"Do you think God stays in heaven because he, too, lives in fear of what he created?"
"Another classic film from Pixar: This time it's the post-apocalyptic family movie. Probably the last one in that genre we're gonna get — until we get that Thundarr the Barbarian remake I've been waiting on for so long."
"There are quite a few aspects to the plot that an adult mind might question more than a child's would, like the one where you have to go inside a pregnant woman's vagina in order to dislodge her unborn children, only to find them being harassed by a giant octopus blocking the way to the cervix. Can't we all just stop being so cynical and appreciate the octopus abortion sequence in the innocent spirit in which it was meant?"
"After all, these are just simple movies made for kids and not adults at all. That's why they have... -Assassination attempts. Sexual innuendo. Decapitations. Kidnap, torture, and suggested rape. Hookers. Boring political dialogue. Forced amputations. Drug dealing. Mass murder..."
"Our future society is desperately bloodthirsty. When they fight, you see people just foaming at the mouth out of excitement at the destruction. It's a kid's movie!"
— Bayer and Snider, Movie B.S. on Real Steel
"That bastard. I can't forgive him, not after he sent my grandpa to the Shadow Realm."
"The what realm?"
"You know, the Shadow Realm. The big, purply cloudy place that you go to when something really bad happens to you."
"I think you're talking about Hell."
"No, it's the Shadow Realm. You know, whenever people fall from a really tall building or get stabbed in the chest, they go straight to the Shadow Realm. What, you guys don't have the Shadow Realm in the future?"
"I don't think that's a real thing."
"Wait... is my grandpa... really dead?"
"Afraid so broseph."
"I thought this was supposed to be a kid's movie!"
"Am I exaggerating? At one point, the evil Rat King (John Turturro) has his troopers snatch toys from the hands of children so they can be tossed into furnaces, and the smoke will emerge from high chimneys to blot out the sun. [...] You may be in disbelief. I was. 'The Nutcracker in 3D' is one of those rare holiday movies that may send children screaming under their seats. Their parents, naively hoping to see a sweet version of “The Nutcracker,” will be appalled or angry, take your choice."
"I collect official 'BIG SERVICE' licensed merchandise. I have offic-oh, god! I have official 'BIG SERVICE' DOLLS... Official 'BIG SERVICE' brand clothing... And officially licensed 'BIG SERVICE' picture books?! Aaaaaaaahhhhhh...those are not appropriate for children!"
RK_Striker_JK_5: I think I forgot how effed up Sailor Moon could really get...
ANT Pogo: Yeah. "Cute show for little girls about a sailor-suited pretty soldier of love and justice who in reality is a ditzy middle-schooler and OH GOD OH FUCK WHAT WAS THAT WHAT DID I JUST SEE OH GOD!"
AUDIENCE: We did not think we were bringing our kids to a movie where… Clockwork Orange types… ran after girls in their underwear through forests. That was not something we thought.
Although there is no gratuitous gore or naked women, "Ga'Hoole" is still as awesome as any of Snyder's other movies. The action is still very present and gets really in-your-face should one be fortunate to see it in IMAX 3D. With artful wind-furrowed banners and slow-motion/fast-motion action sequences that he has become so famous for, Snyder has created something truly badass for all ages, as if he's found a way to make Jaegerbombs suitable for children and adults.
Servo: (as the kid) So evil wins, Grandpa?
Crow: (as Grandpa Borgnine) That's right, even your tiny soul is doomed.
Servo: (as the kid) No, Grandpa Borgnine, leave light and hope for me! Please!
Crow: (as Grandpa Borgnine) Get out from behind that cushion, Billy! It gets worse!
