The Kung-Fu Panda Discussion Thread
« on: September 20, 2017, 09:23:05 pm »
Continued from Anatomy of a Disaster.

My little brother and I rewatched Kung Fu Panda just a few days ago.

It's actually kinda astounding how that movie managed to have such a more smartly written "wise old sage" character than this 200-million-dollar blockbuster.

Haven't seen any of those films, but the smallest modicum of effort would immediately put it leagues ahead of Rogue One.

I feel like I remember you saying at one point that you gave the first Kung fu Panda a 2/10.

I remember that too. 
As do I.

9/10 film right there.

The first one is so good.  The 2nd was alright.  And the third was nice.  Really, the villain is what set the first one apart.  Ian McShane was awesome.

The first Kung fu Panda is a future classic.

Can also remember.

Now is it Berenstein or Berenstain Bears?

The prison escape scene was really badass. Great way to set up your villain.

All of them are great. My personal favorite would honestly probably be the second one.

I love the scene where he fights all of the 5 masters on the bridge and completely destroys them.  That was such a cool fight scene too.

The one where Po goes through the same exact character arc as he did in the first?

Probably said it just to irritate someone. Can't be sure though, I don't remember that.

That's my problem with the third one. Po really regresses as a character.

IIRC, it was in response to Braden's favorite films.

I felt like the third was him coming to terms with his past rather than coming into his own strength, like the first one (and the 2nd one shamelessly copied)

Never saw it because I found the title so cringey. Same with How to Train Your Dragon.

Judging a movie by its title is really stupid.
