Question for the Week of August 11 2011


How do you feel about the upcoming live-action/CG animated Hong Kong Phooey movie that will feature Eddie Murphy in the lead role?

    The show only ran for one season with 16 episodes. Why is a film being made?

    I remember watching this as a kid and made me think of not going into animation, if this was the direction it was headed.

    Everyone involved in the project, I wish good luck and success.

    I’m not a fan of these live action, H-B based films, save for “The Flintstones.” It’s not even the bad CG entirely that makes me anything but excited, it’s also the “modernizing” of these beloved characters. These films actually take cool characters and make them dumb for the new generation, and I’m just not a fan of that.

    I’d love this new film to prove me wrong, but I’m not holding my breathe.

    Will it sound like “Donkey” with a black belt? Or does he do a great Scatman Crothers imitation (the original HKF voice)? Either way…I’m still waiting for Jonny Quest to make it to the big screen.

  • Shell

    I agree with milo. Frankly, many of the live action/CG animated films with old cartoon characters haven’t been worth paying to see in the theatre. I have low hopes for this movie being any different.
