One of two things has occurred. Either the Internet has managed to open up a wormhole that allows users to view websites in the year 1996, or Warner Bros. has paid to operate and maintain the official Space Jam website for nearly 15 years. Either way, that’s f*cked up!

Granted, I doubt Warner Bros. had to pay much. In fact, based on the layout, I’m surprised Geocities isn’t in the URL. But looking at this old site did bring back a lot of fond memories, all of which involved 3.5 inch floppy disks filled to capacity with pictures of topless women. Of course, “capacity” meant about 10 pictures, depending on the size and quality. But at the time, that was enough, unlike now, where it takes an hour of HD quality transgender ATM just to get me aroused.

But we’re not here to talk about trannys jamming things in to spaces. We’re here to talk about Space Jam. I was a huge fan of the film. In fact, they used to call me “Space Jame!” For those of you who don’t remember, the plot involved Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny playing a group of aliens in a basketball game, and ended with Yosemite Sam shooting Jordan’s father over an unpaid gambling debt. What, too soon? (Topless Robot)

That’s Not All, Folks for Bugs Bunny http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/thats-not-all-folks-for-bugs-bunny/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/thats-not-all-folks-for-bugs-bunny/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Warner Bros is determined to bring back that rascally rabbit Bugs Bunny, sans Brendan Fraser and Michael Jordan this time. David Berenbaum (The Spiderwick Chronicles) has been hired to write Bugs Bunny, a live action/CG feature film. The studio must want to jump on the new wave of reviving old cartoon characters through the use of computer magic. As of late, we've been subjected to Marmaduke, The Smurfs, and Yogi Bear, and now the "Looney Tunes" bin is being raided. I've been a huge fan of Bugs Bunny for as long as I can remember. The "Looney Tunes" cartoons were way ahead of their time, and the talented Mel Blanc, who voiced Bugs along with Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig, managed to create a stable of characters whose catch phrases will live on forever. I especially enjoyed when he'd raise his voice an octive when Bugs dressed up like a girl bunny. There's a fine line between pre-op and post-op delivery, and he nailed it. (Deadline)

‘Looney Tunes’ Headed Back to the Big (and Small) Screen http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/looney-tunes-headed-back-to-the-big-and-small-screen/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/looney-tunes-headed-back-to-the-big-and-small-screen/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Coyote Falls"? I don't get it? After years in hiding, Bugs Bunny and the gang are headed back to the big screen. In a throwback to the golden age of Warner Brothers cartoons, the studio is releasing three 3D shorts that will run in theaters before feature-length films. In addition, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are getting their own 26 episode show on Cartoon Network.This is the first major announcement from the Looney Tunes since they were sexually assaulted by NBA great Michael Jordan on the set of Space Jam 14 years ago Brendan Fraser on the set of Looney Tunes: Back in Action 7 years ago. Since cartoon characters are not protected under the law, Brendan got off on a technicality. But the event was so traumatizing that Bugs and company quit showbiz and hadn't been heard from since. Luckily, time heals all wounds, even the really stretched out cartoon kind.The first of the shorts, "Coyote Falls", will appear before the film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, which sounds stupid and opens on July 30. The TV series will premiere this fall, and will probably be canceled next spring. That's all, folks! (Coming Soon)
