I hope this will be the first unambiguously good movie Don Bluth has directed since the Secret of Nimh! ...Nope.
Atlantis The Lost Empire:
I love Mike Mignola art, Michael J Fox, and Disney animation, but this movie is basically Stargate with more uneven pacing.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE, CAPTAIN. ALSO YOU ARE A GOOD VILLAIN SILVER. AND THIS MOVIE IS SURPRISINGLY RELEVANT TO MY CURRENT LIFE AND IT IS ALSO GORGEOUS. WHY DID THIS NOT MAKE ALL THE MONIES EVER.<p>Treasure planet is actually pretty great until the robot comes in. Once he's off screen it's fun again haha. <br/><br/>That robot tho, man he almost completely derails the movie/mood completely.</p>
Moon flowers, yes? My grandmother loved these, we have them planted in our garden :)
looks like something out of Coraline :o
I have a story. We used to have a bunch of these outside our house. They really do open up like this as soon as it gets dark and they release this wonderful smell. My family used to go outside every day and watch them open. But what they don’t tell you is that bugs love them. When it gets hot out they’ll crawl inside them to keep cool. So one day little me, I was probably like 13, put my nose right down by it so I could smell it as it was opening… and a huge ass jumping spider launched itself at my face. Don’t trust the moon flowers. They’re full of horror.
That’s true in more ways than one. Moonflowers are actually datura - angel’s trumpets. They’re very toxic, and have been use for hundreds of years as a poison and hallucinogen.
