Old Dec 12th, 2003, 04:59 PM        Garfield Trailer?
Eariler today, the trailer for the new Garfield movie was released and non-surprisingly, it was absolutely horrible. Probably the most offensive thing that came out of the trailer was the fact the role of Odie was being played by a real life dog that doesn't even look Odie at all and Garfield appears to be more hyperactive than being lazy.

However, the trailer was pulled online without notice. I don't know what happened to it or if it will be back up again.

More on this here http://www.cinecon.com/news.php?id=0312124.

What a horrible idea.

"In it, the article revealed that contrary to previous Internet rumors, both Garfield and Odie will be CGI characters, and not just Garfield. It was previously reported that Odie and Nermal would be real-live animals, with their voices animated like in the movie "Cats and Dogs."

Garfield and Odie "really look like real animals more than like the cartoon character you're used to seeing in the strip. With computer-generated imagery, these animals really look alive. These are cartoony, but they're more realistic. The cat has fur.""

Odie looked like a real dog in the teaser and if he was CGI why the fuck doesn't he actually look like Odie. I can only imagine how reatrded Nermal will look.

The cat has fur. I'm sure that will make up for the sheer shitness of this movie.

And Bill Murray's voice is nowhere near Lorenzo Music's. In fact, it doesn't sound much like Murray at all. In fact, AHHHHHH!!!

Jim Davis hasn't come out with anyhting good since the early 90's. For heaven's sake, all his sunday comics are 9 frames long with 8 of them looking exactly the same.

I kinda like the 3d garfield, but he looks out of place in the real world :/

Maybe if it was all 3d like a pixar thing it'd be good, or if they'd just made a really long 2d cartoon like the TV show it'd be good.

And Supafly is exactly right. I have no idea why there's no plot to the comics anymore. There was Arlene and Garfield's thing and Jon and Liz's thing, but now it's just a neverending story of this sort of crap:

[Huge Garfield banner]

[Frame 1 - Garfield lying on his stomach]

[Frame 2 - Jon walks in]

[Frame 3 - Jon says, "Garfield, you're lazy!"]

[Frame 4 - Jon walks out]

[Frame 5 - Garfield lying on his stomach]

[Frame 6 - Garfield lying on his stomach]

[Frame 7 - Garfield lying on his stomach]

[Frame 8 - Garfield lying on his stomach]

[Frame 9 - Garfield says, "No, I'm not."]

Who the fuck reads that and actually LAUGHS?

I would rather see an animated movie with nothing but flashbacks to the show than see this. EVER.

THAT is your biggest problem with what you've seen? That's like seeing holocaust footage and saying that Hitler's moustache looked off center.

That had to be one of the worst trailers ever. I've always hated Garfield though, since I don't think it's ever actually had a funny moment, but I am truly dissapointed in Bill Murray.

I think that that movie will beat out Cat in the Hat for biggest raping of a beloved childhood memory in my book. That definitely was NOT Odie, and for the love of fuck, Garfield's mouth is not supposed to MOVE!

He's actually doing a new comic strip based on Mr Potato-Head. I'm guessing Davis is really bored with Garfield and wants to kill it instead of gracefully ending it like Gary Larson or Bill Watterson. The key to ending a series is to end on a high note, after all.

That's because I've blocked the rest of it out of my mind. Post-tramatic amnesia. You think I want to remember that piece of bullshit?

Fuck, the only thing that made me stop from stealing a car and heading to Hollywood with a gun is that damn hot chick in that Virgin Mobile commericials. The blonde one, not that daffy bitch with that pubic hair undergarment.

I still say they should have Bill Murray walk around in a Garfield costume with a giant hole cut out for his face.

I really hate when people bitch at other people for selling out. Garfield had a good run, but now, between royalties and world wide syndication, Jim Davis must be sitting on large piles of money, because all his bank accounts are full. Can you really fucking blame him for being lazy?

No matter if you are a musician, writer, actor or whatever, EVERYone has thier price.

I don't care that Garfields sold out, it just sucks. It hasn't been good for a long time, and the problem is he wouldn't end the strip when it no longer had any room for originality.
