  1. Hold up…..millenials weren’t born until the early to mid 90s (at least that’s what I’ve always heard). Transformers the movie came out over 30 years ago (1986). I was 6 when it dropped and I just turned 38 almost a week ago. How can those in their late 30s and older be considered millenials? Maybe the Beast Wars fans are in that group but not those who remember seeing Prime eat it on the big screen.

  2. “This one was a real shocker” Okay I’m sure most people would be surprised by this, but I’m not, I watched enough of Batman Beyond (which is canon) to know that these two had at one point a complicated relationship in which they eventually broke up from each other. Batman has always been a story of mystery, action, thrills, chills, and drama. People don’t seem to realize that this scene along with the rest of the movie is most likely made to be apart of Batman’s animated universe.

  3. Pretty sure most of these weren’t designed with children in mind. Wizards was inspired by the work of underground comix master Vaughn Bode for instance. And if any parent rented Plague Dogs or Watership Down for their children the parents deserve being kept up all night with their crying children. Batman The Killing Joke was R-rated so kids shouldn’t be seeing that (not that a determined kid would let that stop them 🙂 and the killing scene in Bambi? Look at some of the cartoons during the 30s and 40s and you certainly will see similar scenes (the first Casper short from the mid-40s is downright horrifying in how IT handles it’s death scene).

    And Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Inspired by the old Tex Avery/Preston Blair Wolf and Red shorts of the early-late 40s. I have The Compleat Tex Avery on Laserdisc (5 glorious discs full of all Tex Avery’s MGM stuff) and he was capable of some pretty racy stuff!
