when to say when, so his movies end up being like little horror movies for kids. I remember it fondly but has there ever been a more downbeat children's film than The Secret of NIMH?

Rock a Doodle.

Spastic Avenger - 2008-12-06

Chewy lip-synch? hypertrophic timings? It's Bluth!

Last time I saw this game was before I discovered the existence of infantilism as a fetish. Thanks, Internet, for ruining yet another thing by making me realize that people are probably spanking it to this.
