Tom n Jerry movie

01.22.2009

Warner Bros. has announced plans to pimp a little more of your childhood for a couple of bucks with a franchise based on the classic animated series TOM AND JERRY. Eric Gravning will script an origin story that reveals how Tom and Jerry first meet and form their rivalry before getting lost in Chicago and reluctantly working together during an arduous journey home.

As stupid and lazy as this sounds, it has sadly gotten to the point where such developments have become mundane. It's like that time Adriana Lima left my penthouse because as she put it, I was too much man for her. Was I disappointed? Sure. Was I surprised at her decision? No, not at all.
Extra Tidbit: You can thank the success of ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNK for this thing.

Hear that screaming sound?

It's the sound of my childhood memories being raped again and again by the film studios who think this kind of crap is a good idea.

Make it guys in a giant mouse and cat out fits, like the first three TMNT movies. I'd pay good money to see that. And there should be some Matrix kung fu too. Cause I remember that from the show.

This is joke, right?

Do we really need a T&J "prequel"? Cats chase mice its THAT SIMPLE!! Or they trying to imply Tom was gay or a mouse lover or something before their never ending beef started??!!?

Plus what zany anttics are they going to use which have never been done before, BESIDES the obvious pop-culture reference gags?

Make a new cartoon series instead of a 90min flick!

The Tom & Jerry movie from the 90s was one of the worst movies ever made!

Please leave them alone!

They fight, and fight...

GOD I'm sick of these classic cartoons turned into CGI cinematic hogwash. I'm pretty sure it'll be done in the Garfield/Chipmunks live-action CGI style and not the Who Framed Roger Rabbit traditional hand-drawn animated style.

And Tom 'n Jerry is so dated, why not do Itchy & Scratchy 'stead? I bet you more people would be interested in that, make it PG-13(for animated violence) to broaden its appeal to an older age group in addition to young kids and you pull in a larger audience meaning

No CGI though, keep it hand-drawn animated Simpsons style. :)

everyone knows a 10 times better idea would be the "itchy and scratchy" feature film, with 3-D violence in blood red squirt-o-vision !!

now thats an idea !! and if simpsons guys pay me for it, i'll secretly fund a sequel to team america, and kick start the family guy flick...

youre welcome.

tom & jerry

It'll be interesting how they portray the cartoon to real life if that's how they'll be doing this film, maybe CGI characters and live people? I don't know but all the shit that happens in the cartoon would be cool to see in a live action film, Tom and Jerry beating the crap out of each other...good stuff.

uuuum,I'm going to try to bite my tongue on this. I loved T&J as much as the next kid, "Kid" being the key word there. So I'll do just that. Leave it to the kiddies.....No, nut seriously, F*CK this. Ok I've said my piece.

So is it a CGI rendering of tom and jerry like chipmunks was (which would suck), or an actual cartoon (which would suck less).

Wasn't there a tom and jerry movie from the 90's, where they could both talk. What the hell was that?

This could be good, as long as they respectfully maintain the high level of violence that made the cartoon so lovable. If Tom isn't flattened by an anvil, blown up by fireworks, burned with a hot iron, or severly electricuted throughout the whole of the movie, then it's going to be no good.
