Tarzan - New 3D Animated Film

Recommended Posts

So yeah there's a new Tarzan film by Constantin Film. Who are they? Well they're known for making Neverending Story, one of the best family films ever, and Downfall, the Hitler Film that no one can take seriously at this point cause of the inumerous parodies of it(Great film though).

 

Nowadays however, they're known for distributing the Resident Evil live action movies in Germany. Well, apparently that wasn't enough of a downfall(Ah see what i did there?) for them, as now they're making a 3D animated film:

 

 

 

 

So.....Tarzan + The plot of Avatar......And wow does the voice acting suck.

 

I mean, there hasn't been a really fantastic film adaptation of the original books yet, but the Disney movie was actually a pretty good movie when you look at it on its own rights....This.....this looks amazingly awful.

 

Thoughts?

Ahahaha, good lord.

That looked so fanfuckingtastically awful, the animation looks sub par and the fact they're adding sci-fi elements into a story like Tarzan is laughable on it's own. Something really tells me this'll be somewhere on the top of the "so bad it's good" pantheon of films, I'll stick with the Disney version, as everyone else has said. That's probably the best adaptation of the book out there.

I read the responses above before watching the trailer and thought "Oh, it couldn't be that bad."

 

And initially, I thought I was right.  I mean, nevermind that the CGI is worse than most early GameCube games, it just looked like a short, basic retelling of the classic Tarzan story.  Nothing special in the slightest.  Then some stuff about a meteor and some kind of nuclear war and... I just stopped being able to follow it there.  Yeah, not liking the looks of this to say the least.

I saw the trailer for this before Lego. Yeah... no thanks. The one in the cinema was a little different, or maybe I wasn't paying attention, because it just started out like normal Tarzan and then there was a city and a meteor and just... it felt totally out of nowhere. This one at least set the story up a little better. But it's still hideous.

How was something this awful looking allowed in theaters. Seriously that CG was fucking atrocious. But otherwise I was kinda just like "oh okay it seems to be the typical Tarzan story we all know" until the movie just cuts to a metropolitan area and shows evil business hand and just…UGHHGHGHG.

 

Part of the feel of Tarzan is the general absence of modern day stuff, you get some glimpses here and there but otherwise it feels like another world onto itself. When you put in big bad army guys and helipctoers and and and and fucking aliens……….just fuck man.

That loincloth ain't doin' much for the guy.

 

Welp, yeah this looks ridiculous. As soon as it mentioned "extraterrestrial", I just quit. This'll be one of those movies that'll go down alongside Troll in Central Park and whatnot. But it did inspire a new avatar for me.

I'm going with everyone else and sticking to the Disney version. Am I the only one who noticed that the anatomy for the characters seemed really off? I know that not everything is gonna be anatomically correct and I'm not expecting it to be, but I expect it to be because of artistic style, not out of cheapness.

I saw this trailer whilst waiting for the Lego Movie to start. The trailer finished, and I literally said 'WHAT??' out loud.

 

The whole premise of this seems utterly ridiculous. Firstly, Tarzan wasn't released by Disney absolutely ages ago, so people are bound to draw comparisons with it, and it's fairly clear looking at this that Disney will have told the better story. Secondly, the whole Sci-Fi element... why on earth is it necessary to have something like this? Is it some vain attempt of trying to distance the film from Disney's telling of the story?

 

Finally... They somehow made Tarzan look like George of the Jungle... Yep, this guy:

I won't be watching this unless the reviews turn out to be overwhelmingly positive.

You know, I was about to post something similar, but you pretty much described my thoughts right there. If I watch this, it'll be because familiy members forced me to, not because I want to.
