Tom and Jerry seek the big screen
Warner Bros. has announced that everyone's favorite cat and mouse duo, Tom and Jerry, will be transformed into a big budget film. This could be good news, but unfortunately these days studios are all about overlapping CG characters in a live-action world (ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, GARFIELD). I miss the good ol' 2-D cartoon look. This TOM AND JERRY movie could still have some potential (What's not to love about an uber-violent childhood cartoon?), but unfortunately what potential this movie could have might be squashed by the story.
The story of the movie explores the origins of Tom and Jerry's first meeting and why they hate one another (Does a cat really need a historical reason to hate a tasty little rodent?) Now the story gets even better: Tom and Jerry find themselves lost in chicago and are forced to put aside their petty dispute in order to forge a partnership that can help get them back home.
Why must everything these days be so politically correct? They have to take two sworn enemies that have a mile-long history of hitting each-other in the head, lighting each-other on fire, electrocuting each-other, and more, and help bring these two animals together to be friends, ignoring all animal instincts. Why not have them simply beat the crap out of each-other like the cartoon's creators intended? I do hope Warner Bros. finds some way to turn this project around, otherwise another classic will be defamed by an unfair update.
